HP DL380P Gen8 SAS Expander

Dear Team,

I'm trying to expand the storage for my Dl380p Gen8 server. I bought an additional 8 bay cage for this job, Because the existing cage is fully loaded. I need to expand the existing array & I have spent lot of time for the same. finally I got a solution with p830 controller with primary and secondary cable kit. Each cage have 2 SAS ports (2+2 = 4). But the p830 controller have only 2 SAS ports.

 

My question is “How the cage and controller will connect to each other ?”

 

I am not getting any picture of the cable from HPE or Internet .If you have this picture please share with me.

 

Please not I have spent hell lot of time by calling HP level 1 & 2 engineers. They don’t have any single picture of this cable , I have contacted several distributors and supplier & they also not aware of this product. Now what I will do?
