  1. you can start reading here: https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/8057-physical-drive-limits-of-an-emulated-synology-machine/?do=findComment&comment=122819 quicknick's loader might be able to do it, its not that difficult to try that if you already have a hardware with 24+ disks you will only be able to use dsm 6.1 that way
  2. according to the pci.update file in the driver source thats just one of the main id's of i350, there should be sub id's like the one's from above the sub id's might be there because of different phy chips (i guess), the 00a3 sub id not persent in the ootb driver is the only one (important) missing but present in the driver from my extra.lzma, if the card does not work ootb then try the extra.lzma with the newer driver
  3. to be sure you would need to know pci vendor an product id these are supported by the igb.ko driver ( in the last published extra.lzma 17aa 1074 ThinkServer I350-T4 AnyFabric 8086 0001 Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T4 8086 0003 Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T4 8086 00a1 Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T4 8086 00a3 Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T4 8086 5001 Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T4 a more recent 2021 5.5.2 igb driver has one i350-T4 entry more 8086 00aa Ethernet Network Adapter I350-T4 for OCP NIC 3.0 but thats a special version for .op
  4. nimm eine leere hdd und einen neuen usb stick und versuch dich an 6.2.3, hat definitiv mehr sicherheitslücken behoben als eine 6.1.7 u3 immer wenn du etwas zeit hast fährst du 6.1.7 runter, ziehst den usb ab, klemmst die (6.1.7) platten ab und testest 6.2.3 wenn alles geht kannst du den 6.2.3 usb benutzen um deine 6.1.7 installtion auf 6.2.3 zu bringen (getesteten 6.2.3 stick booten, synolohy assistant starten und ein update durchführen lassen) in sachen installtion ist alles fast wie bei 6.1 nimm 3615 oder 3617, loader 1.03b als mbr version des loaders (wegen
  5. usually not in case of storage units, beside psu and cpu you need cooling for hdd's having temp. controlled psu fan and case fan (later one controlled from bios) is preferable over a passive psu the cpu fan might be optional but it does not hurt that much to have a temp. controlled fan with decent (heat pipe?) heat sink and low noise fan (>80mm) (example might be https://noctua.at/en/nh-l9x65/) the case fan should be mounted opposite (to the psu) back end of the housing so you get it venting left an right back and air "in" needs to come from the area where the disks are,
  6. interessant das dies hilft, zu dem kernel parameter findet man als doku "Disable most log messages", hätte ich bei der beschreibung nicht erwartet würde evtl. auch bei anderen außer acer helfen aber ist zum glück kein so häufiges problem und war eher bei sehr alter hardware zu beobachten hatte das mal vor längerem auf einem Core2Duo E6600 system aber testen kann ich das nicht mehr
  7. ich wüßte jetzt kein generellen gründe das es an sich geht kann man hier sehen https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/13862-dsm-617-15284-update-3/ falls du mal die checksumme deines files prüfen willst, das wäre die date die bei mir rumlag und der akruelle download von synology war identisch synology_bromolow_3615xs.pat MD5 Checksum: C99933BDF259DA532BF7C2AF741CF2F1 SHA-1 Checksum: 338332BBEEE33C6A9E07884BDEF2FAA9C20C7F59 SHA-256 Checksum: 6BE34E34949DD52E58D1C1C30F19D693407B1A41BC206D057F1F7D8A7E9136AB SHA-512 Checksum: 91E2D2C61714644EED2DB9223333018586FE
  8. there are xpenology users not having updated for years ... most of the stuff you are worried about should have been answered by yourself before installing xpenology for more then testing "bricking" (its not like that because its still possible to downgrade or do other things) can be prevented by disabling internet access to the ip address of you xpenology box and only installing proven updates manually (or disable access to all domains involved in updating) if security is most important don't use xpenology, you rely on a lot of code from the loader and drivers (or 3rd par
  9. the message is generated because the loader you use is already "upgraded" to 6.2.3 (zImage and rd.gz on 2nd partition - can manually replaced with older files like from the original loader or from inside the *.pat file you want to install - *.pat can be opened like a zip file) 6.2.2 is not recomanded as it has incomaptible drivers to 6.2.0 and 6.2.3, start with a loader based on 6.2.0 in its original state), install 6.2.0 and then update to 6.2.3 by the gui (manually feed the 6.2.3 pat file), might be the safest way hpe microserver usually use older broadcom nic's, that one is alread
  10. depends on your setup or how you want to use it there was and is the option to install 7.0 in dsm's VMM (kvm based) that is running on a xpenology dsm 6.2.3 https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/44390-dsm-70-release-candidate-is-out/?do=findComment&comment=206987 if you insist on esxi or real kvm you need to wait for a new loader that might be seen here https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/44311-dsm-624-7-loader-major-kernel-changes/
  11. 4 cores without HT vs 6 with HT HT will add the eqivalent of ~0.25 cores per real core so its 4 vs ~7-7.5 but the gen10 + is nit that good for transcoding because of the disabled gpu support, even a cheap apollo lake system can handle transcoding with the gpu and intel qsv gen10+ looks nice but it has its weakness (even also iLO is not included)
