Just install one of the old supported OSes on another drive, reboot and run the firmware update. It's a self extracting executable.
With HP and Dell, it's their intention to support you by providing an additional layer of management on top of the actual manufacturers product. But you have to be in warranty to be able to leverage that support. If you intend to run equipment longer than the 5 year warranty, don't use Dell or HP or live without any firmware upgrades or support. If you use Dell or HP, replace hardware when it's out of warranty.
HP Gen8 servers are from 2012-2013 so 7-8 years old and not the best candidates for new installations.
@pete-s wow no more than 1 year ago aruba switches (hpe) where served with real lifetime. Did they cut warranty so much?! Also they where replaced within 1 week.
I've seen a lot of netgear go crazy, but it was the unmanaged tier stuff.
I figured it out. You have to use the Printer defaults button on the advanced tab. It opens the same window as shown in the OP, but it will apply it to the clients.
Yes, that is where you always do it. Remember that when you change printer drivers you need to change it all over.
I use the Dell Site and quote it as is since we are a partners and then provide the quote with the spec I want to our VAR (GHA Technologies) and they provide me the quote and anything comparable from HPE or other server vendor.
From Scott's post it seemed to say the data written to the drives that allows rebuilding the array when the RAID is replaced is what is missing. If that data is gone, aren't you hosed? Unless it is backed up somewhere?
It's not the disks that are bad, it's the controller itself. It's ROM is messed up.
With luck the flashed controller will pull the array data back in.
Wow. I can understand dropping product lines if they're not making money, but immediately burning it all without communicating this to customers. HPE, that doesn't look good at all.
I agree, not a good sign for the health of the new company. Burning bridges with customers, presumably big ones, means that they were desperate and had to make the move rather than just doing it strategically.
