Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

i'm selling my beloved HP Microserver Gen8. It's fully specced. 


Comes with:

5 drive ready (i've got power and sata connector on the place where the ODD drive would go, i use it for an ssd there). 

Xeon 1280v2 (check cpubenchmarks, its pretty much the fastest one for the socket)

CPU Fan that is throttle regulated by the system (i spliced the back fan rpm control)

16 GB Kingston ram

ILO Advanced


Everything updated to last HP Pack. 

590+shippin, italy based

      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.. ;-(

      Hi everyone.
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.

      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
