Anyone already exprience with OMV and the new HP Microserver Gen10?
4x HP Microserver gen8, 3x with OMV. Puffer: 4x3TB RAID5; Nemo:4x3TB RAID5; Shark: 4x2TB RAID5
Tried to install OMV on a gen10 performance model.
Cannot view or configure RAID volumes.
Perhaps the Marvell 88SE9230 controller is not supported by default ?

- I looked at the uefi\bios settings doesn't seem to be present a function to power on on power failure, nor a wake on alarm setting..I tried anyway to plug off the cord from the server and "make" a power failure and then plug back in, it seems it auto start up again, so I guess this function is autoimplemented even if there is no setting in the bios am I right?
Chipset -> Southbridge -> Restore on Power loss
- Also what about ACHI support setting in the bios for the ssd instead of RAID (that I don't use anyway) in the bios? I don't see it either

Funny thing is with basic debian jessie with stock kernel (no backports) it works well, out of the box, the problem of the sp5100_tco (that I blacklisted to solve) and the hanging at boot screen happens only if I use the backport from jessie or the stock kernel on stretch, so maybe is a bug they fixed with the new kernels, so I'm going to try your way stretch+backport kernel.
Yes, I only tested the VGA port though since I did not have anything to connect to DP.From your post I didn't understood one thing though, if you go stretch+backport kernel+non-free-firmware+omv4 on top of it will get you the fix of complete boot with vga attached to the server?
HPE only offers firmware within the warranty period, so they need to check if you are still good. I think you need to link your device with your account ("link warranties", "Garantien verknüpfen" within the menu) and enter product and serial number. But this does not accept my numbers currently, I'll need to contact them directly to see why.Lastly about the settings I didn't know how I missed them, now I found them thanks,...about the registration to download bios firmware is beyond stupid o.O..I created the account registered my server all is good, but still can't download the firmware it asks also to connect your account with some non more specific certificate or contract (!?!?!?!?) but the page keeps refreshing itself no download...this is F*****G annoying an really stupid, so much that I would probably need to contact the support just for this stupid thing that's really....wasting time.
Anyway one last thing qwertz did you try to issue the command dmesg --level=err ?
I didn't notice any error in my omv logs, but when I issued that command I found all of this caos with it:
fsck -f /dev/sda1.

Yesterday I tried to install stretch just with utilities and ssh server (to access through ssh after installation and download the backport kernel)
I used the debian backports 4.12 at first and it seemed to work. Just make sure you install the non-free firmware, packageAbout the kernel, to be honest, I'm not really comfortable to install Ubuntu's kernel in it, especially because I want to install omv on it and I want as less problem I could have for future upgrades (that's useful anyway for reference so thanks to have mentioned it)..but you said it will work with debian stretch backport kernel too 4.12 am I right or did I misunderstood you?!
firmware-amd-graphicsor even better
firmware-linux. This is needed regardless of the kernel version.
I want to use the IOMMU at least in passthrough configuration, because as I understand it it is needed for full graphics / hsa support. Even if I do not have a monitor connected graphics support (UVD, VCE) / opencl acceleration would be nice for things like video transcoding. But I can wait a few kernel versions for it to work, the CPU should be fast enough for anything except .h265 or 4k/8k content.If that the case I'm all set, I don't really need IOMMU anyway because I'm no planning any vm on it, so I don't really care if it doesn't work for my needs.
I really wanted to buy the 4 core Microserver, but it's just way to expensive.What about performance how did you find yourself with it? and what are your use for this microserver (I have the same model as yours by the way)

I used the minimal/network iso and the graphical expert install, since I wanted only the minimal system. Afterwards just added the OMV repository to sources.list and installed the packages according to the wiki.

it remains just the annoying kfd iommu info, why does it try to load it if it's disabled on the bios is beyond me, I will try to look at the fix you mentioned of iommu
but at least I think it's just cosmetic, so we are good!
It is a good looking machine for the price point and consumption, I've another around, I'm considering to use it in a small office with 5\6 users to use samba\share where they work coupled with 2 data disks+ 2disk with rsnapshot to have backup of the data disks (I'm not really a raid guy, I prefere snasphots so you can go back in time) plus teamviewer host to let them turn on their pc and work from home if needed.
I hope the amd apu can handle it, it shouldn't be too much difficult for it, indeed 5 users are not too much, so I hope will handle everything.
Interesting choice with your upgrades plan, especially about the ram upgrade are you planning use zfs or just to have as much power as you could?
They sell NAS with a quarter of the RAM and half the CPU power for double the user count, so I'm not worried
Just remember to a) backup on external drives too in case something goes horribly wrong and b) use the CIFS/SMB trashcan option, otherwise you'll go crazy restoring the users "oopsies" from backups/snapshots. In my experience it pays if the user is able to help him or herself, even if there's an IT-ish guy around.
and already set backup plugin with 2 external usb 3.0 hard drive formatted in ntfs that point to the rsnapshot hard disk so they will aslo get a portable backup with incrementals directly on ntfs partition that can plug and play on their windows machine and recover also something that they f*cked up in the trashcan aswell :D.
If it wasn't for the "plug and play Windows" requirement I'd advise against NTFS drives for backup. NTFS write support via fuse is heavily CPU dependent. So I suspect the backups will be quite slow, USB3 or not.I'd recommend FAT32, but that limits the file (and disk) size too much.and already set backup plugin with 2 external usb 3.0 hard drive formatted in ntfs that point to the rsnapshot hard disk so they will aslo get a portable backup with incrementals directly on ntfs partition that can plug and play on their windows machine and recover also something that they f*cked up in the trashcan aswell :D.
If you do not expect files above 4GiB, you may format partitions above 32GB with FAT32 under Linux, windows reads those fine too - it just does not create them. YMMV.
