    Gen 10 PCIe/NVMe Boot

    My plan was to build an Storage volume (storage spaces microsoft) with 4x10TB (disks) and 2x1TB (m.2) and create a Tiered cached config. I've built a 8bay unit like this using a ASRock X470D4U2-2T, U-NAS NSC-810A Server Chassis and LSI M1015 SAS9211-8 (HBA) for the disks. M.2 are on the motherboard and a SATA SSD is used as boot volume connected to onboard SATA. Trying to accomplished something similar based on the gen10 plus. Got to figure out what to boot from though. Any ideas here? I could settle for 2x10TB disks (or bigger) and boot from an SSD in one of the bays. If bios is updated to support bifurcation 4x4x4x4 then this is not a problem as you can buy a cheap 4 slot m.2 pcie and have it boot from a 3rd M.2 attached to that. I upvoted a thread I found on bifurcation in hp support forums, https://community.hpe.com/t5/proliant-servers-netservers/microserver-gen10-plus-pcie-bifurcation-support-issue/td-p/7092453# Brgs,

    Gen 10 PCIe/NVMe Boot

    Chances are good that it will work. It uses a PCIe switch chip: http://www.linkreal.com.cn/en/products/LRNV95242I.html

    Gen 10 PCIe/NVMe Boot

    Is this an option? https://www.newegg.com/linkreal-lrnv9524-2i-pci-express-to-m-2-card/p/17Z-00TX-00031

  9. I have not seen anything beyond the standard MSU. A software RAID in FreeBSD may be the best route to make it easier to monitor. The Marvell RAID solution is driver based , layered on their SATA chip. A software RAID would likely be similar performance.

    Booting SSD from PCIe x1 slot

    Interesting, I did not think of that, but In hindsight I likely only had the NVMe drive in my server when I installed Windows 10 as well. Glad you got it working.

    Booting SSD from PCIe x1 slot

    Hi, I removed all other HDDs and USB sticks and now the windows 10 is sucessfully installed!

    Ring Always Home

    Not sure how people will take too it, given its said to have no user control on it, it just goes off and does its thing, guessing it works a bit like the robot vacuum cleaners where it rolls around mapping out the room, but this does it for the house..

    That sure is an interesting device, I am a Ring customer and had not heard about this.... Thanks for sharing.

    Blink

    I see Blink are bringing out new cameras and a new Sync Station, wonder if this will cover off my issues with the re-arm timer that they have currently. I'm pretty much at the point where the cameras aren't really being used as much as they could be due to the rearm timer and them missing out stuff, could be enough to tempt me to stay with the system to be fair..

    Ring Always Home

    Anyone seen anything of this yet? https://blog.ring.com/2020/09/24/introducing-ring-always-home-cam-an-innovative-new-approach-to-always-being-home/ I'm sure the dog would try to take it out of the air, but other than it being an interesting, and expensive dog chew, I quite like the idea...
  16. I have always used DrivePool and been very happy with it, as have many Forum members, but I am trying to replace my WHS2011 as I migrate to Win 10, but have had VSS failure troubles in assessing replacement backup solutions on my Gen 8 server. I tried Acronis and Macrium and both give VSS failures, even if the backups ostensibly work but do not verify. Talking to DrivePool (Stablebit) they stated that they do not support VSS so it seems I have to find a non-VSS backup application or give up DrivePool, which I really do not want to do. I also tried Veeam which failed for undiagnosed issues and Veritas report VSS issues. Can anybody advise? Update: I spoke too soon about WHS2011 because looking at Event Viewer for the first time, I see Shadow Copy Event-Viewer Volume errors there too so WHS2011 uses VSS too and cannot be relied on.
  17. HP provides the Marvell Storage Utility (MSU) software to manipulate and monitor the Marvell raid system built-in MicroServer gen10 for Windows and Linux but not for FreeBSD. I installed FreeBSD 12.1 to my MicroServer gen10 using its raid system. It works fine without MSU, but I have trouble monitoring the health of the hard disks under its Marvell system. Does anybody know how to monitor the Marvell system using FreeBSD?
  18. I have been running the WHS1 pack 3 for many years. Unfortunately it is no longer working. I got a Proliant microserver Gen10 hoping it will run it but was unable to install the software. The software should run on most older PCs? Does anyone have the WHS1 running on the Gen10? Also my WHS1 iso is Pack 1. If I manage to install the Pack 1 can I find on the web the upgrade to pack 3? Would I be forever stuck at Pack 1? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Booting SSD from PCIe x1 slot

