Help with x540-t2 10gbe in 918+


Recommended Posts

Im having no luck at all getting my 10gbe cards recognized by DSM.  

 

 i've had the exact card working on the 3615 image but it wont work on either of my 918+ setups.

 

 

These  x540-t2   are supported OOB from synologies page here so im not sure whats up.

 

Shouldn't this card (x540-t2)  work OOB without driver ext on ds918+ 1.04b image?

 

Or do i need to install the driver extension?  Any help would be seriously appreciated

Yes the 10g works bare metal and no I didn’t have to add a driver. I am on 1.04b 918+ 5.21 with hardware transcoding working for plex on 390z chipset and i3-8100 cpu   I have not yet tried the 6.22

Try with any fresh hdd and the new flash, if it'll work - get your position to update for your master system.

Yup, I have a lot of spare gear to test with. After being down trying to get the 9600K CPU hw transcoding working, I am enjoying a nice stable working system for a while :)

 

I am hoping the drivers get updated to work with the 9600K CPU, and that the turbo mode issue is resolved at some point, but till then, the i3-8100 is working remarkably well.

Could you tell me is your Intel 10 GBe Networkadapter wokring with a fresh install from DSM when only the 10Gbe card is connected??

thank you very mucb 

 

The reason for this Question is i have Mellanox 3 Networkadapter  and for a fresh DSM Install i need to connect both Networkadapters my mellanox and my intel on Board Networkadapter with Loader 1.02b and DSM 15284 DSM6.1 alone with the mellanox Networkadapter the server is not found in the network when the installations done it is working with the mellanox card alone

I had issues with DSM not recognising my x550 NICs onboard my Supermicro MB.

If I'm not wrong the module of that NIC is basee on igb drivers.

this change worked for me:

 

 

Try modifying the grub file as following if it doesn't work:

In the gub file change the following line:
Code: Select all
initrd $img/ramdisk.lzma $img/$extra_initrd
to: 
Code: Select all
initrd $img/$extra_initrd $img/ramdisk.lzma

Hey flyride, 

It's been a while since I read the spec of 918+ Xpen dsm but quick question about 10gbe.

 

I Have 2 918+ 1.04b baremetal all ssd arrays- both with pcie x1 intel nic to router. Then, I have x540-t2 in both units. Not using on board Realtek nic. 

I Have the x540-t2's direct connected but showing only 1 network interface in dsm for the x540-t2 cards, it's not showing both. For example I want to link aggregate and bind. 

 

I recall reading something about a max lan port limitation for Xpen 918+ but not sure,i forgot. 

 

  • Is this most likely caused by me not using an extra.lzma?

          And/Or

  • Would this be because I only listed 1 nic in config when setting up the dsm usb drive? 
  • To solve this would I need to remake the dsm usb drive but add the extra.lzma

 

I'm trepidatious to remake usb drives because there's important data on 1,backed up to the other.
