> FreeNAS on HP ML10 v2

Aug 2, 2017
Hi all,
I'd please like to know how many of you succesfully run FreeNAS on the HP ML10 v2 server.

What I'm trying to do is building a cheap freenas box (with 8GB RAM) to use for replication of my main freenas machine. So definitely investigating if the RAID controller works when set as AHCI. I heard stories that the settings make the fan spin at full speed and also I just found out that it "supports up to 6.0Gb/s SATA. (SATA port 0/1 support 6Gb/s and SATA port 2/3 support 3Gb/s)". It's stated here on the Specs sheet: HPE ProLiant ML10 v2 Server (QuickSpecs/c04567801.pdf)
Is this spec it going to affect performace much if 4 drives are used?
And please where in case the 5th and 6th are going to be conncected? Is it an extra HBA needed?

Many thanks for suggestions!
