Hi all -
Last year when we prepared to install CUCM 6.X on HP supplied DL380G5 servers, not MCS servers, the DVD would not load. We finally located in the "fine print" the statement that the RAID controller cards need to be in a specific slot position. We ended up ordering the following part number 405160-B21 HP SMART ARRAY P400/256 DL38X LP FIO CTR, which is a low-profile card and allowed us to continue with the install. I'm getting ready to order 4 new HP DL380G5 servers that match the supported Unity Connection hardware platform 3 configuration (for two active-active clusters digitally networked). The UC supported platform says RAID controller P400 405132-B21. Has anyone experienced problems with UC on a DL380G5 with this controller card? Or have you installed the 405160-B21 model? An update since I initially posted too - the HP online ordering for DL380G5 servers and what is available doesn't match the supported platforms document since it was updated last year. So can I use 3.X GHz processors instead of 2.33? How specific is the hardware check and will dual core or quad core work in this configuration?
Thanks much, Ginger
