Convert HPE ML110 Gen9 SFF to LFF

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy a refurbished ML110 Gen9 server from a reputable seller here in the UK, however it is SFF hotplug - unfortunately there are no LFF chassis in stock and they are not sure when they will be stocking more. How hard would it be to change over to a LFF cage? Can I just swap the cages out or is the wiring/physical chassis different?

 

I don't really want to go down the SFF route as I am upgrading from a Gen8 microserver and all of my storage drives are LFF.

 

Any help is most welcome.

 

Thanks,

Mark.
