Proxmox and HBA Passthrough on Gen8 MicroServer

Recommended Posts

E3000

Hey guys,

 

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

I have found this Advisory from HP, detailing why this no longer works and how to fix it. Does anyone know if there is any such working solution for Gen8 Microserver?

No, I wish I had. I used the advisory information with circa 10 PCI Slots though it has only 1: no success.
It would really interesting to know if it's possible to find a solution to replicate the ESXI way to pass-through in Linux.

I am convinced that it is possible and hopefully I will find a way to get this working! So far I have been unsuccessful and despite the age of the Gen8 Microserver I am very surprised this issue hasn’t been resolved and documented all over the place, as these machines are still very popular.

      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      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):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.

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?
