5 out of 5 eggs Works in a Proliant DL320 G5 server 09/23/2011

This review is from: HighPoint RocketRAID 2640x1 PCI-Express x1 Four-Port SATA and SAS RAID Controller Card

Pros:

Easy install, I really like the supplied SAS/SATA data/power cables, I wish I could find similar cables elsewhere. BIOS was good, easy to follow, easy to set up mirroring, 4 SATA/SAS ports a plus, reading the clear instructions before installing helped.

Cons:

Once up and running, I had trouble with the windows RAID management software. It does not want to install. Need to investigate further, but for now it is running.

Other Thoughts:

The Proliant DL320 G5 is hard to set up with any RAID. The onboard RAID controller was useless, it also interferes with other RAID controllers but (thankfully)not this one. I used a USB floppy drive to install the driver in BART, copy imaged from the original single drive to the array. Once the array started, I again used the USB floppy, installed the drivers and ran the CD in Windows. Perfect. Also the HP management SW sees the array as a single drive. Having the really long cables allowed me to externally run the original drive (lid on) while copying data, nice to have a solution in advance before being caught unaware.
