DL380G6 / 16 SFF HDDs and external DVD

I have DL380G6 with extra HDD case so I´m not able to use standard internal DVD drive.

Does the DL380G6 has any certfied external DVD drive with usb connection that could be used to boot up the server?

I don't know of any certified DVD products but I would expect any external USB DVD pack to work as a boot device.
Alternatively you can setup and connect to the ILO and use your local DVD as virtual media to boot from.

I've used several different USB DVD drives without any issues.

Especially i like the ultraslim ones without external power :-) (Samsung)
