    Memory Amount

    I have two 128 gig ssds set up just for caching besides my four data discs.

    Memory Amount

    Okay thanks I think I'll stick with the 4 gigs. I've got a huge movie library and it seems to be streaming perfectly and the main other use for it is just backing up my other PCS and I'm getting real good transfer speed so no sense wasting money on more memory. Thanks for your opinion.

    Memory Amount

    I have a nas emulating DS918 on a J1900 motherboard. I use it for backups and plexmedia. Right now It's running 4 gigs of ram. Is there any advantage to install more than the 4 gigs I am using now. Seems to be running fine.

    Shutdown does work

    I don't have the option of using another nic as I am using a mini-itx and the only pcie slot is being used for a 4 port sata card.

    Shutdown does work

    I have another question. I found I wasn't using the correct shutdown for 918. I installed version 6.2.02. Same as before. It almost shuts down though the fans still run but I can not longer access server. Do you think if I hard shut it down after that it is likely to corrupt files? Did it a couple of times and it still boots fine. Maybe back to to openmedaivault software but really like xpenology.

    Shutdown does work

    No luck with shut down. Once I initiate shutdown it does something as I can no longer access nas but fan still running and it's showing up in my router so I guess I am stuck. I am running ds918. I don't know if a different version would have different results.

    Shutdown does work

    I did try the power button package but it still didn't shutdown.

    Thanks so much. So obvious I didn't think of it. Appreciate your information.

    I am getting the below message on my 4 bay xpenology server. My question is how can I determine which drive is starting to fail since it just says disk 7? The hard disk 7 on DS918_PLUS had an I/O error, but it is working properly now after several retries. It might have been caused by bad sectors. If this error occurs again, please back up your data and run the S.M.A.R.T. test on your hard drive to examine the hard drive status.

    Ok I will give that a try. Thanks

    Shutdown does work

    I have a Mitac PD10BI motherboard. I think they are normally only used for commercial applications. It has a Bay Trail J1900 processor. It is working fine running Xpenology Ds918 0n 1.04b boot loader with one problem. It won't shut down. I tried the program that someone made to shut down nas but still won't. Only way to shutdown is a hard shutdown with the power button. I am guessing eventually my system will get corrupted. Any suggestions. It's a great little board and runs way better than I expected, especially with Plex Media Server. Thanks in advance.

    Embedded motherboard

    Been using this software for a while and love it. I have a friend that wants me to put a nas together for him. I want to use an embedded motherboard. I think that the Asrock J5005-itx seems to be the best choice and most performance for an embedded system. Just want some feedback. Mainly he wants a low power usage system so I though embedded would be the way to go.

  15. 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.
