Hi,

These servers are too old for SSD, please check the compatibility here and refer to this document.

Thank You!

Re: HP Proliant Gen5 and 6 compatibiity with SSD

If you look at the quickspec for some of the older servers you will see a few SSD models listed. So to answer the question, yes SSD are supported in these older systems

Example:
DL380 G5 and DL380 G6 both list
SATA Hot Plug Midline (MDL) Solid State Drives
HP 60GB 3G SATA 2.5in MDL 1y Wty SSD 572071-B21
HP 120GB 3G SATA 2.5in MDL 1y Wty SSD 572073-B21

Re: HP Proliant Gen5 and 6 compatibiity with SSD

Hello.

I have 4 SSD SATA drives HP Model: XK0480GDQPH (Micron M500 2.5 SSD) in RAID 10 (using Raid controller Smart Array P822). I am testing in different combination (Proliant DL 380 G5, Prolinat DL 380 G6), VMware ESXi 5.5, 6.5 (HP Customized), different Cache R/W ratio setting and the speed results are very poor. All SATA HDD drives are faster (10K r/m). Does anyone have some information about special settings of RAID controller? I tried to enable HPE SmartPath but no luck, speed result are still poor.
