SuperMicro X9DBL-IF Installation failure - System is getting ready

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks - We have made some great progress with our install and stuck on the very last step. 😩

 

Our Disktation installs successfully, reboots and comes back up again - after a few minutes the interface refreshes and says "Starting Services" in the assistant, if you browse to the web interface it states "System is getting ready" and simply sits there....

 

After a good 30 minutes nothing happens and it doesn't seem to move past this stage. We have Juns 1.02b boot loader and the DSM_DS3615xs_15152.pat file for the installation as per the guide. 

 

Hardware Setup:

  • SuperMicro X9DBL-IF Motherboard
  • 2 x Intel XEON E5-2418L
  • 48Gb Ram ECC
  • 3 x LSi 9211-8i (Flashed to IT Mode - Dell H200)
  • HP NC365T Ethernet controller 
  • Various Hard Drives on the LSi's 

Has anyone else experienced anything similar to the above or can offer any insight / guidance as to what might be up? :)

Many Thanks!

Are you upgrading from a previous version or is this a clean install?

If you have a lot of drives attached to the controllers it may be that DSM is installing on them and its taking time.

If you have > 12 drives then you will need to change your config to match AFTER the system is installed (maximum =24)

You could try reducing the complexity of the system, remove 2 of the LSI, disable onboard sata controllers etc and maybe lower the memory.

See if that gets you a 'working' system then build up from there

You could check the bios settings and see what resources (IRQ and memory) are allocated to the controllers and other devices, might be a conflict there so disable unnecessary items. IRQ sharing could lead to drive timeouts and slow loading.
