D260 has May 31, 2003 as the minimum End of Support life.

D380 Has not been announced.

Hope that helps.

Re: D260/D380 hardware end of support date ?

Hi,

Our HP sales rep said last week that there is still no end-of-support date determined for the D260 yet. He also mentioned the usual end-of-support date for a server would be 5 years after the server was obsolete, therefore for the case of D260 the end-of-support date should be around 2005 presuming the server was obsolete in year 2000.

Is the information given by our sales rep correct?

No,

Yes that's true, usually it's 5 years after becoming obsolete.

But your sales representative is wrong when saying that there is no end-of-support date determined for the D260. Mr. Martin's answer is correct; he's an HP guy, he should know.

HTH,

Philip,
The 5-year rule fits, because the D260 went obsolete on 1 February 1998.
I double checked the 31 May 2003, this is the end of support date for the D260
There is no good troubleshooting with bad data

I'm using this reply to ask a general question about the location, on HP site or anywhere else, of the official HP "EOL" chart. Does that, or something like it, exist? (With support dates, sunset dates, etc).

Thanks!
