ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Links


Recommended Posts

Use the shared network port, that will allow you to access the server without monitor; I mean remote, from your desktop, you connect to the server with a browser and with hp console. No need for anything else (kb mouse...) 

 

Ok,

 

I have accessed the  server via ilo4 and have gone to the admin > firmware and i am attempting to upload the firmware image from my mac and it fails after reaching 3% with an error  that the update was not succesful. it will not update.

 

what else can i try?

As more information becomes available I thought I would create a list of links that may prove to be helpful to anyone interested in the Gen8 Microserver.     The Schoon Store – Schoondo

Delivered.   (original table from Joe_Miner)

I must say this is a life-saving source of useful information about the Gen8 MicroServer!  And speaking as someone resurrecting their Gen8 with a rebuild, it has proven to be extremely useful. My than

Never used a mac, can't really help with that, sorry. Better open a new topic with your problem, I'm sure someone more informed will help.

I assume the prcoess would work on a windows machine?

It should work from Mac also, if you don't have a windows machine investigate what it's causing that error. I don't even remember how I updated mine, did it only once month's ago. The update program did not work, I had to upload the fw file from the ilo interface.

If you have a windows pc at hand, nothing wrong with trying.

What is the file you're trying to upload. The specific name of it.

tried it from a w8 pc and it still wouldnt work!

well the updated firmware linked in the OP, have tried the one hosted and the one from the ftp. from here

 

trying to upload via the ilo4 from my w8 pc, kept saying something about file name not right.

 

mounted both images in w8 and ran the bat tool as admin. which ran HP SUM But that also would not complete. it would get stuck at step 1 with problems with the local host.

 

tried mounting it again and  this time hp sum still on step 1 but localhost has completed inventory and it wont continue...

In ilo admin page, administration/firmware click chose file; select the .CC6 file, then upload.

This is the server firmware, not the ilo version

What is the filename? *sigh* I'm trying to work out if you're trying to load the packaged firmware image including the installer or whether you've extracted the actual firmware image itself.

      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.

      All credit to schoondoggy for his original idea. A shame I am on the wrong side of the Atlantic to order an SDM kit as the import duties make it an expensive option, or would have if they were still available. I had to look around to see what alternatives I could find... and managed to find the bits needed on Amazon!
       
      I must admit I am rather pleased with the end result of this project and may repeat it on the other Gen8 MicroServer. The outcome is a server with a mirrored system drive on the internal B120i, and the main drive bays connected to an HP P222 card providing a RAID-10 data volume. This is pretty much my ideal setup for a stable resilient but small server.
       
      Sabrent 3.5" to x2 SSD Internal Mounting Kit (BK-HDCC)
      Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/32qEVou
      Amazon US - https://amzn.to/3h8Blom
      The kit comes with all the cabling you need and all the required screws to mount the drives and bracket.
      Two types of power splitter cables are included along with two SATA cables. The bracket holds two SSDs and provides a small gap between them.
       
      I mounted the bracket next to the PSU but leaving a 2-3mm gap to allow for some airflow past the SSDs in case they get warmed by the P222.
       
      Tips:
      Put some insulating tape along the underneath of the upper chassis rail next to the PSU and drilled three small holes.
      I used two strips on to stop the drill bit from walking across the metal. Drill with a 2mm first then a 2.5mm bit. This leaves enough metal for screws to thread in.
      Check and measure each hole against the bracket as you go so that they line up. Bracket is then fixed in place using the provided screws (see photo).
       
       
      The final part of the puzzle is another Mini-SAS to SATA cable the same as the one connected to the internal drive bays.
      This is an SFF-8087 Mini-SAS [male] connector to 4 SATA [female] header cables. The 50cm cable from Jyopto works great and not too much spare to lose within the system.
      Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/2CXAzgb
      I could not find it on Amazon US site but there was one from CableCreations that same length.
       
      Just need to add your choice of SSDs and cable up to B120i port.  I went with Samsung 860 Pro SSDs for the longer rated lifespan of write cycles.
       
       
      I decided to forget about an internal DVD/RW drive and opted for an external HP F2B56AA slimline drive that can be plugged into the USB of either system.

      Sabrent also make a really good quality 2.5" to 3.5" bay converter adapter (BK-PCBS) that I have used in the EX490/X510 to convert from HDD to SSD system drives.

      Hopefully this information will prove useful to some looking to update their MicroServer.

      Does anyone know if it is possible to get Agentless Management Service (AMS) running on Debian/Ubuntu Linux? It is always showing as Not Available in the iLO page and I have only ever seen this active in Windows.

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