    DL180 G6

      Hello,

       

       

      Has anybody test ESXi4 on a HP DL180 G6 server?, it's not in the official HCL for ESXi 4 but it's for ESX4 (why the difference?)

       

       

      The hardware is:

       

       

      HP NC362i Dual Port NIC

       

       

      HP Smart Array P410

       

       

      Thanks

          It may not be in the official HCL for ESXi simply because it hasn't gone through testing. If you have the equipment I would just install. Use the HP version download from the HP website.

            I don't have the equipment, I'm looking for buying it, but I want to be sure it will work before.

             

             

            Another thing that I see in the forums is that a BBWC is needed for optimum performance with P410 controller, but I don't know if this is always or only if you arrange disk in array configuration.

              BBWC is an always. I would talk to HP and see if they support ESXi on the machine.
