HP DL360e Gen8 and SAS disks

Hello HP community, i've bought an HP DL360e unknowingly that this model does not support SAS disks by default. Strangely the smart array controller B320i which is listed in the quick specs does not fit. How do i manage this server to read SAS disks?

Hi @FHMM

The B320i support SAS disks but you need a SAS license Key.

I bought the B320i Controller, one like this: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=hp+b320i&t=hf&atb=v92-5_j&iax=images&ia=images&iai=http%3A%2F%2Fi.ebayimg.com%2Fimages%2Fi%2F191593574588-0-1%2Fs-l1000.jpg

But it does not fit into the server. How do i verify which basemodel i have? (B120i or B320i)?

So if i got the B120i there's no way i can use SAS disks?

No way.  B120i just SATA.
