If you do have support, the 1st thing they'll ask is whether your firmware is up to date.

So, check that out.

Hello Talk
  Any one out there using Hp DL165G5 servers. I have a about 10 now and a number of the exhibit an odd issue. With freebsd , under i/o load the system hangs for 6 to 10 seconds every 30 seconds or so , and  processes are stuck in state getblk or biord . I was thinking it could be a disk or sata controller issue so I swapped them both out sata for a p400 sas card and swapped drives a few times sas,sata mdl dual port single port  and no change .   So. Installed 8.0 7.2 7.3 all have the same issue. I then tried CentOS 5.1 and 5.4 and  similar issues popped up. Formatting a 1T drive took over 45min .  Any one have any ideas on what's toast ?  What would a process stuck in getblk or biord refer to ?
