Hello All,

Thanks, I don't think these are SATA complaint. Just SCSI?

Na, don't think DL360g4 has hardware raid for SATA --- unlike the DL320s model

Re: RAID Card for DL360 G4? SATA???

Hi everybody,

We buy a DL360 G4 with a "HP 8 INT Port SAS/SATA HBA" in order to use RAID 1 with Linux RHEL3 or 4 but I encounter a problem in installation... I'm enable to "find" a driver disk that works during the installation.

There is a driver CD with the RAID card with some mptlinux...dd.gz files for i686, em64t or x86_64 CPU, but after a "dd if=file of=/dev/fd0", I put the floppy disk and ask the installation program to load the driver disk and the only answer I have is that no device is appropriate to driver disk... I try with a RHEL3 and a RHEL4 and with every files on the CD.

Is anyone has a solution ?

I'm sorry if my english is poor, it's because I'm a french man.

Regards.

No! The P600 will not enable the RAID in the DL360 g4p.

Dug around and found that you need HP 8-port SAS HBA (347786-B21) and HP SAS/SATA Cable Kit (398307-B21).

And my supplier has been telling me lies!!!!

Search "Storage Controller" at http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12166_na/12166_na.html

Thanks,

Gus

ps: please assign points accordingly

Just noticed Michael's post has already suggested the Embedded card! Just add a cable and you'll be sorted.
