DSM 6.0.2 with 6 NICs - PLEASE HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've been running DSM 5.2 on Microserver Gen8 for a while and yesterday I upgraded it to DSM 6.0.2.

 

The upgrade was pretty smooth and all worked great after that.

 

Then I decided to throw in a quad Gigabit card in (HP NC365T).

 

The card got detected OK, I can see additional 4 ports in DSM, I can change their settings etc. But they don't seem to be passing any traffic. For example, they're unable to obtain IP addresses from DHCP server. When I assign the IP address manually, I'm unable to ping from/to them. The 2 on-board Intel Gigabit NICs work great though.

 

Do I need to change any settings in the grub.cfg for all 6 NICs to work properly with Xpenology?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Not familiar with adding NIC cards to Xpenology, but have you tried ssh to your box and using ethtool to see the state of the interfaces?

I think ethtool might provide better visibility into the settings and details of how the ports are configured.

You can also post the output here for additional assistance.

Also, could you provide whats displayed for each additional interface in the control panel? I assume they show dhcp enabled and link connected. Do you see the mac address come up in your dhcp server requesting ip leases?

I ended up reinstalling DSM 6.0.2 from scratch which solved the problem for me. In the meantime I've ordered a couple of 10Gbe cards (Intel X520s) and am going to upgrade NICs at the weekend. Hopefully it will be a smooth process ;->.
