    Memory for Microserver Gen8

    Just wanted to say thank you for your help Schoodoggy. The memory finally arrived (had a sight delay), and it works perfectly. Excellent value for for $30! (plus $10 delivery). I have upgraded my Gen8 to 16gb & a Xeon E3-1240 v2 for less than $100! I only run a Debian headless server with docker, so this will last for a few more years before it needs replacing.

  4. I bought my WHS several years ago. I am not the most tech savvy, but was briefly able to get my pc to back up to it. We moved back in 2011 and tons of 'life' happened. I now would like to hook it back up. Also, it powers up and lights come on. I can hear at least one of my 3 drives spin. unfortunately, I cannot access it like a network drive. I think I need a client app. My current PC does not have a CD drive and I am not even sure if I still have the disk. What are my options? I am now on Windows 10. Is there a download somewhere? I have heard that there are back-up probs with Win10. Either way, I'd like to access all the family pics we saved there. Thanks!

    did you try new microSD card?
  8. I upgraded a DL360 Gen8 lab server to Window Server 2019, and noticed that unlike 2016, I can no longer use just two ports for WAN, host LAN access and Hyper-V LAN access. I'm running Sophos UTM Home as a Hyper-V VM on both so I need two NICs in Hyper-V. I notice that when I try to put the Hyper-V Virtual Switch on eth2, it gives me an error that it's already bound to the Virtual Switch protocol. But in properties, it's unchecked! I'm wondering if I'm missing something, or this will happen to my Microserver as well. And since the Microserver effectively only has two NICs for OS access, this won't work? Hope I've explained it clear enough? Server 2016 on Microserver Gen8 and previously DL360 Gen8 eth1: WAN (not shared to hypervisor) eth2: LAN (access to hypervisor and Hyper-V VMs) Server 2019 on DL360 Gen8 eth1: WAN (not shared to hypervisor) eth2: LAN (WS 2019 host/hypervisor) eth3: LAN (Hyper-V virtual switch) *and yes, the physical port assignments are correct. Not sure why but Windows identifies physical ethernet port 2 as #1 and port 1 as #2 yet ports 3 and 4 are correct!
  9. For sale a HP P222 raid card with 1Gb cache and external battery (capacitor). Lastest firmware installed, works perfectly. available in France, shipping is possible (shared costs) 60€

    Go to Diagnostics, click on iLO Health and you will see a format card option. It worked on my Gen8 server.

    I downgraded to 2.54 version, then I had the following message: Embedded Flash/SD-CARD Controller firmware revision 2.10.00 Embedded media manager failed initialization Then I upgraded again to 2.70 after some reboots, an I have the following error: Controller firmware revision 2.10.00 Embedded media initialization failed due to media write-verify test failure Guess I can't do anything about it
  15. @CB1 Thanks for your information, IML logs is empty(no information), also try to remove and replug memories and other parts. Now I can confirm I may break the CPU socket in the motherboard when I trying to replace the CPU.

    thks, I'll try it this evening, I'll keep you updated
  17. Are you talking about the ambient sensor cable? If you unplug it you should just get the 01-Inlet Ambient being -1C and it should not affect anything else and should boot normally. I would update to the latest BIOS and see what happens. Also make sure that the memory is seated properly. What does the IML (logs) say?

    Have you tried taking iLo back to an earlier version? What version BIOS are you running? Look at the 9th post in this thread: https://community.hpe.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-ML-DL-SL/HP-Proliant-Gen8-SD-CARD-issue-iLO-diagnostic/td-p/6971780#.XOIeechKguU

    I had the same error before the update. I talked about it on a French forum and some other had this issue and the motherboard had to be replaced....

    It seems to be that I will postpone the iLo update for now. As at least two persons reported here problems.

    I did the update, still the same error on ilo Health, I tried the format but still the error. I guess there s a real problem with my gen8...but it s no more under warranty...

    Upgrading Gen8 with no contract

    Hello, I recently upgraded my Gen8 J06 (Linux OS) and prefered to use separate upgrade process than the SPP. For Bios, i used this then : Unpack : rpm2cpio <rpm_filename>.rpm | cpio -id Check where is the usefull file (hpsetup) : rpm -qlp <filename>.rpm Then go to the repo and execute with ./hpsetup + reboot Same for Ilo (here) and the P420 (here). It works fine and i guess the double ROM could rescue in case of problem (i didn't test this). I guess it's the same for microsoft. Ps. I don't have any ilo licence.
  23. Hi, wondering if anyone can advise what the correct process is to update firmware / drivers etc on Gen8 Microserver with no warranty/support? I've seen the Spectre update is available for free https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5390291&swItemId=MTX_671606ca210640bbb93ae3b683&swEnvOid=4184 However, I am not sure if the process is better to download a service pack instead that contains updates together? I am running FreeNAS 11.2. On another note, I am wondering if there is any way of utilising iLO without having a license? Thank you very much

    I tried to install a windows server but it fails as it asks for a driver, I guess for the LSI SAS9211-4i but all the drivers I try don't work. Do I need a driver for any embeded card in th microserver ? I want to install the windows just to do the Ilo update and try to get rid of the ilo error.

    Synology 2 Bay DS218+ VS DS218

    Agree with @schoondoggy I usually recommend the plus in almost all circumstances. You said streaming, so yes. Go Plus.
  26. @CB1 I think I've broken the Sensor Cable when I trying to unplug the sensor cable(to upgrade the CPU), now the status page in iLO look like this, I can not boot anymore, Not sure it's related to temp sensor or the replaced CPU, but I tried to replace the CPU back, still the same problem.
  27. Thanks for the reply Kingeth3. That's what I thought, so I did in fact reseat it and reapply thermal compound, and it made no difference. I also did it a 3rd time just to make sure! (However this last time, I'm now getting different temps on the cores, but that may just be due to the uneven fan airflow, it's a ghetto mod after all 🙂). I guess that even though it's only an extra 14w it's practically 30% of your 45w.... So that could account as a hefty bump for the extra 20c or so.... (I also live in a hot country, so ambient temperature is high). I apply thermal compound the old fashioned way, just enough to cover the bare metal with an old credit card. Been doing it that way for years (since the mid 90's). Never been quite sure how much to put when people refer to a pea size dot in the middle! (Peas come in many sizes!). I used to do a lot of overclocking, lapping heatsinks (sometimes even the top of the chips themselves!), as well as watercooling. Now I can't be bothered, i just want things to run smoothly and quietly, since speed is not really an issue anymore... Certainly when the heatsink comes off the spread of the compound seems fairly even.... The noise of the fan is irritating, so I may have another go... 😉
