HP Proliant Microserver gen8 - Celeron version

Hi all,

I have got this server to replace my old Synology NAS. It's less than 6 months old with 2 new 2TB WD RED drives in RAID 1, single 1.5TB backup drive and Debian 8 as a server system on a SSD. About two weeks ago the server went from blue to blinking red which suggests an error. Debian logs showed nothing wrong and I didn't bother with iLO at that time (everything worked after a reboot). Logged in through iLO after a second blinking event later and it showed me that a one of the HDD is failing (erasing) and the controller (PCIe P410) also showed an error. I also see in iLO that the second ETH port states "degraded - link down" even if it's not used. After the last red blinking and a reboot the hdd and controller looks fine again but it did a couple of times before. I have got a spare new P410 controller (got a new 2TB drive too just in case) but it won't fix the ethernet port. Any suggestions? The reason I'm asking is that I have seen some posts when the mtb had to be replaced in this server series. Thanks, Pepe

THe server won't pop into the red mode for a disconnetcted NIC.  What error message does the iLO and IML logs show?  Have you ran the array diagnostics utility?

Re: HP Proliant Microserver gen8 - Celeron version

The diagnostics showed nothing when I ran them after the reboot. However, looking at the IML it shows 3 different errors 5 count each. Internal and External enclosure on bay 0 Slot 1 and then Drive Array Controller on slot 1 error.

It's probably a faulty controller but I'd rather ask a professional. Thanks, Pepe

Updates: Done a full diagnostic test of the system and everything passed.

Re: HP Proliant Microserver gen8 - Celeron version

Got some new updates after the red flashing came again. The IML says "Uncorrectable Machine Check Exception (Board 0, Processor 1, APIC ID 0x00000000, Bank 0x00000003, Status 0xB2000000'00800400, Address 0x00000000'00000000, Misc 0x00000000'00000000)". This sounds like a faulty processor: http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/docs/enterprise/servers/gen9/tsg/246310.htm

I'll do a complete test in the HPIP but it has passed once everything it could.

Re: HP Proliant Microserver gen8 - Celeron version

Hi guys,

Got some new updates. Changed the P410 SA Controller and currently with only a single disk/logical drive. It won't last 24 hours without the red flashing. I use it as an FTP server only so far and the data is fine and accessible. Updated the iLO and IP to the latest versions but it doesn't really matter I guess. It always starts red flashing when the sever is not in use.

Re: HP Proliant Microserver gen8 - Celeron version

More updates! I have removed all the hard drives and connected one of them over USB. It took about an hour to start red flashing and Debian unmounted the usb drive in the process. It sounds like a server OS problem since the RAID controller is not even in use and still gives me a failure error.
