Re: C-exist LFF and SFF in server?

Do you mean internally in a DL380 G7?


The LFF drive cage is a single module that occupies both locations for SFF drive cages. So if you install a LFF drive cage, there will be no space for any SFF drive cages at all.


See the pictures at the start of the Storage section of this Quickspecs document.


However, you could build a DL380 G7 with an internal LFF drive cage and an external add-on Modular SmartArray unit with SFF drives (or vice versa) with no trouble at all.
