DL380 G9 Bay 1 - 8 drive expansion cage cable issue

I have an HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 (803860-B21) which has HP 12Gb SAS Expander Card (727250-B21) and 16 drives installed in bay 2 and 3.

I am trying to add a 3rd cage to take it to 24 drives and have installed the cage and power cables from the recommended kit 719067-B21.  My problem is that the only SAS cable in that kit is for connecting to PCI SAS and not suitable for the Mini SAS connections on the sas expansion card.

Can anyone advise what cable part number I need to connect the new cage to the SAS controller ?

I have attached a diagram of the cable in question from a HP document (http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c04436999) it is the red cable on the left of the picture that runs around a different direction to the other 2.

i assume the SAS expander ships with all cables, so you probably received them in a box with the system.

Hope this helps!

I believe the DL380 Gen9 Server User Guide might show what you need.

However, I hate to hijack your post, but my server sounds like it is configured exactly like yours.  However, I'm trying to get my drive cage in Bay 2 powered.  My primary drive cage is in Bay 3 and is just fine.  I assumed I needed the same power cable that Bay 3 is using (747560-001) but after connecting Bay 2 I get no power.  I don't know if I need to "enable" the power somehow or if I have the wrong cable.  Is there anyway you could tell me what cable (part number) you are using for your cage in Bay 2?  I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks!!
