Hi,

 

None from HP i guess.

You have to buy one from non-hp branded.

 

Just get a card which is compatible with the server PCI technology.

Expansion slot, PCIe x8 and PCIe x16.

 

Check QuickSpecs for Expansion Slot information.

Re: Video card for the Proliant DL320e G8

 

Hi,

 

No video cards have been tested by HP on this server and hence an HP option is unavailable. Please refer to section "Component identification > Rear panel components > PCIe riser board slot definitions" of the server's Maintenance and service guide for the specfication of PCIe card that may be installed and its negotiatable speed.

 

Hope this helps!

Have you looked at getting a VGA to HDMI converter?

Re: Video card for the Proliant DL320e G8

Hi,

did you get it to work?

I'm trying something similar at the moment with a HP FirePro V3900 (A6R69AA) card and the bloody thing just won't get through Post. (No errors shown though, ILO just says no PCI Cards found). Although i don't need any video output from it, just RemoteFX.

I tried this on a DL320e G8v2, i3, 250w, with a P410 card in the 8x Slot and the V3900 in the 16x one.

I would be glad to hear any ideas before throwing the whole thing out. A bigger CommonSlot power unit seems to be impossible too.. **bleep** entry level stuff...

Re: Video card for the Proliant DL320e G8

I strongly advise you NOT TO BUY any video card recommended to you here or elsewhere unless the recommender has actually used the card with the same sever successfully. I have bought over a dozen video cards based on recommendations and none works on my HP servers. Avoid the frustration, wasted money and time . 

HP video card upgrade is the worst aspect of HP servers. It is a nighmare, trying to find one to fit. The server embedded graphics cards are deplorable and  probable designed for low resolution monitors of 10-20 years ago. They are terrible when you use them to run modern 24" monitors. (And readers, please don't remind me that servers are not desktops!) 

Indeed, I am forced to sell one of my severs due to frustration in not being able to find a suitable card for it to get better resoutions and speed. I will also not be buying HP server anymore until HP provides list of recommended video cards to upgrade its servers or use better quality embedded graphics cards.

Re: Video card for the Proliant DL320e G8

i hear you.. very frustrating. My last try will be a quadro nvs X1 card. Maybe that'll work :/

Re: Video card for the Proliant DL320e G8

good news, i got it working.

Nvidia Quadro NVS290 PCIe X1 Card.

Just be sure to set your bios to embedded primary, optional secondary or you won't see anything through ilo anymore ;)

 

edit: Bios settings as follows:

Optional primary, embedded secondary -> windows gets the quadro as primary, remotefx works

Remote Video on -> ILO remote console works till windows boots up, so changes can be made. windows only rdp of course, no remote console possible anymore.

 

sort of a success.. even google earth works via rdp. not really smooth, but it works anyways.. (win server 2008r2)

I am happy for you. I am still looking for one that actually works in my HP DL385 G6.
