    Probably somewhere between the time hell freezes over and when pigs will start to take to the air. [emoji14] On a more serious note, I hope someone sues the sh*t out of them! Apparently they are releasing the source code when version 6.0.2 drops. That's apparently their source code base. What do you mean by 'drops'? They're currently at 6.0.2.8451, I think. So, you mean they'll release it at 6.0.3? At least it's good news they're releasing *something*. I hope they'll do it soon! Thanks for the info. Oh really? I thought they were still at 6.0.1. Information I had was that 6.0.2 was going to be their source code base.

    I had the same issue. Change sn=xxxxxx to custom_sn=xxxxxx Then it should work. Sent from my SM-G928I using Tapatalk

    Awesome! I have USB devices showing in my baremetal install! Woot! One thing I have noticed though - the Serial number doesn't show in 'Info Center'. EDIT: I got the serial number working by editing the isolinux.cfg file and changing sn=XXXXXXXX to custom_sn=XXXXXXX All working now!

    Hi m8, i'm trying your VM. I just changed CPU cores from 4 to 1 because I don't have so many cores available. I just start the VM after deploying OVF and let it run, but it hangs on "booting the kernel". any hint? It's not hung. That's just as far as the console goes. Open a browser to find.synology.com or use Synology Assistant and you should be able to discover it on your network. Sent from my SM-G928I using Tapatalk

    Got DSM6 baremetal booting however external USB devices do not show. The console says the SCSI disk has been attached but it doesn't bring it into the DSM Ui. Bummer. Sent from my SM-G928I using Tapatalk

    That's why I had to revert to DSM5. My USB drives weren't showing and I need them for my photos backup job. I could see that the drive was passed to the VM but DSM couldn't see it. I tried both USB2 and USB3 emulation but still didn't work.

    I had it working on ESXi6 as well. However my CPU didn't support vt-d so I couldn't pass through my disks to the vm and I didn't want to create volumes using my disks. I didnt use an IMG to set it up though. I used the ovf files backbon page 7. It worked great (except for quickconnect). Everything else was working wonderfully. @substorm - interested to hear how you go with Dynax's boot IMG on baremetal. Sent from my SM-G928I using Tapatalk

    What hardware do you have, Specifically NIC? What .img did you use on the boot USB? Also, What is 'Everything Works'? QuickConnect, Community Packages, etc?

    From what stout has said, He has baremetal DSM6 working. This includes btrfs but only with MANUALLY mounting the Volume first (this would need to be done at every boot). It seems he has official packages installing however I'm not sure about community ones. Perhaps @cstout could post his steps including the .img and .pat files he used to get his working? I have a similar machine at home that I might try with - providing enough of it works.

    ESXi - datastores vs RDM vs pass through disks

    If only the T20's were available in Australia. I'd hand over my cash right now! Haha. MN Instead I'll be having to do a custom build. Sent from my SM-G928I using Tapatalk

    I was able to create the SHR using PCIe passthrough using 3-3TB SATA drives and 2 64 GB SSD drives I used for cache. Can I ask what sata card you have for PCIe pass through? Also, did you have to create a RAID group first before creating the Volume? It seems I have to create a raid group and then can create a volume from there. But there is no SHR option. Sent from my SM-G928I using Tapatalk I just used a cheap 4-port marvell card. No I did not have to create a RAID group. The volume manager wizard created the SHR. Can you link me the card? All I can find are over $100. Sent from my SM-G928I using Tapatalk

    That's odd. I don't get the choice. I have to create a raid group and then volume second. Did you use the ova/ovf or install manually with the ISO? Sent from my SM-G928I using Tapatalk
