Mini PCI SAS HP DL360e Gen8

I want to connect two network cards in my HP DL360e Gen8, but I would have to take out my controller card that is in one of the PCIe, I realized that there is a mini SAS input and my question is if I can connect my two disks to this input and if I need to change something in the BIOS for it to work.

Thanks

Re: Mini PCI SAS HP DL360e Gen8

The mini SAS port that you are pointing at is the embedded RAID card port and this is partly software/driver controlled which will be more of an entry level performance compared to a full fledged hardware exclusive RAID. 

You may also consider installing a PCI device into the 8X slot in the other side of the riser card where it is marked (that makes space only for 1 card extra.

You can also check with pre-sales team or reseller for options of installting multiple risers in the available slots each having more than one PCI slot.

Re: Mini PCI SAS HP DL360e Gen8

in my specific case I intend to use a raid via software. Can you tell me which driver I have to download to the built-in raid port?

Thanks
