Look who just spook the hell out of me !
I’m an homelaber with a HPE gen9 pl380 that i got from ebay. I fixed it up and it was working well for 2y.
But today without any warning the server went offline, fan screaming, red blinking light. Ilo told me my smart-array just went haywire.
I went for the good old “unplug and press the power button for 30sec” and aside of a warning about the issue when the server booted, all green.
Happily nothing had been lost, but it could use a driver update… Sadly “update” are behind a paywall, one so expensive no homelab could afford.
I was wondering if anyone had driver from there own dl380 more recent than mine and be willing to share. HPE did get there software money from the original buyer, but they don’t care about that
If this is considered by the mod to be “request for illegal software”, i’m sorry and please delete the post, But i believe in good faith that is isn’t …
