I recently took over admin duties for a DL360 G7 running RHEL 6. Is there a way through ILO or the OS to tell if the SFF HD backplane kit has been installed on this server, or is the only method available to open it up?

Are you asking about the primary Cage or the optional?
The optional would require a 2nd controller or a SAS Expander board.

The server is in a remote server room which I have to request permission to get in. So, I was trying to do it remotely. I have 4 300GB disks in the system. I was just trying to determine if it already had the extra drive cage installed, or if 4 disks is my maximum without buying some more hardware. I do have hpacucli installed. Just checked that. I don't see an expander card listed. Checking a DL380 that I know has an expander card... it shows near the bottom of the output:
Enclosure SEP (Vendor ID HP, MOdel HP SAS EXP Card) 248
So, I would assume that if the DL360 had the expansion cage, it would also show something similar. OK. Looks like I'm stuck at 4 drives unless we buy the expansion hardware.
