    As I do not plan to build any more of the SDM Rev4 brackets, I have decided to share the schematic. https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ao9ObX1BCpuXsstkeE7Jc5cyRmYTFQ?e=8ouDcP Edit- This is a Visio file. If you download it and open it Visio you will see the scale of the drawing.

    Thanks for guidance on this! Just a note on the solution I settled with in the end for anyone else who might come across this thread looking to do the same thing - Tried a couple different cheaper eSATA cards with no success having the drives in ICYCube detected in CentOS. Looked into driver issues and again with no luck. The USB connection did work fine, but I wasn't overly happy with that as a solution. I instead got this HBA (10Gtek Host Bus Adapter - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M9GRAUM) with Mini SAS connection, and swapped the ICYCube for an alternative external enclosure with compatible Mini SAS connection (SilverStone SST-TS431S-V2 - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0771S45X3). On setup this worked perfectly, with the drives properly detected. I'm actually also a little happier with the SilverStone unit in general so far, it feels of higher build quality and fan also seems a little quieter. I also decided to move away from using the B120i RAID controller, and hardware raid in general, and am now using ZFS / RAIDZ. Thanks again for help as I was working through this!

    In theory It should work with a SATA m.2 disk yes as it uses a SATA controller what I assume @schoondoggy was referring to is a HBA adapter that allows for actual SATA disks to be added

    I had the same problem. The solution that worked for me was to change the Power Regular Settings to "OS Control Mode" in ILO. Hope this helps.

    For the last 10 years or so, Ive been using Onenote to help manage these things. Ill download the manual, info etc. Scan receipts into the folder I have a separate page for each appliance Since its on onedrive, its available where ever i go With regards to extended warranties, i think of them as very limited insurance policies against the loss of the object. In the great majority of cases, its not a good deal. They offer it to you to make money Beware of confirmation bias. The handful of times it comes in handy are far more memorable than the majority of times it was a waste of money

    Hey Dave, A few things that might help and others: Haven't used the UDM yet (I'm waiting for the UDM Pro which is still in final beta), but... My understanding is that you can restore a CloudKey controller backup to the UDM built-in CloudKey. Personally, in your configuration, I wouldn't physically reconfigure and move coax feeds and equipment. I would install the UDM in the basement replacing existing gear with just a simple cable swap. Sure, you're wasting the built-in AP, but everything else is much more straightforward. Theoretically, you should be able to restore your cloudkey backup, and have almost the same network up and running in just a few minutes. Then you can start deconstructing or reconfiguring more at your leisure rather than necessity of getting the network up and running for the entire household with no downtime 🙂 In your review of your existing setup, IMHO, the primary benefit of Unifi, even more than the wide choice of physical AP units and mounting options, is the extensive configurability and monitoring/status options. You kinda touched at this towards the end of the podcast, but the ability to limit the radio power, turn off the auto settings, and assign the Wi-Fi channels (especially the crowded 2.4 GHz frequency) to non-overlapped channel numbers is a big win for anyone trying to fix dead spots or avoid buying extra AP's as a "brute force" solution to solving coverage. (Not that there is anything wrong with that; sometimes spending $100 on an extra AP instead of spending hundreds of dollars of time and effort to tweak, is the right choice.) It wasn't clear that you are full exploiting the Unifi flexibility to fix your Ring camera/doorbell problems. First thing I usually do with a Unifi setup is to create a 2.4 GHz only SSID and enable it only on the AP radio that is physically the right unit for the Doorbells (or any IoT device that only supports 2.4GHz) to connect. Overriding the autoconnect/automatic behavior in Ring and other devices and forcing the connection to a specific AP solves almost all the Wi-Fi problems with these and similar devices that have somewhat dumb Wi-Fi firmware or less than ideal reliability. It's worth the trouble to re-program the SSID inside the Ring or other device and the results are much better than just having multiple AP's hoping they are in range. I'm really curious whether the UDM will be successful in bringing Unifi to the general consumer market, but I'm skeptical it will really be able to displace Eero, Google, Orbi, and other true consumer gear. One irony is that right now the early adopters of the UDM are all sophisticated Unifi users and that thing doesn't fit and looks awful in their otherwise beautiful rack porn photos they have been posting 🙂 Granted the UDM is a lot cheaper than buying the equivalent individual parts, but there are advantages to being modular too. Easier service, not losing everything if a non-critical module goes down, etc. There will always be a lively discussion between modular or integrated that goes all the way back to mainframes with terminals versus minicomputers and later PC's, so not trying to re-ignite that long standing debate, but merely point out that saving money isn't always the most significant reason to choose one over another. In the case of Unifi, both fans and users are primarily looking for new functionality. Personally, I would prefer to see some new capabilities made available, regardless of whether it is all-in-one or requires a new box. I can work around price and modularity issues, but I can't work around the lack of a critical feature. So, to bring this home, the only feature that UDM provides that doesn't exist in the current gear is the new USG router/firewall. Specifically, the UDM is rated to handle 1 Gbps speeds with full hardware speed packet analysis and intrusion processing. The current USG is only able to handles 100mbps and is severely taxed in performance at that speed. This is significant because consumer fiber and high speed home Internet connections have zoomed from 3 mbps to over 1 Gbps in many urban and metropolitan areas. Since you mentioned you don't have a USG in your current setup, I think you aren't in a good position to really understand the difference provided by the UDM versus the existing Unifi gear. I know some Unifi users prefer to use a separate router or the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter products because of these limitations and thus don't have the integrated management provided by using the USG. On a positive note, the UDM finally removes the insecure PPTP VPN protocol, but has not yet added support for OpenVPN for incoming VPN (to connect back to your home when you are away, or to use your home network as your own private VPN Internet gateway instead of a paid service), and that is a bit disappointing.

