    Gen10+ Anyone got one yet?

    BTW this card does not work in the G10+ Xeon version. Have tried all sorts of BIOS combos. Cannot even get the card to be detected at all. BIOS lists the PCIe port as unpopulated. Haven't run across and threads anywhere that show it being tested with this system. EDIT: also wrt to OS, I've settled on Windows Server 2019 (eval). Still keeping my WSE12R2 Core i5 Ivy Bridge box as a Blue Iris and Plex Media Server with QuickSync support. Moved all Hyper-V VMs off it. Tried VMWare ESXi... just couldn't get into it.
  3. Are there any Dual M.2 NVMe cards that actually works? I tried this Supermicro card, but it simply wasn't even detected in the Xeon G10+. https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/accessories/addon/AOC-SLG3-2M2.php Ended up using a Silverstone ECM22 that supports 1 NVMe and 1 M.2 SSD. Am able to boot off the NVMe drive (using a small 500 GB one). Have not tried to add an M.2 SSD on there for storage. Will try that next.

    ESXi 7.0 and HPE Smart Array S100i

    I've read the challenges with these RAID controllers is they are power hungry and G10+ has a power budget of 180W max (which you want to stay well below).

    I'm looking at upgrading the RAM from 8 to 16GB in my Gen10. would this one be the right one? Kingston KSM24ED8 Or should I have to go with the same model as the ones @Joe_Miner has used: KVR24E17D8/16

    Over my head... a little

    My main goal is really to educate myself. I plan to run my home network off of this machine. Unifi Controller, Emby media server, my mail server, some web servers using Nginx, I have about 30 TB of assorted data that the family and relatives have gathered over the years. I currently have a Windows server 2012 r2 running almost everything on the main system and one VM running Linux for the web servers and the mail server. The whole setup is not really ideal, when something crashes, the whole system goes down. I want to separate as much as possible into separate VM's and get into containers where possible. I'll keep the current system running while getting the new system setup. I also want to play with anything new that might come along without taking down the whole server when I screw up, which I'm sure I will. 🙂 P.S. - I also have an i3 box running Sophos UTM and I would like to switch to pfSense if that makes sense. I recently upgraded to Gigabit FIOS. I plan to set up a VM to test pfSense while not destroying the current setup. Once I get things sorted out, I'll put it on the i3 box (with upgrades as needed).

    CPU for Microserver 10plus

    Pretty sure QuickSync and stuff like that is unlikely to be supported in a server type device, regardless of what CPU you put in there..

    CPU for Microserver 10plus

    HP indicated a Xeon with QuickSync support wouldn’t work on the G10+. Not a big deal. Just started setting mine up. Added a PCIe NVMe card to boot from M.2 NVMe drive. Installing WS2019 Std. Just not a VMWare ESXi fan.

    i installed a core I5 8400 and it works :-)

    WD Red 2-4-6TB drives could be SMR

    Samsung have been my "Go To" drive since they came out, I had a few OCZ drives before that, think I paid £200 for my first SSD which was 30Gb iirc, had a few issues but their support was spot on, but once the Samsungs came out, that was it and has been since, the only reason I have some Crucial drives was because they came with a machine...
  12. That is what I would buy if I could still find them in the UK. I did find an web article somewhere that says that the Pro models have MLC cells that have a longer lifetime than the TLC used in the EVO models and I think it also said that the higher grade models have a small proportion of the even more reliable SLC cells (used in top end business models) as a sort of cache and that the 850 pro had the greatest proportion. Another web page also helps... https://www.datenreise.de/en/ssd-comparison-differences-between-samsung-pro-and-evo-series/

    MS Gen10 non-ECC memory

    The new HPE Gen10 plus is rated for up to 32 GB ECC RAM but will support both ECC and non-ECC. Also up to 64 GB.

