  1. Today
  2. Have tested it on one of my pc's not tested on a Microserver Gen8 but seems fine on my INTEL DQ77MK I7 3770 Syba SI-PEX40058 There's a few Files at the link Marvell 9230 Firmware (Revision A1) Marvell 9230 Drivers Marvell Storage Utility Marvell Bios Setup For UEFI Shell
  3. I found this advice: Run the Access Anywhere wizard and uncheck VPN and RWA, reboot the server, Run the Access Anywhere wizard and check Remote Web Access, reboot the server, Run the Access Anywhere wizard and check VPN, all options are checked now. It didn't fix it for me completely. However, maybe it will work for you!!
  4. Hello, I'm starting to setup an OM2P open mesh in the small hotel, but when I introduced the mac into cloudtrax, the web tells me that the mac is in use. Before me, other people set up this network, but he did not come back and I do not have the password or email for cloudtrax, do someone knows what I can do
  5. Yesterday
  6. I trailed the new Eero Pro hardware but wasn't blown away compared to Orbi. However I was very impressed with their support and knowledge and follow up of their techs. Even Open Mesh has made some considerable advances to their CloudTrax. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hi, I've been using OMV on debian 8 on a HP Gen8 Microserver for quite some time now, before the Gen8 I had the same thing running on an old PC. Usually I have a strong dislike for control panels and webgui's that make you want to cry when you see how it messes up the OS it is running under or over. The reason I went for OpenMediaVault is because it offers a plugin that can handle user-based syncthing instances (as many as you want) - This has been the one problem using syncthing, that I could not separate it per user, with OMV you can, and it works just wonderful. Each user has his/her own syncthing web instance on OMV. The only gripe I have with OMV is that it stubbornly uses nginx in its own way, so whenever I want to add a site, I do it on the shell and with my own nginx config, which I've evolved over the years for many servers, but that's not how OMV wants or expects you to do it. The setup OMV uses for nginx is pretty strange, which ends up being quite annoying. As this is a server I run at home, I decided to securely equip this with syncthing, which works wonders for relatives and close friends too, they all have their secure cloud storage on my Gen8, and I use it to backup fast across my devices myself. I'd prefer to just use Debian or Ubuntu plain minimal, and then have webmin and syncthing on it instead of OMV and the syncthing plugin. I've tried that, but to get syncthing to offer separate instances per user is quite hard to accomplish, seemed to go wrong for me everytime I tried. So, if anyone knows an alternative to OMV that does not use nginx, or uses a separate root for it or something, let us know here..
  8. Correct, the CPU is not in a socket!
  9. @fury Hi mate, I just bought the Antec H600, and I was wondering what you did in terms of it's connections. Obviously the sata one is self explanatory, but did you connect the 3 pin to anything?
  10. Wasn't quite sure where to post this... if you're using standard CP encryption, 1.) how do you update your encryption using their options (not other local container apps) and 2.) does this take effect on their servers immediately or must you reupload ALL of your data again?

  11. I have a dump from a microserver gen10 thanks to schoondoggy PACKAGE VERSION[0xFFFFFFFF]: AUTOLOAD VERSION[0x00000000]: 200018 LOADER VERSION[0x0000C000]: 21001008 BIOS VERSION[0x00020000]: FIRMWARE VERSION[0x00030000]: DEVICE_ID_LIST = 9220,9230,9236,9215,9225,9235,922A,923A Jun 15 2016 10:41:50 will be trying it later
  12. Have any of you noticed that it's not the 120mm inlet fan, but the tiny fan in the PSU that's making the whiney high-pitched noise! At least for me it is. For long I used to think it was caused by 2 old harddrives I had in the 4-bay, but alas, after replacing them with new silent 6TB ones, it turns out it was the power supply all along! That's bad, since I'm good at ghetto-mods, but destroying the unit-specific PSU is not what I was aiming for. I run production material on the server (debian 8), and it can't be offline for more than a couple of hours late at night.
  13. I believe that is the latest BIOS. SPP, BIOS and firmware are the only items that require a warranty or contract. Driver downloads are free. SPP ISO images are the best way to keep a HP server up to date. Several forum users have offered the latest SPP for download.
