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.. ;-(
It's that time of year again (plus or minus a few months) for Windows owners to pour out a suitable beverage, switch on the TV (say to a cricket match in Summer) and multiplex those activities with updating Windows on one's devices.
This time round I reverted to an 'in place' upgrade using the Upgrade now button at https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10, wondering whether my shared folder setup would be destroyed as it had been in previous upgrades … but no, in general all went smoothly for:
HP Microserver N36L
HP Microserver N54L
HP Microserver Gen8 x 2
These are pure file servers running W10 Professional.
The only point to note is the continued absence of the CPU usage trace on the Gen8 Task Manager graph.
Microsoft is changing the update policy for windows 10 per this article on thurrotts website
a couple of years ago, I stopped using a windows 10 homeserver because the update cycles kept breaking things
this new announcement could cause some reconsideration of this.
Don't think I am going to replace my Qnap nas anytime soon -its been rock solid
but if I where building a new server, would consider it.
wouldn't be hard to set up machine with a lot more capability than most NAS's without laying out 400 bucks for a windows server license
and you can use Drivepool, which I miss from my W10 server
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?
First, my specs (briefly):
AMD Opteron X3216
Win Server 2016
The Taskmanager shows only 1 CPU-core instead of 2.
(ref. image 1)
checked msconfig...no CPU-Limit set checked, whether other users see the same amount of CPU-cores in task-manager (ref. image-link (internal) 2)
Anyone out there with an idea to solve this?
