Additionnal USB2 controller for ML350 G3 ?

Hello,

is it possible to add an USB2 controller to a ML350 G3 server ? Additional question: the 32bit PCI slot is used by a network card, so only 64 bits slots are available.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Xavier

HP everything is possible ^^

PCI is downwards compatible, but the bus will also be slower! so proof in which busses are infected by the PCI Slots

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pci

think on the ML350G03 there should be 2 PCI-X Busses. On the Led next to the PCI-X Slot u can see the performance Mode

Off = PCI 33 MHz/PCI-X 66 MHz operating mode

On = PCI 66 MHz/PCI-X 100 MHz operating mode

Look in the Service and Maintenance Guide for further details.


BTW: hp doesn't garantuee that 3rd Party HW works

Cheers
Michael
