  1. Schnapps - Are you no longer using Hyper-v in windows? Straight up baremetal? I have mine since 2014 and On a hyper-v under windows 2012 R2. It's still on xpenoboot and DSM 5.2..... I probably wont do bare metal the way you are doing unless there are some extremely good reasons.
  2. Still trying to optimize my network speed. It's still only going as fast as 50MB/s to 60MB/s to write. Right now the Xpenology on hyper-v is running SHR with 2 disk. I tried lan speed test and still yields about 400-500mbps only. In DSM settings, it shows as HALF-DUPLEX under lan. Any reason why this wont show up as a full-duplex? There's also another issue of the transfers seeing a saw-tooth pattern, high then low then high over and over. The follow transfer was done on host machine to hyper-v Xpenology from SSD to the SATA 6tb shr (mirror with 1 disk).
  3. I have only 500gb of data on the 6TB disk. I found within DSM the status of expansion. After about 24 hrs. Okay totally done. >30hours. so slow.
  4. Quick question for you gents and ladies, I just got my second 6TB drive, originally running 1x Segate 6TB in single disk mode within XPEnology under windows 2012 R2 hyper-v. Now I got a second 6TB drive and added it successfully. Now I am in the process of expanding the volume with SHR. How long does it take to do this volume? because I've waited about 24hrs already. What is the proper math to calculate this? It's currently hooked up to my PCI-e SATA II card (yep II) and not the Asrock Q1900-ITX mobo SATA (reserving it for my SSD and what not).
  5. (plex) I can cast 1 stream at 1080p, but when I want to run more than 1 transcodes (we own 2 ipads, 1 chromecsat, and a nexus 7 (and galaxy s4 and note 3). I just want to make it so it wont have to transcode. Also I hate it when it transcodes, it loses the original quality, even when it supposedly transcodes only audio stream, and direct stream the video - i can still tell there's a difference. I've tested this with samsung's smart-tv app (zero transcode) and force transcode like chromecast, ps4 app, or forced transcode by using embedded subtitles. I think when it comes to a tv client, best is probably a simple low powered HTPC. Like schnapps said, that thin client looks good, and I'd probably go for something a little cheaper @ same size. I have many 1080p in remux that's why the bitrate is so high. Also started to look into openelec/kodi with some plex plugin. I am running windows server 2012 as my main/host OS. So if i wanted to plug it in, it'd just do without any issue. What host are you running?
  6. Schnapps - You are the reason why I went Asrock Q1900-itx/windows/xpenology as hyper-v. =p So far running beautifully. Now i'm thinking maybe I should use this as an HTPC as well since I have trouble streaming to TV through chromecast, ps4 app, or even the samsung tv app(slow as a snail with 30 sec GUI loading)
  7. I dont think anyone has been successful at ESXi on this mobo. I may be wrong though. That is why I went the Windwos Server 2012 R2 route.
  8. What transfers do you get right now? Where are you sending between? I had an issue transfering from my windows 7 desktop to my windows 2012 server R2 + hyper-v xpe. The speed was about 30-40MB/s. I disabled a bunch of things on the NIC on server side(i narrowed it to the server side) and my speed is back to 70-90MB/s (about 700mbps with iperf)
  9. XPEnoboot didn't work for me. I was able to get to the update/migrate option, loaded all the drivers/modules and on login prompt. Tried launching syno asistant and I get for Status: Configuation lost I am using harddrive passthrough... wonder why I'm failing. Ah figured out why it wasn't worked. SCSI hyper-v hdd's is not supported. Tried setting it to IDE but still no go. I have revert back to DSM 5.0 update 2 after a series of reboot and reinstalls. Thank god my data is intact.
  10. My edits were done in Windows Server 2012 R2's NIC settings. I have only 1 harddrive for now, but the transfers were done with iperf AND to both window's server and XPEnology. Server resides on a OCZ Arc 100 240gb SSD and the XPE resides on passthrough seagate 6tb hdd.
  11. HI nickjames, I have the case you're asking about. The back of the case has a fan switch controller. It takes a molex 4 pin power to feed it. and in the controller has 3 connectors for your case fans. So all you really need is 1 4pin molex from your PSU and just plug the case fans into the controller. Easy. ****************************************************************************************************************** Second order of business. I reviewed my gigabit lan speed problem. A reminder of the pertinent: Asrock Q1900-ITX Windows Server 2012 R2(R2) + Hyper-V Xpenology(Xpe) Gigabit lan from mobo to unmanaged gigabit switch then to the rest of my appliances like desktop and other NAS. Transfer speeds: Desktop <-> NAS 110MB/s either way (full gigabit) Desktop <-> R2 70MB/s Desktop <-> XPE 70MB/s R2 <-> XPE 70MB/s!!! (it's essentially on the same machine but going from host to vm through ethernet? Maybe the gigabit is used by each direction and become 500mbit each way? no clue NAS <-> R2 70MB/s NAS <-> XPE 70MB/s I googled for few hours tonight on this Realtek RTL8111GR or just realtek in general, also in connection with Windows Server OS's. Tried many tricks, including the auto-neogotiate, left it back to auto in the end. Updated my drivers to the latest realtek.com/download one The trick that worked better for me is: within the properties of the NIC, i disabled all the excess features except flow control(left it alone). things like ARP offloading, energy efficient ethernet, green, interrupt moderation, checksum offland, large send offlads, NS offload, tcp and udp checksum offloads, wake's and WOL. Pretty much disabled EVERYTHING except Flow Control. Now I get(iperf tcp blocks 64 and monitored through NetWorx(windows 7) and server 2012's resource monitor): Desktop <-> R2 118MB/s Desktop <-> XPE 100MB/s NAS <-> R2 85MB/s NAS <-> XPE 112MB/s Maybe it's voodoo... but I was tired of seeing 40-60MB/s transfers when i know it should reach 100-110MB/s. Final testing with windows transferring a 2gb mkv file was ranging from 77-90MB/s in a saw tooth pattern.
  12. Are those 3TB empty? Have you tried making the drives passthrough by doing what xpenology.nl's guide says? make the drives offline in Windows Disk management. Then boot up XPE and see your DSM recognizes them?
  13. I have the Q1900-ITX you're talking about and yes it can transcode ONE stream of 1080p 20mbps. But if you want it to do more than 1, it won't be powerful enough. I tested it on a 14gb 1080p movie file onto a Nexus 7 with forced transcode(subtitles) and an ipad 3(transcode down to 4mbps quality). It works with one device, but once the second one starts, it stutters and lags behind.

    I read some people were able to make USB work by changing usb options in bios from "auto" to "Enable".
  15. Thanks, I set the server to 1gb, working great! Now I can use the ram for other hyper-v
