Hello

The problem is , i have two LTO drives in Robot, and only 1 Cable SAS-SAS .

The question is, ¿how conect Two LTO drives with SAS, with one cable?  , use a cable Special (need link to oficial cale) o a Swith SAS?

The conector of HBA  is a SAS not a mini SAS (in other systems use a MIni-sas to 4x sas cable)

The manual not inform about thsi solutions of more one drive LTO SAS

SAS switch MIGHT work, but if you have support with Symantec, open a case with them and ask them. There isn't any reason why it won't work, but rather confirm with them!

Thanks!

You could try a SAS Splitter cable. http://www.m2cables.us.com/4X-MiniSAS-SFF-8088-4-S...

The seller is in the US, but it gives you an idea of what you need to ask for when you contact your regular hardware supplier.
