  1. Not much, i think its plex although can't be sure. If it was windows i would run current ports app to easily see what process is making the connection. Why isnt there something similar in linux? Yes I have uPnP disabled on my router.
  2. Hi, I've noticed using my router that sometimes there is some strange outgoing connections from my Synology to external IPs. It is definitely not open incoming, no ports are forwarded to it, so these are outgoing connections to external IPs destination port 23949 which is strange because its an unassigned port. These IPs according to ipinfo are mobile network ranges so that also seems strange to me. How can I tell what process is establishing these connections on Synology? I blocked one on my router a week or so ago and now there is another its connected to! Thanks
  3. I haven't upgraded to ESXi 7 yet. I know what you mean now, the web interface to manage VMs and a standalone host. I guess I should really move off the USBs to SSDs for ESXi as thats they way VMware is going for 7.0.3
  4. What hardware you using? Assume its only affecting your Xpenology VM, other VMs are running ok?
  5. Thanks for this, I'm about to upgrade and do use a USB drive for ESXi, however I don't see how it is due to accessing VMware Tools - surely they are only accessed when you upgrade them or install a new VM, once they are installed they are installed right?
  6. Is it the newer kernel that contains changes to (most) drivers what breaks the USB support?
  7. Hi R0bb0, I have almost exact same setup as you apart from the HP RAID card. How did you work out the DiskIdxMap=0C0005 and SataPortMap=152 ? Also if you a passing through the "onboard" controller Cougar Point AHCI, just like I do, what do you use for the ESXi datastore to store the VM files for Xpenology? Fyi, I passthrough the the "onboard" controller Cougar Point AHCI for the 4 x 3.5" Drives and 1 x SSD Cache on the SATA port onboard and have a PCIe SATA card for SSD datastore for ESXi Thanks
  8. Would this fix the numbering of the hard disks even though I'm not running 6.2.3 ?
  9. Amazing that this fixes it, I've also had mine for years and years, can these other very old folders be removed? .
  10. Is there a detailed list of all the settings/lines in grub.cfg what they do and what the options are? In particular these lines: Thanks
  11. I've actually looked at Server 2016 before as a replacement for SHR etc but didn't think it could the same job, as in thought it needed a whole bunch more drives and also SSDs??
  12. I have tried this, added SCSI Controller as LSI Logic SAS, setup the RDMs as pRDM in ESXi 6.5 but DSM doesn't then see the drives at all. It only seems to see them when they are on the SATA Controller which SMART obviously doesn't work for. What disk mode did you use? And which version of DSM?
  13. How do I find the var/messages log? Is that an ESXi log or DSM?
  14. Yeah I think I had a SCSI controller there before which I didn't need and wasn't doing anything but removed it, I bet DSM needs to do a reinstall to redetect the drives somehow? any ideas how to get it to do that? Although it doesn't really matter i suppose? Thanks
  15. Does your HDs start on Disk 2 (no Disk 1 because thats the boot loader and therefore hidden) with it running on ESXi ? This is same for me on 2 separate machines - passthrough and using RDMs.
  16. Thanks so if I clone the 2.4G partition I have a rollback if things go wrong? Would I also need to clone the swap 2G partition?
  17. I was looking at this because I had the thought of using clonezilla to clone the system partition before a DSM update then I have an easy way to rollback in the case of a failure or bricked installation. So looking at all the partitions, I assume sdb1, sdc1, sdd1 etc is the system partition in my system here? The 2.4G partition on each drive basically? I've only got 1 volume across 4 x 5TB drives so why do I have a 1.8TB and 931GB partition on every drive? Whats the 2GB partition for? Thanks
  18. But how does creating another VM to test DSM updates give you a backout because the VM only has the loader in it really, the actual changes are in a partition on the physical drives with the data in other partitions? unless you are using VMDKs on the physical disks?
  19. I would like this as well - the Celeron CPU in the Gen8 MicroServer along with many other CPUs I guess don't support a VM using I/O passthrough so the only options are RDMs or replace the CPU!

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Is the vid and pid in the grub.cfg important or used when running DSM on ESXi? If so what do you set it as? Thanks Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
