Problem adding additional hard drives via eSATA

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

So here is the situation, I am trying to add additional hard drives on an eSATA interface. I currently am using a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard, I just added a Startech.com 5 bay hard drive enclosure. I currently have 4 hard drives loaded. The bios is set for AHCI and the bios does recognize the drives during boot. The issue that I am running into is that I can see all 4 drives with the USB 3.0 connection however when connected via eSATA I can only see 1 drive. The eSATA connection is using a eSATA to SATA adapter plate and is plugged directly into the motherboard. Also when I plug in my WD 4TB My Book (to use a local backup destination) DSM does not see that drive. Has anyone ran into this issue or have a solution. Thanks!

 

I have edited the synoinfo.config file in both the /etc and /etc.defaults directories with the following settings.

 

maxdisks="24"

esataportcfg="0x0"

internalportcfg="0xffffff"

usbportcfg="0x0"

 

 

I am currently on DSM 5.2.5592 update 4

Actually I ended up finding something that I think would work better for my use case. Startech.com makes a hard drive enclosure where they provide a eSATA to SATA plate. The cable plugs directly into the SATA port on your motherboard and then you plug an eSATA plug from the adapter plate to the hard drive enclosure. It basically should see it as another set of hard drives. Which is strange how it works no problem when connected USB.

Nice unit

 

However I think it has a built in sata port multiplier based on the jmicron chipset and this is not 'seen' by XPE so only one SATA channel shows up.

 

I had the same problem (but I had a stand alone multiplier) so I went with a 'dumb' enclosure and wired up directly to a controller card on the mobo

Currently I have 6 SATA ports on the motherboard, all which have a drive attached to. I added the 5 bay hard drive (which are loaded up with all 5 disks) connected to a USB 3.0 port, but I can only see 4 out of those drives. I intend on adding a SATA controller card to enable my 7th internal drive. The card I am looking at is a Syba 4 port host controller. I want to have additional ports for the future in case I want to add another 5 disk hard drive enclousure should i need more space down the road.

 

So to get this to work do I have the wrong settings. I'm not sure why adding additional disks is so difficult. I'd like to set it up that no matter what interface I plug a disk in that the system recognizes it. Between this and constantly having to fix CrashPlan is very frustrating. I'd welcome any suggestions or would like to know what others are using on there builds

 

maxdisks="30"

esataportcfg="0x0"

internalportcfg="0xffffff"

usbportcfg="0x0"

how many slots show up in storage manager?

when you plug in the usb/esata disks do they appear in empty slots?

 

you need to work out the hex values for int disks/usb/esata based on how your controllers are interpreted by DSM and then all disks should show up, provided all the hardware is compatible with the XPE drivers.

 

values of 0x0 means no disks of that type, plus when working out the hex values i think you need to pad with '0' s so the values map/align as in the default setup ie

 

esataportcfg="0xff000"

usbportcfg="0x300000"

internalportcfg="0xfff

 

if the syba controller you are planning to use is this

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Syba-PCI-e-Cont ... e+brackets

 

then i can tell you it works ok with XPE as I've used it myself :smile:

it shows the "30" slots i told it i wanted, all hard drives plugged in directly to the motherboard show up and can be added to the drive pools. However (LOL) of the 5 disks that are in the external hard drive enclosure, only 4 show up. I will try your settings and update the thread. I am not sure why any drive on any interface would show up in storage manager.

Just tried your recommended settings, storage manager only shows the 2 internal drives that were just recently added and shows no USB drives. This is really strange.....

Take a look at this recent post where someone was building a 45 drive array, similar issues as you and there is some reference to working out the hex values.

 

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9943

 

In your hardware the controllers will be interpreted by the bios, PCI slots and other settings to a unique layout and loaded by the XPE drivers/DSM.

 

You then have to work out the hex parameters depending on how DSM is going to interpret the resulting configuration.

 

The binary to hex table of 0s and 1s isnt linux, its how you do the conversion of what drive device is in what slot, to a parameter for the synoinfo.conf file.

 

I think you are on the right track because you are seeing drives appearing but not all of them, but you might have to do some trial and error to get the exact binary/hex configuration to match your hardware.

 

hope that helps

So I tried messaging around around with some of the values, I am able to get close to see all of the drives but not all of them.

 

@sbv3000 - I did get the sata controller not exactly the same one you have this one is the SI-PEX40065 (which also has a Marvell chipset, its all that was in stock)

 

Drive Config 12 total

 

6 connected to the motherboard

5 connected to an eSATA port on the SI-PEX40065 SATA Controller Card in PCIe 1x port

1 addtional hard drive connected to one of the SATA ports on the SI-PEX40065 SATA Controller Card

 

Just to mention 1 USB thumbdrive to boot from

 

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help me figure out the codes as I've spent countless hours on this already. Below is the output from dmesg.....Any help would be appreciated.

As you are only using 12 drives then I would leave the synoinfo.conf settings at default and look more into the drives vs slots (in the expansion unit) appearance. From your dsmsg output, I would compare the serial numbers of the drives that are visible to the slots in the unit and find which one/s are not showing up. Do this for sata connection and then with usb and see if its the same. Then try moving the drives around and seeing which one/s show up. Then try leaving a drive out of one of the slots that works and see if the 'missing' drive/slot appears.

 

Also try the expansion unit connected to one of the onboard satas and the syba and see if there is a difference.

 

The goal being to see if there is a limitation/compatibility issue with the expansion unit and XPE/DSM as if there is, no amount of hex magic will make the drives all show up. The expansion unit also seems to use two different controller chips (one for sata and another for usb), which could be why you are seeing different results depending on the connection method.

did you try my suggestion to test all the slots?

 

also, i tried out a 30 drive hex config on a spare bare metal box i have and it showed the usb boot disk as drive 21. at the moment i've not worked out why, but think its how the controllers/pci devices are enumerated by xpe/dsm. i think yours is a similar issue, but first step is making sure all your sata channels are seen properly imho
