    RESET Forums iOS App is ready!

    Hi Can anyone at Apple clarify what is happening regards resetting app ratings, now that developers can submit iOS 11 built updates. I can not see any button on iTunes Connect to reset ratings or indeed not reset ratings. So our ratings still going to be wiped like they have previously been? Is this feature going to be added to iTunes Connect on September 19th with the general release of iOS 11 ? Can someone from Apple reading this please comment (even if it is just to say they can't say!).

    JBOD or RAID?

    Hello sir, I am also a extremely happy customer of everything Synology and I can honestly say with all due respect your thought process is a bit off. There is no gain making a separate partition for applications, with the built in "Hyper Backup" its extremely easy to backup the applications and restore as needed unlike Windows. In my humble opinion your over complicating things the way your doing it and also wasting valuable disk space trying to plan ahead for space needed. Your better off using making one volume for everything, then using "Hyper Backup" to backup what's needed. Fyi you also wont get any speed improvements installing applications on there own partition. Just my 2 cents. Hope this helps

    Time to start B120i FAQ?

    It seems in the meantime this has become a standard linux behaviour. I had to put my controller into RAID mode because of terrible performance in AHCI mode (more on that here) and all the drives are normally accessible without putting them into RAID 0 mode. SMART readings work as well. Tried Debian Buster and current ArchLinux. Disks are recognized without issues

    how to set p222 as a ahci (jbod) device

    I am occassionnally using my system to copy data from an "external" disk, temorarily replacing a disk in the front bays, putting in an ntfs dmformatted drive, copying some data then putting back the old drive again. This wont be possible once i switch to the p222 controller?

    Getting Black Screen After An Update!

    When this happens, the monitor screen turns black, you just need to press the three keys Ctrl + Alt + Del on the keyboard. By doing this, the Windows 10 screen will be displayed to you normally. Now click on the power button on the right and then select the Restart option to restart Windows. According to Microsoft, your problem will be solved and it will no longer start with the black screen.

    JBOD or RAID?

    SHR is a great RAID solution and good choice. And if you plan to upgrade the disks later, Synology can do that seamlessly. I myself is a big fan of Synology. Their products may be a bit boring to look at, but their software is solid and they clearly are investing a lot of energy in their platform.

    how to set p222 as a ahci (jbod) device

    On HPE RAID contollers if you set a drive as a single drove RAID0 it will behave similar to JBOD. I have moved drives from AHCI to a HPE single drive RAID0 with out losing data. That said, there are no guarantees. Be sure to backup your data, before you try migrating.

    JBOD or RAID?

    Update: After a little more thought I realized I was wasting an entire bay on "system" stuff. My initial thought was to have a storage pool dedicated to "system" and a second storage pool for my actual file storage. Although I like that organization on paper, I realized that I lose storage/flexibility by doing it that way. So, I decided to create a single SHR storage pool and have a volume dedicated to system instead. This way I gain redundancy across the board and have all four bays to play with instead of being limited to three bays on one pool. The biggest gain that I feel I get is the ability to hot swap in the future. I currently have 2x8TB and 2x4TB and know that at some point I will want to upgrade the 4TB drives. If I went with JBOD, that means I would have to do a full restore of my files. This way, I can just swap a larger drive in. Thanks again for the feedback. Definitely helped get to me my decision.

    Very slow disk speeds in certain scenarios

    so i have just switched the B120i to RAID mode and suddenly all my drives have "normal" speeds. dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=64 of=/target/drive oflag=direct reaches full SATA speeds respective to the speed of the bay the disk is in (440 MB/s or 250 MB/s) and using dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=64 | pv -s 64M | dd of=/target/drive oflag=direct has 12-14 MB/s across all drives (this time i tested only the SSDs, no HDDs in the server at the moment) what i did was, that at took two of the drives (Vertex3 and Crucial MX300) and created two RAID 0 arrays out of them. interestingly their content remained untouched. also the rest of the drives that are not in an array have now normal read speeds and their content is reachable. so this raises new questions and possibilities: 1) why is AHCI mode in my case so much slower than RAID mode? HSS knowledge says performance should be the same 2) if I keep my system in RAID mode, my experience from this experiment suggests, that I could put my system SSD in to the ODD Slot, create a single RAID 0 array from it, pop in my 4 prefilled HDDs and mount them normally. Even if this post is telling otherwise https://homeservershow.com/forums/topic/8595-time-to-start-b120i-faq/?do=findComment&comment=92355 thanks again for your time

