Hi there! :-)
We're looking at implementing a SAS storage architecture using the new DL380 gen5 and are a little confused as to how the embedded P400 controller can support 18 drives.
On this page:
it states that the P400 has 2 internal ports and 0 external, which sounds about right, but that it supports 18 SAS/SATA devices. Now, I know that the server only takes 8 drives internally, so I'm guessing the other 10 would be in an MSA50 external enclosure... but how do you physically connect the enclosure if both ports are internal?!?
many thanks for the help! :-)
