ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Links

Recommended Posts

Hello! I wanted to ask you some things about installing a Windows 10 pro on the G8 microserver with a p410 controller.

I would like to be able to install this operating system, but I am looking for the drivers for this controller on the HP website, and I can not find the driver. The system is completely updated by the SSP, and at the start of the system it indicates that the driver of the controller is currently 6.64. I do not know if to install Windows 10 Windows Server 2016 drivers are missing.

Both in Windows 10 and in Windows server 2016, if you create an array of four disks from the intelligent provisioning, the two operating systems will detect it as a logical unit and you can not see the disks individually, right?

Thank you very much and greetings!
Server 2016 drivers should work in Windows 10.

Hello, thanks for answering.

But basically I'm looking for the driver that would be needed for the p410 when you are installing Windows server 2016. I have searched inside the HP website, in drivers and software, but for server 2016 there are 154 drivers and I have reviewed them all and found this:

Is this the driver required for server 2016 to detect the disk drive during installation?

A greeting!

That is not the driver.

When you say 'detect disks', are you looking for the application to setup arrays?

If so that would be SSA or the older version is ACU. 

Do you have Windows 10 installed on the server?

No, I still do not have any Windows system installed, I will most certainly install it next Tuesday (Windows server 2016) but I am preparing the necessary drivers.

I already have the network drivers and others, but I need the most important so that at the beginning of the installation, have the right driver for Windows to detect the array of the p410. Thank you!

Wonderful if anyone can point me in the right direction here. Have just replaced the CPU on my gen 8 microserver. Went according to the video above. Upon booting the server up, there is a clicking sound coming from the main board. Regular as clockwork, and the server isn't posting. Any ideas? I've swapped back to the G1610T CPU, but still the same issue.

I bought two, and the total was 110€ using the Bhiner agent.

I sent them to Portugal using Belgium Post and I didn't pay any import taxes.

 

The original price of 199 Chinese Yuan is about 30$. I know that some sellers send to the United States, but I don't know if this one does.

I used the agent that buys the product and receives it in it's warehouse and then sends it to you.

My total cost for each heatsink (and a 4$ fan adaptor) was 55€. But I had to pay 16$ to post the item from China to Portugal.

      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
