Anyone Using A DX213 2-Bay Expansion With A DS916+?

Postby ben_r_ » Mon Sep 11, 2017 5:52 pm

I have a DS916+ (8GB) with 4 8TB WD Red HDDs in it and love it! I know about the DX513 5-bay expansion, but I recently learned there used to be a DX213 2-bay expansion unit and I am trying to figure out if it will work with the DS916+. Since the DX213 is discontinued I can't find any official documentation stating that it will work with the DS916+.

Anyone out there own both and can confirm whether or not the two play well together? I can't see why they wouldn't as there is not much going on inside Synology's Expansion units, but still, they may have blocked the DX213 from working in software/firmware somehow.