    how to set p222 as a ahci (jbod) device

    sorry for reviving an old topic, but i just want to confirm my understanding: if Ive been using the B120i controller in AHCI mode, connecting my existing prefilled disks to a P222 controller means that i will have to reformat them and loose all data?
  15. I tried installing a SmartArray P420 PCIe controller in my Gen10 with different, but equally dismal results. The card initializes and shows up in SmartStorage Administrator. The logical volumes get presented to the OS. BUT, after being on for a while, the server reboots. iLO showed the card as Storage Controller (Unknown Product info) IML shows the following: PCI Bus Uncorrectable PCI Express Error Detected. Slot 3 (Segment 0x0, Bus 0x11, Device 0x0, Function 0x0). 09/19/2020 16:25:19 2 Hardware CPU Uncorrectable Machine Check Exception (Processor 1, APIC ID 0x00000000, Bank 0x00000006, Status 0xFB800000'00000E0B, Address 0x00000000'00000000, Misc 0x00000000'11000000). 09/19/2020 16:24:10 2 Hardware UEFI Uncorrectable Error Detected on the Previous Boot. Error information logged to the Integrated Management Log. 09/19/2020 16:24:10 2 Hardware System Error Unrecoverable I/O Error has occurred. System Firmware will log additional details in a separate IML message entry if possible. 09/19/2020 16:15:13 1 Hardware CPU Uncorrectable Machine Check Exception (Processor 1, APIC ID 0x00000000, Bank 0x00000006, Status 0xBB800000'00000E0B, Address 0x00000000'00000000, Misc 0x00000000'11000000). 09/19/2020 16:24:04 2 Hardware So I suspect this is another case of a P4xx SmartArray being incompatible with Gen10 Hardware

    Problem with Bluescreen!

    so this is where you realize you are your own warranty provider since you mention blue screen I will assume windows is on there. windows is notoriously sensitive to ram issues especially at startup. booting literally anything else and seeing if it dies will give some distinction between issues like bad memory -vs- trouble with the data from/on the disk. given memory issues are frequent causes of blue screen I think the above recommendation about booting a memory tester is an excellent one. if you can soak it without a freeze or crash or reboot, I think that would rule out most power, thermal, ram, and cpu issues. if the ram test itself has problems you are in the unenviable position of figuring out the hardware problem. normally I would start with a minimum amount of 'stuff' stuck into my motherboard and work my way up, testing each time. don't forget the power supply is in the equation too.

    Very slow disk speeds in certain scenarios

    I am in ahci mode. I was considering switching to the B120i just for testing, but i need the odd bay for an ssd
  18. We run an inhouse exchange server at work, I'll be getting rid at some point as we're meant to be a professional business so a server failing, internet connection going down or something like that doesn't need to be something TPTB need to worry about.

    Problem with Bluescreen!

    Grab a copy of memtest boot CD/USB and run that, should stress the system enough to point you in a direction.
  20. Hi, Everyone But facing problem regarding My Desktop of getting randomly Blue screen and shutdown. Sometime It won't even start because as I start my CPU and it had blue screen and shut down. I don't know what should I Do but changed my RAM and I thinking to change my Motherboard.

    ASUS AiMesh AX6100 WiFi System (RT-AX92U 2 Pack)

    The 2nd AP backhaul will be via the 2nd 5GB WiFi channel. Can't run wires in the walls on this house. I've kinda re-thought my whole setup. The Fritz!box will be put into bridge mode and the ASUS will do all the dhcp/routing, etc. I've purchased a Grandstream DP752 Long-range DECT Cordless VoIP base station and DP730 DECT cordless phone for my VOIP needs.

    Very slow disk speeds in certain scenarios

    Are you using the B120i or AHCI for disk controller?

    Very slow disk speeds in certain scenarios

    i did some further tests, exchanging the disks between bays and created a chart with the read speeds: i don't think there's anything wrong with the Samsung 860 EVO, Crucial MX300, WD40EFRX and Seagate 7200.1 disks. I have tested the MX300 on a windows machine extensively, running full write tests and the disk reached consistent full SATA speed on the whole surface. so what's wrong with my machine? My system config is Xeon E3-1265Lv2, 16GB ECC RAM. I am thinking about getting a SmartArray RAID controller, but I don't need RAID and i think it would be wasted money
  24. Ha ha You do look a little sophisticated when I look at your tag line (N45L, a T20, virtualbox...) But thanks for your reply! Keep the farm going strong!
  25. I haven't gotten that sophisticated. heard a lot about it but not a priority for me. got to keep the farm going and take care of family needs.
  26. True, It’s a risky business. I do have an IDP system in front of the Exchange server and some OK passwords on all of the accounts, but you’re right. Another reason to get out of this Are you using your own e-mail domain or ?
  27. wow, you have some stamina to be doing that. I wouldn't even consider it given the challenges of fending off the monsters attacking a server with direct access to the internet.
  28. since you have provided the wired backhaul, isn't the "mesh" part being unused?
