ML350e G8 LFF drive cage problem

Hi, I have a performance model ML350 with 6LFF drives & wish to install a 2nd drive cage (p/n 659485-b21) but have nowhere on the system board to plug the (included) 8pin pow connector


Please help, I'm stumped.


Re: ML350e G8 LFF drive cage problem



The part in question is 659485-B21 HP 5U 6 Large Form Factor (LFF) Hot Plug Drive Cage Kit.


Refer to the HP ProLiant ML350e Generation 8 (Gen8) QuickSpec.

HP ML350e Gen8 Large Form Factor (LFF) 5/6 Hard Drive Cable Kit
NOTE: This cable is required for upgrade from 4 LFF hot plug models to 6 LFF hot plug models. A SAS controller needs to be purchased as well.


It seems a cable kit and additional SAS controller is required to connect the drive cage.


Also see this link.


Thank You!

Re: ML350e G8 LFF drive cage problem

Thankyou, but that isn't the answer I'm afraid.


The correct solution is part number: 664046-B21, redundant power supply enablement kit. With this there is facility to plug my 2nd drive cage in.
