Most probably you're looking for an OM2 (or 3) LC-LC cable if you're MSL has FC drives.

Look your desired lenght up in the quickspecs  http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13258_div/13258_div.html#Related%20Options under optical cables

In some circumsatnce the issue is not caused by wrong Cable, but most probable by wrong set and/or definied Port Mode, and this should be configured as Loop Mode instead to ALPA Mode or vice-versa.

Check the Switch Port config with the Tape Port Config, and if required set the correct Topology.
