  1. just adding my two cents ... maybe it's not relevant for the issues on this thread. i'd to always boot in legacy mode for my NIC to work; boot via UEFI never seems to get an DHCP assigned IP address for my DS918+ build.
  2. have you check with your router's network/admin page (assuming you're using DHCP) to see whether your server is assigned an IP address? also, i boot my servers using the "legacy USB" option instead of "UEFI USB". dh22r

    Plex Server

    can anyone tell me the downsides of having a separate mini PC (i.e. intel nuc) to front as the plex server instead of using the DSM? my current setup is an asrock J1900DC-ITX in a fractal design node with 5 HDs (4 using onboard SATA, 1 using a iocreate SATA pci card). my DSM is ds3617xs on 6.2. the DSM is currently my plex server. if i buy a NUC J3455 (or J5005), install windows 10 home, install the latest plex server and add movies/TV media from the DSM, i can expect hw transcoding (enabled for plex pass holders) to work, right? thanks for any help. dh22r

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    did you try booting in legacy/BIOS instead of UEFI?
  6. my builds are: - asrock J3455-itx - ds3617xs - 1 x WD-red 3TB - asrock j1900d-itx (DC version, no PSU required) with 4-port iocrest sata card - ds3617xs - 5 x WD-red 3TB - zotac zbox (celeron j2597u) - ds3615sx - 1 x firecuda 2TB i couldn't get WOL working, but since all the build have low-powered CPUs, i leave them on all the time. dh22r
  7. i had similar issue with my server build's (asrock J3455-ITX, DS918+) network card not "registering" and getting an IP address assignment from my router. for me, the issue was i was booting via UEFI. once i switched to bios/legacy boot, the server was visible via my router (ie. IP address assigned) and working as expected. dh22r
  8. in my grub.cfg, i'd set the MAC address the same as the NIC's MAC address. should i be doing something different? thanks. dh22r
  9. i've the same iocrest 4-port sata card in my DS3617xs build (asrock j1900-itx). at this point, i'm using just one of the ports in my SHR setup, but everything works. dh22r
  10. nope ... on the migration/update page to DS918+, i chose to keep my existing data & configs when asked.
  11. I think I'd the same issues initially. Screen showing loader as booted, but not able to connect via the web GUI or visible via synology assistant. Turned out, for me, I had to boot with legacy bios (ie. not UEFI). dh22r
  12. just an update ... i'd forgotten to mention the above T30 issue was under DS3617sx. once i'd upgraded (sidegraded?) to DS918+, no issue running linux via VMM. weird? dhrr2
  13. i'm running 6.2 (baremetal) on the dell T30. i've installed virtual machine manager (vmm) and am able to create the VM. but whenever i boot up and try in run/install linux, keep getting "kernel panic" and "synching errors". same errors whether it's ubuntu or debian or mint. i've no issues running windows 10 pro though. any ideas? much appreciated. dh22r

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    i'd been using the asrock q1900 motherboard on 6.1 (baremetal) for about a year. earlier this week i upgraded to 6.2 with the 1.03b loader (after doing a hyper backup to an external drive). i also expanded my SHR pool from four WD red 3TB to five. no issues thus far.
  15. Just want to add my two cents ... I just updated my Q1900 (DS3617xs) -- baremetal, Jun 1.03b loader -- from 6.1 to 6.2. The upgrade was smooth EXCEPT, on reboot, my network "Lan 1" disappeared. I know there's nothing wrong with the onboard NIC as I can access the DSM web GUI. Not having the "network interface" enabled, I couldn't download "Update 2" nor could I run my packages (ie. Plex, Download Station). Following the advise on this this thread, I deleted the ".xenpoboot" and on reboot, the "Lan 1" returned and everything is working OK now.
