After 2 days and no problems with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update I thought I'd report my conversion experiences.
The upgrade was offered immediately on N36, N54 and Gen8 microservers, which in my case are running Windows 10 Pro.
I accepted the 'in place' upgrade on 3 of my 4 machines ... with some trepidation since the last upgrade destroyed my shared folder configurations.
No problems of any sort thus far: only the splash screens for the new features in Edge makes one aware that things have changed.
'In place' with HDD's for the OS drive is .... very slow ... we're talking hours.
The 2nd of my Gen8 machines stalled mid way through upgrade ...but I don't think that was a server or Windows problem: when I reverted to the old OS version disk errors were reported so I suspect the OS disk is on its way out.
After repairing bad blocks I tried a clean reinstall. This is much faster (40 minutes) but one has to reinstall programs and reconfigure. Not a problem since this is only a file server, so only shared folders to reset. I'm glad this happened in one way ... good I think to remind oneself of how to handle a rebuild ... since I could not find the B120i driver file ... or indeed any other HP drivers for the Gen8, which should have been in my machine installation archive. Corrected.
The usual sites were reporting that the new version of Onedrive requires manual installation. Worked fine.
Time to explore the new features then.
I've had it in the back of my mind to try REFS via Storage Spaces for some time. Unfortunately this is another case of NASDAQ:MSFT going backwards for consumers: that option is now removed and only available in the new Windows Pro for Workstations edition. Which I won't be buying.
To be fair though the upgrade has worked without problems on LINX 1010 tablets and my old DELL PC, SAMSUNG laptop, so my initial reaction is to give MSFT the thumbs up.
Hope everyone else has good experiences too!
Unbox ML110 Gen10 at RESET Meetup
This is a video of the unboxing of the HPE ProLiant ML1100 Gen10 at the RESET Meetup #Indy2017 on September 30, 2017. More to follow in the Forums in the future.
I made stupid mistake and bought gen10 microserver because it looked nice.
Hardware is like this:
Samsung 850 pro 256 for OS win10 pro
2x wd red 4tb in SW raid
1x wd green 3b
It is loud as hell when booting and very irritating after that.
There is just too much noise from fan for quiet home office.
Is there anything i can do about it?
Please help my ears bleed!
