    ODD booting with AHCI and OS Upgrading

    I managed to install the XEON and the SSD256gb, Windows 10 also installed flawlessly. ( AHCI mode) As expected when inserting my 4 x 4TB Western Digital drives...the machine cannot get to WIN10. The usb boot stick working for years with windows7 is not helping anymore. 😞 I will try to follow again the instructions and prepare it again for WIN10.....any other solutions?

    Replacing SSD OS in Gen8

    I didnt unfortunately. i ended up pushing forward and sacrificed 120gigs just to get the fix moving. got some time again so going to continue to investigate further. At least i got my server up and running again

    Which backup app for Gen8 + Win 10

    no, I'd have to look at their stuff pretty carefully to see the implications of those techniques on recovery time for full and partial restorations. I will probably do that exercise at some time in the future like when I ditch Essentials.

    RAM issue

    Thanks for the reply. It turns out I’d bent a few pins on the CPU socket. God only knows how!! I managed to carefully bend the pins back and I’ve managed to boot up with RAM slots 1 and 2 populated. All seems to be running ok for now. Spot the bent pins in the pic 😬

    Which backup app for Gen8 + Win 10

    Thanks Neal. The Veeam site is rather daunting to find out information, but I had a very good online chat where they provided a lot of information. In my case where I am backing up a lot of data, backup size is most important and their methods of forward and (even more interesting) reverse incremental backup seems to be more suitable than the Acronis schemes. Are you familiar with the pros vs cons of each method? Especially the 'Synthetic Full' incremental is something I'd like to understand.

    Need help adding drive

    Thanks, that did work. The previous version of Windows 64 software I had tried gave me an error saying OS not supported so I just assumed none of the HPE software would run on anything other than Windows Server 2012/2016/2019.

    Microserver Gen8 fan PWM signal inverted?

    Hi all, I was searching and googling for another day for the solution and just found this solution. https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/322390/12v-pwm-fan-seems-to-be-running-inversely-of-what-it-should-be But again no information if the mentioned setup fixed the issue or not. I also dont have the mentioned parts and would like to discuss it with my colleague first. So if anyone of you has a parts and time you can try and reply back here. It really helps to people who are trying to cheat the HP :D. Many thanks.

    Need help adding drive

    Sorry, I need my hand held here. I added a second internal drive and cannot figure out how to expose it to the OS (win 10). After banging my head against the non-functional F5 key for ages I learned it was disabled on the ML10 so I downloaded the SSA app iso and burned it to a USB key with the HP utility, but when that boots it errors out of loading a gui and goes to command line. I am going through the help pages but it is overwhelming. I have managed to show the config of the controller and the second drive is recognized, but specifically states it is not exposed to the OS. Is there a way to get a gui version of SSA to load? I tried to download the app itself but it was not compatible with win 10, so it seems I have to use an ISO version. If I can't get a gui, what is it I need to do? I don't actually want a RAID configured. My OS drive in slot 1 is 1TB and this is a 10TB data drive in slot 2 that I will mirror to an external drive just using the OS features. My guess was I want to do simple raid 0 on the second drive to make it a stand alone disk, but I'm not sure how to do it and be sure not to botch up my OS drive. Any links or advice would be appreciated. THANKS! EDIT: The article I found had linked to an older version of the SSA, will try a newer one tomorrow.

    Usage of VPN

    Once you have a reasonable understanding of how VPN works, you can easily extrapolate any number of use cases: 1. VPN is oftentimes called a "tunnel". You create a tunnel from your device or network to whatever, whoever, or wherever the other end terminates to. Like a tunnel, as long as your data stays within that tunnel (encrypted), anyone and anything outside the tunnel won't be able to read it. This is the privacy aspect of VPN. 2. You can also create a tunnel from a device like a PC or mobile phone (remote-access VPN) or from one network to another network (site-to-site VPN) using a router or firewall. This allows you to access the remote network's resources like you're physically there. This is the remote access features of VPN. 3. If you extend the concept of #2 above and give the 2nd network a gateway for internet access, then you have effectively make yourself anonymous. Any network traffic you generate will not show your actual IP address, rather, websites will see the IP address as coming from the 2nd network. 4. If you again extend the concept of #3 and the 2nd network is in another country, you will then be able to access geo-locked sites or content from that country. And so on... You can extrapolate more use cases from those concepts. As with almost anything, VPN can be used for good as well as for bad, or at the least, questionable intentions. As an example... most organizations block Facebook and/or Youtube on their networks for good reason. A shady employee can use a VPN to bypass those filters and policies. Another example: Some ISPs throttle high-bandwidth traffic like video streaming or P2P/torrents. Oftentimes, using a VPN will let you bypass those restrictions (as their filter algorithm won't be able to pry into your tunnel to make a determination of what kind of traffic it is).

