" Can u use all HPE HDD's on an Proliant DL380 G7? "

Hello,

i just bought an used Proliant DL380 G7 from Ebay and i wonder which hpe hdds i can use. I found this site  https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=emr_na-c02755440#N10012

But the problem is i cant find any of those hard drives on any online shop. Is it possible that i use "newer" hard drives that arent listed for this server? (like this one: https://www.ebay.de/itm/HPE-450-GB-6G-10K-SAS-2-5-Smart-Carrier-G8-G9-HDD-652572-B21-653956-001/114194233179?epid=118256174&hash=item1a9681b75b:g:CrkAAOSw9rJenrrL)

Thanks

Hi,
You cannot use Gen8,G9 or G10 HDDs on G7 server. The G7 HDDs do not have smart carrier.
Use the -B21 part number of the HDDs which you require in Partsurfer.hpe.com to find the spare part number ends with -001.
Try searching for those in e-commerce websites to buy or you can contact HPE sales and check with them