    I changed the CPU of my Gen 8

    I'd take the 1265, it has hyperthreading and runs cooler. Bit more useful info here on ARK. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/compare.html?productIds=65734,65728

    WD Red 2-4-6TB drives could be SMR

    Same size, mmm, I could do that.. I've got a 500Gb Samsung 860 Evo, a pair of 250Gb 850 Pro's then some Crucial MX300/500 drives in the other server at work. Yeah, I could still get it working..

    I changed the CPU of my Gen 8

    Hello friends. Today two CPUs arrived for my two Gen 8 servers I had bought two different models However, the seller sent the first model wrong, and sent me a Xeon E3-1220 v2 According to this comparison LINK he two are very similar. I used thermal paste MX-4 (2020), and put heatsinks on the other chipset on the motherboard. The speed of FAN today, in both GEN8 is 6% I know that the Xeon E3-1220 v2 consumes much more energy, but can this be a problem? It seems to be slightly better than the Xeon E3-1265L v2. Between these two models, which is better in performance?
  18. I second the samsungs but am not familiar with 'commercial' grade SSDs. very familiar with 'economy' ones though... but for my laptop "daily driver" I have a 850 evo with 85tb on it already.
  19. Chris said the SSDs need to be the same size and he uses old 128GB drives that are not showing wear over 4 years use. I have asked him if there is a user guide that documents all this. Reliable manufacturer's drives that size are rare. For me, I'd like to have lower density 256GB which have long warranty and high TBW, so I plan to buy two Samsung 860 Pro as soon as funds permit - or my kids each buy me one for my birthday (hint) Here is the Samsung Warranty +TBW link... https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/support/warranty/

    WD Red 2-4-6TB drives could be SMR

    Hmmm, well I'm down to a single spare SSD at the mo as got rid of one to a mate, I've got 2 spares in my other server at work so could use those if required..

    @JackoUK Interesting, not seen that linking before. Seen it on retail copies, but not for machine licences

    Have I put the SSD on wrong?

    As the others said, pretty much whatever works, if it does not move easily, seriously impede airflow or allow the cables to move too much (and then break the SSD connector - seen this before it does happen) then you should be good

    Over my head... a little

    I agree with @Trig0r define what are you trying to achieve. Both Hyper-V and ESX have their benefits, if you are going to go for an M$ exam no point playing with ESX for instance. If you are going to do some more advanced things and want to discretely assign hardware, ESX is better for that. Personally I mainly use Hyper-V because that's what I use at work so therefore I can configure and troubleshoot that in my sleep (although moving to containers these days so we shall see how that ends up) I also effectively have unlimited M$ licences through work so I do not care to much about costs on that, I get full Datacentre versions for no cost if I want it, therefore its cheaper for me to do this. also I do not know if it still applies but I have a recollection of ESXi having hardware limitations, most notably 32GB of RAM I do not know if that still applies, but its a limitation in the free version (if you want full versions reasonably cheaply have a look at VMUG memberships) There are also other platforms ProxMox, Xen and others outside "the big two" that may better achieve what you want Start out with what you want to achieve, and go from there
  25. From my understanding of a brief discussion with Chris, you can't slice'n'dice existing disks. You have to have 2 extra SSDs added to an existing pool to be able to use SSD Optimizer.

    Windows is activated

    All good. MSFT have progressively improved the re-installation process for Windows 10 so that one no longer has to enter 25-character product codes ... or retrieve disks ... and from May 2020 rely on a manufacturer's recovery partition: the installation files can be downloaded from the net by simply selecting an option. The OS recognises the hardware and its associated license and will permit limited changes e.g. new OS disk. Better still upgrading from Widows 7, 8, 8.1 to Windows 10 is still allowed FOC and will result in a permanently activated W10 license. Great for giving a new lease of life to older devices, as you have seen. In most cases upgrading an old device with an SSD for say £35 and free W10 is a sweet deal 😀 One can also (optionally) associate a Microsoft email account (MSA) with the machine license. https://www.ghacks.net/2016/08/15/link-microsoft-account-windows-10-license/ My guess is this would put you in good stead with MSFT for an extra change, say the motherboard failed.
