N54L esata port on nanoboot 5.0.3.1 4493 U3

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm now switched from gnoboot to nanoboot and went so far quite well:-) The only thing I did not manage is my esata-port. This worked most recently with gnoboot 10.4. Under 10.5 it no longer worked. Unfortunately, now even with nanobott :sad:

 

Her is my config:

 

n54l with modified bios (latest version)

2 hard drives

Perc H310 (cross flash to LSI 9211-8i) as HBA / IT mode with 4 hard drives

 

So I have currently 6 hard drives and 2 empty bays = 8 bays

I do not use the ODD-port

The esata port is to be used as a backup-volume, currently a hard drive is connected but not shown up as internal or external drive...

 

edit the Syninfo has brought nothing except thar harddrives disappear from the LSI HBA ...

 

Can any one help me? What do I have to configure where that my esata can be used as an external connection? Thank you so much!

Hi there,

You will have to edit the /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf file to reflect your hardware

 

Normal for a Microserver (without HBA) would be

 

 

 

esataportcfg="0x10"
usbportcfg="0xfc0"
internalportcfg="0x2f"

which looks like
0000 0000 0001 0000 < esata
0000 0000 0010 1111 < internalports
0001 1111 1100 0000 < usbports

 

notice looking down the columns (of the 3 rows), that there is not a 1 in the same column

 

so your going to have to work around those values, but adding in an extra 8 ports for the H310 (eg adding an extra 8 x "1's" into the mix to the left of the usbports "1's") .... with each "1" representing a port

 

at a quick guess I recon

 

esataportcfg="0x10"
usbportcfg="0xfc0"
internalportcfg="0x1fe02f"

which looks like
0000 0000 0000 0000 0001 0000 < esata
0001 1111 1110 0000 0010 1111 < internalports
0000 0000 0001 1111 1100 0000 < usbports
