    If you're array is ok why not swap the 500gb disk for a 4tb, let the array rebuild then change to shr-2. I'm assuming that you have backups  of all your important files while you're doing this of course.

    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

    Still 3 different sizes of drives.

    From Synology website:

     

    SHR-1 with the following disk configurations may require two additional disks when changing to SHR-2:

    There are only two disks.

    All disks have different capacities.

    Three or more disks in the RAID Array contain a pair of higher-capacity disks compared to the other disks in the RAID Array.

     

    what disk configuration do you have?

    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.

    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?

    So, I reinstalled but I still don't see the option to 'Change Raid Type'

    And do you have SHR enabled in synoinfo.conf?  It will certainly "import" existing SHR volumes, but I am not sure you can make any changes without it enabled.

    I had the '56%' issue a few times and found that if I edited the vid/pid for my usb but left the MAC and S/N as the 'default' in the grub, DSM installed ok . After reboot and checking I changed the MAC to the machines NIC (plus S/N to a non-Syno random string) and it worked ok.

    I have no idea why this worked, on some installs, editing the MAC before install didn't cause the error.

    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.

    Thanks, I will give it a shot

  7. 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.

  8. Last time I updated was to DSM_DS3615xs_5644 with all the updates up to synology_bromolow_3615xs upd5.

     

    The reason I want to upgrade is to go from 1 drive replication to 2 drive replication. Otherwise, I would leave it alone.

    My question is, which tutorial and set of files/loaders, etc is current and applicable to my current set up?

     

    Thanks

  9. Hello,

     

    since WOL has not worked for me out-of-the box, I decided to create this thread where we can share experience on this topic.

     

    For some reason activating WOL over the GUI (Control Panel|Hardware) fails and does not have any effect. If WOL is supported by your HW configuration this is how you should get it running (DSM4.2):

     

    Prerequisite:

    • Find out the real MAC address of your Ethernet adapter (not the faked one by xpenology!) e.g. by booting linux/win form liveCD

    • Enable WOL options corresponding to your HW in BIOS

     

    1. Activate the WOL setting on your Ethernet adapter:

    a. Enable SSH service (Control Panel|Terminal) and login (e.g. via putty) as root with admin password

    b. Run following command: “ethtool -s eth0 wol g” (assumed eth0 is your Ethernet adapter)

    2. Power off your system as usual

    3. Now wake-up your system by sending a WOL magic packet using the REAL MAC address of your Ethernet adapter. There are many tools over internet which can do this; such a functionality is integrated in some router’s FW (e.g. dd-wrt)

     

    Your system should boot up normally -this worked for me on two different systems. Now I am searching for a good way how to persist this setting in synology.

    As a work-around you can set up a task (executing the above command) with DSM 4.2’s integrated Task Scheduler or via the 3rd party “Cronjob Editor” which is periodically executed once the system has booted.

     

    Have fun!

    I got this when I tried ethtool -s eth0 wol g

     

    "Cannot get current wake-on-lan settings: Operation not permitted

    not setting wol"

  10. Undecided -- That motherboard and CPU combo looks like a very good value. Do all of the features (including WOL) work well with XPEnology 4.2? Also, what case and power supply did you use for your build? Thanks in advance.

     

    I haven't been able to get WOL to work. Someone told me to try this:

     

    viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1028&start=260#p6660

     

    But I have not had a chance yet.

     

    I did use a hex editor to fix the MAC Address.

    I also used the scheduler and the NAS shuts itself off and turns itself back on just fine.

     

    I added a Syba mini pci-express SATA 3 card so now I have 6 sata ports. I also added a 4-port USB3.0 pciexpress card so now I have usb 3.0 ports as well but I have not had a need for them yet.

     

    I don't even need the 6 SATA ports yet, I have 4 disks in there.

     

    The case I used is an old Lian Li I've had for a while now

    Takes standard ATX PSU but I did not trust the PSU I had so I used a thermatake 180w FlexAtx PSU I had lying around.
