I have recently purchased a Gen 8 Microserver with plans to install OMV.
I did a bit of reading prior (and having also got a N54L) picked up a P222 Smart Array Raid card so I could also use RAID 5 on my 4 x 8Tb WD Red Plus drives.
I also had lying around an old 2.5" 160Gb WD Blue drive which I was going to use for the OS.
All the extra parts and cables have been installed (power from FDD to SATA for the HDD) and everything appeared ok.
I have configured the 160Gb drive as Raid 0 in SSA on the B120i internal controller. However when I attempt to install OMV, it comes up with an error message when installing the files onto this drive.
Is it possible to install an OS onto the ODD drive and boot from it. I have read elsewhere that I may need to use either a USB or microSD card as the boot device.
Does this drive need to be a SSD?
Since I have plugged the SAS cable into the P222 card, I was able to configure the drives in RAID 5, however, I am now getting a error under iLO saying System Health Degraded.
Upon further investigation, it appears to be from the P222 card, getting Error 1797 - Slot 1 Drive Array - Write-Back Cache Backup Previously failed, caching is disabled at startup.
When I open the SSA application, there is a Warning - 823 - The cache for Smart Array P222 in Slot 1 has been disabled because the backup operation failed.
I am unsure what could be causing this as the card has the cache and battery (both being detected). I have tried removing the cache and reinstalling it but didn't make a difference.
Is this a hardware issue? I only just purchased the card so will contact the seller to advise of a faulty card.
Any help on either of these would be greatly appreciated.
Is it possible for the P222 Raid Card to pass through storage on the Mircroserver Gen8 esxi 7.0u build?
I cannot get my VM to see a datastore I have created after rebuilding my Gen8 from Windows to ESXI 7.0u
Hope my query makes sense.
Good afternoon folks!
I have a question I was wondering if someone would know about. I have a Microserver Gen 8 with Vmware ESXI 7 currently installed on the MicroSD with AHCI enabled instead of RAID mode (dont find anything usefull in raid mode in my current setup other than booting from ODD, which I can just use as another Datastore instead).
With that context being said, Im trying to enable the Agentless Management Service from the ILO with the drivers on the Vmware ESXI 7, but unfortunetly after installing and trying to start the service with:
I get the following error:
/opt/hpe/ams/amshelper: error while loading shared libraries: libnicmgmt.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Makes sense following the Vmware ESXI HPE support matrix, since its only supported until Vmware ESXI 6.5U2 Pre-gen. But I´ve been reading lots of people having working setups doing the following:
Install Vmware ESXI HP Custom Image 6.5U2 -> Offline Update to Vmware ESXI 6.7.
I was wondering if installing HP Custom Image 6.5U2 with the drivers Agentless Management Service working and doing a full upgrade to ESXI 7.0 would do the trick, since its an upgrade not a clean install...so libraries should stay supporting older drivers installed.
Does this make any sense?? Has anyone gone trough this alredy?
***CRITICAL*** iLO 4 update available here. HPE requires users update to this version immediately. Potential vulnerabilities in network stack.
A potential security vulnerability has been identified in Integrated Lights-Out 5 (iLO 5), Integrated Lights-Out 4 (iLO 4), and Integrated Lights-Out 3 (iLO 3) firmware. The vulnerability could be remotely exploited to cause memory corruption.
HPE has released updated firmware to mitigate these vulnerabilities.
Hi everyone, today I wanted to install esxi 6.7 to try out the various functions, my question is the following, I have a server where I have installed esxi in an SSD and I have two other 4 tb disks so 8 tb total. I would like to make sure that when I create a virtual machine in this case I will install the various virtual machines in the SSD and use the two disks for data. So how can I do this? Thank you very much for those who can help me.
