  1. Thanks for the reply! It was the weirdest thing, all the issues I was having went away after updating to DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 2.
  2. I'm not quite sure on the period of time, but after I got home from work today, when I tried to connect to my NAS, the normal URL redirected to me a white screen. I tried using a few different browsers, but nothing. Synology Assistant couldn't find the NAS and the I couldn't access the contents of any mounted folders in Finder. I was able to see the names of my shared folders, but each folder showed 0 files. The same thing happened over the weekend as well. After doing a hard reboot, everything works as it should, and the notifications don't mention anything other than an improper shutdown from the hard reset. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Thanks!

  3. First off, thanks to all the help I got in this forum! I haven't messed around with much yet, but the system seems to stable so far! CPU: i5 7500 MB: ASRock H270M Pro4 RAID: Dell H200 Perc Loader: Jun's 1.04b DS918+ I used this tutorial as my main point of reference. Xpenology Tools really made things easier as well! The few minor hiccups I had... - when flashing the H200, I used this tutorial, but got stuck until I stumbled onto this reddit thread. - when making a bootable USB with FREEDOS mentioned in the tutorial, my motherboard detected 2 boot entries on the USB, one UEFI and one USB. The UEFI takes you to the shell, the USB takes you to FreeDOS. - I couldn't find the MAC address through DOS/shell, but found that most manufacturers print it on a sticker on the edge of their board - be absolutely sure your NAS has a network connection when it comes time to install. B/c of the location of my NAS/workstation/monitors, I tried to share the network connection from my laptop via ethernet and couldn't for the life of me figure out what I couldn't see the NAS. Found out my ethernet port on my laptop is bad after hooking up a 30ft cat5 cable from the router in the living room to the office.
  4. Good to know. It's almost impossible to find a t-series processor for a reasonable price, and even used 7th & 8th gen i5/i7s are going for almost as much as new 9th generation CPUs.
  5. Thanks for the advice! This is exactly the response I was looking for!
  6. My NAS is mainly going to serve as a Plex server while also spinning up a few docker containers. I thought about emulating the parts at closely as possible to a 918+/1019+ since I want to transcode 4k. Here are the options that I'm looking at and would really appreciate some feedback/recommendations... 1) Intel Gold 5400 - this seemed like the most reasonably priced Celeron processor. Would this be sufficient for transcoding 4k? 2) Intel Core i3-9100 - for $60 more, I'd get 2 more cores and more powerful graphics 3) Intel Core i7-4790k - this is what's in my current system. I was thinking I could just build a new pc, and use my current system as a NAS I'm thinking of going with the i3 because my current system (with the i7) runs perfectly fine for what I do, and the i3 will be able to transcode 4k while still being power efficient. Any recommendations for the motherboard? After reading through this thread, it seems like getting the SATA ports set up first is definitely the way to go, before building the volume/raid group. So I was thinking of going with a board with 6 SATA ports and getting an additional 4 through a card. What do y'all think? I don't mind tinkering, but I would very much prefer to go with hardware that works well "out of the box" if possible. I would actually prefer to run an AMD processor, but again, I would think it's easier to buy an Intel since that's why Synology uses. Thanks!
