HP ML10 V2 - Server 2016 Hyper-V boot suck.

7 posts in this topic

Afternoon all.

 

I've recently come into an issue that I'm starting to look at but just in case anyone else has had the same issue or something close.

 

 

Installing Server 2016 (Ether Std or DC) to the physical machine goes ok but the server hangs on boot after the restart of the role install.

 

If you don't select a NIC while installing the role, the server will reboot, finish the setup, reboot again and then get stuck.

If you do select a NIC while installing the role, the server will reboot and get stuck.

 

Anyone else had any issues?

Have you updated all BIOS and firmware?

If you have a NIC you can put in the server, try it and turn off the internal ports.

Yup.

 

Latest firmware and drivers for everything (HP SPP and manual check against the site for version numbers)

Not sure I can disable the onboard in the bios as the shared Ilo4 port but I'll take a look. 

 

 

I can get into safe mode with or without networking which removes. I still think it's something to so with the virtual networking of the Hyper-V role of 2016 (it used to be 2012r2 which works) as the services don't start in safe mode but it gets stuck before windows starts recording events grr.

 

 

I'm downloading a retail copy (MSDN) of Hyper-V server 2016 (released 10/12/2016) to give that shot.

Slight update. 

 

Hyper-V server did the same thing, installed just fine rebooted and died. (I say died, the spinning wheel still span around but nothing happens)

 

I'm now 100% sure that it's something Virtualization with 2016 (2012R2 works just fine) but it gives me a solid direction.

 

 

 

According to this.

http://windowsitpro.com/hyper-v/hyper-v-requirements-windows-server-2016

 

One of the Hyper-V under 2016 base requirements is now SLAT rather than a 'requirement for under a condition' under 2012R2.

 

However the CPU I'm using Intel® Xeon® CPU E3-1241 v3 and the Ml10 V2 both support it. 

 

So taking a look at the requirements for it.

The server works just fine without the Hyper-V role so one reinstall later :)

Try disabling vt-d before enabling hyper-v role.

ML310e gen8 has known issue with 2016 hyper-v, can be the same thing.

Will do. Thanks!

How'd you go with this one?

 

I have a stock ML10V2 (Pentium G3240 model) running the Hyper-V role on Server 2016 Nano without any issues.

 

But, this CPU doesn't support VT-d - I'm about to upgrade to a Xeon and an Intel i350 NIC and was keen to test SR-IOV - so any light you can shed on this one would be appreciated :-)

 

Cheers.
