I have two HP DL380 G7 with internal controller dying, I would like to replace with PCIE

Hello,

I ask again a question about controller replacement.

I need to replace controller of two hp DL380 G7.

I can put inside another p410i (refurbished) but I would like to know if I can put a newer controller inside that:

- let me keep existing arrays

- can be connected to existing drive cables

- is compatible (I know if you put not compatible cards fans go crazy)

Thanks again for any hint!

Mario

The P410i is part of the systemboard, so you cannot get it off. But you can install another supported disk controller card like the P410. Question is why you want to do this?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Actually I would like to use a newer and more powerful controller like P440.

I agree with  you that replacing a P410i with  P410 is not useful.

Anyway I now think I am running to fast: in my server if I do a stress test running a disk benchmark for several hours I lose disks (they go out and I must manually rescan controller to have them in again). I supposed that it is a controller problem but I forgot that it can also be a backplane problem.
