Hi Intel Community
Assuming I have Proliant DL380 G9 servers with HP nvme PCIe SSD capability:
774741-B21 HPE DL380 Gen9 NVMe 6 Solid State Drive Express Bay Enablement Kit
719079-B21 HPE DL380 Gen9 High Performance Fan Kit
727250-B21 HPE 12GB SAS Expander Card with Cables for DL380 Gen9
Does anyone know if the Intel dc p4510 2.5" will work in the 6 Express Bay?
Mainly if the DL380 Gen9 is blocking the SSD because of an non HPE firmware.
I have read that the DL380 Gen10 have Firmware validation, so they are probably incompatible.
I have also found this thread:
Basically the same hard disk, but over a PCIE U.2 Adapter card.
Does anyone know?
I try to contact HPE as well but, maybe someone has tried it...
Thank you for your interest in the Intel® SSD DC P4510 Series.
I understand that you would like to know if the aforementioned drive is compatible with the HPE* ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Base Server.
The official list of tested and validated systems can be seen here https://ark.intel.com/products/122572/Intel-SSD-DC-P4510-Series-8_0TB-2_5in-PCIe-3_1-x4-3D2-TLC# tab-blade-1-1 under "Compatible Products".
You mentioned that you have tried contacting the manufacturer, which as stated in the thread that you shared, is our suggestion. Especially since we don't support third party adapters (we recommend using the native ports on the server).
According to community member Colinb00 such setup is possible with the adequate adapter, but we can't confirm that. I also noticed that you have asked him for some advice so please keep visiting the community to see if he or another community member can provide assistance in this specific matter.
In case you have any update or question don't hesitate to contact us.
I can cofirm the Intel DC P4510 2.5" SSD works with the Delock 4x PCI Express U.2 NVMe Adapter in a HPE DL380 Gen9 like a charm.
