Hi, the MSL2024 can have 1 or 2 Ultrium drives, depending on whether the drive is full-height or half-height.
Ultrium 460, Ultrium 960, and Ultrium 1840 are full-height, so only one will fit.
Ultrium 448, Ultrium 920, and Ultrium 1760 are half-height.

Hello,

up to two half-height drives are supported. You can connect them with SAS or U320 scsi. FC is only available for full-height drives, so only one drive is supported.

Best regards,
