    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    The OS booting and BIOS update are unrelated things. Just flash the latest BIOS using iLO and then start to think about OS boot.

    Basically DNS utilitizes round-robin/forwarding lists unless told otherwise. What I do for clients that have to have DNS filtering is the following · Server Local DNS: o 127.0.0.1 (To allow for local lookups) o Secondary DC, or Upstream filtered DNS if no secondary DC, there should be a secondary DC, always, if in doubt see previous statement · Server DNS Server o Filtered Upstream in Forwarder, this set to primary position. Round robin disabled o ISP/Cloudfare/Google Public DNS as next in list. Then fallback to Root DNS servers o Conditional Forwarders for known domains. If I have specific domains that need to be looked up on specific servers, I create a conditional forwarder for that domain · DHCP o DNS set to Server IP o DNS set to Secondary Server IP, or upstream filtered DNS

    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.

    I had the same problem today after sticking in a 1260L, cured by removing the non HPE ram and then rebooting. After it had rebooted properly, shut down added the ram back and its working fine.

    How long is a piece of string? at work I have deployed VEEAM infrastructure (just like 90% of people) that backs up not via SMB but directly. It has multiple snapshots on some replica's of highly important servers, and multiple backups 21 daily Weekly active full's backups Long Term Storage via iSCSI( so it is vulnerable to attack there but they actually have to get access to the server) Daily's for 1 week 5 weekly's 4 Monthly's 5 Quarterly's 8 Yearly's Offsite 15 Days Home I have a similar system Daily PC backups VEEAM Agent for Windows Time Machine for Mac Data Sync'd to NAS Websites Downloaded via scripts to Local Storage NAS Syncs to 2x Offsite 2 Disk NAS' (Mirrored Drives) at two different sites, each store's 8TB OneDrive (each user's one drive is Mirrored to the NAS) Backblaze B2 (Selected this one as I can order a disk with all the data on it unlike many of the other providers) USB HDD This has a TP-Link Kasa plug that turns off and on as required, the Synology ejects the disk once it completes the backup and the plug turns off at a pre-determined time, it turns on about 30 minutes before the backup is due to start so the disk is physically off most of the time. I would like to have it so the Synology sends a command to the switch (lets say 5 minutes) before the backup job starts (could use a wait command) that turns it on, and then another that runs after the job is complete to turn it off but I have not worked this one out yet and Synology have been no help, they just do not seem to be able to grasp the concept of what I want to happen or that I want to run pre-processing and post-process jobs Servers are backed up via VEEAM Now I have a better link I may send these off to the offsite backups above

    You can fit two 15mm 2.5" drives side by side on the bracket. You can't stack a 7mm and a 15mm as it would be too thick. You could mount one 15mm and mount two 7mm (stacked) next to it. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have other questions.

    yes I understood the command. About the drives, now that I checked and reconnected the cable, I see the 4 drives. I found the old version on the broadcom website, now time to flash !! It worked, I flashed 7.39.00.00 version through freedos on the microserver. Thanks for yout help!

    The first WD 4TB Red I installed in my WHS2011 DrivePool on January 30, 2014 is going to be retired. DrivePool was sending me Smart Warnings via email regarding excessive head parkings. I yanked it out and replaced with a WD 6TB Red. Got 5+ years out of the WD 4TB Red so that's not bad! My very first WD 3TB RED is still going strong in my DrivePool -- it's got to be pushing 6+ years now. Currently, my DrivePool is made of 6 drives, all Reds: 1 3TB, 4 4TB, and now the single 6TB.

    Used Aruba S2500 switches give you a lot of feature and function for the money. The POE versions, S2500-24P and S2500-48P, support 802.11af and 802.11at. Both models include four 10GbE SFP+ ports. There are several threads on using them in the home. The 48P sells on eBay for around $100. The 24P was around $75 but they seem to be around $100 as well. Not as cheap as the ProCurve, but 48 ports could be an easy way to consolidate switches if you are running multiple switches.

