Reading the D2600/D2700 User guide, there's a section called "Cabling examples", but none of the examples match what we intend to do.
I just want to make sure that it makes sense, before we do it.
So here's the plan:
We have 1xP822 in a Gen8 rack server and 2xD2700 enclosures. We have 24 drives in each D2700. Both D2700 is configured with the exact same disk layout. We create one RAID10 array on top of the D2700 enclosures (meaning one side of the mirror is on each D2700 enclosure - the HP ACU/SSM automatically makes sure of this).
We then connect the P822 controller with 4 cables in total to the D2700 enclosures (NO cascading):
P822 Port 1E: D2700 box1, IO Module A P822 Port 2E: D2700 box2, IO Module A P822 Port 3E: D2700 box1, IO Module B P822 Port 4E: D2700 box2, IO Module B
Not thinking about the expansion options here, would this be the correct way of cabling, in terms of getting maximum performance from the drives/enclosures/p822 controller?
EDIT: So what I'm reading from the comments so far, is that this approach is not "WRONG/INCORRECT", it's just not really beneficial in any way?...
