      DSM 6.2-23739   05/23/2018

      This is a MAJOR update of DSM. DO NOT UPDATE TO DSM 6.2 with Jun's loader 1.02b or earlier. Your box will be bricked.  You have been warned.   https://www.synology.com/en-global/releaseNote/DS3615xs Release note: Version: 6.2-23739   (2018-05-23) Important Note The update is expected to be available for all regions within the next few days, although the time of release in each region may vary slightly. Compatibility and Installation DSM 6.2 can only be installed on Synology products running DSM 6.0 and above. Starting from DSM 6.2, the core replication function is centrally managed by a new package, Replication Service. Packages with replication feature, such as Snapshot Replication, must install the Replication Service package. For the following models, DSM 6.2 will be the last upgradable version. DSM 6.2 will continue to receive critical and security updates for a minimum of 2 years after the official release. XS Series : RS3412xs, RS3412RPxs, RS3411xs, RS3411RPxs, DS3612xs, DS3611xs Plus Series : RS2212+, RS2212RP+, RS2211+, RS2211RP+, RS812+, RS812RP+, DS2411+, DS1812+, DS1512+, DS1511+, DS712+, DS412+, DS411+II, DS411+, DS213+, DS212+, DS211+, DS112+ Value Series : RS812, RS212, DS413, DS411, DS213, DS212, DS211, DS112, DS111 J Series : DS413j, DS411j, DS411slim, DS213air, DS212j, DS211j, DS112j Others : DDSM What’s New in DSM 6.2 DSM For easier management, Key Manager can now be stored locally on Synology NAS. Encrypted shared folders can be auto-mounted without the need of a USB drive. (To achieve better data protection, users are suggested to store Key Manager on an external USB drive.) Standard users can now right-click on shared folders in File Station to view Properties. Added support for IBM WebSphere SSO. Enhanced password strength policy for better account security. Added support for a new SMS provider SendinBlue and Clickatell API (RESTful). Added support for Thai language. Updated Privacy Statement and related settings in the installation flow. iSCSI Manager Brand new iSCSI Manager built for IT administrators, providing a new management user interface for an optimized iSCSI management and monitoring experience. Advanced LUN provides lightning-fast LUN snapshot creation and recovery, and LUN cloning within seconds, as well as VAAI/ODX, storage acceleration commands, and support for better VM performance. Since Advanced LUNs can utilize file system cache to provide better efficiency, block-level LUNs will no longer be supported on DSM 6.2 and onward. DSM 6.2 will still be compatible with the block-level LUNs upgraded from DSM 6.1 and prior. Supports cross-volume LUN clones. Added support for network binding settings to allow each iSCSI target to map to a network interface. Users can now disable storage reclamation for thin-provisioned LUNs to enhance I/O performance. Storage Manager The brand new Overview shows the health status of all storage components on your NAS, displaying a clearer and better look on the system overview. Introduced Storage Pool, a new storage component, to replace the original Disk Group and RAID Group, and rearrange storage-related functions to provide users with a more consistent and smoother experience. Smart Data Scrubbing detects the supported file system and RAID type to perform data scrubbing automatically while enhancing data scrubbing usability. A new built-in scheduler allows users to do data scrubbing periodically with just a few clicks, improving data integrity and consistency. RAID resync speed can now be adjusted to accommodate IT management needs. Users can remotely deactivate drives via Storage Manager for better management. Added a default monthly S.M.A.R.T. test on both new and existing drives that were not previously configured. After each DSM upgrade, DSM will remind users if a bad sector or lifespan alert is not set up.  The health status of disks is now uniform with storage pools and volumes. Log Center now includes disk logs. Provided an option to change stripe cache size when the RAID type of Storage pool is RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID F1, or SHR (three disks or above). High Availability Manager 2.0 High Availability Manager has been modularized into a package to ensure better system maintenance and offers greater update  flexibility. New mechanism can now eliminate unnecessary system reboot during major update to keep your cluster secure and maintain high service availability. SHA 2.0 can handle situations more effectively especially when the servers are in a vulnerable state. A simpler yet more intuitive user interface,  offering you a comprehensive cluster overview and management. The new interface design provides more detailed and visual information as well as easy-to-follow solutions. Brand new user interface is introduced to display more details of both active server and passive server, giving you an in-depth system utilization overview.  When first creating SHA cluster, user new to SHA can choose to only replicate system configuration to shorten setup time. Extended Btrfs File System Coverage Btrfs file system is now available on more Synology NAS models utilizing ARM platforms. Enjoy the powerful features of the next-generation file system. Applied Models: 18-series: DS218, DS418 and more x18 series to come.  Azure AD support Added the capability to join existing Azure AD as an SSO client. Utilizing the single sign-on feature, daily productivity is increased by saving time spent on re-authentication. Security Advisor User login details and abnormal geolocation information are dissected using intelligent analysis techniques and reported via DSM notifications.  Daily and monthly reports provide more comprehensive information, allowing IT administrator to review abnormal activity and security scan regularly. TLS/SSL Profile Level An advanced way to configure your security level profile based on different services to meet different security level requirements, providing flexibility to suit your network security requirements. 2-step authentication Synology NAS administrators must set up an email notification when 2-step authentication is enabled. Domain/LDAP management Flexibly assign specified domain groups with admin privileges. FTP Added ECDSA certificate support for FTPS connections. NFS Added NFS v4.1 multipathing for load balancing and network redundancy to fully support VMware vSphere® 6.5. Applied models: 18-series : DS3018xs, DS418play, DS918+, DS418j, DS418, DS718+, DS218+ 17-series : FS3017, FS2017, RS4017xs+, RS3617xs, RS3617RPxs, DS3617xs, RS3617xs+, RS18017xs+, DS1817+, DS1817, DS1517+, DS1517, RS217 16-series : RS2416RP+, RS2416+, RS18016xs+, DS416play, RS816, DS916+, DS416slim, DS416j, DS416, DS216play, DS716+II, DS716+, DS216j, DS216+II, DS216+, DS216, DS116 Package Center The brand new user interface design brings a more intuitive experience and allows users to quickly find everything they need. IHM tool Added Seagate IronWolf Health Management (IHM) support on DS118, DS218play, DS418j and DS418. Known Issues & Limitations DSM 6.2 is the last DSM version supporting IPv6 Tunneling in Network Interface. The Fedora utility will not be supported after DSM 6.2. Starting from DSM 6.2, the USB device drivers, including printers, cloud printers, DAC/speakers, Wi-Fi dongles, DTV dongles, LTE dongles, and Bluetooth dongles will no longer be updated. Wi-Fi dongle does not support Parental Control and Device List if set as Bridge Mode. Starting from DSM 6.2 Beta, Virtual Machine Manager will no longer support creating clusters with older DSM versions. Please update each host in the cluster to the same DSM version or above versions for the Virtual Machine Manager cluster to operate properly. SSH authentication by DSA public key is prohibited for security concerns. When logging in through VPN or Proxy server, some functionalities may have authentication issues. To fix this issue, please go to Control Panel > Security, and click the Trusted Proxies button to add the trusted proxy server to the list. The original RAID scrubbing scheduled tasks will be migrated to Smart Data Scrubbing scheduled tasks. If the upgrade is performed while running scheduled tasks, the Data Scrubbing process will automatically be re-executed shortly after the upgrade is completed.  Office 2.x and below are not compatible with DSM 6.2.  Hide

