  1. Tinyupload links for DS3615 v4.8 and v4.9 seem to be down. Do you or anyone else have a mirror?

    No diskstation found within LAN

    Sure, I can try that. At the moment I have the onboard nic (RTL8111/8168/8411) and a pci nic (RTL8169). I was planning on using them both for link aggregation if possible. Do you know which is the troublesome module? Also, would it help to try a different disk station version than ds3615xs?

    I am using ds3615xs. Is this the correct DSM for my hardware? I would be happy to try another ramdisk, just seems strange that I was able to get it to boot and recognise before installation/migration.

    Thanks for the reply Polanskiman.

    No diskstation found within LAN

    So I tried 1.03b loader and DSM 6.2 23739.pat on a spare single hard drive with all the other drives disconnected. Diskstation was found and recognised as not installed. Ran the install, did the reboot and can't find it again. It must be something else about the configuration that is causing issues but I have no idea what...

    No diskstation found within LAN

    So I booted to Linux and mounted the RAID volume but couldn't find an xpenoboot or .xpenoboot folder to delete. I then setup Jun Loader 1.02b on the USB following the tutorial here. I went to find.synology.com and found the diskstation, it said that it recognised a DSM from a previous system and needed to repair the system. I chose repair, waited for it to complete and reboot, then had the same issue of diskstation not found on the LAN. Rebooted the NAS and chose Baremetal Reinstall and same issue - can't find the diskstation on the LAN. So I'm not really sure what to do at this point. I do have a copy of the data from the NAS so I will try to format the drives and run it again, but I'm not sure how to remove the drives from the RAID volume inside Linux. I used mdadm and lvm to mount the drives to check for the xpenoboot folder. *EDIT* Interestingly when I login to my router I don't see the NAS as a connected device, and yet I was able to see it there the first time and when I booted to reinstall on the newer loader. It seems something about the existing data is causing issues with DHCP or something, but I can't find a way to 'install from scratch' within the web manager initial setup so I think I will need to either format the volume and separate the drives or delete all files/folders from the volume that aren't specifically shares I've created. It seems other people are able to 'upgrade', 'migrate' or 'recover' their data, I'm not sure why I can't?

    How can I access the hard drives to delete the folder when I can't get into the web management?

    Thanks for this, I will try when I get home. So I find this folder on the USB stick with the loader?

    Hi All, I've just moved from a working 5.2 Xpenology to different hardware and trying to get 6.2 installed. I am using Jun's DSM 6.2 loader and trying to load DS3615XS_15284.PAT file. My hardware is below: Asus P8B75-M LX motherboard i3-3220 CPU Onboard SATA ports Onboard LAN Additional Marvell 88SE63xx/64xx PCI-e SATA card Additional ASMedia 106x PCI-e SATA card Additional TP-Link TG-3269 PCI Ethernet card I am able to boot from USB, go to find.synology.com and it recognises the DSM with data from a previous DSM and tells me I can migrate or do a clean install. I first tried to migrate and it went through the process then rebooted but was unable to find the DS on the LAN. I then rebooted again with the same issue. I chose baremetal reinstall option and the DSM is found with the option to migrate or clean install again. I chose reinstall, went through the process and reboot - unable to find DS on LAN again. Every time I choose the baremetal reinstall option I can find the DS on the LAN, but after installation and reboot it goes missing again. I will try to format the drives (data is backed up) and try to set everything up with 6.1 if I can't find a solution, but thought I'd check here and see if I'm missing something before I give up.

    Supported PCI-e Sata cards?

    Hi all, I'm looking to add an extra drive to my NAS but have used all the 6 onboard SATA ports from my motherboard. Are there any particular SATA expansion cards that are known to be working and supported by XPEnology?
  11. Hi all, I'm currently happily running DSM 5.2-5565 Update 2, as a model DS3615xs. I've got 6x 2TB drives with 9TB data available and 1x disk parity. I'd like to upgrade to DSM 6.1.7 on new hardware and bring across my 6x drives including all data and configuration and also add a 7th drive, but I'm not sure the best way to do this. Should I: 1) Install DSM 6.1.7 on the new hardware from scratch with no hard drives, then plug the 6 drives in and 'import' them, then 'import' the settings from my old NAS, then add the 7th drive once everything is running well? 2) Upgrade the old NAS to 6.1.7 then setup the new hardware also on 6.1.7 and 'import' the drives and settings from the old installation, then add the 7th drive? 3) Upgrade the old NAS to 6.1.7, add the 7th drive to the old NAS, then setup the new hardware and move everything across? Also, how do I safely transfer my existing RAID volume to new hardware, is it just a matter of making sure the same drives are in the same SATA ports on the new hard drive, then is there an option in the web management to 'import'? Thanks for you help!

    Upgrading and changing to different PC, advice?

    Turned out there was an issue with my microserver so at this point I haven't changed anything, I was thinking of building a specific small factor machine for xpe down the track.

    Micro-ITX build advice

    Hi Guys, I'm looking at changing my current tower running xpenology to a more compact NAS build. I'd like to utilise the current CPU (i3-4130), 5x 2TB Hard Drives and 16GB DDR3 RAM but replace motherboard with a mini-itx board and a compact case. I'm looking for recommendations about what people think are good compatible boards and cases with no driver or build issues. At the moment I am looking at the ASRock H97M-ITX/ac motherboard - http://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/h97m-itxac/ Case I am looking at either: U-NAS NSC-800 - http://www.u-nas.com/product/nsc800.html or Silverstone DS380 - http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=452 Any thoughts on these or other recommendations? Thanks!

    Update to 5.2-5644.5 5 from 5.2-5565.2

    Sounds like a great plan if I could afford all that storage! Currently I have 5x 2TB drives in raid5 which should be sufficient redundancy, I'm just concerned about potentially overwriting the data during upgrade... Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  15. Hi Guys, Looking to update my NAS to the latest version without losing any data/settings, but haven't updated before. Just want to make sure I'm doing it right before I dive in! Is this the correct procedure, if not can you tell me the correct way? Thanks! 1) Configuration backup from Control Panel 2) Create USB with XPEnoboot DS3615xs5.2-5644.5 img 3) Remove previous USB and Boot from newly created USB 4) This is where I am not sure.... How do I apply the latest PAT file, and can I just grab 5644 update 5 PAT or do I need to get 5644 then update manually in order? Also, will my data be safe? I have over 7TB of data and nothing else to store it on for the 'upgrade process'. Any feedback about the above and additional steps from 4 onwards are much appreciated!
