    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

    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.

    Did you enter the B120i configuration software, SSA or ACU, to check for it? If it is visible in the configuration software you would need to set it up as a single drive RAID0. You could also turn the B120i off and run the onboard ports as AHCI, depending on what else you intend to do with the other ports. It is a good idea to unplug the cable from the motherboard and reconnect it. From the Amazon description it looks like you have the correct cable, SFF-8087 to SATA, which would be a fan out cable.

    I am starting this post to help others out a little bit with what I have been doing with my GTX 1060 card and mining. My card is a ASUS PH-GTX1060-3G that I bought off of Amazon for $215. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072172ZDK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It is advertised with a based clock of 1506 Mhz. I loaded ASUS GPU Tweak II on my Windows 10 PC to adjust the GPU. Current I am using the following settings. GPU Bosst Clock (Mhz): maxed out at +170 (1878 Mhz) GPU voltage (%): +0 which is the stock setting Memory Clock (Mhz): +800 (8808 Mhz) Fan Speed (%): Auto Power Target (%): maxed out +16 (116%) GPU Temp Target (C): increased to +9 (92°C) Frame Rate Target (FPS): no change I have no idea if these settings are optimal or not. They are just what I have tried. My actual GPU temperature hovers right around 78-80°C and the fan is only running about 55% most of the time in auto mode. Power Target Status is running about 99% but will go up to 118% on occasion. I am running NiceHash and it selects which algorithm to run. My system power draw is right around 165-175 watts (depends again on the algorithm). The Dailey estimated earnings vary between about $0.80 for the low to an average around $1.00 to $1.30 and highs have been seen around $1.50 for short bursts. My system has been running now for about 14 days and has used ~58.4 kwh of energy at $0.1166 / kwh ($6.81 in electricity) to mine $15.57 of BTC. I am netting about 56% of my gross income from mining. Not a bad margin. Of course I still have to cover the cost of the video card. Your mileage may vary but this should give you an idea of what my system is doing. If you have suggestions for improving the hash rate by adjusting this GPU feel free to suggest changes.

    You have got to stop posting these deals. I was perfectly fine using my individual remotes given I hardly ever watch TV, excluding college sports. Now you have me wanting to spend money for something that would be nice but definitely isn't needed.

    Hi everyone. Since I'm posting in this topic, I presume everyone knows I'm not actually Ikon. I am the aforementioned son, the relative non-techie who inherited his father's gear, licences, emails, etc., etc., etc. Believe me, there's a lot of etc. My father passed in 2012. For the past few months I've been catching up with what he did online (which was a lot). I have to say, though, that this place was his favourite, by far. My wife and I would go over to my parents' for dinner, or have them over to our place, and he would usually mention something about this forum. He said it was the most respectful, informative, and helpful forum he knew of. He said members don't tolerate ego-maniacs who want to insult others' lack of technical knowledge, or trolls who only want to stir up trouble. He said everyone is always ready and willing to give a hand up to those who are maybe just getting started in a particular area of high tech, along with passing on great tips for, and by, gurus. It all sounded pretty good to me. So, I decided to drop by, now that I'm a little more up to speed, both with his history, and tech in general. First, don't anyone feel too badly about my father's passing. He was quite old. After all, I retired the same year he died Second, after reading a lot of emails, posts, and so on, I see that he kept his identity private. I'm not sure of all the reasons, but I'm going to respect his decision. So what can I tell you about him, since a few people seem to be (respectfully) curious? First, he was a veteran. He fought in WWII and Korea. He was awarded a special medal of thanks by South Korea (we have it mounted, along with other medals, in a glass fronted box on the wall at my mother's. He didn't talk about his military experiences much. I thought it was because he was like a lot of veterans: he didn't want to relive those memories. Later, when I received documents about his military career from the government, I was surprised to see so many redactions. It was then I realized that he didn't talk about a lot of things because he wasn't allowed to. That also helped explain many of my childhood memories. My father was often away from home, often for several months at a time, My mother was left to manage the household. While this is pretty normal for a military family, in our case it continued on even after he got his discharge. A couple of times I asked my mother where he went, but all she ever said was, "I don't ask, and he doesn't tell". More recently, she admitted she knew he was doing work for the government, but she still says she doesn't know what any of it was about. I don't think he was a spy or anything. After all, he was a techie. I suspect he was providing technical support to others. It was just that what the others were working on was not for public consumption Oh, and one other thing: there was a project I worked on that required me to get top secret clearance, although I'm not really sure why. In any case, everyone on the project was amazed at how quickly my clearance came through (less than a week). Thinking back, I suspect it wasn't a coincidence. He liked to golf. He wasn't terribly good at it (he never broke 90, as far as I know), but he liked to get outdoors for a few hours. His specialty was low, screaming drives off the tee. He would hit his drive and it would start out a couple of inches off the grass and gradually rise up to a few feet in the air before falling back. We called them dandelion cutters. He also loved cribbage and bridge, and crosswords; also jigsaw puzzles. He liked to do work around the house, but he was terrible at it. I was the one that had to rescue him, on many occasions. I recall one occasion when I found him cutting drywall with a circular saw! What a mess; dust everywhere. You should have seen the look on his face when I measured his next piece of drywall, scored it with a utility knife, then snapped the sheet and cut the backing paper His comment was, "OK, from now on YOU do the drywalling". My mother looked at me and mouthed, "Thankyou". My father was also cheap. I presume that comes from living through the depression. If there was something that was a buck or two cheaper than another one over there, he'd buy the cheaper one, even if it was crap quality compared to the more expensive one. The whole family teased him about it. Nevertheless, he was married to my mother for almost 70 years. They raised a family, bought and sold several houses as we moved around, kept us clothed, educated, and protected. He especially took care of my mother. In the year before he died, he did something quite out of character; at least to us: he bought a brand new car. He had always bought used cars, usually executive driven ones from a dealership. To buy a new one was quite odd. He told me he wanted to ensure my mother would have a reliable vehicle for when he was gone, hopefully lasting until she could no longer drive. Well, his wish came true. Recently, my mother turned the car over to my wife and me. We now drive her around to medical appointments, shopping, visiting, etc. That probably says all that really needs to be said about my father.

