ML350 G8

What are the supported OBDR configurations for the G8 (ML350 and DL380)?  Specifically, what host bus adapter combined with internal SAS Ultrium 920 (lto-3) is supported?  Does HP have any plans to update the website with G8 support info - to include the G8 servers in every server list in Support?

Re: ML350 G8

For ML350p Gen8 , Installation of Internal tape drive requires ordering of 2nd Media Bay Cage, Part

Number 661618-B21, SC11Xe and U320e SCSI Dual Channel Controller for SCSI Tape drives and HP Smart Array P222 for SAS tape drives


For DL380p Gen8

Connection using HP Smart Array P222 Controller (631667-B21) recommended.

Hello Goutham,


thank you for your contribution, please be so kind and clarify why a 2nd Media Bay Cage

should be necessary for mounting a SCSI Tape Drive (i.e 448i, 920i)


By looking at the picture of the part, it shows a SAS Backplane which would be

of no use for a SCSI drive. See picture here:



Thanks in advance

Re: ML350 G8

To my knowledge it is a incorrect picture on HP's website, I say this because when you put the 661618-B21 in partsurfer you get 670612-001 and 667265-001 which are part of 661618-B21 kit


You would need this kit if you are installing a internal tape drive
