Proliant DL385 G5p and smart array controller P222

Hy, please i wanted an information:

 

I have a Proliant DL 385 G5p and i have seen in hp website, controller P222 may be installed in Proliant GEN 8 and not in generation G5/G6 ETC...

 

Why, If I have installed in DL 385 G5p with Windows server 2008 the controller works correctly??

Works "correctly" is different than tested and supported.

Where is the URL you checked?

Yes works correctly. I the link driver and software, server,dl385g5p, there is not driver and software for P222 but only P212, P410i etc... And in the link product, smart array conroller P222/256, hardware compatible list, there is only server of GEN 8. Tomorrow i write to you the link. Thanks.

Hy Dennis this is the link of comapatibility controller P222: http://h30094.www3.hp.com/product/sku/10389147

 

And this is the link of DL385 G5p where there is not driver/firmware for P222:

Hi,

 

The P222 isnt a supported product for the G5p but this does not mean that it wont work in your server, it just means HP support services will not offer you end user support for this combination.

 

I'm using a P420 in my DL585G2 with no issues, I just cant call upon HP support if a drive incompatability arises with the combination.

 

The only recourse for support is to the website and these forums both of which you aleady appear to use properly.

 

Happy comuting.

 

Regards

 

Mark

>this is the link of compatibility controller P222

 

Then as Mark and I have said, it isn't officially supported.
