Hd max and hpdsa driver

Hi

I got a few HP DL20 Gen 9, One running on sd card and two running with just one ssd in them.

New for what I'm doing (VM hosts) I don't need the featues of the hpdsa driver, but without it fan3 is running at +40% all the time.

I know it's becurse the hpdsa gives ilo access to the HD max sensor.

But i'm running debian and your "lastest" recemendation on that is just to use the buildt ind ahci driver (https://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/project/ubuntu-hpdsa/) 

Following you guidelines, I have to live with the fans running at 40% when they should be running at 6% and is almost silent 

what to do ?

NOTICE! The hpdsa driver is no longer being developed past the versions indicated. Do not upgrade the Ubuntu kernel or try to use this binary driver with Xenial. If you have a B-series Smart Array, it is advised to use the Linux md (software raid) driver, or upgrade to an H or P series hardware-based host bus adapter.

Hello,

I found this article related to the fan noise issue on DL20 Gen9 server : https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-a00003578en_us, you can give it a try and check if that fixes the issue.

Hi

Yes, I have seen that page and its saying the same thing as me. ILO need the HD max sensor, the hd-max is an HDD/SSD sensor and is only visible for ILO when you run in “raid” mode ( which you tell us not to do on Debian/Ubuntu ) and you install the hpdsa driver

I’m using the Sd card slot to boot one of my servers so it doesn’t even have an disk in it, it’s really stupid I need an drive in it doing nothing but using power and I have to deal with an outdated driver
