  1. I have a DS1817+ which has an 8 Disk SHR-2 volume setup. I have created a DS3617xs virtual machine. I had to modify the synoinfo.conf file to get DSM to see the physical disks from my passed through LSI 9207-8i HBA. I gave the VM a 20GB datastore to get DSM installed initially If I simply take the disks out of the DS1817+ and throw them into the new system, or will it completely bamboozle the system? If it does the whole "Migrate and install DSM" thing on reboot, it will screw the whole setup since I will then lose access to the disks from the LSI 9207-8i once it installs the new

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    But we are still lacking VMXNET3 for 10G+ networking right? I don't want to drop down to a 1G link when my VM supports well over 10G

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Is the ds918 loader the only one that will be released going forward? I have some pretty decent systems that are Ivy Bridge that I don't plan on replacing any time soon. Unless I am mistaken, I am stuck on DSM 6.2-23739
  4. So if I start off the install with 2 drives, and then add 10, it will automatically "mirror" the install to the other drives in the background, no matter what type of separate disk group I make?
  5. I have been playing around with getting DSM running on my second ESXi host for the longest time, but I run into the problem of the disk not being "aligned" 1-12. So I have to modify DSM to allow more disks to see all of them This is fine, but if I ever need to migrate or switch loaders, I get into a loop of installations because as soon as I modify DSM to see more disks, it wants to migrate the install, and then overwrites the modifications again causing the disks not to show up I would be perfectly content with giving my DSM VM a Whatever size virtual disk (Which would
  6. DiskIdxMap=0C00 with SataPortMap=1 gets me nothing, I get the UI, but no disks found
  7. Perhaps I should have added more details, my goal is to get all 12 physical drives to show up while only editing the options on the bootloader, I do not want to have to edit the synoconfig. If the 50MB drive shows or not I don't mind too much. I also don't want to have to rely on a virtual disk with DSM installed I have tried, I have endlessly tried seemingly every configuration No matter what I do I get "No Hard Disks Found". I have tried endless configurations on the SataPortMap and the DiskIdxMap. Nothing makes them show up 1-12 and therefore get detected by the boot
  8. Which tutorial? There are a ton of tutorials, and all the ones I have read only touch on the subject with quite vague points. Everyone keeps telling everyone else to read "the tutorial" but there is no single, main tutorial? The most detailed one is this - It says "append SataPortMap=XX" "where XX is the number of drives" which as far as I know, is wrong, because it would mean the following: I had 12 drives, there is no way I could enter "12" as that would then mean "Port 1 of first controller, and first 2 ports from second controller" which is not what I want
  9. Well, I have been messing around with this for a little while now and I don't think its possible with this hardware. Damn!
  10. Yeah that was my entire point Almost all other storage platforms let you browse snapshots on encrypted volumes. I think the issue is that the encryption is not on the whole volume, but per shared folder
  11. Which guides are you referring to? All I can find is threads with people being confused I have 1 SATA controller for the 50MB VMDK, and then my HBA. It seems like I should be entering 0 12 or 1 12, however I can't go over 9 on the entries...
  12. That's what I am doing, but no luck If I don't modify DSM to allow 24 drives they don't show up, and if I do modify DSM to see 24 drives I get stuck in the loop
  13. I have a DSM intall in ESXi, and I have an LSI 9207-8i passed through with 12 drives attached. For whatever reason, they connect in DSM on ports 13-24. Because of this, I need to modify DSM to allow more than 12 disks once its installed. And because of THAT, I must install DSM on a virtual drive first. (if I could fix that, this problem would probably be moot!) I got everything going in a test VM, and I wanted to simulate migrating the array. So I deleted the 20GB virtual disk I had DSM installed on, and made a new one. As soon as it boots it acts like a fresh install,
  14. I have a VM intall of DSM, and I want the drives to show as being 1-12 instead of 13-24. Is there anything I can do in the bootloader config to get this done?
