  1. FYI You only need to change bios C! for 6. It effects the power button....
  2. The onboard nic (Broadcom BCM95723) works in 5.2, however the performance is much better with the other two pcie cards....
  3. Skiptar Two Issues First, BCM95723 is no longer supported. So in bios disable onboard network card. Next, try a card (Intel CT PCIE Gigabit, HP NC360T) Second, in bios disable CPU C1 power management setting
  4. Hello I'm back again, yesterday I setup a test on one of my N54L's. DMS3615xs_23739 works correctly Hardware wise Intel PCIE Desktop Nic e1000e is in the middle x4 slot 10Gb ConnectX2 in the x16 slot I reflashed the card according the PID from Mellanox The card is native Mellanox Infiniband but the ports can be configured to do IP or Infiniband This is just a test no data involved On the desktop I can see the Intel Nic but not the Mellanox 10GB nic Here is the log. dmesg -wH +0.000002] e1000e 000
  5. Thanks for the help. I have to return the hardware that I had this weekend to test.
  6. I changed the macs last number sequence to be 1, then 2, then 3 and saved as text but for some reason error 13 over and over ...yuk
  7. I just bought the connectx3 card last week so I wanted to make sure it works (it does with my limited test). I know more about the connect2 cards since I've had them for a long time. I tried changing grub to 3 macs. but now i get error 13 every time I try to install it. Thanks
  8. Lat night I changed the test for proof of concept (Ubuntu 16.04 includes the Kernel Sources in /usr/src) and it works. With the the newer single port card and the scripted Mellanox OFED install. I configured the connetcx3 as root in the terminal. This document was great. https://community.mellanox.com/docs/DOC-2431 I'm changing back to connectx2 (dual port) and DS3617 today.
  9. Hi I have another single port card 02:00.0 Network controller: Mellanox Technologies MT27500 Family [ConnectX-3] In another computer if that I could test tomorrow that helps
  10. If it's working that is news to me. My test is stock DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b 7/4/2017 i did not change the usb stick. Do I need to change it for the test? The mellanox card is two ports. cat /var/log/dmesg | grep eth1 cat /var/log/dmesg | grep eth2 just returns nothing I connected the cable from one port to the other port since I do not have a 10GB Switch There are no link link lights and it does not show up with the network interfaces.
  11.

  13. Small Test HP SSF INTEL Xeon D-1527 Installed DS3617 V1.02b for DSm 6.1 Added LSi HBA 9207 Mellanox MHQH29B-XTR ConnectX 2 The system is bare metal Results - The LSI HBA 9207 card is very transparent.

  14. Good news Just test bare metal 1.02b. Works fine, updated to DSM 6.1.5-15254. Then updated o DSM 6.1.5-15254 Update 1. Restoring Data (1 Day over 1GB) Yesterday I tested ESXI 6.5 on the N54L even with 16GB it's just too slow. Today I setup a spare Sandy Bridge PC that I had to test, I needed to scrounge around for another stick of memory it's a whooping 6GB but the Core 2 E8500 runs ESXI 6.5 a lot better . I have a Supermicro X9 (Xeon) board that has poor usb boot support. I'm working on getting a hba then give it a better test. I want to test Connectx3, I see it
  15. During a test today. I setup DSM 6.1 DS3617 (2-27-2017) it works properly. I also have NC360T not plugged to the switch. Then I did the upgrade to DSM 6.1.5-15254 it went thru the whole 10 minutes and I knew something was up.. I shutdown with the power button. When it came back up "Diskstation Not Found". I shutdown again and connected NC360T to the switch. This time it found the NC360 two nics. So I logged in and I see the shutdown was not graceful, ok.... I noticed the BCM5723 is gone, it only shows the NC360T. I ran the update to DSM 6.1.5-15254 Update 1 and it is still MIA
