Is it possible turn off the on-board RAID controller on a HP Proliant DL380 G5 server? I've been through all the options and can't find it.

Anyone else come across this?

Thx

There is no onboard SMART Array in a DL380G5

If you bought a Top Value, Base or Performance model (rather than entry) then it will have had either an E200i or a P400 controller in it

If this is the case and you dont want to boot from it then you'll need to change the boot order by going into the ROM BASED Setup Utlity (RBSU) at startup.

Obvioulsy if you're using internal disks and the cage is connected to the RAID controller you'll have issues so you need to check what's where first.

What exactly are you trying to achieve?