  14. Mine was running at 107C yesterday when I had the case open. Then it powered down (of course) from the thermal protection in bios. I've put a small fan right next to it, and it's changed to:
  15. For the Gen8, you mean? If so, this should be mentioned near all links. Which is the latest SPP that does have updated fw/rom for the Gen8 Microserver?
  16. Ah, great. Thanks for that. Do you have an md5 for it somewhere? Can this iso be used to update J06 2015 System rom? Or do you need to do the upgrades in steps?
  17. Hey, thought I was the only one with that. Did you by any chance get it from ? I did. All brand new shiny and fresh, but HP didn't even recognize the SN! At the time I thought I had bought a fake or something. After chatting with HP, they also could not work with the SNr, but provided me with an ilo trial license that did work.
  18. Yes, that would be nice. I've been trying to upgrade fw on my Gen8 (currently still at J06 11/02/2015) and everytime I look for it, I get lost in HP loops about a contract. Is it me or is their website really not well equipped for downloads? I'm out of warranty already, yet my ilo 4 is licensed, so I expected to get some updates for free, but even only a year after buying it, it's gone.
  19. Rock your patio!
  20. It's been a while since i made some upgrades to the Gen8, and now that a new cpu is coming in had to mod some stuff to make the server ready I had in the past the cpu swapped to an i3-3220T that is working wonderfull for my needs, the OS was a simply XPEnology 6.1 baremetal with 4 disk, since now i'm switching this machine to ESXi and virtualize everything i bought a E3-1265L to have vt-d support but before it even arrives i wanted to change the cooler. I saw Spivak here on the forum use a Noctua low profile cooler that seems really good This it the stock NH-L9i It's a classic 75mm x 75mm LGA1155 cooler and we know that this is not gonna work on the Gen8 mainboard, that uses 75mm x 65mm pattern.. so i made the same mod that did to make it mount. The mounting brackets in the Noctua can be removed with 4 screws so with a bit of diy those can be shortened by 10mm cutting them in the middle and drilling new holes, so the cooler can be attached. And after some cutting and drilling this is the result.. on one side i made a hole bigger so that those can be fine adjusted if needed. The clearing is ok, the screws are countersunk so no they will not in the way Since the cooler is to low it has to be secured to the board from underneath, retaining the stock mounting holes/spacers but drilling thru them to remove the thread so that the provided screws can fit properly. Here it is, mounted and everything clears, contact is 100% space from the cooler to the first ram slot is more than enough, ram sticks can be installed with no problems with the cooler on. Now comes the disassebly of the Gen8, stripping it down to metal and nothing more.. i took some time to check what to cut and where, my intentions were to remove ALL the metal from the ODD space since i will never install a legacy device like that in my server, reroute and rewire all the cables and connectors and make space for a 5th hdd in that space.. so i took the disk grinder and the dremel cutting what i need, that is the result: Detailed image from the space made in the metal.. all the edges are sanded so no cable can be damaged, or my fingers.... Started to install the PSU back in his spot, figuring out where to reroute all the cables since some of them cannot go where they where before In the space i made i'm going to install an old 5.25" to 3.5" Akasa bay i used back in the days with my N40L, cutting it to my needs to fit it properly Here i will be installed the 5th WD Red i have, and all of them will connect to the mainboard sata controller in AHCI mode, now only 4 drives are in the removable bays in front but here i will put the 5th one.. plenty of space left to mount it and secure it with 4 screws! Time for some splicing and soldering, i used the two rails coming out from the PSU 1. to bring power to the whole HDD block (4 over backpanel + 1) and 2. to bring power to other two sata disks later on.. i retained the two female - male sata molex connector from PSU -> HDD bay just because i had no female sata molex spare, if i had i would have upgraded them. Time to reinstall the mainboard tray, fixing the routing and check for clearance.. cables are fixed in place so the air flow is optimal, everything is shortened so no excessive slack will take unecessary space since this is it's final configuration. In the PCI-e sloth is installed a simple ASMedia 2x sata3 card, those port will be used by a 16gb half size SSD and a 500gb HDD for ESXi and Datastore, both powered by the second sata molex rail i mentioned before.. those are held by me to show how those two drives will be placed, on the PSU side with a custom bracket just to hold them