HP DL385 and SA6400 card

Hey guys, 


I have a DL385 G1, it comes with an imbedded 6i controller, I have recently added a pci-x 133 SA6400 RAID Controller in a free PCI slot, the problem is the server does not see the newly installed card, in the Bios the PCI devices does not show the new RAID controller that I have just installed.


any Thoughts?




Re: HP DL385 and SA6400 card



SA6400 is very much supported on dl385 server.


You could try few steps here:


  1. take out the card and then update the system BIOS.
  2. Clear the NVRAM
  3. Put the Card in another Slot.
  4. Reboot the server and inspect during POST.


Please share the outcome of these steps.
