DL380 G4 + SA 53xx?

Hello,

Is it true that Smart Array 53xx are not compatible with DL380 G4?

As in a previous post

http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?admit=109447626+1216838317293+28353475&threadId=999768

I get the following error "Unsupported pci card in slot 2 detected" at POST checkup when I try to put a 5302 card in a DL380 G4

Is there a workaround to avoid thid BIOS deny?

Thanks a lot

Philippe

Hi,

yes, it is true according specifications:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12028_div/12028_div.HTML#Options

check under storage controllers.

There is no workaround, because in order to function the server BIOS and the controler firmware must cooperate, which is not the case...
