    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

    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 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!

    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/

    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.

    Well for one it can open any port it wants, if it's compromised it can open any port to any service and you are non-the-wiser to it doing it. Beyond that let's say there is a web service on something, let say a security camera. The web service itself is legit, but it uses UPNP to open a port to itself for easy access for you, but you may not want that and when it does that lo and behold your security camera is now on the internet for anyone to access. I hope you can and have changed that password and its not just an open stream, not to mention the poor security and updates on these kinds of devices to start with. If you leave the door open for what you want, you also leave it open for what you don't want. Better to have a little manual work to forward those ports and manage the allowed connections and be more secure than 90% of people than to be one of the 90%. Excluding big companies, high-value individuals and alike that are targets in and of themselves for a hack, the best security you can have is being harder to target than the next guy, most of these people who want to build SPAM networks want to get as many endpoints, not penetrate the hard ones. Bit like the old story, I do not have to outrun the tiger, I only have to outrun you

    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.

    (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

    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/

    Here is the card I picked up at Fry's. http://amzn.to/2ymD3kc It was $219 but has a rebate on it as well. I would have shopped more but had @jcollison in town to help me through the process of starting my wallet, etc. What cards are you mining with or are looking at?

    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.

    DAVE, It was GREAT to have all the support fro HPE with their wonderful products in the server market. Their sponsorship was greatly appreciated. Another supporter was IOMEGA. Their product line is always fantastic. Lastly, ACRONIS came thru with some great gifts.

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

    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.

    RESET Forums now has an Android app on the Google Play Store. I don't see it via search since it just hit but I have a hard link to it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tapatalk.homeservershowcomforums&rdid=com.tapatalk.homeservershowcomforums You can install it from there. If you are a TapaTalk user it will look familiar with one caveat. You login with your RESET Forums credentials, not your tapatalk creds. Once logged in you will notice more options for your interaction, notification, etc. I hope you enjoy this app. iOS is coming soon.
