  1. - Outcome of the installation/update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: Fresh install of DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 4 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.04b - 918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - Asrock J3455M - Additional comments: 9 x 8TB (Raid 5) x3 of IO Crest 4 Port SATA III PCI-e 2.0 x1 Controller Card Marvell Non-Raid with Low Profile Bracket SI-PEX40064 Onboard LAN No other amendments made QuickConnect service tested and not working (perhaps due to carry over S/N and MAC used from previous DSM 6.0.1 Baremetal installation)
  2. Hi again!! Thank you for being patient with me but holy mother of goat... I am STILL backing up 40TB worth of data. I've learned that gSuite drive has an upload limit of 750MB/day. I'm currently left with another 6TB worth of data to upload.. Truly apologise but I can't do anything about that upload limit and it's irritating when I discovered that considering I've 1Gb/s up and down speed.. I will definitely update here again.
  3. Good day, mate! Well... I'm sorry for not following up here but I've been surged with a number of tasks since then (New year, new KPI). But here's the thing, it had just occurred to me that I have an active domain with which I can sub for a Gsuite business account for the unlimited storage limit. From there, I'll back up my whole 40TB of data and do the update worry-free! As of now, I've yet to do so. My apologies...
  4. Alright... Thank you so much! I will mull over it for a few days and will decide if I should just go ahead with the change from DS3615xs to DS916+ for the DSM 6.1.4..... *gulps* Or just stick with DS3615xs for the upgrade. Will report back my decision and if it goes smoothly....
  5. Hmm... I think i'm all fine in this aspect as i did deploy my Google-fu and came across threads of users who have similar board as mind (AsRock N3150 ITX) installed DSM 6.1.4 with nil issues. Keeping my fingers crossed still though as we all know that the universe can throw a curveball in our way. LoL! I read about this too but I couldn't find any actual evidence if this works for a RAID 5 volume.. Do you happen to have any experience in any way? Same here! High five! Problem is, my data is much too big and therefore not feasible to have them backed up, prior to a clean installation. I'll mull over it for a bit to see if I would wanna take the risk and go ahead. Having said that, I think i had started on the wrong foot: I believe you had meant to refer the "loader" as the image (DS3615xs, DX3617xs, DS916+) instead of the loader (v1.02b), right? Coz the guide on the other thread mentioned just utilising loader 1.02b from v1.02a, right? Apologies for the many questions as I'm seeking to clarify certain points prior to making my decision; I believe my points are all valid, in the sense that it has not been mentioned elsewhere so far, I hope. Truly sorry if this isn't so...
  6. Good day, Polanski and fellow Xpeno users! I'm currently wanting to update my Baremetal Xpenology to the latest (and greatest DSM 6.1.4) but i've a few concerns. 1) On the first page of this guide, you mentioned the following: On clicking it, it jumps to post #2 (which i believe is as intended) listing the steps required to update BUT the post actually states DSM 6.1.3. Would that just means that instead of preparing PAT 6.1.3, i prepare PAT 6.1.4 and proceed as per listed guide? 2) In the event if the upgrade fails for whatsoever reason, simply plugging in the old USB which contains my current DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 11, will bring me back to day 1 as per normal with data intact? -a) my data is roughly about 22TB in total and therefore i'm concerned about losing them. 3) As i'm currently on Jun's Loader 1.0.2a and DS3615xs, and your guide states to utilise Loader 1.02b, -a) may I change to DS3617xs or i would still need to stick to DS3617xs? -b) or, may i choose instead DS916+ since I'm on the AsRock N3150 itx mobo (Braswell, i believe)?
  7. Oh... Ok, i get it! Different chipset, hence the difference! Thank you for the clarification!
  8. All periferials plug in pcie port. The difference is in the number of ports required. For example, a médium graphic card required 8 And better 16 or more. This slot is "1 mpcie x1" This means : 1 -> standard review. in this case arround 2.5 GT/s duplex (you can plug 2 sata3 adaptors but the Max transfer rate be same 1 sata2 ) m-> mini form factor x1-> number of lanes The standard pcie slot in the board is 3 pcie x1 i thing. You can plug 2 SATA3. Or 4 but the Max transfer is 1GB/s same 2 sata3 (a litle bit minus) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA My english is painful No worries about your english. I read them slowly and understood! Anyway, i guess it would be best then that I cap it at running 2 HDD off it. But then again, on another thread for the AsRock Q1900-ITX, it seems that utilizing the mPCIe slot would disable 2 out of 4 onboard SATA ports. "http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3380&start=560#p97595" I suppose it's not worth exploring it anymore unless someone who actually have attached 2 HDD off the mPCIe slot without any negative effect such as the above. Looks like i would be needing to sell off my 8x 3TB WD Reds and upgrade to 8x 8TB WD Reds instead. LoL!
  9. Erm... I don't think a network port is similar to a SATA port?
  10. This slot is a pcie 1x spec. Non for nand. But the good news is. that is a 1x mini pcie half sice[emoji5] . You can push 2 sata 6. Or 2 usb3 . Or a giganet card. And offcourse a wifi ac And alwais a USB 2 Enviado desde mi Aquaris X5 Plus mediante Tapatalk Hmmmm............ This has got me VERY interested as I have this exact same motherboard (AsRock N3150-ITX). Has anyone tested this? I.e. has anyone tried plugging in a Half-size Mini Pcie to PCIe adapter, and then a suitable SATA card successfully and get it to work (attached to another 1 or 2 HDD off the SATA card)? EDIT: Or maybe, an IOCrest / Syba Mini PCI-Express Half Size 2 Port SATA III RAID Controller SI-MPE40095 with 2 SATA HDD attached and working?
