HP ML350P-T08, Drive cage questions

Hello,

 

whe have some ML350P T08 SFF servers. I have a few questions about the drive cage's in these servers. I have noticed that I can expand these servers with 2 drive cage's. At least there is room for 2 more...

 

1) How to connect another drive cage? Simple connect port b of cage 1 to port a of cage 2?

2) Do I need an extra RAID controller if I want to use another drive cage?

3) What partnumbers for SFF and LFF expansion cage's?

4) Is there another power connector for the extra drive cage's? I noticed that the original powerconnector is larger than some other 'possible' connectors.

5) Is it possible to 'mix' drive cage's? So it is possible to use 6x LFF 15K with LFF drives for smart cache?

 

Can you help me?

 

With regards,

 

Henk

Hi,

 

Refer to the ML350p Gen8 QuickSpecs.

 

1) How to connect another drive cage? Simple connect port b of cage 1 to port a of cage 2?

2) Do I need an extra RAID controller if I want to use another drive cage?

Additional Hot Plug Drive Cages require a separate Smart Array controller for each drive cage.

 

3) What partnumbers for SFF and LFF expansion cage's?

Refer to QuickSpecs link above.

 

4) Is there another power connector for the extra drive cage's? I noticed that the original powerconnector is larger than some other 'possible' connectors.

Refer to User Guide page#89 onwards

 

5) Is it possible to 'mix' drive cage's? So it is possible to use 6x LFF 15K with LFF drives for smart cache?

Mixing of SFF and LFF drive cages is not allowed.
