Windows Server 2016 on HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9

Recommended Posts

After the installation of the ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1 I used iLO4 to remote into my ML30 Gen9 and began to install Windows Server 2016 manually (i.e. without using IP) http://homeservershow.com/install-icy-dock-mb994sp-4sb-1-in-hpe-proliant-ml30-gen9.html 

 

I updated the Firmware with SPP then installed S2016 then updated the drivers with HPSUM.

Updating Firmware, installing Windows Server 2016, Updating Drivers

I used iLO4 to remote into my ML30 Gen9 and began to install Windows Server 2016 manually (i.e. without using IP) in the following general steps:

 

  1. Download Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) from Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center – Drivers & Software – the current version is 2016.10.0 (24 Oct 2016) – check also treads about SPP at HSS Forum MS Gen8
  2. Load the SPP ISO in remote desktop of iLO4
  3. Boot the ML30 Gen9 – with no drives in the ML30 Gen9 in my case – and let SPP run automatically and update all firmware
  4. Shut down the ML30 Gen9
  5. Next: I loaded the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB into drive 1 of the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1
  6. Go to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center – Drivers & Software – and download the file cp028631.exe that is the Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller Driver for 64-bit Microsoft Windows Server 2012/2016 Editions (This is the same driver I plan to use for a manual installation of Windows 10 64-bit Pro sometime later in the ML30 Gen9) – the current version is 62.12.0.64 (24 Oct 2016)
  7. Extract the files in cp028631.exe and load those into a file folder that I then attach/load in remote desktop of iLO4 (during Windows install this will be the folder I browse to so that Windows can pull in the driver and see the Samsung 840 Pro
  8. Load the Windows Server 2016 ISO in remote desktop of iLO4
  9. Boot the ML30 Gen9
  10. During boot go into IP and select SSA (Smart Storage Administrator)
  11. In SSA I set up the Samsung 840 Pro as a single drive RAID0 to be used as my OS drive
  12. Exit SSA & IP and Restart the ML30 Gen9
  13. Proceed with the normal Windows install
  14. After Windows is installed and updated – reattach SPP ISO in remote desktop of iLO4
  15. In the Windows desktop go to the SPP ISO in File Explorer and Execute the Batch file for HPSUM – I chose the automatic update
  16. After running HPSUM (and rebooting) the HPE software shown in Figure above was installed.  Enjoy!

      Hi Guys,
             Was hoping someone with experience with Freenas might be able to help. I set up Freenas on my gen8 and everything was working great. Freenas was installed with a network cable plugged in to the Ilo port. All was fine until I needed to re-arrange my office. Shutdown the gen8, unplugged the cable. moved everything, plugged it back in. Now, network interfaces will not connect. Can't ping, etc,.
      I tried to re-configure the interface from the shell (through Ilo). Tried static, dhcp, tried some tip I read re-  disableing msi and msix. No dice. I have an N54L running as a DC. I also tried deleting and re-adding DNS records, so far, to no avail.
      Anyone deal with this situation before?
      If this is not an appropriate question for this forum, please excuse me. I was trying to avoid signing up to yet another forum (freenas).
       
      Any help greatly appreciated!
       
      regards
