  1. Yeah, this worked. My array is now in the process of becoming an SHR-2 array. Awesome, thanks a bunch
  2. Thanks, I understand that but are you saying that I should make the array degrade on purpose by removing the 500GB? Then what?
  3. Yeah, data is backed up. Why would the swap from 500GB to 4TB allow me to change to shr-2? It would go from Disk 1: 1.8TB Disk 3: 2.7TB Disk 5: 2.7TB Disk 6: 3.6TB Disk 7: (Not initialized, reserved for upgrade to SHR-2) 3.6TB Disk 8: 3.6TB Disk 9: 2.7TB Disk 10: 466GB to Disk 1: 1.8TB Disk 3: 2.7TB Disk 5: 2.7TB Disk 6: 3.6TB Disk 7: (Not initialized, reserved for upgrade to SHR-2) 3.6TB Disk 8: 3.6TB Disk 9: 2.7TB Disk 10: 3.6TB Still 3 different sizes of drives.
  4. Oh boy. I am out of SATA ports
  5. Disk 1: 1.8TB Disk 3: 2.7TB Disk 5: 2.7TB Disk 6: 3.6TB Disk 7: (Not initialized, reserved for upgrade to SHR-2) 3.6TB Disk 8: 3.6TB Disk 9: 2.7TB Disk 10: 466GB The shitty part is that right after the 6.1 upgrade I 'initialized' Disk 8 which was previously unused as well.
  6. Tried it again. It seems that making that change to synoinfo.conf results in the diskstation wanting to reinstall.
  7. So, I reinstalled but I still don't see the option to 'Change Raid Type'
  8. I guess not. A quick google search found that I need to ssh and then sudo vi and comment out supportraidgroup="yes" and add support_syno_hybrid_raid = "yes". Just did it. Damn, now upon reboot, my DSM is asking to reinstall/migrate. Is this normal? Should I proceed with installing/migrating again?
  9. I have 7 drives in there right now as SHR-1, largest drive is a 4TB and I added a non-initialized 4TB to perform the change to SHR-2.
  10. Hello, does anyone know why I cannot perform 'Change RAID Type' on 6.1.3 update 8? That is the main reason I upgraded. I wanted to go from SHR-1 to SHR-2.
  11. Also, I would like to let everyone know that the migration went flawlessly. I even let it auto-update to update 6.1.3 update 8 and it's all good so far. Thanks to the OP for the great tutorial.
  12. I would like to thank sbv3000, using his advise, I will changed the PID/VID in the grub config file and made the rest of the changes at the grub console and the install proceeded fine.
  13. Sorry, just to clarify, are you saying that editing the s/n and mac BEFORE the install (hitting 'c' right after it boots) is the way to go? Like, don't let it boot with the default settings? If that's what you mean, it is weird that it works that way.
  14. Thanks, I will give it a shot
  15. Hi guys, I have a problem, I am trying to update an existing 5.2 system. I unplugged all the existing drives and just plugged in a spare drive just to test the hardware. I followed the guide with the VID/PID and MAC address changes. I booted from USB fine, used the browser to update the .pat (using DSM_DS3615xs_15152.pat) and it uploads it and then at around 56% progress a red 'Unknown exception' message' shows up and installation halts. The MB is a ECS NM70-I2 (V1.0) Intel Celeron 1037U 1.80GHz Intel NM70 I have an extra SATA Controller (IO Crest 4 Port SATA III PCI-e 2.0 x1 Controller Card Marvell Non-Raid with Low Profile Bracket SI-PEX40064) plugged in and I saw that a user said it worked out of the box for them. Any ideas on how to proceed? Thanks in advance.
