it is a VERY tight fit to squeeze it in and out of the chassis, but it does fit

 

be sure to get that one which has the built in power circuit (there is another identical looking card which required a molex power connector)

 

its just an SATA adaptor, so the max speed is the same SATA limit you would get with any SATA SSD

 

and the microserver quite happily boots off it, it works flawlessly, its perfect for the gen 8

 

 

 

I can see that the it's a tight fit on your photos but it seem to work for you, so I guess it 'll work for me also.
I did notice now also that it do have a extra SATA port, that's nice.

 

I'll order this card later, I guess that the link that you did post is to the right card?

 

Edit:
Did you install any drivers with the card?

I'm running Windows Server 2016.

yeah it is

 

you can see next to the additional SATA port, the marking where the additional power connector WOULD go if it were the other card

What OS do you run it from?

Did the low-profile plate come with the card?

Ok, Did you need to install any drivers for the card or was it just plug-and-play?

also, regarding the plate, was it a low-profile one with the card or did you buy it seperatly?

As I can get from GeekBench, the list of Gen8 Microserver CPU's is this:

New query in GeekBench, added two new CPUs, yellow ones:

The one that was linked to is the exact one I bought.

The card doesn't come with a low-profile bracket, I had to buy one separately. Here's the one I got, it fits perfectly: http://www.ebay.com/itm/201579337542

 

Also, for reference, my Gen8 runs Windows Server 2012 R2, and I didn't have to install any drivers.

What do you guys think, Marvell 88SE9705 or LSI SAS 9211-8I? These models, to be exact:

 

IOCREST IO-PCE9705-8I: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/8-Internal-SATA-6G-Port-PCI-Express-card-Marvell-chipset/1078827089.html

UNICACA LSI SAS 9211-8I LSISAS2008-IT: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Factory-New-OEM-LSI-SAS-9211-8I-LSISAS2008-IT-8-Port-NO-RAID-HBA-JBOD-SATA/2500087_32823959912.html?spm=2114.12010608.0.0.6abeb53chg9JhJ

 

The plan is to use either of those on Win Server 2012 R2 Standard, set up as JBOD.

Thanks.

      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.
