Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

The Proliant ML110 G5 does not come with any storage controller software nor is anything posted on the server support web page. I tried the one for the G4 but it doesn't recognize the SATA RAID controller. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

hi

you mean this one does not work for your SATA Controller?

HP SATA RAID Controller Manager for Windows 2000/Windows Server 2003

hi

just to be sure can you add the type of controller you have in that server?

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

It's recognized in Device Manager if that's what you mean. If not are you saying within HP Storage Controller I can add it?

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

Hi,

about the controller, in MSG there is "Intel 82801IR ICH9R". I think that storage manager must find the controller if RAID is enabled in the BIOS...the alternative is to use the intel matrix storage manager which can help :

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

The embedded SATA RAID storage controller is an Adaptec chipset, not Intel. However, I noticed the Windows RAID driver is "Microsoft's" Adaptec driver and not Adaptec. I tried installing the Adaptec driver using the driver from the G4 series and it doesn't recognize the controller. I think this is where the problem lies. I'm going to check out the CD that came with the server to see if its on there.

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

The device will ID as "Intel 82801IR ICH9R", and yes it does have Adaptec chipset also.

The controller in the G5 has a different chipset so the driver for the G4 will not work.

I don't know why, but there has been some issues getting the drivers posted to the support web.

Do you need just the drivers, or do you need the drivers and HP Storage Manager? Also what OS do you need them for?

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

I'm showing Adaptec Serial HostATA RAID in Device Manager. The driver is aarahci.sys with version 1.4.17010. The OS is Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 and has all the lastest service packs and updates.

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

I confirmed the driver I have installed is from the installation CD that came with the ML110 G5. Since the chipset is different than the G4, my speculation is the HP Storage Controller software simply does not support the G5 RAID cotroller and HP needs to update so it does. This is likley why HP does not have the software posted on their web site nor on the installation CD.

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

The drivers are on the driver page for each server listed. I'm not sure where storage manager and hrconf ended up. I've asked for the links to those

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

Windows Server 2003 with SP2 does not need a driver. I expect that if the driver can be found on the SP1 CD then Windows Server 2003 with SP1 aka Windows Server 2003 R2 won't require a driver either.

The reason I am here is because the Windows 2003 driver does not work for Windows 2008 (install finds the RAID array but when the server boots it blue screens). Can anyone help?

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

hi Duncan

I'm kinda having same issue

ml110 G5 - W2008 server recognizes driver SATA
installation completes

but when server is trying to load windows reboots and in safe mode reboots too.

I'm going to try install W2008 with no RAID enabled, just in one HDD, after that install driver manually, reboot server, enable RAID and configured RAID to check what happens

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

We tried installing Windows 2008 on a single disk and then enabling RAID after - no dice I'm afraid.

What we really need from HP is a driver for Windows 2008 as this is holding up some deployments for us (testing Hypervisor functionality in 2008).

It doesn't look like drivers for Windows 2008 have been released yet

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

Yes, it looks like they haven't be released yet. Anyone know who we can lobby at HP to get something done about it!?

Would re-engineering these Linux drivers to work in Windows be:

a) foolhardy?
b) worth spending the time on?

SATA RAID drivers applicable to this generation of the controller for other Linux distributions can be found using the search function on the Business Support Center page. Search for aarahci

Re: Proliant ML110 G5 Storage Controller Software

Ju, since the Linux drivers are binary only and do not include source code re-engineering them wouldn't be an easy task. Call Tech Support, they may know when the drivers will be released