    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
  15. 3 points
    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.

    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

    My server rack in the basement is a hot mess. I decided to fix it up a bit and am splitting it into a few phases. I just finished phase one and thought I would show you. Here is the problem. Rack of wiring installed by someone else. Coax and voice wiring are in a sub rack to the side. I've "borrowed" a few of the voice CAT5e lines to use as Ethernet. My first plan was keep the sub rack and run a cable ladder back and forth but I decided to run a few jumpers up the wall and come in behind the rack instead. That allows me to dump the side rack and leave it as it was when I first saw it. You can see in the photos that I also needed a wire rack on the side to hold some gear. I used to have a pfSense box and some mining rigs as well. Goal is to get it all in the 19" rack. One thing that makes it difficult is I have so many little boxes. HDHomeRun Ooma VOIP box Echo Connect - Hooks the VOIP line into Alexas. Fire TV Recast Netgear Cable Modem Synology RT2600ac Router DS415+ DS218+ Then I have the D-Link 24 port switch and somewhere around here I need to put in a POE switch for the Ubiquiti AP's so they will all be on battery backup. All these little boxes have to go somewhere. Here is the side rack. At this point the cable coming in is jumpered to my great room where the Synology router and cable modem are. I did this in order to use the Synology as the wireless AP. This is the panel I steal CAT5e connections to certain walls too. Also, the voice system for the house is here. I have to inject the Ooma box into the house so we can use normal handsets and answering machine. Here is the hot mess. Speaker wiring mixed with CAT5e. The amp on bottom hooks up to an Echo Dot to do whole home audio with Alexa. The UPS is on the wire rack as well as the NAS's. The HDHR is at the top which is out of frame. Here is phase one complete. I still need to power it all down and get the UPS moved. The HDHR as well. Side rack. I ran an extra CAT5e jumper and it's curled up in front. I may have to rethink this as the jumper on the top right is bouncing from gig to 100mbps. I may have to pull these jumpers all the way back and into the main rack and re-punch them down. My concern would be them reaching. Here is the new setup. On the top are all the odd shaped boxes. Conect, Recast, Ooma, then below is Netgear Cable Modem and Synology Router. (More on this below) Wiring section. Rooms on the left, boxes on the right. Speaker wiring. NAS section. Phase 2 will be powering it all back down and fixing up some wiring in the back. Power on one side, data runs on the other. Move the UPS, move the HDHR. Also, I may move from the Synology Router to Untangle. If so, I'm going to rack mount a PC and use the Synology router as a spare. I have the Synology wireless on. It's completely surrounded by metal though. Not far from this rack are two heater/AC units and tons of ducting on all sides. That's why wi-fi access points in this room are a waste. The only clients are in this actual room. I have wireless on right now and see if it will work ok with the Ubiquiti system I have on the floors above it. It's not a supermodel but I'm liking it so much better! Suggestions and comments welcome. I used to have a MacBook setup at all times with Ethernet. That way when I came downstairs I had something to do some console work with. I may set that back up at some point.

