  1. This is amazing news and an awesome workaround! Please let us know if you figure out a way to directly boot windows!
  2. Yeah, it was a long shot. By all accounts it should have been pretty easy and straightforward to have that VMM working but for some reason it just doesn't work for me. I have reinstalled DSM twice now. I also have two ethernet ports. Both are on the same subnet. I dedicated one for cluster-to-cluster communication and tried assigning my VMs to the other one, but no luck.
  3. Anyone else using the virtual machine manager with their DSMs?
  4. Why did they disable SHR? I thought it was more flexible and probably better than raid.
  5. Running DSM 6.1.2-15132 baremetal. Everything working great except two issues: 1. Virtual Machine Manager doesn't allow me to noVNC connect to my instances. I can connect the first time during a VM installation, but once windows reboots the noVNC doesn't reconnect and will never connect to it again. I have been able to load the storage drivers during installation... noVNC is unable to reconnect or ever connect again after the first reboot. I tried loading a VMDK of another virtual machine created elsewhere and it won't connect either. 2. SHR is missing as an option during storage creation. I tried this a few times and same results each time. SHR is simply not available as an option. Anyone else experience these issues?

    Unable to format disk

    I'm not sure that works - the installation installs the PAT on all disks, including the boot right? Anyway, that's not the biggest issue. The biggest is why I can't get this to work in VirtualBox???

    Unable to format disk

    I'm creating a xpenology in a virtual box machine to test it out before putting it in a server. However, I cannot get past the error during DSM assistant installation "error formatting disk". I am following instructions here: http://idmedia.no/projects/xpenology/in ... -or-later/ I have injected a new SN and mac1 address in my syslinux.cfg and it looks like this below. The pat file I'm using is : DSM 5.2-5644 (28.10.15) And the bootloader is XPEnoboot DS3615xs 5.2-5644.1 The installation process formats the boot drive with the bootloader, so each time that it fails I need to recreate the vmdsk file and that's annoying. I get the same error (code 32) if I do the installation from the web page. Thanks in advance!
