  1. Loader sollte nicht freigegeben werden, aber Err0r sprang die Waffe. Schön, dass es für dich geklappt hat. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. The only delay holding me back is time. I am extremely time limited. DS3615xs loader is 100% complete and post is ready to unlock... Just debating whetether I want to do an all in one loader or manage 3 separate loaders. Hence the delay on release for DS3615xs. If all-in-one, then I would want to add a few more pieces in and do some QC testing. Then anyome can just use set model=DS3615xs or DS3617xs or DS916. All in one is easier to maintain than you'd think. The changes between the core files on my rootfs changes very little between the models.
  3. My loader persists across upgrades Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. It is addressed in my loader. 64 is limit in my loader. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  5. My loader is now complete. Just updating post and uploading and it will be available late tonight... To tease a little bit on topic.... There are now 3 different ways to set maxdisks in my loader, from grub bootloader, from grub.cfg or from my configtool. Let's see how it is done. NOTE: Setting maxdisks should only be done after DSM has been installed. This is because DSM can only install it's OS on a maximum of 12 disks (usuall the first 12 disks). This is hard set in the proprietary binaries. You could, however, manually create a 64 raid 1 md0 and md1 volume for
  6. Almost there. Added the changing of maxdrives from the grub bootloader. no longer do you have to figure out binary to hex conversions. Just set your max drives and it does the rest during boot all the way to 64 drives. Just 3 other issues to resolve. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. Not true. your extra.lzma may still be used. I will not be able to keep up on driver uodates like you have . Ihaven't had time to compare my drivers vs yours, but any user could replace my extra.lzma with yours and still get all the benefits of my loader because my ramdisk is always last. drivers, firmwares and /etc/modules.conf will always remain in extra.lzma. anyone can replace those portions as they see fit. Personally, I wanted to rename to drivers.lzma, but for compatability between Juns loadrr and mine I left as extra.lzma. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. What everyone has failed to notice, is that this guy was using xpenoboot 5.2 which uses heavily modded kernel, not the oem one we currently used in 6.x. That being said, I can make this a permanent solution for the few that need it. My loader will be out in a few days and I can certainly add this from the boot menu. What you should know though, is that even with 12+ drives, DSM will only install to the first 12 drives. You can certainly rebuild the software raid to all attached drives, but it is a manual process. My configuration tool, in the next release, allows you to set to 45 drives
  9. You are correct. It is about money and lock in. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. It all depends on the use case. I deduced that test4321 just needed connection from 2 nodes. if it was different, then switches would bw the way to go. Even with ESXi hosts or kvm hypervisors traffic can communicate between each other because switching happens on the hypervisor even with multiple portgroups. Or you can get really complicate with VMware and do VXLans, but that is going into the weeds. I keep my traffic east-west and everything north of my fws. ie workstations/laptops/wifi , live in a 1 Gbe world. everything fw, ids ips and below is 10Gbe and all virtual. Sent from my SM-N
  11. just get the brocade twinax cables and do pc to pc. forget getting a switch unless you got money to spend. also don't use cisco twinax cables with the brocade 1020. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. It will be released in my loader slated to be released tomorrow.
  13. Cheap route: 10Gbe's are the Brocade (QLogic) BR-1020's and it will always be supported by me because it is what I use. Expensive route: Can't go wrong with most Intel cards because they are easily supported, and most already are
  14. I use the cheapest 10Gbe card on the market (got them for $33 bucks ea) with great success, originally the Brocade BR-1020, which then became QLogic BR-1020, and now belongs to Cavium. I have a driver built for it that works great in XPEnology.
  15. The reason why I recommend using as usb image vs making it a vdisk, because you don't have to waste a sata or scsi port, and disk stays hidden as synoboot and not accessible inside DSM.
