    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Depending on the area I am trying to cover, mounting a WAP high on a wall can sometimes be easier, mounting a box and running cable, than ceiling mounting.

    This is the latest SPP to download. The service packs no longer contain Gen8 updates, so HP releases these "post-production service packs." Funnily enough the 8.1 pack freezes on analyzing system when it runs on both my Microserver Gen8 and DL360p Gen8. So I've manually updated in Windows. http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx?version=Gen8.1 Use this link, click on the appropriate OS you have and then sort by date. https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/home/driverHome?sp4ts.oid=5390291 My own notes have my server at the following, running Windows Server 2019 Standard. I don't have any "entitlement" but I've been able to download all these updates.

    I have been using the TIVO Arris MG2 DVR and 4 TIVO Pace Mi3 minis across 5 TVs in my house for the last couple years. I live in an area where TV stations are all 50-100 miles away. OTA signals are bad. Can't beat TIVO except for the price. The TIVO Arris MG2 DVR hands a 1080p signal to my SONY XBR-65A1E (OLED) which upscales to 4K Dolby Vision signal. Beautiful picture. The DVR has 6 tuners and can playback 5 at one time, while still recording on the 1 remaining. Start viewing recording on living room TV, pause and finish it on the bedroom TV, without skipping a beat. There's no need to go to a football game, I have the real thing on my TV. STARZ Outlander is absolutely gorgeous. HBO Game of Thornes is fantastic. AMC The Walking Dead is too real. Showtime Homeland is great. CBS All Access delivers scary Star Trek Discovery. Netfix, Hulu, and Prime are all first rate. Sound is handled by a SONY HT-ST500 soundbar providing Dolby Atmos 7.1 channel signals. Sometimes the soundtrack is as good as that heard at the movie theater. All devices are hard-wired to our household network connected to a 100M internet service. The TIVO devices are connected using a MoCo 2.0 network. I also have 2 AppleTV 4Ks, and a Sling TV Box attached to my system. I sometimes use the Sling TV Box to watch DVR recordings remotely (like while waiting in a doctors office) using my iPad or iPhone and AirPods. I control the living room TV and soundbar with a Logitech Harmony 650 remote. I also use a Bluetooth Logitech Keyboard (K380) for some programming. I still have my Windows Server 2016 attached, backing up 6 home laptops, and storing my iTunes collection of music and movies.

    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.

    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).

    I need to pack away the 2.5" drives, but I do have 10 drives running in the MS Gen10. I have Windows 10 Pro running on a M.2 Crucial SATA SSD and a Toshiba M.2 NVMe PCIe mounted on the top PCIe card in the picture below: The bottom card is a Marvell based 4 port SATA PCIe x1 card, that is running four 2.5" drives. When buying cards for a MS Gen10 be sure they are not taller than the bracket. Here are the cards I used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BNWFFNK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01464550K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    How did you get em all packed in there? Still working on it. I could stack two on a side bracket, but I want to leave that open for a 15mm 2.5" drive. Now that the 2TB Seagates come in 7mm 2.5", I think I can fit four in the ODD bay with two stacks of two drives. Cabling is always an issue.

