    Not sure how to more more explicit, but here is the sequence that I would try: 1. Disable extra 1 Gbe port 2. Install DSM 3. Assign static IP to Gbe port in DSM 4. Reboot and evaluate to make sure all is working 5. Install HP 10Gbe card and evaluate

    FWIW, the card is a QLogic 8214 rebranded as HP. I am not aware of any Synology OEM QLogic cards but there is a native driver qlcnic which should support that chip. The PCI ID of the supported card is VID 1077 DEVID 8020 - and according to this the HP card keeps the ID's intact, so the native driver should work. DHCP assignment pre-boot is not explicitly for the OS; it's for PXE boot, which DSM doesn't use. Post boot, the OS will re-request the address(es) from DHCP or use a static IP as needed. You should not connect the iLo NIC to your regular network (and the

    Well the obvious troubleshooting option would be to configure a static IP for the Gbe card, and see if you can still connect to it after you install the 10Gbe. How many NICs are in the server now?
  4. Loader 1.03b, DS3617xs DSM 6.2.3-25426 and after install, upgrade to "update 3" Depending on the NIC you are using, you may need the updated drivers in extra.lzma. You must set the boot mode to CSM/Legacy if the BIOS supports UEFI (that server may predate UEFI however, and the default boot mode may work). FMI:
  5. You might consider using the FAQ and downloads from this site, and not elsewhere. VID/PID is clearly covered in the install procedures.
  6. I think you have the latest. Regardless it's a network driver, so if you have one that works, go with it; not much value in trying to get a more recent rev, as it's usually only to support newer silicon that you don't have.
  7. For most systems, Legacy == CSM
  8. Why this: And not this: It's odd that you don't repeat what you have done for the 3020 that is working. In that vein, you already know you have to change from UEFI. This needs to be UEFI -> CSM otherwise you must rewrite the loader for MBR. You might need extra.lzma for the NIC but the only way to tell is to load it or run down the PCI ID of the embedded card.
  9. DS414 is a 32-bit ARM model and cannot be migrated directly to the platforms that XPe supports. Regardless, you should install DSM clean on an XPe box, then copy your data instead of migrate so that you are not hit later with the 16TB volume limit coming from the 32-bit platform. FMI:
  10. Technically more threads are better. In reality the difference will be imperceptible. However, the i3 has much newer silicon, which will benefit in 1) cooler operation and 2) better transcoding support, should you wish to do that.
  11. If you are connecting SATA disks to the motherboard, they need to be visible in BIOS. Solve that problem and try again.
  12. DSM is not particularly CPU limited. There is little to no impact from running as a VM, particularly if you pass through your SATA controller. But to each their own.
  13. Yes, it should all work. However, that processor cannot be fully utilized (24 threads vs. a maximum supported 16 threads on DS3617xs). ECC is transparent to the Linux OS, so there will be benefit with no specific action on your part. I'm not a huge fan of Syno VMM implementation, you might consider running DSM in ESXi, and other VM's in parallel as needed (you can set up separate storage for ESXi VM's, or run NFS out of DSM).
  14. Any disk that is "Initialized" has the system partition on it. Just add a VMDK and put a Basic Storage Pool on it. The way I would do this is add in a second SATA Controller (SATA 0:0 is still the loader, SATA1:0 is the new VMDK). Then you need to understand the PCI slot order of each controller. It should be SATA0 with the lowest slot #, SATA1 with the next lowest, and finally your passthrough controller with the highest. If it differs from that, you will need to reorder the SataPortMap and DiskIdxMap parameters accordingly. Assuming that the slot order is SATA0, S
  15. There is no capability to install a different NIC. If there is a JMicron driver available in @IG-88's extra.lzma, you could try that. Otherwise that device is not suitable for XPe.
