I’m using a Jetson TX2+dev board in combination with: https://www.amazon.nl/gp/product/B07PJFZRRW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 a Sata controller, in order to hook up to 4 sata HDD’s to the jetson.
I have hooked up one SSD via the sata connection on the dev board, and I’ve hooked up two 4tb HDD’s via the PCIe to Sata controller.
My question is twofold:
How to setup the two HDD’s best, so they are accessible from mac, windows, linux?
reading up on the internet it seemed best to format as exfat. I tried parted, doesn’t have this function so I followed: https://appuals.com/how-to-format-a-drive-as-exfat-on-linux/ but now I ended up with two HDD’s which the jetson recognizes as 2tb instead of 4tb each. which I thought was due to partition table, so I followed: https://superuser.com/questions/1250895/converting-between-gpt-and-mbr-hard-drive-without-losing-data but still no succes. How should I proceed?
After the steps I did in #1, I suddenly get errors during booting like:
unable to mount /media
PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected, type=Physical Layer, id=0008(Receiver ID)
Multiple forum topics here talk about setting the PCIE ASPM to off in a config file. like here: PCIE x4, only 658MB/s
I’ve used the gunzip < /proc/config.gz | egrep ‘PCIEASPM’ command and I see
CONFIG_ PCIEASPM =y
CONFIG_ PCIEASPM _DEBUG is not set
CONFIG_ PCIEASPM _DEFAULT is not set
CONFIG_ PCIEASPM _POWERSAVE=y
CONFIG_ PCIEASPM _PERFORMANCE is not set
So I would like to try and turn off the PCIEASPM power saving. How would I do that? I found this: How to disable the PCIe ASPM on TX1 ? but I don’t know about which config file they are talking? And how to change it? Please ELI5 (Explain to me like i’m five)! I would be greatly thankful.
PS: My overall goal is to create a raid1 and later maybe raid4 with the Sata HDD’s, accessible over the internet. Like a NAS.
