Hi,
having the same issue running
 

* HP Microserver Gen8
* HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 version 650.U2.9.6.8 released on September 2018 and based on ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 Vmkernel Release Build 9298722.
* all Storage on HP Raid


Following procedure...

- Uninstalled the hpvsa 5.5.0-102
- Installed the hpvsa 5.5.0-88
(- DID NOT esxcli system module set –enabled=false –module=vmw_ahci )
- Rebooted
 

...ended up in:

Boot failed with error "Two filesystems with the same UUID have been detected. Make sure you do not have two ESXi installations"
After overriding this issue, i was glad that the system booted again, but all changes seem somehow reverted (Driver Verison: hpvsa 5.5.0-102)


Did anyone test Driver Downgrade on HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 ?
Do you think disabling module=vmw_ahci should solve my problem and is worth a try ?


mcgrog: Do you think the performance issue should not be present in HPE-ESXi-6.5.0-Update2 any more?


Thanks for your sugestions,
Manfred

      Hi all,
       
      I am new to the server world (please be gentle) and I desperately need some help!
       
      I recently acquired a HP MicroServer Gen8. Bays 1 & 2 have 1TB SSD each and I believe they are setup in a RAID 1 config (not sure how to check) and have windows server 2012 installed.
       
      Bays 3 & 4 are empty and I recently purchased a 4TB WD Blue Hard Drive and managed to install windows 10 onto it via a separate computer.
       
      I've now inserted the 4TB Hard drive into bay 3 and want windows 10 to load up, but its not doing that....it keeps loading up windows server 2012 thats in bays 1/2 hard drives.
       
      How can I choose which bay to boot windows from? I like it to boot from Bay 3 most of the time that has windows 10.
       
      In normal computers, it was simple to organise the boot order via BIOS, but with the Gen8 its seems very complex with HP's own BIOS...etc and it's starting to give me a headache!
       
      Any help from anyone will be really appreciated!
       
      A simple easy to follow instructions will suffice.

      Hello all,
       
      A few questions for those who use Type-1 Hypervisors on their Gen8 MicroServers...
       
      I am looking to try ESXi or ProxMox and have been reading a lot of the threads on here.
      Hopefully you guys can help with some harder to find answers I have been seeking.
       
      1) Which would be the better way to setup ProxMox:
           a) Hypervisor on Internal MicroSD, VMs installed on SSD in ODD Port, Data on 4x HDDs in bays.
           b) Hypervisor on Internal USB, VMs installed on SSD in ODD Port, Data on 4x HDDs in bays.
           c) Hypervisor and VMs both installed on same SSD (partitioned?) in ODD Port, Data on 4x HDDs in bays.
           d) Hypervisor on SSD using a USB-to-SATA cable on Internal USB, VMs installed on separate SSD in ODD Port, Data on 4x HDDs in bays.
       
      2) Would a 128GB SSD be a ‘waste‘ for installing a Hypervisor on? How much space is typically needed?
       
      3) How many VMs have you guys run on a Gen8 comfortably without it being sluggish?
       
      4) Everyone seems to be going RAID crazy these days. Is there any reason to use it if high-availability is not that necessary and a good backup plan is in place? What is wrong with separate disks (or singular Raid0s)?
       
      5) Does using Type-1 Hypervisors have any effect on the internal fans speed/noise? Is it possible to have 3-5 VMs running and still have the fan speed @~8% as it was when I was using 2 nested (Type-2) VMs?
       
      Sorry in advance if some of these questions are silly, common knowledge, or “depends on what you are doing in the VMs!” 😆
       
      Thanks in advance to all those that help!

      This is my first post here but I've been lurking in this forum for quite sometime now, and from what I understand, the only reason that we couldn't achieve 32gb ram on the Microserver Gen8 was because there was no 16gb unbuffered ecc ram available before.
       
      I was searching for a memory module meeting this criteria and I found this one. My question is, letting aside this ridiculous price, is there any compatibility issue that could make this ram won't work on the Microserver Gen8?
       
      Most of the threads here about memory compatibility are quite old and I didn't want to revive an old thread just to ask this, so I'm creating this one.
       
      Thanks in advance.
