How is Storage Manager displaying the drives ie slot numbers?

Try disabling any on-board sata and see if that changes the disk appearance

You can 'mask out' the esata drive settings in synoinfo.conf if the above does not work. Thats a bit involved, so try and report back on the above first before you start 'hacking' :)

yeah the drives are starting with Disk 6-12 as seen on attached photo.

thats 4 x onboard sata + 1 ata/sata for optical drive + your 8 from the h200 - the default configuration covers 12 ports, so you are 1 over the limit

 

if you can't disable anything in bios you can change the cofiguration file of dsm to support more ports

zhe following video explains how to do it (takes a little bit binary to hex calculation, but its easy if you get the point how to count the ports)
