How to Cable an EVA8000 for 2C4D configuration?

I need to cable an EVA8000 for a 2C4D configuration without loop switches...does anyone know how or have a diagram that shows the proper cabling of the drive enclosures? Seems the docs I can find go from 2C2D to 2C6D...is this possible without loop switchs???

On the EVA-4000 and -6000 you can run up to 4 disk drive enclosures without loop switches. As the EVA-8000 has two back-end loop pairs you can *theoretically* run a 2C8D without loop switches.

To cable a single loop pair, I would use the EVA-4000 2C4D as an example. You can find the layout in the "HP StorageWorks 4000/6000/8000 Enterprise Virtual Array hardware configuration guide" (5697-5342) on page 40.

Hi,
I have never tried it. I would use the attached cabling scheme. Hope this helps.