  12. 918+ has a 2 nic limit that can be tweaked after installing the main problem is that hpe disabled the gpu and any load is going though the cpu, so having two or four cores more will make a huge difference (200-400 MHz more in the upper clock area with just 4 cores will not make much difference, so any 4 core cpu would be a waste of money when it comes to transcoding, E-2278G and E-2278GE would have the same TDP as E-2246G and would still be usable on 3617 as it has a max. of 16 cpu, in this case 8 core + 8 HT)
  13. in dont think so, synology had 7.0 preview/beta for DS3615xs and DS3617xs so people having installed that would not be able to downgrade back to 6.2.4 and should not be able to get 7.0 release? seems unlikely, maybe they will just wait a little longer for some units to release 7.0 [a litltle search on the internet and a few minutes later] "... DSM 7.0 final release for FS, SA, XS/XS+ and DVA series models is currently under development and will be available in Q4 (October – November – December) of 2021. ..." so there is no cpu problem as they will
  14. just in case you wonder why no one answers, what you are doing here is called thread hijacking and you are stuffing any random/unrelated problem you have too
  15. ahh right its possible to have more then one initiator in sas, so it would be possible to connect more then one server to the enclosure (and if the enclosure is split into 15 drive rows with separate sas connection each its even easier)
  16. i doubt the part about 45 drives working flawlessly with xpenology you might want to read this before wasting to much time https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/8057-physical-drive-limits-of-an-emulated-synology-machine/page/4/
  17. i don't know what boot devices HPE shows but it needs to be the non-uefi (aka legacy) usb boot device, legacy is just a option, if you choose a uefi boot device the system well still boot in uefi
  18. in dont see that on my systems, maybe look in bios for apm/acpi related switches and try changing things (like if acpi 2.0 is not activated then do so) thats normal, usually you find something about 6 Gbps link speed [Sun Jun 20 10:08:42 2021] ata6: SATA max UDMA/133 abar m2048@0xf742b000 port 0xf742b380 irq 131 [Sun Jun 20 10:08:42 2021] ata1: SATA link up 6.0 Gbps (SStatus 133 SControl 300) only if shutdown works when using a different nic instead it also depends on how nic's are already configured, if all thre

    conector ssd

    the other side of the cable might be more important so see, but its no standard cable for sure you might find a cable like that in some notebooks for attaching hdd's, so if you have access to a huge pile of old notebooks and some time ... otherwise it might be possible to solder a cable, the sata/power connector we see in the picture is found on housings for sata hdd's and backplanes (or just use a sata data and power cable instead), the other side will be tougher part
  20. not necessarily, if there was no content to write on the ssd's the state of the raid5 (or more likely shr1) volume might not be affected 1st is to know what happened, if there are hardware problems you will not have much success with recovery procedures or a start over without data not sure what "all possible options" means in your case, also the description of what happened so far is giving more questions then answers, it starts with a restore ....? the step where you installed a new dsm version might be the one where the system/swap partition came to the former cache d
  21. the two ssd's are shown as "initialized" and that means system and swap where copied to them as if in the in the process of building a raid under normal circumstances a new disk in the system is not touched and will stay empty, cache disks don't hold system/swap as disks making up a data volume my conclusion would be that the two cache disks cant be redone to get the cache disks content back because there are already 4.4GByte overwritten by the added system and swap partitions if the there was cache content not written to the volume it will be lost, hard to say how much is missi
  22. you cant add cam license the normal way by purchasing through synology for a xpenology box, the "legal" way is to use a real dsm box and share the license to a xpenology (the alternative might be a hacked versions of SS but beside legal trouble and finding it there is also a risk of adding more to you xpenology then just SS - aka malware/virus - it would be kind of easy to add that stuff to a unsigned *.spk file) there is also a older version of SS having a littel more free cam's by default (look in the tutorial section for this)
  23. maybe this is a starting point? https://docs.oracle.com/en/virtualization/virtualbox/6.0/admin/adv-storage-config.html or jus goolge for "VirtualBox Raw Hard Disk" or similar
  24. there are som differences in the default drivers from synology, like newer lsi sas drivers, newer mellanox 10G nic drivers but the kernel with dsm 6.2 is the same for both with 7.0 there will be more difference, 3617 get 4.4 kernel like 918+ has and 3615 stays on 3.10, kernel, if that is of importance depends on what loader(s) we might see for 7.0 (atm 6.2.4 and 7.0 are off limit with loader 1.03c/1.04b) did you check that the hardware of the 4port nic is reliable? maybe boot up i live linux and copy some data (that way anything hardware related is the same as with d
  25. if you used 6.2.4 for 3615 it will not work, it needs to be 6.2(.0) or 6.2.3 to reset the vm after a failed attempt you could just switch the vm off, replace the synoboot.img with the original file (in the vm's directory), delete the virtual disk (in the virtualbox gui) and crate a new one about the vm's config there is not much difference for 918+ and 3615 on my system
