I am beginning to wonder if the Gen 8's offer sufficient to encourage one to stick with them ?
They are larger than the original models plus they cost twice the price of the original models; this for a unit that is basically irreparable once the warranty has expired.
The good old HP Microserver days are over unfortunately.
I have just replaced one of the 'old' units simply 'cos no spares are available. That's a real pisser

A couple of other articles that might be of interest:
My unit has "pink-lighted", caused by (I think) a surge delivered via the telephone line / router / network connection. The fan doesn't spin up; this could be either the PSU or because the POST test failed due to the network connection (M/B failure).
I am considering starting the fault-finding by plugging a normal PSU into the motherboard to see what results.
Can anyone suggest a reason why this might not be a good idea / alternatives ?
