Is there a way to find out the HDD bays capacity for a server? I played with Speccy and Belarc but I still can't figure out this one. I see the available RAM slots but I don't see anything about hard drives. How many physical drives are installed and if there are any empty bays where more HD can be attached. Maybe I'm making this too difficult...is there a way to find this info without opening the server case?

Thank you

What type of servers do you have?
On HP servers you can use system management homepage. It will tell you the number of installed HDDs, number of HDD bays,...
Other brands for sure have other tools. On custom made servers I think you can forget it.
