  1. I had trouble with the HP 220 branded Broadcom / LSI 2308 card and the sas2flash version not allowing the 9207-8e V20 firmware update to complete because of the in-built manufacturer flag. Way around it has been stated many times around the web by using sas2flash V14 but took me ages to find. Hence here attached to save others searching. And FYI if you are searching and come across this, after I updated to V20 I then had problems with SSD trim operations which turns out V20 doesn't support 😵 (see this thread:) So had to downgrad

  4. Many thanks doron, much appreciated. New job for today, I have a red x against disk 3 🤕
  5. Just last week had to increase the capacity of my array and went for 3 x 3TB SAS data drives and a Seagate IronWolf ST10000VN0008 10TB SATA as the parity drive, with a Crucial/Micron RealSSD m4/C400/P400 M4-CT128M4SSD as the Cache. All connected through a new HP220 HBA in IT mode as my Gen8 Proliant board doesn't support NAS. At first I had issues with the Dynamix cache folders plugin that kept my cpu bouncing between 15-100% and found a thread here that pointed me to uninstall it and fixed the problem. Then realised I had this issue where the SAS drives were not spinning dow
  6. Is there still no simply way of undeleting a single file in V6.8.3? I know with some work it can be retrieved from one of the discs before a parity check wipes it from all but it seems to be an obvious but missing tool? Wait, wait, now found this thread to add a recycle bin: So hopefully people looking for 'undelete' in the future will see this.
  7. I love the fact that it is the most stable OS I have ever used. Previous OS server attempts resulted in lost data and disc failures. I'd like to have one touch presets for disc upgrades.👍
  8. It was the ashamed.
  9. But of course the firmware and driver updates are only available in Win, Redhat or Suse platforms so I can't install them. Bit catch 22 here, I can't get access to the webgui for the iLo maintenance page because I need an update to the iLo version!
  10. There is nothing else. Server NIC, cable to router. Haven't set up the rest of the network yet. I've tried the two ports on the back of the server and 43 of the port on the new router. I will check for bent pins though. I chatted HP support and the is definitely something not right as the BIOS will not allow me to change the DCHP settings. Despite me not having an active paid warranty, he has given me some updates to try.
  11. Yes tried different ports in the router. HP 332i NIC. HP support has given me the updates I need for the iLo system and NIC (despite the warranty bring out) so will try that when I get chance.
  12. So, still working on this. Upgraded the cache disc to SSD as I'd already ordered it and bought a LAN cable tester. Checked all the cables I have and all pass. Transfer speeds still low and I also notice the internet speed is an 1/8th of the speed of my laptop, which leads me to thinks it's the NIC driver. Am investigating how to update firmware parts from HPE for the Proliant Gen 8, how do I know if I have the right driver for UnRaid? HP site has various drive updates but for the following OS's Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server (x86-64) (19) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Serve
  13. 12Mb/s as above. Even so 3-4 wireless?
  14. Upgraded to 6.6.6 (thought I'd done that already but must have been an intermediate update). Updated the Proliant Gen8 BIOS too. I've tried a different cable directly to the router from the server and a cable from the laptop to the server (which does improve it to 12Mb/s). Even tried the second NIC port (and both on the server). I just disconnected the cache drive in case it was that slowing the transfer, but no, 4Mb/s (tops) wireless.
  15. New router but was doing the same on the old one at the other house. Yes Gbit Ethernet, Cat5e cable installed. Flash drive replaced and error resolved for that. Transfer speed of 2.3Mb/s...
