HP sells the Gen8 now with i3 and a new heatsink.

I think maybe releasing a new SKU might mean that Gen9 is delayed :(

 

Having some of these new low-power CPUs would be a beautiful thing.

I agree, new SKU's would suggest a lot of chassis at HP's end that they need to get rid of, quick BIOS update so they can take newer CPU's and we're stuck for another 6/8 months before a Gen 9 Microserver, imho of course..

Whats SKU?

 

If they have a lot to get rid of could the price drop further and cashback increase over the current £55?

 

I would like another one for backup... noticed it was once under £99 after cashback a few months ago!

SKU = stock keeping unit, or part number.

 

I guess they are selling the Celerons cheap to make way for the new i3 model. Probably have a load of Ivy Bridge i3 CPUs to get rid of now the Gen9 (and some Gen8 v2) is Haswell CPU...

Ah I see. I take it the i3 is more powerful than the celeron?

hmm, not really. the i3 has no ECC suppport. Only xeon have ECC. One thing the i3 has is more cores, but the lack of ECC and VTd makes it not a really good candidate for a Server CPU.

And..the i3 processor takes 55W while the celeron version take 35W. For i3 you need a new heatsink.

Some i3 CPUs do have ECC. The ones used in the new Microserver Gen8 SKUs support ECC despite Intel ARK saying otherwise. Intel ARK used to be correct but they changed it for some reason.

 

VT-d is only important if you're using virtualisation and want to passthrough PCIe devices. If you're not doing both of those things then it doesn't do anything.

      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
