    iLO 2.78 available

    iLO4 v.2.78 available. HPE requires users update to this version immediately. https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/km/product/5390291/Product#t=DriversandSoftware&sort=%40hpescuniversaldate descending&layout=table&numberOfResults=25
  3. Found the solution : https://serverfault.com/a/750083/662346 ESXi has to be installed on a MBR partition, not the GPT default one.
  4. Never mind. I installed one anyway and it seems to work fine.
  5. I also tried to update the BIOS to J06 04/04/2019 but no luck there either. I'm really stuck and it's probably something idiotic I've overlooked...🙃
  6. I also tried to flash the custom-HP ESXI image iso (6.5U3) using the Rufus tool (Windows) but it won't boot. It does boot the installer from the USB stick but once ESXI is installed on that stick, it won't work, "no active partition found". Is there some specific partition config to use for bootable drives on the Gen8?
  7. In usage, do these adapters use a ton of CPU resources when you're hammering them with data? I know I saw some narrative about it before but I can't find it anymore. This server has only one embedded gigabit port and is out of PCIe slots. However, it does have an abundance of USB3.0 Type-A ports. I'll probably need one or two such adapters to add dedicated NICs for a couple of VMs.
  8. sorry to hear you have to put up with such a silo at work. good luck!

Surface Laptop 2 - $699 Microsoft 13.5" Surface Laptop 2, International Keyboard, 201ppI PixelSense Touchscreen, Intel Core i7-8650U Quad-Core, 256GB Solid State Drive, 8GB RAM, 802.11ac, Bluetooth, Win10H - Black One small catch, it's an international/French keyboard. Check the photos for the keyboard picture.

  11. It seems the microSD was indeed faulty (I can't have it detected by anything, even gparted). So I tried a fresh install of ESXI 6.5U3 on a usb stick but same result, it doesn't find an "active partition". Is there perhaps some option to enable in the BIOS to make it work ?
  12. Hi @nrf, no I haven't discussed this with the system design team. Are you familiar with Gene Kim and his book, The Unicorn Project? Early in the book he discusses "the Square", which describes how communication in siloed work environments. That's the environment under which I work. I cannot talk to the system design team. I must pass a request up my command chain at least two, maybe three levels up, where it then can be talked from my bureau chief to the Operations bureau chief, where it will then descend the command chain until it gets to the right people. Then communication comes back to me

    RESET is back!

    Reset has been reset! Good. Required frequency? Whenever there is something useful to discuss. Hear you on retention of obsolete gear. The pandemic has stimulated giveaway of a my old workstation and laptop to schools. Tidied the garage this Spring too ... so only a few bits and pieces left for the tip. Must open that book on decluttering soon ;-) In tune with the 'allocate a device to a specific function' vibe too. Cheap HP Microservers for storing data only, 2nd hand tablets for consoles and streamers, ..., nice new powerful laptop and workstation for the real work/pl
  14. the point of having a back-end database is to have it do the hard work itself and deliver a more compact set of records, not joining locally. if during the process there is lots of back-and-forth communication beyond the acks, changes in latency for that request/response can hurt far more than the raw transfer of the data. if the end architecture of this application requires users to be doing this 40k record extract regularly I would suggest it is not a very efficient approach. have you tried discussing this with your system design team? and as usual hard-wired is always better tha
  15. At this point I am still working from home (WFH) and loving it. 😁 However, I do have some Internet speed issues I'd like help trying to figure out what's happening; what slowing it down. Generally speaking, it isn't slowing down for everything. In fact, overall, I'd say this is really good. About 2 years ago I switched from DSL to cable modem access with Sparklight, formerly Cable-ONE. (If you've never heard of them, don't worry about that. I'd never heard of them until we decided to ditch DSL.) I only have Internet with Sparklight. Normally my speeds are 220 to 230 Mb
  16. Anyone tried this? I was thinking of using the onboard controller for mass storage (4 x 16TB drives), and then pop in an add-in PCI-E card for NVME SSDs for plotting, with a SATA SSD still being used as the boot drive. I know you can't boot from the NVME on this server, that's why I would keep the SATA SSD in place, as a boot-only drive. Just first pass on my thought process, wanted to get feedback.
  17. I found an additional HowTo: https://zhuanlan.zhihu.com/p/54503225 In any case I would remove the four elevated pillars of the original heat sink. This gives additional room above the CPU. Other mods on the original motherboard tray are not necessary.
  18. My pics in my post above are not displayed in my google browser. Don't know why. Have them attached here with google browser. Hope this will work now.

    Nice to hear from you. I look forward to the next two and hopefully more!
  20. Point the google browser (will automatic translate) to this links: https://www.chiphell.com/thread-1181782-1-1.html https://post.smzdm.com/p/aek84e34/
  21. That's an interesting little mod, anyone done a proper review on it?
  22. Good afternoon folks! I have a question I was wondering if someone would know about. I have a Microserver Gen 8 with Vmware ESXI 7 currently installed on the MicroSD with AHCI enabled instead of RAID mode (dont find anything usefull in raid mode in my current setup other than booting from ODD, which I can just use as another Datastore instead). With that context being said, Im trying to enable the Agentless Management Service from the ILO with the drivers on the Vmware ESXI 7, but unfortunetly after installing and trying to start the service with: /etc/init.d

    RESET is back!

    So great to hear the familiar voices again! And quite an interesting talk about how you went from a pretty PC-centric setup to a Mac. I didn't know that you were that invested in the Apple platform. I actually did the opposite I sold my MBP 13" in favor of a Surface Laptop 3 (black edition, by the way, based on your purchase...) as I felt I was missing all the "fun" in the Windows space and the MacOS felt a little abandoned (or stale) with all the focus being on the mobile devices. Maybe that'll change now with the whole new M1 platform and all. It loo

    RESET is back!

    finally showed up. it was interesting to listen to the previous episode when the pandemic was just getting going.
  25. You can use the HP MicroServer Gen8 Chassis Retrofit ITX Kit. With this kit a standard ITX-Board will fit: Drawback: It is only available in a chinese shop: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=542897442387 I bought it via superbuy.com I have replaced the Powersupply from Delta with an FlexGURU 300W from FSP (Fortron). You can make your own harness.
