DL370 G6 Config Issue

Hi,
I have a DL370 G6 Performance, with the P410i/512MB BBWC Module. I also have the 2 Bay LFF Drive Cage and the 6 Bay LFF Drive Cage.

I cannot see anywhere to connect these to the Motherboard. I have 4 Cables to connect but from what I can see only 2 connections.

Thanks
Dave

Thanks for the response. It's the Cables to connect the Drive Cages to the Motherboard.

According to the Quickspecs you only need the SAS Expander Card when adding a 2nd SFF Drive Cage. The SFF Drive Cage will be removed and replaced with the LFF Drive Cage. The 2 Drive LFF Cage will sit in the Media Bay.

its not possible. if u have more then one cage with 2 SAS connectors u will need the expander card. all smart array controllers from HP can handle only 2 SAS connections. else u need the expander card
