XPenology on HP DL 380 G5 (smart array P800)

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all who makes possible the realization of XPEnology.

 

I try to install XPEN in to HP DL380 G5 server with P400 and P800 smart array, but it has not find any HDD after loader boot, P400 and P800 is in supported hardware for 5.2 version(https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/4980-gt-hardware-supported-list-for-dsm-52-lt/). I try XPEnoBoot 5.2-5644 and XPEnoBoot 5.2-5967 with same result - no HDD find. In P400 and in P800 created RAID 1 and RAID 5 with logical drives(cciss mode), and openmediavault is succesfully install with this hardware and arrays config.

Maybe i need to do something additional to install XPEN on this hardware?

Thank you.

it documented that it does not work for 6.1

i think 6.0 does work so if you really have to, you can use dsm 6.0 (or omv)

...

[…] Either confirmed by users that it is not working OR not supported for DSM 6.1 (kernel 3.10.102) OR does not load at all. Driver was compiled/tested but removed - if someone finds a way to get it working in some way, tell us here and it will be added

You think that smart array p400&p800 do not work in 5.2 DSM version and will work in 6.0 ? If so then further updates will be impossible, and then maybe better to use esxi with DSM 6.2 ?

I have a HP DL360 G7 and i had the same problem.

in the end I ended up replacing the HP smart array 410 controller with a  LSI SAS 9207-8i (SKU : LSI00302 | EAN : 0830343006892 )
