Hello,
Does it have a v1, v1.1 or v2 pci-express sub-system in this server? I need to know as the new 6Gb/s Areca SAS RAID cards are v2, but the 3GB/s ones are v1 (or v1.1?)

That unfortunately doesn't tell you what version it is, nor does the PDF Tech Spec sheet

As a matter of interest why are you putting an Areca card in it when HP do perfectly good SAS RAID controllers themselves?

The slots are generation 1 (or maybe 1.1) since it doesn't say gen2 in the quickspecs (it does say gen2 on later generations of Proliant). It ought to work anyway since PCIe will negotiate down (actually it negotiates from the bottom up), the HP PCIe gen2 cards are supported since you can see the P212 and 411 are listed in the servers specs.
