  1. Hi, Im a noob at PCI-E SAS/SATA expander cards. When looking at the good ones from LSI in this list: http://xpenology.me/compatible/ there is very few options. I can only buy those LSI cards in that list or will other work as well? I need something that has some internal and some external ports, not just 8internal or so like in the list. Is it possible to request this for a specific card I might buy here? For DS918+ DSM 6.2.1 (latest) Thanks and sorry if post is wrong..
  2. Hi, I have a custom built XPEnology with the latest version of everything: DS918+ , loader 1.04b, DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 1 Im planning to buy a PCI-e card for extending with 4 Sata6 ports to be able to put 2 HDD's and 2 SSD's more in my RAID system (or maybe the SSD's for cache). My motherboard is already maxed out on sata connections. So what cards will actually work with drivers and whatnot..? can you recommend some good cards with good reliability? I have no own experience with these cards and have no idea what to look for. Thanks!

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Thank you! Now Ive looked around for the tutorials as it was a long time ago I did this first time. I really can not find a good tutorial for a fresh install of this version DSM and 918+. Do you know what tutorial i should follow? thanks EDIT: I guess I can just follow the Tutorial: Install/Migrate DSM 5.2 to 6.1.x (Jun's loader) But use load 1.04b and download the latest DSM from synology website. However I dont know how to get serial number for 918+

    Hi, Im trying this software to try update to 6.2.1-23824-1 with DS918+ But I cant find the serial generator for DS918+ only DS916+ ? Its not supported or its the same?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Hi! Thanks so much for answering. Im right now in the process of doing this so I just sat by the laptop for 20mins waiting for your answer Thanks! It is enough for me to just unplug my 3 drives I have right now in a RAID-5 config, and it will be untouched by any errors that might occur right..? And if everything goes successfull I can just ******* down the NAS and plug them in again and it is ready to go with my old volume working? If unsuccessful I can just put the old USB back with the loader etc that Im running right now and plug the disks back and its back to this state at the moment..? Edit: also my CPU is 7th gen kaby lake if Im not mistaken. Its a intel g4560 . So not ivy Bridge. So it should be compatible with the DS918+, just the ethernet controller that I need to hope for right?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    So what exactly determines if hardware support is good for ds918? is it just CPU and NIC card on the motherboard? I have a intel g4560 and MSI B250I-Pro which has the Realtek RTL8111H Gigabit LAN controller I guess it will fail because not an intel ethernet controller?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    I hope its fine to post question here as I see others do it. I currently have older version baremetal: DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 8 DS3615xs I would like to update to a newer version. Would this loader work for me with the newest official software? Hardware is: Intel® Pentium® Processor G4560 MSI H110I PRO Intel H110 Corsair ValueSelect DDR4-2133 DIMM CL15 Single 8GB No cache disks 4 HDD's in RAID-5 but planning on adding a few more disks eventually. Maybe total of 6 in near future. Will this work you think? Thanks!
  10. Hi Guys! First of thanks for quick answers! The reason I wanted to update to the latest version is just for latest features, security patches etc... But I think what Im reaching for here is to update to the latest possible stable version. Since my system is not updated in a very long time this was my thinking. Also, Im planning to start some projects here on my machine which I have not done before, earlier I just used it as a fileserver. Now Im planning to experiment with some pi-hole functions, r-sync functions, automatic snapshot functions etc. So I figured its probably wise to have a more updated system. Maybe my mindset is wrong about this? in which case if there is not so much reason to update DSM to a more modern version then I guess I dont need to do it at the moment.. But I guess I need to attempt it at some point anyway..? My hardware is: DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 8 Intel® Pentium® Processor G4560 MSI H110I PRO Intel H110 Corsair ValueSelect DDR4-2133 DIMM CL15 Single 8GB No cache disks 4 HDD's in RAID-5 but planning on adding a few more disks eventually. Maybe total of 6 in near future. Right now showing model: DS3615xs in DSM What I was thinking also was that I read some people using virtualisation like EsXi instead of the barebone version that I use.. In this case they dont need to have a backup when they update right? They just create a virtual OS and try to update it, if that works fine then it will work in production right? If this is true I wonder if its a possibility for me to try. I have read through the forum a for a while now and it looks like people are sucessfull in updating to 6.2.-23739. Also saw that announcement and I understand that I need to update my loader to continue. Thanks for all help in pointing me in the right direction guys.. I really appreciate it and all your work!
  11. Hi Guys and Girls! I have a old version being DSM 6.0.2-8451 update 8 (installed like a year ago. Have not updated a single time since. Now its time to update my system to the latest possible version (I guess 6.2-23739) So do I first go through this tutorial first and then update from 6.1.x to 6.2 or is there a way to jump directly to the latest version? Also a little question about data integrity. I do have a lot of data on my NAS that I cant really backup. is there a risk to loose my data here? Im running it barebone no virtualisation. If there is risk then how can I secure my data before attempting to update (without backing up everything.. like 6TB or so..) Thanks guys! @Polanskiman

    Update DSM from 6.02

    Hi Guys, I have forgot basically everything from building my NAS with xpenology a while ago.. Now I want to update it to latest stable version and to be honest I dont remember how to do things. First of all my current version is DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 8 My hardware is Intel® Pentium® Processor G4560 3M Cache, 3.50 GHz MSI H110I PRO Intel H110 Corsair ValueSelect DDR4-2133 DIMM CL15 Single 8GB No cache disks 4 HDD's in RAID-5 but planning on adding a few more disks eventually. Maybe total of 6 in near future. Right now showing model: DS3615xs in DSM I think its called baremetal since I dont run any virtualization or such.. I think I need to download latest loader which seems to be Jun's loader v1.02b ? Now which version should I run to use full potential ? what to consider when choosing between: DS3615xs, DS3617xs, or 916+ ? and the latest stable DSM seems to be DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 5 ..? How do I proceed to update my DSM ..? I have never updated before only installed it for the first time a while ago.. Do I need to re download a loader and put on the USB stick or ..? I barely remember and gone through the forum for a while I cant really find a very simple tutorial for updating DSM or why to choose a certain model like DS315xs etc.. thanks! Thanks guys!
  13. How is 36 degrees in idle-.. I made some big changes here
  14. What case do you have and what's your fan setup.? Where they are located and what rpm u run them on..? Controlling the rpm or just some constant value..? Under load say transcoding a HD Bluray movie to ur TV what degree on disks then.? Skickat från min ONE E1003 via Tapatalk
  15. Agreed if disk are only activated as expected. If however this means an on/off cycle every 20 minutes, I would nog be so sure. What we probably do agree on is that the temperatures you mention are not very healty. These should be reduced by better fan cooling. Hey.. I agree the Temps are too bad and I will experiment with it today.. What are some good idle Temps and some good load Temps for a 24/7 Nas with wd reds? These are the helium ones with 8tb.. Also i wonder why plex should constantly mess up the hibernation..? Maybe better to go for something else like kodi..? Never tried it though.
