  1. Thanks. I had an overkill of a system for just running DSM, so I decided to install Proxmox on bare metal and run DSM on it along with other VMs (mainly docker containers). I think I will be using DSM mainly for file serving over the LAN, for downloading BT using Download Station, and for remote backups using Hyper Backup and maybe rsync. Maybe even Surveillance Station once I get my cameras set up. For my use case, should I setup HDD passthrough on Proxmox (if this is possible) for DSM to access directly?
  2. Hi, I am new to Xpenology and Proxmox but I just managed to install Xpenology DSM 6.2.3 on Proxmox 6.2-4. DSM was assigned a single disk that is created by Proxmox from a RAID10 (mirrored striped) ZFS storage. Seeing that this disk used by DSM already has redundancy from the underlying ZFS storage and also has some features similar to BTRFS like snapshots, replication, quotas, integrity protection, Is it redundant to use BTRFS instead of ext4 for a new volume in DMS? Should we use 'Basic', 'JBOD' for the storage pool in DMS? DSM only sees a single disk here. Thank you for any guidance on this issue!
