ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Links

Recommended Posts

I added some additional sites that are selling Gen8 Microservers along with the links to the product pages and the pricing at the time I posted the info.

 

As pointed out in another topic, the prices are already starting to erode.

Very nice Chris -- having the prices in one place is pretty neat!

Pricing just gives people an idea of where it's currently at so they know when a deal comes around.

 

Interesting that the thing isn't even released into the market yet and the price is already falling.

The link to the QuickSpecs seems to be broken.

It seems to happen a lot with HP QuickSecs links.

Fixed (for now).  It seems HP is constantly changing the links to their pages.....

Renny alerted me to a short video with Greg Starks about the HP ProLiant G8 MicroServer that is pretty interesting and worth the time to watch IMHO -- Greg even mentions doing a Google search on "HomeServer" at the end of the video!

 

HP Tech Talk features new HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8

 

Thanks Renny for the heads up on this!

What'd ya think JM; I basically felt that Greg reiterated the use cases we talk about all the time around here. It does make me wonder about 1 thing though: Greg mentioned how HP strived for versatility of the G8 because they saw how people were modifying & upgrading their MicroServers. So why did they cut back to 1 PCIe slot? Seems to me this restricts versatility. I realise the x1 slot in the G7s was intended in some sense to be the ILO slot, and the G8s have ILO onboard, but that 2nd slot sure is handy.

I think the fact it has Dual LAN and USB 3.0 kinda makes most cards useless, what would you even use in there?

 

I really want to pick up a G8 when they get cheaper, but I am having trouble thinking of stuff it could do :( My G7 does everything I want

Why, more USB3 of course! :D

 

Seriously though, it only has 2 USB3 ports, doesn't it?

      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?
       
      Thanks

      Good evening,
       
      after checking my ILo4, version2.61 on my Gen8 hp microservet, i saw an exclamation mark at cpld-pal0. It is now version 0x06.
      i have read that there is an version 0x32.
       
      anybody who has this version, and can provide me with a download link?
       
      Attached my firmware configuration. Any suggestions for any updating? Think most is up to date?

      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.