    Hi, I set the BIOS to UEFI. More details here: 1. I first tried to install the windows on a clean NVMe drive. The error message (which is the picture I posted) came out before the installer was copying the files to the disk. 1st installation of windows failed. 2. I formatted the NVMe and tried to install fedora 32, with 100GB space left. Everything worked fine. 3. After I installed fedora 32. I tried to install windows again on the left space, which is 100GB. The same error message came out after the installer finished copying the files to the disk. 2nd installation of windows failed. 4. I boot from fedora and see what happens in the windows directories. Actually the installer has copied all major files, e.g, Program Files, Windows, Users, etc. But the EFI partition is empty. Thanks.

    Booting SSD from PCIe x1 slot

    Is the BIOS set to UEFI? Did you clear the NVMe drive after installing Linux on it?

    iLO4 AlertMail setup?

    Hey, wondering if anyone here has managed this. I know it does not support SMTP Auth (frustratingly) but I saw this thread and it looked like some people had some success. As it happens, I am on Virgin Media and have tried using my custom email address, my custom domain, port 25 (and 465) and smtp.virginmedia.com but it doesn't seem to work, perhaps Virgin have tightened their security to prevent spam. I use Office 365 so tried to set up Direct Send but can't get that to work either. I do not have a static IP so cannot add to the SPF record for my domain but the email is not delivered to my junk either. Just wanted to set up email alerting for my RAID array to be notified if any disks are pending failure. If this is not possible then can anyone help with the next best thing? Ideally without a load of software or configuration. Thanks

    Problems deleting client from dashboard

    Nobody seemed to know when I asked this questions a year ago. I never figured this out, overcame my OCD issue with this, and lived with the problem until I dumped my Windows 2012 Essentials server with FreeNAS. Never looked back.

    Booting SSD from PCIe x1 slot

    Hi, I am now holding the HPE microserver GEN10 (AMD Opteron(tm) X3418 APU, 8GB + 16 GB DDR4). I bought the exact I/O Crest M.2 PCIe to PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter SI-PEX40110 and a WD NVME 500GB (WDS500G3X0C-00SJG0). I succefully installed and booted Fedora 32 from the NVME SSD. I tried to install Windows 10 (2004) pro into the SSD but failed to write files into it. I also tried to disable the secure boot but still could not install the windows 10.
  24. I thought I might have changed a bios setting that caused this, but I reset it to defaults and just set ahci/high performance/max fan speeds. Basically about 2 weeks ago I have been unable to direct stream anything from my FreeNAS Plex server, I have to set 'adjust quality automatically' in the client and then it plays. Also, general basic FreeNAS tasks are taking a while to complete. I reinstalled Freenas and Plex and reset the client, even used older versions of everything - nothing seems to work which is why I think it must be the server itself. There's no obvious problems in the iLO page, everything is green. Is there a better CPU out there than what I have I could maybe upgrade to? (In my signature) Thanks again, Simon

    Memory for Microserver Gen8

    Can you post a picture of the other side of the modules? Did you change the CPU at the same time you changed the memory? Have you tried using the 4GB and one of the 8GB modules at the same time?
  26. Thanks for the hint, it was inded the RAM who are making my server struggle. Works flawless with the new processor and the old HP RAM. Will try to figure out why it don't want to swallow my new RAM sticks..

    Memory for Microserver Gen8

    I have ordered from mr memory 2 pieces of 8GB (from here: https://www.mrmemory.co.uk/memory-ram-upgrades/hp/proliant/microserver-gen8-g1610t) to replace my 4GB hp 821223-081, but I can't get the server past the POST then. It works properly with the original HP RAM. Does anyone know if there is a problem with the RAM that comes from Mr Memory? I'm using a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1265L V2 @ 2.50GHz if that has any connection to the problem. I attached a picture of the original and the two new ones if someone can spot a difference or the problem.

    Problems deleting client from dashboard

    I have the same problem with WHS 2011. I archived a client computer, then removed it from the dashboard. Since then, I have deleted all my client computer backups (for other reasons). Now I cannot get rid of the ghost computer listed under "archived computer backups". I have re-installed windows on that client and given it a new name, so I cannot relink it to the dashboard. When I right click on the archived computer and select remove, I get no error message - it just doesnt go! I have searched the registry for the computer name but it only comes up under DNLA media sharing. Where is that old name stored in WHS 2011? How can I remove it from the dashoard? It still shows even when the client computer backup directory is empty?
