  2. As I do not plan to build any more of the SDM Rev4 brackets, I have decided to share the schematic. https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ao9ObX1BCpuXsstkeE7Jc5cyRmYTFQ?e=8ouDcP Edit- This is a Visio file. If you download it and open it Visio you will see the scale of the drawing.

  3. I must say this is a life-saving source of useful information about the Gen8 MicroServer! And speaking as someone resurrecting their Gen8 with a rebuild, it has proven to be extremely useful. My thanks to all who have added and curated this list of links and details. 🙂

  5. Have you seen the Serve The Home Guide? https://www.servethehome.com/hpe-proliant-microserver-gen10-plus-ultimate-customization-guide/ there is a lot of information in there. The server also is not limited to 32GB incase you weren’t aware, i’m running 64GB in mine.

  6. Thanks for the reply. It turns out I’d bent a few pins on the CPU socket. God only knows how!! I managed to carefully bend the pins back and I’ve managed to boot up with RAM slots 1 and 2 populated. All seems to be running ok for now. Spot the bent pins in the pic 😬

  8. Thanks for guidance on this! Just a note on the solution I settled with in the end for anyone else who might come across this thread looking to do the same thing - Tried a couple different cheaper eSATA cards with no success having the drives in ICYCube detected in CentOS. Looked into driver issues and again with no luck. The USB connection did work fine, but I wasn't overly happy with that as a solution. I instead got this HBA (10Gtek Host Bus Adapter - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M9GRAUM) with Mini SAS connection, and swapped the ICYCube for an alternative

  10. I would check all of your existing WD Reds to see if you have any that are SMR drives. SMR should not be an issue with DrivePool, but you never know. Even though WD owns Hitachi HGST I find their drives to be consistently good. Toshiba drives are good, specifically their NAS drives. Seagate NAS drives like IronWolf seems to be doing well. Best price per TB is buying WD externals and shucking them, but you can never be sure of what you will get. Depending on the drive model and the system you are putting them in, you may need to modify the 3.3v pin. I needed to add some drives to exis

File services of course Surveilliance cameras A podcast-feed (I'm not podcasting - it was just for fun to see how to make a podcast stream work) Backup of my oneDrive cloud data Workstation backup, and now the Ubiquiti Controller.

  15. I just bought because of this news 4x 14TB hard disks from Seagate (Ironwolf Pro). I hope I made a good decision to going on with Seagate and not with WD anymore. My good old 4x 4TB WD Reds are more than 5 years old and I was looking for an upgrade. Gladly the news about more "marketing speech" on WD products came just in time before my buy. :-D

  16. It's really amazing. I just fired up my old HP MediaSmart EX490 server (which was in fully working condition, just no longer in active duty). Then I went to \\HPMEDIASMART\Software\Home Server Connector Software folder. Installed the WHS Connector software. After a brief "Hey, you need .net framework "-installation", the client was installed., It detected my HP MediaSmart server right away and asked if it should back up the PC. I then went to the WHS Server Console, selected the PC and clicked "Backup now". And it worked! My PC is now backed up.

  17. All credit to schoondoggy for his original idea. A shame I am on the wrong side of the Atlantic to order an SDM kit as the import duties make it an expensive option, or would have if they were still available. I had to look around to see what alternatives I could find... and managed to find the bits needed on Amazon! I must admit I am rather pleased with the end result of this project and may repeat it on the other Gen8 MicroServer. The outcome is a server with a mirrored system drive on the internal B120i, and the main drive bays connected to an HP P222 card providing a RAID-10 da

  18. Hellooooo everybody. As time has finally come and all required parts has arrived, I am presenting you my long struggling upgrade of the CPU + Noctua cooler. All is reversible with no permanent destruction. (At least, I hope ). And CPU fan is working according main case FAN. Upgrade is about to have a new CPU: Xeon E3-1270 V2 with noctua fan: NH-L9i, installed together and cpu fan would work according main case fan. (so if case fan spinning fast, cpu fan too. And vice versa). 1, CASE: ------------- At first, the case needed to be modified

  22. Ah. Had this same issue with WS202 R2. It is caused by updating the .NET version from the default 4.5 version that installs with the OS. I was able to simply rollback the server to the original version and not update it to latest future versions like 4.8, etc and everything is fine. Unfortunately the Dashboard simply isn’t compatible with the newer versions of .NET. The result is crashing Dashboard and hung up statuses as you’ve seen.

  24. Yes, for me the RAM was the limiting factor as well. I moved onto a DL360 Gen8. Issue with the MS is even if you can fit a mini-ITX board into the case with another low-profile CPU fan, you'll have to do some heavy modding to the I/O area as it's not removable. I tried to do something similar with the HP Z820 workstation because the case is really quite nice. Unfortunately the amount of modding required was beyond my skill and the effort didn't seem to be worth it.

  25. TDP of 69W is very high, even with the 65W replacement cooler from HP that costs a fortune, so I personally wouldn't use that CPU.

  33. Hi all, Here's a guide I would like to share around Windows Storage spaces and creating a 4x drive Parity pool In a nutshell I have Windows Serer 2019 and storage space parity pool running very nicely on my Gen8. Here's the configuration I used and How to copy my setup. (I still believe ZFS or UnRAID are far better choice as a filesystem on these limited servers, but if you need Windows like I do, then storage spaces can be an excellent alternative.) This is my "best effort" guide and by no means perfect. It does however yield excellent results for both

  46. Well for one it can open any port it wants, if it's compromised it can open any port to any service and you are non-the-wiser to it doing it. Beyond that let's say there is a web service on something, let say a security camera. The web service itself is legit, but it uses UPNP to open a port to itself for easy access for you, but you may not want that and when it does that lo and behold your security camera is now on the internet for anyone to access. I hope you can and have changed that password and its not just an open stream, not to mention the poor security and updates on these kinds of de

  47. I couldn't wait. But you guys knew that would happen right? Here it is in the air. Simulated ceiling mount! It's on a microphone stand that is on a high shelf so it's up in the air pretty good. This is on the top floor, middle of the house. Signal reaches all over the top and middle floor. In far off spots it's not great signal but it is there. This is all while two synology devices are blasting PLUS two Orbi units are going full blast. Not bad and I look forward to turn off those devices and just using the Synology as the router. I'll change its SSID and turn it off

  48. This is the latest SPP to download. The service packs no longer contain Gen8 updates, so HP releases these "post-production service packs." Funnily enough the 8.1 pack freezes on analyzing system when it runs on both my Microserver Gen8 and DL360p Gen8. So I've manually updated in Windows. http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx?version=Gen8.1 Use this link, click on the appropriate OS you have and then sort by date. https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/home/driverHome?sp4ts.oid=5390291 My own notes have my server

  49. I have been using the TIVO Arris MG2 DVR and 4 TIVO Pace Mi3 minis across 5 TVs in my house for the last couple years. I live in an area where TV stations are all 50-100 miles away. OTA signals are bad. Can't beat TIVO except for the price. The TIVO Arris MG2 DVR hands a 1080p signal to my SONY XBR-65A1E (OLED) which upscales to 4K Dolby Vision signal. Beautiful picture. The DVR has 6 tuners and can playback 5 at one time, while still recording on the 1 remaining. Start viewing recording on living room TV, pause and finish it on the bedroom TV, without skipping a beat. There's no need to
