  1. Hello @all, i'm currently using xpenology on several "small" devices (16 drives) (sc836 & dsn-3200 chassis) and one legit DSN-1812+. Currently I'm re-planning my backup strategy and will use in future LTO6 or 7 to do an real backup. After I have the full backup, I would like to migrate all 3 storages into one large system containing 36+ (maybe 48) drives. Then I could "reuse" my current sas3 hba and saß expanders as well as all my CPU's and RAM and HDDs. So my questions would be: - what is the max amount of HDDs supported by xpenology dsm - which chassis with hitswap sas backplane could you recommend? Thank you in advance.. BR Snoopy78

    Setting up 24 Bay Supermicro

    running similar setup as yours... #1 main system X9SRL-F Xeon E5 CPU 32GB Ram 10G NIC SAS3 HBA 17x HDD (9x 8 TB, 6x 4 TB HDDs + 2 SSDs) => DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 11, runnig stable all Volumes (Raid Groups) are consisting of max 4 HDDs (in case the system/volume fails in this way i can more easy recover it) Most tricky part was to modify the synoinfo.conf to get all HDDs up and running... #2 backup/toy/whatever system X8SIL-F Xeon ? CPU 8GB Ram 10G NIC SAS2 HBA => DSM 6.1.5-15254 12x HDD (mainly 2TB, 3TB and 4 TB HDDs) when you go from scratch (without any data) you can use the latest DSM....it's just tricky too to get the synoinfo.conf correct... so, if you start from scratch, you could jump to the latest version, otherwise i also recommend to stick at 5.x or 6.0.2... from my experience

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    after an mayor update it usually is overwritten so yes, with a volume 10+ hdd's it will be a pain in the ass... usually u only need to change the values back and then recheck ur volumes...but it'll take some time..and of course there CAN be data loss... that's why all my volumes consist of max. 4 HDDs in Raid 5...it's more epensive..but less complicated.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    if you modify your synoinfo.conf you also can have more than the 12 hdd's internally... DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 9 but also works for DSM 6.1 (tested on my new backup system) just check the forum about how to do so..

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    i just did a quick test with my current toy baremetal system and got Jun's DS3617xs "DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02-alpha" working. Had to use "force install" but so far for an alpha it's fine.

    XPEnology Configuration Tool & Bootloader DSM 6.0.2-8451

    i don't use SataPortMap since afaik i only can address 10 devices on each controller (except 1st one with the values 0-9) so in my setup where my 1st onboard controller has 8 sata (where i only use 2 of them) and my lsi has 16 it should be something like 216 but from what i did read it would be recognized as 2 on 1st controller, 1 on 2nd and 6 ont 3rd...

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    just one question... curtrently i toy around with my new xpe baremetal system and used jun's 1.01 loader it seems everything is fine, but i can't create brtfs volumes....isn't it expected to work in this loader? i tried - single disk with EXT4 ok - single disk with BRTFS NOK - Diskgroup with EXT4 ok - Diskgroup with BRTFS NOK my HBA is a LSI 9301-16i any suggestions? Update.. solved it by complete fresh install of DSM... stick to "new" raid-groups maybe in next DSM version no support of SHR at all anymore...just to "stay" safe

    XPEnology Configuration Tool & Bootloader DSM 6.0.2-8451

    just an other quesion.. on my mobo i have 6 SATA ports, where i only use 2 (SATA3) of them while i use 16 ports on my HBA which is the 2nd controller When reading about "SataPortMap=xxx" then the example "SataPortMap=444" would mean 4 Ports on Controller 1, 4 Ports on Controller 2 and 4 Ports on Controller 3. So in my case i would stupidly write "SataPortMap=216" which acutally should have an different meaning (2x Contrl. 1, 1x Contrl. 2 & 6x Contrl. 3). Is my understanding correct? How would i remap correctly? Thank you & BR

    if u try brtfs volumes with version 2.2 it surely will crash... try ext4 or wait for 2.3/2.4 Gesendet von meinem SM-G925F mit Tapatalk

    XPEnology Configuration Tool & Bootloader DSM 6.0.2-8451

    tried this too, but always get a checksum error, any way to solve it? PID & VID are correct and system is installed, however brtfs volume (created under june's loader) is crashed (as expected, since brfs should run wir 2.3 first) additionally i modified my bios, so that my console (COM1) is redirected to SoL (Serial over LAN), i can see in console then the boot up to the point where i choose the options, afterwards it's blank. any suggestions/tips?
