@Devdatta cool, thanks for the assistance.

@NimaG so yes, I assume that I can just daisy chained or continue expanding the array with additional disk shelf from the last shelf ?

(continue the SAS cable connection from the last shelf to the new one).

Hello,

In the document, instructions are for disk enclosures being added above the controller enclosure, with the existing disk enclosures placed below the controller enclosure.
The kit contains two SAS mini-cables (0.5 meter/1 foot 7 inch)

I'll need following information to advise further.

What is the current configuration? I understand you are adding one disk enclosure.
How are the disk enclosures and controller enclosure placed in the rack? Where will the new disk enclosure be placed?
Are you planning to add the disk enclosure online, or offline?

The offline method is preferred if downtime is available. In that case, you may arrange the disk enclosures as shown in the attached diagram (example of P6300 2C6D) and cable them in daisy chain.

Nima
