Ultrium 448 & SA P212 Compatibility issue

I am building a P212 and Ultrium448 into a ML350G6.

Main problem is that tapedrive is incomplete.
The SAS cable and screws are missing. So I need to contact HP.

But what kind of cable is it. Because I have read some of the documents shipped with the 448 and I can't see how that cable (Internal 4-channel split SAS cable) would connect to the P212.

According to the quick specs the Ultrium 448 (P/N DW085A) and the smart-array P212 (P/N 462828-B21) are compatible.

Anyone an idea ?

In the quickspecs of the P212 I found the following part.

HP StorageWorks Mini-SAS Cable for LTO Internal Tape Drive AP746A

Should I order this one.

Yes, that's the one. I checked with the lab and you need kit AP746A which is a cable to connect LTO2 SAS internal drive to a G6 controller.
It's more interesting when it's gone wrong
