I already have 3PAR 7200C with one M6720 connected like in cable guide. Both DP-1 from drive enclosure are connected to DP-2 on both nodes.

Now I need to add M6710. Do you think I can connect it from both DP-1 of M6710 to both DP-1 on nodes so I wil end up like on page 16 in this cable guide https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public ... =c04441597
but in my case E1 will be M6720 and E2 M6710?

I would like to avoid re-cabling it since there is no guide how to do it online.

Best regards

Yes, that's the correct way.
Can be done Online.
Add Disk license if you haven't reached 48 Drives at first.
Remember that one Cable is short and other long, as the Guide describes.
Insert Drives and power on the Shelf a while before connect.
Execute admithw, after connect.

Thanks Cali. Sadly afted cabling I stucked at:

checkhealth -svc -detail
Cabling cage2 Check connections or replace cable from (cage0, node0, DP-1) to (cage2, I/O 0, DP-1) - failed links

So i didn't admithw yet

I switched SAS cable to new one. Problem persist. Only 3 leds out of 4 on bad SAS port in enclosure are on.

In the output I see:
Link_Speed(DP1,DP2) Unknown,Unknown 6.0Gbps,Unknown

should be
Link_Speed(DP1,DP2) 6.0Gbps,Unknown 6.0Gbps,Unknown
