    HP Microserver view raid info from 2008r2 os

    Hi, I seem to be going round and round. I would like to be able to view and config the raid info for a HP Microserver in 2008r2 os. I have setup the raid using the bios raid setup system but would like some control/info from the OS. I have found a few sites saying that I need to use AMD software but all the links take me to a log on page at AMD.

    http://wwwd.amd.com/AMD/SReleaseF.ns...s%AEServer2008

    Can someone point me in the right direction.

    the link on hp will get you to the right part of amd's website basically it installs something that allows you to manage the raid via a web page. Be careful though somew options on the web version dont work right. For instance when i first got mine i though oh good raid 10 copied data to it and rebooted it dumped the array raid 10 only works till you reboot

    It does sound like you need a RAID SATA driver + built in utility from Windows. That's how Intel do it, so I suspect AMD will be the same.

    Just installed the driver from AMD but still do not get the RAIDXpert software like the image above. This is doing my head in.

    ok did a search in AMD website and found RaidXpert software. Only issue is they do not do a server 2008r2 version, only Win8, Win7 and xp. I went for the Win7 but am a bit concerned I am using the correct software.

    If it's the Win 7 x64 version, you should be absolutely fine. 2008 R2 and 7 are essentially the same OS at the core.

    Odd but after replacing the default 2008r2 drivers with the HP / AMD drivers the read / write speed has fallen. I am not able to stream films without it jumping.
