Apple Xraid, use with Ms Windows 2008 on HP server
Posted on 2009-04-05
I would like to use a spare Xraid on my new Hyper-V SCMM Library manager. It is a Dl360 G5 from HP.
- a) there is any third party Radi administration utility able to work with the Xraid ? the only RaidAdmin utility I found is the one from Apple, but the release for Windows is very outdated, much older than the Firmware version on the Xraid, and I know from past troubles that the two - Radiadmin+firmware - must be at the same revision level to work reliably;
b) I'm trying to use an FC Card from Apple - really an LSI 7202P - but even if I installed the correct drivers the board refuse to work properly, I always get an error from the device management utility of Windows 2008 server Std 64 bit.
LEast but not least HP does provide and certify only 4 Gb FC boards for the Dl360 G5, any suggestion about an FC card that should work ?
Thank you in advance for your help.
