P410 Limitations

Recommended Posts

About to pick up one of these for by Frankenbuild, have been reading up on a few things about the number of arrays it supports with no cache and compatibility issues with non-HP systems.

 

Does anyone here actaully have one and can confirm a few things..

 

FW 3.66, seems to be the last version that isnt fussy about HP hardware, anything later than this and it tends to hang on boot.

Also, FW3.66 and earlier only supports 2Tb drives.

 

I'll be running a mix of 1, 2, 4 and 6Tb drives in a non-HP machine so looking like this card could be a no go :(

 

 

Anyone got a bit more tried and tested information?

I had one in a N54l running WHS2011. I would need to check, but think everything you have listed is accurate. Additionally, the P410 runs SAS at 6Gb/s but SATA at 3Gb/s.

Are you planning on running RAID on it? If so what 0-1-10-5? Or are you looking for JBOD? What OS?

I would get a LSI card and run it as a HBA. Shonk found a great deal on 9207 4i-4e. That card comes as an 8i as well.

Right, as an update for this, the P410 does exactly what I want it to do, in a Gen8, however since the fw was updated to 6.64 the card bootloops my Frankenbuild :(