    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 and turn it back on if I need "admin" wifi in the future. Surprisingly, everything connected to it except my new Pixel 3 XL. It would bounce the connection and if it did connect it would be the "no internet" situation. I tried a lot of settings on the AP itself but finally fixed it by downgrading the firmware of the AP by 2 versions. I should probably report this to Ubiquiti but I'm now busy undoing all the settings on the AP that I tried. I kept a log of it in OneNote though. So far so good. I love the Controller software updates. It has come a long way. I have it on a Windows PC but would like to run the dedicated controller, or cloud key, in the future. I'm taking baby steps but will leave 1U in my rack open for that option. USG router? I'm not sure about that option but will explore it more when I get everything settled. I also need to try the app.

    LOL, I know I am digging old dirt here but I am in the exact same situation as the OP. My V1 server has been chugging along for over 10 years total now. Seven years since I rebuilt it on new hardware. Just got a 918+ from Adorama this week. Working on it now. The only thing I am likely not migrating to the synology is my weather station. I think I will put that on a pi.

It is cheap (70EUR) and seems powerful enough to do a lot of stuff: https://www.zotac.com/gb/product/graphics_card/zotac-geforce-gt-1030-2gb-gddr5#spec If anyone orders one and tries it, please share your impressions. I am also interested in the future for this one. Would be nice to know also the Fan Speed from iLO while using it and on idle.

    Sorry to dig up this old thread, but in case someone else find this post and is unable to work through the RMRR issue, I can confirm that you indeed need to patch the Linux kernel, but it works flawlessly afterwards. The RMRR restriction is Linux kernel specific, which explains why this works under ESXi, because of a patch that RedHat explicitly included because this causes major issues under specific conditions. This is explained at https://access.redhat.com/articles/1434873 More information and details on how to compile a custom kernel that skips the RMRR check at https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/tutorial-compile-proxmox-ve-5-with-patched-intel-iommu-driver-to-remove-rmrr-check.36374/

    Two quick "FYI" comments about NetSpot Pro: The earlier trial/free version that was available from the Mac App Store allowed you to perform heat map scans. The app prevented you from using some of the advanced features, but unlike the current version, it was actually quite usable. (So if you manage to find an older copy, you would be in luck). I had the older version, but bought the paid version as I wanted/needed the full functionality and felt it was worth it. NetSpot Pro will give much better results if the diagram is accurate. NetSpot asks you to select one line segment (by clicking on two points that define the line) and giving the distance you measured (or eyeballed). Then it auto-calculates the distance between all the other segments of the floorplan, so if you do draw it reasonably to scale, you will get very meaningful results. But you don't need an actual floorplan. You can "cheat" by drawing a simple rectangle and then clicking on arbitrary spots far enough apart so the scan results (circular clouds around the scan point) barely overlap.

    Hello Being disappointed by bugs on standard NAS products, i decided to build one based on OpenMediaVault linux deb. Found that Gen8 works fine for this purpose, i discovered this extraordinary rich forum. Have now a Gen8 + add 8G of Ram, 256G SSD and 4x2T disks. OMV works out of the box. Now have a E3 1265L V2 and looking for a good heatsink mod, i found a post in the forum with a great solution with bracket modification and fan placed between the CPU and the heat sink but can't find it again. Thank you for the help and the quality of messages on this forum.

    'despite the valiant efforts of beta reviewers to build hype for this product' As a beta tester (for fun, as a hobby) I am not trying to hype a product. I test the features and functions to determine if they work as the manufacturer intended. I test to see how easy it will be for the user to implement these features and functions. I then take this feature set and try to determine potential use cases for the product. I think I have been fairly unbiased on where the MS Gen10 will potentially be a good fit and where it will not. Please enlighten me on these 'valiant efforts' I made to hype this product.

    I wanted to see how well the EZConvert (by Icy Dock) would work in the Gen10 so I removed two 3.5" drives from the main Cage and loaded to WD Red's 2.5" drives in EZConverts and loaded them into the Gen10 MicroServer. Everything lined up and it was an easy changeout! Shortly after this I installed MS Office 365 onto the Gen10 and loaded some of my really big spreadsheets -- I thought the response was good and the graphics display of Excel generated graphs was great! IMO.
