Hi guys, For some of you who wish to expand btrfs Syno volume after disk space increased. Before: df -Th btrfs fi show mdadm --detail /dev/md2 SSH commands: syno_poweroff_task -d mdadm --stop /dev/md2 parted /dev/sda resizepart 3 100% mdadm --assemble --update=devicesize /dev/md2 /dev/sda3 mdadm --grow /dev/md2 --size=max reboot btrfs filesystem resize max /dev/md2 After: df -Th btrfs fi show mdadm --detail /dev/md2 Voila Kall
Hello, running DSM 6.1 (jun's loader) on Asus A88X-Plus/USB 3.1 with AMD A series A10-7860K CPU, 8 Gb RAM and expanded from 8 disks to 10, system is configured as RAID 6. As the motherboard natively only supports 8 disks I added a PCI-E sata controller Highpoint Rocket 640L. I added the 2 disks to the external sata controller. The system appears to have succesfully switched from 8 to 10 disks, but never fully worked,as the system partition appears to be faulty of the 2 added disks. Re-installing DSM did not work either, everything ok until I get a timeout when writing the config files (using network cable, not wireless). The 2 new disks are kicked out for some reason and my system falls down from 10 disk to 8 (RAID 6, so this is critical). After a reboot they are visible again, I can add them and parity check runs but ultimately fails (data ok/system partition fails). Yet the drives don't contain any errors, from extended disk checks from both synology as well as other disk checking software. At this moment the x-th parity check is running after adding the disks again but I fear that this will be yet a futile attempt. What could be wrong ? Is the external sata controller not supported ? Other ideas ? Any tricks I can do to "force" a correct and full system partition re-installation ? Many thanks ! Kind regards, Cooled Spirit.
