  1. Before installing XPEnology using DSM 7.x, you must select a DSM platform and loader. XPEnology supports a variety of platforms that enable specific hardware and software features. All platforms support a minimum of 4 CPU cores, 64GB of RAM, 10Gbe network cards and 16-disk arrays. Each can run "baremetal" as a stand-alone operating system OR as a virtual machine within a hypervisor. A few specific platforms are preferred for typical installs. Review the table and decision tree below to help you navigate the options. DSM 7.x LOADERS ARE DIFFERENT: A loader is required fo

  2. This is a simple guide and step by step tutorial on how I got tiny core red pill loader running and working on a proxmox server. This not the only way, just the way I do it and it seems to work. You will need a few things downloaded and ready to access on your local machine. The tiny core red pill image from @pocopico DOWNLOAD Putty for windows (or your mac equivalent) DOWNLOAD WinSCP for windows (or mac equivalent) DOWNLOAD and of course a working server with proxmox installed and running.

Features Add BRP_JUN_MOD=1 Add DS2422+ No need for bsp patch files anymore Support online installation of the latest DSM Support 7.0.1 upgrade to the latest DSM Build BRP_JUN_MOD=1 BRP_DEBUG=1 BRP_USER_CFG=user_config-ds918.json ./build-loader.sh 'DS918+' '7.0.1-42218' If you want to upgrade to 7.1 you may need to add redpill-misc ./ext-manager.sh add 'https://github.com/jumke

  4. So I migrated my xpenology server from DS918+ model to DS3622xs, and the nvme cache no longer works since the model number no longer exist in libsynonvme.so.1. I dig into the libsynonvme.so.1 and found it might check your pcie location to have the nvme drive works properly. After inspect the file, I found it just checks /etc.defaults/.extensionPorts and we just need to modify that. Here are the steps: 1. Check your nvme pci location(in my case it's 0000:00:01.0 udevadm info /dev/nvme0n1 P: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/nvme/nvme0/nvme0n1

  5. This was a previous attempt, but it failed. The way it works is to patch vmlinux with the first kernel and then boot with kexec Why use buildroot and not tinycore? Because I didn't find kexec and php available for tc Recently I found a way to rebuild zImage without compiling, so I tried to use the first kernel to patch vmlinux and then rebuild zImage and also use kexec to start, this time I successfully started the loader and it can be installed normally

  6. DSM 7 handles array creation somewhat differently than DSM 6.x. This tutorial will explain the new, less flexible behavior of DSM 7, provide historical context and offer practical solutions should the reader wish to create certain array configurations no longer possible via the DSM 7 UI. The structures described herein may also be useful toward an understanding of the configuration, troubleshooting and repair of DSM arrays. Be advised - over time, Synology has altered/evolved the definitions of the storage terms in its documentation and used in this tutorial. Additionally, many of

  8. 1.This is a shell script that executes several commands at once as described in the "Redpill Tinycore Loader DSM 7.1 Build" guide. To use, you can download and untar it as follows and use it in the /home/tc directory. Helps build DSM 7.1 by managing the PAT file directory required for decryption. ( It currently supports the latest version of the DSM, 7.1.0-42661 update 1 nanopack version. ) Automatically add mac2 to user_config.json file for dual NIC, a feature that TC doesn't have.

  9. I just posted a tutorial guide with step by step instructions and pictures on how to setup and install on Proxmox. The thread is waiting for approval from the moderators. I actually did it side by side as I wrote it to verify each and every step. And it all worked 100%.. I will post the link, however I dont know how long it will be until its approved.

  10. Thanks goes to @IG-88 for getting this sorted for me in the 6.2 build as the DS918+ only has 2 lan ports. edit synoinfo.conf located in /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf maxlanport="2" I changed it to 8. Also edit /etc/synoinfo.conf maxlanport="2" I changed it to 8 Reboot you now have all mac addresses showing Thanks goes to Pocopico and Peter Suh for helping me trying to get this sorted. Edit: Now I got my 10gb NIC working.

  11. Use any of your previous build methods, remember to add BRP_JUN_MOD=1 Backup previous img file, replace new custom.gz Can't simply replace img file. Because the zImage and rd.gz of the second partition are already the latest version

  12. @jumkey please remember to sync your redpill-misc to the one i've modified from my repo. Takes care of several other issues. redpill-load/include/loader-ext/target_exec.sh_ is also modified in my repo to allow extension colliding dependencies to load correctly.