    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/

    Windows download link https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_71b9ad7e388d434fb62f7542e3 Entitlement is *not* required, despite what the page says. To update without booting from iso, or from OS, you can extract the CPQJ0613.684 file from the exe with 7-zip and upload it to the ILO firmware update page instead. A reboot is required to activate or display as the new version

    Just in case anyone has this problem, the solution was to install the latest Broadcom drivers - I used this https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/drivers/driversdetails?driverid=cn7mv&oscode=ws19l&productcode=poweredge-r430 and I am now down to around 2-3% cpu at idle. No idea why the Broadcom NX1 driver (cp031155) from the hpe site had such high cpu. -Jim

    I have an X3421 Gen10 Microserver w/ stock 8GB RAM running Windows Server 2019 Eval. I did the standard install, then added HyperV and container support. This isn't part of a domain - nothing is set up beyond the initial install and normal Windows updates. The boot disk is an MX500 SSD attached to SATA5 with 2 4TB 3.5" drives in the cage. I was seeing ~20% CPU utilization for the SYSTEM process and ~22% for SYSTEM INTERRUPTS. I tracked that down to the vEthernet device. When I uninstalled HyperV and removed the vEthernet device it dropped down to ~12.5% CPU for SYSTEM and ~2.5% CPU for SYSTEM INTERRUPTS. Note that this is looking at the task manager performance tab. If I right click on SYSTEM and select Go To Details it shows SYSTEM taking about 6% CPU and SYSTEM INTERRUPTS taking about 2%. I don't know what causes this discrepancy. Running LatencyMon (for about a 30 second run) shows Highest measused time: 343 Highest reported ISR time: 33.8 (storport.sys) Highest reported DPC time: 212.3 (ndis.sys) Total hard page fault: 26 I'm not sure how to track down the source of the SYSTEM process CPU usage. I don't see anything unusual in the event logs. Truthfully I'm more concerned about the SYSTEM CPU usage, but both seem high to me for a server that is basically just sitting there. Is there something strange going on or is this just the cost of running Server 2019 on a relatively low performance CPU? This server is replacing Home Server 2011 on a MediaSmart EX495 and idle CPU on that was about 3-5%. I have installed bios ZA10A360, chipset driver WS2012R2_W8_1, AMD Chipset Graphic Driver 17.1.1, and the Broadcom NX1 driver (cp031155) - all from the HP site. Not sure what else to try. Is this normal for Server 2019 with no load? Thanks in advance for any advice, -Jim

    The B120i showed an error because after reboot it was missing drives as you moved the drives to a different controller. It should not show that error after future reboots. Drive clicking is generally not a good sign. It could be that DrivePool is checking drives. You should check in their tools to see that everything is OK. The red light on the front of the server should be listed in the error log in iLo. Log into iLo to see if an error is listed there. This is the B120i user guide: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=emr_na-c03326739

    One of the offspring has an XBox, the other a Surface 3, my rig is safe for now... Ended up with the m.2 drive, just about to clone the SSD to the m.2 now, should be about 3Gbps faster once its done, wonder if it'll actually be like going from your old spinner to an SSD again or if it'll be unnoticeable.. I know I should really do a reinstall but i CBA, its Saturday evening..

