HP ProLiant Gen9 MicroServer RUMORS

Recommended Posts

ikon

I think this is a basic difference in the markets. Home enthusiasts want the Gen8 to be more of a general purpose computer. Business wants a server. Since HP is clearly aiming the MicroServer line at business, it simply didn't make any sense to them to spend any money at all on a graphical subsystem. If enthusiasts want HP to make changes they want, they're going to have to make the case that there's enough of a market to justify the extra costs, that it's a market worth targeting. I'm not holding my breath :)

I like my iLO :)

 

And I think the vast majority of corporate users would scream blue murder if HP told them that iLO was being dropped.

I'm sorry, but I can't see how that would benefit a SMB server - maybe on a workstation...

 

Ikon pretty much sums it up - this micro server is aimed at SMB. I'm sure HP have done their market research and found that investing in revised graphics for this segment won't produce a good enough return for their investment...

How would you pay more money

 

There's a gpu sitting idle inside the cpu

which hp could quite easily pin directly into the output of ilo

Most Xeons don't have the integrated GPU so you'd still need to keep the G200 anyway and then use more die space for your VGA capture hardware. The reason why it is the G200 is because it is simple, has 2D acceleration and is still well supported by modern OSes.

HP uses the same iLO chips across the proliant range and the vast majority of these use Xeon chips which dont feature any iGPUs, so redesigning the chip just for the microserver (and some Ml310s) would make little sense.

Well,

 

I have read some bits and bytes about hp policies and gen8

 

don't get me wrong im not defending HP policies what so ever but the fact is the GEN 8 is for small companies and for the price is selling i find it quite good. i bought one for about 120 pounds after cashback. 

 

Also the ILO is an enterprise feature which most of the normal people dont use it or don't know it and the adv license is DAMM CHEAP is you search on the right place...

 

I don't like HP policies but their servers are great and the new GEN9 are 100% 64bits. 

 

Regards

Found this today "Gen8 Special Server" wonder what it is:

And also someone from HP suggesting the G9 is going to be soon: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-Netservers/HP-MicroServer-Gen9/td-p/6738322#.VWeLHs4k--I

 

I'm hoping for 32gb in the same form factor...

It is just a Gen8 Microserver with E3-1220L Xeon but specific to the Asia-Pacific region. You get 4GB instead of 8GB and you get the ODD included. I assume the ASJ BU decided that was the best combination for their region at their price point.

 

Yeah. That isn't too surprising. HP start to discount the base price and also do larger rebates whenever a new Microserver is about to be released.

Will it be a new chassis or simply an evolution of the Gen 8 though....

      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
