Re: HP ProLiant server running NetBSD 9 setup suggestions?

And, perhaps most importantly, is there anything I should install, configure, or tune to keep the fans nice and quiet? Booting the NetBSD 9.0 installer from a USB key, the system was plenty quiet, but I know those fans can move a lot of air if they have to.

I have one myself in the basement. It is a nice machine.

You should install the BIOS updates if you have access to them. The HP
Proliants are a ransomware platform, you you may not have access t

In fact the BIOS, iLO, etc. updates are on the HPE web site, which is something I verified before purchasing. (Which I’d encourage everyone to do if they’re going to do something like this, of course.)

Yeah, I did the same thing. I verified the server was still supported
and the driver downloads were present.

What they don't tell you is, you need a support contract to get them.
Eventually, when you get to the point of the actual download, you need
more then a HP account. You need a support contract.

They say it but they do not check it. Any firmware download
for g7 or g8 is free and I recently got some new of them.
