Network Controller
Four (4) embedded Gigabit Ethernet network adapter ports, plus (1) additional management
network adapter port:
One (1) embedded NC326i Dual Port Gigabit Server Adapter
Two (2) embedded NC373i Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapters with TCP/IP offload
engine for Microsoft Windows, iSCSI boot, and optional accelerated iSCSI
One (1) additional embedded 10/100 network adapter dedicated to iLO 2 management
NOTE: The Gigabit Ethernet adapters transmit from the server at 2000 Mbps, full duplex per port.
However, within a Linux environment, the speed can be reduced or "throttled" using a feature
available within the Linux operating system; see the white paper at:
http://h71028.www7.hp.com/ERC/downloads/4AA1-5513ENW.pdf for more information.
Once the adapter signal reaches the interconnect within the blade enclosure and communicates
outside the blade enclosure to the LAN, the blade interconnect uplink types and settings
determine the cable media, speed, duplex mode, and auto negotiation mode. Interconnects are
available with Ethernet uplinks supporting 10/100/1000T, 10/100/1000 SFP, 1000 SX fiber, and
10Gb speeds.
Multifunction
Networking
The embedded multifunction NC373i combines standard Gigabit Ethernet networking, TCP/IP
offload engine (TOE) for Microsoft Windows, iSCSI boot, and optional accelerated iSCSI into a
single adapter.
TOE moves the processing of data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to the
network card, freeing CPU cycles for other activities. With TOE, network communications
are improved, and server efficiency is increased. The NC373i offers TOE for Microsoft®
Windows environments.
The iSCSI boot allows the BL480c to boot from a remote operating system (OS) image
located on a storage area network (SAN). The BL480c uses an iSCSI firmware image
(iSCSI boot option ROM) making the remote disk drive appear as a local, bootable C: drive.
The BL480c is configured to connect to and boot from the iSCSI target disk on the network
and download the OS image from the iSCSI target disk. The iSCSI boot option ROM is
supplied by HP at no cost. The additional cost and mezzanine slot usage of an add-in iSCSI
HBA card is not required. Additionally, the HP iSCSI boot solution includes scripts to
significantly simplify the installation process.

Storage Controller
The server includes an integrated Smart Array P400i Controller. The P400i is an x8 PCI Express
serial attached SCSI (SAS) v1.0 embedded RAID controller and provides server performance and
reliability through its support of advanced SCSI technology and RAID capabilities. The P400i
includes 256MB of 40-bit ECC protected cache and supports RAID levels 0 (striping), 1
(mirroring), and 5 (distributed data guarding).
The controller supports both SAS and SATA hard drives letting you deploy drive technology as
needed to fit your computing environment. The sever provides four hot-plug drive bays for up to
1.2TB of SAS and 1.0TB of SATA storage.
Providing high availability data cache retention, the Smart Array P400i supports two battery
backed write cache (BBWC) options:
BBWC for the existing 256GB cache.
Upgrade to 72-bit 512MB ECC protected cache with BBWC.
If additional SAS or SATA drives are desired, the server supports the StorageWorks SB40c
Storage Blade. For additional information, see:
