    Openness and self regulation builds a better child in the long run, as long as there are consequences for stuff when they do go off track..

    By chance do you happen to work for this company? Having only one post here makes me think so. If so what do you do for iOS devices? Speaking of, there was a shakeup in the iOS world concerning these apps. I'm sure you have heard by now. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/27/technology/apple-screen-time-trackers.html I have yet to see a comprehensive list of the apps in question but one in my list was for sure effected. OurPact, Freedom, Mobicip, Kidslox, and Qustodio, and more. I need to go through the app store and dig around some more. I have also changed some things I'm doing with my kids. I think I spoke about it on RESET but I am giving more freedom to the kids as long as I still have access to the device and can look at history. I still will run some sort of gateway control to catch viruses and scams, etc. I also want to continue to encourage self regulation of usage. Having said that my kids still don't have official phones. Just and xbox and iPad. Phones will come soon and still might do some location type thing on them. My guess is that will also be taken out of the mix with some good behavior. Not real sure yet.

    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.

    Agree with @schoondoggy I usually recommend the plus in almost all circumstances. You said streaming, so yes. Go Plus.

    100 celcius? That's hot. I have a 1265L V2, which has a TDP of 45W vs your 69W, and I took the liberty of running a stress test for about half an hour. It's in an almost-closed cupboard and idles below 40 with the stock heatsink, and with the test it would not go past 81. This is all to say, are you sure your CPU is properly thermally connected to your heatsink? Does the extra 14W make such a difference?!

    I would say yes. The DS218+ has an Intel CPU and the ability to increase the memory to 6GB. The standard DS218 would likely handle what you need, but the DS218+ with 6GB would be better suited if you decide to run Plex or other apps; https://www.synology.com/en-us/products/compare/DS218/DS218+/DS218j/DS218play

    You can fit two 15mm 2.5" drives side by side on the bracket. You can't stack a 7mm and a 15mm as it would be too thick. You could mount one 15mm and mount two 7mm (stacked) next to it. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have other questions.

    yes I understood the command. About the drives, now that I checked and reconnected the cable, I see the 4 drives. I found the old version on the broadcom website, now time to flash !! It worked, I flashed 7.39.00.00 version through freedos on the microserver. Thanks for yout help!

    my first LSI 9217 4i4E was sold as the External port not working which it didnt detect any drives at all when i got it i took apart the casing on the SFF-8088 on the pcb (e.g. removed the metal shell) you cant do that with the SFF-8087 on the pcb dipped only the External port in pure isopropanol making sure not to go anywhere near the actual lsi chip (didnt want to remove any of the heatsink paste) left it for an hour or so soaking then left it to evaporate for another few hours its been fine since then (i use the external port) maybe the contacts are slightly bad on yours and p15 just ignores the problem with newer firmwares actually ignoring the drive because of it i would try dipping the internal header on the 9217 if i where you

    Class 10 micro sd cards have fast reads and writes and are optimum for that application. Get a brand name, like sandisk or samsung from a reputable vendor. There are a lot of fakesor rebranded crap out there. I think you pay a preminum for the highest capacity cards from a vendor 128 or 256 gigs seems to be the sweet spot for $/gig That being said get the largest drive you can afford

    The 9280 is a RAID card and does not support JBOD, but it can do single drive RAID0. Here is a good guide to help with part numbers for HBA: https://www.broadcom.com/support/knowledgebase/1211161496893/megaraid-3ware-and-hba-support-for-various-raid-levels-and-jbod- Here is a list of all LSI cards and their OEM versions: https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/lsi-raid-controller-and-hba-complete-listing-plus-oem-models.599/ Look for LSI 9217, 9205, 9212. The original card that people cross flashed to IT mode was the IBM M1015: https://www.servethehome.com/ibm-m1015-part-1-started-lsi-92208i/ Also watch for HPE HBA, like HPE H222.

    Let us know how they work out.
  13. 1 point
    Everything I see says they should work. They are DDR3-1600, they are 8GB, they appear to not be registered, they are tested, but you never know till you try them. If I needed ram for a MS Gen8, I would buy them.
  14. 1 point
    I feel ram prices are on it's way down, so I bought new from a store. Know what you are getting, guarantee and stuff. Not worth the risk with oversea buying imo.

    Here is a search string I use in ebay: 16gb 2x8gb ddr3 ecc -reg -registered -non -register Look for 12800 or 1600 for speed, no registered memory. I would look at this pair: https://www.ebay.com/itm/16GB-2-x-8GB-Super-Talent-W1600EB8GH-DDR3-1600-ECC-Server-Memory-RAM-R754/264307150169?hash=item3d89ef0d59%3Ag%3Atw0AAOSwrIpcyy-S%3Asc%3AUSPSFirstClass!55016!US!-1&LH_BIN=1 If you have questions about certain modules post them here before you buy them.

    As for external drives I have used the Sans Digital listed in this thread, the Silverstone is a good choice and the IcyDock solution is cheap:

    You can migrate RAID sets from the B120i to the P222 without losing data, but have a clean backup just in case. Migrating to SmartArray controllers starts on page 26: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c03326739 If you are using Drivepool why not go with AHCI and use an HBA instead of the P222?

    just an update, card came today, fitted and all working perfect, all five drives running at Sata 3 speed. only minor annoyance was one of the two screws holding the full height bracket was completely buggered like it had been chewed up so I had fun unscrewing it when fitting the half height bracket. And the card was sealed in the anti-static bag as well. i’m not updating the firmware as it all works fine as it is, knowing my luck I’ll end up breaking it anyway as it does not seem straight forward to do anyway. thanks for your help and advice anyway.

