    Rich, why have you started a duplicate thread? I replied in yoour original thread you started a day or so ago.. Have a look there and let me know if that helps or not.

    Dave this was the most relevant Reset in a while for me. I'm in the midst of cord-cutting hell! Here's my dilemma (which sounds similar to yours in some ways): I've had DirecTV for a looooong time - first subscribed in 1997 in Jacksonville, FL as a way to get Packer games down there. I married into a Wisconsin family with Packer season tickets so my conversion to Obligatory Packer-Fan was not an option! To be honest, it's been easy to BE a Packer fan for most of those years (Favre, Rodgers). As you may remember we now live in Denver. We still have DirecTV and have the setup where there is one dish, one main receiver (DVR) and it streams to the other three TVs we have in the house on their system. But I'm trying to CUT cords, not add to my monthly bill. One of my kids has left the nest (graduated from College - full adult) and she watched the most TV in the house. The other kid has a PS4 and streams Netflix, Amazon Prime and Crunchyroll on his basement TV. I don't watch much TV except when I get hooked on a show and binge but that's either Netflix or Amazon. This leaves my wife, who watches a fair amount of HGTV, History, Discover as well as news (Bloomberg, CNN, MSNBC). With this setup I've been wondering if I can cut the cord and reduce the $$ we are laying out every month. I researched and eventually settled on DirecTV Now. This was based on the mix of channels she watches. It was offered with an Apple TV and Remote. Long story shor,t, my wife HATED it! There's no "Previous" button, the Apple TV didn't seem to always record what you wanted, navigating was a nightmare, and in two days (!) she stopped using it and wanted the old DirecTV back. She loves her iPhone and iPad, but not Apple TV! Mind you, this was the old DirecTV that I found way to pricey and she found very buggy. Our receiver would lock up, reboot , and need updates far too frequently, and yet the navigation was soooooo slow and often seemed extremel;y buggy. I've considered Hulu, Sling, and others, only to have them not record the news shows my wife wants to see in the morning. I'm considering other services like Sling, Roku or Plex. Just subscribing to ALL of those seems excessive Anyone else had a similar experience and figured a way out of this morass? BSR

    Seems so. Haven't had any newer / updated versions since.

    Nice deal from SlickDeals: 960GB ADATA SSD $127.49 .13 per GB is the lowest I can remember for SSD. I have used ADATA SSD's with no issues: https://slickdeals.net/f/11899223-adata-ultimate-su650-3d-nand-2-5-960-gb-ssd-127-49-ac-free-shipping?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

    Oops that was DHCP and DNS not Domain. This video show setting up a Domain controller, around the 914 mark he is setting it up. I think if you shoose Private server instead of Gateway, it will turn off Samba.

    I still have brackets. I checked the ordering system and it all seems to be working. Are you clicking the 'check out with PayPal' button? It should not matter that your bill to and ship to are in different countries as long as both are PayPal approved. You can also send me a message listing what you want and I can send you an invoice.

    That is the idea. Only thing is, you passthru the entire 120 controller, so you loose your ssd datastore as it is on the same controller. You can also passthru disks via RDM but it’s a dirty solution and you loose the ability to read the mdadm raidset on another machine i suppose. You’re better of purchasing a sas2008 controller, can be had for $40~50 on fleabay.

    To clear up whether the card is faulty, not seated correctly, can you do something like backup your Windows 2012 and clean install Windows 10 Pro from Microsoft site. No need to activate it so you dont need a license. Let Windows 10 complete any updates. Even easier to do this if you have a spare HDD. Just remove your current OS drive and install the spare one. Remember you will need the Oct 2013 Bios (original or hacked to be able to do this with the inbuilt NIC enabled. If the card is still not detected then I think your problem is the card.

    Did you go into the BIOS and set the new card as primary?

    That is a awesome price. I just installed an 8zone gen3 and love it!! Well worth the investment.

    As far as I can tell Windows Server 2012 is based on Windows 8. So you should look for a Windows 8 64 bit driver. You could also try a Windows 8.1 64 bit driver. You did not say what drivers you had already tried.

