Re: ML380 not listed

Hi,
I'm sure hp hasn't released any server named Proliant ML380 & DL370 that should be DL380 & ML370 servers.
The 2nd digit in the server name is used to identify whether it is a Tower Shape Proliant Server OR a Rack Mounable Server (DL=Density Line)

ML=Maximized Line= Tower= ML110, ML150, ML310, ML350, ML370, ML570 etc
DL=Density Line= Rack Mount= DL140, DL320, DL380 etc

That should clarify the scenario

Re: ML380 not listed

yes TarunJain I was thinking the same

maybe as a external storage option

like for example HP

StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 20 (335921-B21)

well just in case please ramiathp let us know

Re: ML380 not listed

hi

ml370 and dl380 Generation? G1 G2
windows 2003?

just in case if you need configure NIC teaming

first download Proliant support pack 7.9
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/27534.html

and the NCU (network configuration utility)
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/27384.html

just check if those are compatible with your server

Re: ML380 not listed

Hi Karlo,
i updated my NICs drivers and now it seems to be fine. but i've got some questions now:
before doing teaming should i plug in each network port and configured its relevant ip, gateway, mask, etc (same values for both NICs) and then do the teaming?? what's recommended and is there a doc for step by step guide.

anyhow i did the teaming and another connection appeared so now i have 3 but one apears to be disconnected and sometimes both even tho all cables are in, is this normal? even in icon tray virtual conn (teamed) is on but 2 others have red cross.
another thing after teaming is that when for testing i unplugged one of the cables i got below:

Re: ML380 not listed

hi

you first open the NCU after that you make the teaming and after assign the ip and the other ip settings to that teaming

I got something for you

HP network adapter teaming: load balancing...

and Teaming WP

Re: ML380 not listed

hi

if you have one NIC with IP and and make the teaming with that one... is that what you mean?
if so the teaming is a "new" NIC card so it does not matter

Re: ML380 not listed

hi again

someone once told me that to create NIC teaming he used a PCI NIC card also he did NIC teaming this using one embedded NIC port and another port from the PCI NIC card

if the embbeded NIC Card failed (or the PCI Card) he had this another way of fault tolerance

cool

regards ramiathp
dont forget assign some points next time

Re: ML380 not listed

no i meant i have 1 dual ported embedded NIC with only one port being used previousely which had ip, mask, gw, etc and i never used the other port so i just installed the NCU and did the teaming (using the one which had ip and were being used + the other which never had ip and was never used) but i believe it doesn't matter coz after u install NCU and do teaming everythig is done automatically and NCU takes over and controlls completely as i've seen.

and sorry to forget points assignment dude.

cheers.

Re: ML380 not listed

yes

NCU take care of the cards create this new teaming supporting up to 8 NIC ports and creating a new virtual connection...
