We have an HP dl380 rack mount server and need to add further drives so the sas expander was bought and drives and cage. Am I correct in thinking you have to disconnect the existing two sas connections from controller and plug all now four connections into the expansion card and then link expansion card to the controller that was previously linking the standard first cage? 

This link look similar I believe but I think it's not on board controller think its a pic mounted from factory with cache module but until I open I cannot verify
