    DSM 6.2.1-23824 - Update 1

    Outcome of the installation/update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM_DS918+_23824 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.04b - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL ASRock Q1900-ITX - Additional comments: Internal NIC works great - Additional comments: REBOOT, OK and Shutdown OK SDR Mode with 3 WD 2tb red drives and 2 Crucial BX500 2.5" 120GB SATA for caching
  2. I think I am going to settle for 916. It is the only that seems to work fine. I have updated it to the last pat that's supposed to be able to use and all went ok. 6.1.7 15284. I can't figure out why nothing else worked but oh well. It's up and running. Able to shutdown and also reboot.
  3. I would love to use another nic unfortuantely it's a mini itx board with only one pcie slot and that has a 4 port card in it. Oh well. I thought you had to use the mac of the nic or it wouldn't work.
  4. I have no idea why as I had no luck with 3615. I have tried about everything and coudn't get 918 installed but was able to get 816. I think I am still going to send the board back to New Egg. My other installs have been simple without these problems and am afraid as soon as I want to update I will be stuck again and have to start from scratch.
  5. I am using the actual mac address of the board but will try 3615. Retired and nothing but time but after a few days gets a little frustrating. Thanks for the advice.
  6. I have packed it up 3 times and just opened the box again to try one more time. As I mentioned I have installed xpenology on several different boards so I know the procedure but just can't seem to get it installed on this one and this is the board I really wanted to use
  7. Yes not the cable. I have tried so many different things. 918 3615 17 etc and different versions. I just cant get it to work. Had no problems with some of my other boards but really wanted to use this due to low power usage. Sending it back to New Egg. By the way works fine on linux and windows. Spent so many hours working with it to no avail. I have been defeated. Any suggestions on an embedded motherboard what will definitely work other than the one I tried greatly appreciated. Also updated bios to latest just hoping that could be the problem but no difference.

    ASRock J4005B-ITX

    Has anyone tried this motherboard ASRock J4005B-ITX. Did a search and couldn't find it mentioned.
  9. I just can't connect to install os. It's a brand new board. I have installed xpenology on other motherboards so I have some idea what I am doing. What I noticed is one of the leds on the rj45 network connector is red. It should be yellow or green so I wonder if I have a bad nic on the board. About ready to return the motherboard unless there are other suggestions. Really wanted to use this one due to the low power usage. I am guessing my onboard network isn't compatible. I have 6 drives so I can't use an addon card for network as the one slot is already filled with a sata card.
  10. Thanks but have no idea what you are saying. I used the latest loader and still had no lucky
  11. I thought I had read everything before I built my second nas. After failing to connect to the Asrock J3455-ITx and reading further looks like a just bought the wrong version of the J3455 motherboard. Is there any work around or do I just need to return the board. Thanks

    Adding a 4th drive question

    Great. thanks so much. Just the information I was looking for.
  13. I have a 4 bay server case with 3 hard drives at this time setup in shr mode which I guess is about the same as raid 5. I am going to add a 4th drive to the case. Will it basically running in raid 10 mode then. Other questions is with other operating systems I have always manually setup as raid 1, 5 etc as I have never had shr option. Is there an advantage of setting up as standard raid over using shr? Hope that all makes sense. Thanks

    Introduce yourself here

    I am a retired tech from Xerox Corporation. Been building pc's since the beginning it was possible do. Before that worked on CPM machines. Love anything Technical. From South Dakota but right now living in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Much better weather this time of year. Love the site. Lots of information that helped me get my nas going. Was using Whs V1 and V2 and after that was no longer supported have been using Windows server 2016 essentials, which for my need is way more than I needed as it's just for home use. Love Xpenology os.
