As stated in title:  We're trying to connect a HP StorageWorks Ultrium 920 SAS tape unit to a Cybernetics miSAN D.  We have the cables for the HP.  Does anyone know of an adapter or (ideally) a cable that is made to connect the two? If so, please provide sources, suggestions.
Thanks.

I think you are looking for an iSCSI to SAS bridge (unless there's an external SAS port on your miSAN). Bridgeworks ESAS2800 would probably work or Rancho RSIiiSCSISAS-R. Both are only sold to OEMs so can't give a price. Ballpark figure can be got by looking at the Dell TL4000, iSCSI bridge for that costs £1320 (about $2000)

Just looked at the back of it and it's got a couple of VHDCI ports, dunno anyone that provides a parallel so serial SCSI bridge, neither of the above will work.

Call Cybernetics.  I was able to get the two VHDI ports swapped with two SAS ports.  As I understand it, some models can easily be swapped at your office while others may involve sending the unit back for a conversion (depends on age).
