Yeah on the back, I don't know about everyone else but I think that's enough for me :P  I don't really even use USB 3

I'm using it more & more. At the moment I have 3 in constant use: Server Backup enclosure, NearLine enclosure, OffSite enclosure. If I want to connect any other USB3 devices, I have 1 free port left.

You could always get a hub, as long as you don't stick too many on then it shouldn't affect the performance too much

The 3 backups run pretty much at the same time.

Are they just single drives? or RAID enclosures?

2 JBOD enclosures, each with 4 drives, and a single drive for the Server Backup.

Are they maxing out the USB 3.0?

I haven't actually checked. What I can say is they are definitely going faster than USB2. I haven't really noticed any appreciable difference from when I had them connected via eSATA.

 

I doubt they're going a 5Gbps. After all, hardly any of these technologies operate at their max rated speeds in the real world. Still, they're doing OK for me.

The support page for the MS G8 is looking good;

On the manuals page I was having issues reading the 'User Guide' and the 'Maintenance and Service Guide', downloading them straight to my drive and opening them manually seemed to fix the issue;

      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

      Hi Guys,
       
      New member here, some great info on this forum so hopefully a few of you have experience with the Intel E3-1260L CPU running in a HP Microserver Gen8? 
       
      I know for sure it will work as I’ve seen some good threads on here but can anyone tell me if the upgrade made a noticeable difference in the fan speeds and noise?  
       
      Im looking at putting two Gen8’s in a living room in place of an old N54L so cautious of too much noise..

      Any experience & suggestions for a 4k BluRay Optical drive that would fit in the top of the MicroServer?

      Hi
      I have problem to rebuilding a disk for Windows Server 2016 Essentials  C:\ disk. I have replace a disk with same diskspace (160GB) and running with RAID1. 
      Have restart the server and have select F2 for rebuilding and the server wont rebuild the disk, I have now got the same message, 
       
      776 Logical Drive 1 is queued for rebuilding.
       
      Where can I found the logfiles for troubleshooting ? and what can I do further with that problem  ?
       
      Thanks in advance 😉
