  1. Thanks I will try today. Do i need root access or just add socket/serial port?
  2. I have quad GbE pcie card and I want to use it with DS918. All 4 ports are connected to switch with created bond (LACP) connection. When I add second mac with count 2 into grub.cfg they both appear in DSM. If I do the same with 4 mac adresses and change count to 4, DSM still shows only 2 connections. Is it possible to have 4 ports active in DS918?
  3. I am trying to get my quad NIC card working to create bond. I had add 4 mac adresses in grub.cfg as: set mac1=...................F18 set mac2=...................F19 set mac3=...................F1A set mac4=...................F1B I had added 4 pci devices (4 ports) to the VM and it is working - LAN 1 - virtual, LAN2- one of the added ports / also works when I remove virtual -then I have 2 ports that are passed-trough to the VM. Problem is that in DSM it only shows LAN 1 and LAN 2. Is there a way to get LAN 3 and LAN 4 to show up in DSM? I had also tried to
  4. Is there a way to get 1GbE quad port card working with DS918 (I would like to bond 4 ports in it). I had edit grub.cfg with 4 mac adresses (instead of original 2), passed 4 pci devices by Proxmox to Xpenology but in DSM/network/network interfaces, there is only LAN1 (virtual intel E1000) and LAN2 (one port from quad card). When I delete Virtual intel card there is also only 2 LAN ports (both from passed card). Is there some way to edit it so DSM will see all 4 ports or it is not possible/ some limit of ds918?
  5. I added a spare ssd drive for testing cache and it showed up without problem (dont want to play with nvme it will be to complicated ) Could You tell me how to make the loader hidden but get a extra virtual sata hdd seen by storage manager? I want to have it attached to dsm (just as a copy of system partition like on other drives). If I would like to update the system I could temporary remove the passed sas controller, create snapshot of the virtual disk and then make an update ( If there will be a problem I could just restore it and after that attach the controller back t
  6. YES! Made it! All drives attached to sas controller are visible in Storage Manager. What I have done was to convert my individual ( thanks to flyride ) synoboot.img by the old version of StarWind V2V Converter (v8.165). After that I had to upload both files .vmdk and flat.vmdk with synoboot.img so ESXI could see it and apply it as sata 0:0 disk. System got recovered from 3 hdds that was visible last time and now it all looks promising. Now its time for nvme, gpu for transcoding, quad ethernet card and dvbt tuner to work with it. Ps. Can I add another 2 disks to the
  7. So I am trying again. I wanted to convert my synoboot.img by Starwind V2V converter instead of using the one I had downloaded but I get error "warning this format is not compatible with esxi vmdk format". After creating the vdmk file I can not add existing hard drive in ESXI so I can not create the boot disk... Any idea ?
  8. I am using 1.04b synoboot downloaded by Xpenology tool ( I also tried this one with vdmdk/ I think I downloaded them from here). This is what I got (should I change the line 37 inside grub cfg?)
  9. I got ds 918 loader and vdmk (found somewher over internet) on sata 0:0. Controller is passed-through and I stil dont see all disks. I had passed the controller to Win10 pe, removed all partitions and format all drives (they are all visible on other vm systems also). When I try to pass-through to Xpenology there is only maxiumum 4 drives (one 6tb drive is out/got some errors, now I will have to use 5 drives). I can find synology over the net and install system on drives passed by controller but I can never get all drives to work (sometimes it shows 3, sometimes 1, sometimes 4....). I would lik
  10. I need all the data and synology applications on SHR all connected to pcie sata controller, just like on baremetal instalation + nvme I have connected to mainboard for cache ( I need ESXI for other systems and other devices pass-through that is way I can not go baremetal)/ I will use ds918 for that( I can optionally use virtual 16gb/ just need an option of snapshots to revert update, etc by esxi) What do I need exactly to make it run? Just synoboot +vmdk with correct serial and mac adresses in grub.cfg + one virtual sata set to 0:0? I want to use pcie sas controller with 2x4 sata cables (
  11. So I am trying to pass-trough pcie sata/sas controller( flashed into it mode). Dont know what I am doing wrong but there is no way to pass controller with 6 disks attached. Sometimes it shows 5 disks in DSM, sometimes one, sometimes 4 (depends on when I add another sata controller, scsi controller, etc). Tried with 2 controllers and 3 pcie slots on my mobo without luck. Can someone explain how it should be done (I did not think there will be so many problems with it...)
  12. I want to build new NAS that will have xpenology and extra virtual systems. I want to use Intel 8gen (with igpu), 2x nvme, 6x hdd in a SHR poool (or raid5/6)+ extra disks for backups, downloads and temporary files. First option is ESXI on nvme + xpenology VM with hba and all single disks passed-through. Second option is baremetal and synology virtual machine manager. Probably DS918 platform would be the best to have transcode and nvme cache support but is it possible to have it on ESXI? Maybe better option will be baremetal in which it should work without major problems, but is there a way to
  13. How and where it should be done? Should it be added to grub.cfg or somewhere else? My controller have 2 outputs (each for 4 sata drives).
  14. I am trying to passtrough LSI SAS controller flashed in IT mode. When I add it to Xpenology DS918 VM in Proxmox as pci device, DSM store management shows only 6 drives - 2 Xpenology drives (boot and system) and 4 hdds instead of 6 (there is space for 16 drives). Anyone know how to fix it?
  15. I have a question. How save is to keep data inside virtual Xpenology? F.ex Xpenology created in ESXI/Proxmox,etc on one drive, with other drives passed-through to it and SHR pool created by Virtual Xpenology system. If something will happen with VM, some system update will fail, drive with VM get damaged, or pool drives will be disassembled in order to connect them to newer hardware, what will happen with SHR pool? Is it going to rebuild itself or all data will be lost? Has anyone had experience with such a situation?
  16. Hi. Can You recommend some DVB T2 tuner that will work with DSM6 VM. On synology website are only usb dongles: PCTV DVB-T2 292e NanoStick and PCTV nanoStick T2. Does anyone use any other e.g. TerraTec Cinergy T2 stick micro, August T210, Hauppage WinTV Nexus or some other? Maybe pci pass-through work on some pcie tuner? Did someone tried that? I would like to split tv signal to couple rooms in home and have option to receive it on computers and tv players ( also have option to record programs on xpenology).
  17. 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?
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. 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+)?
  22. 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
