New DL380 - HP Part # 516653-005

I received this server in today with a optical drive in a seperate box. I opened up the server box and it is a large form factor model (which is the first problem I have with it) and now I see NO where to put in the optional DVD drive. Anyone have this model, and is it possible to add a DVD drive to?

Thanks

It should have a 481043-B21 or 481041-B21 Slim-line DVD already in it. If you're adding a second one, it will be externally attached.

See the Service and DVD installation manuals:

This particular one has 6 drive bays, horizonal, across the front but no bay for a DVD ROM. I've opened it up and no where can I find where one should be installed. I did not come with one.

The LFF version of the DL380 G6 chassis cannot take an optical drive.


This is per the quickspecs:
