P600 Controller to a SAS LTO2 (448) Tape Drive

Is there a cable that will go between a P600 & a LTO2 tape device. I need to order both the cable & device if there is a working combo. The Ultrium 448 would seem to be what I need, but I don't think the cable the it comes with will plug into a P600 Controller...

Hi Mike,

sorry for saying this but p600 is not the best choise. I hope someone else will say this to from the HP experts but according quickspecs it(p600) is not supported:

Here are the supported controllers:
