ML350 G9 correct drive cage to install internal tape drive? 726545-B21?

Hi Folks,


I'm trying to install an internal tape drive in a 350 G9 SFF server. The drive is EH957B and is listed as an option in quickspecs. After speaking with HP on the phone they are also unsure as to the correct drive cage (if any) as part number 726545-B21 is listed as both a media cage and also seperately as a hard drive cage. Googling the part number shows what appears to be a hard drive cage hence the confusion.


Can anyone confirm the part required?

Page 25: Optional Media Cage Kits are required to install HP StoreEver Tape drives inside of the ML350 Gen9 Servers (726545-B21 for SFF, 726561-B21 for LFF servers).


From the above statement, what I understand is there are two types of Media Cage Kits one each for SFF and LFF models.


HP StoreEver LTO-5 Ultrium 3000 SAS Internal Tape Drive(EH957B)



HP ML350 Gen9 SFF Media Cage Kit(726545-B21)


HP ML350 Gen9 LFF Media Cage Kit(726561-B21)



Unfortunately I could find a pic or installation instructions that will help you confirm the part.

I suggest you talk to HP Sales Team or a HP Partner to get a confirmation.
