Recommended Posts

Any experience & suggestions for a 4k BluRay Optical drive that would fit in the top of the MicroServer?

I’m curious as well and what software is used with it.

Looks like BU40N and BU50N are popular 9.5mm drives that appear to support 4k.

Software for playback or ripping?

Got one on order as well as a 32" 4k monitor -- I'm sure the grandkids will love it

What size of screw fits this hole -- in order to hold the ODD Clip in place in the Gen10?

I think the hole is for an M3 countersunk, but the Gen8 ODD bracket does not work in the Gen10. I tried mounting the bracket upside down after drilling a small hole in it that aligns to the mounting hole in the chassis. I used a nylon screw to secure it, so as to not have any metal dust. It works, but it is not something I can manufacture. There are 3D printer plans for brackets that will work.

Looks like a M4 is close though a little loose -- M5 is too big.

      FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.

      I need to update the firmware on a HP Proliant Microserver Remote Access Card installed in my N40L.
       
      Can someone please explain what I need to do to create a boot device that will update the firmware on the Remote Access Card?
       
      Thanks

      I installed a BU50N Blu-ray 4K drive in my HPE ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer.  Worked out well, I'm using PowerDVD13 -- I had to restart the "Machine" several times before it saw the ODD but "Machine" finally figured it out.

      Hi there,
      I hope this topic fits here just right.
      So a few days ago, I moved my Microserver Gen8 to a friend's place and resetted it.
      When we set it up with new disks, the raid-creation in OpenMediaVault (Debian 9.6) failed.
      `smartctl` tests passed just fine though and vendor-tools also didn't report any drive errors.
      What happened?
      - I start the Raid creation via `mdadm` and after a while (random blocks and times), it fails and the second disk seems to fail (e.g. sda and sdb are creating a raid, then sdb gets "kicked out" and reread as e.g. sdd, sometimes even with only a few GB of space instead of 3TB).
      I tried attaching the second disk on ata2 and ata3, but it keeps failing. The one on ata1 works just fine though.
      I tried different disks and vendors, but get the same results.
      There are some errors in `dmesg`, but I don't know what they mean. I pasted them here: https://pastebin.com/raw/XASQJ6cy
      What I did here: I stopped the raid to re-create it, but then didn't do anything for a while and the error still came up.

      Can someone help me with this? (As a wild guess, I'd say that somethings wrong with the SATA connections at least on ata2 and ata3).

      Thanks in advance
