Use TerraCopy or RoboCopy to speed up the transfer

LOLs I already have Teracopy ... and love it!!! :) It's not so much the transfer speeds as the organisation that I need to fix and there is no software on the planet that can work that one out! ;)

I use the standard folder with the addition of a software folder and that is organized usually by the Application mode (AD, Antivirus, File Copy, etc) ISO images have their own sub-folder

hense the reason for the 2 duel nics


Hi yodafett, your post caught my eye....


May I ask if you managed to install 2 of the EXPI9402PTBLK nics into the microserver?


I would like to do the same, but the HP specs suggest the dual nic card will not fit into the pciex1 socket, only the other x16 slot. I would be really happy if you can report that the same card fits in both sockets and then I might install 2 of them!! That indeed would make a "super router" :) Very exciting!

      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.

      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.
