Could some please confirm what SAS cable is needed for this drive (EH957A)

We have been given part AP746A but we believe it could be 518885-003 

can someone please confirm if this is correct or let us know what part we need.

Thanks in advance for your help.

519767-001 looks good for this internal drive. Look up the parts at

partsurfer.hpe.com


Hope this helps!

Hi 

Thank you for the suggestion but the cable has an addtional power connector specifically for this 3000

See "what is in the box" : mini-SAS SFF8482 to SFF8087 cable

https://h10057.www1.hp.com/ecomcat/hpcatalog/specs/provisioner/05/EH957A.htm

 

Not sure "where" you want to connect it.


Hope this helps!

Re: LTO-5 Ultrium 3000

Hi Torsten

Many thanks for your help.
However it seems that the Ultrium 3000 SAS is one of the only LTO-5 drives that needs the extra power connector to connect directly to the PSU (molex)
Please see attached from the HP website

Thanks again...

Re: LTO-5 Ultrium 3000

Just for anyone that was following this, the correct part number is 518885-003

Not sure if this can be bought separately, but luckily tracked down a new one on the bay..

Thanks for posting your results Jason.

If you have any thoughts on my issue here I'd greatly appreciate them - or even just to know which SAS controller you ended up using (obviously yours was an internal tape drive vs my external drive though):

Re: LTO-5 Ultrium 3000

Hi Rob.

After reading your post I don't think I can offer a lot of help really, I'm sorry.

The card we used is a Smart HBA H240

The only thing that I can think, is that as this tape drive needs a separate power connection that maybe its not getting enough juice from the PSU? But thats just a slim chance..
