Disk controller for ML350

Hello,

 

I have a ProLiant ML350 server at home that I use as a file server. I recently bought four 4TB drives for it to upgrade storage. What I did not check is that the onboard HP Smart Array E200I do not support drives larger than one TB. (The four TB drives shows up as 1.8 TB drives). I am going to run the new drives in RAID 5.

 

I am thinking of getting something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/381513-B21-501575-001-HP-SMART-ARRAY-P800-512MB-CONTROLLER-NEW-BULK-/330750615837?hash=item4d0245e11d

As far as I can tell, this should be compatible with the server and the drives? Can anyone verify this? Or suggest a better option…

 

Motherboard: HP 4K07C5

Hard drive bay: 413986-001

New drives: WD40EFRX

Do you need any other part numbers?

 

Best regards

Knut Einar Lindstad

What OS are you using?  You should also be aware of limitations with Windows disk sizes:

To provide advice for you, it would be helpful to have the product number of the server.
