How many harddisks...

Are there any free internal SATA connectors in the Gen 8 to which one can connect a harddisk? Or do I need a separate controller for that? If so, which one?

I probably would need some bracket to mount it physically. Are there any available which I can get locally in the Netherlands?

HI,

 

Maybe this threat will help you find some alternative. You can search for a similar post from schoondoggy.

 

A good recommendation could be done if we know what you want to do with your additional drives.

1. YES -- There is the ODD SATA II port available on the System Board http://homeservershow.com/attaching-a-ssd-to-the-odd-sata-port-in-my-hp-proliant-gen8-microserver.html

 

2. To go past 5 drives YES -- iLO works well with the HP 222 http://homeservershow.com/hp-p222512-fbwc-unboxinginstallation-hp-proliant-gen8-microserver.html

 

3. The Schoondoggy Drive Mount enables us to mount more drives in the G8 MS http://homeservershow.com/sdm-r2-review-introduction-hp-proliant-gen8-microserver.html -- be sure to check out ALL the pages of the review and follow up on all the links -- Check out the Schoondoggy Store http://homeservershow.com/hp-microserver-gen8-drive-bracket.html
