Damn!  I'm going to have to buy that even though I don't need it right now.  I know!  I'll use it for testing!

Just in case you don't know here is some relevant information about that monitor.  I have seen it in action.  It is not really as sharp as some IPS monitors at that price point even.  It will blow you away if you are used to the older monitors. Anyway here is the information.  Display port ony please!  I don't know if Dual Link DVI-D does supports that high resolution.  Do any of you?  I guess I am a little confused.


In the description on Amazon it says:
- Supported Inputs: HDMI 1.4a, Display Port 1.2, Dual Link DVI-D, VGA (D-Sub)

On the bottom of the "Quick setup guide" there's a "Remarks" section:
- HDMI and VGA does not support 2560x1440

So it doesn't really support HDMI 1.4a (it should be able to display 2560x1440).

DisplayPort does work at 2560x1440.

Dual Link DVI supports at least 2560x1600. I'm using it one of my 30" Dell UltraSharps

If I was buying a 27" IPS today, I would get the DVI only version from Monoprice, $325.27 + $18.47 shipping;


or if you want all the ports;

A Dual Link DVI may not be an option in some situations. I had to ensure my 2nd 30" monitor had DisplayPort because my video card won't do 2 Dual Link monitors.

      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.

      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?
