ML30 Gen9 Advice

Hi,

My employer has given me an ML30 Gen9 , it has 4Gb Ram, 4 Bay LFF cage with 1 x 500Gb and 2 x 1.0 Tb drives, it also has a P410 raid controller but nothing connected to it.

I have 32Gb of Pc4-2133 ram coming and a front fan as its not got one and is throwing up an error.

My question is can i connect the 2 x 1.0 Tb drives to the P410 ? and if so how ?.

I also have 4 x 500Gb drives that I could use.

It hasnt come with any form of Proliant support pack but I have been able to install the HPE raid controller manager so that it (Server 2012 R2) can see the P410.

Re: ML30 Gen9 Advice

Think i have answered my own question - The 4 bay LFF cage only comes with 1 x mini sas connector so it cannot support any form of raid.

There must be another cage that allows for raid but cannot find any part numbers.

Next issue...beginning to wonder why I bothered.

Memory arrived today 4 x 8Gb PC4-2133 ECC Unbufferred dimms. Installed them but on power up they are not recognised and the system halts.

Put 2 of the 8 Gb's in Channel 1 and the 4 Gb in Channel 2 , System boots up (only see's 4Gb though) Server 2012 loads fine and from Sys info see's 20 Gb but says only 4 Gb usable.

Absolutely no idea whats going on and so am bedinning to think that the ML30 is actually physically faulty ?

Hello,

 

SA P410 controller doesn’t support with the ML30 Gen9 server.

 

Follow the below documents for more clarifications. I would suggest you install supported hardware components in the server.

- Thanks for the reply.

So in essence as a private individual the ML30 is useless to me  - a workstation would make more sense. At least I know where I need to be aiming for now.
