Re: Please help a newbie re: updating DSM 5 to 6

No, may be I am wrong. But just go on, you will be told if you need an earlier version.

Re: Setup without final disks present

No, the DS can not operate without an internal disk.

Re: Please help a newbie re: updating DSM 5 to 6

No, you need to install DSM 6.0 first.

I am not sure about the next step from 6.0 to 6.1.3, you may try to go directly without installing 6.1, but dont worry, the system will tell you if you try the "wrong" upgrade file.

Re: How to recover files from Synology NAS HDD in Ubuntu

You can put the disk in the new DS/RS, and read the data, this is no problem. Keyword "migration".

Re: Setup without final disks present

Depends on the final setup If you plan to use a mirrored volume, you can compltely setup your system, then expand with the first new disk and finaly replace the temporary with the 2nd new disk and repair the volume. In all other setups you need to restart from scratch. There are some settings that c...

Re: Joomla install NOT using package center

Did you add the port 3307 to the virtual host?

I am not familiar with virtual hosts, but the problem seems to be that it is only listening on 80/443

Re: Reported Size much smaller than sum of disks

- go to storage manager - volume
- delete the volume
- create a new volume
- chose "custom", "single volume on Raid"
- select all disks
- chose JBOD or RAID0

Nothing easier than that, and yes of course the Synology RAID calculator helps!

Re: 2 to 4 drive expansion with SHR

A RAID10 has to be built from scratch (delete old volume, create new one with all 4 disks).
An SHR volume can be expanded to a SHR2 (same as RAID6, needs 4 disks at least) or stay with SHR (same as RAID5).

Re: Upgrade drive - can I use USB?

It wont work. You could - remove the OTHER disk (dont delete the volume, just remove the disk). - Insert the new disk, create a volume on it, move data from old to new disk. - remove the disk you wanted to replace - reinsert the disk from step 1 - enjoy Note: you will lose all packages, they need to...

Re: Combine two volues on two disks into one volume?

If you want 1 single volume over both disks you need to delete both volumes and recreate a RAID0 or JBOD. Just tested: there is another way to get 1 single volume: - remove 1 disk, reboot => degraded volume - reinsert disk - create a new JBOD volume instead of repairing - move shares from degraded ...
