  1. Hi @ All as I reported in another thread, I had built my new hardware based NAS a few weeks ago. My setup is: AsRock Q2900M DELL H200 SAS Controller crossflashed with LSI Firmwapre (P19) in IT Mode 5x3TB HDDs >> Volume 3 3x2TB HDDs >> Volume 2 1x2TB HDDs >> Volume 4 1x1.5TB HDD >> Volume 1 10 Disks in total and all SATA Ports used. When I was inserting my Disks to the new NAS, I labeled them with a P-touch to know, which HDD is which Drive in DSM and to know in which slot they are in my case. I noticed, that when attaching a Drive on Port 1 from the
  2. war auch bei mir so! Habe es anhand dieses Tipps hier nun auch geschafft meine USB Devices zu sehen. Bei mir ist es ein AsRock Q2900M Board. Danke apejovic Gruß Merlin
  3. Thanks ROKH and snoopy78 I already knew this BLOG Post from Michael Kuron Site. The reason why I was asking here in this Thread was the fact that it was already mentioned, that the P20 is maybe not the best Firmware. Additionally, I searched Youtube and I found the procudure for a H310. It was a little bit different as decribed in this article. And it was good to ask. Now I got a Link (thanks snoopy) where more details were described. Now I know how to crossflash AND which Firmware I have to flash (P19). Thanks again! merlin
  4. Hallo Apejovic, danke dass Du dir hier die Mühe gemacht hattest. Ich hatte noch einen EN Thread aufgemacht und dort mit XPEH geschrieben. Den Thread findet man hier: Danke an alle, und bis zum nächsten mal Gruß der Merlin
  5. Thanks XPEH! I am still not running the new Server, but I was able to backup all Data to some USB Disks. I hope that the good old friend Murphy is on vacation and not around me. I checked youtube and the official documentation and I think I will add the HDDs to the System, build my SHR based RAID5 out of 5 3TB Disks, and all other HDDs I have will be added later as an additional Volume, also in a SHR Config. So my next step is to crossflash my Dell H200 RAID Controller to a LSI (IT) Firmware and start buildung the Hardware NAS. Thanks, and see you in next Thread! cheers
  6. Hi XPEH. Thanks for sorting the things out. It helps me a lot to understand how it works. BOOTLOADER: ============== Ok, if the bootloader is the trigger to have the migration-option, then I would expect this option in my scenario. My VMWare based xpenology has this Bootloader Image(s): NB_x64_5031_DSM_50-4493_Xpenology_nl-flat.vmdk NB_x64_5031_DSM_50-4493_Xpenology_nl.vmdk The new HW Based NAS will then be installed wit this bootloader: XPEnoboot 5.1-5022.3 >>> new Bootloader > new Synology NAS Model > Migration Option ABOUT THE 3TB SPARE HDD: =======
  7. Again... Thanks XPEH! OK the Answer about 2) is not 100% clear to me, but I think I can handle it. I did not understand why the bootloader has a role for the Migration Task, because I expected that the installed DSM Version on each Disk is relevant for that. The problem I have is, that I have not enough spare HDDs here to backup all the Data first. I have an HP N40L with 4 fully filled 2 TB WD HDDs, running in a ESXi Environment, where the 4 Disks are attached as RDM Drives. Then I have my second ESXi Server, where I have 6 HDDs attached. They are directly attached to the XPEnol
  8. Hi Stanza, you wrote, that you are using a "Dell H200 SAS Controller Flashed to LSI-9211-8i IT Firmware" I have the same DELL H200 Controller. My plan is to use this controller in my new hardware based NAS Box based on a AsRock Q2900M Mainboard. Could you please send me a Link to a detailed Guide how to crossflash this H200 to a working LIS Firmware? I would like to use the latest available DSM 5.1 5022 Update 3 version. Thanks a lot cheers Merlin
  9. Thanks XPEH ! Your inline answers were helpful! But some more questions... 1) You said, that the USB Stick with bootloader on it is still needed for rebooting the NAS Is it somehow possible to run this in a different way? How is this done in original Synology NAS Boxes? Is there also a separate Disk? My fear is that the USB stick dies and I am maybe not able to boot this Thing up. Or can I use any of the available Bootloaders? Which one should I use? the Nanoboot or the XPEnoboot or the Gnoboot? 2) You said: "It might pick it up and offer migration with all the data pr
  10. Hello @ All, I would like to understand some thing before I start my installation. I am currently running two VM xpenology NAS, and now I would like to install one on real Hardware. I bought a AsRock Q2900M and I have a Raid Controller for 8 HDDs. Before I start the installation, here are my questions... 1) If I put the bootloader Image on the USB Stick and then boot from it, I expect, that I see the NAS then in the Finder Topol. Shall I change the serial Number before I continue the Installation? I saw a Vid on youtube 6 month ago or so. Is this needed? Does it make sense?
  11. Hallo Forum, ich würde gerne vor der Installation noch ein paar Dinge verstehen... Ich habe echte Hardware. Also keine VM, oder sonstwas. Ich würde gerne einen RAID Controller auf mein Board stecken. Später sollen daran dann einige Disks hängen. Bisher allerdings erstmal noch keine angesteckt. Wenn ich jetzt den Bootloader auf den Stick packe und davon boote. Dann komme ich ja dann zu dem Schritt dass ich suchen kann, und dann hoffentlich das NAS finde. Und nun die Fragen... 1) sollte ich hier irgendwo schauen dass ich die Seriennummer ändere? 2) Wenn ich noch keine HDD drinne
  12. Okay... wie es scheint hat da keiner eine Lösung parat. Inzwischen habe ich auch festgestellt, dass zumindest auf dem dicken Server die smb.conf Änderungen einen Reboot nicht so ganz überleben. Hat da jemand eine funktionierende Lösung wie man die smb.conf anpassen kann und dies auch nach dem Reboot funktioniert? Den HP habe ich auch noch nicht restarted, also weiss ich noch nicht, ob die /etc/exports einen Reboot überleben. Was das mounten von Shares angeht... so wie ich das gelesen habe kann man das einmal in der fstab machen, oder aber auch als zusätzliches .sh Script in der /rc
  13. Hallo Forum, dies ist mein erster Post hier. Ich habe seit kurzem die XPEnology´s installiert. Ich habe 2 Stk als VMWare Images laufen. Beide laufen auf unterschiedlichen esxi Hosts Einer ist ein N40L und der andere eine eigene Kreation mit VT-d um echte Hardware an eine virtuelle Maschine zu hängen. Das funktioniert auch alles super soweit. Jetzt möchte ich aber nicht unbedingt zwei Admin Oberflächen haben, oder Services auf die beiden Hosts verteilen. Ich würde gerne alles über das Image auf meinem "DICKEN" ESXi Host administrieren. Dazu habe ich nun schon folgendes ge
