SAS Cable Question for LTO tape backup

I have a DL380 Gen10 with a HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 562FLR-SFP+ Adapter. Two SAS cables attach to one port on each drive in the Autoloader.

Is it possible to double the data throughput by using a fanout cable from the interface to the drive - thus connecting two SAS cables into the drive? (The drive has two ports for SFF-8088 style connectors)

If so, which fanout cable would be supported?

This is network.

This is SAS, not network.

>> Is it possible to double the data throughput by using a fanout cable

No, this is a redundant path (dual domain), the second can be used if the first failed.


Hope this helps!
