- RAID 0/1/5/10 JBOD
- 4 x SATA/SAS Internal Connectors
Works in a Proliant DL320 G5 server 09/23/2011
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.
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.
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.
