  1. As many of you know the default max capacity if we are to follow Synolgy spec DS3615xs is 32G and DS3617xs is 48GB. Regardless of that for our own custom builts, if I install 64GB or 128GB into my box... will XPEnology actually make use that extra available RAM, or it will ignore anything beyond the Synology's firmware Max RAM 32/48 GB limits? For example more RAM to host Dockers or other types of VMs / Minecraft Server / App Servers / Video Transcoding, etc... Currently I have 64GB installed, but according to DS3615xs static specs it shows 32GB, in the Syno
  2. From experience, the LUN# or physical HDD# don't necessary matches within Synology to actual physical layout. Most of the time the Disk# (LUN#) is determined by the SATA Controller you are using.
  3. instead of going at this backwards... why not just setup a VMware and run DSM6 that is working already in VM ?
  4. I was doing some googling around, and apparently Driver wise for Linux, from Adaptec 6 series and above, it uses the same architecture, as in HDDs from Series 6, 7 and 8 are all interchangeable, however... that might or might not be the same in regards to drivers.
  5. wow, sorry for the late reply, I've been on recently. something simple to keep in mind with XPEnology. most of the boot loaders we use here are for version specific, sometimes you might get lucky, and you can upgrade to another patch without problem, but as you have found out, sometimes it simply can not be done to preserve compatibility. if your system is new enough, you might want to consider running XPEnoboot 5.2-5967.1 the 32bit is really meant for old machines that will not run any 64bit version, and as such it has long been ... "forgotten" per say, don't expect any updates t
  6. Hi does anyone have experience or know if the Adaptec 7 Series cards are supported? ... rs/series7 In special I'm planning to pick up this one model 72405: 24 internal ports since all the other cards I've tried didn't get much success breaking the 16 SATA host adapter limitation, by combining several 8 ports, it'll appear I'll have to get an actual card that can deliver 24 ports in a single card to solve my problem.
  7. Very interesting results. I've seen similar problems with Windows, like A lot!, and yes it's Windows fault from my tests, on other cases not related to yours. But the description is very similar, in my case Windows Explorer will simply grinds to almost a halt if I try to copy a HUGE batch of files, specially if each file is larger than a few GB, and you are trying to copy over several GB or TB of data from one server to another server. yet, If i try to copy each file 1 at a time, or even smaller batches of like 5 or 10 files at a time, then it copies them over really fast using max
  8. Definitely replace it, since that is a permanent issue on that disk, it will reappear again if you keep it. since you are still under warranty, might as well change it and get a new replacement.
  9. I'm starting to believe this might have something to do with the problem I'm seeing. ... e-2_70-GHz Expansion Options Scalability 1S Only PCI Express Revision 3.0 PCI Express Configurations ‡ Up to 1x16, 2x8, 1x8+2x4 Max # of PCI Express Lanes 16 but if that is true, then how did they managed to do those 40+, 50+ HDDs builds with XPEnology?
  10. if it's from the new HDD, then it's safe to hit the Repair button. alternatively, as you mentioned, just take it out, have it scanned on a Linux / Windows machine to see if it's an actual bad sector on the new HDD, then send it in for RMA if confirmed it's a bad drive.
  11. Yup, I did that already, as I did read and still remember an old post of you talking about it. So, I went ahead and disabled all the features from the motherboard, serial, parallel, SATA, sound, etc only left the 2 Intel Ethernet on board. I tried plugging the SATA controllers in different PCI-E slots hoping it might help, but still nothing. I'm starting to believe maybe it's the motherboard, and I might have to end up using a less sophisticated motherboard with a lot less features, then maybe that might work since now I'm using the ATTO 16 port in my main rig, I can experiment w
  12. the 3rd Controller is recognized, but most of the SATA ports are non functional, only the first 2 ports out of the 8 ports, but even when it does show up, it corrupts the controller info, as it will believe it's the 2nd controller, so 2 of the SATA ports between the 3rd and 2nd controller will overlap, which is what caused me to almost corrupt my data. Similar issue when I tried to use the onboard SATA from the motherboard. back then I thought it was just a compatibility issue, but now I know better, it was not, just a weird way how SATA enumeration is handled / recognized by the BIOS / P
  13. Hey guys Does anyone know if the maximum limit by hardware limitation is 16 SATA drives? Because I'm trying to setup 24 SATA disk, but I can't go past 16 without the remaining SATA ports not being recognized from the POST level. Here is what I've tried: 2x SUPERMICRO AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 = works great 3x SUPERMICRO AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 = only drives from the first 2 controller are recognized, the 3rd controller basically is not recognized by the BIOS, is not even XPEnology. If I use Linux is basically the same issue. (tried Ubuntu 16 LTS) So I thought maybe If I used a ATTO Expre
  14. Good news confirmed this 16 port works like a dream I was able to migrate my 2 existing SUPERMICRO AOC-SAS2LP-MV8, into 1 ATTO ExpressSAS H60F Just plug and play. Disk Groups and RAIDs volumes remained intact.
