    Impossible to migrate array?

    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...

    Impossible to migrate array?

    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

    Impossible to migrate array?

    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, since it can't see the other drives. So I install DSM and then modify it again to allow 24 drives. But then when I reboot, it must see the drives and it says that I am migrating from a different ds3617xs and need to either re-install DSM, or "migrate". Well, "migrate" involves pointing it at the DSM install file, which then resets the drive count back to 12... So I end up in a loop and can never seem to access the data again. Am I doing something wrong here?

    Make drives show 1-12 instead of 13-24?

    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?
  5. Thanks! I just upgraded and it works fine
  6. I am making a DSM VM to handle my NAS duties, and I have 12 bays through a SAS expander and my LSI 9207-8i Because of the way the drives are presented, I must install DSM on a virtual disk first, then modify it to be able to see all 12 drives. Assuming there is no magic fix to get it to just see all 12 drives right away, how large should I make the DSM install volume?

    LSI 9207-8i - No Disks

    Some updates: With some help from @Hostilian I managed to get the drives to show up I didn't actually have to edit the grub config, just modifying /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf worked fine. I didn't have the other file he referenced either. I will be using the below post to get the 50MB disk to go away Its still frustrating I have to edit the synoinfo.conf. I was hoping to get it to "just work" with just bootloader modification So far with 7 random SATA-I and II 80GB and 160GB HDD's (Yes, you read that right. All I had for testing) in SHR I am getting over 350MB/s read and write on a ENCRYPTED folder. This is better performance than my real DS1817+ with all nice shiny new 8TB drives. I guess 8 vCores from an E5-2680V2 helps... I am also still trying to figure out if I will need to keep DSM installed on a virtual disk (Not that I am against it), and what size I should really use
  8. I have a DS1817+ with a dual port Mellanox ConnectX-2. Currently it works fine, and I get the full 10G in iperf From also messing around with xpenology, its clear the 6.2.1 update will break a lot of PCIe devices. What are the chances this also kills my NIC in my genuine Synology? the Mellanox ConnectX-2 is not on the QHL
  9. Perfect, that made them all show up! I may play around with the numbers a little more to see if I can get it to show a max of 12 slots (The max that I have) Have you figured out a way to hide the 50MB VMware disk?
  10. Thanks for the info, I'll give it a shot!
  11. I will be following this thread, as this information would be useful for me too. I just passed through a 9207-8i, and my drive is so far off the numbers it shows as an eSATA drive. What model card do you have?

    LSI 9207-8i - No Disks

    Okay I did make some progress, I gave DSM a virtual disk and got it installed. I now noticed that the drive does show up, but as an eSATA drive... Time to do some digging!

    LSI 9207-8i - No Disks

    I have got some parts together for a new virtual DSM build, including an LSI 9207-8i adapter, which is connected to my Supermicro BPN-SAS2-826EL1 backplane I am running ESXi 6.7, and I have passed the adapter through to the DSM virtual machine, however it will not see the single 250GB SATA disk I have currently got in the system. If I pass through the card through to a Windows VM, it works fine and I can see full SMART details Is there any further steps I can take to see any extra log detail, to try and figure this out? From research the LSI 9207-8i should work fine with DSM. Sadly I don't have any more 3.5" disk to throw in, just incase DSM doesn't like that disk for some reason.

    Best USB 3.0 PCIe card?

    It looks like compatibility is pretty wide. Synology are using many different chipsets for USB 3.0 The NEC/Renesas seems to be the most popular. I was able to get a Dell ECS U3N2-D Card for $7 used locally, and it works fine
