  1. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.3-25426 - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3615XS - Using custom extra.lzma: No - Installation type: BAREMETAL - HP ProLiant MicroServer GEN8 - Additional comment: Did not need, installed via Web GUI, reboot required
  2. Hello community. What if the output of my Xpenology (HP Microserver Gen8, bare metal, Juns loader 1.03b with no extra lzma, Version DS3615xs / 6.2.3 25426, no PCIE Network card, just the stock ones) ls /dev/synoboot* looks like this? /dev/synoboot /dev/synoboot1 /dev/synoboot2 /dev/synoboot3 Is it safe to install the normal way via the Control panel? Or the script has to be executed before? Thanks in advance.
  3. Thanks for great advice! Everything worked as expected. The 10 minutes when the box was not responding to ping took hours Hope this helps also others with same config. Gerat work!
  4. Found it: 1) Enable SSH and ssh into your DiskStation 2) Become root ( sudo -i ) 3) Make a mount point ( mkdir -p /tmp/mountMe ) 4) cd into /dev ( cd /dev ) 5) mount synoboot2 to your mount point ( mount -t vfat synoboot2 /tmp/mountMe ) Now I see the extra.lzma modified that has 4MiB in size so now I just replace the file with the original from 1.03b that has some 1,8MiB ? Then I use the web interface to manually install the DSM_DS3615xs_25426.pat? Please correct me if I am wrong.
  5. Can you please tell me how to overwrite the extra.lzma from the synoboot2 partition of the USB boot drive? I have tried to mount it but I got some error that I can not understand really.
  6. Thanks, I have found it.
  7. Thanks for this very useful advice. Can someone share the original extra.lzma file from Jun's loader 1.03b for us pretty please?
  8. In that case, what should I do when I wanted to upgrade to 6.2.3 when on the lzma for 6.2.X with DS3615xs? Do I have to create a new USB bootable without the extra lzma and the pat file of 6.2.3?
  9. I am using extra lzma + 6.2.2 DS3615xs. Is there a way how to check the version of the extra lzma?
  10. Well I use extra LZMA but I did not find the courage to try the update on my Gen8....yet. So I sort of have the same question.
  11. Well, I must admit, that this community is one of the best I've seen on the Interwebs. After 2 days I managed to make the HP Microserver Gen8 to work with the latest DSM update. All credits go to Jun and this community! Here is what I did in final to migrate form 1.02b + 3615sx running 6.1.x to current 1.03b + modded extras.lzma on 6.2.2 24922: 1. Prepare the USB like normally using 1.03b and editing grub.cfg (as you can find in the forums here) 2. download the modded extras.lzma from this topic and copy and replace the file onto your USB drive 2nd partition. 3. download the proper .pat file and extract rd.gz and zimage files and copy and replace them on the USB drive Your USB drive for migration is now ready. 4. Put the USB into the (internal) USB port and boot up 5. Follow the standard Migrate process that you can find on these forums Note there will be one more reboot than usual. Thanks so much to you guys for helping me doing this. I wish you all good luck and health during these hard times of Covud-19. P.S. Also the Let's Encrypt certificate now works too. You rock
  12. Thanks for the reply. So far I can tell that the test with blank drive went 100% OK with no surprises. One thing I noticed is, that after the first boot and install it rebooted once again. But then I was on the latest version running OK. Now I am going thru the real deal, currently Migration is being done. Fingers crossed. Last reboot now and I will be able to tell how it went. Will report back soon hopefully.
  13. Change of plans, I am removing all SATA drives and just put one testing drive into the box. I will lboot the prepared USB with the modded extra.lzma and the 2 other files taken from the 6.2.2 file. Will do a clean install and then try to update to see if the box goes brick or not. If not, I will prepare a USB the same way, put all original drives back and boot from it to try to perform the Migration process, while using the same pat file of 6.2.2. Will put kids to sleep and do it. My report will follow.
  14. I will try to do the Migrate process with the USB with updated files from the 6.2.2 pat file and the modded extras.lzma file first...
  15. Yeah, sure. I came thru a completely bricked system yesterday to a working system now, so yeah, I have backups
