good day everybody!
we have DL380G5 with smart array p400 controller. Same disks in server is 431944-B21 (SAS) and part is 516814-B21 (SAS 6G), all perfectly work.
We want use a full power SAS 6G technology.
I understand we need to change RAID controller to P420,
but can't understand need to be replaced cable from RAID to disk farm?
and disk farm support work on 6G speed?
Solved! Go to Solution.

P420 controller can be used only on Gen8 servers and not on any other Generations

ok. what you say about P410?
(i can't understand what meaning under "P420 controller can be used only on Gen8 servers and not on any other Generations " ? it's a card with controller, and in hardware part be work with any hardware with PCI-express port (pnP card). Or you talk about HP tested solution?)

HP Smart Array P222, P420, P421, and P822 Controllers should NOT be configured in HP ProLiant G6 or G7 servers. Installing these controllers in an HP ProLiant G6 or G7 server is not supported and could possibly result in damage to the controller
