    ECC RAM spec / supplier?

    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 The ones in my microserver are MTA9Asf1g72az-2g3b1zg but these are impossible to find here in Down Under. Can you help me @schoondoggy ?

    Yeah, I've been running it now since I asked, its pretty good tbh.

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

    Its been pretty well confirmed that the "EFRX" models of WD reds are cmr and that the "EFAX" models are smr. Looking for a silver lining in all this. At least we now are all aware of the issues in "resilvering" a raid 5 array. Especially one with aging large disks

    110% Agreement with @schoondoggy here, Pocketcasts all the way. I did however get the lifetime account for 10$ when it was available several years ago before they were sold to NPR, so that helps, but yah, PocketCasts

  7. I have finally tweaked a couple of APC SmartUPS to gracefully shutdown all my servers and ancillary network equipment during a prolonged power failure. The UPS will also shut themselves off at a pre-determined time after all the equipment they're powering have shut down. Only when the following conditions are met, will the UPS power back on again: 1. Utility power returns, and 2. There's at least 50% battery capacity remaining. I've got two (2) HP N40L servers that, by default, requires me to physically press the power button when electricity returns. It would be ideal to have these powered up automatically when the UPS switches on. However, I can't seem to find the setting for it in BIOS (flashed with the AMI BIOS Mod). I need help in the following: 1. Maybe I missed it because the feature could be going by another name? 2. If the feature isn't really available in BIOS, what can I do to automate this process using WOL? I'm going for a totally unattended shutdown and power-up. Thanks!

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

    So, listening to the latest podcast reminded me to check my drives... I've got the following in my server ST4000VN000-1H4168 WD20EFRX-68EUZN0 WD60EFRX-68TGBN1 WD60PURX-64T0ZY1 All of which were purchased before "SMRGate" so I suspect are all CMR drives? In the podcast @Dave and @schoondoggy talk about the Red Pro drives, they, IIRC were also meant to be used in NAS units with more than 4 drives, something to do with firmware differences and drive balance/vibrations when you have more than X number of drives in a unit.. I also dug out an old 3tb WD MyBook Essentials which I'm going to "shelve" once its got a back up of critical data on it...

    Over my head... a little

    I preferred to set my pfsense in its own hardware while I play with lots of things in VMs. no sense disrupting the rest of the family should I need to touch the host box. I also found running containers in a vm to be not so ideal, but I hope to play with them too soon enough. good luck and enjoy!

    Gen10+ Anyone got one yet?

    Cards like the AOC-SLG3-2M2 are very dependent on the way the server bifurcates the PCIe x16 slot- two x8 or four x4. You may need to use a board with a PCIe switch chip on it like: https://www.addonics.com/products/ad2m2nvmpx8.php likely the same board from a different vendor: https://www.startech.com/HDD/Adapters/m2-pcie-ssd-adapter~PEX8M2E2

    Gen10+ Anyone got one yet?

    Yes. Neither option worked with this particular card. It simply wasn’t seen as even being installed.

    Gen10+ Anyone got one yet?

    Did you change the PCIe bifurcation settings? https://www.servethehome.com/hpe-proliant-microserver-gen10-plus-ultimate-customization-guide/hpe-proliant-microserver-gen10-plus-pcie-bifurcation-support/

    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.
  14. 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).

    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...
  23. 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?
  28. 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.
