So i upgraded my server and am left holding my head in my hands realizing that I have a bunch of 8tb drives that I cant use... (3.5" drives 2.5" server bays)  I found a HP StoreServ M6720 used locally and am wondering if anyone knows anything about them???   can i hook one into a DL360P ?  and can i use unraid to access each drive individually? or will I end up with just a raid box showing up as a single drive in unraid?

HELP!     im still new to all this stuff....

You will need an external SAS card to connect to the StoreServ, and chances are it won't work with your existing drives as it uses SAS instead of SATA. Depending on how your DL360P is setup, you may be able to add LFF bays, or just purchase an external JBOD array.  If the StoreServ already has drives in it, and you can purchase it with the correct card you should be able to present the drives directly to Unraid, but it will require research and tinkering.