    Introductory pricing is always high. The design of this server and other interaction I have had recently with HPE, lead me to believe that home media server and home lab server are not the target customers for this server.

    Having Just got a gen 8 cheap off the internet, I thought I would install windows 10. The first part was simple, download the Mediacreation tool and make the usb installer. The second part, getting it to install on the gen 8, was a bit trickier... and the solution surprised me! Some of the parts have been covered here already, so I wont duplicate them. Getting into the bios to enable the smart array Setting up drives on the B120i Once that was done I plugged the usb drive into the internal usb socket and booted from it. But when I got to the select drive to install it on... no drive recognised! OK, I need a driver for the B120i, picked up the least one (cp033111.exe) from the HP website, extracted it and put it in a folder on the win 10 install usb drive. Rebooted and when I got to the same part of the install routine I loaded the drivers and hey presto the drive appeared, great, but when I tried to create a partition I got an error. We could not create partition... What? WHY? I had a browse around and tried cleaning the drive with diskpart the drive, but got the same error. Then I tried moving the usb installer drive from the internal socket to an external usb2 socket on the front. Then when I got to the same part of the install routine.... it worked! Then, once the install routine was complete there was the usual install of drivers. Now windows 10 is working like a dream! Hope that helps anyone puzzling over installing windows 10 on the gen 8.

    You do not need to pull the drives out, just do not connect the data cable. I would leave the drives in their bays so they stay in the correct order.

    It seems to be going fine, no issues. VPN works as expected. The VAR that installed it takes care of the technical aspects. The customer complains about the support cost, but thy do not have their own IT, so they need the help. Fortinet does very well with SMB and education. I am not sure how cost effective their WAP's are, but they seem to be a nice end to end solution.

    This is a common problem - not just with OTA - even cable companies like Comcast and direct TV are broadcasting local channels in 720p in my area only 1 channel out of the 4 major networks broadcasts in 1080 - the rest are in 720 The sub channels are a "vast wasteland" of mostly junk programming. They are basically infomercial stations that costs almost nothing to carry by the host station. even if your particular cable vendor broadcasts in 1080 - the feed from the local station may be in 720 and just upconverted. still, my monthly expenses dropped by $60 a month by ditching cable

    It should. RAID migration from the B120i to P222 is supported. Make sure the firmware on the P222 is up to date, before moving the drives over.

    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.

    Then you likely have a ML110 Gen9. Can you confirm? https://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c04605708-5.pdf For the four drives you currently have are they in swappable bays or mounted in the case? Swappable drive bay options are documented starting on page 13 in the user guide listed above. For the cable you asked about, ebay tends to be the best place to find those. This is a good guide as well. Drive bay topics start on page 28: https://content.etilize.com/User-Manual/1033728312.pdf

    Sounds to me like you should leave the machine just as it is. A NAS was originally a special purpose PC dedicated to storage ... ... but to justify their high prices NAS vendors added on all sorts of bits and pieces turning it back to a PC! Your machine is already effectively a NAS. A point I keep making on this forum is that streaming is a low bandwidth operation, well within the capability of the puniest wireless setup. CD quality audio needs only 1Mbs, 4K video maybe 15Mbs. That's why internet streaming is now possible but it has long since been so on a home network ... which might actually be wired 1Gbs! Having cheap dedicated storage server(s) and playing back via cheap streamer(s) [audio, video] is a cost-effective architecture. I drew a block diagram for a more elaborate project which contains this configuration in the nearby Converged 10G Home Storage Network thread (won't let me paste a link here for some reason) Critique My Build.

Reboot, cold boot, kernel updates... Everything works! Not sure if interesting, but I formatted my root partition as ext4 which seems to be /dev/sde2:

    Generally, you won't. For the most part, you need a server power supply to support this natively. And these get expensive, fast. The connector type (the 8 pin connector on the motherboard) is called an "EPS" connector, in case it helps in your searches. You can find Molex to EPS adapters, though. But remember to find and buy good quality parts here. A decent example is: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OSR3V84/

    Recently I added a P420 to my GEN8. But this also increased the case fan speed, even when it was idle. The P420 looks like it has been designed to add a fan on top of the heatsink. With a cheap fan on the heatsink I was able to reduce the temperature to 60°C while under load. For anyone interested, the .stl can be found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1284618 And some pics can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/MPAEL PS: Thanks to everyone providing your knowledge in this forum, you saved me a lot of time figuring out some stuff with my GEN8!
