mgrobins Posted April 18, 2017 Share #576 Posted April 18, 2017 Portmap is only if the bootloader is having issues yes? I have 6 onboard and 2 SAS ports on HBA (4 each) and so far with testing all seem to be detected properly. Sequence is onboard 0-5, SAS0 (P1-P4), SAS1 (P1-P4) I do have a question about logical vs physical disk connections. I am uncertain if my SAS cable is improperly labelled (I'd need to blank drives and redo the array from scratch to test), or if the Logical disk ID is not the same as the physical connection. Connecting my drives P1-P4 on HBA I noted the sequence of them in DSM under disk manager is not the same. Physical: P1 P2 P3 P4 Logical: 3 2 1 4 I don't have SGPIO to id which drive is which so I use the Benchmark activity and check which drive activity light switches on to id it If I swap drives to different bays it makes no difference. the sequence is still the same logically. The array still runs though which is nice (only one volume for me right now). Is this sequence consistent or is it defined at the time the array is built due to some factor relating to the disks? (i.e. is my cable labelled incorrectly ). Once the rest of my parts arrive and my hardware reviewing is largely done I'll be putting a lot more disks onboard. Would be nice to know what to expect so I can label them properly . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