    Hello, So, after several days of testing various different configurations, creating custom ESXi install ISOs and numerous reinstalls, I've managed to get ESXi 6.5U1 installed on my Microserver Gen8 and have working HP Smart Array P410 Health Status showing. For those that are struggling to do the same, firstly here's how. I used original VMWare ESXi 6.5U1 ISO, build 5969303 then made the following modifications: Remove driver "ntg3" - If I left this in, I had a weird network issue where Port 1 or 2 would repeatedly connect/drop every few seconds. This forces ESXi to use the working net-tg3 driver Remove driver "nhpsa" - this Smart Storage Array driver is what causes array health monitoring to not work. Remove to force ESXi to use working "hpsa" driver Add the Nov 2017 HPE vib bundles Remove hpe-smx-provider v650.01.11.00.17 - This version seems to cause the B120i or P410 to crash when querying health status Add hpe-smx-provider v600.03.11.00.9 (downloaded from HPE vibsdepot) Add scsi-hpvsa v5.5.0-88 bundle (downloaded from HPE drivers page) Add scsi-hpdsa v5.5.0.54 bundle (downloaded from HPE drivers page) I did the above by getting a basic/working ESXi/VCSA installation and then creating a custom ISO in VCSA AutoDeploy and exporting it. But the same can be achieved by installing VMWare's original ISO and modifying via the esxcli command. I have a SSD connected to the SATA port, onto which I am installing ESXi. The 4 front drive bays are connected to the P410. Configure the Microserver Gen8 B120i to use AHCI mode - the B120i is a fake raid card so only reports physical disks to ESXi. Leaving in RAID mode works but I got a false Health Alert on Disk Bay 5 Install my modified ESXi ISO to the SSD With these modifications I have a working ESXi 6.5U1 on my Gen8 with fully functioning HPE tools and array health monitoring: I also tested disabling the vmw_ahci driver, which is why the AHCI controller shows it is using ahci in the above image. If I pull out a disk to test a raid failure, when the health status next updates I can see a raid health alert in the ESXi WebGUI: However I'm now stuck at the next stage - getting this storage health to pass through to VCSA. VCSA can successfully see all other health monitors (under System Sensors in ESXi) just not the storage, which is the most important. Does anyone know how I can get the storage health working in VCSA? Thanks.

    Just in case you are not aware of it yet, a new firmware v2.6 for HPE Integrated Lights-Out 4 has been released. Critical - HPE requires users update to this version immediately. Install this update to take advantage of significant improvements to the write algorithm for the embedded 4 GB non-volatile flash memory (also known as the NAND). These improvements increase the NAND lifespan. https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=1009143853&swItemId=MTX_3fad75bc084d4a9aa97e68ee98&swEnvOid=4184 Unzip the exe to extract the file ilo4_260.bin. Perform update via ILO's Administration > Firmware > Choose file.

    (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

    I purchased one of these awhile back to play with. Needless to say, I modded it. I upgraded to 16gb of ram (for now). It's got an Adaptec 5805 running 4x2tb disks up front. Mini-sas SFF8087 cable to 4x2.5" sata enterprise grade hdds in the top of the machine I used a couiple of sata power splitters, and it works fine. I don't like CD/DVD roms as they are a waste of usable space & hardware resources, so I bent all of the brackets and guides out of the way to make space for the 2.5" drives. The hard drives sit right in the top tray, flat and clean and don't move around. I set up the 2.5" hdds in raid 10 using the onboard raid controller and installed centos7 on the machine. I configured the Adaptec 5805 + disks in raid 6, installed the adaptec linux software agent, to configure the storage as I didn't feel like rebooting it again, and loaded StoreMan by way of ssh into to the machine using putty and exporting all X11 traffic back to my windows desktop while running xming. Once the volume was configured, I then could see all the drives up front & in the OS which I then formatted as an XFS file system and mounted it. I also added an ASmedia 1062 controller (rev 02) so I could attach esata devices to the server, this card was chosen as it supports 8+ port port-multipliers. I then attached a MediaSonic Probox I had lying around and filled it with 8 1tb hdds to test in a software raid 5 volume. Then I built a bunch of windows vms on it, and loaded win 7 ent/win10 ent and stood them up. A note: If you set the cpu in virt-manager for these vms to use qemu64, they tend to use less CPU resources. Well, it all works fine and has been for a few months now. I do wish the onboard CPU had more cores/threads, but you get what you get. The next time I'm inside the machine (maybe soon) I'll take some photos of what I did to the inside to fit all those disks. With the 5805 I could probably cram 4 bare ssd's with some circuit & heat protection in there by using a couple more sata power splitters and another SFF8087. I don't think there are many people with 12 disks inside one of these things

    Connect a network lead to the other port on the back, not the two next to each other. Hopefully you still have access to the luggage tag attached to the rear of the server, you'll need it. Find the ip address of the ilo port, I use Fing app on smartphone, but you can find it by accessing your routers settings. Enter that ip in a web browser, and that should take you to a login page Enter the details from the above luggage tag into the page, and if all is ok, you should have just logged into ilo. Hopefully this at least will let you get to see something...

