HP Proliant ML115 Server ID & Updates
Posted on 2014-04-23
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?
