Gen8 B120i Driver Issues & S2012 backup failure

in the Gen8 Kernal_Security_Check_Failure I was seeing with my attempted installation of S2012R2 it seemed like the procedures/files at:

should fix the situation.

 

and this is a good reference http://www.em-soft.si/myblog/elvis/?p=394  

 

Besides the Kernal_Security_Check_Failure I was seeing a failure of the Server Backup to complete Successfully.

In order to use Server Backup (I need it for some of the testing I want to do) I blew away the S2012R2 and installed S2012

 

With S2012 I no longer go the Kernal_... issue but my Server Backup would fail like it had in S2012R2

 

So I applied the CP020926 since the problem smells like a driver issue with the B120i

 

the Server Backup still fails:

So, apparently there are still driver issues with the B120i and Server 2012....................

Looking more at the performance of the B120i...................

 

My RAID0 OS Drive created in B120i had the following performance in S2012R2 which was very similar to what I am seeing now in S2012

Which is noticably worse that what I saw with a HW RAID0 for my OS Drive on a N40L (also with two VR's but on SATA II ports) -- a SW RAID0 on the N40L under WHS2011 also provided better performance than the B120i (with it's two SATA III ports used in the RAID0 on the Gen8)

Well, it's beginning to look like HP's Intelligent Provisioning is the root cause of my Server Backup Problem http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/7aa15059-646e-4c42-9bc8-bface95e94c9/server-2012-server-backups-the-drive-cannot-find-the-sector-requested?forum=windowsbackup

 

And up to now I was thinking IP was Way Cool (it is fun to watch in action).....................

 

I'll dig some more into this...............

@(#$*%&!)# -- IT WORKED!  I followed the suggestion (in Technet Thread above) to reduce the size of my C: Volume and Backup Now Works great in Server 2012 -- I was having the same issue in Server 2012R2 so I suspect the issue is related :)!!

 

I did a Shrink Volume by 512MB

And Success -- apparently an HP IP issue.  I am current on IP at 1.5.....................
