    Bare Metal vs Hypervisor

    For what you you need windows, if you have docker? It's for an old Starcraft server. Sometimes as remote desktop. Sent from my LG-H818 using Tapatalk

    Bare Metal vs Hypervisor

    I used to Vmware to host my Minecraft server along with a Windows machine. Only issue with Xpenology was lack of SMART status and temp on hard disk. Thoughtput capped at about 70MB/ss on a E8500 CPU. Since the system disk broken, I switched to bare metal. Now the throughput max at 110MB/s. Also managed to use docker to host a Minecraft server. Going to explore Virtualbox to host a Windows machine later. The system now suffer from BIOS corruption every time it boot up and requires to press F1 key. Not perfect but acceptable. At least the hard disk status report is now useful. Sent from my LG-H818 using Tapatalk

    Schedule boot

    On my machine it is not possible as BIOS is not compatible. Not sure if any other mobo could work. There is a thread on this forum mentioned a workaound to use another device to WOL wake up Xpenology. I'm on mobile now but you may do a search for the topic. Sent from my LG-H818 using Tapatalk
  5. I usually use MHDD for low level health check. But it would take a day to finish entire surface. Most of the time run for 15 mins can already give a good indication. MHDD needs offline and in DOS mode and IDE setting in BIOS. Sent from my LG-H818 using Tapatalk

  7. Yeah, if you want to the lastest and greatest, using XPEnoboot, then that is the price you pay for..... unfortunately. If are happy about using Nanoboot, then should continue using it. Question in my mind never get answer.....under what special reason that the developers were not able to crack their heads and solve this age old problem???? All the best for the coming year 2016. It's really an old issue. This thread alone is 18 months old. Hapoy New Year to all! Sent from my LG-H818 using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks, will give this a go. Would this be in addition to RDM or a way of avoiding that? My N40L has arrived, is it worth trying the same 2 X 2TB drives in that and should I install XPEnology natively or as a VM again? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Why not try driver first? If it's solve the issue, you can then decide if rdm is needed or not. My suggest is also to go with rdm unless you plan to share the hard disk with other VMs. Sent from my LG-H818 using Tapatalk
  9. I'm not sure why the dramatic change. Given that it does transfer at top speed in the beginning, it worth to try RDM to see if the bottleneck can be relieved. Setup RDM is easy. Just need couple of command lines. The rest is similar to regular vmdk. You can do from ssh. Drive symbol is long so better do copy and paste. http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/micros ... Id=1017530 My ESXI crashed and I'm able to keep a RDM disk on a new bare metal installation. Really cool if you may setup bare metal one day.
  10. Did you have a problem where it starts off quick and slows? Mine seems to be random, up and down if it is a large file. Same to me. Start up fast and dropped after a while. Would it be the buffer which help in the beginning?
  11. On old machine like my E8500, RDM does improve speed by over 50%. Another benefit I just realized is that the RDM can direct migrate to bare-metal Xpenology.

    BIOS CMOS checksum error

    Thanks alot sbv3000! It's seem F1 is unavoidable for the time being.
  13. I started another before realized this post is very much alive. My HP DC7900 has CMOS reset everytime booted with Xpenoboot 5.2 USB even before install DSM. Nanoboot 32bit has no such problem. Unfortunately we don't have 32bit Xpenoboot available or otherwise many of us can benefit from headless server. I don't need WOL nor scheduled power on. All I needed is proper power on and shutdown. Seems I have to compromise. Changing mobo will turn this DC7900 into useless metal. Wish everyone a happy new year!
  14. Good to hear that. I just installed DSM 5.2-5592.4 with XPEnoboot 5.2-5592.2 and phpVirtualBox 4.3.30.1 (from xpenology.me). On top I setup first MineOS VM and it works after a little bit of twists. No finding enough reasons to upgrade DSM though.

    BIOS CMOS checksum error

    I replaced the battery already. Positive that the corruption is caused by the Xpenoboot USB (even without any harddisk attached). It seems to me that the clock has been changed during the boot up process and that's somehow corrupted the CMOS. Every time this happens, the clock was set backward to GMT.
