  1. Yes they are different sizes as they contain a differing quantity of programming lines, the syntaxs and structures in both seem the same though. I would gues that the extra2 file has less lines/content as it may serve a differnet process in the loader (possibly upgrades maybe). I used the following post as a guide to unpack the lzma archives, modify internal files and then repack: https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/14358-tutorial-modifying-104b-loader-to-default-to-24-drives/ I concur, did the same, better safe than sorry. My mistake I sh
  2. Hi IG-88 Thanks for replying, can you expand on this comment I am unsure of what you mean/refer to: I had missed the lower part of the patch file and I guess would need to add: +_replace 'maxlanport="2"' 'maxlanport="4"' /tmpRoot/etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf I found the extra.lmza and extra2.lmza similar so made my mods to both files, for brevity I only posted the extra.lmza for comment, or does the extra2 require different modification? I ignored the wol options as I did not think it important in my use case or do they need t
  3. Could someone double check the mods I made to synoinfo_override.conf and jun.patch to enable 4 lan ports in the 918+ extra.lmza attached, its my first time modding this type of file and I just want to make sure (I did use for new install and it did work, seemingly). cheers extra.lzma
  4. - Outcome of the installation/update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: New Install - Loader version and model: Juns v1.04b - DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: Yes - both extra/extra2 918+_v0.13 as per IG88 - Installation type: BAREMETAL - a2sdi-h-tf SuperMicro dual 10gbe, HP NC360T, UNAS build 8 x 4tb hdd and 4 x 1tb ssd plus optane cache ssd - Additional Comment: modified both lzma to provide for default of 4 nic ports, injected rd.gz and zImage from PAT as per IG88

    Just found the section by IG88 on the 918 extra files mod to boot drive, works like a charm, posted too quick for help.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    New install and am running juns 1.04b loader and DSM 6.2.3 25426 PAT file. DS918+ I have a Supermicro A2SDi-H-TF mobo that has 2 onboard 10gbe copper nics, Icannot get these to show up in DSM (I have used a USB ethernet dongle and the IPMI to install and configure DSM so far). The onboard nics are intel x557 I think which should be supported by ixgbe inbuilt driver. Can anyone suggest what to do to get nics showing up ?

    NVMe cache support

    New install and am running juns 1.04b loader and DSM 6.2.3 25426 PAT file. I have an Optane p800 m2 installed on the PCIE x2 m2 slot in a Supermicro A2SDi-H-TF mobo (its on the 918 supported list), it shows in bios but not in DSM, or even ssh'ing and running 'nvme list'. I tried the libsynonvme.so.1 in /usr/lib64 and reboot but still no change. Can anyone help with suggestions to try ?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Cheers for letting me know, I had disabled vt-d in bios previously. I think your board has 4 x 1gbe nic ports and these should be recognized by the 1.04 loader natively or older loader with extra.izma as you have found out and installed. My board only has 2 x 10gbe copper nic ports and I think these require a higher driver revision than what is in the latest loader, as well as the extra.izma. I don't think kernel panic is occuring or the i915 is problematic, I think the install is occurring fine just no nic driver working. I may try and get a usb to ehternet adaptor and

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Ok I have searched thru the threads and find that my motherboard should be fully supported according to IG-88 where he responded to a request to provide the nic driver. The actual nic chip is x557 (I got it wrong in my last post) and is part of the ixgbe.ko driver in IG-88's extra.izma which I have already tried. So the only thing I can think of is a kernel panic is occuring, possibly related to the i915 driver maybe as my cpu has no integrated gpu, plus I am also booting in legacy mode so that the thumb drive will boot. Can the i915 be disabled?

    Hi All I recently built a new Xpenology NAS using the following HW: Supermicro A2SDi-H-TF mini itx motherboard that has an intel atom SOC C3758 cpu Intel SOC C3000 integrated 2 10gbe copper ports X553 SOC controller for 12 sata ports, 4 x sata3 and 2 x mini-sas 8gb ecc ram Intel optane 800p m2 nvme Unas 810 case modified to house icy dock 4 bay ssd unit Seasonic 250W 1U psu 2 x 500gb ssd 2 x 1000gb ssd 8 x 4tb 3.5" I have been using Xpenology as my NAS OS for 5 yrs and am acustomed to installing it bare metal on H
  12. Hi cristimv Sorry to hear about your NAS, thats the exact scenario I am trying to avoid. For me it would be disastrous if this occurred while I was away for work given how reliant I am on the functions provided by the 1515 currently and yes I am well aware of the atom bug and my unit is affected. Its interesting what you say about the cameras, when I was running exponology as a VM on my G8 I had 4 cameras and never had any trouble, I have a 4 pack camera licence. My plans have changed somewhat since the original post, I have purchased a HP ML310e V2 server with a xeon 1241 cpu, I w
  13. Hi All Need some advice on best way to proceed with a g8 microserver. I have 16gb of ram, an e3-1260l, and 4x3 TB wd red drives. I also have 2 pice cards spare, so I could use one of them. I have a dual Nic card and a raid card that can be reprogrammed to IT mode. My question is what is the best path forward for me to run Xpenology. Should I go bare metal or Esxi. In more detail, how should I best use the HW at my disposal in each scenario? Currently I run a ds1515+ which I am looking at retiring, it runs 6.1 dsm. I use the dsm virtual machine licence to run mail, cloud, caldav, c

    Working DSM 6

    Success! I was not able to create a raid group using a 3tb drive, but I dropped the size down to 600gb and have a volume 1 now. Apps seems to install and run ok, now for some further testing. Do i need to keep the 16gb disk 2 or can I delete it now I have a volume in operation?

    Working DSM 6

    Yep, realized that I just deleted the Syno OS which was on the 16GB drive its booted into the install DSM screen. I think I will just blow it away and re-import the OVF and add a third drive. Would there be anyway of transitioning the boot disk to an Xpenology bootloader for bare metal install?
