    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 have started playing with mining and calculating cost versus profit. The most profitable mining I have found so far is SchoonCoin: These three cups were on my dresser and filled to the top with pocket change. I took them to a local grocery store with a CoinStar machine and walked out with an Amazon gift card for $285.63! Getting cash from a CoinStar machine will cost you 11.9%, gift cards are no charge. SchoonCoin has funded a new GTX 1060 for my daughters gaming computer.

    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

    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.

    Was having problems with my SAS connector/backplane and ended up just buying a new base unit. Finally got around to swapping everything over today, took about two hours, took pics of the cabling to show how I did it etc. Thought it was going to be a quick job until I took everything apart.. Decided to go with a simpler Akasa cooler this time so I didn't have to destroy the motherboard mounting plate, also I think it's more secure than the Noctua cooler setup I was using: Some heatsinks on the uh... I don't know what that is, but I figured it might help. Ok so, hard, to see what's going on here, but what I do is take the power cable going from the PSU to the internal backplane and disconnect that and insert a molex splitter - from that I get most/all of the power. Here is one of these cables: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000RH171M/ I was using this to get power from the floppy power connector, () but after finishing the build discovered the pins had been pulled out of the connector when I was stuffing all the cabling underneath the top tray, but I had one of these available so I ended up using that anyway: 2x Molex to 2x SATA power cables for the 4x M9T 2TB internal drives. Just showing the CPU hooked up. 2TB Internal SSHD drive. Just used some sticky-back velcro on the bottom of it and underneath to keep it down. (Seagate FireCuda 2 TB 2.5 inch Internal SSHD) Almost done... SAS cables plugged into the card and routed. Internal drives mounted using schoondoggy's Rev3 bracket. Would like to get blower fan on there but I can't seem to find one the right size. Other side. Finished after that. Thankfully turning it on everything worked except the 2TB drive until I found the broken cable and resolved that. Hope this helps anyone. Finished setup looks like this: Temperatures before: After in new shell: No load on either.

    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.

    Thinking about it, I thought you guys might like this: This is the main wall behind my father's test bench. I imagine he kept these discs here cause he used them a lot. If you look at the top you'll see his reset pin. And I only noticed when looking at this photo: notice the very bottom disc. Always planning ahead, my Dad. Oh, and yes, I did the drywall. I guess I forgive him for poking holes in it

    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.

    I am looking at upgrading the graphics card in my HTPC and am seriously thinking of spending a little more money and getting a 1060. Since it sits doing nothing most of the day, mining could help me pay for the better card. Jim if only you had done your presentation before we went to Fry's. I would have bought a card then.

    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
  32. 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

    Probably a historical relic? UniFi doesn't use Java at all. It isn't designed as a standalone a la carte system (buying just one or a few AP's). The key architectural benefit of UniFi is that is uses an Enterprise (some may say "Enterprise-like") centralized management model using an integrated web console to manage all their devices. From a "single pane of glass" you can manage Unifi Switches, Access Points, Security Gateway/Router, etc. Although individual products come close to "best of breed" on their own merits (and most exceed the typical consumer products like Eero, Orbi, etc.) I wouldn't suggest anyone try UniFi unless they are interested in a unified view of their network and/or plan on using at least some of their gear beyond simple AP's. Honestly, the systems to compare it to are Cisco, Open Mesh, Ruckus, Meraki, etc. In that league of product, UniFi is the only one that is widely available to consumers, doesn't require restrictive dealer training/authorization, and be purchased one piece at a time. In the consumer space, it is really suitable for the power user / hacker /expert that hates hardware that hides or limits features, considers the user "stupid" that needs to be protected from themselves, etc. Whereas with a Cisco or traditional gear you are going to have learn a cryptic, proprietary command line language and an entire philosophy of operation to configure and get the most out of the gear, Unifi can be completely installed and operated by very straightforward mobile apps or a nice full-size web browser. Uber users can SSH to any UniFi gear and have direct command line access to a real Unix/Linux kernel - if you know what you are doing, you can install your own modules and reconfigure anything - even things not exposed in the regular GUI web interface. Having said that, many of their products can be used as "dumb" hardware devices if you don't actually configure them (e.g. they have a nice line of 8-port PoE Smart Ethernet switches, but if you just plug them in and use them they work fine as "dumb" switches.) In particular, the AP's by themselves can be set up in "standalone mode" with a few clicks of their smartphone app. You don't get all the benefits of the centralized management system, but you can do it (I say don't; stick with Eero or other things if you aren't going to use real capability of UniFi).

    (apologies if this has already been posted!) A few days ago HPE released an updated BIOS, which (when combined with operating system updates) mitigates spectre variant 4, as well as providing the latest microcode from Intel for variant 3a. It looks like anyone can download the BIOS - no entitlement is required for downloading. Links: Linux Windows (x64) Windows (x86) VMware
