  1. From RDM to Passthrough - Risky?

    Hi guys, Im running XPEnology on a non Xeon CPU, so pass through is not possible at the moment. Xeon its on my upgrade list but not till next month. Is it possible to setup my volumes as RDM and once I upgrade my CPU to pass-through my disks?
  2. Hello, I am totally new to Synology/XPEnology and on ESXi as-well. I bought a MicroServer G8 G1610T Celeron CPU. I upgraded my RAM capacity to 16GB and currently I'm running a couple of VM's on it. For the last 2 months I was reasearching and testing the XPEnelogy Installation/Configuration proccess in order to get familiar with the enviromen. Now that Im confident with the XPenelogy enviroment I need to setup my Disk and go live. For my setup I have 2 x 4TB Red WD and I will assign 4GB of ram minimum on my VM. One of the disk will hold all of my shares and the other one will do backups of the main disk. I don't really need RAID cause data recovery is more important to me than hardware redundancy. From my research I have seen that I have 3 ways to go: Create datastores on my ESXi, RDM and passthrough. As I said recovery of my data is very important to me, and I would like to be able to plug in my disk on any computer and retrieve my data in case of a disaster. So I guess creating a datastore is not going to work. In order to use passthrough I need to have a XEON CPU, is that right ? And Im not quite sure about the cons and pros of RDM. What can you suggest? What is the best way to configure my disk so I can fulfill my needs ? And also what can you suggest for a backup solution?
  3. I dont know how and why but now I'm able to see the usb disk in the dsm enviroment. Is quite strange because the only thing I did is to run a Live DVD of the The Linux Mind and run via SSH the commands you posted. For now the issue I guess is solved, I dont knoe if it will happen again in the future.

  5. linux mint was able to mount the hdd. I also delete and re-created the VM in order to fix that, so i guess is a dsm issue.
  6. i can attach drives on my win server machine
  7. Nothing...Is like never attached a usb disk on it
  8. I dont think thats possible either.
  9. Thanks for your reply. This is how i set up my vm: If i try to add another USB Controller it gives me an error of exceeding the USB Controller limit
  10. Im running ESXi 6.5 on a HP Proliant MicroServer G8. I managed successfully to run the latest XPEnology on a new VM and I attached a couple of virtual disk on it for testing before I transfer my data. Everything looks fine until I tried to mount my USB Disk which will store my MacBook's Time Machine Backups. The same disk can be mounted on my Win Server VM but, not on the XPEnology one. I even tried to hard mount it via SSH without any luck. I installed vmware tools but nothing again. I tried both USB2 and USB3 ports. What else would you advised me to try in order to mount that disk?
