  1. It seems that the built-in encryption is folder level only, and you have encrypt existing folders. I am trying to find a solution where I might be able to encrypt the entire volume or disk, is there anything out there? I searched for encryption in the forum, but for some reason it only returned one hit, and didn't find anything useful via Google either, lots of noise.
  2. just want to make sure and clear that this is to run xpenology baremetal and the virtualbox simultaneously? Will the virtualbox OS be installed on the same usb drive as xpenology drive and use the NAS disks as storage?
  3. The upgrade was pretty smooth, it looks like all of the settings I noticed have been retained, including my hard drive head parking. So far I haven't seen super fast increases in load cycles.
  4. I am currently running DSM 4.2-3211 on my N40L, I am ready to update it to DSM because of all the scares of synolocker. I've been looking at how to do this and want to find out what the most efficient way is currently. Before I move forward, I want to make sure I have an understanding what to do: 1. Of course is backup data. 2. Currently only Nanoboot has DSM 5.0-4493 bootloader. To install, I make a USB drive with the Nanboot DSM 5.0-4493 bootloader to boot (currently v5.0.3.1 x64) 3. Boot into USB. Install DSM 5.0-4493 with sinology assistant and migrate my 6 drives into DSM 5.0 Questions: I have 6 on DSM 4.2-3211 (formatted by DSM 4.2), should I leave all the drives connected? And then use sinology assistant to install DSM 5.0-4493, and will try to migrate the drives in. Additionally, does nanoboot recognize the correct mac address? Does WOL work for N40L out of the box? Finally I had to manually adjust the head parking time to 255 on one my Seagate drives to ensure that there is not an excessive amount of head parking, will I have to do that again? Probably?
  5. There are not many discussions on how important ECC is in a XPEnology/DSM setup, anyone have any comments? I am aware that most recommend ECC for ZFS systems since it's so memory intensive, but XPEnology do not appear nearly as ram heavy.
  6. Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but a M1015 in 9211-IT mode works fine in a microserver N40L. I put one in when I ran 7 drives on a N40L, was able to install and setup up SHR2 hybrid raid. This was not through a VM.

  8. I've read through a number of the posts in this thread and it seems like VT-D Direct I/O works fine with a M1015 in IT mode, and the SMART status gets passed through to DSM is that correct? I have a E3 1240 and appropriate mobo to support a VT-D system and a N40L that is currently running DSM natively, I am deciding whether to migrate over to the E3 1240 and run other VMs on that box or stick with the N40L as a standalone NAS. I am considering because I am getting new drives for a new array and deciding which route to go. Is the ESXI pretty stable with VT-D and DSM VM?
  9. I just wanted to see if anyone might know how the synology system determines to spin the drive backup and if it's controllable. My drives spin down fine at the pre-determined time in the settings, however, once spun down, it sometimes randomly spins backup. I want to see what others' experience has been like on this subject. I have a HP N40L with 6 x 2TB drives, running on DSM 4.2 Trantor 1.2 repack Otherwise it's working well...minus OpenVPN, I've wasted a lot of time trying to get it to work with certificates and haven't had any luck.
  10. how do I give the script executable permissions? Just figured this out: chmod 777 S99ZZZ_Shutdown.sh not familiar with linux, took a little more googling. WOL works now.
  11. Thanks! That worked...Uninstalled cloudstation and everything is back to normal. Eeeks I guess it's a cloudstation issue.
  12. thanks for the help with the du command. It looks like I have 1.4TB in the /@sync/repo folder, any idea what that is for? Can I clear the contents of this folder with out issues?
  13. Any tips on the commands I can use to browse the size of the folders? Been google and haven't found an answer. My knowledge is limited of command line linux. It was amazing that I was able to figure out how to disable the APM on my only Seagate ST2000DM001 in the box using VI. I am at a complete lost how to browse and figure out the directory sizes of each directory, any help appreciated.
  14. This is what is listed when I do df. Any ideas? Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/md0 2451064 540244 1808420 23% / /tmp 4027740 804 4026936 0% /tmp /dev/vg1000/lv 7733653228 3145050256 4588500572 41% /volume1 /dev/sdq1 15522 9436 5285 64% /volumeUSB1/usbshare
  15. I emptied all the recycle bins, there weren't really anything in it, I have a pretty good mix of large and small files, but the majority is probably slightly on the bigger side.