    RAM issue

    From your testing it looks the issue is with slot 2. The memory controller is part of the CPU. It is possible that some debris got on the pins of the CPU and is causing slot 2 not to work. Check the pins and the pads to be sure they are clean.

    RAM issue

    I’ve just upgraded to a Xeon E3-1260L and I’ve just experienced a similar thing. Stuck on 30%, ‘Memory and QPI Link Initialization Start’ with status code 0114 and then the server powers off. I have the original 4GB module (in slot 1 nearest the CPU) plus an HP/Hynix 8GB module. No issues until restarting after installing the Xeon. I removed the 8GB module and just had the 4GB in slot 1 - it worked. I then tried the 8GB module in slot 1 - it worked. I tried to add the 4GB module in to slot 2 and the error returned. I shall try pulling the CPU and giving it a clean tomorrow. I’m glad I found this thread!

    Usage of VPN

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network I use it to maintain my privacy on public networks - there are known problems with using a open wifi connection in public wifi networks ,such as airports and even hotels with the right software, you can snoop and capture logins/ passwords on unencrypted wifi transmissions

    ODD booting with AHCI and OS Upgrading

    i have the same question...i have followed the above instructions years ago and created a boot usb stick and i did not have any problems with WIN7. i just bought a XEON cpu and a new SSD 120gb drive to upgrade the G8. What should i do to install WIN10 ???? my current setup is SSD 60gb in ODD and using the 4 bays with 4tb HDD each for simple storage. Not raid or anything fancy. please advice.

    Usage of VPN

    I really hoped some answers on the thread.. Well, my main question is what is a VPN used for. I dont have an outline. Like I have to elaborate the usage of VPN but there are general uses that everyone knows related to the privacy, content unlocking, accessing restricted sites using VPN. I mean these are known usages. Are there any that you might feel you can add on. I have read through sites of different VPNs, rankings and reviews sites and more or less they have these features mentioned in there. I managed to talk to a guy who happens to work for a VPN and he was like that there are 12/13 commonly "known" use cases, but there can be more. So, when I say generic I mean these commonly known use cases. Hope the above clears things a bit.

    Microserver Gen8 fan PWM signal inverted?

    Yes, I would be interested about the results too. It looks that I have a same issue as you guys. it means: new CPU fan is slowing down once case fun is getting faster and exactly opposite, when case fan getting slower, the CPU fan starts to run faster. I would be more than thankfull if there is any kind of circuit board scheme or any guide how to make a PWM signal invertor. I dont understand why the HP had to complicate everything so much. Why to make life easier if you can struggle ? Thanks all.
  21. mine was green too but hung trying to get to backup status

    Gen 10 Plus vs Gen 10

    That card looks like it meets your needs. One thing to note, it uses the same controller as the MS Gen10, Marvell 88SE9230. The bus on that chip is x2 PCIe version 2.0, so two SATA III SSD's would be able to saturate the bus on the chip. Likely not a concern for the use case you listed. On the MS Gen10 it is a tight fit between the chassis and the top of low profile cards. you may need to get creative with SATA cables to use the two ports on the card. https://cn.marvell.com/content/dam/marvell/en/public-collateral/storage/marvell-storage-88se92xx-product-brief-2012-04.pdf
  23. What I noticed on the Win 10 system before reinstalling the connector is that hovering over the connector icon, it showed as Connected to Server, and the icon was green. So there was no indication that anything was wrong. It was not until I went to rename the backups on the server that I noticed the last successful backup was the day before the Win 10 update.

    Which backup app for Gen8 + Win 10

    that's the one, the FREE version. the recovery usb sticks are pretty handy, they let you add drivers to them in the process.
  25. I had to uninstall and reinstall the connector on the first pc that got this update. it was fine after that. curiously when it was not working Essentials did not flag that backups were overdue.
  26. So I did another uninstall of the Connector software, and this time it took. Not sure what I did differently.

    Which backup app for Gen8 + Win 10

    Which agent did you use? Was it this ... https://www.veeam.com/windows-endpoint-server-backup-free.html...or something else? Maybe I could try this to backup my OS SSDs which I do to external USB HD rather than a NAS / server.
