Hot swap bays seen as e-sata drives

So I bought a 12 bay IBM HS-1235E to run XPEnology from and it runs great aside from it thinking that the last 4 bays on the server are external e-sata instead of regular bays, which means it won't let me use them in my main SHR volume. Anyone have any ways to get around this or fix the issue? Thanks

DSM assigns bay slots to the controller ports it detects. It's possible it's assigning the last 4 bays to other ports your not using. You'd need to poke around in ssh to try to see what is going on. fdisk -l and other utils might give you some clues.

'disable' (ie set to zero) esata in synoinfo.conf - there are various threads about editing that for different internal/exterenal drive quantities

 

this is my 16 internal drive config for example

maxdisks="16"

esataportcfg="0x0000"

usbportcfg="0x00000"

internalportcfg="0xffff"
