DL160 G6 - What hardware RAID card I should get?

Hello all,

 

I have bought a DL160 G6 server (Product number: 490427R-001 ) and it does not come with a hardware RAID card. I am trying to set up a VMWare Esxi server and as such I would need a hardware RAID card. I am just wondering if there is any card that would fit into the chassis? Would a P200i fits? How about a P400? Also, would there be any non-HP RAID card that will do the magic too? I have 4 SATA 160GB hard drives already plugged in.

 

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

Official HP Optional array controllers for this server are as follows...

Smart Array P212, P410, P411 or P812,


Alternatively it should come with a Smart Array B110i already installed.
If you enter the BIOS and change the disks to RAID mode it will 'magically' turn the standard SAS / SATA controller into a B110i array controller enabling you to setup an array to install ESXi to...


Thanks,

Mark...
