Recommended Posts

I wanted to start a thread for all of us to monitor the HP Touchpad sales in the coming days. If the prices that have been leaked are real I'll be picking one up. $99 for 16Gig, $149 for 32Gig. This is a good price for a nice mobile movie screen.

 

I'll be following this thread through the weekend so if you guys hear or find anything let us all know!

I realize HP is no longer making the Touchpad, but for 100.00 dollars it's a great couch toy. I picked up 2 for 183.88 with tax & shipping. If you use the coupon save30hp they will take 30 off of 150.00 or more. Gonna give 1 to my parents to play with.http://www.fatwallet...-deals/1119462/

 

I'm guessing in a few months someone over at XDAdevelopers.com will find a way to port android over to it. If not for 99.00 dollars it will make a great internet device.

Yah, looks like they sold out already, that was quick. I'm sure more will come in stock as retailers return their excess inventory. Guess I got lucky ordering when I did.

 

I feel pretty bad for all the folks on ebay who have an active bid out there on a Touchpad. Seems like there are a lot of Touchpads with 1 or 2 bids in the 250+ range. Hopefully then don't realize it's now on sale for 99.00

Well they have disappeared from the BestBuy site. Either they returned them all, or readying the price drop?

Saw this tip on usingwindowshomerver.com and just scored one. Go to microcenter and when

you put it in your cart, the firesale price will show up.

      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.

      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?
