Use Ultrium 5 Drive with ML350 Gen9


I'm trying to use an Ultrium 5 3000 (Model: EH957B) in a new ML350 Gen9 Server.

The drive has formerly been installed in a tape array and connected to the old server which had a "LSI adapter sas 3000 series 8-port with 1068" installed.

Now I want to install the drive internally, so I thought this cable would be fine: http://www8.hp.com/lamerica_nsc_carib/en/products/oas/product-detail.html?oid=3882352#!tab=compatible_hosts


I plugged the cable into one of the two ports on the mainboard. But I don’t see any device in Windows.

I’m not sure if this is really the right cable or if I’m missing something else?

Re: Use Ultrium 5 Drive with ML350 Gen9

Hi, I have tried now to install the old LSI adapter into the new server. But the server does not boot because it gets an error "x64 Exception Type 02 - NMI Detected".


So if I want to use this card I have to switch from UEFI to Legacy BIOS. Can anyone confirm this?


Thank you

Jimmy Vance

The LSI controller may not work in Legacy mode, but you can try


This is a supported controller, HP H240 12Gb 2-ports Int Smart Host Bus Adapter 726907-B21. Once installed, you need to use HPSSA and configure the controller for HBA mode.
