  1. I posted this in reddit r/Xpenology but got nothing I hope somebody could help me on this... First I am pretty new to Xpenology but I have pretty good experience with general windows machines and can do pretty much anything following the instructions. I setup a small NAS using DSM 6.2.3 (DS918+ Jun's mod) Original plan was to use DSM7 with TCRP but it did not work after many tries. I only want it to run as a media server so nothing fancy is needed anyways and 6.2 seemed more stable as well. I have no interest I just want a setup that will stay and run without me constantly maintaining. I am perfectly happy with my current setup except one thing. (Current Setup) CPU: Intel G4600 - undervolted slightly to reduce power and run cool RAM: 16G DDR3 MB: Gigabyte GA-H110N (ITX) Case: 4 + 1 Bay NAS Case (Hot-swap SATA backplane installed) PCI-e: JMB585/SATA 3.0 Non-Raid 5 ports SSD: 1 x 250G Samsung 840 EVO SSD that I have left around HDD: 3 x 12T Seagate Ironwolf ST12000VN008 My MB, GA-H110N has 3 SATA ports. My case has 4 HDD hot-swap bays and one 2.5inch bay. My original plan was to only use MB SATA ports for SSD and use 4 ports on PCIE card because it would be much cleaner in terms of cable mgmt, etc. However it was not working for whatever reasons (Probably the same reason I am posting this today) and I have moved 2 drives to MB and 1 drive hooked to PCI-e card. My SSD is setup as a Volume 1 that is being used to install and running all packages and docker - installed to 2.5inch bay I wanted to 3 HDDs to be set up as raid (1 parity drive) but after completing installation, one of the three drives, stays as "Not Initialized" I thought it was nothing in the first and tried to setup a pool with three drives, but it failed multiple times. There is no issue with my SATA backplane because I have moved cables and drives around and it is always the same. So far, what I have figured out is: Connecting more than 1 drive to PCIE to SATA card will result in all the drive connected to the card not being recognized in system When only 1 drive is connected, it shows up in the system but cannot do anything Is my card faulty? or JBM585 card not supported fully with DSM 6.2.3? I purchased a different card and installed to see what happens but then all the drives(including the 2 connected to MB directly) except SSD disappeared from DSM I do not know how to change satamap post installation.. I did read some posts but nothing was exactly the same as my situation.. If the card is faulty I would like to just replace the card and go on with life, but at this point I am not so sure. what should I do? Please help! TL;DR - PCIE SATA card is not working ahhhhhh please help
