Drive Performance on N40L MicroServer

Recommended Posts

Joe_Miner

Now you have me looking at these drives....not a bad price for 500 gig 10k RPM

http://www.goharddrive.com/White-Label-VelociRaptor-500GB-10K-RPM-32MB-Cache-p/g01-0686.htm

 

To clarify, these would be for my VM's replacing the current WD Black 1TB......and yea, I run that many VM's at one time.

 

If you order from goharddrivebe sure to check performance check them ASAP -- you have ~ 15 days from when you recieve them to get an automatic RMA and send em back for replacement -- they are nice folks to work with but you do need to check what you got 

 

SchoonDoggy has been a very bad influence on us all.....................  Look over at what performance Jim is getting with drives SchoonDoggy has pointed him to....................

I've ordered from them in the past and never (knock on word) had an issue.

Dang JM; them's SSD speeds :)

 

 

@ikon -- I thought you'd like to see this -- it was surprising to me that when I placed the same 3 VR's in my Z77X-UD5H attached to 3 of the onboard Intel SATA II Ports #2, 3, & 4 -- all in RAID0 set up in Software via Disk Management in Server 2012 -- I got substantially better READ & WRITE Transfer Performance:

This is very nice!  It's telling me that for one thing I can use the MicroServer for testing but expect better performance moving the configuration up a notch to the Z77!!

Can't believe I forgot to post this last month -- This makes for a very nice VM drive in my Z77X-UD5H --

      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

      I installed a BU50N Blu-ray 4K drive in my HPE ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer.  Worked out well, I'm using PowerDVD13 -- I had to restart the "Machine" several times before it saw the ODD but "Machine" finally figured it out.

      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
