MSA 2040 SAS how to connect to SAN SWITCH

Hello,
I've just bought a MSA 2040 SAS, looks like it's lack of knowledge since I need to connect to a SAN SWITCH, not direct to server.

Now I don't know how to do, can anyone tell me some good way for this situation.
SAN Switch is "Cisco 8Gb Fibre Channel SAN Switch DS-C9148-16P-K9"

Thank you very much!

sorry, you cannot.
SAS is for SAS connectivity only.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Hi Torsten,
Is there a converter from SAS port to Fibre port?
