HP 3Gb SAS BL Switch - Dual Pack
The SAS Switch is supported only in the HP c-Class Enclosures (C7000 & C3000)
The switch is placed into an interconnect bay in the back of the c-Class Enclosure chassis. C7000 chassis has 6 interconnect bays for switches & C3000 chassis has 3 interconnect bays for switches, however for this solution we will only support the use of 4 interconnect bays in the C7000 and 2 interconnect bays in the C3000.
(2) SAS Switches are required in the same c-Class enclosure interconnect bay row.
For the C3000 enclosure, the SAS Switch can only be placed into interconnect bays (3 and 4)
For the C7000 enclosure, the SAS Switch can only be placed into interconnect bays (3 and 4), or (5 and 6) or (7 and 8). The preferred interconnect bays are (5 and 6) then (7 and 8).
For the C3000 enclosure, using a server's mezzanine slot 1 along with enclosure interconnect bay 2 is not supported.
