    Hey Callihan, Although I don't own a Synology that can utilize NVRAM caching, one thing is for certain and that is, that when dealing with smaller files and a lot of r/w's, caching will improve speed ALOT. If you're acessing smaller files on the NAS, it's not the network speed that is the bottleneck but your harddrive's seek-time. You can easily get a factor 10 in speed improvement on a daily basis. However, if you copy a 4Gb video file, you won't get much improvement from the cache. If I had the oppertunity to add caching to my DS620Slim, I would not hesitate to add the extra cache. Br, Bjorn

    My Synology is running a bunch of stuff. File services of course Surveilliance cameras A podcast-feed (I'm not podcasting - it was just for fun to see how to make a podcast stream work) Backup of my oneDrive cloud data Workstation backup, and now the Ubiquiti Controller. Has been working like a charm so far. But you're right, if you already have the CloudKey there's no need to migrate away from it. On the contrary. BTW the DS1019+ is one hell of a machine

    I just bought because of this news 4x 14TB hard disks from Seagate (Ironwolf Pro). I hope I made a good decision to going on with Seagate and not with WD anymore. My good old 4x 4TB WD Reds are more than 5 years old and I was looking for an upgrade. Gladly the news about more "marketing speech" on WD products came just in time before my buy. :-D

    In case anyone else comes looking with similar troubles: All these weird issues cleared up after I wiggled all the SATA and power cables. 🙄 I tried that before, but must've been more thorough in my desperation the second time. I can't say for sure, but I suspect that the dodgy connection might've been where the motherboard joins the 1-to-many SATA cable. The disks are fine. It's been stressful and odd, but I'm relieved to have a working system again. As mentioned, Seagate have been brilliant. StableBit (DrivePool and Scanner software) were also great. HP were useless - I mean, I know it is out of warranty, but some troubleshooting information or something would've been nice rather than a cursory look at some logs and then "We can't help because you aren't using compatible [ie, pre-approved] disks".

    Hellooooo everybody. As time has finally come and all required parts has arrived, I am presenting you my long struggling upgrade of the CPU + Noctua cooler. All is reversible with no permanent destruction. (At least, I hope ). And CPU fan is working according main case FAN. Upgrade is about to have a new CPU: Xeon E3-1270 V2 with noctua fan: NH-L9i, installed together and cpu fan would work according main case fan. (so if case fan spinning fast, cpu fan too. And vice versa). 1, CASE: ------------- At first, the case needed to be modified little bit. I didnt want to drill out the original passive cooler mounting holders so I did a small workaround. I filed a holes for the screw headers on the outside frame (1) and also a longer hole in the ("I dont know reason why is there" ) "mountain" below CPU (2). pic 1: https://ibb.co/FBxC04k pic 2: https://ibb.co/bJdb0gG 2, SCREWS: ------------------ As there was a hole in the screw holder on the motherboard plate, I had to find out the size of the screws, thread, diameter and so on. But in another topic on this forum I was asking for the help with that, and somebody replied that I can use application and screw compared with different sizes. So I did that and found out that the right size of screw is: #6-32. So I had to ordered them (toghether with screw nuts) from China because I couldnt find them in our country stores. 3, BRACKETS: ---------------------- It is known, that Noctua original brackets were longer in size, 75 vs 65 mm. So I had a luck and asked our local CNC machining store if they could make a new brackets for reasonable price. So here we are: 65 mm brackets for Noctua fan. pic 3: https://ibb.co/DVBM8Qt (The new ones are not labeled) 4, COMPLETING: --------------------------- After months of waiting, I've got all necessary parts and installed them together: https://ibb.co/0D2rN5g - screws in the motherboard plate. https://ibb.co/w74Z27B - Noctua fan cooler mounted with screws and nuts. https://ibb.co/RBNMfRX - with fan. https://ibb.co/nC94fs1 - reason for the hole. 5, FAN - Most tricky part ------------------------------------- This was interesting part as we all know that the signal in the case fan is inverted and it is hard to workaround it. But after some hours of googling I found the solution. There is IC chip existing which can invert the signal in the opposite way. The chip is: 74HC04 and you should be able to get it easily. So with this scheme I found, it was really simple to create a new CPU fan cable: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/322390/12v-pwm-fan-seems-to-be-running-inversely-of-what-it-should-be Here is mine: (I also used the mentioned guide with power sourcing from separate molex, another topic on this forum) https://ibb.co/YfKZWh8 - on the left - it is first attempt. I didnt like it much so I created a new one on the right. Much better result. https://ibb.co/CQ5Kw0z - completed setup. I changed the case fan connector to usual one. The cable with chip inside was put into shrinking tube. So with all this, I installed everything together and now the new CPU fan works the exactly same way as the main case fan. The next steps I would like to finish are: (probably more software-ish). As I still have the original BIOS, firmware and all this, I would like to update them. So maybe the question will be put here: what do you recommend to update first ? Or is there any guide how to update all possible things on this server ? in the correct way ? is it deppend on the right order ? Also I realized that I am still using the system SSD disk on the first slot in the bay, so is there any way how to use SSD disk independently and the whole 4 bay slots for the storage disks ? Another thing is that when I run some "stress" test on the server, all 8 cores at 100%, they went to 80 degrees and increasing, but when I checked the iLO, I saw the the fan was spinning only on 18%. After some time on 21%, what I guess is not much. So I need to check the cooling options which are in BIOS, I guess. Also I am not sure if this is because the old BIOS ? Shouldnt be fan spinning more if the CPU has big load ? I think that's all my thoughts, ideas and I hope that maybe it helps somebody. Many thanks again for all your hints and help. Have a great days. cheers

    Did you remove the CPU while changing thermal paste? The memory channels are directly connected to the CPU. Any debris or contact issue with the CPU could cause this.

