Molex Y splitters.
Haha for 4 drives off one molex? That's some daisy chaining haha
FWIW, for work we deploy Gen10 microservers for our clients. Since the availability dropped off in Australia, I've purchased probably 16 of them from eeeshop (Italy based). Always worked out to under $1k each even for the Opteron X3421 version, typically ordered 4 at a time, and they only charged AU$100 or so for shipping.
Yes there's be import duties when they arrived at our shores but all said and done ended up being only a little over $1k each.
When I went to order another 4 recently, I found they don't have Gen10 anymore, only the Gen10 Plus, so ordered 4 of those are only a little more ($100 more). Despite the basic version now being 2C/4T CPUs, they are much faster than the old 4C versions.
There is now also an optional iLO5 upgrade adapter that enables system management for about $150 I think, but we haven't had a need for these anyway.
Mine just died too... Which one did you get out of curiosity?
I got a spare microserver PSU if you are interested. Bought one thinking mine died and it turned out to be my UPS.
Nah it's all good, the PicoPSU works fine. Ended up repinning a molex cable from my modular PSU haha
Can anyone assist? (Not for sale here, likely selling to neighbour just want to know rough value)
Honestly, it should be priced similar to a desktop PCs w/ similar specs, which means very low to free.
the value of the system is in the drives, what could you get for the drives alone? That's about the value, honestly.
Hope that helps,
$100 mates rates to neighbour perhaps?
My N54L with custom Synology suddenly decided to crap itself.
It's super slow doing anything, and I can't browse anything now.
When i boot (took almost 10 mins), and logged in to the web interface, I got "Volume 1 on N54L has entered degraded mode [3/4]"
And a bunch of "Disk ST3000DM001-1CH166 is not within the operating temperature" (i have 3 of those disks at the moment, and one same size and brand (Seagate), but different model number)
How do i know which disk is causing the problem?
I have a new one 3TB drive of the same size and brand, but not sure which one to replace.
Edit: and under disk manager, I see nothing
so nothing in the logs ?
you should see something ...
I see an I/O error dated back october last year (can't remember which disk), and disk 2 having failed SMART test
edit: under HDD/SSD tab, i see nothing
"nothing" as in no disks listed or normal/no errors ??
as in, no disks listed
the web interface is non responsive now, as in i can't even get into the login page.
but I can still ssh to it.
pull the disks and reboot
leave the usb in though
use syno finder to see if the web server oage loads up
I'm able to see all the files through ssh (in /volume1/)
im guessing a repair/reinstall of the DSM partition is going to be required.
you might need to drop in a spare drive and then add the first drive back in to repair it.
once the first drive is back on line add the others and run the repair again
Thank you will do that.
But I'm scp ing my important files over to my other nas at the moment. I'll do that as soon as I'm done with the copying.
quick question, add the others while it is on or off?
Just making sure
ok, tried the disks one by one starting from disk 1, and found out that disk 4 is the one that failed
but my disk 2 failed the SMART test
I have a spare new drive, what should i do now? replace disk 2 without disk 4 or replace disk 4 with the new drive and still have disk 2 (failed smart test)?
