Pooling with DS119J



I have a 1-bay Synology for which I bought an additional 8TB disk and together with a dick docking station I wanted to make a disk pool.

Following the instructions in a video, I have managed to add the new disk as an internal disk. I however see that the disk, while detected, shows that it is not initialised in HDD/SDD in Storage Manger.

I have been reading some posts on how to further modify the /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf file with commands such as:








My configuration file does not have supportraidgroup=”yes” so no need to hash that one.


Before attempting these, however, I wanted to consult with the experts for the sake of prudence.


Appreciate your help

Many thanks

You can’t take a single drive which is already in use as a volume und put it into a RAID group. 


It would mean that you‘ll need to start from scratch (blank DSM installed without any created volumes) and follow the instructions you see in the video.
