You see where they think it might be available in late June 2013?  Better clean off a new spot on the workbench!

I could see 2 of these in the house: one for UTM (Untangle, pfSense, etc.) and one for WHS2011 or WSE2012. But, I don't want a rackmount form factor; I want the normal see with the N40L & N54L.

Dual NIC's and iLo are nice.

If the C204 is at the core;


Only USB 2.0, unless they add a controller for USB 3.

The C204 has 2 SATA III and 4 SATA II.

It also has an integrated Gigabit NIC, so the dual Broadcom is a bit confusing, unless the integrated NIC is the iLo NIC?

The D630T;


Could support 32GB memory.

I could see 2 of these in the house: one for UTM (Untangle, pfSense, etc.) and one for WHS2011 or WSE2012.

Why would you use a MicroServer for UTM? 

Seems like a waste of much of the servers features.

Under management it says iLO4 with dedicated iLO RJ-45 port so I don't think the Dual NIC are including the iLO NIC.

They also mention HP B120i Raid and 2x6.0Gbps SATA III ports which lines up to your comment on the C204 only have 2 SATA III.  The 4x SATA II are probably used by the drive cage (assuming it has another 4 bay cage).

Wouldn't it be nice if HP actually listened in on forums like this to help them determine product direction?

The existing MicroServer chassis is good, but if they could come up with a way to fit two 2.5" drives under the 5.25" bay,,,,,,,

      I have been running the WHS1 pack 3 for many years.  Unfortunately it is no longer working.  I got a Proliant microserver Gen10 hoping it will run it but was unable to install the software.  The software should run on most older PCs?

      Does anyone have the WHS1 running on the Gen10?  Also my WHS1 iso is Pack 1.  If I manage to install the Pack 1 can I find on the web the upgrade to pack 3?  Would I be forever stuck at Pack 1?  Any advice would be appreciated.

      Hey guys,
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys, 
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?

      I’m looking for the latest Proliant SPP for Gen. 8 servers. 
      I’ve got a MicroServer, a DL360e and a DL380e which I’d love to update.
      Has anyone got the latest SPP that wouldn’t mind sharing?
      Thank you!

      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.. ;-(
