ESXi 5 on MicroServer?

Recommended Posts

Yes, try another stick. I've found the Kingston GT101's to be reliable as boot sticks.

Interesting question (and I agree on trying another USB stick, the Kingston GT100 works well too, used it to flash the BIOS):

 

Has anyone found a way to get the HP Remote Access Controller to work with ESXi? I've heard tell it's not compatible, which makes sense; I can't think of a way you could connect to individual VMs through it, which would limit access to a VCenter console.

If you have vCenter....why do you need anything else?

OK how many VMs are you running on your N40L? My second one is now installed. It's not the memory I am worried about but the CPU.

CPU is fine.....it's the memory as long as you don't fire them up all at once.

Thanks. I keep mine handy, often taking it with me, since it's so small and easy to transport.

Another option you could consider is the Zalman VE200. I use mine all the time. I reviewed it here: http://homeservershow.com/review-zalman-ve200-external-hard-drivevirtual-drive-enclosure.html

Typical me not to stay with the forums. But thanks ikon that is some sharp hardware. And I need that to add to my hardware list!

      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.

      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
