N40L - Update for Meltdown and Spectre Security Vulnerability

Recommended Posts

rhbkweb

Hi all,

 

As you may all know, in the last days where discovered 2 big security flaws on CPUs named Meltdown and Spectre (https://spectreattack.com/)

 

I have a HP Microserver N40L and after search the HP support site I did not find any information about how and if HP will release any patch or update to the N40L in order to fix this security issues.

 

Does anyone has any news or information about how HP is handling this?

 

Edit: Just found the HP page about this at: http://h22208.www2.hpe.com/eginfolib/securityalerts/SCAM/Side_Channel_Analysis_Method.html and I don't see any mention to HP microserver N40L

 

Thanks

Great question - came here to find out if I'm likely to experience any W10 update issues on my micro server.

 

Be great if you post anything else you find

I have applied the Windows 10 cumulative update to N40, N54 and GEN8 microservers without issue ...

... taking the OS to build level 16299.192 ...

... seems like this could cause a double-digit reduction in performance from Microsoft reports.

Im not using my N40L with Windows 10. On your case with Windows 10, the windows update is just one part of the solution. The only true way to fix the issue is with a hardware/firmware update from HP.

 

I found one more link about this and still no mention to the N40L:

https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05869091

 

And I also open a post of the official HP enterprise forum. Until now no response:

https://community.hpe.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-Netservers/N40L-Update-for-Meltdown-and-Spectre-Security-Vulnerability/td-p/6993166

 

Anyone else know more?

      Hi I am new to forum.
       
      I have an HPE 40L Microserver and would like to upgrade the motherboard to something a bit more modern. 
       
      From what is can find on this topic it would appear that the motherboard is mini-ITX like but not exactly. Has anyone ever resolved upgrading this with something new that works or should I just replace the server?
       
      Thx in advance

      Hi! I am planning to buy a Microserver Gen10 Plus E-2224 for a small business, and want to add as much disk space as possible. I already have the older Gen10 with 4x4TB HDDs in RAID10 (effective capacity 8TB) and a 2TB SSD in the 5th slot (which is missing on the new G10 plus). The max stated capacity on the HPE site seems to be limited with their own enterprise HDDs, so I'd like to see if I can go for bigger disks. The server would be running a sort of an application which collects lots of data from devices, and the data tends to grow over time (1-2TB per year), and I'd prefer not to worry about the capacity for the next several years.
       
      My primary concern is the max capacity (max single drive capacity + max total RAID capacity with the Smart Array S100i) I can reliably install. If possible, some actual setup which has been shown to work with 32GB RAM and its limited 180W power supply? I was also planning on upgrading it to 32GB. If I am buying a 16GB RAM server, does this means it has both slots occupied with 8GB modules and I need a 2x32GB kit? For the os SSD, I won't have the PCIe slot available because we need to insert a certain GPS PCIe card that the server uses for time synchronization. So, if I want an SSD, this means I should use something like 1xSSD + 3xHDD in RAID5, instead of RAID10?  
      I've been planning to install 16TB Seagate Exos X16 drives, with rated max operating power at 10W (6.3W for random reads/writes). Does this seam feasible?
       
      Thanks a lot for your tips!

      Does anyone know if it is possible to get Agentless Management Service (AMS) running on Debian/Ubuntu Linux? It is always showing as Not Available in the iLO page and I have only ever seen this active in Windows.

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

      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.
