I have bought a used NetApp DS2246 and a switch: Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series PoE-48.
I am new to the data storage area and just want to set up a simple NAS.
I have watched many tutorials and tried to find the needed informtion to get it to work.
I have figured out:
1. the DS2246 uses SAS cables to connect to the switch for data transfer
2. the built in LAN ports are only for management access
3. Maybe i need another device (FAS) for it to work?
4. My switch has 2 SFP ports
Is there any way to connect my DS with my switch?
Is there a special cable from SAS to SFP?
Or what else am i missing?
Any help would be appreciated.
