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;

      FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.

      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.
