HP ProLiant Gen9 MicroServer RUMORS

Recommended Posts

artiom

My Microserver Gen 8 works just perfectly - it is upgraded with a Xeon 1265L CPU and 16GB RAM - so the upgrade to the next generation would not justify the expenses.

Currenlty it runs Hyper-V 2012 R2 with 8 VM's and there are ~4GB free RAM - which is more than enough for my needs.

If its capabilities would not be enough - I would go for a bigger server.

I work in the IBM Server industry at a UK Business Partner - I asked one of my distribution suppliers about the  HP G9 Microserver and he's seen nothing on it as yet

I supposed it's still possible, but it seems more and more likely that HP may skip Gen9 for the MicroServer line.

Still waiting here as well, the firmware and carepack stuff doesnt really bother me as I'll get the Micro's covered by work (which I can share with the guys here btw if anyone needs anything) but I am looking at buying two, one for me and one for the tech guy here so we can both play with Hyper-V stuff...

Could put a pair of Gen8's in but I've already got one of those lol..

According to my source, no MicroServer Gen9 before June 2015.

In that case, the rumour mill should swing into full operation...... just about now! :)

I hope they go with something like the Pentium J2900 - quad core Bay Trail.  Oh, and get rid of the iLO, it's pointless in the Gen8.  In fact, if they'd take the Gen7 and swap the AMD chip for the Pentium, they'd have another popular little machine.

You're going to get a bunch of argument about iLO. A number of members have said how much they like it.

I admit the iLO is not all that useful at home, but when you're using them at work in remote sites as NAS/DC boxes it's invaluable.

 

Speaking to a supplier today, he seems to think that they're winding down supply of the Gen8 in preparation for a Gen9 box. Getting hold of the E3-1220 model is almost impossible (Insight UK say they're going to have one in 2 weeks) and suppliers only have a couple of the others in stock.

 

The thing that annoyed me the most about the Gen8 vs the Gen7 was the lack of a full-size drive bay at the top. I could've done with the ability to fit a couple of 2.5" drives in a hotswap bay in addition to four 3.5" drives in a recent project.

      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

      I installed a BU50N Blu-ray 4K drive in my HPE ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer.  Worked out well, I'm using PowerDVD13 -- I had to restart the "Machine" several times before it saw the ODD but "Machine" finally figured it out.

      Hi there,
      I hope this topic fits here just right.
      So a few days ago, I moved my Microserver Gen8 to a friend's place and resetted it.
      When we set it up with new disks, the raid-creation in OpenMediaVault (Debian 9.6) failed.
      `smartctl` tests passed just fine though and vendor-tools also didn't report any drive errors.
      What happened?
      - I start the Raid creation via `mdadm` and after a while (random blocks and times), it fails and the second disk seems to fail (e.g. sda and sdb are creating a raid, then sdb gets "kicked out" and reread as e.g. sdd, sometimes even with only a few GB of space instead of 3TB).
      I tried attaching the second disk on ata2 and ata3, but it keeps failing. The one on ata1 works just fine though.
      I tried different disks and vendors, but get the same results.
      There are some errors in `dmesg`, but I don't know what they mean. I pasted them here: https://pastebin.com/raw/XASQJ6cy
      What I did here: I stopped the raid to re-create it, but then didn't do anything for a while and the error still came up.

      Can someone help me with this? (As a wild guess, I'd say that somethings wrong with the SATA connections at least on ata2 and ata3).

      Thanks in advance
