Infamous Seagate Barracuda 3TB hard disk suddenly dead. Due to physical/raw disk mapping, DSM on ESXi cannot do S.M.A.R.T. test and ESXi does not alert as well….
Anyway, this time forget about ESXi, just install DSM 6.1. Planning to use docker for other applications in future.
For information to install, follow 2 links below
Some additional notes:
$ sudo lsusb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0781:5576 SanDisk Corp. Cruzer Facet
instead of OSFMount(Windows), edit grub.cfg by linux vm.
sudo fdisk -l synoboot.img
## 512 (secotr size?) * 2048 (start) = 1048576
sudo mount -o rw,loop,offset=1048576 ./synoboot.img /mnt/synoimg
HP MicroServer Gen8 has 2 NIC, so put to MAC addresses to grub.cfg as well
After installation completed, go to HP PS1810 switch webpage,
Trunks > Trunk Configuration
select “LCAP Active” and 2 ports for bonding
In DSM, control panel > networking > Network interface >
create “bond”, select IEEE 8022.3ad Dynamic link aggregation.
