  1. SHR is for Synology Hybrid Raid, so yes it's only for Synology (and Xpenology of course). I don't know anything about QNAP - my suggestion is to google it. SHR is nothing about stability or self healing. SHR lets to use full disks capacity for different size disks. If you have all disks of the same capacity SHR is pointless. Synology or QNAP? Qnap has it's features as well - for sure you can install additional software as well (Entware?). Biggest benefit of DSM (Synology/Xpenology) is number of android/ios apps to access data remotely. Everything else can be achieved on any PC setup w

  2. yes and NO its a combination a two standard tools in linux, mdadm and lvm2 (and the file systems ability to "grow") any linux should be able to read a SHR volume, the special of synology is automatically creating and extending things without the user having any trouble or even seeing how its working (but it needs some basic understanding of the matter - your example with 3 x 8TB and adding a fourth disk in a 4 disk units will not work as the added bigger disk part over 8TB will not have redundancy and would not be used in a SHR, only if one the three 8TB disks is also replaced with a

  3. I had couple of troubles with my installition with a good google search, I have found out couple of fixes. I have combined them into one script. This will be easier for many beginners. I am not really good Bash script writer but this is just fine. I have tried couple of times. Tried on DSM 6.2.3 with Juns 1.04 Loader on a Vm. Use it with caution. https://github.com/Jlozde/Xpenology-6.2.3-EasyFix Usage: wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Jlozde/xpenology-6.2.3-easyfix/master/patch.sh chmod +x patch.sh ./patch.sh reboot

  4. @Steveyg777: if you're update freak then you should go with Synology and actually you always may consider some older models . As from observations, Synology supports their devices with DSM updates for 6-7 years, so even with models from 2017-2018 you would have better guarantee of future updates then with Xpenology. With Synology you also have easy access to your NAS with Quick Connect which is not supported on Xpenology and on Xpenology you have to use DDNS or Virtual LAN (like ZerotierOne). Sometimes also you may experience hardware compatibility issues, installation issues etc. To

  5. thats a big fat NO, updates usually is a "it depends" and for now dsm 6.2.3 update3 is the last version you can install (6.2.4 and 7.0 beta do not work with the current loader and there is no sign for a new loader), accidental update can be a lot more trouble then you can handle (or might willing to handle) if some command line for linux and bios settings are "geeky" then i'd suggest a original unit from synology or qnap, in most cases a 4 drive unit with 2-3 big enough disks should do it (there are 16TB disks available) i'd also suggest just reading the synology faq/kn

  6. @asdvsss Nein, sorry. Ich weiß auch gar nicht mehr genau wie ich das hinbekommen habe Habe mich grob an eine Anleitung aus dem Unraid Forum gehalten. - Linux VM - I assigned 1 core (2 threads) to the VM - Q35-2.11 (Q35-2.9 works too) - OVMF - put the synoboot.img to you primary vdisk location, USB Bus - another disk (either vdisk or actual disk) in 2nd vdisk location, SATA Bus - go to XML view and edit the network line <interface type='bridge'> <mac address='XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX'/> <source bridge='br0'/>

  9. For those Linux newbs who need exact instructions on installing the script, follow this here. Please be VERY careful with syntax especially when working as root. If you have not turned on ssh in Control Panel remote access, do it Download putty or other ssh terminal emulator for ssh access Connect to your nas with putty and use your admin credentials. It will give you a command line "$" which means non-privileged In File Station, upload FixSynoboot.sh to a shared folder. If the folder name is "folder" and it's on Volume 1
