Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

The temps mentioned above aren't a problem. The fan will spin up when it needs to.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

When you say 6.1.7, does it mean, that it has same lm-sensors and fancontrol packages preinstalled, or how does it control them?

The fans are controlled using readynasd, software written by our engineering team.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

I noticed that on Ultra 6's there's an extra (unused) fan header that gives RPM indication when a fan is hooked up to it.
Is that fan then controlled or does the software *know* the Ultra 6 only came with 1 fan and thus ignores the other fan indication i.e. doesn't spool up or down with temps?

RN516 OS 6.5 with 6x6TB WD Red.

It is hard coded as to where to look for temps and what fan(s) to control.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

Good to have someone offer assistance.

However as I have no idea on how to follow these steps, or even how to get root login, I think it really sucks that the manufacturer i.e. Netgear, doesn't fix this either in firmware or otherwise, without the user requiring to hack into root access and then invalidate warranty/support just to fix something that should not be a problem!

This is why I will never buy another ReadyNAS! Crap support! Good by Netgear, hello Synology.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

It's quite a while since the previous post in the thread and things do change.

The fan speeds are set correctly on current OS6 firmware for all legacy x86 NAS. No need to do any hacks.

However do note that our support team supports running 4.2.x firmware on our legacy x86 products. If you do run OS6 on your legacy x86 NAS you can ask questions on the forums.

Synology also does not support upgrades to their latest OS series for legacy hardware that their users have pointed out is perfectly capable of running it.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

@mdgm-ntgr

and all:

 

I have my fan running at 888-900 and cpu temp 37C/99F & system 68C/154F...

Is there a way to increase the rpms so i get a bit of better cooling?

Or should i not be concerned about the temp levels? System has gone up to 72 and cpu have also been climbing.

 

In frontview only 1 fan is showing. Is that ok?

 

regards

The latest FW 6.4 seems to have broken the fan speeds on the old x86 hardware like the Pro series.

Installed an Intel Xeon X3230 in my ReadyNas Pro 6 ( RNDP6000-200 ) over the weekend with OS 6.4.0 installed. CPU temp runs around 48C. Fans and performance graphs seem to work just fine.

Good for you!  It seems that some of us who were running "fancontrol" from the early days of OS 6 are not so lucky.  I have two Pro 6's.  One that has been "Factory Default'ed" which works perfectly in every way, and one that has been running OS 6 from one of the very first versions that was capable of running on legacy hardware.  That one is having this problem:  https://community.netgear.com/t5/Using-your-ReadyNAS/Fan-CPU-in-enclosure-Internal-speed-is-below-th...  ever since I upgraded to version 6.4

Me hopes this gets resolved in the next version.  If not, it looks like I may have to start looking for a place to temporarily store 9 or 10 TB's of data, format, restore, rince, repeat. . .  Smiley Frustrated

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

On 6.4.1 with a Pro6 that was factory defaulted a few days ago and today the cpu fan shows as dead tho the system temp is fine (obviously the cpu fan is running). What do I do?

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

Install the Fancontrol, if you have already installed that rerun the powerconfig program

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

So the warning seemed to be a flash in the pan. I've done nothing, not even a reboot, and the fan seems to be fine now.. Reporting running and in the green. So maybe it really did stop for a second? Should I still install fancontrol? I did turn off email alerts for the fan but can still see logs and such..

Only install the fancontrol if you need to.

Hello.

can you provide additional config steps for fancontrol at 6.4.2? I'm new at linux.

I've got system fan 2220 RPM after one month powered-off device and now can't figure out how to fix this annoying noise!

tried update 6.4.1->6.4.2 but no luck.

 

thanks!

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

What are you looking for? Do you know how to SSH into your NAS Learn how to do that first Have you installed fancontrol? Go here https://community.netgear.com/t5/Using-your-ReadyNAS/Easy-fix-fan-temp-OS6-issues-on-x86-legacy-no-s... with root access, execute the following commands: issue each command and wait for it to finish apt-get update && apt-get upgrade apt-get install lm-sensors fancontrol echo "#fancontrol" > /etc/fancontrol then do /etc/init.d/fancontrol stop once it is stopped use pwmconfig to configur the fancontrol system this will setup things with a proper fan speed for the case fan. Have you tried to configure it? You can use vi to directly edit the fancontrol config file to make things work on your system (instructions for using VI are easily googled, I had to it was been many years since I used it)

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

 

I installed OS 6.5.0 which now has its own fancontrol in the NAS GUI. This sounded nice but the "quiet"setting is still too loud, much louder than when I was using fancontrol.

 

Now the fancontrol does not work anymre.

 

Any fixes to control the PWM settings of the new fancontrol?

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

I just did the 6.5.0 and the fan control is interesting at best.

It is reporting 10 fans. Fans 4-10 show zero rpm.

It is also showing  temp1-temp6 with temp2,3,4 with -128C temps. Cool! to say the least.

The temps are ok, it just appears that sensors for non existant devices are active.

How do I tell the system to disregard the missing sensors?
