HP Proliant DL380p & HP SSD Smart Path


We're installing an DL380p with a SSD array.

We want to enable Smart Path on an existing logival volume.

The manual says that the newest driver HpCISSs3.sys-driver has to be loaded.

On my server I installed all the latest drivers/firmware but only HpCISSs2.sys is loaded !

Is Smart Path enabled ?

Where is the HpCISSs3.sys-driver for Windows Server 2012 ?

What is the SmartArray controller in this Gen8?

As far as I know, HpCISSs3.sys driver is for third generation controllers like HP Smart Array P430, P431, and P731m Controllers.


Refer to this Customer Communication.

Wow! you get all of the SAAP 2.0 features free now (except hp smartcache!)


Can anyone give us a press release on the new P430 ? 


How come it wasn't 12gbps/sas ?


Is this still PMC chipset? 


Are the heat issues gone?

Re: HP Proliant DL380p & HP SSD Smart Path



the p430 is 12gb ready.


as long as hp does not offer 12gb disks, this feature will not be enabled.


a future FW upgrade will enable this feature.


a future FW upgrade will also enable the encrypting feature.
