  1. Is t going to work in VM Xpenology also?
  2. I am thinking about building some low tdp standalone Xpenology box instead my server Xeon builds. I was thinking about buying cpu for DS918 loader and get it on hypervisor to have also extra windows system (in case of backup to LTO that probably will not be possible by XPenology). Mobo is not my main need because I will be using sas controller. I would like to get some "4k Group 1" cpu like Celeron J3455 or some similar pentium G, Xeon E3 or core i5/7 that could transcode 4k (if it will be possible on VM) and maybe some cache in future. What do You suggest to look for?
  3. As I know it is not possible to transcode videos in Xpenology as VM on ESXI. For now I have Xpenology 918 as VM to manage shr pool, downloads, audio station, etc, but I am thinking how to transcode videos by DLNA. Its good that I can play videos by build in dsm media center but I have a lot of videos that my tvs can not play. I can not get Plex spk and Jellifyn in Docker to work. What are Your suggestions to have a multimedia server that can transcode not supported videos from Xpenology and be able to play videos with srt files? Maybe some unix distro like Ubuntu VM + Docker + Jellyfin?
  4. How it should be done? I tried in esxi host/maintenance mode, I enabled it, rebooted, exit maintenance mode, add pci device to VM but after I started it, hdds didnt show up.
  5. Whats the best way to add sata drives to VM for btrfs shr pool? Normaly add them as raw drives or some other option like passthrough, etc?
  6. I am trying to mount hdds directly to xpenology vm in proxmox and I need to connect 7 sata drives to it. It works with sata after adding model/serial line in config file (or by "qm set" command) but the limit is 6 drives. When I try same way with scsi it mounts only first drive. I tried changing Proxmox grub config file so I could passthrough whole LSI Logic Megaraid 3108 controller to it. After that I can add it in menu, start vm but I can not find ip number and access it. How can I add these drives (DS918+)?
  7. Is there a way to add more than 7 drives? When I write lines with sata3, sata4, etc in config file they show up in DSM, but when I try with this SCSI solution it only passthrough one drive from raid. When I change it back to sata, it works again. Is there a way to fix it? I would like to attach 8 sata hdds to xpenology
  8. Thanks. I will give a try with 918 today. If I want to passthrough sata drives for pool do I need to write them also in synoboot grub.cfg or only in Proxmox VM config file?
  9. One more question. Can I " jump" from one platform to another if storage pool with data is already created? F.ex if I create Vm, pass-through all drives, put my data on it, but after some time I would like to try different Ds. Can new VM (with passed-through same list of disks) not going to format the pool? Ps. Will ssd cache work if I pass-through (some cheap) 2x ssd by sata or it have to be some nvme by pci adapter?
  10. How many disks does DS918 support? Also is it possible to add more than 8 cpu threats in it?
  11. Which one will be better for hw transcoding on Proxmox running with xeon e5v3 (2,4 - 3,2 ghz turbo)? For now I was testing DS3617 platform that can support 16 cpu threads. Another thing is that I need around 8 or even more sata ports. Will it be better if I use DS918 with newer kernel? From the table I read it support ssd cache but does it support at least 8 hdds and does 8 cpu threads will be enough for transcoding?
  12. I am testing small btrfs pool. I added 2 old sata drives (ext4) from my previous synology box and add the lines " sata_: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-____,serial=____,backup=0 " in /etc/pve/qemu-server/ config file and they show up in DSM without any problem. Can all extra drives be added this way or I had to perform some extra commands in terminal? In DSM I dont see any S.M.A.R.T. informations about them/ is theres a way to fix it? And also- how can I get on the pool from Windows by ftp/sftp ( FIlezilla, Winscp, etc)? Do I need to mount this pool in Proxmox or something? Where it is stored? I can access only by Xpenology ip to shared folders only as admin not by root.
  13. Thanks. I will read a little more about it and I will think over that idea. Right now I have a zfs pool created by Proxmox that suppost to be run all by Xpenology. Problem is that by NFS i can only use file station, download station and DSM have no extra access to this pool like to its own disks. I would like to have half of my server working just lije baremetal Xpenology NAS and other half use for my other Virtual machines, etc. If it is going to work I think I will start to copy my data again on old drives.
  14. So if I use host system ( ESXI, PROXMOX,etc) and passthrough all my needed sata disks to virtual machine (Xpenology) they will work like normal disks connected directly to it, independent from the host? Then if I create btrfs pool from those disks by DSM I will have whole control of them by xpenology/ not by host system (so we can say that it will be entirely separated NAS machine located on my server)? So whole data on it will be stored on normal btrfs partition / not any kind of huge virtual disk or something simmilar? I am asking because I am thinking about moving my whole data pool directly to Xpenology because I want to have control of snapshots, indexing etc that I can not deal with right now when the pool is connected by NFS share into DSM . Ps. Will the system (DSM) that will be stored on virtual sata (on host ) is also going to have some copy on btrfs pool? (I had it like that on my old DSM5 that every disk was splitted on partitions and had a copy of DSM system)