in place not permanently. This is the upper former ODD bay where the sata cables come to power and drive the 5th HDD when i migrate the baremetal to virtual setup. This is the other side, where the cooler clears everything and there is plenty of space for air. The system will be cooled by 2 Noctua fans, 1 on the top of the cooler that is 80mm i think (or 92mm, don't remember exactly), and 1 120mm SF120a in the rear, both are PWM and both will be attached to the stock connector on the mainboard using the ground-trick from MihaiT, they move soooo much air and are so much quiter than the old setup, the system now is very silent and cooler even with a 8core CPU. ESXi will be installed (it's installed now) on the SSD, datastore for the VM are on the HDD where there is XPEnology running too, those two -as i said - before are indipendent from the system on the ASMedia controller, the onboard SATA controller (the B120i in AHCI mode) will be passed through using vt-d to the XPEnology VM so everything is optimized. To XPEnology will be passed through the USB controller too, and the serial port, but this last one not permanently. Other VMs installed are pfSense (using the second nic of the Gen8 to go to the modem and the 100/20mb connection i have at home) that will be using 1 of the 8 core to handle AES-ni accelleration for an OpenVPN crypted tunnel, and other Linux VMs for a Reverse Proxy and a website hosting. And this is it, hope you liked my approach and sorry for the bad english, it's not my native language
  21. To boot from the ODD SATA port, you need to use the B120i or to use AHCI you need to setup a boot loader on USB/microSD. I have moved single drive RAID0 drives from a B120i to a PC, but I have heard of others having issues with that migration. When I have done this, I started with a drive that had been set up, formatted and running on AHCI in a different computer. Then I moved it to the MS Gen8 B120i and set it up as a single drive RAID0. I then was able to move the drive back to a PC with AHCI and read the data. If you intend to do this often, you need to understand the process of removing and returning a drive to the B120i. RAID controllers mark drives as bad when they are missing. I would recommend you practice this migration before making it your standard practice. What OS are you running?
  22. yes, disable the raid controller and set the ports to ahci.
  23. I sure like the Luma price better! Sent from my Pixel XL using RESET Forums mobile app.
  24. A few weeks ago I ordered the I5-4200U and E-I7 cases from Shenzhen Realan, the manufacturer that makes the Habey EMC-800/600 that I've seen a lot of folks use here for HTPC builds. One of the complaints about the EMC-800/600 is that they don't have enough ventilation and none on the top. The E-I5/E-I7 address this issue with more ventilation and a little bit different style, looking now a bit more like one of the Wesena ITX6 or 7 cases. The insides are basically the same and the Habey cases with the same HDD/ODD mounting plates and the same 12V 120W DC power board. The I5-4200U also gets the same 60W AC adapter as the Habey cases but the E-I7 gets a 84W AC adapter. Late last week I did my first build with the new I5-4200U case again using my bedroom HTPC platform: ASUS P8H61-I, G620, 64GB SSD, 250GB 2.5" HDD and the Gelid Slim Silence i-Plus CPU cooler. First impressions of the I5-4200U are that this is a really nice looking small case. It's nice brushed aluminum with a "diamond" edge that gives it a cool look. Building with the case is pretty easy. It starts with taking four screws off the top. To make things easier to get the motherboard in, I also took out the power board which was two screws for the board and a nut at the back of the case for the power jack. There are no sharp edges anywhere and fit is perfect. The front panel cables are long enough to reach anywhere on the motherboard and then there is plenty of room on the sides to tuck cables away. The HDD bay comes off with four screws and holds any combination of 2 x 2.5" SSD/HDD or 3.5" HDD. With a 28mm CPU cooler, the 3.5" HDD was tight against the cooler but possible if needed. The best fit was with 2 x 2.5" devices, in my case a SSD and 250GB HDD. Everything looks roomy and well ventilated. I plan to do some thermal and power testing later. I also have the E-I7. It's similar in style but 15mm taller and has an ODD slot. When I get one of those built I'll post a mini-review here too. Here are the links to the manufacturer's product pages:
  25. Interesting I got it installed and made the initial setup. Will let it couple of days to gather data and check the results [emoji848] Sent from my mobile using Tapatalk
  26. I'm trialing Eero Plus. I see little different in the app so far except for generic filtering profiles. Maybe I'll eventually get a report of all the things it's blocking. Unlikely to continue past the trial.
