One of our file servers has just blown its 6400 RAID controller HP Part number 309520-001
. The card is fairly old (05/03) and has done its duty after 10 years, server itself is in good state (Proliant DL380 G4) and I am now wondering what replacement to get.
The server is FS and light use only. OS is on Channel 1, FS on CH2.
Should I just replace with a newer 6400, or is there a different model you would rather recommend?
For those interested what the fault is, system will boot but initialisation would take a good 5 minutes with the following screen displayed after:
As you can see, Drive Array Controller Failure (Command Failure (cmd=11h, err=020h)]
suggests the controller had it. The only thing I have not done is clearing out the cache...
Thanks for your help
