MSA1000 Conroller CLI Cable Pin out...

I'm looking for the pin out for thr CLI cable for the MSA1000 controller found in the MSA1500cs.

 

I have to make my own cable as even though HP has them on their US site they are not available here in canada.

Cables are about $26 on HP Parts store. Found a selleron Ebay that is selling them for $65 but I'm not willing to pay that markup for a cable that i can make myself for under $25 !

 

Any help woul be appreciated.

I just used this on my EVA4400 and after filing down the connector to deal with the notch in the jack, it works great. All credit goes to Steve Hobday who posted on that forum post above.
