Esxi and smart / disk status

Recommended Posts

hi

decided to install esxi on my asrock n3150 , installed xpenology

after reading threads, its impossible to send smart status to xpenlogy, since raid controll on my mainboard is not capable

 

so how can i send email alerts on disk status?

 

i have a backup system now, but whats the advantage of backup if you cant check hard disk status :smile:

yes, you need to get a sata HBA card that supported by the loader then Configuring VMDirectPath I/O pass-through. Make sure your mobo support this.

can you show me a compatible hba card? with 2-4 ports?

 

i have now mapped raw lun ports, using virtual rdm, like in this guide post 1 : viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3132 , is that what you mean?

 

do you mean by , my mainboard supports it, you mean the slot?, i have a - 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x1 Slot

do all card are recognized by the esxi later on ? as a passthrough ?

 

thnx

or

http://www.sybausa.com/index.php?route= ... uct_id=156 (4 port one)

 

=> marvell chipset, not sure if its working on dsm 5.2 ?

 

https://www.startech.com/be/nl/Kaarten- ... EXESAT322I

=> asmedia asm1061 , after googling should work on dsm

 

 

its a 2 port, according to specs its a pci express 2.0 x1 , should be working on my motherboard

 

will this be working on my xpeonology and esxi without adding drivers and stuff?

 

 

thnx
