Hi,

 

Neither the HP D2220sb Storage Blade QuickSpecs mention support for HP ProLiant BL460c Gen9 Server nor  HP ProLiant BL460c Gen9 Server's QuickSpecs mention support for the storage blade. This indicates that they have not been offically test together as of date.

 

The HP D2220sb Storage Blade supports the following Gen8 Blade servers though:

 

  • BL460c Gen8
  • BL465c Gen8
  • BL660c Gen8
  • WS460c Gen8

Hi,

 

Going through the server's and the storage blade's QuickSpecs, I do not find them to be a supported configuration.

The D2220sb will be supported on March 30 with the annoucement of a new array controler that we need to reside in the parrent server blade.  Existing D2220sb storage blades in the field can have their Firmware flashed in order to add support for Gen9 server blades that include the new array controler.

 

hope this helps.

Hi Supporter,

 

     Could be used of D2220sb for BL460c Gen7? Have anyone to try that? Is it workable or not?

 

Thanks.



Re: D2220sb can be use with BL460c Gen9 ?

 

Hi,

 

The HP D2200sb Storage Blade is supported with HP ProLiant BL460c G7 Server Blade. For confirmation refer to section "Additional Options > HP Storage Blades" in the server Blade's QuickSpecs.

 

Hope this helps!!

Re: D2220sb can be use with BL460c Gen9 ?

Hi guys,

 

Its the 31st March today, I've had a good search of the BL460c Gen9 support advisories and knowledgebase and didn't see any announcement about how to get the Gen9 to support the D2220sb . Is this forthcoming or should I seriously start thinking about trading my Gen9s for Gen8s? I've got a load of G1/SB40c that are W2K3 and getting cranky with age so I'm under a lot of pressure from my boss to get them migrated before the OS or hardware dies.

 

Thanks!

Thank you for your information!!!

 

I was updated my BL460c Gen9 server firmware  and try to connect D2220sb,

but don't recognized D2220sb storage via Smart Array P244br controller.

 

P244br's firmware update latest version but this is not fix.

 

c7000 enclosure bay 7 = D2220sb

bay8 = BL460c Gen9

Hi,

 

Please refer to this advisory that has been released addressing this issue for further information.

Thank you for your Information.

 

but, I'm already read that Advisory and I can't fix my problem of do'nt recognize D2220sb by BL460c Gen9.

 

Step.2 of Advisory,

~~

Clear the ProLiant BL460c Gen 9 Server Blade NVRAM using Platform Configurator via ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU) and reboot.

~~

 

This mean is

RBSU -> System Default Options -> Restore System Default Settings

or

RBSU -> System Default Options -> Restore Manufacture Default Settings

 

It is correct?

 

If not and other operation is required  then please step of Clear the ProLiant BL460c Gen 9 Server Blade NVRAM.

 

 

Re: D2220sb can be use with BL460c Gen9 ?

 

Hi,

 

The setting  is:

 

RBSU -> System Default Options -> Restore Manufacture Default Settings

 

One can always settings in RBSU and save them as System Default Settings and when there are further changes made to the RBSU configuration and there are issues, the System Default Settings can be used to switch the server to the settings which were saved so.

 

Restore Manufacture Default Settings resets the settings to factory defaults. In this instance please use this option.

Thank you for your reply.

 

I was one more try bellow,

 

* Already update firmware BL460c Gen9.

2. Remove D2220sb from enlosure bay.

3. Power on BL460c Gen9 , entry to RBSU and Restore Manufacture Default Settings.

4. Reboot server only BL460c Gen9 and shutdown and power off.

5. Insert D2220sb to enclosure bay and wait LED to steady green lit.

6. Power on BL460c Gen9 server.

 

but not recognized D2220sb.

 

ummm....

 

 

Re: D2220sb can be use with BL460c Gen9 ?

 

Hi,

 

The advisory states the following:

 

Note: The HP D2220sb Storage Blade is only supported with one of the two embedded storage controllers on the HP ProLiant BL460c Gen 9 Server:

  • HP Smart Array P246br storage controller with version 2.10 firmware (or later)
  • Embedded SATA

Hope either of the above controllers are being used to connect to the HP D2220sb Storage Blade.

 

If so and the issue is still not resolved, then contact HP Support for further assistance.

 

Regards,

 

Vijayasarathy

Re: D2220sb can be use with BL460c Gen9 ?

Hi,

someone able to explain me the technical background why D2220sb is only working with P246br and not P244br? (and why it's working with B140i)

Thx

Another option is to remove p244br from your blase server so it will recognize p420 controller inside storage. Move all drives from blade to storage.
