ESXi 6.5 B120i (hpvsa) HP Microserver Gen8 Low performance

Recommended Posts

I cannot edit my answer, but I mean which of these should I select from bios

system options \ sata controller options \ 
enable sata legacy options
enable sata ahci support
enable dynamic HP smart Array B120i RAID support

Use ahci sata not legacy, i think its better; I use the raid controller because the fan is  6-8%, with ahci I get 12-17%.

If the 16% fan is not bothering you and you don't need raid for your drives stick with ahci, it offers good performance.

      Does anyone know if it is possible to get Agentless Management Service (AMS) running on Debian/Ubuntu Linux? It is always showing as Not Available in the iLO page and I have only ever seen this active in Windows.

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

      Hey guys,
       
      As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
       
      So far my list is as follows:
      BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)  
      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
      Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)  
      Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
       
      I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.
