ML30 Gen10 conversion to 4LFF hot-plug??

I've just received an ML30 Gen10, which turned out to have a plain DIY drive cage for 4 LFF drives. This is a little surprising for a 'server', particularly given that the vendor website showed images of a drive cage with 4 hot-plug LFF drives, and recommended the 861686-B21 hot-swap drive, which I got.

Before I send this back, can anyone tell me if I can just replace the drive cage for a 4LFF hot-swap version? The ML30 options page at HPE doesn't list a hot-swap drive cage/bay, and HPE's drive cage page shows nothing for the ML30.

I'm in the UK. The vendor has offered me £45 cash (55USD) or a £55 voucher, but it seems likely that a drive cage, if there is one, will be at least twice this. Comments welcome.

If you check the quickspecs for the ML30 Gen10 there are unique SKU's for LFF NHP and LFF systems. I don't think the drive cage can be swapped out in th field.

Hi Jimmy - think you're right - I've returned the system. Thanks.
