    DSM 6.2 Loader

    native on-board SATA?

    6.2 isn't very old at all, I wouldn't worry much.. I'm sure it's being hashed out as we type this.

    I see there are successful 6.2.1 updates in the updates reporting thread but unfortunately not many post their hardware configuration and its not required to fill that info out so it doesn't help the community much. Is there a list of what the "officially supported" kernel hardware is? So far it looks like Intel chipset NICs "all?"

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    has anyone here tested or run XPE on a QNAP "atom powered" NAS

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Yes we are. This is a topic for Jun's loader, let it be for 6.0.2 or 6.1 - your question however is totally off topic and should be in a separate thread. Don't try to play smart. I didn't specifically mention XPEnology DSM in my question, but since I posted it here in this thread I'mm sure most would assume that is what i was talking about seeing how there is a vmdx for Jun's loader.. tell me how it wasn't relevant to the discussion? This is honestly the first place I've seen mentioned about running a NAS inside a VM.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Why not open a new thread? This is a forum and not a chatboard. Once again the question: are there any Mods around here? Are we really going there with the semantics? The terms message board and forum are pretty much used interchangeably ever since the dawn of internet. Since we are talking about mainly DSM 6.1 in the thread labeled 6.0.2, a new thread should have been started weeks ago.

    There are some brave souls here willing to run a NAS as a VM.. Do the benefits really out weigh the risks?

    besides bragging rights that 3617 > 3615, from everything I've read 3615 doesn't limit usable hardware in any way "quad core cpu, more mem etc" most likely the available ad-on Synology packages may differ from the detected hardware version. Someone correct me if I am wrong here.

    so non-intel CPU / NIC = hit-or-miss bare-metal 6.1 NAS it appears. performance wise I'm not sure who would deviate from this anyway

    So you have 2x HDD and 2x SSD correct? Why not use all 4 onboard SATA ports?

    BTRFS + Compression "LZO" is practically a win-win except for a small number of cases. Take a quick look at this test from years ago http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=a ... 2638&num=2

    Does this mean someone such as myself only using the first two onboard SATA ports should set SataPortMap to 2? I notice when I fist went to install it I had ports 3-6 disabled in the bios and it complained that there was a problem with drives 3,4,5,6. So I just re-enabled all the extra on-board SATA ports and it was happy. It looks funny in the drive map to have 1-2 "onboard SATA" and 7-11 "LSI ports" active

    so far so good with my transition/upgrade from NAS4Free to XPEnolgy 6.1 "3615" on my E3-1220v3/16GB. I added an extra drive for a total of 5x 4TB, two 120GB SSDs instead of previous 1x 60GB, and an LSI 9211 IT mode without bios. Idle before was ~48 watts, with the extra hardware its gone up only 14 watts.

    Working DSM 6

    I'm pretty thrilled that I found this project recently since I've become used to the features and interface of Synology NAS boxes after starting my new job. I have a few questions though for any of the long-time XPEnology users. For home use I'm currently running a 4x4TB NAS4Free RaidZ2 on a small E3-1220v3 / 16GB Ram NAS. Its been working okay for a couple years but thought about expanding to a little large case with another 2 drives. Since I will have to move the data off to upgrade the array anyway I thought about switching to XPEnology. The btrfs with LZO compression seems to be pretty close to the LZ4 in ZFS that I have enabled so that is a plus. I am using a 64GB SSD for an L2ARC "Read" cache but the prospect of also upgrading to a couple 120GB or larger SSDs for read/write cache also seems like a bonus. Has anyone transitioned recently from another NAS OS and has any input on switching? Thanks
