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

      As I have decided to make some improvements on my afermarket fan controller I am trying to try implementing thermal control or mobo PWM control of additional fans, but before that I'm in a great need to inderstand how much fan count the controller should be ready to support. As this forum doesn't support polls I have nothing to do but ask you to reply on this topic.
       
      What I would be thankful to know:
      1. How many fans have you installed in your Microserver.
      2. What fans do you use (size, 3/4-pin connector) and where are they located, also what are they cooling.
      3. What way do you power these fans?
       
      Thank you in advance for your feedback!

      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.
