DL320e v2 Performance with P222 not showing in iLO (or P120i) - ESX 5.5

Hello,

 

I've not run onboard storage using ESX for quite some time now but I have a small installation with a DL320e Gen8 v2.  I got the performance edition which includes the P222 SAS/SATA RAID Controller.  It's been commisioned this week and firmware and BIOS seems up to date.

BIOS: P80, iLO:1.32

 

I am using ESX 5.5a Vanilla.  I have installed the following bundles but I cannot get the Storage Information view to be populated when ESX is booted up.  I assume some process on ESX should interrogate the P222 and pass this to iLO:

1. hpsa-5.5.0-1287942.zip (1st installed then rebooted)

2. hp-HPUtil-esxi5.5-bundle-1.5-27.zip (installed in 2nd lot)

3. hp-esxi5.5uX-bundle-1.5-27.zip (installed in 2nd lot)

 

I am getting the NIC info populating so I think the bundle is working on that front.  In vSphere client for the server I have the full infromation on the P222 for battery, array, drives, LUN but in iLO sysinfo it says a smart array needs to be fitted.

I also have an information icon on the iLO Diagnositcs screen for the self-test - is this a problem or is just a verions call back?

iLO Self-Test Results

Self-Test Status Notes CPLD - PAL0 ProLiant DL320e Gen8 v2 System Programmable Logic Device version 0x05 

 

Everything else is working fine.  Just waiting on the iLO advanced license. I fell into the trap of installing the trial license before I set the clock :-(  though it's Christmas post delays so may be some time.

If I missed anything to help then please let me know but I think I am missing a bundle somewhere.

Thanks in advance,

Al

All my issues were solved by using the HP Version of ESX and not Vanilla.
