    Damn that sucks about the fishing equip, worst I have done is won an auction for a meat slicer, thought it was a little one, just enough for me to do the homemade salami, prosciutto etc, went to pick it up, nope, its a 100Kg behemoth like the large supermarket chains use. at least that was only $50 though

    Doubt about cloning a RAID 1

    Yes, it has expanded and occupied the total amount of the disc, with the Acronis software. Previously I had tested with the Clonezilla, and it maintained the same dimension as the original disk, without reallocating the new one. Yes, the b140i controller does not indicate any type of error, so I think everything is working fine. Thank you!

    Doubt about cloning a RAID 1

    The full disk cloning must have picked up all the data and metadata needed. Is the entire capacity of the Samsung drives available? If SSA is showing that the two Samsungs are in a healthy RAID1 you should be fine.

    Doubt about cloning a RAID 1

    Hi. Yes, I want to replace the two Toshiba discs with the two Samsung discs. I will explain what I have done, to see if in the future I can have problems or not. In the end I have cloned with the Acronis software the Toshiba disk 1, with the Samsung disk 1. Then I did the same with the Toshiba 2 disc and the Samsung 2 disc. Once everything has been done, I have restarted the server, and within the SSA I have indicated that it started from Samsung raid 1, and it worked perfectly without any problem. I have done checks of copies between different logical volumes, and the truth is that it is very satisfactory. After returning to restart the server to make sure that there was no problem, and it seems that everything works fine. Do you think that the integrated b140i software controller is correctly performing its job of replicating all the information on both disks at the same time? Thank you!

    Doubt about cloning a RAID 1

    In general, cloning does not work with drives that are running with a RAID controller. The cloning software does not pickup the metadata. This varies for controller brands. I assume you are trying to replace both Toshiba disks with the Samsung disks?

    Doubt about cloning a RAID 1

    Hello good afternoon. I have an HP ML110 G9 server where I have an Integrated RAID controller b140i, which performs a software RAID. In the photo, what is selected in green are two RAID 1, and currently Toshiba disks are those with the operating system, and wanted to clone them to Samsung disks. The Acronis 2015 software does not see the logical volumes, and it only lets me select a Toshiba physical disk to be able to perform the cloning, and then only a Samsung disk. My question is whether cloning can be done by choosing only one disk of each logical volume (I have not tried to start it for security, so I do not know if it's really going to leave me) Thank you! (The volume that is seen in red, is a hardware raid controller, it has nothing to do with my doubts) PHOTO ACRONIS

    Oh dear

    I have no idea at the minute, need to look at the drive requirements. I'll keep my eye out for a rack for it and go from there.. My existing server is on an old i7-3770s with 32Gb RAM and 25Tb of storage, no idea at all.... Could be worse, mate of mine won a bet, got £700, then spent it on some golf clubs, at least he plays golf, another mate spent £300 on a load of sea fishing equipment, he doesnt fish and we live in the middle of the country...

    Thanks my friend !
  11. I have the basic GT1610T processor. I've just opened the task manager and checked it, nothing special.

    How do you dim or hide your modem's lights?

    Interesting product, I would hate to put black on everything though, I wonder if those semi-opaque stickers would work on white/pale devices

    Oh dear

    It is getting chilly out. Nice way to heat your home.
  15. Last week
  16. Just finished the installation based on your advice. Works like charm! Now i have to solve the CPU usage problem. It says there's 0% CPU usage, no matter what i'm doing. Is there any recommended HP software for install? PS. It's works with Rufus too. The key was the MBR partition and the BIOS mode option.

    Oh dear

    So, you know when you accidentally buy things you really dont need... Like a DL360 with 52Gb RAM and a pair of E5-2448's in it, Quad Gb NIC and P420i... No idea why I bought it lol, might stick it up in the loft and have a bit of a VMware lab going on...
  18. The 2TB limit is just for the drive/partition you are booting from. Data drives/partitions can be as big as you want. I like to keep the OS seperate from the data, so I tend to load the OS on a SSD and keep the data on other drives/partitions/RAID.
  19. Thanks! I knew about the BIOS limits, but for ex. if I want to create a bigger raid than 2TB, is it not possible because of that? Even with Win server? Woah. Somehow I've never connected these two facts together.
  20. 2TB should be fine. The Gen8 is not UEFI so Windows has a 2TB boot drive limit. I have installed Windows 10 on the MS Gen8 many times, but I do not use iLo or IP. I make a bootable USB install image using the Windows Media Creation tool, set the BIOS to AHCI, it should boot and install without needing any special drivers. If I were you I would try that route instead of iLo.
  21. 2 TB. But i've tried with a 1 TB Toshiba hdd, with the same result. Note: I wanted to test this with esxi, and it was successfull. I was able to choose the destination drive. So I have problem with the windows scenario only. The installer was tested on PC before.
  22. I've installed the SPP from this forum (release date: oct 2016). I guess that's updated the necessary drivers too. Even the bios, this is for sure. I have the standard microserver gen8. I have 2 WD purple and thats all. No external cards, no sd card etc. See on attached printscreen:(ignore the IP version)
  23. Have you updated BIOS and firmware? What do you have installed in the server, drives, cards?
  24. Greetings! I've looked up a lot of topics about this, but i've always find the half of the answers to my questions. I guess it's an unusual situation this time... I would like to install windows 10 to my server in AHCI mode but without intelligent provisioning (it's died while upgrading it so there is no option to use it, that's another topic). I'm able to boot the windows installer from iLO remote console but it cannot find the hdd driver. I've tried with few drivers, but no luck. When the raid controller is the selected controller (the raid would be perfect too), the installer doesn't boot up. Parameters/facts: -AHCI mode on( the installer is boots up in this mode only) - No intelligent provisioning -HP smart array won't load either -2 hdd Questions: -This concept is possible? -If yes, the raid is possible without IP and HP smart array? -Is this will be easier with VMware esxi? Thanks in advance!
  25. Thanks ShadowPeo. Appreciate the feedback. I was fortunate to get 6 years of life out of 8x 3 TB WD Reds given they’re rated for closer to 3 years. It’s possible I had to replace a couple of drives in between, but WD RMA support worked well. Seagate IWs are quite economical for their large 10 Tb HDDs. Definitely considering them as I retire my RAID config and move more to traditional drives in my home server. Not to mention, by using 6 fewer HDDs and no RAID card, I expect my power consumption and heat to decrease as well.

    How do you dim or hide your modem's lights?

    I use these lightdim stickers for devices with lights I don't want to block, but just want to dim. The wife loves it for the various lights in the bedroom. It should help if you don't want to fully black out the lights. http://www.lightdims.com/
