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...

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

      I'm putting together a build for a non-profit client and I want to make sure they're getting the best bang for their bucks.
       
      Current server:
      HP MicroServer N40L 8 GB WS2012E Plextor PX-256M5Pro SSD - OS drive SAMSUNG HD103SI 1TB (x2) - Data drives (Storage Spaces) WDC WD20EZRX 2TB (x2) - Data drives (Storage Spaces)  
      On the new server, I'd like to setup the OS on SSDs (RAID 1) for speed and redundancy. Trying to squeeze extra SSDs on the Gen 10 Plus lead me to using the PCIe card. I guess on the Gen 10 there's enough room and SATA connections to put a couple of SSDs in the Optical bay instead. And, I'm leaving 1 drive bay empty to add another 2 TB should they need it, which is not likely.
       
      New Server Option 1 ($2084 CDN):
      HP MicroServer Gen 10 X3418 (P07203-001) 8 GB 8 GB Module - DDR4 2400MHz (Kingston KTH-PL424E/8G) WS2016E StarTech.com Dual M.2 PCIe SSD Adapter Card - x8 / x16 Dual NVMe or AHCI M.2 SSD to PCI Express 3.0 - RAID & JBOD (PEX8M2E2) Samsung 970 EVO 500GB NVMe M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V7E500BW) (x2) - OS Drives (RAID 1) WD Gold 2TB (x3) - Data drives (Storage Spaces, or can I RAID 5 them?)  
      New Server Option 2 ($2362):
      HP MicroServer Gen 10 Plus (P16006-001) 16 GB WS2016E StarTech.com Dual M.2 PCIe SSD Adapter Card - x8 / x16 Dual NVMe or AHCI M.2 SSD to PCI Express 3.0 - RAID & JBOD (PEX8M2E2) Samsung 970 EVO 500GB NVMe M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V7E500BW) (x2) - OS Drives (RAID 1) WD Gold 2TB (x3) - Data drives (Storage Spaces, or can I RAID 5 them?)  
      So two questions for all of you:
      If anything, what would you change and why? For the extra $278 (13% more), is the Gen 10 Plus worth it?  
      Thanks.

      Hey guys,
       
      As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
       
      So far my list is as follows:
      BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)  
      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
      Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)  
      Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
       
      I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.

      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?
