ProLiant DL380p G8 SAS drive compatibality

Hey Community,
I would like to change Storage of HP ProLiant DL380p G8 from 1TB to 4TB and would ask if anyone knows, if the HP 695510-B21 are also compatible. At the moment, we are using 653954 2,5" 1TB SAS drives and I'm a bit confused, because 695510-B21 are already 3,5" drives.
I have not so much experience with upgrading HP Server, so I only want to be sure.

Thanks for our help.


Re: ProLiant DL380p G8 SAS drive compatibality


Currently your server has 2.5 inch SFF drives.  You cannot install a 3.5inch LFF drives into the existing bay.

The server's hard drive cage, backplane has to be changed to support LFF Drives.

Refer to the QuickSpecs of this server.  Page 70 and 40 onwards.


Thank You!
