ML 350P LFF Drive expansion

We have a Proliant ML350P with built in 6 drive bay.  We ordered another 6 drive cage kit (PN:659485-B21), but it did not come with a power cable.  Also, I want to use this with the existing SAS RAID controller.  How do you go about cabling the new drive array to the mini SAS a&b?  Do you daisy chain the cables as there are only two connectors on the motherboard?

Can I just order a backplane power connector or do I need to order a new cage?

What is the correct part number to make this work in our server?

Thanks,

John

Re: ML 350P LFF Drive expansion

Hi Suman,

 

Thanks for the reply.  I did find the information about the additional RAID card elsewhere and ordered it.  It came in today and I was able to add it to the HP server in an epansion slot.  Now I still have two problems.  

1..  The SAS cables that came wtih the cage are not long enough

2. The cage did not come with a power cable.  

I can order 1meter SAS Cables separately, but how do we get the power cable?

Thanks in advance,

John

Re: ML 350P LFF Drive expansion

We are still having problems with this drive cage.  We ordered a RAID card but found that the cage was missing a power cable.  The company we ordered the part sent a cable but it is not correct.  The second cage uses a different power cable than the first.  Can you find the correct part number to allow an HP 2nd cage to connect power?

 

Thanks,

John
