Proliant ML110 SATA server - harddisk installation problem

Hi guys,

i have recently purchased a Proliant ML110 Sata server; it comes with a prebuilt Maxtor 160GB Sata harddisk.

In order to take advantage of its raid capabilities, i have purchased a separate Maxtor 160GB sata drive from ebuyer in the hope of building a raid 1 array.

however, i am finding difficulties in fixing the 'new' harddisk into the hot plug drives with the 3 haddisk cages.
Do i need to purchase additional hot plug cages from HP in order to fix the maxtor harddisk into the server?

many thanks

Alan

I have already bought the 2 harddisks; does that mean my harddisk will not be useable with the ml110 sata server?

Alan,

Did you ever sort this? I was thinking about purchasing the same box as you but if it only comes with the 1 hot-swap fixing then I'm gonna have to look elsewhere. Surely it comes with the full set of 'em??

Re: Proliant ML110 SATA server - harddisk installation problem

it does only come with 1 fixing cage
i end up buying 1 * HP harddisk for 3 * the price.
It is a Maxtor harddisk with HP fixing cage.

Is a total rip off

Thanks for that. Looks like I'm gonna have to re-think my server purchase. Shame as I'd done a pretty good job of convincing myself that VFM wise the ML110 couldn't be beaten.

The fixed hard disk cage in the standard ML110 G2 is excellent for adding 4 extra 1" drives

Just a few screws to remove the whole cage

Almost as easy as hot swap !
