ML115 HD Compatability

Hi,

I'm hoping you can help me. I've just ordered an HP ProLiant ML115 G5 Server (470065-018) and was planning to install a pair of 1TB SATA Samsung Spinpoint HDs that I already have. I just noticed though that on the spec sheet at http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm/WF06b/15351-15351-241434-3328424-3328424-3683705-3919424.html it says the max capacity is 3TB using 4 x 750GB drives. Does this mean it will not support my 1TB drives?

Sorry if this is a silly question but this is the first time I've actually bought a server like this.

Thanks,

Stephen

Re: ML115 HD Compatability

storage capacity will depend of the storage controller and your ML has an HP Embedded 4 Port SATA Controller with Embedded RAID (0,1,5)

according to this the max capacity hdd it support is 750GB 3G SATA 7.2K

but you already have the drives, plug them in and try....

Hi Stephen,

Did the HDD's work? I too am looking at adding a pair of mirrored 1tb's.

I have the ML115 G5.

Many thanks

Re: ML115 HD Compatability

Hi Gavin,

Yup it all worked fine. Initially I put my two 1TB drives in with no problems. I then added a third 1TB drive and set it up in RAID5 and have about 1.8TB storage.

My drives are Samsung Spinpoints.

From what I remember there are 6 SATA ports and 4 of them are RAID, but when it was supplied the 250GB system drive was on one of the RAID ports. So I moved it to one of the standard ports, leaving 4 ports free for RAID. I think you have to change a couple of BIOS settings to do this, but can't remember what they were without looking.

Hope that helps!

Stephen
