What cables to use

Hello Forum,

Kind of newbie question, but we've bought a P6550 and 2 EVA4400's 
On the P6550 controllers are 4 FC, and 2 SAS ports per controller.
The FC ports are to connect/provide access to servers, and the SAS ports to connect the EVA4400.

Only thing is, cables to EVA are missing and I cant figure out which type to use.
There are Y cables and normal ones
Can anyone provide info on what types are compatible and what is the better option?
or must it always be Ycables?

Tnx

Re: What cables to use

Do you have several EVA models or just the P6550 and a couple of disk chassis? The P6550 is using Y-cables to the disks in order to create 2 "loops" for disk access.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: What cables to use

This is P6550 back-end

This is EVA440 shelf (AG638B controller)

Re: What cables to use

AG638B is the M6412 chassis used by EVA4400, the P6000 is using M6625 and M6612 disk chassis.

EVA4400 backend (disks/disk enclosure) is fibre channel, P6000 is SAS.

I guess this won't work.
