Adding a second MSA 20 to existing system?

I have a DL360 G4 with Smart Array 642 connected to a MSA 20 which has 12 disks in it, i.e is full. I want to expand my storage. I believe, the easiest solution is to get another MSA 20, but is it possible to just daisy chain it from the first MSA 20 as the 642 only has one external SCSI connector?

As far as i know, no, you can't daisy chained two MSA's, by default MSA20 just have one SCSI I/0 Conector from the MSA20 to the Server. I tried to look around for a second controller kit, but I didn't even get information about it.

Hello,
buy a SA6402 Controller and change it with yout SA642.
Then you can connect two MSA20 on the server.
