Recommended Posts

I have a few threads going, but I thought I would start a new one as this is a bit of a accumulation of data:

HP MS Gen 8

E3-1220L

16GB memory

WHS 2011 installed on two WD VR 250GB (prototype bracket) RAID 1 on the B120i

Four Hitachi drives in the MS swappable bays in RAID 5 on the internal port of the HP P212

Four Samsung drives in a Sans Digital TR4X+B in RAID 5 on the external port of the HP P212

DVD drive in ODD bay

6 drives in the MS Gen 8 and 4 in the Sans Digital;

I moved to a P222 to get iLO support.

 

If you are looking at monitoring P212 and P410 controllers, here is a great post on using PRTG:

Thanks Schoon,

In fact i'm looking at having a normal fan behavior when using Debian/Proxmox.

 

From what I read, having an ILO compatible card would allow me to use AHCI without the high fan issue.

Search ebay for 'lsi low profile bracket' you may find one with the hole in it. I have taken solid lp brackets and made the hole with a drill and nibbler.
