I bought the QXG-10G2T-107 for my 1600P after checking in the QNAP compatibility table for suitable cards for my switch. When I put the card in the switch will not boot, it just hangs on "booting". I have an M.2 NVMe SSD drive card in the switch that works fine. Could anyone help me with some thoughts as to why the card does not seem to be compatible- many thanks
Hi, Please can you help a noob.
I have an 8-bay Synology DS1815+ (out of warranty) which has failed to power on after a reload. I tested and tried new PSU - no blue light - no motherboard. So I'm resigned to get a replacement Synology NAS (I'm using SHR).
I've seen the excellent youtube vid comparing DS1621XS+ and DS3617XS.
In my DS1815+ I have 8 drives: 4x6TB, 2x4TB and 2x18TB WD181KRYZ Gold new drives). The config uses SHR - with two volumes (6 disks and 2 disks).
The questions I have:
I) Will I be able to migrate to a DS1621XS+ by first installing just 6 drives (one volume) and then slowly reducing the number of disks to enable to add second volume
ii) If not, will I be able to use a DS1621XS+ (6 bay) + expansion (DX517) to facilitate an initial migration to the new platform. I appreciate long term best not to have a volume split via eSATA.
iii) or am I forced to use an 8 or more bay chassis for the initial migration.
Really appreciate your help with this
I have a power schedule set up on my NAS to shut down between 20:00 and 06:00. Each morning when I login to the DSM, I cannot see my drive. I have to mount it each time. Is there a way I can set this up so I do not have to do this?
Am looking for the right NAS to support both storage and VM capability. Needs to be rack mounted and no more than 310-320 mm deep. Was looking at Synology DS918, but it's not really VM capable. Want to run 2-3 OS's in VMs with 2-3 users. Needs to support MAC and Windows back-ups. Like SHS-2 RAID, but not wed to it. Optimize storage space with reliable back-up. Thinking I'll load initially with 4x 1TB Samsung SSD 860 EVO 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E1T0B/AM) or similar.