    Server 2016 can use containers however I do believe that the Linux support is not quite ready yet. As for the docker containers I tend to use the LinuxServer.io versions of the containers. This is the container I would be using myself https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/letsencrypt

    I think you will like this one. I'm talking to QNAP, Wyze, and Ring on the show floor of CES 2019. The audio has been cleaned up so it doesn't sound terrible like most show floor interviews do. Let me know if you have any questions.

    This is an interesting topic and one that is near and dear to my heart, I thrive for the best performing network I can have. "Mesh" has its place. Why are you only looking at Netgear? Nothing wrong with them and there Orbi product is top notch and was the one to beat according to reviews last I check. Have a look at Synology RT2600ac router found here, They also have MR2200ac found here. The MR220ac can be teamed up with the RT2600ac to create a "Mesh" network or 'stand a lone' It has a lot to offer and work great and has great reviews. I am a Synology fan boy and for good reason. 1) They have one of the nicest user interfaces. 2) they have a package center to enhance the functionality found here 3) they are always updating the OS and pushing security updates. 4) It just works. 5) Safe Access. 6) Reports 7) You can setup user profiles, By device or by user. 8 The list is just some of what you can do, There is plenty more. If you have any questions let me know.

    The connection on a SAS drive is different than SATA. The connectors in the drive bays of a MS Gen8 are capable of accepting either SATA or SAS drives. The B120i controller is SATA. If you want to use SAS drives in a MS Gen8 you need to add a SAS RAID card or HBA. For RAID cards I would look at HPE P222 or P420.

    thanks for sharing that. your contributions here are vast and definitely appreciated by myself and I am sure others as well. many of us really want to know how things work and what is possible with the stuff we have. given I had actually experienced a double-bit memory error on one of my servers, I am sure I have been saved from the impact of a single-bit error or two as well. I for one really prefer to use the ECC memory where I have functionality I consider important. but that is my personal choice. thanks!!!!!

    To be eligible to download BIOS, your server needs to be in warranty or it needs to be on a service contract. SPP includes BIOS so it is in the same category. With the exception of the BIOS you can download everything that would come in the SPP. I believe there was a version of the BIOS for the MS Gen8 that could be downloaded without warranty/service as it dealt with Spectre and meltdown.

    Happy New Year to you too Dave ... … you lucky bastard! I'm interested in computing and gambling so if I wasn't so lazy I'd be joining you in LV!! Trouble is it would be my last trip anywhere and I'd have to buy the return flight ticket in advance 😉 If this is the 'what do you want me to look at' post: - networking vendors: WE WANT AN AFFORDABLE 10G SWITCH to go with our Aquantia 5G and 10G NIC's, can't you even manage say 4/5 ports? That's not going to ruin your datacentre/cloud business anytime soon. - NAS vendors: if a 4-bay unit with 10G costs $400, can we have an 8 bay unit for $500 (it's largely more metal) and a 12 bay unit for $600 … or else we build a real computer with a fast CPU and an Aquantia 5G NIC for ourselves - motherboard vendors: more offerings with 5G, 10G and Thunderbolt already - case vendors: what is taking you so long to provide an affordable case with 12 or 16 by 3.5" disk bays (we don't need 2.5" 'cos those drives are expensive and we've put our OS on an M.2 NVME drive .. or a few such with VROC) - DELL/HP: if you actually sold the workstation upgrade kits advertised as 'SKU for installation by the customer/user' rather than locking them away you would sell more workstations and parts and make more money - HP/DELL/MICROSOFT: why don't you offer consumer PC configurations with the OS on a small SSD and 2/4 disks with REfS as a premium device (let engineering not marketing decide the price)? Have a nice show.

    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.

    Hey RESET Forums, One of the updates I ran on the forums recently changed some guest permissions so I have been finding guest posts here and there. You will know when you see them, they are total spam, and usually the username says Guest - Melissa or something like that. Alert me with the report post button if you see something like this and I'll squash it. I've since went through all the permissions and removed guest posting. Thanks! Dave

