P600 SmartArray connecting to MSA60

Hello all,

I have a P600 SmartArray controller I wish to connect to my MSA60 Storage Enclosure.

I have the cable that shipped with the MSA60 (Part Number: 407344-001) but it does not fit the connector on the P600.

Is Part Number: 389662-B21 HP Multi-Lane Cable - Serial ATA / SAS cable - 2.5 ft the correct item to make this connection.

Thanks in advance!

According to HP Product Bulletin MSA60 is compatible only with P800 controller. In which case you would need on of the following cables:

"Cables for use connecting the Smart Array P800 Controller with the HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 60 and HP Storage Works Modular Smart Array 70.

Mini SAS 4x 2M Cable - 407339-B21
Mini SAS 4x 4M Cable - 432238-B21
Mini SAS 4x 6M Cable - 432239-B21"

That was my suspicion but wanted a second look to make sure I was not daft!

Thank you again.

Re: P600 SmartArray connecting to MSA60

So if I understood that right, the P600 can't be used with the MSA70? Or can I purchase a cable which fits at the one end in the P600 and at the other end in the MSA70?

According to

http://www3.penta.com.tr/katalog/pdf/swd/msa70.pdf

The MSA70 also supports the P600. However, I do not know which cable to use for the connection. Can anybody help and provide a HP part number?
