  1. That wasn't a slight at you, but rather me! I was certain i was missing something!
  2. Am I missing something, or am I just blind? I am running DS3617xs DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 6

    Did you ever figure out what was the root cause? I am running two SAS9211-8i. My cards are on firwmware 20, fyi

    So, I migrated to 36xx and when I did the hard drive change to allow more drives, it would work, but the second I rebooted, it wanted to migrate. It detected a change to a "new 36xx" Any idea what is going on

    What Flyride said. Sorry for the delay in responding to your question.

    So, after playing around for a while, I found the BRTFS file system to be very slow in comparison to EXT4. For example, USB 3.0 transfer speeds almost never broke 100MB/s back to the SHR 2 volume. Keep in mind, this could be important, or not, it was also doing a parity consistency check. So, I nuked everything, and went back to an EXT4. USB 3.0 speeds are between 140-160MB/s. Again, keep in mind, this could be important, or not, it was also doing a parity consistency check at the same time. While I understand there is some benefits going to the newer file system, this

    Well, I managed an install, with 10 disks so far. Its doing the parity/consistency check right now. I love that now, you have the Raid Resync speed options. Running current loader 104.b, and DS918 I also used the CPU script from the other thread, so that its showing the proper CPU.

    @flyride Biggest reason is for hardware transcoding via plex. I have several friends and family that utilize plex, and sometimes, transcoding happens. If software or hardware is better, I don't know. That is my biggest reason. I just had a drive die (Crashed actually, the disk is fine, several tests confirm, again, another WD, go figure) so I figured it would be the perfect time to start fresh. This server is at least 6 years old.

    Currently running 6.1 on an older server. I have new hardware OTW. I have the following: Intel I3-8100 Coffee Lake GIGABYTE Z370 HD3 8GB Hyper X Fury DDR4 2600Mhz Ram 2 LSI SAS9220-8i cards flashed to IT mode I am currently backing up my SHR array to external drives. I have 13HDD's that I will be formatting and putting into this. I am currently running 12, with SHR1. I want to use 13 with SHR2. Its over 50TB. Can I use 1.04B with the DS918 image from Synology, running the latest DSM, with more than the 4 dri
  12. I have been running Xpenology for so long, I am having a total brain fart. I am going to nuke my array and start over soon. Doing my backups now. However, I can't remember, I am switching to new hardware Do I need onboard graphics or a video card to do the install? I am pretty sure I do to install the loader.
  13. Ok, I have been running an AMD system since 2011 with 11 drives. Due to heat issues of the drives, pushing 50c, i ordered at 16 bay Rosewill case. For the price, it can't be beat. Now, I am at the point I think I am going to upgrade my server completely. But, I have a few questions, and I want to make sure I am not about to make a stupid bonehead move, so getting a few opinions on this, is probably as wise endevour. Like I said, my old system is an AMD A3 low end cpu, 4 gigs ram with an sas9220-8i flashed to IT mode. I have 11 drives of all various sizes, totaling
