Installing on a HP ProLiant DL360e Gen8

Recommended Posts

Hello, i am unable to find the nas on the find.synology.com tool (i have also tried the desktop one).

Do i need Intel nics for it to work? i have a 4 nic HP card.

 

I believe this to be the card i have. HPE NC365T 4-port Ethernet

 

Kind Regards,

Charlie.

cpu? from the hpe specs it seems to be ivy bridge, to old for 918+ (loader 1.04b)

loader version and type?

 

i guess  you will have to use 1.03b 3615 or 3617 (dsm 6.2) and keep in mind that it will not work as uefi, it needs csm/legacy mode

you can test with loader 1.02b (dsm 6.1),that one will work uefi and csm

that is a intel based card

hpe has the intern 4port adapter as "HP Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 366i Adapter" in the specs and from vendor id (8086) thats intel

Thank you this did work using the older version. thanks for your help. I have now come into another issue however, it is saying there are no drives connected to the system, this is wrong i have in fact 6x 900GB sas drives?

 

they are however going through a raid card but are each there own volume, this worked in freenas which uses ZFS. 

 

Do i need a HBA card in order to get the software to see the drives?

 

Kind Regards,

Charlie.

at least you need a driver for the controller (you did not mention!!!) you are using and there are limits to this, also you loose important functionality when only defining every disk as a single raid set to emulate hba behavior on a raid controller and it will be extremely difficult to to find and replace a not properly working disk, removing/replacing the wrong will result in a broken raid set, a situation that most users can't handle to repair

 

did you read the tutorial? the part about drivers aka extra.lzma?

its suggested to use a lsi sas based card in IT mode, that way you might be able to find a proper cable from controller to your backplane

LSI SAS 9211-8i and reflashed oem versions are cheap to get used often already with it firmware

 

maybe check your B320i (?) controller for HBA/IT functions

here is something called hba mode option rom" listed

and here it looks like that it would be possible to disable the raid option in the setup

Hi thanks for this.

 

I have now got a dedicated HBA Card. the drives are connected up to it but the find.synology.com page still says it cant find any disks?

 

It is a HP Smart Array H420 in HBA Mode.

 

is there a reason find.synology.com thinks there are still no drives? 

 

Kind Regards,
Charlie.
