    Graphiccard on G8?

    That does not look like it will fit. It is a mini card. It is short for chassis that are not deep, but it is still a full height card. Cards for the micro server need to be low profile. The GT 1030 cards come in a low profile version and they tend to be single slot, not too thick. The GDDR5 versions are much faster than the DDR4: https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100007709 601297382 600038363 600038364 There were some low profile GTX 1050 cards. Height should be fine, but some of the two slot designs may not fit: https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100007709 600038363 600038364 601273503 601273511

    Graphiccard on G8?

    Hi all. Want to check if this would fit into the Gen8? Crossing fingers it gets your approval. https://www.ebay.com/itm/ZOTAC-GeForce-GTX-1050-Ti-OC-Edition-OVERCLOCKED-EDITION-PC-GAMING-/133106910539?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c10#viTabs_0
  16. Hello. I am the owner of HP ProLiant N40L MicroServer. But nowhere can I find the bios sewing. Please share links to the latest versions. Thank.
  17. And where is the updated firmware avaliable to download?
  18. Hello schoondoggy, Did you have the opportunity to run the P440 in your Gen8 microserver? If so, did you happen to try it out in HBA mode and did it run without the battery, or is there an alternative solution for server boards without the battery connector? I ask as in my area both the P420 and P440 are on offer for reasonable and quite similar prices. If the P440 works in the Gen8 microserver I'd be strongly inclined to purchase it rather than the older P420. Thank you very much in advance for your insights! P.S.: as this is my first post here, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who contributes to this exceptional Microserver resource. It is inspiring to read and see what members have achieved with such a small device!

    Ransomware attack plan

    Recovery from the cloud can be painful. There is a growing number of IT solutions that consist of a local appliance for backup and recovery and cloud management. Sorry for the name drop, but Rubrik.com is a very complete solution. Storagecraft.com is another. Veeam software has built out their replication and cloud management functionality as well. Didn't mean this to be a commercial, but there are many new solutions out there to mitigate risk of ransomware.

    Ransomware attack plan

    our cloud backup does snapshots-archiving however I dont trust cloud backup 100%, Ive already had an issue with restoring an adobe illustrator file that somehow got corrupted during the transfer...I always have local backup copy , and frankly it's faster to retrieve locally

    Ransomware attack plan

    Great topic and great timing! I think you are hitting on the major issue with ransomware attacks today, network or cloud drives. Ransomware is smart enough to encrypt all drives mapped and active. New ransomware variants seem to be able to attack cloud services as well. It is cumbersome, but I have gone back to manually backing up for the few PC's I have. That way I can connect to the network drive, backup data, disconnect from the network drive. Although unpractical, connecting a USB drive, backing up and disconnecting the USB drive may be one of the best/simplest ways to keep backups safe from ransomware. It has been a long time since I investigated backup software features, it may be a good time to review. Have any backup products built in a connect/disconnect function into their backup routine? It seems like QNAP had done something? For cloud services, has anyone added features to isolate your cloud backup from ransomware? Enterprise IT departments tend to rely on snapshot or point in time copy technology to save themselves from ransomware attacks.

    Ransomware attack plan

    wondering what other people are doing to protect data, our cad -graphics processor software provider sent out a bulletin that said they are getting reports of 2-3 customers every week getting hit with ransomware attacks locking all their data up on their network servers. I do cloud and local backups, I increased our email security and im contemplating either getting another server setup to be ready to go then keeping it off the network in case we get hit or just getting a NAS and dumping files and databases on them then taking it offline if Im ever forced to redo the servers...

    Virtualbox / Hyper-V Windows 95 / 98

    Sorted, I had still had Hyper-V installed when trying Virtualbox! Noob!
  24. Hey guys, trying to play with some VMs of 95 and 98 but they won't boot - yet work just fine in my laptop. I have an 8GB Win98 HDD image that works just fine but Virtualbox just doesn't load it (black screen), the issue would seem to with the Gen8 and some setting I am missing. Is there a well known rookie mistake I am making?

    Moving my server to the garage

    Nice work! Are your fiber cables OM2, OM3 or OM4?

    Moving my server to the garage

    Just to update, I ran a large micro trench, 35mm wide I ran new 25mm O/D flexible ABS tube without any split/hole along its length at a depth of 75mm. The tube extends 100mm into my house at one and, and 100mm into my man cave, so no possibility of water ingress. The tube is covered in coloured cement to level of existing tarmac. In the tubing i managed to get 2*duplex LC-LC fibres, 1*cat6e cable and 1*cat5 cable...... its tight, but allows for multiple failures (31Gb bandwidth MAX, i can run one 1Gb really!) Thanks for your assist guys, ill let you kow in 10yrs if cables are still functional

    Smarthings hub wifi vs ethernet?

    For the convenience and flexibility it affords, go for WiFi. The ST Hub isn't a bandwidth hog so it's not going to tax your WiFi network under normal circumstances.

  29. I'm really interested in the brackets Anyone selling theirs ? Wanting to mount 4x1TB SSDs so will need the 9mm and the SDM R4 And if anyone can point me in the right direction of making my own I can give that a go. Thanks, ROB
