  1. Upgrading and changing to different PC, advice?

    Turned out there was an issue with my microserver so at this point I haven't changed anything, I was thinking of building a specific small factor machine for xpe down the track.
  2. Micro-ITX build advice

    Hi Guys, I'm looking at changing my current tower running xpenology to a more compact NAS build. I'd like to utilise the current CPU (i3-4130), 5x 2TB Hard Drives and 16GB DDR3 RAM but replace motherboard with a mini-itx board and a compact case. I'm looking for recommendations about what people think are good compatible boards and cases with no driver or build issues. At the moment I am looking at the ASRock H97M-ITX/ac motherboard - http://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/h97m-itxac/ Case I am looking at either: U-NAS NSC-800 - http://www.u-nas.com/product/nsc800.html or Silverstone DS380 - http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=452 Any thoughts on these or other recommendations? Thanks!
  3. Update to 5.2-5644.5 5 from 5.2-5565.2

    Sounds like a great plan if I could afford all that storage! Currently I have 5x 2TB drives in raid5 which should be sufficient redundancy, I'm just concerned about potentially overwriting the data during upgrade... Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. Hi Guys, Looking to update my NAS to the latest version without losing any data/settings, but haven't updated before. Just want to make sure I'm doing it right before I dive in! Is this the correct procedure, if not can you tell me the correct way? Thanks! 1) Configuration backup from Control Panel 2) Create USB with XPEnoboot DS3615xs5.2-5644.5 img 3) Remove previous USB and Boot from newly created USB 4) This is where I am not sure.... How do I apply the latest PAT file, and can I just grab 5644 update 5 PAT or do I need to get 5644 then update manually in order? Also, will my data be safe? I have over 7TB of data and nothing else to store it on for the 'upgrade process'. Any feedback about the above and additional steps from 4 onwards are much appreciated!
  5. Upgrading and changing to different PC, advice?

    Thanks for the info, I'll give that a try and see how it goes. Just to summarise and make sure I'm doing it correctly: 1) create new usb and setup as new install on spare hdd and test for a few days 2) remove spare hdd and install all existing hard drives from server 3) boot from usb and choose install option 4) login through Web interface on another pc using hp ip and run migration assistant The only part I'm not sure about is 'installing' on my existing drives without losing any data. Is it not possible to move everything across and try an upgrade from the usb instead of install? Sent from my C6903 using Tapatalk
  6. Hi All, I have been happily running XPEnology as a server for a few months now. I am currently running DSM 5.2-5565 Update 2. The model is shown as DS3615xs. I am running XPEnoboot from a USB stick. I would like to setup my old HP N36L microserver as my new XPEnology box and transfer my data/drives across to it. Can anyone please advise me the step-by-step directions to install the latest compatible version on my Microserver and moving the drives across/configuring the NAS without losing any of my data or settings. Thanks in advance and sorry for my lack of knowledge! This is a wonderful project, thanks to everyone involved with it!
