Old Compaq ML370 - original series

I wanted to know if a Smart Array 6404 controller will work and function in this server. I am going to attach an fully populated HP MSA30 expansion unit on this just for testing purposes to simulate a customer install. It's a single PIII server-866Mhz and 1.25 GB Ram. If this server is too old, then I need to know, so I can see about getting an newer Proliant ML series in place to do the testing.

Hi Brian Howard,

I would recommend you to use a newer Proliant ML server. Smart Array 6404 is not recommened for the G1 and G2 servers. And the server you are referring is G1 server.

Please check the SERVER COMPATIBILITY list:

Thank you all for the information. It definitely answers my questions about the older G1 ML370 and it's compatibility status for this controller.
