    HP N54L - beeping with 8TB Ironwolf

    Thanks for the reply. Earlier today I took the hard drive back out of the N54L and connected it to my PC. So I have worked in IT for over nearly 20 years and played around with PC for over 20 years and I've never seen this, but it turns out the beeping noise from the video is actually the Ironwolf drive beeping. The drive also does not appear in Disk Management so I believe you are right, it's DOA. Starting an RMA with eBuyer now. :(
  2. Had this server running quite well for a number of years but I have been getting ever closer to the storage limit. Purchased a brand new 8TB Ironwolf drive to replace one of the 3TB drives so I shut the server down and replaced the drive (something I’ve done several times before). But when I boot it up there is a regular beep coming from the system and it doesn’t detect the drive. After a while DSM loads and confirms it cannot see the drive as well as the current volume being degraded. Here’s a video of the beep. I assume it’s a hardware limit of the device and it doesn’t like the larger drive. The official spec says 2TB max but I have been running 3 and 4TB for a while without a problem. Any ideas?

    Upgrading N54L from 5.0 > 5.2

    Thanks. Could you tell me more about the SSD upgrade please? What spec were the drives you used? Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thank you. Backing up the data will be tricky. I don't have anywhere to store it all, except my NAS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Upgrading N54L from 5.0 > 5.2

    Thanks. My box is connected to the internet and it is always on, it never get's turned off. Can I just confirm the upgrade procedure? Remove the USB thumb drive (Do I need to power down the box first?) Install latest boot image (I found XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5565.1.img but is there a later one then?) Insert USB and reboot box Hit Install/Upgrade in boot menu. Once complete download 5.2-5967 (where from? Synology?) Install DSM.

    Upgrading N54L from 5.0 > 5.2

    Hello, I've been happily using my HP MicroServer N54L for a few years now, only upgrading the HDDs along the way for more capacity. Everything is currently working perfectly for what I need. I was looking at adding Surveillance Station yesterday using a keygen and noticed there there is a new version of DSM available. My box currently runs 5.0-4528 and the latest version I can see is 5.2-5565. The upgrade looks pretty straight forward but I'm wondering if I should bother? My box works fine and I don't want to risk breaking anything if it all goes wrong. Thoughts please?
