    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

    In theory It should work with a SATA m.2 disk yes as it uses a SATA controller what I assume @schoondoggy was referring to is a HBA adapter that allows for actual SATA disks to be added

    I had the same problem. The solution that worked for me was to change the Power Regular Settings to "OS Control Mode" in ILO. Hope this helps.

    I am interested in (old style): - motherboards/NIC's for 10GBE (especially with AMD CPUs) - computer cases for lots of disk, say 12+ … and anything in the 'Home and Family' topic series. Have a nice show! 🙂 PS trying to update my next door neighbour's 2009 laptop (Windows 7, HDD) to Windows 10 as I write.

    You never use hardware and software RAID together regardless of the OS; it's one or the other. It's a wise person's errand on a fool's journey. You're looking for fault tolerance which is understandable. You're negating that with ZFS with a hardware RAID controller. If the OS is doing software RAID, it's doing the RAID functionality. If you're going to migrate to FreeBSD or FreeNAS (which is based on FreeBSD), you use the onboard SATA ports preferably in AHCI mode. The preferred configuration is RAIDZ2 which is software RAID6 under ZFS. The current school of disaster recovery is that the most likely point of failure is going to be a drive and not other hardware if it's on a UPS. You can have two drive failures before you lose the array in a RAID6 but you lose capacity over RAID5. You need a minimum of four drives to run RAID6 which is what you get with all gens of HP Microservers. If you're going to do a hardware RAID then you run UFS under FreeBSD. The HP P410 is supported under the FreeBSD ciss(4) driver if you want to do hardware RAID.

    Quick update, I installed the breakout cable, connected the SSD to port1 and the server booted correctly without any BIOS changes. Thanks again for the advice!

    The Microserver Gen8 has issues booting form the ODD port. If you are using the onboard SATA controller for the front bay drives, the ODD SATA port will only be bootable if the B120i controller is enabled, not AHCI. In your case it sounds like you have the front bays connected to your P212, so this should not be an issue. I would recommend using a SFF-8087 break out cable, connect it to the SFF-8087 connector on the system board and use the first SATA port from that connection. Of the four SATA ports on the SFF-8087 connector the first two are SATA III 6Gb/s so you will get the best performance from your SSD. Also there are no boot issues using the SFF-8087 SATA ports.

    A UEFI BIOS is required to boot from an NVMe drive. Your server does not have UEFI. You could use a PCIe SAS or SATA card to add a SATA SSD.

    BIOS requires entitlement, but mid 2019 HPE released BIOS updates for most Intel based servers to deal with security issues. Those BIOS files are free to download. All the other files found in the SPP are available for free download.

    Sharing of the SPP, which is now a paid for part of HPE support, would be illegal so finding a copy would be rather frowned upon and as @Dave owns the site he'd be the one that'd get the flak for it...

    Having Just got a gen 8 cheap off the internet, I thought I would install windows 10. The first part was simple, download the Mediacreation tool and make the usb installer. The second part, getting it to install on the gen 8, was a bit trickier... and the solution surprised me! Some of the parts have been covered here already, so I wont duplicate them. Getting into the bios to enable the smart array Setting up drives on the B120i Once that was done I plugged the usb drive into the internal usb socket and booted from it. But when I got to the select drive to install it on... no drive recognised! OK, I need a driver for the B120i, picked up the least one (cp033111.exe) from the HP website, extracted it and put it in a folder on the win 10 install usb drive. Rebooted and when I got to the same part of the install routine I loaded the drivers and hey presto the drive appeared, great, but when I tried to create a partition I got an error. We could not create partition... What? WHY? I had a browse around and tried cleaning the drive with diskpart the drive, but got the same error. Then I tried moving the usb installer drive from the internal socket to an external usb2 socket on the front. Then when I got to the same part of the install routine.... it worked! Then, once the install routine was complete there was the usual install of drivers. Now windows 10 is working like a dream! Hope that helps anyone puzzling over installing windows 10 on the gen 8.

