Drive for HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10 / Unidad para HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10

Hi there,

We have purchased an HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10 server with Product No.: P17079-B21 for the management of our program in our offices at the local network level. We have installed another 16GB RAM memory identical to the original with PN: 879527-091 so that it has a total of 32GB and we have installed it in port B, so far everything is correct.

But we are having trouble finding the right hard drive and installing Ubuntu Server.
We first installed an HPE SSD 5300 Pro with PN: P19933-001. We managed to get the system installed but the fans were going crazy and we figured it wasn't the right one.

Then we installed an HPE LFF Hot Plug SAS 2TB PN: P50262-001 but it doesn't recognize it and we can't even initialize the installation. We have tried with Ubuntu and with Windows Server 2016 without success.

My question is, what do I have to change? And if it is the hard drive, what hard drive do you recommend for a MySQL database?

I have read a lot of articles in the web and consulted the manuals, even when we bought the SAS drive seemed like it was made for this server but we didn't made it. We also have tried in the different BIOS configurations but nothing.

Thank you for your time.



Hemos adquirido un servidor HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10 con Product No.: P17079-B21 para la gestión de nuestro programa en nuestras oficinas a nivel de red local. Hemos instalado otra memoria RAM de 16GB idéntica a la original con PN: 879527-091 para que tenga un total de 32GB y la hemos instalado en el puerto B, hasta el momento todo correcto.

Pero tenemos problemas para encontrar el disco duro correcto e instalar Ubuntu Server.
Primero instalamos un SSD 5300 Pro de HPE con PN: P19933-001. Conseguimos instalar el sistema pero los ventiladores iban como locos y supusimos que no era el correcto.

Luego instalamos un HPE LFF Hot Plug SAS 2TB PN: P50262-001 pero no lo reconoce y no podemos ni siquiera inicializar la instalación. Hemos probado con Ubuntu y con Windows Server 2016 sin exito.

Mi pregunta es, ¿que tengo que cambiar? y si es el disco duro, ¿qué disco duro nos recomiendan para una base de datos MySQL?

He leido varios articulos y manuales al respecto, y al comprar disco duro SAS parecía que era el indicado para este modelo pero no hemos tenido éxito. También hemos hecho la prueba en los diferentes modos de la BIOS sin éxito.

Les agradezco la ayuda.

f the  HPE Smart Array S100i SR Gen10 SW RAID controller has been enabled in UEFI System Utilities, then it supports only Windows. Please refer to page 5, of the server's QuickSpecs, section Standard Features > Storage Controllers > Software RAID.

When it is set to Legacy BIOS mode and the storage controller mode to AHCI mode, then it would be possilble.
