I am looking at trying to upgrade my r740 from an 8x 2.5" backplane to something that can take more drives. I am unable to find the suitable backplane using Dell - has anyone done this before ?
R740 have three type of chassis, 8X3.5, 8X2.5 and 16X2.5. You can refer below link for details. But converting one chassis to another chassis is something which is supported.
thanks - I have 8x2.5 and I want to convert to 16x2.5 - do you know where I am able to get a 16x2.5 backplane ?
