    Update on My Gen 8

    Its mainly a media server it doesnt matter what drive they are on plex knows where they are this way only the drive in use gets spun up instead of a whole array for a single file e.g. to save power It all closed up the fans are normally at something like 11% but its 32°C atm here so the fan is at 40% The drives are a tad warm but they should spin down soon i rebooted it about 40 mins ago and its on a 60 min spindown window edit actually the hottest drives are in the sas enclosure

    Do you keep the server ‘open’ like that without casing? I would imagine it would get quite toasty even with the extra fans, if closed…

    Still Using WHS 2011?

    Yeah, I gave up on using WHS 2011 on the old RevoCenter. I don't know enough about networking to lock 'er down tight. I'm going to add another external box with 4 drives to my N40L which is running Windows 10 and do the backups there. Putting the RevoCenter (new other than installing 10 years of Windows Updates) on eBay/Kijiji/FB Marketplace. I'll take a look at FreeNas and OpenMediaVault - but assuming they are more of a NAS solution only? I currently have DrivePool & Scanner setup on N40L. Really liking how that's working.

    Why do you keep all your drives separated like that?

    Whats the last SPP for the Gen8?

    I believe you can only download this with the registration (valid support subscription/entitlement or whatever they call it), but the individual updates can be downloaded without it. Check the HPE support site…

    SettIng up FTP?

    Unable to open port 21 for FTP. install FTP Server Windows 10 Setup: I have a remote location running a web cam server. I had an old homebrew AMD64 PC running Windows 7 that I had set up and everything worked well. The web server used nginx and I had five cameras on the web site page. I had Filezilla FTP Server running and was able to FTP the server to upload and download files from a couple of off site Pcs. (Linux Ubuntu desktop with Fillzilla Client and a Windows 8 laptop with Core FTP LE Client) A couple of weeks ago we had a heavy wet spring snow storm which caused massive power outages. Three days later with power restored I booted the server and it went to boot repair. Long story short, the HDD was flaky and dying. So I bought a Optiplex 2070 and began rebuilding the server. The server is in a remote location with cable ISP to MODEM, cat5 to a Linksys EA2700 running DD-WRT, and cat5 to the server. The server is a Dell Optiplex 7020 running a fresh load of Windows 7 Pro and updates. (Thanks to Windows Seven on how to do the updates). Web software is nginx 1.17.10 and is running well. I can use Remote Desktop to connect to the server from my Ubuntu desktop and the Windows 8 laptop. The router has Port Forward set for the web server, Remote Desktop, and a web cam wired through a router port. Here is the problem: I am unable to connect to the server using FTP. I have scoured the net for three days trying to find out why I can not connect with no luck. I have tried: Forwarded router ports 21, 990, 50000 – 51000. FTP with and without TLS. Set access through Windows firewall – no luck. Disabled Windows firewall – no luck. Verified clients OK by FTP to other sites. Verified FTP and Filezilla are enabled in Widows firewall advanced settings. Checked open ports with “Canyouseeme.org”, ports show open for Web and Desktop, port 21 FAILS. Deleted and reinstalled Flezilla. Tried different FTP and loaded Quick&EasyFTP. Example of Client error: note – port xxx21 is forwarded to port 21 on the server. Resolving xxxxxx.xxxxxx.com... Connect socket #1172 to xxx.xxx.xxx.169, port xxx21... Can't establish connection --> xxxxxx.xxxxxx.com:xxx21 @ Wed May 06 14:04:56 2020 (0-5) Connection Failed Tried telnet to the server on port 21 and it also fails. Is there something simple I overlooked? Any help would be appreciated.

    Still Using WHS 2011?

    to be fair, most of us have moved on from WHS2011 many years ago - so its sort of a dead topic around here I think if you know what you are doing and set it up well - you could still use WHS as an internal server safely This is more of a question on your network/router setup and making sure that the WHS2011 box is truly protected from the dark side of the web going forward, have you considered switching over to an alternative like FreeNas or openmediavault ? both are free and kept reasonably up to date. there is also a lot of love on this forum for the unraid server , which does cost a small amount for home use

    Sans Digital Power Supply Issues

    I Powered down my Sans Digital TowerRAID TR4X+B 4 Bay SAS Enclosure earlier as i was adding some drives to the Microserver Gen8 when i was finished i turned the TR4X+B back on to nothing at first i presumed the switch on the back was dodgy but its fine anyway i have found a temp workaround to power it back up Power it on for a few seconds (to nothing) then turn the power switch off on the back around 10 seconds after turning the power switch off the power lights will come on and fan will spin for around 1/3 of a second the moment it lights up switch the power switch back to on and it will stay powered up would love to know if anyone ever fixed the psu as at some point i am going to have to fix it the is the first time its been powered off in around 4 years..

    Microserver Gen8 chassis fan upgrade.

    what replacement fan you are using. what I understood min fan speed need to be above 900RPM if not there will be active fault and outside LED will not be blue but red.

    HPE MS gen8 as router

    I plan to use HPE as router with pfsense as VM on Proxmox https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/recipes/virtualize-proxmox-ve.htmlhttps://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/recipes/virtualize-proxmox-ve.html it require to have 3 LAN ports, HPE have 2xLAN + ILO4, is there a way to use ILO 1Gb as LAN3? what are recommended 4xLAN 1Gb card for HPE MS gen8? will HP NC365T work?
  16. And does anyone have a copy My little old Gen8 with Win2012R2 has chugged away for years happily doing its thing, figure Im probably long overdue to chuck some updates on there. Cheers Fin.

    HP Proliant ML350p G8 Watercooling!

