I currently have two 2TB WD Red Drives and a 1TB WD Blue.  I am running RAID 1 currently but I can't seem to find an option to switch to SHR.  I assume SHR needs 2 disks minimum?  I planned on purchasing 2 more 2TB Drives.  Also, if I had two different xpenology boxes, one working with SHR and the other a clean install with both boxes matching for software level, can I migrate SHR from one box to another?  I know you can migrate Raid arrays (1, 5, etc) from one machine to the next.


I tried the below method, but it would not allow me to write to the file.


SHR on dsm6:

edit synoinfo.conf located in /etc.defaults/synoinfo. conf


comment out / delete



then add

support_syno_hybrid_raid ="yes"


Software: DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 1
