  1. Finally decided to go from 7.0 to 7.1 today on my Gen8 bare metal and it's been a steep learning curve!


    I now know a lot more about satamaps than I ever wanted too.


    Quick question though - I'm using ds3615xs because I thought my CPU - e3-1220v2 -couldn't handle anything newer - but I've seen some people using the 3622xs+ build on the Gen8.


    How is this possible? Can I just run through TCRP loader again, and select the 3622 instead?

  2. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL
    - DSM version prior update: DSM 7.1-42661
    - Loader version and model: Tinycore Redpill DS3615xs
    - Using custom extra.lzma: NO
    - Installation type: BAREMETAL – HP Microserver Gen8


    Notes: straight from 7.1 to U4. Ran postupdate via TCRP SSH - seemed to think I was on U3 but still worked. Weirdly rebooted back into TCRP loader again, so had to restart and manually select DSM.

    However when uploading  the pat file(ds3617xs_42218.pat) I always getting an error telling me the file is probably defect , while uploading to the NAS? I arleady have replaced the USB key and checked the PID/VID. Nothing was working.....


    I'm not sure the CPU in the Gen8 can run the ds3617xs - you need to use the 3615xs instead I think. Works for me anyway. Think you may have to build the loader again as well.

  4. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL

    - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 3

    - Loader version and model: RedPill DS3615xs v7.0.1-42218

    - Using custom extra.lzma: No idea, so gonna say NO

    - Installation type: BAREMETAL - HP Microserver Gen8 (Intel Xeon E3-1260L)


    Notes - used RedPill Tinycore loader.

  5. Full install (migrate) from 5.2 to 6.1.2-15132 successful on baremetal Gen8.


    It wasn't straightforward though - the first time through I couldn't find the DS at all. Restarted, still nothing. Reinstalled the same version a second time, and it worked.

  6. Building from one to two drives would just mirror the first drive, then adding the third would then wipe that second drive and rebuild as raid5. Send like a real faff.


    I've got everything backed up, so I'm going to try going straight to 3 disks. Fingers crossed.

  7. I have a Microserver Gen8 up and running with a single 2TB in SHR. I want to add two more identical drives. Do I just add them both and build straight to a SHR raid 5 array, or do I have to do one drive at a time?
