Hardware installation of internal Ultrium 1760 tape drive in ML350p G8 server

Hi,

 

we have a new ProLiant ML350p G8 and want to install an internal Ultrium 1760 tape drive in one of the upper half height media bays. However, it seems I need an additional mounting bracket as the tape drive does not fit into it. Is there a mounting bracket available to the one that is already installed for the optical drive bay?

The only accessory I've got are the small mounting plates for the tape drive:

Or am I missing something else?

 

Thanks

Michael

Just found an additional note in the servers quick specs:

 

NOTE: Installation of tape drive requires ordering of 2nd Media Bay Cage, Part Number 661618-B21.

 

Going to order this as well now. Thanks anyway :)

HI mate

 

we have this same problem.     Did the actual extra media bay kit solve the problem.  I am a bit worried as when I google the extra Media Bay, the picture doesn't show it is capable of taking an Internal ultium 920.

 

Really would appreciate your help.

 

Tx.
