I have a whole bunch of these (18+) currently running. The DL180 G6 has 2x NIC ports both of which we are using, and one 16x PCI-e slot on a riser, in our case, occupied by a RAID card (mostly P410s).
This means all ports/slots for expansion are occupied. Dead stop.
We want to, with these machines, add two more NIC ports, HP or Intel, matters not. The ports are for LAN traffic.
Anyone have any ideas? Solved this for themselves? I thought that there was a compatible left hand DL380 riser card that did x16 PCIe to dual x8 PCIe - but no luck. Also looked at UIO cards, but power is an issue.
I understand HP has no direct solution, I'm looking for clever.