    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/

    I picked up an Xeon E3-1240 V2 ontop of my Current Xeon E3-1265L V2 So decided to do a direct comparison from a performance and power use perspective The Xeon E3-1265L V2 was pulled from the primary Gen8 and Moved to the secondary Gen8 The Xeon E3-1240 V2 was fitted in the primary Gen8 Changes In Device Manager Intel Voltage interface or something was present on 1265L V2 Not Present with 1240 V2 (Cant remember its exact name and i have removed it now) Intel® 82801 PCI Bridge - 244E Present with 1240 V2 Not Present with 1265L V2 Windows 10 Pro Winsat Scores Xeon E3-1265L V2 CPUScore : 7.9 D3DScore : 9.9 DiskScore : 8.15 GraphicsScore : 4.7 MemoryScore : 7.9 WinSPRLevel : 4.7 Xeon E3-1240 V2 CPUScore : 8.2 D3DScore : 9.9 DiskScore : 8.15 GraphicsScore : 4.9 MemoryScore : 8.2 WinSPRLevel : 4.9 Xeon E3-1265L V2 CPU Speed 1 Thread 3500mhz 2 Threads 3400mhz 3 Threads 3200mhz 8 Threads 3100mhz Lowest Observed Idle VID @ 1600mhz 0.8306v Lowest Observed Idle Wattage @ 1600mhz 4.29w Highest Observed Load Wattage @ 3600mhz 38.8w (Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Lowest Idle Temp 25°C Rear Fan 11% Current Temp 69°C Highest Temp 70°C (5 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 15% Current Temp 74°C Highest Temp 74°C (10 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 19% Current Temp 73°C Highest Temp 75°C (15 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 19% Current Temp 75°C Highest Temp 75°C (20 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 19% Current Temp 74°C Highest Temp 76°C (25 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 20% Xeon E3-1240 V2 CPU Speed 1 Thread 3800mhz 2 Threads 3800mhz 3 Threads 3700mhz 8 Threads 3600mhz Lowest Observed Idle VID @ 1600mhz 0.9056v Lowest Observed Idle Wattage @ 1600mhz 4.84w Highest Observed Load Wattage @ 3600mhz 54.09w (Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Lowest Idle Temp 24°C Rear Fan 12% Current Temp 90°C Highest Temp 90°C (5 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 16% Current Temp 91°C Highest Temp 94°C (10 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 48% Current Temp 85°C Highest Temp 94°C (15 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 54% Current Temp 84°C Highest Temp 94°C (20 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 50% Current Temp 85°C Highest Temp 94°C (25 Mins Prime 95 8 thread Inplace Large FFT's) Rear Fan 49% Fan Mounting I Mounted the Blower (Delta BFB0512LD) with 3M VHB This time around instead of string it has 1 x dynamode 3 pin fan reduction cable installed dropping the fan from 3850rpm to 2850rpm http://s5.postimg.org/xuxjxahli/image.jpg http://s5.postimg.org/nv2nhe6c6/image.jpg http://s5.postimg.org/4nk3yjdee/image.jpg http://s5.postimg.org/egwpxlq52/image.jpg Prime 95 Details Xeon E3-1265L V2 IDLE http://s5.postimg.org/mp38wc7fb/1265_LV2_Idle_11.jpg Xeon E3-1240 V2 IDLE http://s5.postimg.org/5n5tgi36f/1240_V2_Idle_12.jpg 5 Mins Prime95 http://s5.postimg.org/pj1sw1k7q/5min.jpg 10 mins Prime95 http://s5.postimg.org/lp8cmw2vq/10mins.jpg 15 Mins Prime 95 http://s5.postimg.org/4ibrb4gpi/15min.jpg 20 Mins Prime 95 http://s5.postimg.org/umt2k8vbq/20mins.jpg 25 Mins Prime 95 http://s5.postimg.org/x6opecivq/25mins.jpg

    I get that feeling with almost everything HP does.

    That normally indicates that the system is right on the edge of compatibility. In this case, the RAM detection routine is sometimes getting the proper responses from the RAM sticks in the alloted time slot, and sometimes it's not. You may be able to get the system to consistently detect the RAM by changing the RAM timings and/or voltages in the BIOS. I used to do this when I was an overclocker. I would increase the clock rate of my system and it would become unstable, sometimes detecting the RAM correctly, sometimes not. I would set the system back to defaults, then boost the voltage to the RAM and/or change the RAM timings, then increase the clock rate again and try another boot. It was a processof trial and error.
