HPE ProLiant Gen10 DL Servers Storage Cabling Guidelines

When installing cables, observe the following:

  • All ports are labeled:
    • System board ports
    • Controller ports
    • 12G SAS Expander ports
  • Most data cables have labels near each connector with destination port information.
  • Some data cables are pre-bent. Do not unbend or manipulate the cables.
  • Before connecting a cable to a port, lay the cable in place to verify the length of the cable.
  • When routing cables from the front to the rear of the server, use the cable channels on either side of the chassis.
