There is no JBOD mode on HP Smart Array RAID controllers. You can make each drive a single drive RAID0, but that is not AHCI and Stablebit may/will not pickup SMART data from them. The M1015 from IBM or its LSI version make great JBOD cards. You could try 'H' series HP HBA's as well. They support JBOD.

is there anyway to do a scsi passthrough to get the smart values?

 

bummer may need to find someone willing to swap a H for  P 222... i assume iLO will pick it up ?

 

would this work? would be amazing....

I do not think the iLo in the Gen8 MS will talk to a H series card.

That card is full height and PCI-X.

A dual port HBA like this should talk to the JBOD you have linked:

ah thanks :) so PCI - 2 is fast enough ? and it is only 8 ports?

 

or i could go with http://www.ebay.com....=item4196a4c423

 

thanks schoon :)

this is what im trying to figure out. will need external ports. how do these work? its a tad confusing

How does what work? You need to be more specific.

 

The card I listed has the same SFF-8088 external socket as the P222 card you already have.

 

A SATA port multiplier hangs off a single SATA lane and splits that out into multiple SATA lanes. You're bottlenecked by that single SATA lane connecting the port multiplier to the SATA controller so the maximum you'd get from your enclosure would be 6Gbps.

 

A SAS expander however will aggregate multiple SAS lanes together to allow a much faster connection to the SAS controller. Most of them do at least 4 SAS lanes and some are capable of more.

So for example... 2 external SFF-8088s... would give 8.

 

however you can split the two SAS's connectors to get another 2-4 (on top of the original 4) on each sff-8088???
