Like I said on twitter, I pulled the trigger. I always shop during times of emergency! SUPER ROUTER Time.

It will make a very good one! Just make sure you get a second NIC for it. Check Joe Miner's specs.

The Newegg shell shocker deal on the Microserver is back. This time for $289.99. Hurry...the deal won't last long.

Wow!

 

That would also make a nice WHS2011 box or a nice S2012E box

 

I noticed too that WHS2011 is on sale for $39.99 with Promo Code EMCYTZT2438

Joe,

 

What is the model # of your Intel dual nic card? TY

 

In the section NIC Installation in http://homeservershow.com/hp-microserver-n40l-build-and-bios-modification.html

 

I have a link to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106015 which works very well in the MicroServer.

 

I've also used http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106121 which also works very well.

 

With both I've never had to go looking for drivers -- they work right from the start when the OS is loaded. They both should be on sale soon.

For me, that's an important feature. Searching for drivers is a real PITA.

True, Since I will be running Linux on it for the super router. Don't think the N40L has the guts to be used as a VM Host.

 

TY for the referrals!

Don't think the N40L has the guts to be used as a VM Host.

 

 

Been using it as a Hyper-V host with no problem.

At the meet-up I had 4 VM's running on it: WHS-V1, WHS-2011, S2012E, and Ubuntu --- S2012SSstd was my Host.

I've also had 2008R2, S2012DC, S2012std, and Win8pro all running as Hyper-V Hosts with anywhere from 2 to 5 child partitions running on the N40L.

See SBS Diva's Play Box for HyperV

      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

      I installed a BU50N Blu-ray 4K drive in my HPE ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer.  Worked out well, I'm using PowerDVD13 -- I had to restart the "Machine" several times before it saw the ODD but "Machine" finally figured it out.

      Hi there,
      I hope this topic fits here just right.
      So a few days ago, I moved my Microserver Gen8 to a friend's place and resetted it.
      When we set it up with new disks, the raid-creation in OpenMediaVault (Debian 9.6) failed.
      `smartctl` tests passed just fine though and vendor-tools also didn't report any drive errors.
      What happened?
      - I start the Raid creation via `mdadm` and after a while (random blocks and times), it fails and the second disk seems to fail (e.g. sda and sdb are creating a raid, then sdb gets "kicked out" and reread as e.g. sdd, sometimes even with only a few GB of space instead of 3TB).
      I tried attaching the second disk on ata2 and ata3, but it keeps failing. The one on ata1 works just fine though.
      I tried different disks and vendors, but get the same results.
      There are some errors in `dmesg`, but I don't know what they mean. I pasted them here: https://pastebin.com/raw/XASQJ6cy
      What I did here: I stopped the raid to re-create it, but then didn't do anything for a while and the error still came up.

      Can someone help me with this? (As a wild guess, I'd say that somethings wrong with the SATA connections at least on ata2 and ata3).

      Thanks in advance
