Do you have the required number of disks?

I have 7 drives in there right now as SHR-1, largest drive is a 4TB and I added a non-initialized 4TB to perform the change to SHR-2.

And do you have SHR enabled in synoinfo.conf?  It will certainly "import" existing SHR volumes, but I am not sure you can make any changes without it enabled.

I guess not.  A quick google search found that I need to ssh and then sudo vi and comment out  supportraidgroup="yes" and add

support_syno_hybrid_raid = "yes". Just did it.

 

Damn, now upon reboot,  my DSM is asking to reinstall/migrate. Is this normal? Should I proceed with installing/migrating again?

I found it.

So, I reinstalled but I still don't see the option to 'Change Raid Type'

From Synology website:

 

SHR-1 with the following disk configurations may require two additional disks when changing to SHR-2:

There are only two disks.

All disks have different capacities.

Three or more disks in the RAID Array contain a pair of higher-capacity disks compared to the other disks in the RAID Array.

 

what disk configuration do you have?

Tried it again. It seems that making that change to  synoinfo.conf results in the diskstation wanting to reinstall.

what disk configuration do you have?

Disk 1: 1.8TB 

Disk 3: 2.7TB

Disk 5: 2.7TB

Disk 6: 3.6TB

Disk 7: (Not initialized, reserved for upgrade to SHR-2) 3.6TB

Disk 8: 3.6TB

Disk 9: 2.7TB

Disk 10: 466GB

The shitty part is that right after the 6.1 upgrade I 'initialized' Disk 8 which was previously unused as well.

If you're array is ok why not swap the 500gb disk for a 4tb, let the array rebuild then change to shr-2. I'm assuming that you have backups  of all your important files while you're doing this of course.

Yeah, data is backed up. Why would the swap from 500GB to 4TB allow me to change to shr-2? It would go from

Disk 1: 1.8TB 

Disk 3: 2.7TB

Disk 5: 2.7TB

Disk 6: 3.6TB

Disk 7: (Not initialized, reserved for upgrade to SHR-2) 3.6TB

Disk 8: 3.6TB

Disk 9: 2.7TB

Disk 10: 466GB

 

to

 

Disk 1: 1.8TB 

Disk 3: 2.7TB

Disk 5: 2.7TB

Disk 6: 3.6TB

Disk 7: (Not initialized, reserved for upgrade to SHR-2) 3.6TB

Disk 8: 3.6TB

Disk 9: 2.7TB

Disk 10: 3.6TB

 

Still 3 different sizes of drives.

Essentially yes, when you remove the 500gb the array will degrade, add the 4tb DSM should see the new disk & expand the array. Once complete you should be able to change the raid type to shr-2 with the spare 4tb disk.

For those who used rmmod=ata_piix, where did you placed it in your grub.cfg file ?

 

No one ?

A quick search would have told you to put it on the same line as the serial No, MAC etc.

did you edit the grub file with the image open in ofsmount, or after you had burned the image to the usb and edited it there. I've found that depending on how the edit is done the file can get 'corrupted' so its not 'read' properly.

I edited it the osfmount way. When at home, i can post my grub.cfg file to see what's wrong with it.

One additional note, my system is reporting <4gb ram available but has 8gb in it.  It reported all 8gb before the upgrade, but is now only reporting something like 3.5gb, like it defaulted back to x86 from x64, but it is still showing x86_64 in the kernel (uname -a).  No biggie as I am hoping to retire this server soon (move to a VM), but thought I would report it.  Sorry for spamming up the thread.

DFds  to get rid of the 500gb disk , i dont think you have to degrade your array , just tell dsm that you want to don't want use that disk and it will migrate everything off .

dsm -- storage manager --volume--"remove" 500Gb disk .. should be quick (assumes you have enough space on other disks for the moved data)

 

I dont know whether its this simple in shr-1 ?
