Hi guys,

I have a customer which has just purchased the following server from us:

HP ProLiant ML330 G6
Processor(s) (1) Intel® Xeon® E5606 (2.13GHz/4-core/8MB/80W) Processor
Storage Controller Embedded HP Smart Array B110i SATA RAID Controller Hot plug advanced key
(RAID 0/1/0+1)
Internal Storage (4) LFF Hot Plug SATA HDD Bays; upgradeable to (8)
Form Factor Tower (5U)

Unfortunately they revived non-hot plug drives.

I am wondering if I send him some compatible caddy's  for the drives that he will simply be able to fit the bare drives into the caddys and slot them into the server.

Thanks in advance
