19"rack mount NAS with my N1

Unread postby jit » Wed Aug 29, 2018 6:20 am

Hello all,

I finally finished my NAS with the fantastic N1 board (3rd layer from the top on the photo below) ;)
It's a 19" rack mount NAS that provides:
- one 5.25" drive bay
- one 3.5" drive bay
- some space for a 2.5 hdd or SSD.
- 2 activity leds in front

I know that the N1 is dead, but it is working very well for me !

If any interest, you can see more on my blog : http://www.bluemind.org/odroid-n1-enhanced-nas-19-rack/

Very nice set-up jit :)

Did you enable performance mode instead of powersave?

Code: Select all
echo performance | sudo tee /sys/module/pcie_aspm/parameters/policy

Very nice indeed! What are you using for software? (kernel/uboot/os)? I'm having some reboot hangs with mine and it can't quite move into production because of this yet.

@rooted : yes , I user performance mode over powersave for pci_aspm

@mad_ady: I use the provided uboot, a kernel I compiled myself from the official git repo and archlinuxarm. You can see all details on the blog post.

So far, it runs since several weeks now (24/7), very fast, stable, no crash (nfs, samba, docker, nightly disk mirroring).

Next step is to put ELK on it to manage all my docker's logs... but I need to finish my hc1 swarm cluster before :)
