Can you tell me more?

Didn't try that

Not fully, but I'll will write it down and upload it to git hub.

Well, I'm trying to get nfs running, but it seems you left it out from the kernel.

root@WDebian:/srv# systemctl status nfs-kernel-server.service -l

I'll upload later this week the .config and the DTS for the mainline kernel to my github.
But I can recompile the Kernel with nfs as well.

Cheers

I made some test with rsync and samba on an encrypted raid0 ext4-filesystem.

I get arround 50MB/s read/write performance with the cpu beeing arround 18% idle and having arround 45% iowait. So I guess this is the maximum I can reach with the old laptop disks I did put into the device. The device seems be able to go faster if the discs would. I think thi is a good result.

Power consupmtion varies between 7W and 12W.

I also installed owncloud with nginx and php-fpm, which also performs well.

For vpn-test also the tun device is missing from the kernel.

Looks good so far.

Thank you a lot. I'd be glad to try to compile a kernel myself, but this is not urgent. I have still not decided if I will use debian on the device or try to compile lede/openwrt for it. At least I guess I could fit lede/openwrt into the flash and have only the data on disks.

So I attached dts and .config for the mainline-kernel to this post.
Couldn't test the kernel today or provide a patch.

Thanks, but how do you compile it? Are you using the WD provided toolchain and the xbuild script?
Re: WD MyCloud Mirror Gen2 (BWVZ, GrandTeton)
November 29, 2016 11:53PM
Hey, no as its for the mainline / stabile kernel from kernel.org. I just used the gcc-linux-gunaebihf compiler with the debian toolchain.
So nothing from WD or Marvell.

Hi Peacemaker,

I managed to compile the kernel, but it doesn't boot. Do you maybe have an additional hint on how you integrate the dts-file and generate the uImage?

Thanks!

Hey Martin,
I updated the kernel and it boot's like charm.

So you can do this your own
export ARCH=arm make CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnuabihf-
cp armada-385-wd.dts arch/arm/boot/dts/
make menuconfig 
make zImage
make armada-385-wd.dtb
cat arch/arm/boot/zImage arch/arm/boot/dts/armada-385-wd.dtb > zImage+dts
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n 'WD-385' -d zImage+dts uImage

Hi peacemaker,

no I have no luck, I built the kernel like you said above, but still nothing happens after loading the kernel:

After that nothing happens anymore. I'm using your ramdisk unmodified and I'm using the debian jessie crosstoolchain installed via crossbuild-essential-armhf.

Do you have some idea?

Thanks!

Hey are you sure, that the armada-wd-385.dtb is build correct?
It looks that there might be a problem, cheers

Re: WD MyCloud Mirror Gen2 (BWVZ, GrandTeton)
December 02, 2016 09:36AM
Yes, I extracted the dtb from your uImage and compared it to the one generated during my kernel build:

mm@ovid:/mnt/src$ cmp dtbdump_2.dtb linux-4.8.6/arch/arm/boot/dts/armada-385-wd.dtb

Hi peacemaker,

I tried your uImage-4.8.11_wd-385 in your dropbox and it doesn't boot either.

Ok, I finally figured the problem out. When booting via the reset button from usb, the load adresses are different from booting via tftp and the size of the kernel seems to decide if it works or not. Booting the kernels via tftp works with your new one and also with the ones I compiled myself.

Thanks to this I managed to expose the red and blue hdd leds with the following change to your dts file.

good to know.
And thanks, I'll add your patch to my kernel and update my github.
Now the reset and WoL is missing :-)

I soldered two usb-serial adapters to the Welltrend micro to capture the reboot and hibernate sequence, since my tries with strace in the original firmware failed, because strace was killed too early.

Lines starting with > are sent to the micro, lines starting wit < are the answers of the micro.
The numbers in the begining are epoch % 1000 and milliseconds.

Here is what gets send to the micro controller in case of a reboot via web-interface:

I can wake the ex2 up with etherwake <MAC of ex2> after this.

The original firmware contains an extra binary for wakeonlan. After executing this manually in the original firmware, network connectivity is lost until I reboot the device.

Maybe this helps. Do you have your modified sources of the mcm-daemon somwhere?

