ssd marked as "not tested for compatilibility"


Recommended Posts

I was planning on installing my xpenology on an older homebrew server I originally built for a windows storage array.

Love this site, everything everyone's doing here.

Creating my xpenology with a samsung 840evo, I couldn't use it as the installation disk as it was marked as "not tested for compatibility". Today while i'm checking everything I pulled up the SSD cache page and of course it let me add it as a cache drive for the array.

I'm kind of confused. I mostly get it, but if I used all SSD's for an array would it give the same compatibility message?

 

Introducing myself, i'm Primant. i've been working in the IT arena for 25+ years now, work for one of the big IT firms as a presales architect for the federal space.

Happy to be here!

when/where did you see that message and with what dsm type and version

also the message just sounds like it would be a warning and you could proceed anyway

beside this the "database" behind this might be just a local text file and that can be extended easylie

loader v1.03b with 6.2.3 release 25426

the drive was listed under available drives but would not allow me to create a volume with it, reporting that message, however it did let me make it an ssd cache drive.

It's an Samsung Evo 840 120gb SSD.
