ML3 Tape with two tape drives - Need help with cabling

So i will be racking an ML3 tape library along with one host (PowerEdge R350) thats equipped with an HBA355e 4 port SAS card. 


I am not sure how would would the cabling look like in terms of connecting the sas cables between the host and the ML3 since each tape drive has 2 sas ports so 4 in total 


For example - SAS PORT 1 on ML3 goes to SAS 2 on the host


Can someone provide me with a diagram maybe ? that would be much appreciated

Hi @sam12111,


As for ML3, there isn't a standardized documentation for reference on cabling on ML3. The cabling is relative simple, SAS0 from host to SAS0 storage. 


Reference on HBA355e cabling to storage:
