    HPE custom ESX 7 gen8 sl230

    Anyone know of a custom image for the gen8, sl230s blades? I was able to get up to 6.7 but cannot find an update path to 7. On the HP site, it is mentioned that 6.7 is not supported but obviously, that doesn't mean it won't run so maybe someone here knows of a version that will. Thanks.

    Consumer SDD in a DL380 Gen8 w/ P420i Controller?

    My apologies if this is the wrong forum. I wasn't sure about the best place to post this. I have a DL380 Gen8 in my homelab with a P420i RAID controller minus the cache module. It currently has 8x SFF SAS disks. I'm seeing conflicting advice on whether or not I can stick consumer SATA disks...