    In AHCI mode the MS Gen8 will only boot from the ODD port if there are no drives in the front bays. There is no boot priority setting in AHCI. Using the B120i you can boot from any drive. You can use a bootloader to use AHCI and boot from the ODD port:

    Since Richard is running the mini box, the Synology gets my vote. I am definitely happy with my Synology so much so they keep multiplying, up to 4 with 2 expansion bays. I run Plex on an old gaming PC and simply point to my network mapped Synology shares. From limited research with Qnap they have some way to replicate Synology's SHR and SHR2, but it sounded more like a hack. Admittedly I didn't do a deep dive into it though since I have been happy with Synology. On the topic of SHR and disk use. Their handy RAID calculator is great for playing around with various scenarios. https://www.synology.com/en-us/support/RAID_calculator SHR will use the smallest drive to determine the amount of free space up to the third drive. Upon adding the fourth drive it will add whatever size drive the next smallest drive so 2x1TB and 1x4TB and 1x8TB will net you 6TB with 4TB unused until you match the 8TB. SHR2 extends this to the sixth drive which is why I only run SHR2 in the 8+ bay models.

    I think the hole is for an M3 countersunk, but the Gen8 ODD bracket does not work in the Gen10. I tried mounting the bracket upside down after drilling a small hole in it that aligns to the mounting hole in the chassis. I used a nylon screw to secure it, so as to not have any metal dust. It works, but it is not something I can manufacture. There are 3D printer plans for brackets that will work.

    I got into computers because of bad handwriting ...... in eight grade, Sister Mary Perpetua ( real name) took me aside one day and said " Alfred, you are a good boy and will do well in life. However, you need to take a typing class in high school...." so a year later, as a freshman I was the only boy in a class of 150 girls ( 1971) in a typing class fast forward to college, I was working as student lab technician, when the Prof I was working for found out I could type. So I was immediately assigned to type and retype IBM punch cards for a Fortran Program he was working on. I had to submit the cards for input into the University main frame between midnight and 4 am so he could get main frame time for free. Fast forward to my first job - as a newly minted engineer, I was the youngest person assigned to a project to computerize the manufacturing systems at my factory - My Boss had heard that I had " computer experience" His computer literacy was so low that he had his secretary print out his emails, so he could respond in handwriting and have her reply for him , so typing in punch cards was magic to him at this point, I decided I had better get into this computer thing and bought my first computer, an Atari 800 followed by a used IBM PC 5150 a few years later.

    Not sure my experience with disk swaps is directly comparable but ... My GEN8 servers have all 4 disk bays occupied. Each disk is configured as RAID0. One time the disk in bay 3 on one of the servers, containing only data, failed completely. With the server powered down I removed the caddy from bay 3, replaced the disk with a new one, reinserted the caddy and powered up. During the posting sequence, i.e. before OS load, a prompt like the following appeared: "NEW DISK IN BAY 3 DETECTED: PROCEED?" In other words one is offered the choice to accept the disk asis, which might be what you want. I believe the behaviour of a disk as RAID0 means the B120i controller won't touch it so things will carry on as normal. In my case I simply saw a new raw disk which I could then format in Windows and reload the data from backup. It sounds to me like you have a CD drive and a spare disk bay and can create a clone of the OS disk by booting to the Acronis CD. After you have created the clone you could power off, remove the old OS HDD and move the cloned OS on the SSD to the slot formerly occupied by the HDD (I suspect the OS has to be in the same bay). My guess is that when you reboot you will be prompted first with: NEW DISK IN SLOT 1 PROCEED? … to which you can answer 'yes' and cloned Windows should load. You will also get a red alert saying that a disk is missing - the bay formerly holding the SSD is now empty 'cos you moved it! You can clear this by telling SSA to delete that array, now or at another reboot. Another interesting question is of course what will happen to the activation status of 2012. If 2012 activation doesn't like being on a new disk then you will have to go through the 'I really do have a license for this' loops that MSFT has for recovering keys. I wouldn't start this process without knowing how to rebuild the existing configuration, in case something goes wrong (e.g. one time I tried to modify a GEN8 server which only had 2GB RAM. There is a fault in SSA which loses the RAID configuration for this amount of memory, so I had to recreate all disks from backup).

