Anyone know how to get a P222 license key?

Fri Jul 21, 2017 3:38 am

I have tried to contact HP and can't get a call back or email. My guess is they don't do them anymore. The issue is the P222 raid card can't do anything without the key.

Thanks for any tips or help.

HP really screwed the pooch with the way they only provide firmware updates to customers with active support contracts.

Is it the add-in card variant of the P222? Just ditch it for a generic LSI SAS card instead. HP nailed their own door up when it comes to SMB server hardware.

I think this might help you, plus their support for P222 is a tough one now AFAIK

I have talked to two chat people three emails and been on hold for over 20 minutes now. insane what you have to do just have raid 5 run on a hp p222 card.

I head if I update the firmware it doesn't need the key anymore. Anyone know how to update the p222 raid card without an OS? Maybe download the driver to a USB or disk and boot from it?

They said it has to be in warranty to get a key. So my only hope is updating the firmware which might stop it from needing a key or use another card.
