  1. Not entirely sure what you want to do... Depends on what you want to run on the HTPC - ie what is not running on xpenology? You will have limited pass through capability, not usre how well audio/video/tv cards can be passed on to a client vm - you'll have to look that up if thats ur intention
  2. Festplatte formatieren bzw Partitionen entfernen ? "Formatierung der Datenpartition wird übersprungen" Ist wohl nicht der normale Zustrand für eine Erst-Installation, oder?
  3. Honestly, your hardware is way over-spec'd for XPE. Depending on your requirements you can run ESXi wih an XPE vm and still have lots to spare. Or, if you have critical data (familiy photos, work data whatever) on it then consider ZFS based tech again (is that ECC RAM?). Those are not *so* complicated to setup except maybe the apps as those are possibly not drag&drop style but its not really rocket science either. I am running FreeNas with an XPE VM on top currently for example. ---- Some antswers nevertheless;) -- What "Apps" should I install to serve the XBMC? -- I
  4. Oh my, 112 views and no one answers:( So long story short: -ESX - more flexibility, more (and possibly special) hardware required, option to run other servers/services on the same machine; Unsecure (reliability wise) unless you pass through drives. Can use vms to try different settings, layouts, configs -Usb or any other bare metal installation - (way) less hardware requirements, reuse or buy cheap; singular utilization of the hardware, no overhead. I'd recommend going bare metal unless you are willing to read a lot;) and need multiple services XPE cant provide Edit:
  5. Can you ping it while its not reacting? SSH to it? What does the log say? Temperature ok?
  6. So i've run e2fsck on the volumes and the raid is now clean - unfortunatly this does not resolve the problem. I know that syno support can remote log in to the machine and fix this - but thats not an option here;) But that means that the capabillity should be there - just the know how is missing...
  7. So i've imported my old disks into a new installation and for some reasons it didnt pick up all 5 disks of my raid 5 set, only 4 attached to one bus of my LSI SAS HBA. It imported that volume (4 out of 5 disk) and it worked fine for a littele while, but by now i have 2 disks crashed and the other 2 are at partioning failed state. I am able to access the volume/disks (most of the data is intact) but am not able to repair it via GUI. I tried reinstalling and migrating without success, moving to my old physical syno box (cant due to newer version, old one only supports dsm4)... Whil
  8. Ah sorry - edited inline before, just saw your message;) Found it.
  9. Hm probably some stupid mistake but its not working for me - "Partition layout is not Diskstation style" Edit: Ok, its due to the LSI adapter (and its set of old installation disks) - without i was able to install properly, attaching afterwards works
  10. Hm ok that might be it. Unfortunatly removing the bridge would render the NAS inaccessible so thats not a real solution
  11. Ok, stupid indeed;) SAS connector was not seated properly Sorry. Next interesting issue is that XPE is not able to restore a Raid spanning two channels - leaving me in quite a bad position with my old 5 disk raid 5
  12. Is anyone else experiencing 100% CPU usage on /usr/syno/sbin/nmbd -D? This instance on XPE is running 4458-Update2 being vritualized on an i3-4130 (FreeBSD->VirtualBox->XPE) and is completely hogging once cpu core without doing anything at all. I've searched around and it seems to happen to a few ppl on real synology systems as well but given the impact its fairly low amount of complaints so i wondered if it's just bad luck or whether i missed something... Thanks
  13. Hey guys, been out of the loop for a while and am now trying to get up an ESXi based XPE setup... I've installed it using gnoboot 10.3 and DSM 4458; upgraded to gnoboot 10.5 afterwards but still have the issue taht the disks on my HBA do not get found. So i am running an SAS GBA in passthrough mode (LSI 2008) - that one is reckognized as per dmesg 2.592852] mpt2sas0: LSISAS2008: FWVersion(, ChipRevision(0x03), BiosVersion( [ 2.592860] mpt2sas0: Dell 6Gbps SAS HBA: Vendor(0x1000), Device(0x0072), SSVID(0x1028), SSDID(0x1F1C) [ 2.592864] mpt2sas0: Pr
  14. Excellent, that works © (used http://codepad.org), thanks guys. Turns out its a network issue after all, Bridged Networking seems to have an issue. Very misleading error though - and an Enhancement request: put the IP right there before the root prompt;)
  15. Ah in fact I *am* using alpha 10.5; sorry i called it alpha7 since that was the latest version from trantor i believer which i tried before. I d'led today using the latest link so i am up to date. Root PW - tried but didnt work for me either
  16. Hm SynoAsisst couldnt find the device thats why i looked in the first place;) Is the root pw for this stage known? I've seen quite a lot of failed boot messages but i dont know what they where, maybe normal, maybe not. Tried using the debug boot but that hung after the logo.