    I certainly did. Great detective work! does the bios allow you to change the serial port's configuration? Reminds me of the time I used a gen7 microserver as a router and had to use a USB hub for the firewall distribution to let me type into it during setup.

    Nice HBA for MicroServers four internal and four external ports: https://www.ebay.com/itm/SAS9207-4I4E-LSI-6GB-S-8-PORTS-PCI-E-3-0-SAS-SATA-HOST-BUS-ADAPTER-LP/253937005699?epid=1342137380&hash=item3b1fd33483:g:oIcAAOSwPF9chG3U

    Yup, I've used those in the past. I also like the Icy Dock EZConvert's and have two in my G10 MS.

    I always used ESXi at work and was considering using Proxmox at home mainly because of its web interface for management. ESXi can be managed through browser only when attached to a vCenter Server which need a license. Luckily I found that there's a beta project by VMware engineers for a WebUI for ESXi: this is still in beta and has some bug but it's promising. So I decided to go for ESXi, which is a more stable and mature product in my opinion (it's really the same that is sold and that I have in production at work on 30 hosts and 300 VMs...) I've suggested proxmox for a colleague and saw it when he tried at home....just a lot more complicating any easy task (like attaching an ISO to boot a VM from, etc). Yes it's all opensource and yes it has a more mature WebIF than ESXi for sure, but I would stick with ESXi. Just my opinion actually, didn't tried Proxmox in detail btw.

    Im looking to swap out the cpu on my microserver And all that people seem to post is ilo temps which are useless for the cpu Im after Coretemp Readings both idle and at load for comparison on Pentium, i3, Xeon's (mainly 1230 v2 and 1265v2 as thats what im looking at atm) to see the true power requirements of cpu's at both idle and load, and ofc die temps example a 69watt tdp cpu could well use around 45-50 watts max as a good 10+ is allocated to the gpu (which is disabled in the microserver) so there's 10 watts plus tdp knocked off also i want to see what true temps are like with stock hp cooling pref at the lowest setting Here's my G1610T as you can see the max it ever uses is 10.9 watts even though it has a 35 watt tdp In comparison My i7 2820QM in my laptop that has a 45 watt tdp will use around 43 watts Coretemp 1.0 RC7 needs to be used on windows 8 / 2012 etc RC6 stalls the pc Get it here https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=kZxUO7ZfyCzjqTS11R5HIkuTeBTUmIiASyX Idle 30 Mins Prime 95 Inplace Large FFT

    With the Xeon E3-1265Lv2 I used CoreTemp and OpenHardwareMonitor (in addition to iLO) in: and you can find other links to temp studies in the Gen8 Links page http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5639-proliant-microserver-gen8-links/ in Gen8 Temp Management Heading One of the links is to here http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/6762-anyone-who-has-changed-the-heat-sink-on-a-gen8-microserver/page-3#entry77590

    I get that feeling with almost everything HP does.
  28. 1 point
    You ever get the feeling that HP was going to say that it supports 16GB but gave up and stated it supports 8GB because they couldn't get it to properly recognize 16GB?

    That normally indicates that the system is right on the edge of compatibility. In this case, the RAM detection routine is sometimes getting the proper responses from the RAM sticks in the alloted time slot, and sometimes it's not. You may be able to get the system to consistently detect the RAM by changing the RAM timings and/or voltages in the BIOS. I used to do this when I was an overclocker. I would increase the clock rate of my system and it would become unstable, sometimes detecting the RAM correctly, sometimes not. I would set the system back to defaults, then boost the voltage to the RAM and/or change the RAM timings, then increase the clock rate again and try another boot. It was a processof trial and error.

    Hi Peter! Welcome to the Forums! I didn’t do anything with the Northbridge settings. I installed the 16GB RAM after flashing the MOD-BIOS. Full Disclosure – I talked about this at the meet-up: I have noticed that once out of every 7 or 8 boots/restarts it will only show 8GB during boot-up for me but my OS would still list 16Gb but with 8GB available. I correct that by rebooting/restarting and I’m back to 16 available. For a business production system that’s not good but for a home testing or “Play Box” that’s no problem for me anyway IMHO. From what I’ve read on other blogs last Winter & Spring the Patriot Gamer 2 PGD316G1333ELK has worked well for many people in Europe and Australia but now you have me wondering if that was more with the N36L. You can check the compatibility lists for the N40L at the HP ProIlant MicroServer Owner Club or on the HP MicroServer N40L Wiki as well as doing searches of the thread at the Owners Club. Of course YMMV -- I would suggest going to the HP ProLiant MicroServer Owner Club and beginning around page 400 various owners describe their trials and successes/failures in installing 16GB. The Modules in the Compatibility lists at the Owner's club and on the Wiki have all been reported to work from the get-go. In my own case I am using in my N40L the 16GB RAM from G.Skill (listed in my Parts List at The Icy Dock 5.25" Hot Swap Drive Caddy for a 2.5" and a 3.5" SATA Drive -- DuoSwap MB971SP-B ) while SBS-Diva is using in her N40L 16GB of Corsair RAM http://msmvps.com/blogs/bradley/archive/2012/10/30/hp-microserver-will-indeed-hold-16-gigs-of-ram.aspx?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter My only suggestion is to check the Compatibility Lists for alternatives to the Patriot. UPDATE 6-6-2013 Check out the RAM Links in the MicroServer HardWare Links Thread.
