Network Controller

Four (4) embedded Gigabit Ethernet network adapter ports, plus (1) additional management network adapter port:

  • One (1) embedded NC326i Dual Port Gigabit Server Adapter
  • Two (2) embedded NC373i Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapters with TCP/IP offload engine for Microsoft Windows, iSCSI boot, and optional accelerated iSCSI
  • One (1) additional embedded 10/100 network adapter dedicated to iLO 2 management

NOTE: The Gigabit Ethernet adapters transmit from the server at 2000 Mbps, full duplex per port. However, within a Linux environment, the speed can be reduced or "throttled" using a feature available within the Linux operating system; see the white paper at: http://h71028.www7.hp.com/ERC/downloads/4AA1-5513ENW.pdf for more information.

Once the adapter signal reaches the interconnect within the blade enclosure and communicates outside the blade enclosure to the LAN, the blade interconnect uplink types and settings determine the cable media, speed, duplex mode, and auto negotiation mode. Interconnects are available with Ethernet uplinks supporting 10/100/1000T, 10/100/1000 SFP, 1000 SX fiber, and 10Gb speeds.

Multifunction Networking

The embedded multifunction NC373i combines standard Gigabit Ethernet networking, TCP/IP offload engine (TOE) for Microsoft Windows, iSCSI boot, and optional accelerated iSCSI into a single adapter.

  • TOE moves the processing of data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to the network card, freeing CPU cycles for other activities. With TOE, network communications are improved, and server efficiency is increased. The NC373i offers TOE for Microsoft® Windows environments.
  • The iSCSI boot allows the BL480c to boot from a remote operating system (OS) image located on a storage area network (SAN). The BL480c uses an iSCSI firmware image (iSCSI boot option ROM) making the remote disk drive appear as a local, bootable C: drive. The BL480c is configured to connect to and boot from the iSCSI target disk on the network and download the OS image from the iSCSI target disk. The iSCSI boot option ROM is supplied by HP at no cost. The additional cost and mezzanine slot usage of an add-in iSCSI HBA card is not required. Additionally, the HP iSCSI boot solution includes scripts to significantly simplify the installation process.

I/O Expansion Slots Three I/O expansion mezzanine slots; one Type I x4 PCIe (15 watts) and two x8 PCIe (25 watts)

Integrated Manageability HP ProLiant Onboard Administrator (includes but not limited to functionality in Integrated Lights-Out 2 Standard Blade Edition (iLO 2)

Storage Controller

The server includes an integrated Smart Array P400i Controller. The P400i is an x8 PCI Express serial attached SCSI (SAS) v1.0 embedded RAID controller and provides server performance and reliability through its support of advanced SCSI technology and RAID capabilities. The P400i includes 256MB of 40-bit ECC protected cache and supports RAID levels 0 (striping), 1 (mirroring), and 5 (distributed data guarding).

The controller supports both SAS and SATA hard drives letting you deploy drive technology as needed to fit your computing environment. The sever provides four hot-plug drive bays for up to 1.2TB of SAS and 1.0TB of SATA storage.

Providing high availability data cache retention, the Smart Array P400i supports two battery backed write cache (BBWC) options:

  • BBWC for the existing 256GB cache.
  • Upgrade to 72-bit 512MB ECC protected cache with BBWC.

If additional SAS or SATA drives are desired, the server supports the StorageWorks SB40c Storage Blade. For additional information, see: http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/sb40c/index.html.

Memory

NOTE: Memory configurations listed do not apply to "Factory Integrated Models".

DIMM installation guidelines:

  1. The maximum memory is 64 GB
  2. All DIMMs must be PC2-5300 fully buffered DIMMs operating at 667 MHz.
  3. Both DIMM slots in a memory bank must be populated.
  4. Banks must be populated in sequential alphabetic order, starting with bank A.
  5. Both DIMMs in a memory bank must be identical. Install identical DIMMs as pairs only, starting with DIMM socket 1, bank A.
  6. Multiple advanced memory protection (AMP) modes are supported, based on FBDIMM population and RBSU selection. The server blade defaults to Advanced ECC.
