Upgrading an ML350 G5 proliant server with a P800 array controller

Hi,

In my company we have a very old server Proliant 350G5 running Windows server 2003 with a P800 array controller. We are now looking into upgrading the whole system, mainly because windows server 2003 is no longer supported since 2015.

I searched the web but I couldn't find a definitive answer to this question: can I keep the P800 array controller if we buy a new proliant server, maybe the ML350 G10 with windows server 2016, or do I have to also buy a new array controller?

Hi,

The p800 controller card does not support new hpe proliant servers.

Are you using the P800 card to connect the which device?

Kind Regards,

I'm using an HP Storage Works 60 Modular Smart Array, which is connected to a ML250 G5 through a P800 controller card.

Could I still use the HP Storage Works 60 with a new server? Does the server come with a smart array controller or would I have to buy one separately?

Hi,

I checked MSA60 and P800 controller card, you can't use the new server.

Kind Regards,
