Connect MSA 2042 to HP Switch, for 10 GB iSCSI

Hi, I purchased these HP devices:

1 MSA 2042 SAN, C8R09A

2 Switch HP JH295A in which they are already present in 12 RJ45 copper ports to 10 GB and 4 MINIGBIC

1 Server HP Proliant DL360 Gen9 with additional network adapter with 2 copper ports 10GB  

the target is to activate an infrastructure to 10 GB copper iSCSI.  

I also purchased 1 set of 4 transmitters to 10GB iSCSI C8R25A, but I found that the attack is of a conventional type Fiber and NOT a convetional RJ45 attack, !  

What I have to then purchase codes to connect SAN and Switch to get the 10 GB for the ISCSI, using RJ45 copper cables?

Thanks to all, sorry for my english

Hello,

only 1GB RJ45 SFPs are available for MSA2042. 10GB is only over fibre. So you need 4 SFP+ Gbics for the 1950 Switches.

HPE X130 10G SFP+ LC SR Transceiver JD092B  

HPE X132 10G SFP+ LC SR Transceiver J9150A

or you try these supported (Switch and MSA) DAC Cables which are cheaper:

HPE FlexNetwork X240 10G SFP+ to SFP+ 1.2m Direct Attach Copper Cable JD096C 

HPE FlexNetwork X240 10G SFP+ to SFP+ 3m Direct Attach Copper Cable JD097C 

HPE FlexNetwork X240 10G SFP+ to SFP+ 5m Direct Attach Copper Cable JG081C
