I just ordered the HP Microserver N40L, now what?

Okay, I gave in as I really want to get pfSense up and running. I will also be in the market for a 16 port switch and hope that will be enough. Anyone in the market for some 5 port gig switches???????

 

I'll put together a list of things for sale so I can start to trim down some inventory (translate...raise some $$ for another Microserver!)

for me I am going to probably order the 80 Dollar management card, but want to see the cost with corp discount or through a HP contact from church.

 

Does that card ONLY work on HP boxes?

Yeah there is a special slot similar to a dell drac (dell remote access card). Basically a ipkvm on steroids.

And the MicroServer has that slot?

      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
