    Progress of 6.2 loader

    Awesome testing, thanks so much!

    Did you test to see if Plex server transcoding was working? I can understand transcoding not working for Synology's built in apps, but having it not work for Plex would be an issue.

    No problem, it is people like you that make Synology lock down there systems and make it more difficult for us because you take advantage of there services they provide for paying customers. It is very easy to be able to get your own DDNS service for free, as well as the other services Synology offers. Why take advantage and ruin it for everyone?

    No, buy Synology to have a valid serial, otherwise you don't get to take advantage of some of there services. I think that is a fair trade off for us to be able to build our own custom systems using Xpenology.

    I am pretty sure if you buy one, it will come with a valid serial number.

    Huge thanks to @IG-88 for packaging the 9211 drivers! I have 2 of those cards I use for my array, but I am currently using a 2600k CPU, so it looks like it will be time to upgrade. I will do some testing with my current array disconnected and see how it all pans out and let everyone know the results.

    I am curious how many drives you have in a volume and how many volumes. My Specs for reference P8Z68-V/GEN3 Motherboard i7-2600k CPU @ 3.4Ghz 16GB RAM 2 x PERC H310 crossflashed to LSI-9211-8i IT Mode 7 x 3TB WD Red 4 x 4TB WD Red All in a Rosewill 4U 15 bay chassis. Currently on the 1.01 loader with DSM 6.1.7-15284

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    You can check my post from March 12th 2017 where I commented during and after my upgrade and I have been having zero issues since. I run Plex, docker containers with several programs, and have 7 x 3TB drives in 1 array and another 3 x drives 2TB drives in a separate array. So I would say Alpha is running just fine. I have not followed up much since I read that the source code was released. If it really was released, then I would imagine there are people working on something shinier as we speak.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I was able to get myself all squared away, even with the time change against me haha. But I really appreciate you responding to my question, thanks you!
  12. Amazing write-up! Thank you for taking the time to put it together for the community.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I found this post in here by jun in response to a question about mounting the primary partitions. jun wrote: DSM seems by default create system raid arrary with big endian metadata, and normally x86 devices use little endian metadata on these arrays so /dev/md0 can not be auto detected by normal linux distributions, unless you could find a big endian linux box But linux hackers are kind enough to provide some obscure command line options to make peoples life easier. you can use follow command to exam foreign endian arrary members mdadm -Ee0.swap /dev/sda1 and use follow command to assemble an arrary and fix byte order in one go mdadm -AU byteorder /dev/md0 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 ... DSM will convert it back to its preferred endian on next boot, so no further action requried. I attempted the commands and got some mixed results, but no mounted drives, I have 7 drives in this array. sudo mdadm -AU byteorder /dev/md0 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 mdadm: /dev/md0 assembled from 2 drives, need 7 to start --run to insist Now I thought that might be incorrect so next I ran it with all 7 sudo mdadm -AU byteorder /dev/md0 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 /dev/sde1 /dev/sdf1 /dev/sdg1 mdadm: no super block found on /dev/sda1 (expected magic a92349b, got f987efd4) Then I just got the same error trying the first command and decided to reboot and here I am haha. ***Update after the reboot I was still getting the magic number error command and I ran mdadm -A -s AND BOOM! It loaded BOTH partitions! Time to make some changes and see if the lib/modules cp fixes my box as well. ***Update 2 When I put my USB flash for jun loader back in it booted me up and prompted me to reinstall synology and then said it was formatting the system partition and what not and has now rebooted again and now I am setting it up from scratch it looks like, setting the device name, username, etc etc. Now that I have completed the setup, I see that my important data is still intact, but all of my Synology config is lost, which I can live with!!

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Quick question for ya @plutoGhost I am booting with Ubuntu and mdadm -A -s and got my array built and accessible, but I am only able to see my storage data partition, not the primary Synology partition? How can I mount the other partition on the array with the lib/modules folder? Thanks!

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I have this LSI controller. The new loader is able to load but after DSM install, it is not responsive to any power commands via DSM web GUI, eg. Shutdown or restart. Anyone else experiencing power issues? I am also using the 9211-8i and it works flawlessly with both of the latest loaders. The disk order makes no sense, but I can live with that. Shutdown / reboot works fine as well. I really appreciate you guys getting back to me about your own personal experiences. I will probably go ahead and upgrade this week and let you guys know how it goes. Thanks!
