ML370G4 + Hotplug DAT72


ML370G4 + Hotplug DAT72

Hi there,

I was on a customer site the other day and we ordered a ML370G4 with 5 disks and a Hotplug DAT72.
The DAT72 is actually 1 and 1/2 times the width of a normal hotswap disk slot, but the Sales Builder Tool actually allows this configuration - even though it doesn't fit in the slot.
You have to purchase the extra disk cage to go below the CD ROM.

Just to give you all the heads up if you haven't come across this,

Or Perhaps you guys have a solution? Without the use of a saw pref!

Re: ML370G4 + Hotplug DAT72

Hi Malcolm,

I had the same question in a DL380. One of the slots had a way to extend room to fit 1,5'' extracting part of the front panel.

In ML370 case it seems you need to use 2 slots to accomodate it:

Device Quantity Position
HP StorageWorks
Tape Drvs, Hot Plug
DAT 72 Hot Plug 1 0-7

There are 2 drive bays types, 6 and 8 slots.

There is also an extension for 2 aditional scsi bays under CDROM:
ML3xx Two Bay Hot Plug Ultra320 SCSI Drive Cage 244059-B21
NOTE: The drive cage option kit (PN 244059-B21) has one 1" drive bay and one 1.6" drive bay, installed in two available removable media bays.

God bless pessimists, they did the backup!
