  1. Or it is tied to QuickConnect? Also do all Synology mobile apps tie to QuickConnect now. I cannot seem to make any of them work even on LAN.
  2. I determined the SHR volume is beyond recovering now. I just hope I won't have more trouble restore from back up. Still need to re-establish the music and video library. the computer is a Lenovo ts440, with 5 internal sata ports and 8 hotswap HDD. Last time I dealt with 12 drive limit was before using ESXi VM. If I have remembered that two minutes earlier, I shouldn't have any trouble by now.
  3. I have run DSM 5.2 for quite a while. Initially on HP microserver, then on ESXi. upgraded a couple of times(from dsm4). didn't have issue. This time, I upgraded from 5.2 to 6.1, also from ESXi to directly run on Lenovo ts440. It took me a while to make upgrade and migration work because I initially downloaded wrong loader image. When it finally worked, I noticed one of the 6 disks that make up my primary volume is missing. files are still fine though, but the volume was in 'degrade' state. Before I realized it was because DS3615 support upto 12 internal drives by defaul
  4. did import the new certificate, no luck. in the end, the solution is very simple: Go to 'Package Station', click the 'setting' tab, and change the 'allow installation of package published by' to 'any publisher' It is odd xpenology does not recognize the publisher's certificates.
  5. Hi, I am running DSM 5.2-5565 Update 1 on ESXi 5.5. It was migrated from HP N40L. Only recently I noticed that I cannot install new package or update existing packages. For example, when I try to update the "audio station", it downloads installer fine, but fails during installation with error message: "Failed to update "Audio Station", This package is published by an unknown publisher." Although the audio station is developed by Synology. I cannot install new packages either. Always have error: "Failed to install ****" Anyone has encountered same issue? How to fix it?
  6. It is surely big. But it will be in the basement anyway.
  7. Seems that there are plenty of older servers with dual Xeon CPU on ebay. They are priced $250~$350 shipped. For example this one that has dual L5520 CPU, 16GB or ram, 12x HDD bay (6 connected) for $335 shipped. Is there reason that it is a bad idea to add my own 2~4TB hdd and install Xpenology on it? thanks!
  8. I am eyeing this motherboard with 14 sata /sas ports: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SL7-F-O (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4680) Newegg has good price on it right now.

  10. Hi, wondering if anyone tried this motherboard "SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SL7-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600". It looks like reasonably priced, with features suitable to NAS. What interests me is that it has total 14 sata/sas ports on board: 4 x SATA 3.0Gb/s + 2 x SATA 6.0Gb/s 8x SAS2 (6Gbps) ports via LSI 2308 It also has two Gbit LAN port (Intel I210-AT) I am thinking of using it for a custom Xpenology build. But want to know first if these hardware are supported? Also what (inexpensive) CPU would you recommend? Thanks!
  11. Just saw this: Disabled SATA IDE combined mode in BIOS, still no good. Sigh.. EDIT: while the booting message still says 4 out 5 drives active, the 'missing' drive actually shows up in the storage manager. I am rebuilding the array.
  12. I have the same problem when using gnoboot 10.5: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3114 Have you found a solution yet? I am still searching...
  13. put two lines in /etc/rc.local: insmod /lib/modules/pata_acpi.ko insmod /lib/modules/pata_amd.ko after reboot, the drive is still missing. My BIOS has been flashed with mod. So these drivers are not needed after all?
  14. Indeed, from the 10.5 changelog: So I lost the 5th SATA port and the on board ESATA port on the other hand: And my sandisk 5-drive esata case finally worked under Xpenology. Now, how do I "manually insmod these drivers"?
  15. EDIT: I have seen two other cases that gnoboot 10.5 + N40L misses SATA drive that is on the CDROM port. by using pata_amd pata_acpi and disable SATA/IDE combined mode, it seems to be working now :EDIT Not sure if anyone else has this problem, I lost the 5th SATA drive after upgrading to DSM 5.0. The drive is still visible in BIOS, but gnoboot says '4 out of 5' drives exist, and storage manager shows only 4 drives too. neither drive on the esata port nor the 5th sata (optical drive sata) drive show up. I know the drive is fine, because I swapped the 5th diver to slot 1, and it w
