[SOLVED] Why my second sata card / 8th HDD is not recognized

Recommended Posts

Hi !

 

I managed to expand my server by adding hard disks with sata cards expansion.

My choice came to Startech PEXSAT32 SATA expansion card, by founding it on this board.

The first works really fine with two hard drive on it.

The second sata card isn't working at all in DSM, but is well recognized in the BIOS.

I placed on it a little HDD to test it, and it is well recognized in the BIOS. No way to find it in DSM Disk Manager.

 

Any idea where it comes from ?

The two cards are exactly the same model.

 

Thanks !!

I managed to look into the shell and the fdisk command revealed the HDD.

So I don't think it is a hardware issue, but a DSM/Xpenology bug.

Anyone here has more than 7 HDD ?

That was it, my internal port was the 14th, so I had to modify the port table of

 

maxdisks=

internalportcfg=

esataportcfg=

 

in /etc/synoinfo.conf

and /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf
