Re: HP Proliant DL380P G8 Raid 5

Do you have a cache module installed on the RAID controller?

RAID 5 requires at least 256MB Cache installed on the RAID controller. Some lower end models of the DL380p come with "zero memory" or "ZM" controllers that only support RAID 0, 1, 10 out of the box without being upgraded with a cache module.

Please note that a minimum of 512MB cache is required to enable RAID 5, 5+0 support. Either of the following options may be installed to enable RAID 5, 5+0 support:

 

HP 1GB P-series Smart Array Flash Backed Write Cache                                631679-B21

HP 2GB P-series Smart Array Flash Backed Write Cache                                631681-B21

HP 512MB P-series Smart Array Flash Backed Write Cache                         661069-B21

Re: HP Proliant DL380P G8 Raid 5

Hi.

 

Just following on from this, I have to configure almost the same setup, using an ML350p Gen8 and a 1Gb P-Series FBWC, but I cannot find the setup instructions.

 

A piece of paper that came with the FBWC said to search on the HP website, but the page is blank. I don't want to dive into setting up this expensive piece of hardware blind - I need some doco!

 

Help appreciated.

Re: HP Proliant DL380P G8 Raid 5

The cache module enables the array controller to configure various RAID arrays. For assistance on creating RAID arrays, you may refer to Configuring Arrays on HP Smart Array Controllers Reference Guide. Click here for the guide.
