Anybody know what cable is need for the HP Storageworks enclosure - product# AG638A? ( diagram with the "?" )
Have tried searching google and Hp but cant seem to find anything. it looks like an ethernet point but normal ethernet cables dont fit.

Does anybody have any spare connectors from "A" to "B"  in the diagram?

Looks like Mini-SAS HD (SFF-8644) to Mini-SAS (SFF-8088) to me, but don't quote me on that.

Ethernet port for monitoring?

thanks, will quote you on that :)

I also thought it was an ethernet port for monitoring but when trying to plug in an std ethernet cable, it doesnt fit...
the port is slightly smaller than the average ethernet port.

next to the port it has written MFg?

Probably a serial diagnostics port. Unlikely to be useful to anyone who doesn't know what it's for :)

err, what did you buy - that part number is a disk shelf for an EVA SAN...

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Disk-Array/Using-EVA-AG638A-as-standalone-disk-storage/td-p/4459220

Which would make those Fibre Channel ports that would need SFPs to work. Mfg port is used for Diagnostics.

The HBA, those look like SAS connectors.

There is no way you can plug SAS into Fibre Channel.

Are you sure on that part number?

sent you a message.

Had a look now at the trademe listing and it says : M6412-A FC drive enclosure 
But on the device itself it says: HP - AG638A

Lazarui: SFP Cable prehaps?

The "B" port looks like SFP or SFP+, and "A" looks like GBIC. Both are normally used for "pluggable" fibre modules but RJ45 and direct attach ethernet are also available but probably not on the same cable. Don't think its SCSI or fibre channel. Since GBIC won't be any faster than gigabit you would need a gigabit SFP to match

Oh sorry, read your question again... You were asking about the "Mfg" port? I would say its a console port or management port. Might be for the HP "lights out" feature?
