P2000 MSA G3 SAS & Proliant Gen9 Server

I am trying to see if I can connect a (DL380) Gen9 to a P2000 MSA G3 SAS.

 

Product Bulletin/Quickspecs doesnt really say.

 

This HBA: HP Smart Array P441 (726825-B21) is designed to connect disk storage/tapes, but doesn't call out the P2000.

 

Does anyone know?

 

Thanks

My disti came back with this HBA

 

HP H241 Smart HBA 726911-B21 

 

Which seems compatible (though not in product bulletin for DL380 Gen9)

 

However,  I still can't be sure of compatiblity with P2000 G3 SAS -  and alos I dont know how to work out what SAS cable to use...

P2000 and MSA 2040 SAS qualifications on Gen 9 are underway.  Keep track of progress on Single Point of Connectivity Knowledge (SPOCK) over next few months.

MSA P2000 G3 SAS and MSA 2040 both support ProLiant Gen9 ML and DL servers. The P2000 G3 only works with the H241 HBA and connection speeds of 6Gb/s. The MSA 2040 SAS supports both the Host Bus Adapter H241 and Smart Array P441/4GB.  Hope that helps!

Hello,

 

Unfortunately a support engineer states that the H241 HBA is not supported with MSA2040 SAS storage and ESX5.5.

 

This is because we have an issue with 3 ESX5.5i Gen9 hosts, fully up-2-date (H241 firmware for now 1.34 but as of tomorrow on 2.14) when I reboot one of the controllers the path keeps dead until I reboot the ESXi host nomatter how many 'rescan adapter' tries.

 

The H241was valid before:

http://h20272.www2.hp.com/Content/ConfigurationSetDetailView.aspx?Id=71759

 

But the current URL is this:

http://h20272.www2.hp.com/Content/ConfigurationSetDetailView.aspx?Id=72849

 

Which no longer states the H241 HBA :( and that's HP's point of view as for now! (issue is already open for 2 months and encounting and the ESXi + MSA2040 is not in production as for this problem).

 

So, this is a costly 'mistake' for now removing the HBA241 and ESX5.5 from the list! thank you HP.
