My Microserver Arrived Today!

Recommended Posts

So, after listening to the podcast last week, I decided to pull the trigger and get the HP ProLiant Microserver. It just arrived today and I am installing WHS 2011 on it via USB.

 

I have installed and used WHS 2011 on VMs but not on an actual machine.

 

I am thinking I will keep my version one server still though for sure.

 

So my journey begins!

It's funny how before I got to these forums I hadn't ever heard of HP microservers or WHS. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I live in Finland. :(

Congratulations!

 

Tell us the details of the build and don't hesitate to ask questions. Lots of good info in the MicroServer sub-forum!

 

I think you'll enjoy your new little MicroServer -- I'm certainly having a blast with mine!!

Maybe we should form, "MicroNation" for the HP users! A splinter cell.

 

LOL -- it's fun for sure!

 

Just hope I can resist the next sub-$200 sale :) -- could be tough explaining two MicroServers in the house :)

 

Edit: there's a certain irony in reading your "MicroNation" next to your picture of a Saturn 5 !!

If there is another one this weekend...I may put off eating and go ahead buy it.

I could stand to lose a few pounds but it would be living in a tent in the backyard that would be inconvenient -- I'd have to run some extension cords to power my MicroServers :)

I got mine from New Egg. It was $269...not a hot deal or anything, but I couldn't resist. I also bought 8GB's of RAM for it. Then I have 3 1TB drives that I will stick in it. Luckily I got those before the flood problem... and they were cheap.

 

The other week someone suggested getting a SSD for it...I might, but we'll see what happens here.

 

I installed WHS 2011 via USB. Worked great. I was going to start migrating my data, but with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview today...well, will get back to the server in a few days.