    Getting rid of the disk drives will help with reliability, but electrical connections. SATA cables and add in cards can shake loose as well. Mounting the server with foam similar to the material it was shipped in, top and bottom should work. For SSD's, 1TB are around $200. There seems to lots of these on ebay, SanDisk 1.92TB SATA 6Gb/S CloudSpeed Eco Gen II SSD, I picked up one for $275, it works great. I ask about the inverter because they tend to output fairly square wave power. You may want to consider a pure sine wave UPS to clean up the power for the server. You mentioned Xpenology, if you like Synology you could look at one of these: https://www.synology.com/en-global/products/DS416slim#specs You would need to use 2TB drives, but it is very small and would be easy to mount.

    I have thirty (30) SDM-MSG8-R4 brackets left in stock. As production has ended on the HPE MicroServer Gen8, I will not be making any more of these. If you want/need one, you should order it now.

    I purchased one of these awhile back to play with. Needless to say, I modded it. I upgraded to 16gb of ram (for now). It's got an Adaptec 5805 running 4x2tb disks up front. Mini-sas SFF8087 cable to 4x2.5" sata enterprise grade hdds in the top of the machine I used a couiple of sata power splitters, and it works fine. I don't like CD/DVD roms as they are a waste of usable space & hardware resources, so I bent all of the brackets and guides out of the way to make space for the 2.5" drives. The hard drives sit right in the top tray, flat and clean and don't move around. I set up the 2.5" hdds in raid 10 using the onboard raid controller and installed centos7 on the machine. I configured the Adaptec 5805 + disks in raid 6, installed the adaptec linux software agent, to configure the storage as I didn't feel like rebooting it again, and loaded StoreMan by way of ssh into to the machine using putty and exporting all X11 traffic back to my windows desktop while running xming. Once the volume was configured, I then could see all the drives up front & in the OS which I then formatted as an XFS file system and mounted it. I also added an ASmedia 1062 controller (rev 02) so I could attach esata devices to the server, this card was chosen as it supports 8+ port port-multipliers. I then attached a MediaSonic Probox I had lying around and filled it with 8 1tb hdds to test in a software raid 5 volume. Then I built a bunch of windows vms on it, and loaded win 7 ent/win10 ent and stood them up. A note: If you set the cpu in virt-manager for these vms to use qemu64, they tend to use less CPU resources. Well, it all works fine and has been for a few months now. I do wish the onboard CPU had more cores/threads, but you get what you get. The next time I'm inside the machine (maybe soon) I'll take some photos of what I did to the inside to fit all those disks. With the 5805 I could probably cram 4 bare ssd's with some circuit & heat protection in there by using a couple more sata power splitters and another SFF8087. I don't think there are many people with 12 disks inside one of these things

    Dockerize everything, I run NZBGet, Sickrage etc all in Docker containers, I have not done Plex yet as I have yet to be bothered to do the migration.

    Hello, at the moment that is the last pack that exists for the G8. On its website the latest update is from 6 Nov 2017.

    It's simply the maker of the RAM chips. For server purposes where you can't run them above stock speed, there's no difference

    I've got a dedicated disk for the OS installs for the various VMs. It is a spinning disk though - surely that's enough?

    You should be able to present each hard drive as a new datastore in ESXi then create virtual hard drives on each Datastore. Within your virtualised Windows 2012 bring the drives online and create the storage space in the same way as normal. I presume you’ve got a backup strategy in place for your 10TB+ of data?

    So, since the thread started on here have had a look at my old Multipool account, seems there's just over $107 in there in various coins. Problem is a few of them have a minimum payout level, given that Multipool mins whatever is the most profitable ALT at any given point, you end up with a lot of loose change in random ALTs, anyone on here recommend a site where I can trade them for BTC/ETH/LTC or one of the other main coins? Failing that anyone got a DASH wallet I can throw these coins at who can then forward me $100 worth of BTC/ETH/LTC?

    Not knowing too much about the WHS and essentials roll requirements why not just use a NGINX reverse proxy, reasonably easy to set up. As a bonus, in this case, you can use a legit SSL certificate on the outside to secure things, without having to use it internally. The reverse proxy will terminate the SSL and retrieve the internal site (although if you are using SSL internally, it would be a good idea to use the same cert). One external link, multiple internal Personally, I have mine set up using the following settings for reference.
