Re: Hp p420 raid controller in hba mode

Hello christian_domes,

I don't think P420 can be used in HBA mode as there is no indication of HBA mode/Mixed mode in the quickspecs of the controller (https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/getdocument.aspx?docname=c04111534#)

Hope it helps!

Hello,

you can set the P420 to hba Modus, but the Disk will not shown as Raw Disk, they are only available as ciss Device and not as raw Device. Its not recommended to use for ZFS.
