PowerEdge R220 upgrade S110 to H310 wich Raid Card

Hello 

Im using R220 with S110 soft RAID1 i want to upgrade to HW RAID H310

I have dilema about proper card.

From owners manual:
https://www.dell.com/support/manuals/us/en/04/poweredge-r220/per220ompublication/expansion-card-inst...

Expansion card installation guidelines
NOTE: To use an expansion card, you need to install an expansion-card riser. If your system configuration does not include the expansion-card riser, purchase a kit with the riser.
NOTE: If you are installing an expansion card, purchase and install fan 3.
Your system supports one of the following expansion cards:
PCI Express Generation 3 expansion card.
PERC H310/H710/H810
NOTE: When you install a PERC card, connect the data and power cables to the hard drive using a PERC card cable adapter.

From technical guide:
https://cdn.cnetcontent.com/60/ca/60cafce9-16c7-402b-b79b-78a5682aed49.pdf page 21
PERC H310
Internal
8-port, internal 6Gb/s PCIe RAID
No hot-swap. No support for tape or RAID 10, 5, 50 0, 1
Integrated mini-type
Value

What means Integrated mini-type? Is it Adapter H310, H310 Mini Mono or H310 Mini Blade

If its mono or blade where to connect it ?

Re: PowerEdge R220 upgrade S110 to H310 wich Raid Card

Hello

The tech guide that states the mini version is supported appears to be incorrect. I was unable to find that guide on any of our sites. If you locate it on one of our sites give me a link and I can submit to have it corrected.

I show that only the adapter version of the H310 is supported in the R220.

Thanks

I wouldn't use that one, it is for a Precision workstation. It uses different firmware and may not work properly.

3P0R3 - H310 Adapter
FNKP2 - LED cable
PGKX4 - SAS cable

I think those are the parts you need.

Re: PowerEdge R220 upgrade S110 to H310 wich Raid Card

I have another question. Is it possible to run 2 raid controlers on server ? S110 and H310 at the same time ?

I woud like to migrate working system form array on S110 to new SSD array on H310. Does anyknow knows is it possible ?

And next thing. Can I install H310 to working on S110 windows system? or does the server will disable S110 due to detection of H310 ?
