DL360 G6 with P212/ZM connected to MSA60 Error

Hello,

I have a problem with DL360G6 connected to a MSA60 via P212/ZM
I get the following error
1746-Slot 2 Drive Array - Unsupported Storage Connection Detected
SAS connection via expander is not supported on this controller model. Access to all storage has been disabled. Upgrade controller or detach the expander based storage connections.

Can you, please, help me?

Thank you!

The expander that is mentioned here is the "SAS expander unit" that is built in to the MSA60. It switches the 4 ports coming from the SA controller to the 12 ports of the MSA60 drives and other MSA cascaded enclosures.

Apparently the ZM version of the P212 does not allow you to connect to an expander.

There is no mention of this limitation in the quickspecs (at least I could not find any). The only limitation that is mentiooned for the P212/ZM is that it only does raid0, 1 and 10.

The expander in the MSA60 is very similar to this expander card. http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13232_div/13232_div.html

Do you have the latest firmware in the P212? I am thinking may this limitation is removed in the recent firmware. Or HP needs to update the P212/ZM limitations.

same issue for me.
even the latest FW 3.66 for the P212 doesn't fix it :(

P212 with memory cache/battery is supported. Maybe the zero memory ZM version is not.

Yes, SA P212 with BBWC module supports MSA60. I tested it.
