If you use the built in P410i array controller you should make sure you have or get the battery back up so the write cache is enabled or ZFS performance will be horrible. Also it is recommended that you install HP's free hpacucli command to make it easier to enable swapped out hotswap drives.

Intel 5520 chipset based motherboard

  • Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5709
  • p410i RAID controller performance sucks like a hoover vaccum. No JBOD support.
  • Requires new firmware all around or the installation of an SSD triggers a bug that starts a thermal shutdown
  • iLO works as expected. Download drivers directly from HP along with the scripting toolkit to make bios configuration changes in OS – neat level of integration
  • Expect monthly firmware updates on this platform. HP has a fix it in the field approach
  • There has been some conflict between LSI cards and HPs passive midplane. Every other column of disks must be left vacant or data corruption occurs. Last December LSI and HP were pointing fingers at each other, however, this problem may be resolved. I am no longer in a position where i can risk the data on the disks to find out. I installed both midplanes and half the drive slots are empty at the moment.

(6x blade server

presented as SAN)

No particular Solaris-related problems (all networking and storage components recognized by oi_151a and several older Solaris 10 distros).
Did not test MPxIO with Solaris because this box had no secondary IO controller (had it working with Linux and Windows on other such boxes).

However the stability of remote serial console, remote graphical jKVM and remote media used for installation leaves a lot better to be desired (in comparison with Sun Fire IPMI/ILOM interfaces). May be a pain to install over pure remote-console networking, but this regards any OS we tried with the server. Physical distro media is required very much recommended. After that, all works well =)

oi_151a1 no problems

  • Intel S5520 motherboard
  • Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family)
  • Intel Corporation 82575EB Gigabit Network Connection
  • RMM3 works as expected (as an OEMd service processor from AMI), but no bmc driver support in OI (works in Solaris 11)
  • Onboard SATA/SAS ports work in AHCI mode on the passive midplane but hot plug seems broken. I recommend internal LSI cards in any case.
  • I did not try the serial console, but I would assume that works
  • Hardware throws ECC errors on large memory installations (96GB) up until version 50 of firmware. Recommend v60+
  • System is unable to fast boot and generates an error about a 32bit address. Alter boot config in the repo to do a full boot to work around this problem.