    Hey All, I'll be making my trek out to the desert to see all the sights and sounds of CES. I'm not sure how I'm going to cover it this year. Last year I did a few vids, a few posts, and a single podcast. Probably be something like that. I'm scaling back my pace at this thing and just enjoying myself a little more now. I carry less and less with me every year! Hear anything? Post it here. Want to see something, post it here. I can grab photos, interviews, video, etc. Follow me on Twitter for some photos. I try to show just about everything. Some CES, some Vegas, etc. https://twitter.com/mccabeio

    D-Link has dropped a couple of new products and additions to their lineup of smart home gear. Hold on because there is a lot of gear! Let's start with cameras. D-Link has new Wi-Fi cameras, the Full HD Pan and Tilt Pro Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8302LH) and Full HD Indoor and Outdoor Pro Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8526LH). These are not just new, and good looking cams, they can now perform people detection and glass break detection. The new cameras also feature expanded ways for customers to save video, including ONVIF Profile S, which enables custom storage and streaming options to personal NAS devices, built-in storage microSD capacity up to 256 GB, as well as free and paid cloud storage options. This year's camera models include both an indoor and an outdoor model. The outdoor model features a spotlight and siren that can be triggered when motion is detected, deterring potential intruders. The indoor model pans around to give a full 360-degree view of any room and tracks motion. Both include two-way audio. Full HD Pan and Tilt Pro Wi-Fi Camera is the model (DCS-8302LH), available in Q2, 2020, and retail pricing will be $99.99. Full HD Indoor and Outdoor Pro Wi-Fi Camera is the model (DCS-8526LH), available in Q3, 2020, and retail pricing will be $119.99. One of my favorite products is Wi-Fi. D-Link has a whole lot of new products coming including Wi-Fi 6, Mesh, Alexa and Google Assistant integration, IFTTT, Parental Controls, and more! There are so many new SKU's that I can't make heads or tails of them! I'm going to be speaking with D-Link more this week and will sort all of these out.

    Latest Bios 2019.04.04(A)(28 Jun 2019) Latest ILO, 2.72(20 Dec 2019) The B120i was updated when applying the last Gen8 service pack from memory. However, all working now so all is well that ends well, I was wondering at one point if it was effectively going to write the machine off, which is a shame. My second youngest is now coming up for 6 and getting into Minecraft this may end up as his server now, I replaced the Microserver with an ML350p Gen8 which i got incredibly cheaply. Since they my servers have always lived in the garage it didn't make any difference noise wise. Although I am probably paying for it in electricity consumption.

    There is a move option on the UniFi Controllers, it may or may not work for Dream Machine I use a G Clamp (a cheap spring loaded one) to hold the power bricks for my devices to the underneath of my desk for neatness, you may be able to do something similar If you are going to speak to Synology can you please ask about the combo 10GBE/M2 adapter they were working on. I have heard nothing about it recently I do, do as you're suggesting. I have a TPLink Kasa smartplug and it turns on at 2AM (my backups come in from offsite first, then the local backup runs) the backup runs, then it turns off again. The only issue I have had with this is the backups do not always take the same amount of time. As such when verification happens it fails due to the disk being turned off. Last I checked there was no way to add a pre/post script to the backup task. If there was it would simply be a matter of calling the plug and turning it on/off but there does not seem to be this option in HyperBackup

    I dropped some coin on their Kickstarter project, be interesting to see the v1 frames that they have there, although they're not delivering them, they're moving straight to v2.

    Many thanks for that, I knew something like that existed but for the life of me I couldn't find it based on the search terms, no doubt hung up on it being the Storage Array Configurator or Intelligent Provisioning. Will give it a try later and see how i get on, I either wasn't aware of the B120i limitation for booting ODD sata or knew it and had forgotten it since 2015!!

    The MS Gen8 only boots from the ODD SATA port with the B120i enabled. You could try turning on the B120i and booting the server with the offline SSA to configure the B120i. https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_40057c5bb50b4197af4afdf478

    Standard ANSI screws do have a 82 degree included angle on the countersink You have to specifically search for "6-32 100 degree countersunk flat head screws" and who is able to ship in less than bulk quantities to your location Length may be an issue. You may be able use a slightly longer bolt, or can carefully cut to lenght using a cut off wheel on a dremel I once had to buy 600 4mm bolts to replace 2 bolts on a piece of equipment at work. 300 bucks !

    Blast from the past! Maybe Gulftown can chip in, and tell if he succeeded with adding a new fan to his own design to the Gen8? cheers! rob

    I fixed it for my server (ubuntu-16.04 on an SSD connected to the internal ODD SATA Port): In the bios go to: System Options => SATA Controller Options => Embedded SATA Configuration: Next in the bios go to "Boot Controller Order" and make sure that: I see the following output for the SATA stuff: And the server boots fine nowadays. Reboot, cold boot, kernel updates... Everything works! Not sure if interesting, but I formatted my root partition as ext4 which seems to be /dev/sde2:
