HP ProLiant SE servers

Hi all,

 

there are quite a number of 2nd hand HP ProLiant SE servers available at resellers. Given the prices and and specs I currently feel they are the most interesting offer for my needs.

 

I am slightly concerned however that the HP support side does not mentioned that product at all. Searching the forum I realize they are "custom build" (even though maybe at a very large scale) servers for specific datacentre clients.

 

Also I read that they are "similar" / "same" as DL servers.

 

Will DL drivers (Windows Server 2008) work on those?

Is there a chance to register with HP to get support? - Whereas that to me would not really mean anything more than getting access to the correct drivers for Windows Server versions.

 

Many thanks upfront for your insights!

Oliver

Thanks Jimmy!

 

The thread says must be registered on "a portal". Any info as to where to find this portal to register or is logging a call the only way to find the portal in the first place?

I'm not familiar with a portal for these systems. Calling support would be your best bet.

Re: HP ProLiant SE servers

Hi @Oliver, 

 

As Jimmy pointed out, it would be best to reach out to Support for a specific answer for DL driver compatibility.  He also pointed out on another community thread.  The HP Proliant SE326M1 was a custom-built server, there are some articles talking about SAP and Sharepoint installs. 

 

HP's Renew Program has similar servers with the price point you are working with and the specs/ workload you are considering.  Send me a message and I can get you setup with a specialist and the support you need.
