  1. Check your log messages and it may say you may have file system errors. Find a guide online to unmount and run fix disk.
  2. I just did the same thing you are asking about. I actually migrated from a dual 3tb shr drive setup from DS213 to hp microserver gen8 running esxi 5.5, gnoboot alpha9 and synology 4.3. I took one of the 3tb drives out and stuck a new one, both in RDM mode so synology saw a Degraded volume. I added another 3tb drive and let it parity check for 1.5 days. After that, I added another 3tb drive and it took 4 days to expand volume. After that, I had to click another option to expand volume but it would stop right away. In the logs, there were comments of file system errors so expansion could n
  3. Any progress on making SMART work natively in the synology web page while using RDM in ESXi? I'm trying to get rid of the following error messages in /var/log/messages Mar 5 14:22:00 HPNAS rsrcmonitor2.cgi: smartctl_enable.c:92 AtaSmartEnable failed. Mar 5 14:22:00 HPNAS rsrcmonitor2.cgi: SmartDataRead(107) enable smart /dev/sde fail Mar 5 14:22:00 HPNAS rsrcmonitor2.cgi: disk_temperature_get.c:71 read value /dev/sde fail
  4. Too bad I read this post a little late. I already have my gen8 server running esxi and xpenology with 3 disks running RDM but not using raid0 and using ahci mode. Fans are a little loud at 27%. Is there a way to still use raid0 mode without loosing all the data?
  5. I've learned a lot by installing ESXi 5.5 on a HP GEN8 Microserver with gnoboot alpha5 -> alpha 9 and DSM 4.3. Everything seems to be working with RDM. I took one drive from my old DS213 and plugged it in and DSM recognized it. Took me 2 days to put in a second drive for SHR redundancy. Now i'm expanding the volume with a 3rd 3TB drive and it's going to take another 2 days. I have a last 3TB drive I am planning to put in for maximum capacity Question: I can't find download link for gnoboot-openvmtools-v4. What benefits do I get for installing this? Next, I am going to install pFsen
  6. One last question: I am trying to use gnoBoot but which DSM 4.3 file do I use? Where can I find it? Is it the official one or some hacked one.

  8. Okay, I think I know how to install it now. What about major differences between the two kernels? Can I still use the same PDF guide to set up esxi and RDM with gnoBoot?

  10. I am very interested in this question as well. I have a DS213 that has two drives in it, running SHR so they are basically mirrored. I am planning an ESXI 5.5 install on HP gen8 and running the drives in RDM mode. Can I install synology and then take one drive from the DS213 and map it as RDM and all my data should still be there?

  12. Excuse my ignorance but I have been reading and didn't quite follow the main differences, advantages and disadvantages to one or the other. I am planning an esxi install on a HP Microserver Gen8. Also, is there a good step by step tutorial to an installation using gnoBoot?
