adding extra NIC to hp proliant dl180 g5

Hello

I need to add an extra NIC to my HP Proliant DL180 G5 server.
Could you help me where can I add it?

The other problem is, I have 4 SAS hard disks. I need to add 1 estra SATA disk. does it degrade the speed and perfomance of my SAS disks?

Thank you.

Re: adding extra NIC to hp proliant dl180 g5

Not sure I understand the first question......Are you asking where the PCI slots are? If so, you will need to pull the cover off and to the left hand side, in the rear, you will see the PCI riser board. You can add the NIC there.

The question regarding the additional SATA disk is mainly dependant on whether you plan on making that new drive part of the existing array. If you are planning on doing this then it will cause all of the other (SAS) drives to perform poorer. If you create a new array with a new logical drive it should not cause any issues with the SAS drives.

I need to add an extra NIC to my HP Proliant DL180 G5 server. There is a RAID controller card installed which covers up the PCIe slots

Could you help me where can I add it?

This server has only 2 full height PCIe slots available. If the only thing in the PCi slots is the smart array controller then you should still have another available.

In order to install an additional PCI card it will require the riser actually be removed from the server to install the additional card.

second question

if you controller supports both Types of HDDs won't be any performance issue
