HP Microserver Gen8, HDD trouble


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I have a question about the microserver gen8, witch i recently bought.

Currently i have 1 HDD in the server, and made 1 logic volume of it in the array tool.

The power settings are set to medium so a mix between power and power saving.


Now i installed ESXi on the server and installed 1 machine.

But the ESXi and the virtual machine are very slow, and the virtual machine uses 100% of the disk.


Coming from the N40L microserver i never had this problem with an HDD.


Any ideas why it's so slow?


Are the power settings the problem?

Is the HP array logic volume the problem?


I don't have much time to troubleshoot, so hoping some of you have had the same problem.


current setup:

Gen 8 microserver.


16GB memory

1 150GB HDD (used this drive in my old setup, only this one is new)
