HP Microserver N40l working out of box (ESXi 5.0)
the new HP Microserver N40l is working out of the box. Only the Raid is not funktional, because it is not a real Hardware-Raidcontroler (Fake-Raid). Each disk ist seen separately.
The N40l is an upgrade from the N36l with only a new CPU (Turion II 1,5 GHz), 2 GB Ram (N36l = 1 GB) and a 250Gb HDD (N36l = 160GB).
It comes with a eSATA Port, but i didn't use it at this time, so i can't report if it is working with ESXi 5.0.
The N40l supports ECC RAM (the original 2GB RAM Modul is with ECC).
Boot from USB from the internal USB Soket works fine
