IBM Storewize V3700 : Is it possible to mix 2.5" SFF enclosure with 3.5" LFF enclosure

Hello experts,

The storage capacity of my IBM Storewize v3700 bay is saturated. I need to expand it asap by adding a new enclosure and disks.

My current controller and enclosures are SFF  24Bay (2.5").

I have the opportunity to get a cheap   LFF Expansion (3.5"). Is it possible to mix both size of enclosures?

Yes, You can intermix 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch expansion units behind a 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch controller unit.
