Recommended Posts

As tittle says is it possible to run xpenology on my server with 10x2tb hdd's+1tb hdd+ssd 60gb+ssd 128gb?

Al on a standard atx mobo from asrock with an amd 4quore processor?

Hope to hear some tips to get it up and running in a simple way.

Mmmm yeah, kind of.

DS3612xs can be fitted with 12HDDs by default and increase by adding an expansion box.

For what do you need those SSDs?

Be aware that you'll need 2x same model, same size SSDs for SSD cache.

No particullar need for the ssd but i have them anyway built in my define xl2 so... :grin:

 

TRying to install xpenolgy but it kees hangin on latest i have seen: attached scsi removble disk /findhstd uses absolete {some other stuff}

and then screen goes black after xxx minutes.

What can be the rproblem of not installing?

Thats normal

 

in a browser type

find.synology.com

 

wait

 

let it find your diskstation

 

walk thru the setup and upload the PAT file that came with 4.3.3810 v1.0

 

untick the creat volume button

 

let box reboot

 

if it overwrote your usb stick, just make it again and plug it back in

 

then come the fun

 

enable SSH access in control panel (or if you have a monitor and keyboard hooked up just log in as root

 

eg

 

type root

then the password you gave at install time

 

with a browser on another machine logged into your Xpenology box, open storage manager

 

select hdd management

 

you will probably only see 6 or 8 HDD's detected (hence why we didn't create a volume at install time)

 

so now you need to edit your synoinfo.conf file to reflect your running hardware

 

eg

how many USB ports you have on motherboard

how many E-SATA ports you have on motherboard

how many SATA ports you have on motherboard (not number of disks)

 

to work out the hex codes read here

It's not strange. It's working.

I saw posts on the forum with guys modifying 2-3 conf files and got the system running with more than 20 disks

Definitely.

I have 5 x 4TB, 2x 3TB, 1 x 6TB SAS He6 , 2 x 750GB ( 2.5" ), and 1x 128GB SSD + 1x 256GB SSD. The SSD are for mails, website, database, and virtual machine, while the rest are for storage and backup. That's 32TB+.
