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!

      I have been running the WHS1 pack 3 for many years.  Unfortunately it is no longer working.  I got a Proliant microserver Gen10 hoping it will run it but was unable to install the software.  The software should run on most older PCs?

      Does anyone have the WHS1 running on the Gen10?  Also my WHS1 iso is Pack 1.  If I manage to install the Pack 1 can I find on the web the upgrade to pack 3?  Would I be forever stuck at Pack 1?  Any advice would be appreciated.

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

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?

      Hi,
       
      I’m looking for the latest Proliant SPP for Gen. 8 servers. 
       
      I’ve got a MicroServer, a DL360e and a DL380e which I’d love to update.
       
      Has anyone got the latest SPP that wouldn’t mind sharing?
       
      Thank you!

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(
