New smart array controller dl 160 gen10

hi everyone,

I have a doubt, I bought a dl 160 gen10 server with 4 1.2TB sas disks and 3 240gb SSD disks. my problem is that the controller that comes inside is the S100i that only recognizes sata disk. my question is: can i buy a new controller 869079-B21 -HPE Smart Array E208i-a SR G10 LH Ctrlr + 866448-B21 -HPE DL160 / 120 Gen10 8SFF SAS Cbl Kit and configure one array for ssd disks and another for sas?

thanks,

As mentioned, S100i supports only SATA drives. You may proceed to install 869079-B21 -HPE Smart Array E208i-a SR G10 LH Ctrlr + 866448-B21 -HPE DL160 / 120 Gen10 8SFF SAS Cbl Kit and configure one array for SSD's and another for SAS.

Thank you

Sorry for the late question but I just found out I'm in the same situation here and need the SMART ARRAY E208I-A SR G10 LH CTRLR so I can use ESXI on the server - what I can't figure out is if I need any new cabling to go with this. I've insatlled SATA SSD drives, so I don't need SAS - do I just reroute existing data cables, I can't find any reference to data cables other than SAS ones.

Thanks
