ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Links

Looks like the micro server may be relevant now. On your chart you indicated the i5 was a possible upgrade so that's good but it will depend on how much memory the board supports.

 

In the QuickSpecs HP certifies it for 16GB RAM.  Check the Additional Options on HP Storage Contollers -- check the specs on the P222 Controller -- Very interesting!

It has 2 slots and HP says 16 GB max. I am sure someone will try 32GB.

2x16 GB DIMMS will be hard to find for someone to test with.  Not to mention the cost, ~$275

Exactly, but I am sure someone will try it if they can find the RAM. A lot of the people that want to use it as an ESXi lab are moaning about it only having 16 GB of RAM.

Most will have either a N40 or N54 or both....so use that one in conjunction.

Hopefully. It will be interesting to find out if it can be done.

Thanks for the responses. I am viewing on my phone so it was too hard to find what I was after.

It seems great. Is it possible to replace the CPU with E3-1220L V2 or E3-1265L V2?

That all depends on how much HP locks down the BIOS. The CPU's you have listed are 1155 pin so the match the G8 MicroServer. The G2020T that comes in the new MS has a power draw of 35W. The E3-1220L V2 is 17W, the E3-1265L V2 is 45W. If HP runs the same BIOS across this set of servers, the CPU's that are listed for the ML310e may work as long as they are not to high of a power draw;

Processor

NOTE: HT indicates that the processor model supports Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology.
NOTE: DDR3 speed is the maximum memory speed of the processor. Actual memory speed may depend on
the quantity and type of DIMMs installed (options for 1600, 1333, 1066MHz).
 
Only time will tell, but the E3-1220Lv2 is listed for the ML310e.

Enough with the speculation....who is going to be the first to buy one?

      Good afternoon,
       
      Newbie here, so please be gentle with me!
       
      I have an 18 month old Gen8 server bought new but now out of warranty, so limited access to HPE updates.  My Gen8 has 8Gb memory, Recently added Xeon 1220v2, standard disk controller (122i ) and 4 off 3.5” drives giving 6Tb of storage under storage spaces.  OS on SATA HDD  sitting in ODD space as recommended on here.  I was running Win10 Pro, but after upgrading processor and trying to update drivers with Intelligent Provisioning, I fell foul of the expired warranty.  I also lost my printer driver for HP laser jet and my sound drivers (usb connected sound card).
       
      To cut a long and painful journey a bit shorter, I am re-installing Win10 Pro from DVD, with licence key under IP.  My question as someone without warranty, but with a copy of the SPP download (ISO?), how do I install the various drivers needed from the SPP and do I need to update the firmware for the Xeon processor, if so how?  I read on here that the original 2014 J06 firmware does not have a thermal solution for Xeon processor and ILO shows high temps for some components.
       
      I am reasonable knowledgeable in Windows of old and have Rufus to create bootable usb sticks, but unsure how to get from SPP ISO image as downloaded (871795_001_spp-2017.04.0-SPP2017040.2017_0420.14).
       
      Any help from experienced gurus much appreciated!
       
      regards
       
      Richardracer.

      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

      Well, I finally did it and got a 4K monitor and have attached it to my MicroServer.
       
      Here is my list of devices that I worked with:
       
      4K LG Monitor
      ·         LG32UD59-B 32” 4K UHD LED Monitor, 3840x2160, HDCP 2.2, HDMI, DisplayPort, AMD FreeSync, On-Screen Control
      HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 X3421
      ·         8GB RAM  - Stock
      ·         Windows 10 Pro x64
      ·         OS Drive: SATA Port 1 – Samsung 840 Pro 256GB loaded in Icy Dock’s EZConvert in Drive Bay 1
      ·         4K LG Monitor attached with DP cable – NOTE: 4K LG Monitor was also attached with HDMI cable via: “Active DisplayPort to HDMI 4K Adapter, Benfei DP to HDMI Ultra HD Converter”   -- both attachments seemed to work well.
      ·         SYBA SD-CM-UAUD USB 2.0 External Stereo Audio Adapter
      ·         External speakers with subwoofer
      ·         Logitech K120 Keyboard with mouse
      ·         Pioneer slim external USB 3.0 Blu-Ray BDR-XD05S
      ·         CyberLink PowerDVD 18 Ultra
       
      The monitor seems to work well in 4K mode with both the DP cable connected directly to the MS as well as the HDMI cable using a DP to HDMI converter that I used last year when working on the Beta unit.  So far so good.  
       
      Here's a video of my experience
