    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.

    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
  13. 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

    was looking for a youtube video on Qnap's Qvpn product and right up there on the top search results was a Home Server show legend - Mike Faucher aka PCDoc He has been relatively active recently on his YouTube channel and from what I can see has been posting useful and interesting content of interest to Reset users. Much like he was back in the halcyon days of the HomeServer show - He was our "Joe Friday" - "Just the facts mam" The QVPN video was exactly what I was looking for search for his name on youtube here is link to his website. https://thedocsworld.net/

    I didn't see a post or sticky for introductions, so I figured this was probably the best place to start. Hi. I'm Ryan. I've been a HSS/RESET listener for a few years and have lurked the forums off and on and finally feel like I need to become a bigger part of this community. I'm going to paste my profile bio below and then expand on that a little bit. " My passion for tech started with our first family computer sporting a 66MHz CPU and 400MB harddrive. Discovering the world of DIY PCs in the late 90’s led me down an educational, then professional, path in the IT field, and soon I was modifying mice to add cooling fans, cutting up side panels to install case windows, and wiring in automotive LED and EL lighting products to enhance the aesthetics of my builds. There was no looking back. " As stated above, I work in IT full-time and have been involved in the enthusiast PC industry since the late 90's as both a consumer and journalist. I've had my hands on, and in, everything from low-level consumer gadgets to enterprise-level storage systems from today's biggest manufacturers. That being said, I'm definitely not an expert at everything, but I've experienced a lot. I've been a bit hesitant to hop into the cryptocurrency realm, as I have always kicked myself for not buying in when BTC was at around $20 and thinking that it going up to $50 made it way too expensive to get into. That hurt just typing that out. Listening to Dave and others like Jim and Mike over at Home Gadget Geeks has me wanting to get in on the action, so here I am. Sure, there are nearly endless subreddits and blogs I could check out and comb through to learn from, but I've always been a fan of traditional forums and the communities they build up over time. Plus, I already have a feel for what this community is like having been a listener for so long. Thanks for having me, and hope to see you on the boards!

    Random thoughts on some of the Smart Array controllers. Used P430 and P440 controllers have dropped into the $100-$135 range. These controllers also appear to work well in HPE UEFI based systems. For HPE servers with backplanes with female SFF-8087 connections, cabling options are fairly easy to come by. I have been playing with a P430 in the MicroServer Gen8 and Gen10. I had a female to female SFF-8087 connector to make the cabling work, but they are expensive $60. The P440 is a good choice for the ML30 Gen9 as the server board supports the battery connection. I will share pictures as soon as the forum will let me upload.

    Mirror the files on your Mac to your server and save $9.99. I have been charged $9.99 for my server and it is not so horrible that I will start fresh elsewhere. I have 2+ TB at crashplan and brief research shows that it won't be cheaper elsewhere. I agree that it is sad that the $2.49/month honeymoon period is over.

    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.

    Been on Project Fi for almost 2 years -- really like the service and price. Coverage all across the country has been excellent. Even my occasional trips into Canada What I like about it most is the low cost consistent pricing - I just don't worry about my cell coverage , regardless of where I am Been Trying to get my daughter on my project Fi "family plan" the holdup has been the availability of lower cost phones They discontinued the medium cost LG Nexus 5X phone and the only phones available have been the $700 plus Pixel phones Well, last month they announced the "Moto X4 Android One" phone available on Project FI and I just got it the past week. The 32 gig model was $400 bucks - about the same price as the LG Nexus 5x at launch. ( I really missed the boat when I didn't pick up extra 5X's when google was selling them for 199 bucks!!!) anyway - there are several project Fi users on the this forum and I thought I'd pass along my impressions Solid Phone - About the same size and feature set of the phone it replaces ( Nexus 5x) Plus's - Gorgeous OLED Screen Micro SD Capable - can use high speed cards as system memory or portable storage Dual Camera lenses - both a standard and a "wide" angle lens are built in. 3 gig of memory - runs fast and smooth. Minus's Front mounted Fingerprint Sensor. I really liked the rear mounted finger print sensor on my 5X. However after a couple of days use, I have gotten used to having the sensor on the front, but still believe that the rear mounted sensor is preferable Slick, slippery - the slightly curved, metallic body falls out of your hand or pocket effortlessly. I won't be using this with a protective, rubbery case. First phone I've ever considered getting a "protection plan" for. I know I will drop it Lack of accessories - You shouldn't expect the same ecosystem as the Iphone or Samsung phones - but at least the Nexus line had some support. Google doesn't even offer a case for it on its store. A handful of 3rd party accessories are available on Amazon. Anyway, if you where considering Project Fi, but didnt want to spend $700-$800 bucks or more on a phone - you now have something to consider.

    Well this sucks! Been using crashplan since I won a years license at a HSS meetup a few years ago. Been working great and its saved my bacon a couple of times. very Happy customer I like the way that Code42 is handling this transition would consider paying the extra 50 bucks a year for their small business version - at least that will let me kick the the can on a decision for a year or two

    ClearOS is a server operating system that is managed through a browser. It is designed to be used in the most optimal way for servers, headless. There's not a lot of activity required with a monitor and keyboard attached so we recapture those resources and optimize the server for performance without running an desktop OS on top of your server. The claim that there is no multi-monitor support and only VESA is supported is not accurate. The caveat here is that ClearOS doesn't ship installed with the drivers to support multi-monitor but in fact, the RPM to install them is kmod-amdgpu-1.1.0-1.v7.x86_64.rpm or later. But as I said, these are really not useful since users rarely stare at their server all day. But if you wanted to, if you need to, you can install the graphical desktop for ClearOS and it works pretty much the same as on CentOS/RHEL. This graphical environment includes video rates greater than VESA and in fact the platform will perform similar to CentOS and RHEL in most every way since it is based on CentOS. https://www.clearos.com/resources/documentation/clearos/content:en_us:kb_7_install_graphical_desktop_for_clearos The reason for the VESA comment in the errata is that the VESA mode is used in the install process for compatibility reasons in the console graphical login. The purpose of this graphical login that is separate and distinct from the instructions I linked. Principally it is geared to configure the network card up to the point that you can manage everything else from a browser. In fact, after registration the system will boot into a text-based TUI on terminal F1 and login shells on terminal F2 - F6. And yes, the processor is technically not supported by the linux kernel yet because it is fairly new and waiting for the completion of certification upstream. So if you want to use Linux at all on this platform, you will have to wait for it to be 'technically' supported in Linux distro that you use once it is available. That being said. I've run my remote office on this platform since April and it has been rock solid. If you want to do NFS then you may or may not encounter that load issue. But this is a problem on RHEL and CentOS as well.

    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.
