End of life documentation for DL servers

I'm reviewing the lifespan of my client's server estate and *really* struggling to find the end of life dates for their DL servers.

Servers are:

DL580G2, DL580 (I assume G1), DL380G2, DL380G3, DL380G4, DL385G1

I know these servers have been replaced with newer models, but I need the pertinent end of life dates for the above to help the client understand the age and size of the risks they may be running - and prioritise replacement accordingly.

Regrettably, the searches I have performed on the HP website have only turned up the following page, which is meant to have EOL dates on it but does not: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/Division/90013.html

Very grateful for any information here! Searching on this forum turns up a post which implies EOL date is a few years after manufacture, but that doesn't give me the specific answer I need.

Download HP Product Bulletin

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/ProductBulletin.html#intro

There you can find data sheets of all Proliant servers.

It also tells you when a Generation was retired:

Example:
Compaq DL380 Generation 2 was retired on thursday 16th, 2003.


Good Luck
