Poweredge R430 - Network Daughter card(NDC) suggestion & HBA

Jump to solution

Hi Team,

We are going to setup ESXi 6.7 U3 or ESXi 7.0 on PE R 430.

We are looking for a best & compatible 10 G NDC for these servers.

I like to go with "Broadcom 57810S chipset"  instead of Intel & Qlogic.I hope this is compatible & best one for R430. Any suggestions?

1) Intel x520 Dual Port 10Gb KR NDC: A dual-port 10GbE blade NDC based on the
Intel x520 chipset


2) Broadcom 57810S Dual Port 10Gb KR NDC: A dual-port 10GbE blade NDC based on the
Broadcom 57810S chipset


3) QLogic QMD8262-k Dual Port 10Gb KR NDC: A dual-port 10GbE blade NDC based on the
QLogic P3+ chipset

HBA--> Right now the server R 430 has integrated " PERC H730 Mini (Embedded)" and like to replace with "HBA 330"

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Manivel RR

Hello ManivelRR,

 

In regard to the NICs you have listed; They are all for a Blade unit and not a Rack server.

 

Below are some 57810S and the HBA you requested.

 

Network cards:

Qlogic bought the 57810S  from Broadcom so they are no longer branded as Broadcom:

 

PN# HN10N  - QLogic 57810S Dual 10GE PCIe Standup Base-T CNA, Dual Port, Network Card, Low Profile

 

PN# N20KJ   - QLogic 57810S Dual 10GE PCIe Standup SFP+/DA CNA Dual Port, Network Card, 10 Gb, Version 2

 

PN# W1GCR    - QLogic 57810S Dual 10GE PCIe Standup Base-T CNA, Dual Port, Network Card

 

PN#  Y40PH   - Network Card, PCI-E 2.0, Qlogic 57810S Dual 10G, SFP+, Low Profile

 

 

HBA:

 

PN# P2R3R  - Controller Card, HBA330 Internal SAS HBA, Mini Monolithic, 12Gbps SAS / 6Gbps SATA, 8 Port , PCI-e Gen 3, No Cache Memory, No RAID Support, No Battery B

 

 

Please let me know if there is anything I can assist you with

Hello Manivel RR,

 

Yes you are correct. The Dell drivers will be included in the  Dell VMware customized 6.7 U3 ISO.

 

The firmware will be updated separately using a bootable IOS:

Thanks much Charles for the detailed explanation. It's very clear.
I hope, "PN# HN10N - QLogic 57810S Dual 10GE PCIe Standup Base-T CNA, Dual Port, Network Card, Low Profile" is compatible for R430 power edge servers.

I have another one final doubt.
We are going to setup VSAN All Flash vsphere 6.7 U3 cluster with 4 R430 servers.
1) Going to use Dell VMware customized 6.7 U3 ISO.
2) Dell branded SSD disks. Choosing all the SSD from VMware VSAN compatible guide.

https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=ssd&details=1&vsan_type=vsa...

3)QLogic 57810S Dual 10GE

4) HBA 330 .


Doubt:- All the controllers HBA 330,Dell branded rSSD VSAN disks, Qlogic NIC adapters firmware and drivers should be installed separately after ESXi OS 6.7 installation? Or it will come by default with Dell VMware customized 6.7 ISO?


Please suggest.


Thank you,
Manivel RR

Hi Charles,

When I was trying to order,I saw another PN for HBA 330 "Dell Part 405-AAJW"
I hope this is also will work fine for R430.
I mean,I can use any one HBA for my R430 ?

"PN#P2R3R" - Controller Card, HBA330 Internal SAS HBA, Mini Monolithic & "PN#405-AAJW"HBA330 12Gbps SAS HBA Controller (NON-RAID), MiniCard

Hello ManivelRR,

 

You will be good with that one. It is validated for the R430 server.
