HP DL380 Gen10 P - Adding Additional Drives

Hi Everyone, wondering if I could have some advice on a DL380 server.

I currently have a DL380 Gen10 Performance in production but it only has 8 SFF drive bays.

I'm in the process of building another server which is also a DL380 Gen10 but will require 16 SFF drive bays.
Does anyone know the part numbers to do this? I was also going to use a HPE Smart Array P816i-a SR Gen10 to handle the additional drives.

Thanks for your help!

Hi

Here is some info found in the quickspec for DL380 Gen10 (link below). The p816 can handle 16 drives (2 cages).

HPE DL38X Gen10 Premium 6 SFF SAS/SATA + 2 NVMe or 8 SFF SAS/SATA Bay Kit 826690-B21
NOTE: This kit can be supported in Box 1, 2 or 3 and provides support for up to 8 SFF SAS/SATA or 6 SAS/SATA
+ 2 NVMe drives per Box.
NOTE: With NVMe drives a specific riser is required.
NOTE: When adding to Box 1 the addition of the High Performance Fan kit (867810-B21) is required

The 8 SFF can be upgraded with additional 8SFF drive box to total 16 or 24 SFF drives. For optimal upgrade Box 2 should
be populated second, with Box 1 the last to be populated for a field upgrade to 24 SFF. For CTO builds requiring 24 SFF please use the 24 SFF chassis (868704-B21). Note a field upgrade to 24 SFF will require a High Performance fan kit (867810-B21)

Thanks for the info Cederburg!

Do you know if I'll need to order any power or data cables or are they included with the drive cage?
