More than 12 drives on DSM 5.1-5022 Update 5?

Recommended Posts

I'm searching to see if there is any way to support more than 12 drives? I have 2 m1015 IT cards and a 16 drive server. I found a thread with modified 4.3 install but nothing mentioned 5.1.

 

Thanks!

I have 24 drives setup with this configuration in which Stanza and dBa came up with:

 

I used ssh to edit /etc/syninfo.conf and /etc.defaults/syninfo.conf with the following values:

esataportcfg=”0x0000000”

usbportcfg="0xff00000" 

internalportcfg=”0xfffff”

 

 

After a reboot they all showed up. I know nothing about what those values really do but it worked for me.

Problem right now is I don't have all the drives in. I guess I'll just proceed and trouble shoot when I get more drives in. The internalportcfg calculation I understand but I'm not sure about the usbportcfg offset.