I also observed, that when executing "service mcm-daemon stop" in Debian, the device immediatelly shuts off.
Re: WD MyCloud Mirror Gen2 (BWVZ, GrandTeton)

Woow, nice work with the soldering :-),
I'll upload the mcm-daemon to my github (you'll be welcome to contribute there:-))

I know, thats why it should be killed as the last process. Somehow there might be a delay in the code, but this delay is not working :-/

But you can have a look at the sources of A Boehler https://www.aboehler.at/hg/dns320l-daemon, I have only changed a few things, yet.
But over all he uses inipraser, what I don't like as this is no standard debian / ubuntu / arch package and somethings I would change as well, as the control over telnet.

Re: WD MyCloud Mirror Gen2 (BWVZ, GrandTeton)
December 08, 2016 06:42AM
Well, I aquired a third USB-serial adapter so I'm back in business with the serial console and booting the debian image.

I was not able to get wakeonlan working with debian by using the sniffed commands.

echo -e "\xfa\x26\x00\x01\x00\x01\xfb" > /dev/ttyS1
echo -e "\xfa\x26\x00\x04\x00\x01\xfb" > /dev/ttyS1
echo -e "\xfa\x26\x00\x04\x00\x01\xfb" > /dev/ttyS1
echo -e "\xfa\x26\x00\x01\x00\x01\xfb" > /dev/ttyS1
echo -e "\xfa\x03\x03\x01\x01\x01\xfb" > /dev/ttyS1

The device powers down and there seems no way to wake it, except by powercycling.

When looking at the original firmware, there are three ethernet interfaces available on the system. The main interface is egiga0 and there are two other interfaces named egiga1 and egiga2. I'm wondering if they might have to do something with the wakeonlan stuff.

I did an strace of the set_wol command in the original firmware:
execve("./usrsbin/set_wol", ["./usrsbin/set_wol"], [/* 8 vars */]) = 0
brk(0)                                  = 0x28000

Unfortunately I can make no sense out of it. It connects to the xmldb where it probably just changes the network status and does a series of private ioctl. I have no idea on how to find out what they are doing.

When executing the command manually in the original firmware, I get the following message written on the console:
egiga0: link down
egiga0: link up, full duplex, speed 1 Gbps
I can then echo the above sequence to the micro, the device shuts down and I can wake it up with etherwake.

If I don't use the command and send the sequence to the micro, the device reboots, when the ethernet cable is connected and shuts down when the cable is not connected, but powers on when I plug the cable back in. So this is quite strange and I have no more ideas on how to continue.

However rebooting the device with:
echo -e "\xfa\x03\x03\x02\x01\x0a\xfb" > /dev/ttyS1

works reliable in debian (and the original firmware). It shuts the power of for about half a second and the device reboots.

I guess the direction to continue is to make the device shutdown or reboot reliable in debian and forget about the wol stuff for now.

Yes, I fully agree to you. I see 2 - 3 ways to do so.

1. quick and dirty: 2 bash-scripts add them to the systemd shutdown and reboot command.
Maybe I'll do it for first to get shit down :-) + combine this with a new and better fan script and get rid of the command-daemon

2. rewrite the whole command script,.. lots of work and I'll realy poor in coding C, and not the best way.

3. Build Kernelmodul for the weltrend within Fan- ,RCT- , Powercontrol.
In my oppinon it would be the best way but I have realy no idea how to do that.

So if you have an other idea, or like to help with it go for it :-D

Otherwise: I'm now trying getting raid booting and an installscript working from the initrd as well as unlock an encrypted bootdevice via ssh

Hi Carl,

That sounds good, especially the encrypted boot-stuff via ssh (if you are bored, please include lvm :-).

I'd say the shortest option to get it to a at least usable state is 1) if it is possible. I'm not a particular fan of systemd which is now default in jessie and later and don't know much about it. I guess I'll have to learn it.

I'll have a look into 3) next week if I can find the hooks in the kernel to tap into for reboot and shutdown. I won't have time until Tuesday and it will probably take quite some time to figure things out. I wrote a very small kernel-module controlling an MCU about 12 years ago but have forgotten most of it.

As we have a sort of working fan solution, I'd try to implement reboot and shutdown first and later extend it to the fan, if at all. Userspace control of the fan isn't too bad after all. Look at all the fan-control stuff, replacing the bios on laptops. It's easier to adapt to the preferences of the user. I have no clear opinion on that yet.

