Raid controller options or DL80 Gen 9

Hi, 

 

I have a Gen9 DL80 (not 380) server which has the integrated onboard 140i raid controller. 

What are my options for upgrading this? I know I can get a P440 card, but I cannot get the SAS cable to connect the 8x LFF drives (779619-B21)

.

Are there other cables or controller cards that would work?

 

Thanks

Hi

Looking at the Quickspecs this card is not supported - https://www.dectrader.com/docs/set06/492171/c04447834.html

Looks like the HPE H240 FIO Smart Host Bus Adapter  might be supported depending on your model

P440 or P840 use special port in card side 68Pin, you could try buy DL360/380 cable. Or you could use H240 HBA card without cache memory to connect standard SFF8087 SAS cable to hdd cage.

Also I use LSI 9400-8i card in my ML110 G9 server, two SAS 12G port connect with to SFF8087 G9 2x HDD cage use 12g to 6g SAS cable.
