  2. I only have this problem with the second CPU. Using the original CPU, both RAM strips work correctly. Again, this is not a problem I encounter when using the original CPU. I'll try to clean CPU and socket with isopropyl alcohol, I'll let you know as soon as it's done.
  3. The memory controller is part of the CPU. This issue occurs often when swapping CPU. You may want to remove the CPU to check for debris or thermal compound that may have gotten on the contacts. Check the socket to be sure no tabs are bent.

    Add more than 4 HDD on Gen8 Microserver

    1. I have never been able to fit a regular 3.5" drive inside the case of the Gen8. At one point I did get a 3.5" drive to fit on the SDM, but it was a Seagate 1TB drive that was slim, 20mm thick. I do not think any drive manufacture continued making a thin/slim 3.5" drive. As for 2.5" drives in 9.5mm thickness they go up to 2TB. In 2.5" and 15mm thickness they go up to 5TB, but they tend to be SMR drives. 2. Depending on the card you install you may need to add a fan. You would need to provide power from either the plug in the ODD bay or split the union above the swappable bay. 3. Yo

    Thank you! So let's say tat I'm gonna take this LSI card (https://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-LSI-SAS9212-4i4e-6G-SATA-SAS-Host-Bus-Adapter-HBA-46C8935-46C8934-46M0907/192562587005?epid=23002590603&hash=item2cd59fe57d:g:g5AAAOSwlCdbGpcb). - May I have enough room to add only 1 3.5" HDD, even with an SDM? (@Trig0r: I understood that 2 would be too much but maybe 1 would be OK?) - Should I add a fan to cool the card and/or the HDD? If so, where should I connect it? - Except the SATA cable used for data, I suppose I will need another wire for power. How can I do since I al

    LSI is the manufacturer of the chip used many HBA's and RAID cards. The chip used on a card will determine features, functions and driver support.
  8. Well I'm glad I could be of some help, I haven't heard of a issue with the actual slots before, Is the second troublesome slot 'clean' or doesn't have anything on the causing a short, again just a guess though!
  9. Already did this, like, 30 times. I don't remove RAM & processor when the PC is on lol

    Thanks. Just for my curiosity: is LSI a kind of chip? Or is it a brand? Or something else? Thanks

    Stuck on boot process after Xeon E3-1265L v2 CPU upgrade

    Restart the whole system and then try it. New processors do problems like this
  12. @steeve, looks like you got it right! Removing the second strip of RAM allows me to boot without any problem. I should have tried this earlier, especially considering the error that was indicated on the screen... However, by using only the second slot OR both RAM slots at the same time, the problems mentioned above reappear (reversing the RAM strips does not change this). I need to only use the first slot to get it work. The working configuration Moreover, the "beeps" emitted by the PC (some kind of clicking sound) when the boot process doesn't wo

    The card you linked to appears to use a Marvell controller, generally not the best choice for Linux. LSI based cards work well with Linux and a card configured as 4i4e gives you four internal and 4 external drives: https://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-LSI-SAS9212-4i4e-6G-SATA-SAS-Host-Bus-Adapter-HBA-46C8935-46C8934-46M0907/192562587005?epid=23002590603&hash=item2cd59fe57d:g:g5AAAOSwlCdbGpcb
  14. I've moved on to 2016 for some time now, but I recall when I deleted a client it gave me a choice of keeping the data around, at which time it put the machine under a different twisty like 'archived' or 'old', memory is fading... when you remove it from that twisty I would see no reason for it to keep the data any more. on the other hand any software can have bugs....

    Find what chip it has on it for a start and go from there.
  16. Something I've been wondering for a while (due to what seems to be a large 'Client Computer Backups' folder), is it possible that the server could lose track of backup files as computers are removed from the server, such that there are backup files that are abandoned in that folder and would therefore never be deleted? Would cleaning up the database take care of those extra files, should they exist? Or does the weekly cleanup task scan all files and if they're not tied to an existing Device they're deleted from the folder? Thanks for your help!

    Thanks. How can I assume that a card will work on the HP MS gen8 (like this one for example: https://www.amazon.fr/adaptateur-support-appareils-convertisseur-intégré/dp/B07TD57RGZ/ref=sr_1_5?__mk_fr_FR=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&crid=3JRVWW2F8EG85&dchild=1&keywords=contrôleur+sata&qid=1606924811&sprefix=contrôleur+sata%2Caps%2C628&sr=8-5)?

    No idea, I only used it under Server 2016, 2019 and Windows 10.

    Thanks. By the way, do you think the Supermicro card will work on Linux (I plan to use proxmox, a debian-based virtualization tool)?

    3.5" might be a push, one on top of the existing drives and one where the SDM would fit, you'd be better off looking at 2.5" drives. I didn't need cooling on the Supermicro card, its a load cooler than the HP unit.

    Add more than 4 HDD on Gen8 Microserver

    Thanks again for your sharing your experience I think I'm gonna use a refurbished HBA (budget: ~ 25€), maybe the one you recommended earlier (Supermicro AOC-SASLP-MV8). Do you know if there is enough room in the HP MS Gen8 to add 2 more 3.5" HDD (+ the fan to cool the card)? I was planning to use the SDM but: - I'm not sure 2 3.5" HDD can fit in it - I think it is sold-out Thanks

    Hard Drives -- so many choices

    Good point on the SMR issue! Hadn't thought much about Hitachi or Toshiba -- will give them another look. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to go down the route of used/refurbished drives. Thanks!!

    iLO Remote Console with graphics card added

    Hello, taking advantage of what they talk about ILO, there is some configuration so that in the same network port you can have the IP address to navigate and take control of ILO so as not to have 2 network cables connected
  24. I would remove one stick of RAM and try again, then try the other, it might be the new CPU doesn't like the existing RAM. Its only a guess though, sorry can't be more help.

    I had the 4 drives in the bays connected to my addon card and then 2x SSD's connected to the onboard on an SDM for OS and VM storage, didnt require any additional cooling, however at one point I did have a P222 (I think it was) that got a bit warm so I had a small fan blowing over the heatsink to keep the card itself cool, the drives themselves don't really need it.

    Thanks for your feedback! How much HDDs do you connect to it and how do you cool down the whole stuff?
