EVA 5000 disk loopswitch upgrade

We are upgrading EVA5000 (2C4D) from noswitched configuration to switched configureation.

we have got copper FC cable of 7 qty with new loop switch.

We are not got any additional FC cable.

Question:
1. can we mix the cable of loop switch to encloser both Fibrechannel copper and fibre cable?.
2. we have another kind of copper cables that extend the encloser. can we connect that cable between loopswitch to encloser.

In EVA8K I could see enloser to loop switch copper cable.

Also recent upgrade on EVA5K also copper cable between loopswitch to encloser.

Did any one has done these upgrade and suggestion on cables useage?

Thanks in advance for your help in advance

Re: EVA 5000 disk loopswitch upgrade

1. Yes. We have a mixture in our configuration (HP field engineers installed the loop switches and mixed cable configuration).
2. Probably, but I don't know that for sure.
