Well, I finally did it and got a 4K monitor and have attached it to my MicroServer.
Here is my list of devices that I worked with:
4K LG Monitor
· LG32UD59-B 32” 4K UHD LED Monitor, 3840x2160, HDCP 2.2, HDMI, DisplayPort, AMD FreeSync, On-Screen Control
HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 X3421
· 8GB RAM - Stock
· Windows 10 Pro x64
· OS Drive: SATA Port 1 – Samsung 840 Pro 256GB loaded in Icy Dock’s EZConvert in Drive Bay 1
· 4K LG Monitor attached with DP cable – NOTE: 4K LG Monitor was also attached with HDMI cable via: “Active DisplayPort to HDMI 4K Adapter, Benfei DP to HDMI Ultra HD Converter” -- both attachments seemed to work well.
· SYBA SD-CM-UAUD USB 2.0 External Stereo Audio Adapter
· External speakers with subwoofer
· Logitech K120 Keyboard with mouse
· Pioneer slim external USB 3.0 Blu-Ray BDR-XD05S
· CyberLink PowerDVD 18 Ultra
The monitor seems to work well in 4K mode with both the DP cable connected directly to the MS as well as the HDMI cable using a DP to HDMI converter that I used last year when working on the Beta unit. So far so good.
Here's a video of my experience
Any experience & suggestions for a 4k BluRay Optical drive that would fit in the top of the MicroServer?
I have problem to rebuilding a disk for Windows Server 2016 Essentials C:\ disk. I have replace a disk with same diskspace (160GB) and running with RAID1.
Have restart the server and have select F2 for rebuilding and the server wont rebuild the disk, I have now got the same message,
776 Logical Drive 1 is queued for rebuilding.
Where can I found the logfiles for troubleshooting ? and what can I do further with that problem ?
Thanks in advance 😉
I also posted this on the HPE forums.
Just bought my first HP Microserver and got a decent deal on a Gen10 x3421. I am using a USB key to try and install either CentOS or RHEL 7 on it and neither install sees any of the disks in the front slots. I am using 1TB WD Caviar Green drives. I have also tried a Seagate drive but nothing seems to work.
I have gone back and forth between EUFI and Legacy hoping that would help. Nothing.
I am currently installing on a 500B USB drive and hope to see if the drives are visible when I fully boot.
I also looked through the drivers and firmware and did not see anything directly related to my problem. I was going to download the SPP but couldn't igure out how to register my system manually to allow me to download the SPP.
Am I missing anything obvious or does the system not yet support RHEL 7 or CentOS 7?
Thanks for any information.
I have a HP Microserver Gen 8 upgraded to Xeon E3 1265 v2, 16Gb RAM, SSD 256 Gb on the ODD Port and 2 x 3 TB WD RED disks
In the SSD I have an ESXi 6.5 U2 (HP custom image) version installed (driver downgraded to 5.5.088 from 5.5.102) and the WD Disks are in RAID 1 for datastore of vmware related files
I just bought a HP 410 Raid Controller with 1gb FWBC and battery
I did read a lot about this subject, I know that isn't possible to be monitored by ILO 4....but I would like if someone can confirm me my thoughts about how to made this migration
1) Plug HP410 on the mobo
2) Connect Cable used in the disks WD to the lower port of the P410
3) Connect ODD cable used for the SSD Disk in the upper port of the p410
4) Turn On microserver and enter in the SSA and check if arrays created in the b120i are visible for the p410
5) If is OK, restart
- I have that to do something for to boot the SSD that has ESXi installation when boot up server?
- Driver 5.5.088 hpvsa will see the datastores on the p410 without no action from my side?
- Must I disable b120i on bios or is possible co-live with the P410
It'll be very apreciated the help
