possibly stupid question

Recommended Posts

Does DSM support IDE drives at all? I haven't got an IDE disk other than the cdrom, which I boot my bare metal from, and adding an ide to a VM doesn't get recognised, but I'm not sure if this is due to the VM, the nanoboot, or just that DSM doesn't "do" IDE.

so here is the wierd thing: I just added an IDE adapter & an IDE drive to a VM. when I restarted the machine it shows up as /dev/sdm.

I then did

sfdisk -M0 /dev/sdm

Which sets it to Dos Style Partition.

Then it shows up in the GUI as eSata, but unformatted, so I formatted it as ext4.

Now it appears as satashare1-1 in filestation, and I can read and write to it.

 

Is this somehow peculiar to virtualbox?

i was able to run xpenology on bare metal with 2 IDE + 1 sata disks with no problem. just 1 of IDE disks still got overheated, but i think its not related with xpenology. DSM 5.0-4493

I'm curious so I just ordered an adapter IDE to SATA on ebay for 10 dollars. I'll tell you if it'll work as soon as i get it :wink:
