Yes he does seem to be the man in the know. All that confirm my understand of SAS bandwidth and lanes, so can safely say my bottleneck doesn't lie in the link between enclosure and controller.

Thanks for this. So I suspect this confirms that I was wrong about how the link between the enclosure and controller works, in that the total bandwidth between the two over 1 SAS cable is 3Gbps, which works out at 375MB/s?

Yes, I realise they are noted differently. My confusion is most likely around the maximum bandwidth between the enclosure and controller. It is a 4 lane connection, so does that mean it has 4x 3Gbps lanes, or a total max link of 3Gbps? If the total link speed between the two is 3Gbps, that would be my bottleneck of 360MB/s

I found this question that I believe you had input on a year or two ago. I hadn't considered the possibility of a BIOS update, as HP now require a support subscription for BIOS downloads. I had a bit of a moan at them, and they provided me with the update, which I will try. Hopefully it will be a similar issue.

Comparing the HP Part with the Micron part, are they not essentially identical?

Thanks. Being in the UK, it would cost me twice as much to get the HP branded part, as it would for a standard RAM manufacturers part. I can get 16GB as 4x4GB for £19.90, but for the HP stuff, it costs about £17 for only 8GB. The DIMMs share the same specifications, and the ones I had were working. This is only a home lab, so double cost is quite a consideration.

Thanks Aron. Yes 1 and 3 are bank A, 5 and 7 bank B and so on. I tried each DIMM set seperately, but only the two of them worked, the rest showed unsupported DIMMs. I will try again just in case I was going crazy, but pretty sure I will get the same result.

Great thanks, seems pretty straightforward. Will give it a go! Thanks

I did toy with the idea of a VBscript, but is there anyway to specify the credentials to use, as the drive needs to be connected with credentials different to the current users Windows login. Thanks
