  1. Yes I would never run XPenology in a Company setup ever for reasons not needed to write down, but for my home environment with backup of important data it's ok. Also for me this is just hobby and I'm trying to minimalize the amount of hardware I need at home. Today it works good with Xpenology 5.2 avd VirtualBox for FW (Pfsense), and other small test setup. The only problem is that I can't lock nics into virtualbox, means I need to set it up in Synology first and this creates some noise in the network. Extra modules I use in Synology are OpenHab and PLex. For me the only reason for upgrade to 6.1 are that I can upgrade to newer versions of Openhab and Plex (64 bit). Roy
  2. Thanks TG-88 for your insight. I'll try out as you say first and see if it meets my needs if it does I'll run a full scale test on my hardware to see if jun's loader handle it before I do upgrade.(anyway I need to make a full backup of the old server before upgrade not only important data
  3. Yes, I was thinking about virtualize XPEnology into VMWare side by side with Firewall. Since I think that would be a better solution rather than having the Firewall Virtualized in XPEnology with the network cards (nics) conflict it makes. of course having a small computer or FW box extra would be a solution, but then it starts growing with boxes again. Question: Will DSM 6 be able to lock nic into virtualized server or do I still needed to add it into DSM 6 with full IP setup? My production is for home environment so the critical here are the backups of my private data.
  4. Hi, I'm planning to update my Xpenology server from 5.2 to 6.x and wonder if I should rebuild everything from Xpenology on bare metal to Xpenology in a vmware virtual setup. Today I run Pfsense, openhab, plex in XPenology I got 5 Network cards, but if I want to use a network card in PFsense since this is running in virtual box I get a conflict with Xpenology since I need to add this network card to Synology first before I add it to virtualbox. I try not to do to much manual coding in Synology since it mean a lot to think about when upgrading versions. My major is to be able to run a steady Synology and Firewall hopefully also OpenHab, but not sure if I should swap over to vmware as the bottom layer. I also run other virtual maskins, It also seems hard to add new network cards and subnets without Synology is there to see and control. When running plex on Synology with several subnets it looks like plex takes the last subnet added to synology an believe that this is the default network. my HW is: HDD: 3 x Seagate NAS 3TB, 1 x 79 GB Mem: 4 x Crucial DDR3 BallistiX Sport 8GB MB: ASUS A88XM-PLUS, Socket-FM2+ Pros.: AMD A8-7600, Socket-FM2+ Any recommendations/experiences on using VMWare as bottom layer on my server instead of XPEnology? Regards RS

  6. I experienced this too, but after I downgraded the bootloader to XPEnoboot DS3615xs 5.2-5592.2 Virtualbox are working like a charm. I'm running latest version of DSM, DSM_5.2-5644 Update-5. rs
