ML150 G" And 6 Port SATA RAID Card.

I am looking to purchase the following 380189-031 ML150 server from our supplier:-

http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpresentation/index.php?alert=categoryresults&product_id=HPIA048BI

The server is to use the HP 372953-B21 SATA RAID card:-

http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpresentation/index.php?alert=categoryresults&product_id=HPGA044OQ

The server is SCSI based but all the drives are to run off the 6 port SATA RAID card.

An 80GB drive will be used for the OS only, another 4 x 250GB drives will be in RAID 5 with a hot spare for data storage.

I just need confirmation that all the parts above are compatible as my worry is that I am assuming that the server will have a SCSI hot-swap backplane.
So how do the hot swap SATA drives fit in?

Is the backplane in this server able to take both SATA and SCSI drives?

Or does the 6 port SATA RAID card come with it’s own SATA hot-swap backplane?

Hope this all makes sense.

Studio,

That part is compatible with your server, or the one you want to buy.

If you buy that part, your server should come with a sata backplane instead or a scsi backplane which is part # 373012-001

Make sure with your vendor that they do not ship a scsi backplane and sata drives, they will not work.

Regards,

Jaime.
Work hard when the need comes out.

You CANNOT couple ML150 G2 SCSI version with SATA RAID controller.

You should purchase a server with hot-plug SATA backplane, e.g. 380187-031

From what I can tell, this particular server comes with a SCSI backplane.

Do you have the part number to hand for the SATA Hot-Swap backplane?

Or do HP provide a 'ready' server with a SATA backplane that has space for 5 or 6 Hot-Swap hard drive bays?

That's exactly what I wrote above.

If you want a full list of hot-plug SATA models go to:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12092_div/12092_div.HTML#Models
and look for HP-SATA description.

Re: ML150 G" And 6 Port SATA RAID Card.

ok.

I have been told that the HP 399155-031 ProLiant ML150 G3 server is what I need to purchase:-

http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpresentation/index.php?product_id=HP854562

(may need to click on the links in this post twice for products to appear properly).

However, this server only performs RAID 0 or 1.

Is the HP 372953-B21 6 port SATA RAID card ok to use with this server?

I have also seen the HP 411508-B21 HP Smart Array E200/128 BBWC Controller:-

http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpresentation/index.php?product_id=HPGA04VHM

Not sure if this supports a hot spare though.

If somebody can confirm that it does support a hot spare, I will go for this controller.

Not to worry.
HP Live Chat has confirmed that the server will work with the E200 card.
