Fit a G1 I/O MSA2000 module to a G3 P2000 chassis?

Hi

 

I would like to extend our current MSA2000 G1 SAN setup with a new enclosure chassis.

 

In the past i've purchased an AJ748A – HP MSA2000 3.5in Single I/O 12 Drive Enclosure, but these don't seem available anymore.

 

Do I now need to buy an AP838B HP StorageWorks P2000 Modular Smart Array 3.5-inch Drive Bay Chassis, and then fit a AJ751A HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 2000 Drive Enclosure I/O Module.

 

In short, can I fit a G1 I/O module to a G3 chassis?

 

Any help appreciated,

 

Andrew

While you can't purchase these new, have you tried after-market suppliers?  I've had a lot of success with equipment from World Data Products, Ambry and ChestnutMicro.  I still pay to put the equipment under our support agreement with HP, so I'm not flying without a net.  That original part number you listed (AJ748A) shows as available on World Data's and Ambry's site.
