Hello good afternoon! I have a question about the HP p410 controller. It turns out that right now I have a hardware RAID 4 × 6 TB, and I'm thinking of changing the disks to a larger size, specifically 10 TB. Does this controller support 10 TB disks in any RAID system? Thank you very much and greetings!

I am not sure if the P410 supports 10TB drives, but it does support array expansion. Do you have a cache module and battery installed on it? What RAID level are you running, RAID5 or RAID10?

Hello! As the controller currently has 1GB of RAM with the flash battery. And right now you are running a RAID0 of 4 × 6 TB.

So all four drives are in a single 24TB RAID0 pool?

As far as I know there is no way to do an online expansion of a RAID0 by swapping drives. You would need to create a new RAID0 array with new bigger drives and restore from a backup.

Oh no no, I want to remove the four 6 TB disks, and put four new 10 TB disks. My question was if the controller accepted 10 TB discs, I will not do any expansion, just remove and put the new discs. It was more than anything in case I bought them and then they were not compatible.

Got it!

You may need to post on some HP forums to see if anyone is using drives that big on a P410.

You could buy one 10TB and with the proper cabling connect it to the second port on the P410 to see if it works.

The truth is that I do not know anything about the HP forums. Do you know any one so you can pass me a link?

Yes, right now I have the disk of the optical bay that I do not use, and it could be a good option to try the 10 TB, but that would leave it as a last option.

      I need to update the firmware on a HP Proliant Microserver Remote Access Card installed in my N40L.
       
      Can someone please explain what I need to do to create a boot device that will update the firmware on the Remote Access Card?
       
      Thanks

      Good evening,
       
      after checking my ILo4, version2.61 on my Gen8 hp microservet, i saw an exclamation mark at cpld-pal0. It is now version 0x06.
      i have read that there is an version 0x32.
       
      anybody who has this version, and can provide me with a download link?

      Good afternoon,
       
      Newbie here, so please be gentle with me!
       
      I have an 18 month old Gen8 server bought new but now out of warranty, so limited access to HPE updates.  My Gen8 has 8Gb memory, Recently added Xeon 1220v2, standard disk controller (122i ) and 4 off 3.5” drives giving 6Tb of storage under storage spaces.  OS on SATA HDD  sitting in ODD space as recommended on here.  I was running Win10 Pro, but after upgrading processor and trying to update drivers with Intelligent Provisioning, I fell foul of the expired warranty.  I also lost my printer driver for HP laser jet and my sound drivers (usb connected sound card).
       
      To cut a long and painful journey a bit shorter, I am re-installing Win10 Pro from DVD, with licence key under IP.  My question as someone without warranty, but with a copy of the SPP download (ISO?), how do I install the various drivers needed from the SPP and do I need to update the firmware for the Xeon processor, if so how?  I read on here that the original 2014 J06 firmware does not have a thermal solution for Xeon processor and ILO shows high temps for some components.
       
      I am reasonable knowledgeable in Windows of old and have Rufus to create bootable usb sticks, but unsure how to get from SPP ISO image as downloaded (871795_001_spp-2017.04.0-SPP2017040.2017_0420.14).
       
      Any help from experienced gurus much appreciated!
       
      regards
       
      Richardracer.

      I installed a BU50N Blu-ray 4K drive in my HPE ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer.  Worked out well, I'm using PowerDVD13 -- I had to restart the "Machine" several times before it saw the ODD but "Machine" finally figured it out.
