Hello! I put P222 on my Gen8 server, but I can not use RAID6. Can someone share the key?
I have a Micreoserver gen8 with a new P222 and 4 X 4TB WD red drives forming a raid6 array. The problem is i can hear a loud noise comming from HDD like a intense reading disk operation, but when disks suposly are idle. This happen periodicaly like each 15 minutos or so. I think this can be a checking disk operation from p222 raid card but is anoying and I'm not sure. Can you provide any hint to this?
Hello everyone and I am new to this forum.
I have my Gen8 and P222 running for over a year without any problem. I setup my P222 with 3T x 4 WD RED in Raid 5 mode. Recently, I noticed there is an error message for my P222 card. Please check the photos attached.
At first I didn't pay too much attention since it was not critical information. Now it has been more than a month, is there anything I can do to fix it? The disk performance has been decreased noticeably.
Thanks in advance for any help
I bought a HP Smart Array P222 Controller for my HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8.
Operating System is ESXI 6.5.
How can I update the P222 Controller firmware using ESXI operating system?
Is this possible?
To see if it would work I moved the Drive Cage from the ML30G9 to my ML10v2 and hooked it to my P222 with 4 5TB drives. Then hooked a SAS/SATA breakout cable to the MB SAS connector and attached two SSDs to ports 1 & 2 -- Port 1 SSD has my OS (Windows 8.1) and Port 2 SSD has my HyperV VMs. Ports 3 & 4 I ran to an Icy Dock that can hold 4 2.5" HDDs in a 5.25" ODD slot. I also ran SATA cables from MB Ports 5 & 6 to the Icy Dock and in the Icy Dock I have 4 1TB 2.5" HDDs.
So far so good!
I added two 60mm fans to the ML10v2 which is now keeping the P222 temps in the 50sC (climbed up to 85+C when I first tired it without the fans- Yikes).
If this setup works after some burn-in I plan to use it to duplicate my entire main home server's data
Planning a move (to the Buckeye State) in the not to distant future which has kept me quite busy with little time to spend on the boards or just playing with Tech so it was nice to spend part of a rainy afternoon with the ML10v2 and ML30!
