D2700 Implementation - is it straightforward?

Hello all


I am about to add a D2700 with a HP222A SAS controller into a file server that's a DL380p gen8 (Windows 2008 R2) to increase the amount of direct storage available on the machine.


Does anyone know if there are any issues with first installing the card, updating the firmware for the card, and then connecting the storage and configuring? How much downtime should I factor in?
