I have to admit to having 5.

1. WHS 2011

2. pfSense

3. Web Server (internal for development, not on the internet)

4. Test server running whatever drive is in the bay. (or drives)

5. Another test/spare server. I justify this on as a ready spare when one of the other ones fails. But the reality is I just like the server,

Have 2 at the house, 2 at the church, 1 at work

Church is AD and file server with a backup ad and file server backup

Home is Openfiler for iSCSI backup for both church and home

Second one is my CommodoreVision box (Long live my C64)/Tivoli Storage Manager backup

Work is my offsite backup for the house again a TSM box

 

You guys know a good deal! I salute you! :)

More like a church with 0 funding for IT, was able to get them donated through a contact then I bought 2 for baby sans.

 

They need to team with lego and we could use them as building blocks

I wonder what the R-factor is? Which side do we put the moisture barrier? So many possibilities!

 

Too bad we can't get them in different colors -- I think I'd like a nice Lego Red!

      Hi 
      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.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(

      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
