Proliant ML350p hotplug disk cages

Hello ,


We just ordered and received a new Proliant ML350p G8 server equiped with a Smart array P420i and a 8 sff hard disk cage

Then we ordered by mistake 3 Lff hard disks (1tb sas)


My question is : rather than ordering 3 new sff disks , is it possible to replace this sff cage for an lff  ?


I saw in the price list the following part number :

659485-B21  "HP 5U 6 Large Form Factor (LFF) Hot Plug Drive Cage Kit"


it seems to be the right part number

anyone knows if it is the right part number alone or if i need others parts to replace the original cage (cables/backpanel/ etc)  ?

Hi,Re: Proliant ML350p hotplug disk cages


The part number is correct.

For installation steps you can refer to Guided Troubleshooting for this server from the following link :
