Does anyone know if this is possible?
Has anyone had any experience in doing this? If so, were there any problems encountered?

Re: Installing an internal LTO Ultrium tape drive in a DL380G6

I don't think it's possible, those drives tend to be deep, and the DL series is tight on space up front, just enough room that the cables connected to the hard drive backplane don't get kinked up too much. If you want the room for an internal tape drive, you might be better off with a ML/DL370G6.
