Virtual Machine Manager Unable to use PetaSpace volume

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a Gen8 running DSM 6.1.4-51217 Update 5. I have been trying to get Virtual Machine manager up and running. The package installs fine, but when I run it, it only allows me to select Volume 3 as the storage for the VMs. I am using PetaSpace to manage volume 1, which is made up of a combination of drives. Am i unable to use this volume for VMM?

That will explain it. It is SHR. I'm guessing there is no easy way of "converting" without losing my data

No there isn't, you will need to backup any data & recreate the volume as btrfs.

Just for the sake of accuracy I need to correct this.

 

BTRFS and SHR are very two very different and totally unrelated things.

BTRFS is a file system.

SHR is a form of raid created by Synology namely Synology Hybrid Raid (SHR).

 

I supposed you wanted to say ext4 which is the common file systems used by Synology.