  17. So i am trying to run gnoBoot (latest Alpha 7) on VirtualBox but i cant get it to run. I created a vdi image from the latest vfat (via convertdd) and it boots fine, up until when it starts the daemons ... I tried various settings in VBox but all end up the same... Any idea how to fix this? Thx
  18. Option 1 - run putty with pre configured password and a command to execute - then you just need to hammer your syno untill sshd is up (run a batch script if necessary). 2/3 - yes you should be able to access the partition iirc
  19. Well, /usr/syno/bin/synodiskport -iscsi enumerates the iscsi drives; I've tried modifying calls to /usr/syno/bin/synodiskport -sata (eg. in install.sh) to enumerate all sata/sas/iscsi drives; I have even gotten a proper fd (autoraid) partition on it (synopart), but i cant get neither LSI based sata nor sas nor iscsi drives to be reckognized
  20. Also ich hab jetzt mal den umständlichen Weg probiert... Also Napp-it (iscsi export) -> ESXi ISCSI Datastore -> XPE VM (mit SAS/PV HDD auf den iscsi datastore), also kein RDM sondern als Disk (=flexibel, kann man einfach woanders reinhängen, aber schlecht für externes Backup weil Syno mit Thin Provisioning nicht zurechkommt und die ganze Größe nimmt). Hab jetzt zum Test 2 iscsi basierte Platten drin, beide als Basic Volume in Syno, beide völlig ok und sauber getrennte Volumes. Getestet habe ich das mal mit einer einzelnen SSD -> keine Performanceverluste durch die Layers
  21. Ja richtig, schaue gerade nach einem SS-400L2U;) Alternativ ein einzelnes PWS-501P-1R wenn ich es finde und es preislich gleich bleibt;) ATX bekomme ich nur mit offenem Case rein - und so wirklich besser sind die auch nicht ... zumindestens habe ich kein effizienteres 300W gefunden... das 7750er ist nur besser als das original NT vom Server - das hatte schon selbst 20W idle, das andere hat 3.5W (also beides nach poweroff)... W2k8 mit Energieeinstellung niedrig - auch 35W wie ESX - muss ich mal suchen was man noch machen kann. Mal die W2k12 Trial suchen... Edit: Sodele mal W2k12R
  22. Und zum Originalproblem: Ich bekomme es nicht hin; kann zwar hin und her partitionieren und auch selbst raids anlegen aber in die Gui bekomme ich weder meine SATA/SAS Platten noch die iscsi ... Alternativ bleibt natürlich immer noch aus NappIT das iscsi drive an ESX/Win zu übergeben und dann als RDM oder virtuelle Platte an die XPE VM zu übergeben - ist halt ein Layer mehr ...
  23. Ich schaue mal... teste das Ganze gerade mal mit Idle Intel S1200RSP, E3 1230v3, 16G ECC (1,35) Seasonic 750 Watt (Silber) 1x eSata, 1xUSB Pendrive , 1x1000T Seagate 3.5 (zw 5 und 8W) ESX 35W idle (direkt nach dem boot ohne wartezeit aber in Wartungsmodus) W2k8 (+1 alte SSD) 40 Watt - muss ich erstmal treiber updates laufen lassen und Energieeinstellung auf minimal setzen;) 1x IBM Br10i (LSI 1060e) + Perc H310 (LSI 2008) => +15W
  24. Same issue with 1.2. Seems to be usb related as there is some USB-xhci process being RIP'ed...
  25. Does anyone know where the sources for the different (compiled) cgi scripts are located? I am trying to find out how the disks/volumes are managed and am not getting any further from the cli commands alone; so i was trying to do a top down aproach; unfortunately i cant find the source for the cgi scripts... Are those not included in the source code (and where do they come from then)? Thx
