Upgrade p400 in SB40c to p410i

Hello,

In ESXi 6u2 my p400 storage controller in my SB40c Storage Blade has been deprecated.  I've tried installing .vibs from previoius ESXi versions to no avail,  As it's a pci type card in the blade as shown in this link http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c00990869 

Can it be upgraded to a p410i card? 

http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/portal/site/hpsc/public/psi/home?sp4ts.oid=3902574&ac.admitted=1488285266204.125225703.1851288163

Thanks

Re: Upgrade p400 in SB40c to p410i

Hello!

I  guess you are refering to P410 (wothout the i, the P410i is the integrated version. I noticed they show a PCI version in the picture for the P410i in the link you sent)

But I just upgraded a SB40c to a P410 and it worked just fine. I don't think it's really supported though, but i'm not sure.

The only issue is that it's a little bit tight fit between one of the SAS connectors on the motherboard and the connector on the P410, but not a big thing.

Hi,

Great minds must think alike!  I just did this earlier today, like you say it's a simple switch out and needs different SAS cables but works fine.  Also a different cable from the battery cache.

Way cheaper than buying a new storage blade.

Thanks.

Hi both, @Stefanliss  @citizenfour  sorry to hihjack this thread but I've got an SB40c-related issue and you're obviously using yours already (well done with the upgrade BTW).

Rather than retype my issue (TL;DR - can't see the SB40c via the blade in order to create a storage volume), if you get some time can you review this link and see if you can help me out with a process?

Thanks in advance,
Andy

Sorry. I have read the thread but i can't come up with anything to add, and I have sold my bladeservers now so can't test anything.
