    • My work around on a gen 8 HP Microserver with OMV 4 is to

      Disabling "Processor Power and Utilization Monitoring"

      1. Boot machine to RBSU (F9).
      2. Press CTRL+A.
      3. Select "Service Options."
      4. Select "Processor Power and Utilization Monitoring."
      5. Select "Disable."
      6. Press F10 to save and exit.
      7. Reboot.

      Install OMV 3 then upgrade to 4 with omv-release-upgrade
    • Hi,

      Just received my Gen8.
      I planned to install OMV on SSD, and use ODD sata, but after some research this morning, it seems impossible to properly boot from port5.
      My data disks will not be in a RAID (I'm using snapraid), and forcing SSD boot with raid 0 trick is not reliable for me, if a reboot / cold boot is not possible.

      So what are the possible solutions ?
      • install omv on USB (+SSD for data)?
      • install omv on sd card (+SSD for data)?
      • use USB only for boot partition, and keep other installation partitions on SSD ?
      Thanks

      I would definitely advice third option:
      "use USB only for boot partition, and keep other installation partitions on SSD(on ODD/5th port)

      Hi,
      Connect only your SSD on your Gen8, then, activate in Bios, AHCI (not raid).
      Install OMV on the SSD. Restart.
      After that, OMV will boot on your SSD, without volume raid. Then, with OMV you will be able to create your volume.
      U are not saying where to put ssd :(1) 5th port or (2)front hdd bay?

      1. this option shall work BUT ONLY PARTLY!!!
      Wherever it is needed a reset(bootup)(becouse of reason of whatsoever) of Gen8,
      he NEEDS to get HDD`s OUT of front bay`s before of bootup!!!
      Otherways it will NOT bootup.

      Therefor is boot(grub) on usb stick is needed!!!

      2.That is possible and easy way. Bad side of it is,that he( Mika91) cannot use ssd for more use(saveing) of data on ssd.
      AND the most important, he is LoosinG one bay a front/ in start.
    • On my Gen8, i made 2 different setups from scratch.

      1st one, with 4 x 4 TB HDD connected on 1.2.3.4 th port, and 1 SSD (5th port, instead of CD/DVD drive). => OMV2, then OMV3 upgrade. Works fine.

      2nd setup, with HP smartarray p410 card, and 4 HDD connected on it with miniSAS/SATA cables. The Same SSD but this time, connected on 1st SATA port of Motherboard. Works fine too.
    • Hello me again...

      Can someone tell me or explain to me some unortodox mystery that hunts from this morning.

      I have HP proliant Gen8 microserver.
      One or two years ago i installed Omv on HP with ODD/5th sta port and Grub on intern usb port.
      Because of some amateur handeling i needed to reinstall. That went without a problem two day`s ago.
      Till then i was preoccupied with copying grub on usb.
      This morning i discovered that Omv on ODD and 3 hdd`s(1,2,4port) is BOOTING UP without problem ?!?!
      Same OMV3...etc.

      One of the few "wtf" moments in my life!

      Can someone explain please (just do not say "that`s a job of Gremlins) ???
    • This seems to be rather a long thread!! Having got hold of a Gen7 N54L I starting searching for some sort of sensor monitoring, I came across this which lead onto this and from the first link led me to this

      Has anyone installed these? I have installed lm-sensors but that just displays

      Source Code

      1. k10temp-pci-00c3
      2. Adapter: PCI adapter
      3. temp1: +30.1°C (high = +70.0°C)
      4. (crit = +100.0°C, hyst = +95.0°C)
      Further information is here once installed those drivers will display more information.

    • i have a proliant dl160 gen 6 that i am trying to use omv with and have the OS on a 32gb flashdrive. and there are no drives set up in the raid config at boot and when i go to the web config after the server boots up, i have no ability to see any drives in there. does the gen 6 server not have the ability to use the raid card directly with omv

      Put simply no, you'll need to change the bios settings, disable the raid option in the bios and set it to something like AHCI. OMV does not support hardware raid out of the box, it will require a driver and the option enable hardware raid. But, doing that, if it works, OMV will see your drives as one and you have no way of monitoring the raid itself.

      so i need to go into the bios and change from raid to ahci? and this will give omv the ability to control the raid card, or it just isnt possible with my current server?

      Having searched for that particular server, it has a P410 raid card, which is a dedicated raid card to get that server to work with OMV you'll need an HBA card something like a Dell PERC H200 or H310 flashed to IT mode.

      With that card, you either have to let it create the raid array and OMV will see one drive -OR- you have to create a single drive raid 0 array for each drive (I know it sounds terrible). Otherwise, you will have to go with geaves idea.
