Because you didn't update your bios to be able to display the updated cpu. You don't need to update the bios to run the 1600 series cpu's, but the MSS will display the cpu as unknown.

Mac Time Machine client works without any server update...


I can report that by only installing the .dmg file that is included with this update on my Macbook pro, and creating a "Mac" share on my ex470, I can successfully back up my system using Time Machine!

I tested restoring a few files, and it works great.

This sure beats the hacks I tried to use before to get this working.

Thanks guys!

Hmm, in the post-install script it does this? Because in the initial part of the install the Server Console was closed automatically by the installer. I did read where another user linked notepad, I can modify the Add-In to deliver a no-op exe to fake out the installer.

I need to take a look at those post-install scripts, but at 3AM last night I was too fuzzy to go any further. #-o

Thanks, I know I'm lagging behind you guys with this, but my goal is to get a user-installable package that is simple and easy, not just hack it into running on my server. You guys figure out the tricky stuff and I'll figure out how to deliver it in an add-in.

Wow!!! This is awesome works guys. Thanks for your persistence and skill. It sure does look like this is going to work very well and I bet you guys even figure out how to get the HP health lights working properly with this software mod.

It sure does seem a shame that HP has not stepped up at this point and said, okay, you guys have got this figured out almost 100% so let's work together and get this working 100% properly for you guys. It would seem like that is a win-win situation for HP and us. Maybe someone inside HP will give the go ahead to leak the info and files necessary to make this work perfectly for us EX47X owners who have the hardware modications necessary to run this.

I actually updated with the 4/23/09 build. However, it might not be a bad idea to extract both and run UltraCompare to see what changed.

Here's the part of the postinstall script that calls WHSConsoleExit -


' Run WHSConsoleExit.exe /r
sWHSConsoleExitExe = sWHSDir & "WHSConsoleExit.exe"
sWHSConsoleExitExeQuoted = """" & sWHSConsoleExitExe & """"
sReturn = oShell.Run(sWHSConsoleExitExeQuoted & " /r", 0, true)
' Change WHSConsoleExit.exe to visible
Set oFile = oFSO.GetFile(sWHSConsoleExitExe)
oFile.Attributes = 0

yeah the way I got it to install was very slap dash but it proves that without too much effort it can all work fine on the San Juan image

I now have a repeatable install; and we have resolved Alex's earlier error so that we can move quite quickly to get Part 2 of the how to documented, next stage will be automating this through an Add-In which we are working on.

I share Alex's view that we don't want to hack code for this install; so we have tried to make this as clean as possible, and not used any of HP's code (outside of the actual 2.5 update) to get this working.

I've been quite pleased with the results of the Transcoder, and just for kicks have run this on a 512MB system and it didn't really struggle. Outstanding is still the lack of status lights; but maybe we can sort that out.

Moderators,

Would you suggest uninstalling the older MSS-1.3 updates for a cleaner install ?

From what I have read in the forums, status light is controlled by HPHealthMon, HPDiskMon and HPNetMon services. Could we not copy these services and associated files/settings from EX47X series servers running current software version?
