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;

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.
