Not sure about the DL380G2, but I have a couple of ML370's that are older
nastier versions that run fine. The only problem is on reboot, it needs you
to press a key to start up - it won't just start. There is a way of
disabling that, but the software lives in the last sector on the first disk
or something, and we wiped that. They're a bit quirky, but I suspect the
DL380G2s should be fine. Don't take my entire word for it though... :-)