    Hello All, I've also recently purchased an ml350p. My background is electrical industrial instrumentation and control; not really a PC guy... yet. I'm working on it lol. My first job was getting my GPU to work. Struggled to find consensus or a well explained pinout with regards to using consumer GPU cards in these machines. I couldn't find the the OEM cable anywhere. It took me some time to get it working. My issue turned out to be power related. So, for other noobs getting scared off doing this like I almost was, here's what I have confirmed, using a Fluke 789: (for reference) Normal PCIe8 pinout: Pins 1,2,3 are +12V Pins 5,7,8 are 0V (GND) Pin 4 (Sense 8 pin plug) 0V (GND) Pin 6 (Sense 6 pin plug) 0V (GND) (what I found) HP PCIe Pinout (when compared to the above, using the same pin numbers) Pins 1,2,3,4 are +12V Pins 5,7,8 are 0V (GND) Pin 6 (Sense) 0V (GND) I have found references on reddit and other forums indicating that Pin 3 in unused, and its position is shifted to Pin 4. My tests show it at 12V, I'm not sure if there are some smarts in the machine that can switch this pin? Maybe mine is not standard? Consensus is that Pins 1-4 should be at 12V and Pins 5-8 at 0V or GND. I can confirm that my 6GB GTX Titan works with this mod. I modified a standard PCIe 8 to 8+6 cable by leaving the GPU side as per normal and changing the mobo side to what HP expects. I had to make a custom cable since the mine was not long enough. So I only ended up using the plugs really, I tried to remove as much of the original cable as possible, it seemed like sh** cable. Since I work in the industrial sector I used what I had access to, which was 1mm marine grade flex https://www.firstflex.co.nz/product/mst001-0/ I made it 450mm long and it was a comfortable fit. If I were to make it again, I would increase the length to 500mm for looming purposes. Next I will be working of fans. Thing sounds like an aircraft; my wife was suitably unimpressed when i brought it inside. I would like to make use of the original connectors, fan cage etc, if I can, and modify as little as possible. Maybe make a custom PCB to invert the PWM and add some current limiting for ordinary fans. If i got into full mod mode, I have a ABB commander 350 in the garage somewhere, might look cool mounted inside the unused drive bay. I have also started soldering up a custom water-block from some busbar plate I have around the place, I'll use Swagelok fittings and 1/2" Teflon tube. MPa rated, so should be fine for this pressure range ha ha. Still not figured out how to mount everything yet. Got a million other projects on so we'll see how long it takes me to get round to finishing this one. StretchNZ if you're about mate, would be nice to chat about your machine. I live in Auckland. -Jim
  18. Hello, Some time have past... after some changes i think i run into a wall... with 10GB and proxmox using ceph in ssd, even in tray2 (because of sata 3) i have a lot of io delay in ceph...

    HP Proliant ML350p G8 Watercooling!

    Hello all, I’m just wondering how you’re all getting on with your cooling modifications… I picked up an ML350p recently and as you’re all well aware it is much too loud for home use. I have mine in the loft and can hear those fans from a room or two away. I’ve ordered a pair of NH-U9DX i4 coolers and I figure I’ll just find a 12V rail and run them at 100% in the short term. Longer term I’m looking to add a couple of intake & exhaust fans and a controller of some description. Any advice or progress reports would be much appreciated. Thanks

    App Based Firewalls for NAS's

    looks good but after the last three years of ransomware and other security issues, I would be very leery of trusting them for a router dont get me wrong, I love qnap hardware,, best value for an intel based NAS. Works solidly as a file and media server. they tried to open up the devices and did a half assed job , especially to us noobs in the home market also, only supports 2 x 2.5" drives, which is some low by the standard build on this forum thats what they look like, baby blue soft matte finish

    App Based Firewalls for NAS's

    Great video on Qufirewall from our old friend Mike Faucher, may be useful in other platforms as well e.i. why would you enable a firewall on your NAS Good description of what it is and how to to set up https://youtu.be/CydCrgw7TGM I met Mike Faucher at a couple of the legendary homeserver show meetups. I think his demos caused me to go with a qnap nas Good guy. He has dry, but concise , clear videos. Lots of content on qnap I was very disappointed in qufirewall, but it's clear that part of the problem was how i set it up, still lousy documentation and launch by QNAP Will try it again after its updated this month
  26. Hey, i have an Proliant gen8 microserver and i want to connect to ILO, i just have an ZOTAC mini pc with running windows and parrotOS(linux) i dont own a own router, im just in with wifi in a public network, i dont get a screen if i turn my proliant gen8 microserver on, the ilo lamp under the black mat is blinking sometimes red. How can i access to the ilo with direct lan cable connection? i mean i put lan cable into the server and the ZOTAC mini-pc and turn the server on, how can i access ilo then?

    Still Using WHS 2011?

    So if I want to setup an old Acer Revocenter (RC111) Home Server running WHS 2011 - but only as an "internal" (in-house use) backup server. Can I simply block ALL incoming connections in the firewall to lock it down from any external sources finding their way into the server? I've not messed around with Windows Firewall much in the past other than those standard popups that ask if I want to let a program have access. My concern is the lack of security updates...pretty sure those are a done deal for WHS 2011 at this point. So theoretically, there's nothing to update in Windows Update moving forward for WHS 2011? And if blocking ALL connections is the way to protect the Home Server - any other specifics I need to know/do? And/or are there other additional ways to do this/enhance this? Basically I'd have this WHS box acting as a backup target for the critical stuff on my main server. I also have several friends still rocking the same RC111 RevoCenter servers that aren't interested in upgrading the hardware - so if I can lock their servers down to keep their home network's safe - that would be good. Like I said, not a very knowledgeable firewall guy and have been googling how to lock a PC down - but haven't come across many articles specific to this need. Cheers!
