Shipping was free for the 2 i ordered last night from hp. I chose the 5-7 day option. But I also ordered last night through the student portal which sold out a long while ago.

I suspect HP will only be shipping to US addresses.

Not an HP fan but could not resist. Bought 3 of them from Office Depot. They show back ordered but they confirmed my purchase. Let see what happens.

LOL. OK, the game is on! Who can find a source that will actually ship?

I found another link someone posted on fatwallet saying they ordered theirs through the Busniess Section and was able to get the order to submit BUT it took a lot of patience as the HP site is apparently overwhelmed right now.

 

Here's the link:

HP is screwing the customer over on shipping at $21.87 for the cheapest shipping method. Guess you can't complain seeing as how it was $399 though.

 

This link worked. Got the transaction to process, patiently, for the 32GB sizes. Thanks for the link!

Just for giggles, I tried it. I never completed the buy, but I got a laugh how it sometimes says Price: 599.99, Originally 149.99 :)

It charged my credit card twice so I now expect an issue with the order. Man, if they had priced these right from the start, not $149 but lower than the ipad, they might have had some success!

holy smoke! I didn't realize HP is getting completely out of the PC business, not just WebOS.

      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

      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

      Wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction here. Have just replaced the CPU on my gen 8 microserver. Went according to the video above. Upon booting the server up, there is a clicking sound coming from the main board. Regular as clockwork, and the server isn't posting. Any ideas? I've swapped back to the G1610T CPU, but still the same issue. And just make it interesting, I don't have access to a monitor or keyboard.
