HDD SAS HP Proliant DL380 G7

Hello all

I have a proliant dl380 g7 hp with SFF configuration.
the hard drives are full I was brought back two 300GB 15k hard drive but they are compatible with the LFF configuration.
How could I use these disks on my current configuration?


Thank you

AFAIK, your only real option is to get SFF drives. Sometimes, the smaller and faster LFF drives are actually SFF drives in a larger carrier. If this is the case then you can by SFF carriers and swap them. If not, you really should be looking at purchasing drives compatible with the system. Sometimes you can swap/add drive bays but I don't think that's an option for you and it's probably going to cost you as much time and frustration as just getting compatible drives.

Thank you for your answer. it's a shame not to be able to use or adapt them. I thought it might be possible to connect them even internally, or buy a usb / sas adapter
