Supermicro X11SSL-CF with Xeon v31240-v6 for DSM 6.1 or 6.2


Recommended Posts

I notice that several users claim to be using the Supermicro X11SSL-CF mbrd with Xpenology and Jun's loaders, I can't seem to get it to work.

Whilst I had success creating a DS3615_6.2 boot loader for the Supermicro X10SL7-F mbrd (which has the same i210-AT network controller as the X11SLL-CF (X10SL7-F has 6 x SATA (2xSATA3 & 4xSATA2), 8xSAS 6Gb/s, 1xSATADOM; X11SSL-CF has 6xSATA3, 8xSAS 12Gb/s, 2xSuperDOM), I have not been successful in creating a suitable DS3615_6.2 bootloader for the new board. With Jun's loader 1.03b, the system displays the boot message from the bootloader, but Synology Assistant is not finding any evidence of the system on the network. Both the X10SL7-F and the X11SSL-CF boards use the Intel i210-AT dual Gigabit LAN.  Specs for the two boards are as follows:

X10SL7-F Mbrd

    Single socket H3 (LGA 1150) supports
    Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v3/v4, 4th gen.
    Core i3, Pentium, Celeron processors 2. Intel® C222 Express PCH 3. Up to 32GB DDR3 ECC 1600MHz
    UDIMMs in 4 sockets 4. Dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports via
    Intel® i210AT 5. 2x SATA (6Gbps), 4x SATA (3Gbps) 6. 8x SAS2 (6Gbps) via Broadcom 2308 7. Expansion slots: 1x PCI-E 3.0 x8
    (in x16), 1x PCI-E 2.0 x4 (in x8) 8. 2x USB 3.0 (1 Type-A + 1 via header)
    6x USB 2.0 (4 rear + 2 via header) 9. Integrated IPMI 2.0 with KVM and
    Dedicated LAN 10. SATA DOM power connector support 11. VGA D-sub connector, TPM header


    Single socket H4 (LGA 1151) supports Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v6/v5, Intel® 7th/6th Gen. Core i3 series,
    Intel® Celeron® and Intel® Pentium®

    Intel® C232 chipset

    Up to 64GB Unbuffered ECC UDIMM DDR4 2400MHz; 4 DIMM slots

    Expansion slots:
      1 PCI-E 3.0 x8 (in x16),
      1 PCI-E 3.0 x4 (in x8),
      1 PCI-E 3.0 x1

    Dual GbE LAN with Intel® i210-AT

    6 SATA3 (6Gbps) via C232; RAID 0, 1, 5, 10

    8 SAS3 (12Gbps) via Broadcom® 3008 SW controller; RAID 0, 1, 10

    I/O: 1 VGA, 2 COM, TPM header

    2 SuperDOM with built-in power

    5 USB 3.0 (2 rear, 2 via header(s), 1 Type A),
    6 USB 2.0 (2 rear, 4 via header(s))


Any advice anyone can provide on this subject would be much appreciated.  I am particularly interested in the following issues:

1.  How the 2xSuperDOMs on the X11SSL-CF need to be addressed in the Grub.cfg (if at all relevant);
2.  Necessary modifications in the following lines in Grub.cfg:

   set extra_args_3615=''
   #set extra_args_3615='earlycon=uart8250,io,0x3f8,115200n8 earlyprintk loglevel=15'


   set common_args_3615='syno_hdd_powerup_seq=0 HddHotplug=0 syno_hw_version=DS3615xs vender_format_version=2 console=ttyS0,115200n8 withefi elevator=elevator quiet syno_port_thaw=1'


   set sata_args='sata_uid=1 sata_pcislot=5 synoboot_satadom=1 DiskIdxMap=0C SataPortMap=1 SasIdxMap=0'


I would very much appreciate any advice/guidance from those with more experience and success in this matter.  All my efforts to date with the new board have proven fruitless.

1. i think you don't need to change the setting.

Now i use the MB  ASRock Rack E3C236D4U. it also built a SATA DOM and i don't change any setting in the Grub.cfg.

i use a lsi 9217 to connect SAS disk and my disk slots have 16(8-->MB+8-->LSI HBA) (i have change the value in the etc/synoinfo.conf and /etc.default/synoinfo.conf ).
