Question about HP Compaq ProLiant DL380 G4 Server
Our IT said that our Compaq Proliant DL380 can only handle a maximum of 28G Hard Drive because of BIOS age. We only have about 100mg of free space left on a Novel platform. Is there an updated BIOS Flash that will enable us to install a larger Hard Drive? If so, please paste the link.
HI, rack of HP ProLiant servers is fairly easy to manage the cables at the rear by installing the included cable arms and a few ties; try repeating for a rack of DL360 1U pizzabox servers and problems rapidly ensue. This doesn't account for cable length sometimes being inadequate or overly excessive, and the fact that mounting and connecting cables to servers in the rear of a rack is unpleasant at the best of times, but even worse when 30 other servers are producing heat and making the rear of the rack a pretty hot and unpleasant place.

I have a DL380 G4 running 6 x 72G at RAID 5 right now. No issues.

Check on the HP website for BIOS updates and Firmware updates for your raid controller. This sounds very odd that there is a 28GB limitation on drive size? What size drives are in there now? They usually step up in size like 9GB, 18GB, 36GB, 72GB, etc.... Your IT guy maybe misinformed.
