Hi everybody I own a HP DL380 g7 which works fine. Today I added a p822 controller for my d2700 storageworks. But when a attache the d2700 the controller doesn’t initialize anymore. If I start the server and attache the d2700 sas cables when it’s started it finds the d2700 and I can see the disks. Obviously I can’t use it this way because when i reboot I need to unplug and plug the sas cables again. Not really allot of information to find online. Except for firmware update. Anybody have any experience with firmware updates in proxmox for HP servers gen7 ? Thanks for any advice.

    I don’t have specific experience with the gen7 series, but firmware updates ostensibly come as an ISO or USB image which you can boot in lieu of your normal OS to apply firmware updates. At least, that’s one of the ways I think HP would still support, in case customers are running neither Windows nor a Linux-based OS.

    To rule out a cable-specific electrical issue at boot, what happens if you boot the server with the cables attached to the controller, but not attached to the d2700?

          Can’t say if it is the update for the disk shelf. I updated everything at once with the service pack.
