MAS2000 Dual I/O 3.5" 12 Drive Enclosure

Hi folks,

We have a spare MAS2000 Dual I/O 3.5" 12 Drive Enclosure containing 12 drives of 300 GB. It has two SAS ports on the back. We would like to use it with one of our HP DL580 servers. I have three questions:

1. Is it possible to use it with HP DL580 server using HP SmartArray Controller?

If yes, then

2. What HP SmartArray controller should I purchase which allows me to connect to this external drive enclosure using SAS ports?

3. What cable do I need to purchase which connects the controller to drive enclosure? i.e. mini-SAS to mini-SAS or SAS to mini-SAS?

Appreciate for all your help.

Thanks,
NI

Direct connection of MSA2000 Dual I/O 3.5" Drive Enclosure to server is not supported. You need to upgrade this enclosure to the MSA2000 G2 SAS Array or to the P2000 G3 SAS array by replacing I/O modules with SAS RAID controllers.

To upgrade to the MSA2000 G2 SAS Array you need to buy 2 x AJ808A HP MSA2300sa G2 controller. To connect this array to the server you need one or two HP SC08Ge 3Gb HBA (488765-B21) and two mini-SAS 4x 2M Cable (407339-B21).

To upgrade to the P2000 G3 SAS Array you need to buy 2 x AW592A HP P2000 G3 SAS controller. To connect this array to the server you need one or two HP SC08e 6Gb HBA (614988-B21) and two mini-SAS 4x 2M Cable (407339-B21).
