Adding disks to SHR Volume - Not Working!


Recommended Posts

Hi Xpenology users,


Not sure if i'm at the right point here. If not, please let me know.


I'm trying to add new 1tb disks (2x) to my current SHR volume (containing 2x 1tb).

Everything is going well, DSM does see the drives and are listed in the overviews.




While expanding I see the messages like; initialising and mounting and the 4 disks are listed.

But after mounting the 2 are gone and nothing is changed at all..


Even if I add one of both disks, none works!


Any idea on what the problem could be?

Please let me know!


Motherboard: ASRock Q1900-ITX

DSM version: 5.0-4528

SATA mode is on AHCI in motherboard BIOS.

What did you do after they initialized?


Did you try expanding an existing volume/group? When you do that the new disk appear in a list then you can select them for addition to the volume etc. from memory. I tend to use single volumes and I can't remember exactly how the process works? But it maybe something as simple as that.

One disk at a time doesn't make a difference.


Look; here is the situation now:




Then i'm going to manage > Expand volume > Select my disk(s) > Apply:




Then Initializing:




Then mounting:




After this mounting, the stage manager windows is going back to the first screenshot without any error or anything else:
