About Joe Bethersonton

  1. If I boot without disk 1, then it boots as it should. Then I tried switching the disk 1 (new) and disk 2, so I have the new empty drive in disk 2, and disk 2 is in disk 1 slot now. Then it booted without problems, and it is now rebuilding the array.
  2. I am running SHR with BTRFS. I will try the other things when I get back home.
  3. My XPEnology is/was running with: Disk 1: 2 TB Disk 2: 6 TB Disk 3: 6 TB Disk 4: 2 TB I was having bad sectors on one of the older 2TB drives, so I am gonna replace them. First I shut down the server, and replaced disk 4 with another drive. DSM came up with a "degraded" storage pool, just as expected. I added the new drive to storage pool and repaired it. Everything looks good. Now running with a 2TB drive in disk 1, and the rest is 6TB drives. This morning I was trying to replace disk 1 following the same procedure. After replacing the drives, DSM never came up again. Synology Assistant found the NAS, but didn't recognize that any existing DSM was installed. I didn't have time to reinstall the old drive, but I assume that it will boot up as usual when that is done. How do I replace disk 1?

    8th gen i5 + Asrock H370M-ITX/ac works w/ DSM 6.2.1.23824

    @ed_co I have just tried installing 918+, and with a SN and mac adress from a real Synology, I am able to do offline transcoding in DS Video. When I do play something that hasn't been transcoded (offline) on my iphone or in a browser, then the CPU usage goes up by 20%, so I am not sure that HW transcoding actually works properly.

    Migrating from Synology to XPEnology - how?

    I did it a few days ago. I tested that I had a configuration that worked using a spare disk. Then I installed all the drives from my Synology, and I got the option to migrate. I did that, and it worked.

    No, not out of the box anyway. The build is quite new, so I haven't had time to test everything yet. Do you know, if I need to change anything in the grub.cfg to get the second NIC working?

    Someone mentioned in another thread of mine, that it could be a pain to get hw transcoding working, and that the CPU had enough resources to do the transcoding anyway. I haven't been able to figure out what other differences there where between the 918+ and the 3617xs - or are there no differences?

    It also looks like the hard drives power consumption is higher than you mentioned: https://www.seagate.com/www-content/datasheets/pdfs/ironwolf-14tb-DS1904-10-1807GB-en_GB.pdf The 6TB IronWolf uses 7.2w which idle. I have two of them, and a third one on the way.

    If I read this correctly, then they use an i3-8350K? I guess some of the higher comsumption in my system could be from a PSU that is inefficient?

    It is also a bit more than I was hoping for, perhaps I can tweak the power consumption a bit by undervolting the cpu. I will also start using the "Power Schedule" feature, or try and get WOL working. On the positive side, the new system has so much more CPU, that I can consolidate my "servers". I have two Raspberry Pi's running 24/7, those services can now be run in Docker. I also pay for a VPS hosted in the cloud, which I no longer need.

    How low did you think it would go?

    My power-consumption-meter says 53W after boot with all drives spinning.
  13. I just wanted to add a brief comment about my build, to let others know that this combination of hardware works. CPU: i5-8400 MB: Asrock H370M-ITX/ac Memory: 8 GB G.Skill Aegis 2666 mhz Disk: 2x 6TB Ironwolf + 2x 2TB Samsung/WD. USB drive: Kingston SE9 8GB Loader: Jun's 1.03b DS3617xs with DSM 6.2.1.23824 update 1. It's running bare metal. Everything in the BIOS is default, except that I changed the boot order to legacy USB (not UEFI). In the DSM, I only have one NIC available, but I haven't tried getting the other one working. I have tried using all 6 SATA slots, and they all work. No issues at all. I have tried migrating from another NAS as well, and that worked. Let me know, if you have any questions.
  14. I am a bit confused about the different loaders, is there any difference between DS918+, DS3615xs and DS3617xs? Is there different functionality, or is it just a question of selecting the version that works with my hardware?

    Migrating from Synology to XPEnology - how?

    I'm afraid I don't have the option of doing a backup, as I don't have enough space anywhere else. I will however tale a backup of most vital data. When I just add the disk to the new box, it will just detect the old build and "upgrade" the DSM to the new hardware? I'm gonna be using it mainly for storage of movies and running Emby and Synology Drive. I will also be running a few containers in docker, and I was thinking always on.
