Well, here they are, all in one place.

Included below, are all of the hard to find drivers for this server.
You are free to download and use these files as they are available in the pubic domain and any technical support will be afforded to you by the vendor of files provided here.

Monitor your Remote Access Website on port 80/443 with the free edition of Smarterstats. This software grovels your IIS logs and displays the results in real time with a nice and easy to read GUI format.
Note: If you purchased the BMC Remote Access Card, you can manage the HP N36L/N40L/N54L Mircoserver from a remote web based UI through a separate IP address. (New driver available, 12.07.2012 above)
Note: The new BMC Firmware, dated 12.07.2012, does not seem to update using IE9. It seems to hang on the update page. Use Firefox through the Web UI from a networked client off the server.
You can download them at your convenience.
This website and the files offered are hosted by a real HP-N36L running WHS2011 from my home. Given the security updates and patches Microsoft delivers, this server may go down unexpectedly for short periods of time. Anyone owning one of these servers knows full well the number of reboots a WHS server may require in consuming updates and patches. I apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced while accessing this server. Should this server be unavailable at the time you visit, the files offered above are available on other cloud hosted sites.
You will not need these drivers if you plan to install WHS 2011.
