DL360pG8 with P431 and MSA 1050 SAS

Hi,

my receller said to me to buy a P431 controller to connect my DL360P G8 with my MSA 1050 SAS. On the  MSA 1050 i see the link is ok with controller, the connector led is on, the initiator is mapped with volumes. Everything looks ok  but the P431 doesn't see anything.

I use VMWare 6.7 and modify with ssacli the P431 to enable HBA mode but no more success.

My MSA 1050 works fine with another server DL360 G9 with H241 controller

An idea ? Thank's

1st of all VmWare 6.7 not yet tested with MSA1050 so this is not a supported environment.

Next thing I have checked HPE MSA1050 Compatibility with VmWare 6.5 and I don't see P431 supported but H241 supported. Please find the link to get details,

My DL360 Gen9 running vmware 6.7 and connected on MSA 1050 works fine.

I think my resseler is in fault giving me a P431 to connect my DL360 Gen8

Re: DL360pG8 with P431 and MSA 1050 SAS

Yes as I have mentioned earlier your DL360 Gen9 using H241 HBA which is actually supported with MSA 1050 so this is working fine.

But in case of DL260 Gen8 you are using P431 which is actually not supported with MSA 1050 as per the HPE SPOCK so this could be the reason that this is not working

I would suggest to refer the HPE SPOCK link which I have given and identify any supported HBA and use it in DL360 Gen8 server

 

Hope this helps!
