The option of an iLo card is not possible as there are no hooks into the system board to support it. I had been researching AMD CPU and chipsets, as I thought at one time they had been working on something like Intel AMT, but no luck there. The solution folks are promoting some of the features of ClearOS as a remote access solution, VPN, Firewall, IDS, IPS and Gateway tools. I need to spend more time with ClearOS. HP is really promoting it on their platforms.

Still working on the ESXi stuff.

I'd never heard of clearOS before now tbh, sounds like it's a bit of a NAS type solution that you can then add stuff too, bit like the QNAP stuff...

Now there is a place left by HPE in the market for DELL or Lenovo to step in and make a server with cube form factor . Or folks buy Supermicro :)

So far i only saw few possitive comments about HPE Microserver Gen10 on the popular forums around the world.

It is 9.5mm. The retention clip is different than what is in the Gen8.

Shame we dont know someone who could maybe get some clips made up that screw to the back of a standard 9.5mm drive so it fits the Gen10...

      My old Proliant Microserver - a N36L running XUbuntu - died recently (PSU issues). I've replaced it with a Gen8 Microserver, but am really struggling to install the OS... Can't find the things I think I want in the BIOS, and since the N36L, there is a whole load of lingo to pick up.... HP Smart Array Controllers, HP Smart Memory, iLO, Intelligent Provisioning...
       
      I have 4x HDDs in the server (all different sizes!), and I want to end up with the OS on a partition on one of them, with data on all the rest, and no RAID - and retaining the data that is on at least one of those drives...
       
      If I boot from the latest XUbuntu ISO on a memory stick, I can partition the drives OK, and appear to install the OS OK. But then when I try and reboot it doesn't detect the OS on the HDD... so it ends up falling back to trying to boot from the network, failing, then looping...
       
      From I've read I think I need to do something to the Smart Array Controller to make it run in dumb/AHCI mode. But how? I can't find the relevant option...
       
      Confession: having not realised the complexity when I first powered up the machine, I have no idea what random options I may have inadvertently selected not knowing their name/significance!
       
      Is there a step by step to installing a Linux variant on a Gen8 Microserver that doesn't do RAID somewhere? Not found one yet...
       
      Links below are to two (slightly shaky, sorry!) videos of where I've got to so far. First is of a successful boot into the XUbuntu installer from a memory stick. Second is a boot showing the failure to find any boot media, then into the HPE Smart Storage administrator - and my lack of ability to find any options to select AHCI mode or similar...

      Feels like one of those old text adventures where you are lost in a forest of impenetrable jargon terms, and you can't quite distinguish where you are from where you expected to be, except you can't quite achieve what you want to!! Aaargh.
       
      Thanks!

      HP says "less than $399" so $398.99?

      Just for fun, I attached a USB external DVD drive to the Gen10 MicroServer and played Star Wars: Rogue One.  I had loaded PowerDVD onto the MicroServer.
      Used a DP1.2 to HDMI active converter and the sound played through on the Monitor Speakers.
      I've been playing a lot of streaming videos (from my home server and from Amazon Prime) without problems too.
