HP B110i SATA RAID system management GUI on SBS2011

One of our customers is running a HP Proliant ML110G6 server with B110i RAID built-in however there doesn't seem to be a GUI utility to see if drives are faulty etc without rebooting etc.

Can see that there is for SBS2008 x64 and wondered whether anyone has any experience of loading this in this environment.

Does it support B100i though since it's not a proper RAID controller?

You can try to download and install the array configuration utility so you can at least look at the state of it now and then but it would be best to replace with a proper controller, as far as I know B100i is the chipset controller with a BIOS tweak to make it look a bit HP'ish. It's really a pile of monkey's poo, you'd probably be better off with software RAID.

Installing SBS 2011 on a HP ML350 servers with the HP Smartstart installs the software automatic and it works fine. So there will be no problem installing the array software. Just download the version that is for windows 2008 R2 because this is the same kernal as SBS 2011 is using.


That's true; but this is a ML110 rather than an ML350 according to the question.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I read that too, but the array softwar from HP is the same software, so if it installs on SBS 2011 on a ML350 it will install on SBS 2011 on a ML110. It is the exact same version.
