Cage for server ML350 G9 (P/N: 765820-421)

Hello.

 

I would need help with the expansion of basic server configuration ML 350 G9 from the original 8x SFF HDD to 16 SFF HDD => How to use the cage?

I looked at the accessories and offers two version:

   1.) HP ML350 Gen9 SFF Media Cage Kit(726545-B21)

         http://www8.hp.com/cz/cs/products/oas/product-detail.html?oid=7242892#!tab=features

   2.)HP ML350 Gen9 8 Small Form Factor (SFF) Hard Drive Cage Kit(778157-B21)

        http://www8.hp.com/cz/cs/products/oas/product-detail.html?oid=7139521#!tab=features

 

I received from a supplier cheaper version Media Cage Kit(726545-B21) => substitute for another

 

Please what is the difference between the two versions?  And can be used cheaper version Media Cage Kit in my situation if I want to expand on another server RAID controller (P440/4GB FBWC) and more SSD HDD ??

 

Thank You. Josef K.

Tomorrow if is not to late i will give you an answer! i will recomand you the compatible cage for your ML350G9 server (Honolulu code name :) )

Please also tell me the first 3 caracters of your serial number. it should be something like CZ3 or CZ2 if they are built on Europe or MX if they are produced in US.

 i don't know yet what configuration is your server but: if you want to use 2nd hdd cage you will need a second controller. one is on m/b by default (onboard or attached) and the second one should be on pci slot. you have that 2nd controller? or also you need it?

 

Later edit: The pictures from the website are wrong! they are for 4 LFF Hdds.

Good morning and thank you for your response.

 

If you are thinking of the serial number of the server ML350 G9 => S/N: CZ25060641

 

It seems that we understand correctly. Yes, for the first cage I use the default controller on the motherboard and is now expanding :

- We purchased an HP Smart Array P440 / 4GB to 12GB FBWC Int 1-port SAS Controller (P/N: 726821-B21, S/N: 8C3519003P) and is installed on x16 PCIe3

- We also ordered a cage (P/N: 778157-B21), but as I wrote supplier delivered Media Cage Kit(P/N: 726545-B21, S/N: 7C851009SK)

 

(yet I lack the cable between the controller and cages)

 

 
I still have the problem that I do not know what is the difference between MEDIA CAGE and DRIVE CAGE (see above). At first sight appear to be the same.

 

Thank you, Josef K.

Sorry, but that's not possible!

The first link - here I agree replies. But the second link to MEDIA CAGE kit P/N: 726545-B21 shows only cable ??!! I do not understand, but also the price .... (the price of the cable can be up to $20, but no  $50 or more)

 

Excuse me, but are you sure?

 

Please re-examine what exactly is really MEDIA CAGE Kit P/N: 726545-B21

 

Thank you, Josef K.

So....

your first cage (cage6 as is numbered by HP) is connected on MB. in order to attach the second cage i recommand you, and HP should agree with me, to buy a media kit that contains the cage with the same p/n as your first cage. also in order to use that second cage you have to buy a P440 Pci card that should be installed on slot 1 - PCIe 3.0 x8. i will post later today if not monday the exact part number of your cage!

The cage for 8sff should have this p/n: 747592-001 (verify before ordering please). it should be the same p/n as your cage. if i am right the price is somewhere around 40 euro. the cables.... i will check later the p/n for them

Hi There,

Could you please kindly let me know the PINOUT for 747592-001 (Micro-fit) as we need to make the cable for it.

Also do kindly let me know if you do sell this cable separately.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Kindest Regards

Thank you
