ML350p Gen8 - How many LFF hot plug bays can I install?

I've got a ML350p Gen8 with an LFF cage.  I believe it's:

HP 5U 6 Large Form Factor (LFF) Hot Plug Drive Cage Kit 659485-B21

Can I purchase multiples of this, install P420/P430s and run them?  Main question is if they will mount in the blank spots above and below the optical drive.

Thanks!

Hi,

Refer to the QuickSpecs, https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/getdocument.aspx?docname=c04128239
NOTE: Additional Hot Plug Drive Cages require a separate Smart Array controller for each drive cage. HP recommends the HP Smart Array P420/1GB FBWC 6Gb 2-ports Int SAS Controller (P/N 631670-B21).
NOTE: Expander HDD Cage Kit allows up to 18 LFF / 24 SFF HDDs managed under one single controller. The controller must have a minimum of 512MB FBWC module installed.

Refer to Maintenance and Service Guide, Page 83,84, https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c03251598
