Too bad there are the firmware and other concerns; they detract from what could be a very enthusiastic response.

While not everyone will agree with you, it's certainly your right to express your dislike of HP's policies through your pocket book.

HP's policy meant that I invested in a CarePack for the Gen8, as much as I didn't want to. 

 

Which means at least in part that I now won't be interested in buying another Microserver, because I have coverage on this one, and I'd have to do it again for the next one.  Oops.

 

Law of unintended consequences?  I think so.

I wonder if HP is paying any attention at all.

Not betting money on it.

Oh heck, no, but it is a question.

I don't agree with it, but I get it on HP's big iron and medium-large business servers.  Smart businesses pay for service contracts on their production servers.  Even so, it doesn't mesh when it comes to bugs or security issues.

 

I think it's a bad idea for the Microserver, no matter what.  It's not the same market, or budget.

      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.

      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
