Enable write cache WD Red NAS doesnt save

Recommended Posts

I have a N54L with a 2TB WD Red NAS installed. I have installed dsm 5.0-4493 installed and working well.

 

I have enabled write cache in the N54L BIOS. I am trying to enable it on the HDD inside DSM but it doesnt seem to save it for some reason. The checkbox goes back to unchecked state once I change tabs.

 

Has anyone faced this issue?

I suspect it doesn't do anything within Xpenology. Under ESXi, write performance with the BIOS write cache disabled is virtually non-existent. With it enabled, write performance matches a bare metal install (about 80MB/sec over gigabit). Why are you trying to enable it within Xpenology?
