Initial configuration of XPEnology

Recommended Posts

I have a few questions about the initial configuration and installation of XPEnology:

 

I have four HDDs available for my N54L:

250GB

2*3TB WD Red (Raid 1)

1*1TB Backup

 

1. On which drive would you install your OS on?

2. Which drive is the best to install the packages on?

3. Should I install everything on the raid volumes?

4. What is the best configuration if I had to reinstall/upgrade XPEnology?

 

Thank you in advance

You can't customize your installation. Synology upgrade script will format any drives it finds, unless drive is already formatted according to it's standard version (i.e. /dev/md0 - root, /dev/md1 - swap, /dev/md2+ - data).

Thank you for the fast reply.

 

But one question remains:

2. Which drive is the best to install the packages on?

When I want to install new Software on my NAS the DSM asks where I want to install it.

 

i.e.: My Installation of XPEnology is corrupt and I want to have a fresh install.

Do I loose all of my installed Packages?