    QoS or Quality of Service as @Trig0r stated is basically network traffic prioritization at its base. What it is designed to do, with more and more converged traffic these days is to lower the latency and give top billing to applications that require this VoIP is a widely used example, low latency and no (or minimal rather) dropped packets are highly important here. Prioritization can be done in many ways, traditionally as above it was done for traffic classes, but you can, in theory, do it for the source, destination or a myriad of conditions, commonly these days gaming centric products offer game bandiwdth prioritization on the motherboards, and routers.

    More ideas after further research and some new product announcements. Just when I became happy with the i5-8400 … I noticed the ‘T’ series processors e.g. i5-8600T. With a lower power consumption of 35W when idling and turbo to 3.7GHz when motoring they seem well suited to a home data server role. However I can’t find anywhere that sells them! An i9 setup looks great … but the power consumption and cost is huge. I really liked this motherboard too: https://www.servethehome.com/supermicro-x11sph-nctf-atx-storage-motherboard-review/ but the value of the XEON CPU’s is terrible. 8 disks/SATA ports/bays seemed to be pretty much the general limit without expanding into external cabinets … … until I started reading recent announcements by ICY DOCK. That company is developing a range of compact disk bays to fit in the obsolete 5.25 bays still contained in tower cases. For example it is possible to fit 4 by 15mm disks into a 1 by 5.25 bay using: https://www.icydock.com/goods.php?id=254 The idea here is to buy an inexpensive JBOD HBA for an additional 8 SATA ports opening up the possibility of a 16 disk Storage Space – an 8 column mirror. 8 of the bays would be 3.5” disks fed from the motherboard and another 8 fed by the HBA. Now 15mm disks means a limit of 4TB per disk and a little more expense of course … … but theoretically those 8 columns should be getting somewhere near filling a 10GBE network connection and a 4TB disk failure shared out between 7 columns rebuilding in parallel should be over pretty quick. I should add that I’ve never got anywhere near testing any of this! The ICYDOCK solution is splendidly general, opening up the choice of case. My current preference is the FRACTAL DESIGN R5 for its quietness, 8 x 3.5” bays and 2 x 5.25” bays. http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define-series/define-r5-black Indeed one can even contemplate the FRACTAL DESIGN XL R2 with 4x 5.25” bays for a 24 disk system. http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define-series/define-xl-r2-black-pearl ICY DOCK are also heading (but not there yet) in the right direction by employing mini-SAS connectors. Clearly we would prefer to combine SATA cabling in bundles of 4 with a 16 disk system!

    Here is the final video in this project. Yes, ONE year later! The pool house was completed in July 2018. This video is a compilation time lapse that has the pool start to finish. There is also a pool house video at the end that shows you the whole project completed and looking nice.

    As far as I can tell Windows Server 2012 is based on Windows 8. So you should look for a Windows 8 64 bit driver. You could also try a Windows 8.1 64 bit driver. You did not say what drivers you had already tried.

    The card would not require modification, I was referring to your comment on modifying the odd bay. The N36l-N40l-N54l can fit two 3.5 drives in the ODD bay. External solutions are available from Sans Digital and Silverstone they come with a SFF-8088 connection. They are around $200.
