Add new PCI-E 4 Port sata Card

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My setup is a DS-918+  (DSM 6.2.24922 UPDATE 4)
Board: Z270 Gaming Pro with onboard INTEL NIC
CPU: intel core i7-7700k kaby lake
Menmory: 16 GB

6 SATA Disks installed to MOBO 


I have installed a new PCI-E card that have 4 sata ports, and when i add new disks my synology dont find them, do i have to add some drivers or will it not be able to work?
The card that i have installed is this Dellock 90382
I am not so good at linux and i have tried to look at the kern.log file but i dont know what to look at, i hope some one can help me with this issue :-)

in theory that should work as easy as you imagined (ahci compatible controller in, disk connected, disk shown in the dsm gui in storage manager under hdd/ssd)

try "lspci -k" on a command line (putty), that will list the pci(e) devices and drivers in use for it

for the controller added we look for "1b4b:9215" and ahci

also /var/log/dmesg or "dmesg" on commandline (you can record the outpot in text with putty as log) to have a complete log, that will list the devices, drivers loaded and disks found

Okay i will try that later today thank you.

 

I have another question.

 

On my mobo i have a slot for a M.2 NVMe but if i plug in that one it will disable sata port (1 and 2) would i be able to move the 2 disks from port 1 and 2 (RAID1) to my new PCI-E sata controler or will that not work with synology?

When i plug out one of the 6 disks and add i to my controller my BIOS dont see the new disk, and i cant find anywhere in my bios where to activate that card?

I have testet the sata car on both my pci-e slots and same outcome no drives can are visible.

 

I dont get the post screen at the boot up for the controller either, i tried to plugin the card in my windows pc and windows found the card and it was installed but when i plug in disks windows did not find them either.

I have now tried the command lspci -k and it finds 1b4b:9215 @IG-88
But when i attach a disk either BIOS or DSM finds anything?

that sounds more like the card you have has some trouble (if it fails in two different systems with different os), maybe try to send it back and get a replacement

on a side note your lspci does not match your board description, its no intel nic its a realtek in your device list
