ProLiant ML310e Gen8 - Upgrading Hard Disk Backplane?

Hello,

 

I have a HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 Server with Xeon E3-1220v2, and it comes with a non-hot-plug disk bays. After spending some time looking in the manuals, it seems that an upgrade to Hot Plug disks is possible with a backplane change...

 

Here's the backplane kit :

Now, the problem is, is that the only part I need to order and change?  (except for the hard disks, which would need an upgrade to the new "SmartDrives" anyway)

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: ProLiant ML310e Gen8 - Upgrading Hard Disk Backplane?

Hello everyone,

 

I have a ProLiant Gen8 ML310e v2 E3-1241v3 1P 8GB-U B120i 460W PS (768729-421) that originally came equipped with a backplain for 4 disks LFF.

 

I purchased a backpalin for SFF disks (644 841-b21). However this new backplain has two connectors for the data cable while the mainboard has only one. I hoped it was enough to connect the mini-sas A and insert the hard drives sas in the first four slots but are not recognized by the system. I also tried to connect the mini-SAS B and move the disks in slots 5 through 8, but without success.

 

Have any suggestions?

 

Thank You!
