I'm adding some Mellanox cards and it would be nice to be able to pull as much throughput as possible. I figure I'll just plug the surviving raid expander card into a completely separate chassis to free up a slot if I can get a total of four x8 slot's per server instead of just two. What is stated in the quickspecs are what HPE has tested officially with that model and recommended. You could try using riser for the DL G7, and it may or may not work. And even though it may work, you might encounter that some issues, and when you call in HPE support assuming you still have HPE support for them , HPE support might just tell you to replace it with a HPE recommended part for support.

I'm not really sure what you're getting at, OP. The quickspecs lists everything that is officially supported. Will other devices work? I believe the models are AMD based. I think you'd be better off looking for a riser from another Intel based model, but again your taking a risk and of its for production use, it may not be a good risk to take.
HP would probably be horrified at the idea of me moving the expander to an entirely unrelated chassis and cabling it back to one of these servers; but there is no technical reason not to do so. And the riser I specified isn't specific to a cpu vendor, or it wouldn't be on the quickspecs for both intel and amd based systems.
There could be some other factor which makes it incompatible, which is - again - why I'm seeking an answer from someone who might actually know. You certainly are not required to have this knowledge, but your contribution to the conversation so far is 'I dunno' - which is the same information I had when I posed the question. A part not being listed in Quickspecs means very little - certainly not that it would be an unsupported part.

And there is bad info aplenty in partsurfer, which means the Standard Models pages are tainted as well. What they are describing is the physical slot and not the electrical properties, the information is either wrong or useless - you could have slots with those physical characteristics, but electrically 1x. The IB cards I was going to buy are sold, so I needed to find an alternative source or alternative card.
Mind you, a G7 cannot fully utilize the card, but since these servers have at most another months, it will be nice to move them into the new servers. No need for support contracts when you have quality generic gear and an understanding that at some point I'll inevitably need to overnight a server. Hasn't happened yet, and I could buy several servers for what I've saved in support contracts alone. And even though these G7's are way past retirement age, I'm betting they'll hang around in tertiary roles for another 5 years.
To continue this discussion, please ask a new question. Get answers from your peers along with millions of IT pros who visit Spiceworks. I need to add risers to both of my g7's. I can't tell if this means it's not compatible, or is omitted from this list but compatible. Just squeezing a few more months from these boat anchors until the next server refresh. At that point they'll be storage only and I need to maximize both raid and network throughput. Spiceworks Help Desk. The help desk software for IT.

The quickspecs are exactly that - a short description and abbreviated parts list. It can only show you what is compatible - it doesn't tell you what isn't.
Both are pcie 2. I have a G4 that's another story - gonna make a tool drawer out of that one. Hi Robert, What is stated in the quickspecs are what HPE has tested officially with that model and recommended.
HPE , Followers Follow. This is why I was looking for an answer from someone who actually knew whether or not it works. I doesn't particularly care what is officially supported - that's not remotely relevant to me.
HP's parts inventory is a mess. I have determined that the card is in fact compatible. Quickspecs are exactly what they say they are a quick terse listing of common parts. They are not authoritative, nor a complete listing. The Options Parts page lists it correctly as a 2 x x8 part. I can - and did - look up the information. I was just hoping someone might have already known the answer. There is a bright side to this though.
I noticed and higher end model on HP's site that was originally the top option on the G7.

I'm done with HP server's and going back to Supermicro. My strategy has come to be purchasing used servers - "top of the line a generation behind. I grabbed your archive though - I'd be a fool to let valuable information pass me by.
I could keep them as mainline if they were pci 3. This topic has been locked by an administrator and is no longer open for commenting. Read these next
