HSC expansion slot - Female holder

Hello,

One one of the K380 box, we are planning to install a new HBA card on one of the HSC expansion slots.

Unfortunately when we tried to install the HBA card, there is no female holder/plug available.

My question here is, do we get this female holder/plug along with the purchase of the HBA card (A6685A)? Or do we have to buy it seperately?

Thanks,
Nikee

Hi Nikee,

A6685A
1000Base-T HSC Fiber-Channel network interface adapter

Are you looking for the expansion boards ?


A3695A
4 slot HP-HSC expansion board - Provides four HSC slots

A3696A
2 slot HP-HSC expansion board - Provides two HSC slots


Hope this helps,

Hello Robert,

How can I find out what HP-HSC expansion board do we have in the system?

Re: HSC expansion slot - Female holder

The K380 can only support 3 HSC cards so more than likely you have a 2 slot expansion.

A3696A 2 slot = actual part number on the expansion board A3641-60013
A3695A 4 slot = actual part number on the expansion board A3641-60005

Hello Jesse,

Are these boards (4 slot & 2 slot) are transparent to the HP srever models K580 and K380?

Thanks & regards,

Re: HSC expansion slot - Female holder

I'm not sure what you mean by "transparent" but the K380 takes only the A3696A and the K580 takes the A3696A, A3695A, and or A3694A

The A3694A is an additional HSC expansion for I/O 5-9 slots
