HP ProLiant Gen9 MicroServer RUMORS

Recommended Posts

Metallus

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.

can you please make a list with a few i3 CPUs that support ECC?

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

 

Has anyone gotten their hands on one of the official new SKUs with the i3? Is there a different heatsink or cooling solution stock?

Its TDP is including gpu use

THe celeron uses no more than 11 watts with the gpu disabled

 

Intel cpu's have had the ability to report exact power usage for a fair few years now

 

the same goes for the i3 3240 it could well use no more than 20-30 watts with no gpu

Why is there no power usage details in ilo? Or is that not normal...

The main consumer of servers is IT departments. I don't think they care what the power consumption of the CPU is. They do care about the power consumption of the server and how it relates to the amount of work it is capable of doing. I have always thought it would be interesting if power supply manufacturers built in a power use circuit that could be monitored by BMC systems like iLo. Currently, in data centers they measure power use on the outlets of the PDU in the rack.

Yes understood. Is this feature not supported with the MS gen8? I know it works with the DL380p's that we have.

Correct, the MicroServer does not have a PMC or smart power supply;

I think all of the HP DL series has the feature enabled, but I am not sure on the HP ML series, I will need to check.

You're comparing the Microserver to a significantly more expensive rackmount server. The Microserver uses a generic FlexATX PSU with no intelligence or communication between the motherboard and PSU beyond the power good line. The lower end ML servers don't have it either. It is considered to be a mid to high end feature for Proliants.

      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
