ESXi 6.5 DSM 6.02 / DSM 6.1.3, no network, no full start after adding more than 1 lagre HDD

Recommended Posts

I have strange problem with Xpenology. I try alot of combination last few days.

 

1st

when build Xpeno 6.1.3 or 6.0.2 both turn on and i can setup DSM

after i add 1st 3TB hdd (in raw mode),.. images is located in RDM folder Xpenology still boot OK and i can create volumes, shutdown, restart anything,...

 

2nd

when build Xpeno 6.1.3 or 6.0.2 both turn on and i can setup DSM

after i add 2nd 3TB hdd (in raw mode),.. images is located in RDM folder Xpenology wont boot to working state. Xpenology start, but network is not up and i can't find it on network at all.

So to make it simple, if i add more than i 3TB hdd to Xpenology it won't start to working stat anymore

 

situation:
HDD1 = botloader
HDD2 = system disk
HDD3 = 1st 3TB data disk
HDD4 = 2nd 3TB data disk

 

Does anybody have a clue what could resolve this?

Update:

 

System is running on:
- HP Microserver 2 CPUs x AMD Turion(tm) II Neo N54L Dual-Core Processor
- 16 GB RAM
- Inside is 250 GB HDD for System (ESXi 6.5) and there is also stored all virtual machines (Xpenology)
- 2x 3 TB WD HDD added in RAW mode (used for SHR RAID on Xpenology)

 

Like i wrote i having problems with disks after restar or even start if i add more than 1 raw disk to Xpenology.

Problem:

- no disk after restart

- volume crash

- if both 2,7 TB HDDs added before star virtual machine, machine won't get IP and i can't find it on network (find. synology.com)

 

This is my second test/backup NAS, so i can rebuild it from scratch, but i really can't find one really working solution.

Please if someon running same hardware with NAS on ESXi, can you help me how exactly you build loader (i think i should use 1.02b by June) and as i read on forum i can manualy update DSM to 6.1.3.

 

If soemone can help me to build working DSM 6.1.3 on ESXi i will be very greatfull (yes, i did read forum up and down, but no final success).

 

Thank you,

Alex_G
