  1. What am I missing? This is RAID 5 array with 4x8TB drives. you lose 1 drive worth for protection and the overhead of formats, file system and other guff. You will have roughly 21+TB to play with?
  2. did you remove the "old 1 TB drive" before plugging in 2nd 3TB drive?
  3. Are you attempting to go back to 6.1x or continue to upgrade to 6.2x?
  4. Search is not finding the wi-fi driver list for me, a link or input appreciated.... Cheers MF
  5. - Outcome of the update: UNSUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior to update: DSM 6.2.1-23824 update 6 - Loader version and model: Jun v1.04b - DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASRock J3455-M Additional Notes: Single onboard NIC only (no lights on NIC after attempted update. Tried a fresh install by re-formmating the disks and same result. Installs okay but lights out for onboard NIC
  6. Another failed upgrade attempt and another fall back to 6.1.7....followed the input of SBV3000 1) Disconnect your raid drives 2) Connect spare HDD to SATA port 1 3) Install DSM 6.x from fresh 1.02b loader, create admin user and server name matching live system, DONT create volume/raid. Update DSM to match your pre-beta version 4) Shutdown, reconnect raid drives to SATA ports 2-n 5) Boot, login, repair system partitions on raid, shutdown 6) Remove spare HDD and reconnect raid drives to SATA ports 1-n 7) Boot, repair packages etc However one additional note. I have two volumes, one is Hybrid Raid SHR 5xHDDs and one volume RAID1 BTRFS 2xHDDs. I unplugged all drives and rebuilt only the BTRFS volume, Shutdown plug in remaining 5 HDD and allowed rebuild.
  7. Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 4 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.04b - DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - Asrock J3455 M - Additional comments: reboot required
  8. I inadvertently ended up with 2 working systems both running 6.2.1 (DS 918+) and both with the same serial number. I have searched but can only find info on changing serial numbers for v5 and earlier releases. Any help is appreciated. MF
  9. Thanks for the explanation and quick response. I have a few hours to go with current rebuild before I can rework the "failed partition" Cheers MF
