  1. So I solved my own problem FYI for anyone having the same issue: Make sure the "synoboot.vmdk" is set to a "Virtual Device Node: SATA controller 0 / SATA (0:0)" Once I did this the "Health Info" tab worked and now I also can see the "S.M.A.R.T Info" tab. Teaches me for building my VMX from scratch
  2. I am migrating over to DSM 6.1 with jun's loader and ESXi 6.5 and passing through a 9211-8i, but I noticed SMART info is not passing through. When I select "Storage Manager - Health Info" I get a "Not Available" message. Nothing shows in "Storage Manager - Logs" either. Strange thing is both "smartctl --info /dev/sdb" and "synodisk --info /dev/sdb" both connect and return the correct information for the 1 disk I'm testing. I did notice in "/var/log/messages" the following error every time I select "Storage Manager - Health Info": DS3615xs synoscgi_SYNO.Storage.CGI.Smart_1_get_health_info[19566]: disk/disk_current_health_get.c:46 SYNODiskXmlErrCtGet failed on /dev/sdb Wondering if I'm missing a setting or config change that will allow a LSI 9211-8i and pass-through to work correctly with DSM 6.1? Thoughts?
  3. For ESXi users, does anyone know how to change the Syno Boot VMDK from SATA 0:0 to another port? Wanted to set the boot drive to a different port so that in DSM the data drives show up a Port/Slot 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. Right now disks start at Port/Slot 2. I tried moving the boot VMDK to other SATA ports and even IDE and SCSI 0;0, but the install fails. I might be missing something simple. Thanks for all the hard work and effort from @jun and others on this project
  4. Have Trust Level set to "Any Publisher", Patched 7.1-4152 loads fine, but license count still shows 2 Get these "Warnings" when patching:
  5. Gaendalf, Any chance you could upload 0.6 to mega.nz please? 0.6.1 does not work with 7.1-4152 or 7.2.2-4649. Thanks
  6. I apologize but English is my first and only language Tried a Google translate just in case I missed something, in case uploadduck.com was "code" for something else but I'm unable to download the file from http://uploadduck.com/SJ3 don't know if it's a location issue or if http://uploadduck.com/ no longer exists but is there a mirror available or could it be uploaded to mega.nz please?
  7. Does anyone know how to disable S.M.A.R.T monitoring in XPEonology? I'm running on ESXi 6.0 with RDM disks and the /var/log/message file is filling up with the following: SmartDataRead(108) read value /dev/sda fail disk_temperature_get.c:75 read value /dev/sda fail SmartFirmAndSerialRead(156) AtaSmartFirmAndSerialRead fail I do not need S.M.A.R.T monitoring within DSM since I'm running on an LSI card on ESXi with it's own monitoring. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks for all your great work.

  10. Does anyone know how to verify via SSH that the correct value for "Advanced LUN allocation unit size" has been set on a volume? I have created 2 volumes on a test ESXi XPEnology install, both volumes are 64GB, I have set one volume to "4KB (Optimized for Windows ODX)" and the other to "8KB (Optimized for VMware VAAI)", but for some reason I cannot find a command line to verify that these settings have been applied, I have tried the following commands so far: blockdev --getbsz /dev/sdX blockdev --getss /dev/sdX cat /sys/block/sdX/queue/physical_block_size cat /sys/block/sdX/queue/logical_block_size cat /sys/block/sdX/queue/minimum_io_size cat /sys/block/sdX/queue/optimal_io_size cat /sys/block/sdX/alignment_offset I have tried the above commands on sda, sdb, md0, md1, md2 and md3. All commands provide the same numbers or am I missing something obvious. Thanks
  11. Anybody know how to or have a step-by-step walk-through on adding/updating a driver in XPEnology? I would like to specifically update the driver for my LSI 9265-8i RAID Controller to the latest version available from LSI, but have no idea how to compile and update XPEnology/XPEnoboot with an updated driver. Can it be done or can anyone provide step-by-step instructions please?
  12. Does anyone know if it is possible or how to disable specific drivers/modules from loading in XPEnoboot? I would like to disable unused drivers in my XPEnology install, drivers/modules such as "sg" and "e100" fail on boot every time and it would just be easier if I could disable them from loading at all and any other drivers I don't need loaded. Thanks
  13. Wondering if anyone has installed or know what is involved to adding support for LSI MegaRAID Storage Manager or the SMIS Provider to XPEnology? LSI/Avago has a Linux 64-bit MSM http://www.lsi.com/downloads/Public/RAID%20Controllers/RAID%20Controllers%20Common%20Files/15.03.01.00_Linux-64_MSM.gz and SMIS Provider http://www.lsi.com/downloads/Public/RAID%20Controllers/RAID%20Controllers%20Common%20Files/00.55.00.02_SMIS_Provider_Linux.zip available for download, I'm just not sure how to add it to XPEnology. I currently have XPEnology installed on ESXi 6.0 and have my 9265-8i setup as a passthrough device to XPEnology, but in order to do any array management etc I have to shutdown XPEnology and pass the 9265-8i to a Windows Server 2012 R2 server and use MSM within Windows, then move the controller back to XPEnology. It would be ideal if this can be done within XPEnology, at the very least having the SMIS Provider installed in XPEnology would allow a remote connection from a Windows Server via MSM without having to shutdown XPEnology. Anybody?
