    Tutorial: Install DSM 6.2 on ESXi 6.7

    @shax I ditched the whole DS3615 and went with the 1.04b loader and DS918 pat file. That worked like a charm. I think I must have messed it somewhere up but I have no idea where. Thank you for responding to my question.

    Tutorial: Install DSM 6.2 on ESXi 6.7

    I'm getting the error message: Failed to format the disk (35) after the discovery and upload of the PAT files. ESXi 6.7 fresh installation Loader 1.03b DSM_DS3615xs_23824.pat AND DSM_DS3615xs_23739.pat First drive to sata controller 1 on 0:0 2nd drive on sata controller 2 on 1:0 (16Gb) Tried 2 different hard disks Hitachi and Seagate but both gave the same error message. Any hints since I'm out of ideas?

    Xpenoboot - eth0 not RUNNING fixed

    Make sure you're using a PS/2 keyboard. My USB keyboard didn't work either and I had to dig out my old and trusty PS/2 one.

    Xpenoboot - eth0 not RUNNING fixed

    I have no idea why the NIC didn't get an IP address. The bootlog was too quick to tell whether there was any error. After the first reboot during the install II had to give it again manually an IP address but after the installation was completed, Xpenology saw my 2 NIC's and I was able to reboot the machine from the menu without any problems. (I did give the system a fixed IP address in Xpenology)
  7. While running Xpenoboot, my bootlog said; eth0 not RUNNING eth1 not RUNNING My machine didn't get an IP address. A bit strange because one of my NIC's, an i219-V is apparently supported. After some searching in the forum and googling I was able to find a workaround. However it took me quite some time so I'm posting it as a stand alone thread so others can find it more easily. 1) After the Xpenoboot installation ran, you end up with a sign in prompt. Use user-id "root" and a password that changes every day. and here is how you can generate it; Go to And past this piece of code in the editor and run the code in C. (more can be found here #include #include #include void main() { struct timeval tvTime; struct tm tmOutput; gettimeofday(&tvTime, 0); localtime_r(&(tvTime.tv_sec), &tmOutput); tmOutput.tm_mon += 1; printf("password for today is: %x%02d-%02x%02d\n\n", tmOutput.tm_mon, tmOutput.tm_mon, tmOutput.tm_mday, gcd(tmOutput.tm_mon, tmOutput.tm_mday)); } int gcd(int a, int b) { return (b?gcd(b,a%b):a); } Once you're in, you need to manually assign an IP address , the subnet mask and the gateway. Assuming you have 1 NIC called eth0 I'm going to adding it with IP address subnetmask and default gateway use the following 2 commands ifconfig eth0 netmask route add default gw eth0 Now your machine should have an IP address and you can continue to install Xpenology.
