  1. I received the card and put it in my server. I can confirm that the card works in the Microserver Gen8!

  3. It depends on the card you are using, on my card i didn’t need to do anything. But if the card you choose doesn’t have an inbuilt switch you will need to enable PCIE bifurcation in the BIOS.

  4. Hi, I also got crazy having this problem (no sata disks were recognized at all), but then I found out what the reason was: The Gen8 has its 5.th disk slot on the top. This slot gets his energy via the 4 pin cable that comes from the ground. But there are two wires coming from the ground. One from the mainbord (for power delivery), the second GOES to the internal sata disks. So doublecheck that these two cables are connected again after removing you 5th disk. Otherwise, the 4 internal sata slots dont have power at all. Best regards dontspeak

  5. I have not tried h.265, but this is a good chart defining which cards support it. Looks like 1030 or 1050 are supported and each is available in low profile. Nvidia NVDEC - Wikipedia

  6. So your carts should be the HP415 series, W2030A will be black, W2031A cyan, W2032A yellow, W2033A magenta. If you want the XL carts then replace the A with an X.

  7. There are generally 2 sizes for HP printers, a 'normal' capacity one and an XL one, the XL one will be larger and hold more toner, they tend to be close to 3x the number of pages and double the cost. Why HP do this, I have no idea, but they've done it for as long as I can remember. Compatible cartridges can be funny, I don't use them while a printer is in warranty, even though some cartridge manufacturers will say they'll cover any warranty claims on the printer when using their carts. The other issue is, you have no idea how old a cartridge is and how many times its been refilled, so the tolerances between the rollers and gears and other parts of the cartridge could be way out and then it leak toner crap inside the printer, not a good thing..

  8. not really an answer but a few cautions from a laserjet owner * be very careful to buy toner that exactly matches your model of printer, hp has many different ones and the cartridges are not interchangeable * if you decide to 'save 50 bucks' with 3rd party toner, be careful about the 'chip' that HP sticks on theirs - some 3rd party toners come without the 'chip' and you have to try to find those, and some hp printers are extra picky about the chip. even if the chip lets a 3rd party cartridge work, the printer may not show you how much capacity is left * the toners most likely come in two 'sizes' in terms of number of pages printed and this is an important factor in looking at the prices * if the toner tray won't go in gently, don't force it, check that the cartridges are in properly, and if so, maybe one isn't the right model.

  9. It looks like a low profile card, but I am not seeing the low profile bracket that would be needed to fit in a MS Gen8. This board includes the low profile bracket: https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Graphics-Card/GV-N1030D4-2GL#kf

  10. @schoondoggyposted the plans for these a while back, might be worth having a search or see if he pops up in this thread given I just tagged him..

  11. Maybe, if you enable SSH and SSH into the router and find a command that lists DHCP leases? I'm sure there is some way to get it out of the router without relying on screen-scraping tools which can be a pain to get working correctly.

  12. Yes, it works perfectly. I've been using it for a week or so... AHCI mode works best so that Windows can use it's own drivers and not the pesky RAID driver. USB internal - Ubuntu Desktop (Just so we can use it as the boot loader) SSD 5th drive - Plugged into the internal SATA port HDD - Four drives in the front bays which are used as a parity raid via windows storage spaces Windows installed quick and completely default. Just download the ISO from MS and write it to a USB stick with Rufus tool. (You can present it via ILO but I found that slow and unreliable.) Install Windows, set up Storage Spaces and you're good to go.

  13. Honestly.... the easiest way to do this is to just install a full version of Ubuntu Desktop with GRUB2 and let it be the default boot loader. You can easily make changes in the future and it's so simple and quick to set up. Set your BIOS to AHCI The first thing to do is install Windows or whichever OS you want on the 5th SATA port. The key to this is to have it be the only drive plugged into the system and it'll boot fine. Remove the front drives, all USB, etc I just installed Windows Server 2022 this way and it ran perfectly in AHCI mode. Once that Windows OS or other is setup and running, power the server down and unplug that SATA port. Double check - Unplug all drives, SSD, front HDD etc Install the target boot USB stick in the internal slot (32GB is plenty) this is where to install Ubuntu Download Ubuntu Desktop ISO and flash to another USB stick. https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop Use Rufus to write the ISO to USB https://rufus.ie/en/ Mount the Ubuntu stick in the front port with a keyboard Get Ubuntu installed as GUI but a minimal install to the internal USB. It's a full desktop so it can be handy, but I've only installed the basics. Install one new tool on the Ubuntu server called - Grub Customizer Open a terminal and type sudo apt install grub-customizer Shutdown the server Unplug the Ubuntu installer USB stick from the front. Plug back in your SDD on the internal SATA port Plug back in your front drives Leave your newly installed Ubuntu in the internal USB port as we want to boot from this al the time. Boot into BIOS and set the default boot to be USB. This is critical The Ubuntu Desktop will still boot from the internal USB Run the tool - Grub Customizer from within Ubuntu It will scan and detect all of your drives looking for operating systems It'll find your Windows install as "DOS" so move that to the very top of the list as the default entry Rename it to something meaningful - Windows Server for example Make the Ubuntu entry second Delete all other entries in the list Save Reboot and the server will automatically boot from USB, then load your OS from the 5th SATA port automatically.

  14. I have a 14tb and a 3tb currently in mine, so 16tb isn't a limit as far as I am aware. Its more likely that its a limit per drive, so only 16tb each drive, although at the time of them writing the spec I doubt there were drives bigger?? I don't know.

  15. Yes I have, but oddly the server only seems to register the 2 SSDs in HP Storage Administrator for some reason, even though my 2 x 6TB HDDs are usable in the OS. Bitlocker therefore also only seems to be able to be configured on the SSDs also.
