I’ve been asked to take over the administration of an HP Pavilion ML115 server running Windows SBS2003.

The HP site lists ML115 & ML115G5 models. The case says ML115. It appears to run fine except it is slow because of its age.
 
I have the following questions:
 
1.  Without shutting it down and opening the case, how do I determine if it’s a G5 model?
2.  I don’t think its drivers, bios and firmware have been  updates in years. Does HP have a analyzer tool that checks the drivers and displays the available driver updates?
3.  In Device Mgr, I see three identical HD’s. I expected to see one raid controller showing one drive (that would actually be three drives in a raid configuration).  How do I determine the exact hardware config without restarting the server and going into the raid bios (if it has one) to see what is setup?

Also, Dell provide OMSA which is a great tool to determine the health of the server and list of all components. Does HP have provide a free utility like it?

1. Lookup the serial number here and it should tell you the model and base configuration.

2.  No, you'd have to download the PSP for the model of server you're working with.  (proliant support pack)

3.   If there is a RAID controller on board, you should be able to access the HP ACU from the HP management tools.  There should be a menu item for this in program files.