  11. Hi, I'm just curious, is your SYBA/IOCrest card model SE9235 or SE9215? From my understanding, your ASRock j1900 mobo only has PCIE2.0 x1, which should only be compatible with SE9215 because SE9235 is PCIE2.0 x2? Having said that, I believe you would need the SYBA/IOCrest SE9215. I'm using it with no issues.. on DSM 5.2 still though, if that matters.
  12. So... hibernation and power management setting all ok? I'm on bare metal 5644.5 and not sure whether i should update to 5967.1..
  13. Uh oh... Link's dead. Able to re-upload please?
  14. Thank you for all your advices, redpineapple and brantje! I've finalized my build and will order the stuffs asap! @brantje: Yep! That's the most definite air cooler to go for if I do go for non-SoC board!
  15. Thank you redpineapple! The deciding factor was understanding that PCI-e x1 vs x4 vs x8 bandwidth topic. I understand much better by how the respective bandwidth will affect me in the long run. I've revised my build as follows: MB (SoC) - Asrock QC-5000ITX/PH http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q5ZEOCO/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=V6RL85LWPIOB&coliid=I3M2H6D21IEJRU RAM - 2x8gb RAM Crucial Ballistic Sport http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006YG9EEW/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=V6RL85LWPIOB&coliid=I2NOCHIH9BW0I&psc=1 or, RAM - 1x16gb RAM Crucial? It's slightly cheaper and i suppose single channel would mean lower power but will it affect speed in anyway? http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-PC3-12800-Non-ECC-CT2KIT102464BA160B-CT2CP102464BA160B/dp/B00AZGZFF4/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1461598717&sr=1-3&keywords=16gb+ddr3 PSU: SilverStone 300W SFX http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FA4KP8S/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=V6RL85LWPIOB&coliid=I320VXILN6OUEL&psc=1 HDD: 2x WD Red 3TB (as add ons to my current 2x WD Red 3TB) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008JJLW4M/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=V6RL85LWPIOB&coliid=I2CNCLWDZUX3EC&psc=1 Future upgrade: PCI-e: LSI-9211-8i SAS (for ability to expand up to 8 HDD) Case: DS380 or NSC-800 Mooaar!! HDD!
  16. Hmm.... A lot of pointers for me to reconsider my build... My intention was basically to "upgrade" my current Asustor 202TE to something slightly more powerful with capacity of 8 drives. @brantje: Actually, i'm not sure. I'm using my current Asustor 202TE as storage, torrenting, and also as a PMS (although I've set it NOT to do any transcoding even for remote access/viewing). Not sure if it would matter in relation to speed factor? @redpineapple: Ok..................... Now you REALLY have got me thinking REALLY hard... Ok guys, know what? Let's just "build" one for me, if you don't mind.. I'm looking for as low power consumption as possible although I would definitely put it to "sleep" mode when i'm not using it and I'll wake it up via WoL when needed. Also, it'll have 4x WD Red 3TB for a start, with expansion to a total of 8 drives over time. An alternative that I've looked at although I'm not too sure if it's worth it: CPU: i3-6100 MoBo: (?) Mini-ITX PSU: SilverStone 300W PSU RAM: 1x4gb Kingston 1600mhz DDR3L PCI-E: LSI 9211? Case: NSC-800 Or just go with a similar build as yours(best bang for buck for my usage?) + a separate HTPC for my PMS?
  17. Thank you so much abced and redpineapple! @abced: So you're saying that I'm good to go? There's not a need for an SAS card? @redpineapple: I came across that SoC mobo but figured that a newer N3150 would be better, with lower TDP. I remembered reading up regarding sore concerns of using a SATA card and it states that there would not be any issue as there are sufficient bandwidth: 3gb/s. Is not correct? All in all, you're both saying that the backplane of both the DS380 and the NSC-800 allows for hot swapping right?
  18. Dear all, As i've finally "grown out" of my current Asustor 202TE, I'm planning to build an up to 8-bay XPEnology NAS . Below are my intended specs, followed by some of my concerns, which I require your advices please: MB (SoC) - Asrock N3150-ITX http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YF9T1SY/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=V6RL85LWPIOB&coliid=I39ICBG5D44Y47 RAM - 1x4gb Kingston 1600mhz DDR3L http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YF9T1SY/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=V6RL85LWPIOB&coliid=I39ICBG5D44Y47 PSU: SilverStone 300W SFX http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FA4KP8S/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=V6RL85LWPIOB&coliid=I320VXILN6OUEL&psc=1 PCI-e: IO Crest 4 Port PCI-e 2.0 x1 Controller Card (for ability to expand up to 8 HDD) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AZ9T3OU/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=V6RL85LWPIOB&coliid=I37YF45AKYJRV0&psc=1 Case: SilverStone DS380 http://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-Technology-Mini-ITX-Computer-DS380B/dp/B00IAELTAI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1461427496&sr=8-1&keywords=ds380 My concerns are, 1) the above hardwares, alright? Yes, i will be booting off a thumbdrive. 2) Seeing that the DS380 case allows hot-swapping, would i be able to do so, with the above hardwares? I'm suspecting not as I would need an SAS? Thanks in advance for your time and feedbacks..
