Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I bought a HP Smart Array P222 Controller for my HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8.

Operating System is ESXI 6.5.

 

How can I update the P222 Controller firmware using ESXI operating system?
Is this possible?

 

Thanks

      Hello,
       
      I have recently purchased a Gen 8 Microserver with plans to install OMV.
       
      I did a bit of reading prior (and having also got a N54L) picked up a P222 Smart Array Raid card so I could also use RAID 5 on my 4 x 8Tb WD Red Plus drives.
       
      I also had lying around an old 2.5" 160Gb WD Blue drive which I was going to use for the OS.
       
      All the extra parts and cables have been installed (power from FDD to SATA for the HDD) and everything appeared ok.
       
      I have configured the 160Gb drive as Raid 0 in SSA on the B120i internal controller.  However when I attempt to install OMV, it comes up with an error message when installing the files onto this drive.
       
      Is it possible to install an OS onto the ODD drive and boot from it.  I have read elsewhere that I may need to use either a USB or microSD card as the boot device.
       
      Does this drive need to be a SSD?
      Since I have plugged the SAS cable into the P222 card, I was able to configure the drives in RAID 5, however, I am now getting a error under iLO saying System Health Degraded.
       
      Upon further investigation, it appears to be from the P222 card, getting Error 1797 - Slot 1 Drive Array - Write-Back Cache Backup Previously failed, caching is disabled at startup.
       
      When I open the SSA application, there is a Warning - 823 - The cache for Smart Array P222 in Slot 1 has been disabled because the backup operation failed.
       
      I am unsure what could be causing this as the card has the cache and battery (both being detected).  I have tried removing the cache and reinstalling it but didn't make a difference.
       
      Is this a hardware issue?  I only just purchased the card so will contact the seller to advise of a faulty card.
       
      Any help on either of these would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks

      Hi All,
       
      Is it possible for the P222 Raid Card to pass through storage on the Mircroserver Gen8 esxi 7.0u build? 
      I cannot get my VM to see a datastore I have created after rebuilding my Gen8 from Windows to ESXI 7.0u
       
      Hope my query makes sense.
       
      Thanks

      Hi! I am planning to buy a Microserver Gen10 Plus E-2224 for a small business, and want to add as much disk space as possible. I already have the older Gen10 with 4x4TB HDDs in RAID10 (effective capacity 8TB) and a 2TB SSD in the 5th slot (which is missing on the new G10 plus). The max stated capacity on the HPE site seems to be limited with their own enterprise HDDs, so I'd like to see if I can go for bigger disks. The server would be running a sort of an application which collects lots of data from devices, and the data tends to grow over time (1-2TB per year), and I'd prefer not to worry about the capacity for the next several years.
       
      My primary concern is the max capacity (max single drive capacity + max total RAID capacity with the Smart Array S100i) I can reliably install. If possible, some actual setup which has been shown to work with 32GB RAM and its limited 180W power supply? I was also planning on upgrading it to 32GB. If I am buying a 16GB RAM server, does this means it has both slots occupied with 8GB modules and I need a 2x32GB kit? For the os SSD, I won't have the PCIe slot available because we need to insert a certain GPS PCIe card that the server uses for time synchronization. So, if I want an SSD, this means I should use something like 1xSSD + 3xHDD in RAID5, instead of RAID10?  
      I've been planning to install 16TB Seagate Exos X16 drives, with rated max operating power at 10W (6.3W for random reads/writes). Does this seam feasible?
       
      Thanks a lot for your tips!

      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?
