    Drive performance varies from bay to bay

    Ok thanks for the reply, so if I get a pci express card do I connect the main Sata cable to this card instead of the motherboard. Update: I can’t seem to find a card with this type of connector any more.

    Add a 6th drive, P222 or not

    thanks for your answer. I thought about all that stuff and went trough some reading. I am thinking about putting the 4 bay on the P222 ans use the 2 ssd on the B120i on port 1 and 2? Then I'll be able to run proxmox installed on the SSD on a zfs mirror. Then for storage, I'll see if I do a freenas VM or direcltly share the zfs pool on proxmox.

    Drive performance varies from bay to bay

    Yes, the first 2 bays are SATA III and the other two are SATA II. If you want more/all drives with SATA III you could use a PCIe controller, something with SFF-8087 SAS.

    Drive performance varies from bay to bay

    Ok done some reading on here and it seems the first two bays are Sata 3 (6gb) and the second two are Sata 2 (3gb) so that explains what the benchmark testing is showing. is there any way of adding another two Sata 3 ports to this server ?

    Drive performance varies from bay to bay

    It seems bays 1 & 2 are running at the correct 500mb/sec, but bays 3 & 4 are running at 280mb/sec ? Should they not be all at full speed. I am running the OS in bay 1, all in ahci mode using the standard Microsoft hard drive controller driver. any ideas please.
  8. I’ve been running some benchmarks on my ssd drives, one is over 500mb/sec read and write, which is correct, but the other is only 280mb/sec read and write. The two ssd drives in question are the same make and model fitted in two of the slots on the front bay. any ideas why, this is in ahci mode.

    Ahci to raid mode query

    I’m in the process of changing my standard 3.5” drives to ssd, I’m currently set up in ahci mode as I was using the hard drive sleep function for when the drives were not in use. is it possible to change back to raid mode without loosing the files on the drives, as I won’t need the hard drive sleeping mode any longer once fully changed over. i realise I would need to reinstall windows again so that’s fine. also hopefully the fan would drop back down in speed from 9% to 6%, i seem to remember it was running similar to this when I first got the server. also is the read / write speed the same or similar between ahci and raid mode. Thanks.

    ML350p Gen8 CPU Upgrade

    I'm building a VM server for home, trying to keep it under $500, and a tower not rack mount. I had read a great article about this http://jptoto.jp/build-your-own-32-core-home-lab-server/ using 2 @ E5-2670 processors as they are pretty cheap right now. The article listed all the parts and when I priced them out came to about $750. I then found I could get a ML350p Gen 8 w/E5-2609, 32GB Ram for $305. CPU upgrades would be about $110, 2 @ 1TB SATA drives $90. So all about $500. Then researched the CPU upgrade, it seems I have to be concerned that the CPU's should come from an HP machine, firmware issues. As to the drives, they should also be HP drives, again compatibility. Does anyone have any experience on this, or other issues I may run into? There is the possibility of getting a ML350p Gen 8 with 2@E5-2660 for $400, no HD. Would this be better? Thanks for help in advance. MT-Geek
  17. Yup, I've used those in the past. I also like the Icy Dock EZConvert's and have two in my G10 MS.

    New iLO version 4.62 Version:2.62 (2 Apr 2019) Fixes Upgrade Requirement: Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience. Resolved an issue where iLO could intermittently cause adapters to lose configuration after updating adapters to newer firmware. https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5390291&swItemId=MTX_0605845b94a948e19846dd4301&swEnvOid=4184#tab-history
  19. This even happens on the ILO app though, which you can’t configure SSL/TLS for? thanks for the link btw, that will come in handy.
  20. Maybe it has to do with SSL/TLS settings Depending on the browser (not in ILO) your using , you might want the fiddle with the TLS/SSLsettings in the browser. I can't reproduce the issue myself because I use a vpn to access ILO remotely, which I recommend btw. BTW: I use this site to see for updated ILO firmware. He's pretty quick with updates. https://pingtool.org/latest-hp-ilo-firmwares/

    can no longer connect to iLo from external?

    Looks like iLo4 2.70 firmware has not been released yet.
  22. no luck unfortunately. same issue even after the update. interestingly though, there is mention of an ILO 4 2.70 firmware here, but i cant seem to find any download links for it. https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c03334036
  23. New ILO 4 firmware 2.62 is out (2 Apr 2019). You might want to give that a try, you never know. Fix: Resolved an issue where iLO could intermittently cause adapters to lose configuration after updating adapters to newer firmware. https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5390291&swItemId=MTX_0605845b94a948e19846dd4301&swEnvOid=4184

    ESXi notes

    @sebureii I dont fully understand what problems you experience, do you have more info? Perhaps it's partialy a browser related issue?

    Add a 6th drive, P222 or not

    I have not used Proxmox, so I can only give you ideas on what I have done or things you may want to consider. Do you want to run the drives as AHCI or RAID? ESXi is getting better about working with AHCI, but RAID seems to work better. With ESXi I had a P222 connected to the front four drives running RAID5 or 10 and the B120i cabled to two SSD's in a RAID1. If you want everything in the server on the same controller you could use a P420 and have four drives on one port and two on the other. If Proxmox supports AHCI you could add in a HBA and run all the drives on it. Some configuration questions will relate to what you are trying to achieve. Example: Many users decided to run ESXi on the MS Gen8 and run FreeNAS as a VM. As FreeNAS prefers to manage the drives itself the best way to configure the system was to run the VM's from SSD's on the B120i and add a HBA for the four drive bays. Then passthrough the HBA and drive directly to the FreeNAS VM. Later versions of ESXi have gotten better at passing through individual drives. There are many ways to configure this, but the configuration is very dependant on how you are going to use the system with Proxmox.

    ESXi notes

    My 2 cents... 1) That you have installed the "HPE Gen9plus" version of ESXi on a Microserver Gen8? Correct, using the iso. 2) Do you have responsive SSH access to your ESXi (not using the "Alt + F1" option)? Does your session freeze at all with inputs (login, command inputs, etc)? SSH Full controll. No freeze or lagging. 3) Is the Web UI responsive (etc Creating Datastores or viewing the Datastore File browser, switch between navigation options, etc). Web UI is responsive as normal. Full access and no glitches when browsing and modifying/configuring settings. I use is primarely to connect via remote console in full screen. Works perfectly.
