    Connect a network lead to the other port on the back, not the two next to each other. Hopefully you still have access to the luggage tag attached to the rear of the server, you'll need it. Find the ip address of the ilo port, I use Fing app on smartphone, but you can find it by accessing your routers settings. Enter that ip in a web browser, and that should take you to a login page Enter the details from the above luggage tag into the page, and if all is ok, you should have just logged into ilo. Hopefully this at least will let you get to see something...

    In AHCI mode the MS Gen8 will only boot from the ODD port if there are no drives in the front bays. There is no boot priority setting in AHCI. Using the B120i you can boot from any drive. You can use a bootloader to use AHCI and boot from the ODD port:

    Extremely late to the post here but wanted to share some of the experiences I had. I also used the Asus NIC along with a NetgearGS110EMX, and then a QNAP QSW-1208-8C-US and had several weird issues that range from not being able to access devices to other random events. It was worse when I used the Asus driver and worked moderately better with windows native drivers but neither was acceptable. I replaced it with an OEM Intel card and all my issues went away and gained about 20-25% in performance. As I now have multiple systems with 10G, I still use the Asus cards in my backup/Plex server where it is more of a single purpose and seems to work fine. I am running on the native windows 10 drivers. I realize the Intel cards are quite a bit more but if you are investing in 10G, consider spending a bit more and minimize issues. If anyone is interested, the link shows my existing configuration. https://thedocsworld.net/home-network/

    You should be able to migrate to RAID5 after the expansion is complete. In SSA you can adjust the amount of priority that is applied to rebuild/expansion, to speed up the process. Did you update the firmware on the P222 before starting this?

    Just curious to see if you swapped the memory modules to confirm if it is a bad module or a bad memory slot?

    Recently tried this with the Bootloader and it worked well, the instructions are a bit complex for me, but I just followed them line by line and it worked. Only issue I had after was it seemed to turn Windows 10 (OS I was using) into a "Windows to Go" version, which disabled hibernation and haven't been able to re-enable it yet. but I do have 4 drives, plus an SSD to Boot, and a Internal DVD drive, so very happy.

    I am running this on a Supermicro X10SLL-F motherboard with a Intel Xeon E3-1231 v3 CPU with 16 GIG of RAM, Runs like a champ. The only thing I can caution you on is don't allow DSM to auto update itself, Minor updates and security updates have been fine but for major OS updates you need a new loader from XPEnology. That's the only downfall going this rout.

    So, everyone is looking to upgrade their CPU's but having issues with cooling. I have put together some steps to help you successfully keep your CPU temps under control using active cooling. The most important part you will need is a table saw and an aluminum cutting blade. First, you want to acquire the following parts in advance if you are planning on doing this cpu mod. (1) An upgraded compatible cpu of your choice. (2) 50 mm pwm fans. part# MF50101V1-Q020-S99 http://www.ebay.com/itm/282328412662?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT (1) 12V PWM PC CPU Temperature Controller Board https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016OA7KNE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (1) 4-Pin Molex to 3-Pin power adapter https://www.amazon.com/HDE-4-Pin-Molex-Replacement-Computer/dp/B0081K3ZS0/ref=sr_1_12?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1490290747&sr=1-12&keywords=4-Pin+Molex+to+3-Pin (2) M3 Black Oxide Steel Phillips Self Tapping Screws. http://www.ebay.com/itm/172178450739?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=471012416294&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT (4) E Clip 3/16". http://www.homedepot.com/p/The-Hillman-Group-3-16-in-E-Clip-10-Pack-881393/204726239 Lets start with the cpu mod first. This is the actual measurement of the stock cpu heatsink's height. 40.3mm This is the final measurement after using the table saw to cut the heatsink. 30mm should be your max height. Stock vs modded heatsink. Remove the sock retaining clips from the heat sink using a punch and hammer. Use the 3/16 E clips as replacements (you will have to resize them using a pliers). Refer to the picture for the fans mounting locations. Now, install the pwm fan controller using double sided tape. Run its power wire and plug in the pwm fans. You can also adjust the fan speeds to your liking. Your cpu cooler project is now complete! For this second mod, keeping your P222 raid card cool which also helps in lowering the 120mm exhaust fan speeds as well. Second, you want to acquire the following parts in advance if you are planning on doing this P222 raid card mod. (1) 80 mm pwm fan. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006GD30UC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (1) Optional, 60 mm pwm fan. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VXTANZ4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (4) Round Ring Magnets 20mm x 5mm Counter Sunk Hole 5mm Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets. http://www.ebay.com/itm/172503731872?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT (4) PC Case Fan Screws. https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-Mounting-Case-Fan-Screws/dp/B0002AFTD6/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1490296203&sr=1-4&keywords=case+fan+screws (1) 12V PWM PC CPU Temperature Controller Board https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016OA7KNE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Place the magnets on the top rear of each fan. Install the fans as shown in the photo below. The fans will support themselves with the help of the magnets. No cutting or drilling needed! This is optional. You can drill holes on both sides of the case to allow for additional ventilation. Here is a bench test i did using Intel's Burn Test. I did 60 consecutive runs instead of the normal 10 runs. My setup at the time was an E3-1280 V2 cpu with 16gb of ram. These are my normal temps with the server running 7 virtual machines simultaneously over a 2 day period. This is with my current setup. E3-1290 V2 cpu with 16gb of ram That's it. Let me know if you got any questions. I am sure this post will help a lot of people who are looking for a good reliable cooling solution for the gen8.
