  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Attempting to shuffle drives around in order to get more capacity I decommissioned a 4TB hdd from a 1 drive pool (no data loss as there was no data in pool) and a second drive from a populated Vol Pool. I pulled the 2 drives (and also removed a 2port SATA card). I replaced one of the drives with a higher capacity drives and powered system on. Took a long time to boot. I was expecting, and received a Vol Degraded message, however I also received a System Partition Failed for a different drive. System is currently rebuilding with the newly added drive but I am not sure what effect the failed system partition is or will have. The drive itself appears to be okay but I wont know until I finish the 1st task. All the data on the Pool is still intact and nothing else appears impacted. I'm not sure if I have question but has anybody else had a system partition failure? system: Baremetal ASrock J3455 DS918+ DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 4.
  5. Use the real MAC address from the NIC or MB you are installing on
  6. Sure....perhaps you should stay awhile and take a look around

    Adding SSD cache

    I have tried NVMe with adapter https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F9RBP5W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 in PCIe slot with 512GB stick. Only works in DS918+ config and is only read only cache as there is one stick of storage. BTW you can certainly use more than 8 drives in the DS918+
  10. for transcoding 8700 will work fine but my POV is from power consumption and power on hours. I run my server 24*7 and low power (given $ per kw/h that I pay) is important to me. Maybe not to you so plan accordingly. Ryzen is AMD (Duh) and has it's own requirements but I believe Juno's splendid efforts have counted for that.
  11. If you are streaming and not transcoding the 8700 is overkill. I run an ASrock AD2550R Atom dual Core. Hardly breaks a sweat streaming to Samsung (smart tv).
