Always only 6 drives visible on HBA


Recommended Posts

Very new to this, my first attempt.

Motherboard Gigabyte F2A75M-D3H (AMD)

LSI LSI SAS9201-16i fw (HBA)

Jun's 1.02b loader

Synology "model" DS3615xs

DSM DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 5 (had update 1 before)


The motherboard has 6 SATA ports (i think it's a 4+2 setup). I can see all ports on the motherboard and all connected drives (5 drives)

On the HBA I currently have 8 drives (with room for 8 more). However no matter what I do, DSM will only see the first 6 slotted drives (normally drive 1-6), When I remove drive 1, it will still see 6 drives, but now it's drive 2-7. So apparently a max of 6 drives can be seen on the HBA


I have edited

maxdisk to 25

usbportcfg = 0x3000000000

internalportcfg = 0xfffffff

esataportcfg = 0xff0000000


What am i missing?
