    How did you get em all packed in there? Still working on it. I could stack two on a side bracket, but I want to leave that open for a 15mm 2.5" drive. Now that the 2TB Seagates come in 7mm 2.5", I think I can fit four in the ODD bay with two stacks of two drives. Cabling is always an issue.

    I know @schoondoggy bought a 3D printer a few years ago but a quick search seems to indicate the model he got was not recommended. I am looking to purchase my own 3D printer. I have really wavered back and forth on this but I am once again sitting here wanting to print something and the resources available to me are really limited. Anyone have a recommendation? I do not want to spend a lot of money. It seems like the units from Monoprice are a good value. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with them. My next question is if this is something I am going to need to keep in the garage? I don't think the WAF will be very high if it makes the basement and the rest of the house smell like melted plastic. Current project ideas: Ring Pro Doorbell vinyl siding mounting bracket. New BBQ bit blower housing (I melted the one I had printed a couple years ago).

    1. Only alerted to me, boot continued. 2. The server adjust the boot disk automatically. 3. It seems the licenses are OK. The main reason to change it that facturation system is slow when new bill is generated, it is biggest Supermarket in my city. But it seems it is still equal may b140i be the problem? Today I'm gonna test disk speed

    I cannot answer your question exactly, I am looking for a solution to this kind of as well. However, currently, my process is to download the manual, scan receipts, warranty etc and stick it in a folder in my digital archives. This I have found works quite well. I was working on some software a couple of years back that managed this for me partially, it was an expanded "home inventory" software as some of the very basic assumptions made by most software in this field are fundamentally flawed, got it to a working prototype stage and then lost interest due to other projects, never got back around to it. I am thinking of converting it to web-based these days, but then I need to update my HTML skills, its moved on since HTML3/4

    Not sure my experience with disk swaps is directly comparable but ... My GEN8 servers have all 4 disk bays occupied. Each disk is configured as RAID0. One time the disk in bay 3 on one of the servers, containing only data, failed completely. With the server powered down I removed the caddy from bay 3, replaced the disk with a new one, reinserted the caddy and powered up. During the posting sequence, i.e. before OS load, a prompt like the following appeared: "NEW DISK IN BAY 3 DETECTED: PROCEED?" In other words one is offered the choice to accept the disk asis, which might be what you want. I believe the behaviour of a disk as RAID0 means the B120i controller won't touch it so things will carry on as normal. In my case I simply saw a new raw disk which I could then format in Windows and reload the data from backup. It sounds to me like you have a CD drive and a spare disk bay and can create a clone of the OS disk by booting to the Acronis CD. After you have created the clone you could power off, remove the old OS HDD and move the cloned OS on the SSD to the slot formerly occupied by the HDD (I suspect the OS has to be in the same bay). My guess is that when you reboot you will be prompted first with: NEW DISK IN SLOT 1 PROCEED? … to which you can answer 'yes' and cloned Windows should load. You will also get a red alert saying that a disk is missing - the bay formerly holding the SSD is now empty 'cos you moved it! You can clear this by telling SSA to delete that array, now or at another reboot. Another interesting question is of course what will happen to the activation status of 2012. If 2012 activation doesn't like being on a new disk then you will have to go through the 'I really do have a license for this' loops that MSFT has for recovering keys. I wouldn't start this process without knowing how to rebuild the existing configuration, in case something goes wrong (e.g. one time I tried to modify a GEN8 server which only had 2GB RAM. There is a fault in SSA which loses the RAID configuration for this amount of memory, so I had to recreate all disks from backup).

    Good Morning. I understand that the operating system is installed on the HDD and wants to pass it to an SSD. What you can do is incorporate the SSD to a new RAID 0 array, and clone from the HDD to the SSD. Then it tells the SSA that it wants to boot from the SSD and everything will work perfect. I do not know if it's really what you're looking for.

    I grew up with the idea that extended warranties were basically sales people swindling you; however, I've definitely benefited from extended warranties as of late. That being said, I still don't purchase an extended warranty outright. I simply make large purchases with a credit card that has an extended warranty built-in (in my case, 2 years on top of manufacturer warranty). What I do is simply save my order confirmation in a folder in gmail. Then if I need to file a warranty claim, I can easily find it and first determine if I go to the manufacturer or my credit card company. In either case, I have the receipt ready to go since it's usually required to file a claim anyway.

    Love your computer story! I remember being in junior high and even in high school and always finding an excuse for my parents to take me to Circuit City, CompUSA, or any other store that sold electronics. I would also pick up a copy of Maximum PC just to drool over all the latest gear. I especially lusted over the Sony VAIO Z505 which at the time was an incredibly thin and compact laptop. Of course there was no way I was going to be able to afford it as a kid, but I would dream of one day buying it. I also fell in love with the MX series with built-in minidisc and media center. I remained a Sony fanboy right up until a few years ago when they sold the VAIO line. My very first computer (as in MY computer that I bought) was the Sony VAIO W all-in-one. My first tower computer was the Sony RA series with liquid cooling and a whole terabyte of storage thanks to a RAID 0 config. And I also owned pretty much every funky niche VAIO device that they made like the UX, X, and P. Yes, a lot of money spent unnecessarily and no one to show it off to but it was SO COOL! And I loved it.

