XPEnology w/ 24 drives and areca card possible?

Recommended Posts

I have a norco 24 bay rackmount case full of 4TB drives (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811219038)

and an Areca ARC-1284Ml-24MM R 24 port SAS raid card

 

Wondering if I would be able to use the XPEnology software on this setup? I saw other folks mentioning they weren't able to get more than 6 drives to show up. Not sure if I can present the whole thing as a single array via the hardware raid card and have XPEnology pick it up.

 

Any thoughts? I'd really like to be able to use the synology software as the chromecast support makes things play very nicely in my environment.

 

I can always go the straight NFS / Linux server route, but I think this would be preferred if I can make it work.
