Adding non array disk


Recommended Posts



Do any of the programmers out there know if it would it be possible to:


1) Add disks outside the main array without the main array being repeatedly woken up. (DSM seems to access smart files every few minutes unless the drive is added to a volume)


2) Install programs to run from this disk

Hit a brick wall I think.


Got a drive installed/formatted/mounted outside the array and verified that the array drives still sleep. Great!


Have managed to get plex running from a drive outside the array and can see in the hibernation debug logs that the files plex is opening are outside the array on the new drive.


But it still wakes the array when accessing those files.


Sounds like fundamental limitation of synology file system?


Do the technical Guru's know anything about this?!
