Icy Dock MB994SP-4SB-1 in ML30 Gen9

I decided to try using an Icy Dock MB994SP-4SB-1 in my ProLiant ML30 Gen9 to hold my two SSDs that I have in a RAID0 running Server 2012R2

 

Seems to work pretty well so far -- should work too in the ML10v2 though I haven't tried it yet

Nice.  I ordered the exact same cage at the time I ordered my ML10 v2 (which is en route).

 

I'm migrating all my drives over from the MicroServer Gen8.  The SSDs will continue to be the OS drive(s) off the onboard B140i controller.  The four platter drives RAID-5 array will be preserved on the P222 controller.

I got the ExpressCage MB324SP-B for mine. Fits well, but the power cable needed a bit of a twist to have it fit both this and the DVD.

Got 3 SSD's in it (slot 1, 2 and 4), a Samsung 850 Pro and 2 Crucial's (can't remember exact models at the moment), but ones about 500gb and other 250gb. Anyway, the disks in slot 1 and 2 seem to flash the blue disk activity light when there is disk access, however the disk in slot 4 just shows a solid blue light. Not sure if that's because of the disk, or maybe theres a fault / bug. I need to swap the disks around a little to check.

This is the beginning of my new project.  Note:  I'm a little disappointed in the 4-bay IcyDock as compared to the one I had on my NL40 Microserver; the slim optical drive/2x 2.5" dock used metal drive sleds, was more solid., and IMO, had nicer indicator lights  This one isn't bad mind you; I'd just like them to make it similar to the one I had then.  Joe, it looks like you have a different model than I do, and have the metal trays.  I'm going to have to look back and see if they have another version.

 

Aaaand, for some reason I'm not able to add a new gallery, and so cannot attach photos (nothing happens in FireFox or Chrome).  Going to have to figure this out before I post a picture.  And I now realize that IcyDock makes two models of 4 x 2.5" docks; I got the MB324SP-B instead of the ToughArmor; had I realized they made two, I would have gone with the MB994SP-4S, like iAndrews.

I've got the same issue, I'm beginning to think only Moderators can post/attach pictures. Maybe Joe_Minor can confirm this?

I also can't post photos, I tried when I did my post above, but it didn't work.
 
Also, my cage is the MB324SP-B (which is the ExpressCage) which has the plastic (but quick to mount a disk in) trays.

Is the problem you can't post a photo in the topic thread or that you can't add photos to the gallery so that you can use them in a topic thread?

 

I seem to be able to post a pic if I pull it from some place like my public drop box folder.

I can't seem to add new galleries in addition to my old ones.  And I can't drag and drop pictures on top of a post either.

 

I believe linking from an external source would work.

I tried it too and am experiencing the same as LoneWolf.

      Casus:
       
      Hoping that the HDD PCB can be exchanged with an PCB of the G9/G10 series.
       
      I know it has to be 4x 3.5"
      But it has to fit by screws.
       
      The connectors are: 4x sata-like connector with Power molded like an SAS connector.
       
      The info that i could find on the cage is:
       
      PartNo: 90.5P620.001G

      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.

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?

      Hi,
       
      I’m looking for the latest Proliant SPP for Gen. 8 servers. 
       
      I’ve got a MicroServer, a DL360e and a DL380e which I’d love to update.
       
      Has anyone got the latest SPP that wouldn’t mind sharing?
       
      Thank you!
