Re: DUAL PORT SAS VS SINGLE PORT SAS

Unfortunatly those links no longer work.

 

For now, something like this MIGHT assist those that are looking:
HP SAS Enterprise and Midline Hard Drives - Compatibility Between Single Port (SP) and Dual Port (DP...

 

or

Serverfault - Mixing dual and single port SAS disks

 

I ran into this question and just wanted to give the information if needed by someone else.
