    Is it possible to use a Synology NAS as a "slave" for drive bay expansion of another Synology NAS?

    Hello admin / all: I'm new to the forum, but have a relatively specific question I'm hoping someone might have some insight for. I could not find a similar post or question here and wasn't sure where to post this. Maybe HW & SW Compatibility? I'm not a power NAS/Networking user, but know just...

    User introduction New DS920+ w/DX517 expansion owner

    Wanted to say "Hi." I've had my new system for a few weeks now and still have a lot to learn. My primary use is centralized data storage for our 2 Kodi systems, for which it's performing quite well. The 920 has 4 8TB WD drives and I re-used 5 of the 6 4TB WD drives that were originally...

    Out with the old, in with the new - 'Tis the Season - SSD

    Out with the old: In with the new: Another 4TB WD Blue to add to the volume - I've been very happy with these drives to date. It's only since the trading the RS1221+ fan noise for the Noctua silence do you get to fully appreciate the peace of SSDs. Usually when I open the door to the...

    DS918+ total capacity limited at 20TB after expansion

    My DS918+ used to have 2 storage pools with 10 TB drive each. I added 2 12 TB drives into my NAS under the first storage pool. The total capacity is now 20TB, instead of 31 / 30 TB I was expecting. I upgraded to DSM7 but it doesn't help. When I click the ellipsis button, I can't see Modify Size...

    Hey all, Is it possible to use the E10M20-T1 expansion card with a DS1621+? I’d like to upgrade to 10GBE and use the SSD cache on the card for a volume on my DX517 (using the internal SSDs for the cache on a volume on the 1621 itself). I wondered if anyone had tried and got it working? Best...

    I made a booboo with my HDD purchase for expansion

    Hiya, I started with an 1817+ with 8x4TB WD Red drives in SHR-1. All good. I replaced two 4TB drives with two 10TB WD Red drives later on which gave me an additional 6TB space. All good. Then as money was tight I thought instead of buying another 10TB I'll get something a bit smaller and...

    Expansion - RX418 vs RS819 Question

    I am outgrowing my RS217 and looking it to replace it with a 4-bay. Limitations are 1U and around 30cm depth, must support BTRFS, must be UPS aware, ideally with low power consumption with CPU performance requirements at the lower end of the scale. Two options come to mind - the RX418 & RS819...

    Hello, recently picked up a DX1215 expansion unit and I can find a way to dim the LEDs or power this unit off while leaving my main DS3018xs still running. Curious if anyone figured this one out. Perhaps I'm just missing something. Cheers!
