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

Dear Guys,

 

i using win10 with gen8 since years, works nice for gaming (with 1030gt nvidia), nas and personal use, but after a reinstall (ssd change) it looks like, became slower. If i remember, last install i found a 'home made' driver pack for win8/win10. Chipset, usb, sata..

 

Maybe somebody knows it and have? :) thanks!

2.70 is the latest version. Are you logging into iLo from the MS Gen8 or a different computer?

If you are having issues upgrading the BIOS through iLo, you can also update the BIOS by booting from a USB stick.

You may want to update iLo to the latest version.

Do you have an OS on the server?

Yup i currently have a test OS untill i get my SSD for the OSS caddy and the other HDDs. I have ubuntu running. The rpm can not be converted to deb it said :( probably because i did not have all the libs.

 

I've retrying the update.

 

Just to make sure its the CPQJ0613.684 file and i load it in the Administration -> firmware section right?

Adding another question.

 

I've changed the default http and https from 80 and 443 to... lets say port 88 and 44443 in iLo. Why is it that if i access the page but end it in :80 i still see iLo landing page but without login? I'm trying to host nextcloud on port 80 and 443 and it seems something in iLo is highjacking the port.

 

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

      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?
