Help Specifying P2000 G3 10GbE iSCSI MSA



I'm trying to spec P2000 G3 10GbE iSCSI MSA (AW597B) but I'm a bit confused with the 10GbE iSCSI on the controllers.


I'm looking to connect it to the core switch which is going to be a HP 5406zl Switch (J9866A) with the following modules.

HP 8-port 10GbE SFP+ v2 zl Module (J9538A)
HP 8-port 10GBASE-T v2 zl Module (J9546A)


So it will actually have 2x  8-port 10GbE SFP and 2x  8-port 10GBASE-T.


Do I need a special SFP+ cable to go from the controllers to the 8-port 10GbE SFP+ v2 zl module on the switch?


I was then planning on going from the 8-port 10GBASE-T v2 zl module to the servers (709943-421) which have a two port 10Gb 533FLR-T FlexFabric adapter. I was also going to put in a 10Gb 2-port 530T Adapter (656596-B21) into each server.


So I was going to split the iSCSI and DATA through both the onboard NICs and the PCIe for redundancy.


Any advice would be greatly recieved.
