Upgrading to HP MS Gen8 Cluster and Ubuntu combaitbility

Recommended Posts


It's been a long time since i created this thread, but i have to say that i didn't go for the Microserver despite being a very nice hardware set. Being not a very cheap decision, made me take my time and reconsider/research more. After reading many posts/threads/forums I managed to get a glimpse on the Superserver 5028d-tn4t. The hardware costs around 1500$ with 6 sata3 ports, 64gb (Max 128GB) of DDR4 ram 8/16 Xeon cores/threads and many Network connectivity options including IPMI and 2x10G Lan.So this makes it the best home lab for me.


Thank you all very much for the help, especially @Metallus!

Best regards

      Hi everyone.
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.
