DL380 G6 cable for P800 to connect internal drives

Had our first DL380 G6 install this week and came across a big problem from the off.

Ordered a P800 controller to connect to the internal drives for perfromance as we had done for DL380 G5 servers.

Problem is that the G6 now use SFF-8087 connectors and cables for internal connections.
P800 has SFF-8484 connectors so cable was not going to work.

Searched all HP sites and part numbers, but no sign of a SFF-8484 to SFF-8087 cable. Have checked with our HP technical guys to see will this cable be released and when.

Adaptec do have these cables, but I only want to use HP approved kit.

Just in case anyone else plans to use P800 for internal drives, might be easier to buy 512/BBWC option for internal 410i.

Hi Erkle

I guess you need SAS to Mini SAS Cables.
Following are the compatible SAS to Mini SAS Cables available for P800 controllers.

SAS 4x to Mini SAS 4x 1m,3Gb # 419570-B21
SAS 4x to Mini SAS 4x 2m,3Gb # 419571-B21
SAS 4x to Mini SAS 4x 4m,3Gb # 419572-B21

Hope this helps ;-)
