NC360T and DL380G4

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

 

Saturday I thought to add a NC360T to a DL380G4 but I had some difficulties. The slot was much longer than the connector on the NIC, the force needed to insert the NIc into the slot was quite high and I was afraid to bend and break something so I gave up.

 

Can anybody of you confirm that I can install such NIC in the server?

 

From this post, found after having tried to insert such card in the server,

 

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-Netservers/Supported-NIC-cards-for-the-DL380-G4/td-p/7...

 

I came up with this document

 

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/productbulletin.html#spectype=worldwide&type=html&doci...

 

Where the ni NC360T is mentioned

 

Just to give you an idea, the riser board is the following

http://www.ebay.fr/itm/HP-359248-001-Proliant-DL380-G4-PCI-X-Riser-Card-Plus-Assembly-Cage-/40049894...

 

Is the NC360T supposed to fin in there?

 

Otherwise which NIC should I buy?

I need it because one of the sockets doesn't retain the acble's plug any more.

 

Thanks,

 

Alex

Re: NC360T and DL380G4

I guess the slots on the riser board are PCI eXtended (PCI-X)

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI-X

 

 

whilst the connector of the NC360T is a PCI express http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

 

and hence non-compatible at all.

 

Which card can I insert?

 

Thanks,

 

Alex

Re: NC360T and DL380G4

I'm pretty sure the default riser card in the DL380 G4 had PCI-X slots. THe NC360T is a PCI-e device. There was an optional PCI-e Riser card for the server.

 

You can refer to the Quickspecs http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/images/ap/DL380G4_v37.PDF

Thanks Jimmy

 

I'll buy PCI-X cards, even though they are old and less performant. I need just to add some network redundancy but hopefully the entire serve rwill be replaced soon :-)
