    HP Proliant ML350p G8 Watercooling!

    I am in the process of acquiring a ml350e g8 motherboard and I was wonder what is the best way to simulate the fans if I do not have original cable. Also can this board be powered by a standard atx power supply or not?

    Best way to m.2?

    Yes, but only if the BIOS is set to UEFI.

    Best way to m.2?

    hello is possible to use the NVMe M.2 ssd as boot drive with windows or linux ? thank you
  6. There is no latch, just carefully pull up on the brown loop. Page 29: http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c03783380-6.pdf
  7. I'm trying to remove the system board to update the CPU and have removed all cables except the temp sensor, which is proving nigh impossible to remove. The Stutsman / Miner YouTube video starts with the cable already removed, but advises checking the HP videos which seem not to be online any more. There is a pull-loop on the connector but that seems to move nothing and I'm afraid to break anything (I did break cables on my N40L which I do not want to repeat), whilst it does not look possible to remove the sensor from the front panel, so I'm stuck. Can anybody help advise what to do?

    Coronavirus Lockdown Home Projects

    That sounds fun. I don't know if I can sneak that one past the CFO though. Still contemplating a trip to Lowe's. I need a few things although those projects could wait. I have a few N95 masks so i could wear one. I wonder how many people are still venturing out for things like this? Doesn't Lowe's have TP?

    Coronavirus Lockdown Home Projects

    Lots of projects on the list. So far I have ordered a new 65 inch TV to replace the ancient TV in the family room. Lots of reorganization when it gets here.

    Coronavirus Lockdown Home Projects

    We have a larger hound and the weenie often uses her to step up onto the couch.
  12. Thanks. I ran the SSA and removed all the HDDs, but the red light is still flashing. The SSA diagnostic report shows just the OS SSD on B120i and the 4 HDDs on the HBA card with no errors, although it would not let me select a USB disk to save it. I removed the mini-SAS cable from the adaptor card and powered up again and Win 10 booted with the blue light, so I reconnected the cable again and this time got the blue light !! I'm not entirely why this should have fixed things. Thanks for your help.

    Upgrading from WHS2011?

    Personally, I'd go the 2019 route, Hyper-V, and then go from there.. YMMV..

    Upgrading from WHS2011?

    Unfortunatly my choice is WS2019 for free or I'll need to pay . I know it's old harware, and I am thinking about not changing anything and just keep going, as long as it works. Because right now it more or less fulfills all my whishes. It's just a bit of worry that MS no longer update WHS2011. Other options are buying all new hardware, but I'm not keen on putting all that cash on a new server since the functions I need are quite minimal. Like oj88 said I was thinking about a strong NAS, but not sure they can handle multiple transcoding in Plex media server.
  17. If you are on a lockdown are you taking on any new home projects? I have a few going and thought it would be a good conversation. Smart Home stuff, cameras, doorbells, switches, etc. Build a model, Lego, Model Rockets? How about a Ring Doorbell for all those that won't be ringing your bell? https://www.amazon.com/Ring-Doorbell-Motion-Activated-Installation/dp/B072QLXK2T/ Cameras? https://www.amazon.com/All-new-Ring-Stick-Up-Cam-Battery-HD-security-camera-with-two-way-talk-Works-with-Alexa-/dp/B07Q6ZZFLS/ I made a dog ramp for our Dachshund. I need another one.
  18. Hi Have you tried a different monitor? When was the last time you working on the server, was it working ok? Could be a possible memory fault. Try removing and re-seating the memory and try. Thanks
  19. Hi all, I have the following machine HPE PROLIANT MICROSERVER G7 N54L Product Number : 704941-421 No signal when connecting to the monitor, I tried different cable,still no luck ...any help much appreciated Thank you all in advance regards tammy
  20. SSA is Smart Storage Administrator, during boot there should be an option to configure the B120i, that is how you enter the SSA. You can also download the offline version of the SSA, load that on a USB and boot from it.
  21. Is SSA the 'Smart Storage Administrator' ? How do I know if I already have this in my system? or is this the latest version that I need to load? https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_6b906530d6624549bff23e4eab I assumed that I would need to do this but I went through the user guide to find how but could not see where this was covered, so can you point me where to find how to do this? Update: I did find a later version of the B120i driver which I installed. This changed the behaviour of the flashing, bringing it earlier before Win 10 had completed booting, but the end result is still red flashing. Thanks as always for your patient help
  22. At boot have you entered the SSA to see if it is showing errors or issues with the B120i? You likely need to tell the B20i to for get the four drives you removed from it.
  23. It continues to show B120i errors even after reboot. Even when I shut down, the red light continues to flash and I had to pull out the power cord to stop it. On hard restart, the blue light showed all the way through successful Win 10 boot-up but I returned to the server 10min later and the red light was flashing again. I could not see in the B120i User Guide how to simply remove drives and/or array of individual RAID 0 drives, but might that action be the solution for the flashing red? Sadly I do not have ILO4 working, even after a lot of complex advice here and from HP support, and now the 3 year Advanced license has expired. Is there any other way to access the error log? I did see an long error log in Intelligent Provisioning, is that the same? I raised a topic here and with Stablebit (for Scanner) because I could not see any drive info and the advice was that it might be fixed by replacing B120i with an HBA controller. I just checked and indeed that solved the problem and I could see that Scanner never ran in the 4 years since I installed it !! It is running now and the amount of clicking is much reduced as it gradually scans the disks, so thanks for that hint.
  24. The B120i showed an error because after reboot it was missing drives as you moved the drives to a different controller. It should not show that error after future reboots. Drive clicking is generally not a good sign. It could be that DrivePool is checking drives. You should check in their tools to see that everything is OK. The red light on the front of the server should be listed in the error log in iLo. Log into iLo to see if an error is listed there. This is the B120i user guide: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=emr_na-c03326739
  25. only two right now. I have gotten to the point where I can just rebuild them from scratch next time they bork. under vbox they don't seem to be hanging up the server backup at least and I take them down from time to time to veeam them to a nas slice.

    Upgrading from WHS2011?

    My WHS2011 still works, but there are caveats: 1. I find it necessary to reboot maybe once a week. Otherwise, any number of strange things starts to happen 2. It's no longer getting critical security updates 3. 8GB RAM limit 4. The client backup stopped working ages ago
  27. I've added my 4i SAS HBA and checked it is recognised / working in Win 10 Device Manager, I then moved the system mini-SAS cable to the new card with the OS SSD still on B120i for the moment When I power up, I get B120i error messages saying the 4 HDDs are failed (i.e. missing?) but when I select F2 to continue, Win 10 still boots up OK and the 4 drives now show in Explorer and the DrivePool is there, so it mostly looks OK, but there is now constant flickering HDD access lights on the HBA card and HDD clicking, whilst the bottom light bar turned to red. Being a timid newbie, I tried to find the B120i user guide and I found a link here but it didn't work and couldn't find it online, so what should I do the correct the red light and B120i errors?

    SSD disk cache?

    Mis-typed the Samsung SSD number, it is the 860 Pro, not 850 Pro. See also this link on the significant performance improvement on large transfers of having a large SLC cache... https://www.anandtech.com/show/13633/the-samsung-860-qvo-ssd-review/2 ...so selection of the best SSD looks even more important
