Help with Freenas on GEN 8 Microserver


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

       Was hoping someone with experience with Freenas might be able to help. I set up Freenas on my gen8 and everything was working great. Freenas was installed with a network cable plugged in to the Ilo port. All was fine until I needed to re-arrange my office. Shutdown the gen8, unplugged the cable. moved everything, plugged it back in. Now, network interfaces will not connect. Can't ping, etc,.

I tried to re-configure the interface from the shell (through Ilo). Tried static, dhcp, tried some tip I read re-  disableing msi and msix. No dice. I have an N54L running as a DC. I also tried deleting and re-adding DNS records, so far, to no avail.

Anyone deal with this situation before?

If this is not an appropriate question for this forum, please excuse me. I was trying to avoid signing up to yet another forum (freenas).


Any help greatly appreciated!

Hi, I am running Nas4Free on my HP MS Gen8, so it is very close to FreeNAS. My feeling is that software/OS is not the cause for your problem. Did you checked the LAN cable, wall outlet, router/switch ports, etc.?

      I have been running the WHS1 pack 3 for many years.  Unfortunately it is no longer working.  I got a Proliant microserver Gen10 hoping it will run it but was unable to install the software.  The software should run on most older PCs?

      Does anyone have the WHS1 running on the Gen10?  Also my WHS1 iso is Pack 1.  If I manage to install the Pack 1 can I find on the web the upgrade to pack 3?  Would I be forever stuck at Pack 1?  Any advice would be appreciated.

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

      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?

      I’m looking for the latest Proliant SPP for Gen. 8 servers. 
      I’ve got a MicroServer, a DL360e and a DL380e which I’d love to update.
      Has anyone got the latest SPP that wouldn’t mind sharing?
      Thank you!

      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.. ;-(
