First, my specs (briefly):
AMD Opteron X3216
Win Server 2016
The Taskmanager shows only 1 CPU-core instead of 2.
(ref. image 1)
checked msconfig...no CPU-Limit set checked, whether other users see the same amount of CPU-cores in task-manager (ref. image-link (internal) 2)
Anyone out there with an idea to solve this?
Hoping someone can help me out with this one!
I have a simple RDS setup of 2 servers. One is the connection broker/gateway etc (RDS001), and the other is the session host (RDS002). These are both Server 2012 R2, in the same OU, with the same GPO's applied.
I am using HP T510 clients (running ThinPro 5.2), with an RDP connection to the farm address (rds.domain.local). The connection is working fine, however usb devices (ie memory stick) will not redirect to the session host. All the redirection options in the collection properties are ticked. Audio redirects to the client with no problem.
I have also tried connecting directly to the session host (RDS002) with no difference.
I believe the redirect settings on the T510 to be correct, as if i set up another rdp connection from the client to another server or even the connection broker (RDS001) , the usb device i have plugged to the client redirects fine.
So, it seems as though it is only the session host (which is where i actually want to redirect a device to..lol) having this problem.
However, if i connect to the session host from a windows 10 pc, everything redirects as expected - just not from the t510!
Any help appreciated!
Over the many years of using the Gen8 there always seems to be some problem!! ;-)
I have Windows 10 Pro install to a HDD in the ODD. The 4 3TB drives in the other bays, configured via Storage Spaces. BIOS set to AHCI and I have made use of the usb boot key to map the boot to the ODD bay. All has been resonably well for well over a year however I was never able to get Windows to update. Now I'm getting warnings that the software will be unsupported and have tried several times to do an upgrade but frequently get errors such as the installer cannot detect how much space is availble. I think that's because of the USB key.
I don't want to go back to square one and reinstall if I cannot help it but has anyone else experienced this? I seem to recall having problems with using the B120i but cannot for the life of me remember why I stopped using it... but I know that changing to Legacy SATA should remove the need for the USB boot mapping.
I've been fighting with FreeNAS over the past few weeks trying to get a Sonarr->SABnzbd->Plex system setup (as I have done many times both on Windows and Mac), however, I have had nothing but issues with FreeNAS.
So I hoped to install Windows Server 2016, and install these 3 programs the same way I have in Windows installations before? I realise that the Windows installation would have more overhead and could impact Plex transcoding performance, but I'm planning on installing a better processor to combat that.
Can I install Windows to run off a USB stick like I currently have FreeNAS?
Anything else I should be aware of?
I have new Gen8 and installed SSD do 5th bay, trying to boot via USB Grub. But i can't get it to work. I switched in BIOS to USB boot and tried to install Ubuntu server 16 + /boot set to USB drive, partition created on USB (ext3). Not working.
So i deleted all and tried to install Proxmox to SSD, without problem. Then i used tutorial to create USB bootable https://jarrodla.blogspot.cz/2014/04/hp-microserver-gen8-boot-from-5th-sata.html but again, no luck. I tried to create another three USB flash drives, still not booting, USB is skipped to next medium.
Please, can you help me what's crucial to USB to be working as GRUB loader to boot from SSD? Thanks!
