    ESXi notes

    Hi, my first post to the Reset Forums but I've been lurking for quite a while. I have a Gen8 microserver running HPE-ESXi-6.5.0-Update2-iso-preGen9-650.U2.9.6.8.3. This is booting from a 120GB SSD in the ODD tray and it works fine. The only downside to 6.5 is that FreeBSD VMs take a long time to boot and the Web Client shows that message: "The configured guest OS (FreeBSD (64-bit)) for this virtual machine does not match the guest that is currently running. . .". This morning I tried to upgrade using the VMware-ESXi-6.7.0-Update2-13006603-HPE-Gen9plus-670.U2.10.4.1.8-Apr2019 ISO burned on a USB. When the upgrade process scans the disks it does not recognize any existing installation so I'm not getting an "upgrade" option. I did notice that, after the scan, the disks themselves are listed in a different order - SSD last, not first as it was for the 6.5U2 upgrade. Anyone know what's going on here? Any additional info that might help? Thanks in advance.

    E3-1265L / PCI-e?

    Hi, I know this is an old topic, but I have come across the same issue of non recognition of the TBS-6982 S2 satellite card with a Xeon E3-1260L processor in the Microserver Gen8. Tried to contact Peter if he came across a resolution on the faulty CPU scenario etc, but perhaps he left the forum. However, I had a newer TBS-6281 T2 terrestrial card that worked in the same slot, so I contacted TBS direct to ask them about this issue and the possibility the newer TBS-6902 S2 card may work based on the terrestrial card result and PCI bridge updates. I got this response: This chipset does appear problematic: https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/NXP_SAA716x I couldn't find any direct references in reference to the special order E3-126XL CPU's, but it does all kinda fall into place beyond a coincidence.... I have ordered a TBS-6902 based on this response.... and will update in due course. Hope this helps anyone who finds this thread as the only result in Google regarding this issue between E2-1260L and TBS-6982 cards

    HP ML10 GEN 9 parts help

    Then you likely have a ML110 Gen9. Can you confirm? https://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c04605708-5.pdf For the four drives you currently have are they in swappable bays or mounted in the case? Swappable drive bay options are documented starting on page 13 in the user guide listed above. For the cable you asked about, ebay tends to be the best place to find those. This is a good guide as well. Drive bay topics start on page 28: https://content.etilize.com/User-Manual/1033728312.pdf

    The configuration ... Ryzen 2700 CPU Vengeance RAM Silicon Power NVME RX 580 GPU … looks pretty much the place to be right now ... … and a solid base for reparenting in the future. As to memories of a 2nd spinning disk, I don't use any 2nd disks these days: 32-256GB for a single function device with all bulk data on storage servers. Chickening out and slipping back to INTEL CPU's? Maybe the forthcoming (XMAS 2019?) 10nm chips with on-die Thunderbolt will have some interesting networking possibilities, otherwise AMD is the value play.

    interesting. when my son who is a 'professional' gamer needed more oomph I got a newegg deal with a b450m mobo, ryzen 5 2600, and 16gig of corsair vengeance. Worked a treat - his machine benchmarks out at double what my xeon server can do. I hope you enjoy your new setup!

    I have no clue honestly. I'm waiting on the new Halo releases for PC but ultimately they are old games. I'm going to try to install Halo 2 on it and do the campaign. I never did it. I did the first one just not 2. Kind of lame because evene a generic PC can handle that game!
  12. Thanks for the heads up. I've downloaded it and installed on my microservers.

    Fun project to watch take shape! Then, equally important, what games are worth playing these days? Have been so out of gaming for so long!

    It's here! I'm trying not to get in a hurry though. The i/o shield on the mobo was the normal silvery aluminum so I have a few coats of black drying on it now. Will see what it looks like tomorrow. I still have yet to settle on a video card. I'll use what I have here first before getting a new one.

    RAM

    If I remember correctly, these AMD CPU's reserve about 1G of memory for graphics. I do not think there is a way to change the reserve.

