Thanks very much for the informative post.
The more I look at all of this, the more I realize the ML310e Gen8 v2 was the server I should have gotten, not the ML10 v2. The ML10 series doesn't support Intelligent Provisioning, which I did not know. The ML310e has the drive cage included. The ML310e lists my HP SmartArray P222 controller as a supported option, if I recall correctly. I get more USB ports and a dedicated iLO port.
Before I get too far in this, I'm going to see if I can RMA my ML10 v2. It is equal or lesser cost to get all of these options in the ML310e Gen8 v2. I might even wish to look at the ML30.
