HP Power Advisor & DL585G6 Servers - no disk options

I am trying to produce some power consumtion estimates using the HP Power Advisor utility.

However when I select the server - DL585G6 - I am unable to configure it with any disk drives.
The options for CPU, Memory work but there are no drive types configured for this server.

I have tried the online version and the downloadable version (1.32) but both have the same problem.

Any ideas?

I have noticed that too.

The hard drives across the G6 series all draw the same power as far as I can tell, no matter what server they are in. I just pulled up a 385 G6 at the same voltage/usage, recorded the power, and added the drives, and applied the difference onto the power readings for the 585 G6 with all the other features I needed.

An in-house test was able to confirm the measurements were just about perfect.

This problem is fixed in version 1.33 of the Power Advisor. The downloadable version of 1.33 was just posted on hp.com, but the Online version hasn't updated yet.

I agree with Saberus, you can also just take the drive power from another server.

Thanks - the latest version 1.33 does indeed fix the problem.