  23. @pocopico modified TC 1 hour ago so that the user dts file I requested can be used. If you update now, the version will be upgraded to 0.7.1.0. Support for auto-compilation of custom dts files is the main feature of this version. thank you @pocopico The post below explains how to use it. And a function to view the version history has been added. But, where did the previous version history go? haha. tc@box:~$ ./rploader.sh version history 0.7.1.0 0.7.1.0 Added the history, version and enhanced patchdtc functio

  24. would this be a better package to use for virtio? https://github.com/pocopico/redpill-load/raw/develop/redpill-virtio/rpext-index.json Then again, looking through the v9fs files, it does mention the same modules and more: "kmods": { "virtio.ko": "", "virtio_ring.ko": "", "virtio_mmio.ko": "", "virtio_pci.ko": "", "virtio_blk.ko": "", "virtio_net.ko": "", "virtio_scsi.ko": "", "9pnet.ko": "", "9pnet_virtio.ko": "", "9p.ko": "" },

  25. Yeah my box has 64gig ram and it’s just me at home with a lot of spare time and - plex media to store/watch so in my use case… it’s definitely marginal. But I got the 2x NVMe card cheap / mobo supports bifurcation and the msi drives for extremely cheap it was worth the test.

  33. Well i was afraid of that : ata_piix ata_piix is not supported in DSM7. Modules will not compile. I've tried a lot of times. check your BIOS settings for AHCI or IDE mode. ONLY AHCI will work. Edit : unfortunately your onboard HBA does not support AHCI as per the table below (1C00 and 1C08): Reference : https://www.intel.com/content/dam/doc/design-guide/6-and-c200-chipset-specification-update.pdf and https://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/8086/1c08

  34. If the dtb was not patched correclty by rploader then your next best option would be to manual patch the model.dtb The process is not that difficult but its a two step process. Boot DSM and login with ssh or by http://<yourip>:7681 if you are in junior mode and provide the following info fdisk -l ls /sys/block cat /sys/block/*/device/*block*info

  35. L'utilisateur @pocopico a fait un travail remarquable pour installer DSM 7 en baremetal (c'est-à-dire directement sur une serveur) ou en virtuellement via une VM (Machine Virtuelle). Pour plus de détail allez ici Tout se base sur une image Linux avec la distribution TinyOS pour que vous puissiez construire le chargeur sur votre serveur via USB ou sur une installation VM (Machine Virtuelle) Ce tutoriel vidéo c'est pour Proxmox, mais si vous voulez l'utiliser pour une installation bareMetal ça sera possible aussi - cf sous la vidéo. -------

  36. With DS920+, if the second drive was not physically present in the machine when you built the loader, it probably won't be recognized. I just posted some contextual information in the Tutorials section here: https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/61634-dsm-7x-loaders-and-platforms/ You can try to rebuild the DS920+ loader with both drives connected, or you can go back to DS918+. The rebuild is probably a better choice for you so that you don't deal with the difficulty of backrevving.

  38. Hi just wanted to say that I have always had problems with xpenology with the max disk settings over 24-26 disk. I have never been able to figure out why? There would be random crashes of the disk array, some times would loose connection, and a list of other weird things. This goes all the way back to DSM 6.0, your mileage may vary tho. Just wanted others to be aware of my experiences with high drive count.

  45. Aus Mangel an Kernel-Sourcen für DSM7 werden die Treiber-Module nach bestem Wissen und Gewissen von pocopico mit entsprechenden vanila Kernel kompiliert. Syno's Kernel sind ziemlich verbogen (bspw. wilde Patches und Backports die so nicht in den vanila Kerneln vorkommen), so dass Treiber-Module die mit einem vanila Kernel gebaut werden nicht immer zum Syno-Kernel passen.

I found the solution how to make bottom drive works for EX485 (hope the rest models as well) with DSM 6.2-23739 as a DS3617xs: - prepare USB drive and other things as described in the video - DO NOT insert any HDD into trays - turn on your HP with prepared USB drive in the bottom USB port - find your server with Synology Assistant - when it will say that there is no any HDD installed, put your primary HDD to the 1st (bottom) tray and install .pat file Manually as described - VOILA. You may restart or switch off the server with the bottom drive installed and it will loa

  47. 15 - What is RAIDF1 and why would I want to use it? RAIDF1 a modification of RAID5, implemented with a customization of MDRAID (the disk array manager used by DSM). It is specifically tuned to minimize the likelihood of SSDs wearing out at the same time. SSDs have a finite lifespan based on the number of times they are written. This information is usually presented as a "wear indicator" or "life remaining" number from 100 (new) counting down to 0 (end of service life). Most operating systems, including DSM, monitor SSD health using SMART and will alert when devices near
