Creating a Storage Spaces Pool in Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Preview -- Part 2

Recommended Posts

Joe_Miner

As sort of a continuation of the Testing I started over at http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/6016-performance-test-create-and-measure-performance-of-storage-spaces-pool-3-virtual-hdds-in-wse2012r2p/ I created a Storage Spaces Pool in Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Preview using 3TB Seagate ST3000DM001's as the Physical HDD's in my SSPool.

Perfect timing as I was about to do the same!  I have two SSD's in a mirror and was thinking of stealing one to use as a Windows 8 build for my main PC.  Or I could just but a couple more!

Hello Joe, I am experimenting 2012 Server R2 standard edition on gen8 microserver with a P222 RAID Controller. You seem to be the guru of these experiments.

 

Two Three straight questions:

 

1. In step 17 (Fig23) on this TechnetBlog -  can the drive letter or folder be changed once selected or even if the last option "don't assign a drive letter or folder' is selected?

2. Are you really sold on Storage Spaces over P222?

3. Did you try Server 2016 yet?

 

Thank you sir.

I cannot answer the other questions as I do not use a MicroServer, all my storage pools are on Dell Rackmount Production servers. But the first question is yes, it should be able to be changed as any other disk is able to through the Disk Management console, right click on the disk and choose Change Drive Letter or similar

      As I have decided to make some improvements on my afermarket fan controller I am trying to try implementing thermal control or mobo PWM control of additional fans, but before that I'm in a great need to inderstand how much fan count the controller should be ready to support. As this forum doesn't support polls I have nothing to do but ask you to reply on this topic.
       
      What I would be thankful to know:
      1. How many fans have you installed in your Microserver.
      2. What fans do you use (size, 3/4-pin connector) and where are they located, also what are they cooling.
      3. What way do you power these fans?
       
      Thank you in advance for your feedback!

      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.

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

      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.
