Need help with RAID 5 - Proliant N54L

Recommended Posts

Great news. I thought it was the other way around

 

This should be ok, then:

That appears to be the right card, but you need a low profile bracket. You can buy the bracket if you can not find a card with one.

Ordered. Thanks again!

 

Just another question. Do you know if FreeNAS support it?

HPE does not support FreeNAS. Generally, when people run FreeNAS they just use AHCI and let FreeNAS take care of the RAID.

You may find something in the FreeNAS forum.

I thought you were using Ubuntu

 

I'm running Ubuntu, but I'd like to do an hardware RAID with 4 3TB Hark Disks

Dig into the FreeNAS forum to see if anyone has it working with a P410

Now I'm using Ubuntu, but I just discovered FreeNAS and looks exactly what I was looking for

Looks like it can be done. But it's highly discouraged by the FreeNAS dev team:

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?

      Hi,
       
      I’m looking for the latest Proliant SPP for Gen. 8 servers. 
       
      I’ve got a MicroServer, a DL360e and a DL380e which I’d love to update.
       
      Has anyone got the latest SPP that wouldn’t mind sharing?
       
      Thank you!

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(

      I want to rebuild my stock N54L. My preferred line of thinking is to use a PCIe X-16 card and about a 240Gb NVME M.2 SSD as my boot drive. I'm concerned about the BIOS seeing this though and being able to use it as a bootable device. Anyone tried something like this yet? I'm wanting to use all 4 drive cages for storage drives. I can't find anything in the bios regarding UEFI so I have to wonder if this is even possible or could there be a bios mod out there that would work?
       
      My alternative setup would wind up being a regular SATA SSD and replace the DVD drive with it. I'd rather the speed of the NVME PCIe setup though if its possible.
       
      Anyone?
