Hi Dan,

 

Yes this is the reccomended card for U320 SCSI Array controller on the DL380G5.

 

To get this to run you will also have to purchase the following riser:-   Mixed Riser Cage Option Kit (PCI-E/PCI-X) 410570-B21 these are available for around £50 on eBay, probably less if your in the USA.

 

Hope this is of some help.

 

Regards

Re: DL380 G5 array SCSI 320 VHDCI

Hi Mark,

 

I've been asked to connect two old U160 Arrays to a DL380-G5. I speced the 273914-B21 and  relaized I need Mixed Riser Cage Option Kit (PCI-E/PCI-X) 410570-B21. Besides the SCSI cables to connect the arrays to the 273914-B21 card are there any other cables needed?

 

Would you know if there are Windows 2012 drivers for the 273914-B21 available as well?

I found Windows Server 2012 will install working drivers but is not supported by HP. HP supports 2008 R2 with drivers install packages.
