HDDs not being recognised by DSM


Recommended Posts

Please help me.


I have the DSM 6.1.5 installed on an ESXi. The machine in addition to 2 SATA HDD (50 MB + 16GB) still 4 HDD (iscsi) of 4 TB assigned. However, the DSM only recognizes the two SATA HDDs (including another 10 empty slots) and two of the iscsi HDDs. I can not get through the other two HDD. Can someone show me my mistake?
I am grateful for any help.


DS3615xs on a HP Gen 8 Server with: 16GB RAM, 4x 5TB WD red (Data), 1x 1GB Samsung HDD (VMs), ESXi is on the SD-Card (6.5), VM= 2 CPU, 2 GB RAM, 1. HDD 50MB (SATA), 2. HDD 16GB (SATA), 3.-7.HDD 4TB (scsi)

try to use SSH and look what kind of hardware you can see inside DSM/Linux. With some linux/debian secific commands you can find out if your OS can see the HDDs, and DSM is not - or if even the OS cannot see the disks, and you need to dig somewhere else.

I wondered a little bit about the fact, that 2 of thr 4 disks even show up - as it is supposed to have only SATA/SAS disks inside a normal DS.
