HP ProLiant DL180 G6 w/ Windows Server 2003 Device Manager Lists Unkown Devices

Hi All,

I have 3 of these servers (mentioned above) and on all 3 of them right out of the box they list 2 unknown devices in device manager. Does anyone have any idea what these devices are?

Also, each server has 2 pci-e riser cards installed. Do these cards need drivers?

Attached is the System Resource Report in .txt format.

Thanks in Advance,

Hi,

according to Debian on a DL360G6 these devices are:

0ca2-0ca2 : ipmi_si
0ca3-0ca3 : ipmi_si
0ca4-0ca5 : pnp 00:01

Windows calls them "Motherboard resources".
Guess you should install the IPMI system interface drivers or something.

Cheers,

Thanks Tam??s Csillag for your post. Though I think I may have missed something. I installed the "HP NULL IPMI Controller Driver for Windows Server 2003" which took care of one of the two unknown devices. Perhaps I didn't completely follow your suggestion. Let me know it there's more to it than that.

Well, I run Win2008 (64bit) on my 180G6 (and G5), but I installed this chipset driver:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3884340&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3884339&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1113#11332

Looks like it's the same for Win2003.
Other than that, i could only gather that 0ca4-0ca5 is some ACPI resource on the motherboard:
pnp 00:01: parse allocated resources
pnp 00:01: add io 0x70-0x77 flags 0x1

<<>>

pnp 00:01: add io 0xca4-0xca5 flags 0x1
pnp 00:01: add mem 0xe0000000-0xe3ffffff flags 0x1

<<>>

pnp 00:01: PNP0c02: calling quirk_system_pci_resources+0x0/0x15c
pnp 00:01: Plug and Play ACPI device, IDs PNP0c02 (active)

During my initial investigation of my problem I found this driver and installed it. It didn't resolve any of the unknown devices.

You say you have a 180 G6, can you upload the System Resource Report for it so I may look at it?

Looks like Microsoft disabled the Print feature in Win2008...
Anyways, the left desktop is the DL180 G5, the right is the DL180 G6.

And here's the driver that 0CA4 and 0CA5 uses in Win2008.

hello there!

 

here is how we solved the problem: run IE on the server and just go to www.my-config.com

 

the web site will detect all the devices on the server and list the unknown devices with links to download the drivers.

 

HP please update your driver list for this Server!!!!!