    I'm not using Ethernet back haul, but using the Synology mesh unit to extend coverage from my rt2600ac router in garage to the house. Previously used open mesh, which sort of works but always drops out. I agree, the process to set up the Synology mesh unit is pretty boggled, taking a long time to update and several power cycles.... if I wasn't a veteran network person, I would not have been happy. However, now that it is set up, speed and performance is all that I hoped for. Quite happy with it and the seemless Synology router experience the mesh unit provides. The Synology router is top of the game for features... the built in ad blocking is superb.... I've purchased and installed 6 of them, and am purchasing two more shortly.

    I need to pack away the 2.5" drives, but I do have 10 drives running in the MS Gen10. I have Windows 10 Pro running on a M.2 Crucial SATA SSD and a Toshiba M.2 NVMe PCIe mounted on the top PCIe card in the picture below: The bottom card is a Marvell based 4 port SATA PCIe x1 card, that is running four 2.5" drives. When buying cards for a MS Gen10 be sure they are not taller than the bracket. Here are the cards I used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BNWFFNK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01464550K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    No, you do not have to. You can bind the other VLAN's to the same LAN. You are on the right track. I only use two NICs because years ago when I wired my house I wanted absolute physical separations. That was a time when I did not use VLANs. Doing what you are doing is fine. Just remember to use different IP ranges for each VLAN.

    Good observation and sorry about the confusion but the video was done from the test environment. Port 3 on my Sophos router is 192.168.20.xxx not the 10.0.0.1 on my actual system. The VLAN is on 192.168.200.xxx. I used different ranges on the video as my test enviorment is setup a bit different. Every NIC physical or VLAN is on a different IP range. I hope that makes more sense.

    If I understand, then yes, you can have the VLAN on all your access points which will allow you to distribute IOT devices anywhere you want.

    one of the beauties of WMC was that (when it was working) it collected the pure unadulterated "file" that was broadcast and you could choose to watch it with something like VNC for full enjoyment.

    Oh, you stick it on the LED panel to dim them.... just in case there's no setting to reduce their brightness or turn them off in software. Blocking them with electrical tape will deprive you of useful indication so an automotive tint (the kind you stick on car windows) or something similar could be a good compromise. You'll still be able to see the indicators but it shouldn't be as bright as before.

    It should work. Could be a good way to use some of the smaller mSATA drives I have lying around. A mSATA drive in this should be more reliable than a plain USB drive, different FLASH technology.

    Hello, So, after several days of testing various different configurations, creating custom ESXi install ISOs and numerous reinstalls, I've managed to get ESXi 6.5U1 installed on my Microserver Gen8 and have working HP Smart Array P410 Health Status showing. For those that are struggling to do the same, firstly here's how. I used original VMWare ESXi 6.5U1 ISO, build 5969303 then made the following modifications: Remove driver "ntg3" - If I left this in, I had a weird network issue where Port 1 or 2 would repeatedly connect/drop every few seconds. This forces ESXi to use the working net-tg3 driver Remove driver "nhpsa" - this Smart Storage Array driver is what causes array health monitoring to not work. Remove to force ESXi to use working "hpsa" driver Add the Nov 2017 HPE vib bundles Remove hpe-smx-provider v650.01.11.00.17 - This version seems to cause the B120i or P410 to crash when querying health status Add hpe-smx-provider v600.03.11.00.9 (downloaded from HPE vibsdepot) Add scsi-hpvsa v5.5.0-88 bundle (downloaded from HPE drivers page) Add scsi-hpdsa v5.5.0.54 bundle (downloaded from HPE drivers page) I did the above by getting a basic/working ESXi/VCSA installation and then creating a custom ISO in VCSA AutoDeploy and exporting it. But the same can be achieved by installing VMWare's original ISO and modifying via the esxcli command. I have a SSD connected to the SATA port, onto which I am installing ESXi. The 4 front drive bays are connected to the P410. Configure the Microserver Gen8 B120i to use AHCI mode - the B120i is a fake raid card so only reports physical disks to ESXi. Leaving in RAID mode works but I got a false Health Alert on Disk Bay 5 Install my modified ESXi ISO to the SSD With these modifications I have a working ESXi 6.5U1 on my Gen8 with fully functioning HPE tools and array health monitoring: I also tested disabling the vmw_ahci driver, which is why the AHCI controller shows it is using ahci in the above image. If I pull out a disk to test a raid failure, when the health status next updates I can see a raid health alert in the ESXi WebGUI: However I'm now stuck at the next stage - getting this storage health to pass through to VCSA. VCSA can successfully see all other health monitors (under System Sensors in ESXi) just not the storage, which is the most important. Does anyone know how I can get the storage health working in VCSA? Thanks.
