i have new DL380e G8 with P420 1GB BBWC + 8xSATA RAID 10, running Debian Jessie. Problem - P420 is crashing under load after 3-5 days:
P420 in slot2:
Aug 14 06:51:26 zaloher smartd: Device: /dev/sda [cciss_disk_00] [SAT], failed to read SMART Attribute Data
Aug 14 06:51:26 zaloher smartd: Sending warning via <mail> to root ...
Aug 14 06:51:27 zaloher smartd: Warning via <mail> to root: successful
Aug 14 06:51:27 zaloher smartd: Device: /dev/sda [cciss_disk_04] [SAT], previous self-test completed without error
Aug 14 07:15:09 zaloher kernel: [233654.188156] hpsa 0000:0a:00.0: cmd_special_alloc returned NULL!
Aug 14 07:21:26 zaloher smartd: Device: /dev/sda [cciss_disk_00] [SAT], failed to read SMART Attribute Data
checking hpacucli is randomly working/not working 2-3 hours and after it it definitely lost P420 and server hangs.
Two weeks before (different P420 in slot3, same server):
hpsa 0000:0d:00.0: cmd_special_alloc returned NULL
hpsa: 0000:0d:00.0: report physical LUNs failed.
Buffer I/O error on device sda1, logical block XXXXXXXXX
Aborting journal on device sda1-8
In both cases in ILO is P420 active and all disks present (green status). No error in Health log etc., just high temperature (as usual on P420).
We are using Debian Jessie (kernel 3.14) on G6/G7 servers with p410 under load without problem. Only G8 (kernel 3.14,3.16) with P420 is hanging, when it ran 5 months without monitoring and load, no hangs occured.
BIOS P73: 02/10/14, 11/12/2013
P420: 1.86, 5.42 (latest)
Any help or i need open case with HP? We dont have payed support.

Also I might suggest dropping the bus speed of the disks back to 3gbp/sec like the P410 - P420 will try to run at 6gbp/sec which may cause issues with some drive combinations.
What drives are you using btw? NON-HP?

Server is 8LFF, so cooling down P420 is problematic due backplane.
ILO fans: 34%, temp: 85C
hpacucli: Controller temp: 88C, Cache: 44C, Capacitor: 48C
