Hello Guys, I've recently installed DS918+ on ESXi 6.7, but i have problems with passthrough. I have Asrock J3455-ITX board which have builed in second sata controller (Asmedia). For storage I'm using two 8TB WD drives that were took out of MyBook external drives. I set Asmedia controller to be passthrough to VM with DSM, but once I create Volume on RAID1 pool, I start getting write errors on drives. I tried also external PCIE-X sata controller on Marvell chipset and got the same issue. Errors starts to appear once I'm writing to drives. Issue does not appear once drives are RDMs. Below is a screenshot for reference. Some text is in Polish, but you get the idea Did some one of you has some simmilar issues of know what can be the reason of this
Hi, As you now when using a virtual environment to run the XPEnoloy the SMART is missing. The only change to run it is pass the Disk Controller to the VM using I/O passthrough. However, using the VMware ESXi with the Physical RDM, all SMART commands work inside a Linux VM. So, the conclusion is that the tools inside the DSM refuses to enable SMART when a non-conformant controller is detected. Then, to enable the SMART inside a VM the kernel needs to hack the identification of the Virtual Controller. As I feel this can be done inside the Jun's Loader. So, from here I like to request support for this. Please, consider it! Regards.
Hi, I've just got an XPEnology install up and running with Jun's loader under a Proxmox hypervisor. Everything seems to be working fine, persisting across reboots etc, but I'm just wondering where the DSM configuration data is stored? I have 4 SATA disks configured for direct passthrough and a RAID5 volume placed on them, and I boot the system using the synoboot.img from the loader. But where is all the DSM data stored? I can't see the synoboot.img changing and I don't know where else it would go.
I have Proxmox 5.1. Xpenology 1.02b loader; DSM6.1.4 Update 5. Intel onbard (AHCI) SATA controller passthrough. I have 3 SSD in RAID0 mode. What I notice is, the write performance on SSD is terrible. I've try to tweak Proxmox, and the Xpeno VM, but nothing seems to help. My VM config: args: -device 'piix3-usb-uhci,addr=0x18' -drive 'id=synoboot,file=/var/lib/vz/images/100/synoboot_jun2b_virtIO.img,if=none,format=raw' -device 'usb-storage,id=synoboot,drive=synoboot' bios: ovmf boot: 4 cores: 4 hostpci0: 00:17.0,pcie=1 machine: q35 memory: 6144 name: DSM6.x net0: virtio=00:11:32:xxxxxxx,bridge=vmbr0 net1: virtio=00:11:32:xxxxxxx,bridge=vmbr1 numa: 1 ostype: l26 scsihw: virtio-scsi-pci serial0: socket smbios1: uuid=7fda6843-8411-473f-91a5-xxxxxxxxx sockets: 1 I've tried to passthrough the VM without q35 machine type, and without PCE=1. Write performance is the same. What's strange is, the write performance was really good back in October, when I was still on Proxmox 5.0. So I want to ask everyone, how's your SATA passthrough performance?
