USB 2.0 PCI-Express expansion adapter

I've a Proliant ML350 (470063-458) and I need to expand usb ports and nobody, nor HP neither distributors, can tell me what adapter can I add to this server. Perhaps is not possible to attach an usb pci-express adapter... Thank you very much.

Hi fried,

If you are looking for a USB PCI card made by HP I believe you are limited to the A6869 card. It has a VGA port and 2 USB ports.

Alternatively you might want to look for a PCI USB card by another manufacturer. HP uses standard PCI technologies, there should be no compatibility issues...

good luck

I'm not sure this card is appropriate, it only lists Windows XP/Vista/7 as supported OSes and I don't think the ML350 supports these operating systems.

Here the solution. Sonnet adapters (http://www.sonnettech.com/product/computercards/index.html) will works. That have said me Sonnet support. I will buy Allegro USB 2.0 PCIe and will test it. I will say you if it really works.

Thank you very much
