HP DL380e G8 12+2 LFF with P420


We just purchased some DL380e G8 with the 12+2 LFF configuration, I have added a P420 Pcie controller and attached the 2 SAS cables to the expander, after that I have added 14 HDDs inside the enclosure.

If I open the smart storage administrator, I do see all 14 disks except they are only visible on one SAS port, is this by default or do I need to change something? On all my DL380p I see a split between the 2 SAS ports.

Is this normal behaviour?
