This part^

 

I've looked around online and everywhere is selling it for about the price of a brand new Gen8.

I think my SATA cable on it has gone bad as the internal drives connected to the onboard header keep getting I/O errors in FreeNAS and detaching themselves, I've tried re-seating the cable, sometimes it helps other times one of the drives seems to work fine but another one doesn't, re-seat it, fix the dodgy drive and the working drive is now dodgy etc.

 

I'm in the UK, willing to pay for shipping from anywhere though if you've got a working spare lying around.

 

Thanks

Where abouts are you chap, I dont use my Gen8 anymore its just sat on the shelf behind me, could borrow mine if you're within driving distance, see if it works before you fork out on another part?

Well, I accidentally knocked the server off the table it was on, was sure I'd broken it, but after that the drives work perfectly fine..

 

I was getting this on 4x brand new WD Red 6TB drives during a scrub: https://pastebin.com/raw/6j1GsGUH, post-scrub not long after I had this which crashed the system and required a hard reset: https://pastebin.com/raw/w1rwLVkw

 

Speaking of parts though I have an HP 652297-001 DVD-RW for the Gen8 for sale if anyone is interested:

I have a backplane left over from a replacement. Can't tell for sure if it is working 100% but it would cost you only the shipping cost. Otherwise I would put the backplane in the bin because I have no other use for it.

Hey, only just seen this... And see you got it working in a most unorthodox manner!

 

Anyway, I'm on the Wirral too (Moreton), if you ever need anything else.

 

Cheers!

I went ahead and bought a whole new base unit, £170 with a £50 rebate, not bad, and it seems slightly updated/changed? The front panel has a different HP logo (some green) on it etc, noticed the psu cable plug is different too. Haven't opened it up yet because the drives aren't disconnecting anymore so I'm just leaving it be for now but I'll eventually move everything over to it.

 

Thanks though!

That description sounds more like the Gen10?

 

I was looking forward to the Gen10, but it's not a proper server in the ilk of the Gen8 (no ILO etc)

Here's some pics comparing the two, seems like very minor cosmetic changes to the outer case
