Specifically I want to use a SAS card (a P410) and some drives that I have spare in a ML150 Gen5 server.

If there is a cable that converts mini SAS to the Gen5 SAS cage connection can someone point me to it?

Or can I use a ML150 Gen6 cage in a ML150 Gen5 server?

I think the cage part number is 458312-B21 for the Gen5 and 487737-B21 for the Gen6 but correct me if I am wrong.

Sure: All-things-SAS - Also see this.

  • The 4-bay 3.5" disk backplane for the HP ProLiant ML150 G5 drive cage (part 451781-001) uses a single older-generation four-lane SAS SFF-8484 connector.
  • The HP Smart Array P410 controller features two four-lane SAS SFF-8087 ports.
  • You will need a SAS SFF-8484 Male to SFF-8087 Male cable.
