  1. Oh awesome. So not entirely something I did wrong. Many Many thanks again for all your help. I was so close to giving up.
  2. Thanks @flyride. Just to remove any other potential errors from the equation, I recreated the machine once again. I used all the commands above, with the addition of the mpt3sas driver: ./rploader.sh ext broadwellnk-7.1.0-42661 add https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pocopico/rp-ext/master/mpt3sas/rpext-index.json and then also used the following command to adjust the DiskIdxMap=1000 vi user_config.json Now it works! Seriously big thanks. I was ready to install something else, incredibly frustrating. Can you explain why the DiskIdxMap is 1000? Just looking to understand what that change does. Perhaps it can help someone else down the line understand how that string is interpreted.
  3. It seems the error is in the installer: It looks that you will need the following modules : Found IDE Controller : pciid 8086d00007111 Required Extension : No matching extension Found VGA Controller : pciid 15add00000405 Required Extension : vmwgfx Searching for matching extension for vmwgfx Found SATA Controller : pciid 15add000007e0 Required Extension : No matching extension It looks like I just need the extension, probably mpt2sas and mpt3sas
  4. I thought I did, but got a "no drives detected warning" on setup, so I started from scratch again. I actually did three times to make sure I haven't messed up. Each time has ended with it saying "no drives detected." As above, I started with these commends: ntpd -p north-america.pool.ntp.org -q ./rploader.sh update now ./rploader.sh fullupgrade ./rploader.sh serialgen DS3622xs+ ./rploader.sh satamap Here, the driver downloads but doesn't seem to initialize, so I deny the update because it doesn't see the two drives I have plugged in. ./rploader.sh satamap I ran it again immediately afterwards now that the driver is initialized. This time, I accepted the update to user_config.json cat user_config.json Just wanted to verify the configuration. ./rploader.sh build broadwellnk-7.1.0-42661 Built with the loader with broadwellnk, which this link says is the correct configuration for the DS3622xs+ we selected earlier. Then I turned off the machine and booted into SATA, where it tells me there are no disks. To play devils advocate, I reboot back into the image builder to verify things are correct. ./rploader.sh satamap The drives aren't initialized again. It had to redownload "scsi-5.10.3-tinycore64." Am I missing something?
  5. Learning more about lspci, I learned this about the RAID adapter Slot: 03:00.0 Class: RAID bus controller Vendor: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic Device: SAS2008 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2 [Falcon] SVendor: Fujitsu Technology Solutions SDevice: Device 1177 PhySlot: 160 Rev: 03
  6. Thanks for this information. I ended up deleting the VM and starting over. It seems like in my tired stew, I made a good number of mistakes and that it would be easier to start fresh than to fix the mess. My new VM has one SATA Controller for TCRP and then the LSI, that's it. Here are the commands I ran, for anyone running into similar configuration issues I had date issues that made every step thereafter broken, regardless of the valid internet connection. So from another thread, I run this and it fixes everything ntpd -p north-america.pool.ntp.org -q Standard update ./rploader.sh update now Standard upgrade ./rploader.sh fullupgrade Getting a MAC address to add to my virtual network card ./rploader.sh serialgen DS3622xs+ That's what I got to a science. It sounds like you're telling me that because my drives are listed as "Invalid slot number," that TCRP isn't able to intelligently map my drives. So I will have to manually map them. Can I use DSM 6 guides to make my satamap?

  7. Sorry. At that point it was about 3am and I was just trying to grasp what was going on. New day, although no sleep in between. This is the response when not in root. I am a beginner and this is my first xpenology, I'm not entirely clear what is going on. This is what I understand: I enter "./rploader.sh satamap now". It sees an SCSI Controller and downloads a module for it, presumably my LSI. Then it sees SATA Controller one, where TCRP lives. Then it sees SATA Controller two, where a 25GB virtual disk is sitting (do I need this if the LSI works properly? I assume not). Then it asks me how many virtual ports I want. Is this for the final Synology build? I don't understand this question Then it revisits the SCSI Controller, identifying it as LSI SAS2008. It sees 15 "unlabeled slot numbers," all with zero drives except one which is labeled as having 65 drives. I honestly have no idea what to make of this. This is likely documented and I'm happy to learn, but I don't understand what I'm looking at. I know things changed a lot for DSM 7 and not all documentation translates. tc@box:~$ ./rploader.sh satamap now Machine is VIRTUAL Hypervisor=VMware Found SCSI HBAs, We need to install the SCSI modules Downloading: scsi-5.10.3-tinycore64.tcz Connecting to repo.tinycorelinux.net (89.22.99.37:80) saving to 'scsi-5.10.3-tinycore64.tcz' scsi-5.10.3-tinycore 100% |********************************| 2632k 0:00:00 ETA 'scsi-5.10.3-tinycore64.tcz' saved scsi-5.10.3-tinycore64.tcz: OK Succesfully installed SCSI modules Found "02:03.0 VMware SATA AHCI controller" Detected 30 ports/1 drives.

  8. Hey everyone! I actually got my Xpenology fully booted thanks to this virtualization guide and this general install guide, but neither provided me enough details to get my raid card active. To begin, here are my specs: VM or BareMetal : VM - ESXi 6.7U3 Hardware (Motherboard/CPU) : Gigabyte M370M DS3H / Intel 8400 Storage-Controller: 1x LSI SAS 9211-8i (HBA in IT mode) Hot Plug/Hot Swap Applied : Yes version of rploader.sh : 0.8.0.3 Platform (DS3622xsp/DS918+/DS920+/DVA3221/DS1621+/DS3615xs/DS3617xs) : 3622xs+ Platform Version (6.2.4/7.0.1/7.1) : 7.1 Platform Revision (42218/42661/42661-U1) : 42661 Current Status : Boots to kernel, but with virtualized disk. As the virtualized guide suggested, I have two SATA Controllers, one with TCRP and the other is just a virtual disk. I also have my LSI 9211-8i in there in IT Mode. lspci -kkq reveals: 0b:00.0 RAID bus controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS2008 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2 [Falcon] (rev 03) Subsystem: Fujitsu Technology Solutions HBA Ctrl SAS 6G 0/1 [D2607] So its registered by the machine, I just need it initialized by Synology. I read about drivers in the guide linked above, so I ran the following commands: ./rploader.sh ext broadwellnk-7.1.0-42661 add https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pocopico/rp-e xt/master/mpt2sas/rpext-index.json ./rploader.sh ext broadwellnk-7.1.0-42661 add https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pocopico/rp-e xt/master/mpt3sas/rpext-index.json I didn't know which had the driver I needed, and frankly I didn't see any negatives by doing both, so I did both. Now I get this, basically saying it sees the controller, but that is has zero drives. It is also saying that a single SCSI/HBA has 63 drives. I have one drive connected to the SAS: root@box:/home/tc# ./rploader.sh satamap now Machine is VIRTUAL Hypervisor=VMware Found SCSI HBAs, We need to install the SCSI modules Don't run this as root.

[Yy/Nn] n OK remember to update manually by editing user_config.json file I seemingly have all the pieces here, just need some help putting it altogether. I plan on connecting eight drives absolute max, and have four drives in the short term. For testing, there is currently one drive plugged into my LSI card with a SAS cable. I would really appreciate some guidance.
  9. Hey everyone. My coworker got me a free QNAP but it's too slow, so I am rebuilding my ESXi server for low power since NAS functions can do the majority of my desired functions. So..here I am
