  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 not occur. I read some tutorial to log into the shell and run fsck.ext4 and after a reboot, I could expand the volume. Good luck!
  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 pFsense and configure some VLAN networking on the ESXi host...
  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?
