ML370 G5 Hard Drive Cage expansion

Hi,

Currently we are using ML370 G5 with SA P400(8 x 146Gb 2.5 SAS harddisk hot plug). We would like to increase 8 more harddisk to the server now. Can somebody please advice us on the part needed for this expansion? Thanks.

Hello,

You should order the Drive Cage Kit - 401415-B21. The P400 supports up to 18 drives, so you should be good to go from here.

Hi Niel,

Thanks for the reply. Do we need to purchase another cable to connect the P400 and the Drive Cage Kit?

Hello,

I not sure, but i think you'll need to order a cable seperately.

Hi
You will need as stated above drive cage - 401415-B21.
Plus, you will need additional P400 controller, since drive cages in ML370 G5 don't use expanders and each drive have dedicated SAS lane to the controller.

405132-B21 - HP Smart Array P400/256 MB Controller
or
411064-B21 - HP Smart Array P400/512 MB BBWC Controller

Additional SAS cable are also necessary, but since I don't see them as an option for this server I believe it will be a part of drive cage kit (this drive cage is unique for ML370 G5)
