And fantastic! If only I could build that and get it to cool properly.

I don't have one but I'd love to get my hot little hands on one...or three. However the FFO (family financial officer) says nay-nay to me having any more computers, considering in the house (including my work-issued laptop), there are as follows -- generically listed, no model numbers since I don't know them offhand:

 

HP EX490 - media streaming and file shares

HP EX487 - backups

HP laptop - SharePoint 2010

Dell XPS 710 desktop - SQL Server 2008 R2

HP dv7 multimedia laptop - my daughter's PC

HP EliteBook 8540w - work-issued PC

HP desktop - Windows 8

HP dv9 multimedia laptop - my personal PC

HP multimedia laptop - my wife's PC

HP desktop - Exchange 2010

iPad (1st generation) 32 GB WiFi

HP TouchPad 32 GB dual-boot with Android and webOS

 

Personally I think a few MicroServers would fit in nicely with these. :)

Absolutely! less power and noise for sure! plus, they're a nice little fit to hold up books I hear.

      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
