Base Knowledge

The DL80 Gen9 can be configured with 1 or 2 processors. The system board (847393-001) can handle both Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 and v4 processors. The fan setup is different for each configuration with the option of the redundant fan kit as well. On the 1 Socket configuration, you have 2 non-redundant fans, or you can have 4 redundant fans. The 2-Socket fan configuration has 4 non-redundant fans but supports 6 redundant fans. When installing the second processor for a 2-socket configuration. The 2 additional fans will be included when the second processor is selected. If you want the redundant fans set up, you’ll need the redundant fans kit (765516-B21). The fan kit includes two fans and is required to move from non-redundant to redundant fan configurations. Since each riser includes a fan as well, please refer to user-guide for exact fan requirements to enable fan redundancy.

A major change in the DL80 Gen9 rack server is the ability for the processor to be upgraded from E5-2600v3 to E5-2600v4. Up to 2 processors are supported and mixing different processor models is not supported.

To Hot-Swap or not!

The system can support up to 8 LFF Non-Hot-Plug Drives with the selection of the HP DL80 Gen9 8LFF Non-hot Plug Enablement Kit (788355-B21). If you don’t fill all the drives in the desired chassis, please fill the empty slots with the HPE Large Form Factor Hard Drive Blank Kit (666986-B21) for better airflow.

Maximum Internal Storage

  • Hot Plug LFF SAS 0TB 12 x 8TB
  • Hot Plug LFF SATA 0TB 12 x 8TB
  • Hot Plug LFF SATA SSD 08TB 12 x 3.84TB
  • Non-Hot-Plug LFF SATA 32TB 8 x 4TB

The default embedded B140i controller will operate in UEFI-only mode. For legacy support, an additional controller will be needed, and select the Legacy mode settings (758959-B22).

The DL80 supports the performance Smart Arrays P440 and P840. When installing these two Performance Smart Arrays, you will need the right cabling (779619-B21) and an HPE Smart Storage Battery (727258-B21) with a retainer clip (790501-001). Both controllers use the same cable (779619-B21), the difference is the number of Ports. The P440 has 1 port, with support for 8 SAS/SATA drives, and only needs 1 cable (779619-B21), while the P840 has two ports, with support for 16 SAS/SATA drives, and needs two cables (779619-B21).

There is also support for the Host Bust Adapter H240 which has 2 internal ports supporting 8 SAS connectors. This Smart HBA will need 2 of the Smart HBA H240 SAS Cable Kits (779622-B21) if selected.

The HPE Embedded Dual Port 361i Network Adapter comes standard on the system board. It has 2 RJ45 connectors and is powered by the Intel I350 Powerville controller.

PCI Risers

Need a PCI-e Slot? This server has plenty of them, but you need to select the correct riser for more advanced cards to be supported. Although the DL80 has up to 7 PCI-e slots, two of them are dedicated as Primary and Secondary. Both the Primary and Secondary Slots can support either a Riser Card or a Stand-up Card. In the Primary slot, you have the option of two risers to install. The GPU Riser (765518-B21) or the FL/FH Two-slot PCI Riser assembly (765515-B21). There is only one riser to install in the Secondary PCI slot, the HP DL80 Gen9 FlexibleLOM Riser Kit (765514-B21). The FlexibleLOM Riser has 2xPCI-e 3.0x8 slots. Slot 4 is a Low Profile and slot 5 is a FlexibleLOM Slot.

NOTE: To take advantage of the additional Secondary PCI slot, a second processor must be installed. All the riser option kits ship with necessary fan option kits. Please read the Tech Manual below for more details.

To install the GPU cards, you must install the GPU Riser (765518-B21) that is installed in the Primary PCI slot. The riser includes 1 FHFL slot, one fan, and the power cable required to enableGPUsupport. This system supports up to 1 GPU.

The M.2 PCI-e Card is an x8 PCI bus size and can be installed as a stand-up card or on a riser card. The M.2 Cards need the SSD SATA Cables for each M.2 SSD installed.

Let’s talk power!
The HPE 550W FIO Power Supply (730941-B21) offers Silver-certified 80 Plus power efficiency (up to 89%) with an optimized set of features for non-redundant power configurations. The HPE 900W AC 240VDC Power Input Module (775595-B21) with Power Backplane (814835-B21) can be configured to support power redundancy in ProLiant servers that offer only a single power supply bay, providing additional protection against power loss. To Make life easy, there is a kit that has (2) 900W PSU and the RPS power backplane (820792-B21).

Mixing of power supplies in the same server is not supported. All power supplies must be of the same input voltage, output rating, and efficiency rating.

Other Information
If you want the HPE 2U Security Bezel (666988-B21
) installed, then you will also need to install the Quick Release Ear FIO kit (P/N: 778109-B21). Also, the Quick Release Ears are mandatory for the 12LFF model. The alternative to the Quick Release ear kit is the Thumbscrew Ear Kit (787211-B21).