I ordered a second ex2u since I want to keep the one with all the soldered wires for future research with the WD firmware. It should arrive on Monday and I'll start flashing kernels / ramdisks on that one.

Have a nice weekend.

Hi Carl,

ok, I'm back and the new ex2u arrived at my neighbor today. I did some research over the weekend online concerning kernel modules and according to what I found out this is probably no task for a kernel module. The reasons mentioned:

    * What can be done in userspace should be done in userspace.
    * Performance is not an issue.
    * We have a working driver which already claims the device and controls it correctly (aka serial_io).
    * serial access from within the kernel over the existing driver is possible but cumbersome as one would need to synchronize kernel access to the device with possible userspace access to the device.

The new module would be conflicting with the existing serial driver, which can't unloaded since it is need for the serial console. So after this research it's probably better to stick to the existing approach.

Did you find out something new regarding systemd and the possibility to execute commands that trigger shutdown/reboot or do you have strong reasons, why the hassle to claim the device from the existing driver would be worth it?

Hey Martin,
I didn't do much for the NAS this weekend as well :-) (fixing my crappy pogoplug was enough).

hm,.. I see the point, but still but let's say I'm not very happy with this.
To be clear I didn't thought about putting more control from userspace to kernel. I thought providing (virtual) devices by the kernel, that they can be access and controled from userspace: e.g. fan + temp as hwmon dev.
I think the great deal there would be: every distribution would work regardless systemd or not.

I thought we could pin the second serial to the "Weltrend" device via the *.dts and avoid so the conflicts beween serial_io / userspace <-> kernelmodule

If I get it right: in the orignal control daemon (its for a dlink dns327 and WD MCM gen1), there the Shutdown Signal should be delayed for 10 sec after the daemon is killed.
I have no idea how this delay work and if or how it "desides" between reboot and shutdown, main problem is maybe I don't know how the inipraser used there is working.
To workaround the "missing" delay I switched in the systemd file ( /etc/systemd/system/mcm-daemon.service) the dependency so that the process is killed as the last process and so poweroff the device -> but reboot does not work.

Get systemd shutdown / reboot better working the easy way would be to add a new programm (or 2) to /etc/systemd/system/reboot.target.wants and /etc/systemd/system/shutdown.target.wants to send the right signal at the right time.

But as I can't patch the mcm-daemon to this there is need for a new and better one without telnet^^. (for fancontrol we could use a python script for dns327 whats working as well)

So my hope with kernel-module was: we do not need to frickle arround with all of this as the kernel do the reboot, halt, that the rtc and so on,...

Ok, can you explain what the rtc has to do with that? As far as I understood the hardware, there is a battery for the marvel rtc on the board, which is supported by the kernel and seems to get used (at least with the plain debian stretch testinstall I did with my kernel). So what does the rtc do, that supposedly exists in the MCU?
Re: WD MyCloud Mirror Gen2 (BWVZ, GrandTeton)
December 13, 2016 12:50AM
For normal use the rtc in the mcu does not matter, so you a right.
But to get the alarmclock / rtc-wakeup working the mcu-rtc has to work, and be set correct.

Hi Carl,

I got my second ex2u modified for serial console and started to try booting flashed kernels.

With that I experienced the same problem as when booting from usb, that the kernel size matters if it succeeds or not.

You can check if the kernel would work from flash by using the following adresses:

tftp 0x00a00000 uImage ; tftp 0x00f00000 uRamdisk.jessie-sd; bootm 0x00a00000 0x00f00000

I have now a device that is booting from flash and will start now looking into the mcm-daemon.

Okay, so your right but, do you have a clou why this is a problem?

As with the different adress kernel boots and with wd-adresses it's loading but boot fails?

Re: WD MyCloud Mirror Gen2 (BWVZ, GrandTeton)

Hi Carl,

yes I have an idea, but didn't verify it exactly. The kernel get's loaded at 0x00a00000 and is uncompressing itself to 0x00008000. Witch means, that the kernel uncompressing itself is overwriting it's compressed image somewhere after 0x00a00000 - 0x00008000 = 10452992 bytes. Since the start of the compressed kernel image is already decompressed, it will happen somwhere between 10452992 and 10452992+imagesize bytes.

BTW. I'm trying to handle power off and restart in the kernel at the moment, but it keeps OOPSing. However my kernel function is called correctly, it just don't work yet since it crashes when I try to write to the serial port registers.
