Sorry, ML370 G2 only supports SCSI disks. Check the server Quickspecs: http://h18002.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/10901_div/10901_div.HTML

SATA and SAS disks were added on the ML370 G4.

Re: ml370 G2 exchange HD from SCSI to SATA

Well, maybe you can try ML370 G4 SAS cage, but I cannot tell if it will fit.

383887-B21 - ML370 G4 SAS (Serial Attached SCSI/ATA) drive cage option

Another problem is that there are no SAS/SATA controllers supported on this server.

Hi,

this is an SFF Cage, can you tell me the Parts number for the LFF Cage please?

Re: ml370 G2 exchange HD from SCSI to SATA

Please understand that what you're trying to do is not possible. The ML370 G2 does not support SATA disks, the design was finished before enterprise class SATA disk were available. Maybe you can cut and paste parts from other models, but there's no way to predict what will work and for how long.
