Smart Array P212 with 1GB BBWC possible?

Can we use 534562-b21 HP 1GB Flash Backed Cache with the P212/ZM Controller. With the HP Sales Builder its no problem to configure this, but in the quickspecks there is no 1 GB Cache Module for the P212.

So, will it work or not?

Thanks...

Sorry, it is not clear for me. What is the max. BBWC or FBWC Cache module for the P212/ZM and what is the correct order number for this (ten point for technical the best posting :-))

We want to use this controller in an DL360G6 Performance Modell with a MSA60 (remove the internal P410i BBWC and use the P212 for internal an external disks)

Re: Smart Array P212 with 1GB BBWC possible?

Mark, i think 512Mb cache for this controller is not supported (as there's no partnumber of such upgrade in Product Bulletin).
So, here's maximum upgrades:
256 MB Cache Module 462968-B21
Battery Kit upgrade 462969-B21

Re: Smart Array P212 with 1GB BBWC possible?

HP Smart Array P212/256MB Controller 462834-B21

the other number above is just battery
