hi

you can use dual port SAS HDDs for that controller but but you won't advantage of the dual porting since p400 only will use 1 port

dual port SAS HDD is for real storage system were controllers support dual port SAS HDD but meaning using both ports

Re: P400 SAS controller and Dual Port disc

Hi Karlo,

thanks for that!
My point is: I got a DL380G5 with that controller and two dual port disks (RAID1). I am wondering if I can exchange one of the dual port disks by a single port. (both 146GB 10K). I have searched all docs but couldn't find an answer.

Thanks