  1. DSM on QNAP Virtualization Station

    I ended up just using the attaching the ISO to cd-rom in VS 2.0 and then a SATA virtual disk. Set virtual bios to boot to ISO and away I went.
  2. DSM on QNAP Virtualization Station

    That is where I have been getting stuck at as well.
  3. I am curious as well as I just switched out my old qnap/xpenology box for a TS-453 running qnap. I have a friend who I support on Synology , so would be handy to have a small XPEnolgy VM running as needed to keep him supported.
  4. Synology releases DSM 5.2 Beta

    http://www.storagereview.com/synology_d ... a_released
  5. Like Xpenology, QNAP SO porting

    The other transcoding use case is that you have your media stored on your NAS, but want to stream it remotely to your phone/tablet device. Depending on media format and device capabilities, you may need to have HW transcoding to be able to do that. This saves the headache of having to pre-download/convert media files prior to going to the gym/etc.
  6. Like Xpenology, QNAP SO porting

    I have an older qnap that is running xpenology. I agree QNAP traditionally has had stronger hardware in their boxes (why I went with them over synology the last time), but the SW side is lacking. They have been playing catch-up in many areas to synology in their OS, and their mobile apps (especially for apple) are limited compared to Synology. I guess it really comes down to how you are going to use it. Great transcoding, but if their mobile app is lacking, what are you going to play it on??? One thing to note, I have seem many on the qnap forums getting the x53 families up to 16GB of memory (even though qnap/intel only say 8GB). While it is "unsupported" there are several posts about it working.
  7. NEW DSM 5.1-5004 AVAILABLE !!

    Damn man, I know your work. It was your work on Qnology that originally brought me here. Really hope you decide to stick around. There are those of us that both know of and respect the work you've done. I wouldn't have XPEnology running on my QNAP without your guidance. I think we also lost a fairly important link in all the post deletions. This is the link to Vortex's work related to getting DSM 5.1 on Thecus: http://forum.thecus.com/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=8448 I also am very familiar with Vortex's work from his QNology Qnap days and echo Jman's sentiments that I hope you will stick around and help with this Vortex. T.
  8. Install XPEnology on QNAP TS-653 Pro

    Xtreme - I sent you a note in the mail.
  9. There are some nice functions in 5.1.. as well as some improvements to security attack points I would imagine.
  10. Here is a link to a way to decrypt CryptoLocker files that was just released. I DO NOT know whether this will also work on SynoLocker files or not, but may be worth a shot for those who have been affected. http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/08/whitehats-recover-victims-keys-to-cryptolocker-ransomware/
  11. There appears to be an issue with the x64 4493 image file. I tried multiple ways of restoring it to a boot usb, but I kept getting non-bootable disk error. I ended up using the vfat image for 4482 and modified it for 4493.
  12. Shoudn't be a problem. I am assuming you are referring to leveraging the DSM upgrade function in the gui.
  13. Any issues with updating with Nanoboot? I believe it is basically the same as other than some drivers
  14. gnoboot & DSM 5.0-4482 - Experiences?

    There is a simple solution. BUY an actual Synology NAS. Absent of that, be thankful for the hard work that people like gnoBoot and Trantor put in to bring the synology platform to the rest of us. And yes there may be some speed bumps along the way, but lets get real... Synology owes us NOTHING as we haven't supported them through purchasing their product. Would I like the newest/latest/greatest update - sure.. but i don't feel ENTITLED to it.
