Microserver Gen8 with P222 and Storageworks 1/8 G2 with 1760 SAS Drive

Hello together!

I hope someone can help me here.

I have a Microserver Gen8 with a P222 Raid Controller inside with 4 3TB SATA drives as Raid5. All working perfectly with Server 2012R2.

Now I am planing a backup system. I have a quiet old Storageworks Autoloader 1/8 G2. I am planing to place a LTO4 SAS drive in it taken from an MSL2024.

First question is - will that work?

What kind of cable (Partnumber and/or description) do I need? Mini SAS, 8087, 8088 or what? I am confused a bit when I am reading information in WEB.

Where can I get possible firmware updates (if needed) as a private person?

I hope someone can help me!

Kind regards

Lutz

Hello,

With regards to compatibility we should be checking the quickspecs for the  particular storagework prodcuct to determine what are the supported HBA , server and the SAS cables.

 

https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/getdocument.aspx?docname=c04123270 

According to  Microserver Gen8 Quick specs LTO 4 SAS is not listed as supported option.

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c03793585#N101AC 

With respect LTO 4 SAS interface type is uses following:

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c01446208 

  • SAS internal: Mini-SAS Small Form Factor (SFF)8482

  • SAS external: Mini-SAS SFF8088

Hope this helps,

Hello McCoy!

 

That was quite helpfull for me.

But another question:

If I use a p222 and SATA drives are connected internal is it possible to connect a library (MSL2024 with 2 LTO4 SAS drives) externally with a fanout cable (AN975A)?

With kind regards
