How to Install e208i-p RAID Card in Microserver Gen 10 Plus

The HP SmartArray e208I-p card is recommended for HW RAID in the Microserver Gen 10 Plus.

I can't find any information on how to install this card in this machine. I'm unclear how the SFF-8087 connector from the 4 SATA drives can connect into the SFF-8643 connector on the RAID card.

Any guidance welcomed.

Hi @Beckmeister ,

Thank you for the Post.

Here the Ports are Internal : 8 SAS/SATA lanes across 2 x4 internal Mini-SAS ports.

Refer : https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=emr_na-a00026432en_us

If available kindly share the Part Number of the Cables.

Also if you have identical Server do check and compare the details of the Cables.

Thank you

Ram

Hi Ram,

Thanks for the information. That is the procedure I couldn't find.

I now realise that the connectors on this card do match the server after all. I had seen some incorrect information on a couple of retailer websites that had confused me.

I now have a real HW RAID problem which I will raise in a separate topic.

Thanks, BM.
