    Insted of updating my Post's I was just thinking that I could create a new thread for the new SPP. I did install the new SPP and this following things was updated for me (I have only done the SPP 2017.04 before), If you want the latest updates for iLO you need to download it from HP's webbpage as iLO is only on v 2.50 in this SPP. So if you have only done the SPP 2017.04 I do recommend you to do this one also. And don't mind that it says Gen9 at the first update, it's the same as for the gen8. You can download the SPP on this link: HP SPP 2017.07.1

    There will be a MicroServer decorating contest and a MiroServer interpretative dance competition. If enough people bring their MicroServers we can have a stacking competition as well.

    I finished installation of Accelero cooler. The temperature does not rise above 50 degrees with 1265LV2 at full load. I had one problem with cooler dimensions. I froze the radiator in the water and cut off excess heat sinks with a metal saw straight on the ice. So had to do so as not to damage the plates and their soldering to the heat pipes. I do not know if someone did this before, but it's very convenient

    I tried to see if I could find out a little more info about Ikon because I too was curious. Not much to find but I am pretty confident that he was from Ontario, Canada. He was definitely one of the nicest people to post in these forums. Never one to stir up trouble and always ready to help others.

    Building a pool and pool house this summer and I'm bringing you along! I'm using a ton of cameras to document this including a drone, time lapse, and more. Stay tuned for every step of the way during construction and finally adding some technology to the pool house. Episode 0 - Intro to the build. Flyover, Plans, and walkthrough

    My daughter, age 11, has decided to move to a PC from her laptop. We put together this entry level gaming build. She picked the case: System board: ASRock AB350 Gaming-ITX/AC https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157780 CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 1300X https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113445 Memory: Team T-Force DARK 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2666 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313799 Video card: MSI Radeon RX 550 DirectX 12 RX 550 2GT LP OC 2GB https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137148 SSD: WD Black 256GB Performance SSD - M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe SSD - WDS256G1X0C https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820250084 Case: SilverStone Milo Series SST-ML09B Mini-ITX https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163356 PSU: FSP Group FSP450-60GHS(85)-R 450W Micro ATX12V / SFX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIABP94GR8137 Thoughts?

    .... after going through settings one by one it seems with UEFI only enabled was my problem

    one nice feature of NAS OS's like Qnap or Synology - you not only can back up to a external USB, - the backup program can mount/unmount the drives. So your backup is disconnected from the outside world for the great majority of the time.

    Dave, listened to the podcast; nice summary of the happening although there are two items that I think are inaccurate: First, the Crashplan Pro subscription is billed monthly, you do not have to have to purchase the whole year upfront as we had to for the home version. So after CP home expires it's $2.50 every month for 12 months. Second, there is no storage limit for Crashplan Pro. The 5TB limit applies only to the transfer from home to the small business subscription. They say it's a technical limitation but I think they want the 50 TB digital hoarders to start from "scratch". In any case the size of your dataset should not determine whether you stay or leave Crashplan; data beyond 5 TB just have to be re-uploaded.I don't think there is a cheaper place for that much data, $60 was just too low to be profitable. Finally, while they do not offer a cloud transfer program, one could argue that the two free months they are giving you should be used to upload data to a new service and the Crashplan will be there for two extra months while the upload completes. You can upload a fair amount of data in a two month period. It would probably be sufficient to reseed my 1+ TB backup. Cheers.

    Somewhat disappointing but switching now seems like the wrong move. First, we all got an extra 60 days free. Second, the first year after the home subscription expires is 75% off. That means it's only $2.50 per month. This is ~half the cost of the other services and you do not have to re-upload. That means I have 18 month or so before I really need to decide whether $10/month is worth the switch.

    Registered - ready for #BestMeetUpEver Looking like I'll bring Gen10 MicroServer - Maybe more

    So reading the latest news of the Microserver Gen 10, and despite the valiant efforts of beta reviewers to build hype for this product, I have to conclude that the new Gen 10 is a massive disappointment. My personal reasons are the following: 1) Based on a very old AMD platform (Jaguar). I was expecting them to at least use Ryzen. 2) Processor soldered to motherboard, so you can forget upgrading down the line. (This also means that a Gen 8 upgraded with a Xeon is going to completely smoke even the top-end Gen 10). 3) No bare-bones config available, if you want 32 GB RAM and larger hard-drives, you will have to discard the 8 GB RAM stick and the 1 TB hard-drive it ships with. 4) Having 32 GB of RAM would have been useful for virtualization, except there is no ESXI image available from HP. 5) No ILO (!!!) 6) Marvell-disk controller is not well-supported in either Linux or FreeBSD, so forget about running FreeNAS on this thing without buying a HBA for more $$$. Congrats HP, you sure managed to somehow remove all the useful features of the Gen 8, and design a complete turd of a product.

    Not much of a rack but I made it from an old chest of draws keeps my cables tidy and allows space around the different kit to allow it to breath. It's an old work station on the side I set up as a Xpen server to test out the resiliance of Xpen. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    Nothing really special but I just re did everything and added a wall rack to give me more space. I moved out some of the equipment such as my VM server and Security to other rooms to help the heat load. If anyone needs more detail I did post on my blog.

    If you are like me...you'll regret not buying the 3 eeros and always wonder if it was a better setup...

    Perhaps they don't actually know themselves where to target it, they've heard about people wanting a Gen9 so know there's a market but they just don't know what it actually is and where to put it, Home, SMB.. The Gen8 ticked a lot of boxes due to its cheap price and upgradability, something that I think they've completely missed on the Gen10

    I think its fair to say that HPE have changed the target audience for the Gen10..

    Yeah, I can show different ads to different groups of users. Typically I have not been showing them to any logged in user. I would like to continue that if possible. I have a mobile strategy but I have a few steps to go before implementing it. domain name, https, etc.

    I'm back and I'm going to steam roll on Meetup 17 business from here forward. I'll talk to a couple hotels near Meetup in the next few days. Hopefully will get us a discount on rooms. I'll also get registration up and running. I'm thinking about doing another HQ visit too. This year will have more to show with the pool and pool house up and running. Well, hopefully on the pool house as it has yet to start building! And, if anyone want's to present something original please let me know. We have had some fantastic presentations over the years.

    I have 7 monitors and only 2 cards. 4 on one and 3 on the other. I have tried them with and without SLI but could never tell the difference. I am not a gamer unless you count Flight Simulator a game (I don't). One card should be plenty for 2 monitors if not gaming. Any Gamer will tell you that 1 RX 480 is way better than 2 RX 460 because of the limitation of the 2 GB memory in the 460 (Crossfire would help this problem). Also any gamer would tell you to pay extra for the 8GB version especially if running 2 monitors. Vega is supposed to be here next month and one would think that the RX 480 8GB would then be priced under $200.
