Start Array P400 and SATA disks

Hi there,

I recently found a P400 controller in the back of a cupboard and would like to use it in an ML110 G5, with a pair of SATA disks. The connectors on the P400 are too big for a standard SATA cable (I'm guessing they're SAS connectors?).

Is there an adapter or cable I need to buy to allow the P400 to work with standard SATA disks?

Several resellers list this item "452130-B21 - SAS/SATA 4x1LN Port Cable Kit", but none have a picture of the cable, so it's impossible to say if it's the right thing.

Any ideas anyone?

TIA,

S.

Hi,

according quickspecs you need this cable

HP SAS/SATA 4-Port Cable
NOTE: The purchase of a SAS Storage Controller requires the purchase of HP SAS/SATA 4-Port Cable 430479-B21
NOTE: SAS Storage Controllers will run both SATA and SAS drives.

now saw that P400 is not officially supported in the server, but the cable should be the same, since they have the same x4 connector

Hi Pac,

thanks for the part code. Will that cable work with non HP, standard SATA drives?

Cheers,