    RAM

    My Gen10 with X3216 has one module of 8GB installed. OS is Windows Server 2019. Any idea why it shows me only approx. 6.96GB available RAM in Server Manager (same in properties of System)? Does the GPU (driver?) grab too much of the physical RAM? Any setting in UEFI BIOS that can cause this high RAM assignment to some hardware? (I didn't install any new hardware, except for SSD and HDDs)

    Same thing for me with a 4i version in ilo
  25. Yup, great idea. I have docker on one of my units and experimented with it but never followed through with it. It's the perfect spot for the controller as it runs 24/7. I'll give it some more thought as it is really easy to move the AP's with my new script!
  26. Hey Dave, Re the Unifi controller - I created a docker container on my Synology that runs the Controller software. Working well for the last 4 months.

    I noticed the reviews, just using it as a place holder for now. For your 1070/1060 issue, I believe there are tools from Nvidia to force a factory BIOS load as well. There was an odd memory issue with 1070's that caused a fork in the BIOS for some models. For the 1TB SSD, do you need 2.5" SATA or M.2 NVMe or SATA? If it is for the gaming build above you have a second M.2 slot for SATA. You could use either of these if you want low cost: Team Group MS30 M.2 2280 1TB SATA III TLC Internal SSD TM8PS7001T0C101 $98 https://www.newegg.com/team-group-ms30-1tb/p/N82E16820331233 Mushkin Enhanced Source M.2 2280 1TB SATA III 3D TLC Internal SSD MKNSSDSR1TB-D8 $104 https://www.newegg.com/mushkin-enhanced-source-1tb/p/N82E16820226888 WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB Internal SSD - SATA III 6Gb/s M.2 2280 Solid State Drive - WDS100T2B0B $110 https://www.newegg.com/western-digital-blue-1tb/p/N82E16820250092 or if you need 2.5" SATA: 960GB start at $83 or 1 TB for $90 Silicon Power Ace A55 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SU001TBSS3A55S25NE $90 https://www.newegg.com/silicon-power-ace-a55-1tb/p/N82E16820301382

    KB2781272 hotfix download link

    Microsoft is being very stupid removing all of the old hotfixes from their websites. They are also wiping out old blogs and thus invalidating many cross-linked articles to those blogs and hotfixes. It is insane. I found a source for KB2781272 on the wayback machine (WWW archive) here: https://web.archive.org/web/20130910201028/http://hotfixv4.microsoft.com/WHS%202011/latest/KB2781272/6.1.8800.16402/free/459525_intl_x64_zip.exe I hope this is helpful to others stuck in the same bind.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was close to pulling the trigger on the Silicon Power NVMe PCIe M.2 - https://amzn.to/2IizNKg $115.99 and should have talked to you first! I needed to spend the Fry's card anyway so I'm happy with the 970. I've never really bought top of the line so I'm a bit excited on that purchase! I need to shop for a 1TB SSD now. eBay is still chock full of mining GPU's. I've found great deals on 580's but still a little leery on how they were treated. I treated my cards good but you never know. I've always known this 580 to be the best. Here is a guy moving out his inventory. https://www.ebay.com/itm/MSI-RADEON-RX-580-ARMOR-8G-OC-EDITION/372662883584?epid=21026727039&hash=item56c4705500:g:fhAAAOSwkHlcyOl4 They are $205 new. I still have a 1060 3GB card too. It's a junker though. I got it from an Amazon auction and it's actually a 1070 card that thinks it is a 1060. I think someone flashed it wrong and I've tried to recover with no luck. I could always use it but it's pulling extra power I don't want to give it. NewEgg has a better deal on the card I was looking at. The reviews on that ASRock GPU not so good. https://www.newegg.com/msi-radeon-rx-580-rx-580-armor-8g-oc/p/N82E16814137118?Description=MSI RADEON RX 580 ARMOR 8G OC EDITION&cm_re=MSI_RADEON_RX_580_ARMOR_8G_OC_EDITION-_-14-137-118-_-Product