    Thanks. I’ve since ordered one from an online dealer though it was a direct ship from Intel so it could be another 4 weeks before received. Snagged some Arctic Silver MX4 also.

    I checked and i’m already running it unfortunately.

    Oddly I'm not receiving these alerts any longer since this update. However I also updated the Agentless Management Services x64 to the most recent October 2020 version too. You might also try that.

    I never had any problems with security. I do lock things down and use two-factor authentication. What concerns do you have? On a side note if your unit has 2 or more NICs you could setup 1 for camera on a separate VLAN, also disable the camera's for connecting to the internet directly, only allow the Synology NVR to access internet, all cameras run threw it and you only access the camera threw Synology... this will prevent the Chinese cameras from dialing home and or installing Spyware. What brand of camera are you using? As standard practice I only allow my clients on my network to access my DNS and block all other DNS, this prevents any clients from bypassing my security and filters. I use a Synology router for this, if you haven't looked at them you should, there awsome. Lots of security features built in all for free

    I had a Synology 1812p and was running 6 1080p cameras with a bunch of other packages running and it never missed a beat. Took a quick look at the spec for your unit and Synology claims it will support up to 25 cameras @720p so I am sure you will be just fine.

    I've managed to add some cooling and I quite frankly can't believe the difference its made, from high 60s to high 40s low 50s. I'll post some pics of what i've done tomorrow when I have more time, but I'm so glad I went down this route and it will very much be needed in the summer months.

    Some random thoughts. System images that Macrium creates are great for BMR, but I still wrestle with the idea of using a recovery image to replace a failed drive or just doing a clean OS install and copying the data files back. If DrivePool is not a compatible destination for Macrium to work with perhaps you could add a drive to the MicroServer that is not part of the DrivePool for Macrium image storage, maybe a USB drive. Then copy the image files into DrivePool.. When I think of DrivePool duplication technology, I tend to think of file sync products like Allway Sync. You could sync all of the files from client systems to folders in DrivePool and have them duplicated. It all depends on how you structure a 3-2-1 backup strategy.

    @GarethC if you go to this address, you should be able to login with your existing HPE account. https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/home/signin If you haven't created one, click create account. After login there will be a Case Manager menu option where you can initiate a simple support ticket. Since it's their business/enterprise class support, they're way more responsive than a consumer case. Also that same account can be used to quickly lookup new bios/firmware/updates for your Gen10 Plus within their web UI.

    Hey. An external drive is 100% fine for use with Essentials backup. It works like a charm and out-of-the box. I've used that backup method for years with my old servers. Br, Bjorn

    All credit to schoondoggy for his original idea. A shame I am on the wrong side of the Atlantic to order an SDM kit as the import duties make it an expensive option, or would have if they were still available. I had to look around to see what alternatives I could find... and managed to find the bits needed on Amazon! I must admit I am rather pleased with the end result of this project and may repeat it on the other Gen8 MicroServer. The outcome is a server with a mirrored system drive on the internal B120i, and the main drive bays connected to an HP P222 card providing a RAID-10 data volume. This is pretty much my ideal setup for a stable resilient but small server. Sabrent 3.5" to x2 SSD Internal Mounting Kit (BK-HDCC) Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/32qEVou Amazon US - https://amzn.to/3h8Blom The kit comes with all the cabling you need and all the required screws to mount the drives and bracket. Two types of power splitter cables are included along with two SATA cables. The bracket holds two SSDs and provides a small gap between them. I mounted the bracket next to the PSU but leaving a 2-3mm gap to allow for some airflow past the SSDs in case they get warmed by the P222. Tips: Put some insulating tape along the underneath of the upper chassis rail next to the PSU and drilled three small holes. I used two strips on to stop the drill bit from walking across the metal. Drill with a 2mm first then a 2.5mm bit. This leaves enough metal for screws to thread in. Check and measure each hole against the bracket as you go so that they line up. Bracket is then fixed in place using the provided screws (see photo). The final part of the puzzle is another Mini-SAS to SATA cable the same as the one connected to the internal drive bays. This is an SFF-8087 Mini-SAS [male] connector to 4 SATA [female] header cables. The 50cm cable from Jyopto works great and not too much spare to lose within the system. Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/2CXAzgb I could not find it on Amazon US site but there was one from CableCreations that same length. Just need to add your choice of SSDs and cable up to B120i port. I went with Samsung 860 Pro SSDs for the longer rated lifespan of write cycles. I decided to forget about an internal DVD/RW drive and opted for an external HP F2B56AA slimline drive that can be plugged into the USB of either system. Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/2EgSSxD Amazon US - https://amzn.to/326uFmL Sabrent also make a really good quality 2.5" to 3.5" bay converter adapter (BK-PCBS) that I have used in the EX490/X510 to convert from HDD to SSD system drives. Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/3jbYBmT Amazon US - https://amzn.to/335kXQz Hopefully this information will prove useful to some looking to update their MicroServer.
