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.

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

      FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.

      I need to update the firmware on a HP Proliant Microserver Remote Access Card installed in my N40L.
       
      Can someone please explain what I need to do to create a boot device that will update the firmware on the Remote Access Card?
       
      Thanks

      Good evening,
       
      after checking my ILo4, version2.61 on my Gen8 hp microservet, i saw an exclamation mark at cpld-pal0. It is now version 0x06.
      i have read that there is an version 0x32.
       
      anybody who has this version, and can provide me with a download link?
       
      Attached my firmware configuration. Any suggestions for any updating? Think most is up to date?
