      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.

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

    Congrats on the successful installation of XPEnology on your old H55! Do you use an i5/i7 CPU with AES-NI? Which mini-PCI-express SATA-controller did you use? Please note: two versions of the Zotac H55 ITX exist: The model with built in USB 3.0, the H55ITX-C-E, contains a Realtek (i.e. non-Intel) 1000Mbit network chip. The model H55ITX-A-E has an Intel 1000Mbit network chip. Generally, the Intel network-chip is less unreliable...
  2. Trial of Nanoboot (4493) -

    Never mind; the problem was resolved via a complete reformat of the attached hard drive
  3. Trial of Nanoboot (4493) -

    Hi! I have installed NanoBoot x86 on an Intel Pentium M x86 CPU/motherboard with an Intel NIC; I can boot up via USB and get to the Web-installation/migration page. Having tried to install several times, getting through the "updating" proces, I never get to the DSM log in page- I seem to be stuck on the DSM-install/migrate web-interface with a "configuration lost" - Migration possible- status. The console output indicates an execution error after starting to boot Startup Daemons, i.e. the web-management interface etc. Please see photo of boot-console here: http://peecee.dk/upload/view/437984 Edit: added picture of console with Debug boot: http://peecee.dk/upload/view/437990 Does anyone else that have a similar problem with either the x86 or x64 version? Any advice?
  4. Drivers requests for DSM 5.2

    Thank you Trantor, for Beta8! I will test and report back as soon as I have some spare time, perhaps this weekend. And thank you also for the extra work you've done to provide the pata_legacy version also
  5. Drivers requests for DSM 5.2

    Bad news for all of us with a ss4200 or other ICH7/ICH8(-M/-R) based motherboards, I guess??
  6. Drivers requests for DSM 5.2

    Trantor: sounds great! When do you plan on submitting Beta8 for testing? What's the status on pata_legacy?
  7. Drivers requests for DSM 5.2

    Trantor, Please include the pata_legacy again in your next (beta)version, thank you!
  8. Synology RS3413xs+ DSM 4.2-3211 x86

    Using RS3413xs_3211-x86-20130525, a 32MB USB drive, a Commell LV-675 and a Promise TX4310 controller I had problems getting the hard drive recognized. I tried all four SATA-ports the controller; on port 3 and 4, the installation would not continue with the disk format, but when connected to port 2 everything worked! Once installed, ports 3 and 4 worked. Perhaps folks having problems with SIL-based controllers when installing should try with all the available SATA-port? A newer version than RS3413xs_3211-x86-20130525 is also available in China; the newer version dated 20130802 supports EXT4 and WOL, as far as I can tell. I have found it on the Chinese NAS-site here: http://nas1.cn/thread-68929-1-3.html It can be downloaded from here (very slow!): http://pan.baidu.com/wap/link?uk=791559 ... 61&third=0 Google-translate lists the features as follows: 1.DSM already pre-installed, you can start the brush into the RAW file (2) support EXT4 file system format 3 Support Sandisk CZ33 PID / VID and ax88179 USB 3.0 card 4. grab physical NIC address 5 support WOL Other than the boot-drive, the newer version doesn't use a .pat-file, but instead it looks like it contains a pre-configured hard-drive image in EXT4 format, compressed to an .IMG-file to be put onto a harddrive. Login details/user/pass: admin. Has anyone tried the newer version dated 20130802?
  9. XPEnology gnoBoot

    Which version is appropriate for testing on real hardware?
  10. 4.3 issues

    I own an old 128 MB CompactFlash card; the XPEnology boot-files (the . IMG-file) fits that 128 MB drive. However, with more hardware drivers included, the boot drive requirements could be increased to e.g. 256 MB or more. Note, many of the current Synology-products have a flash-drive for booting that is only 16 MB.
  11. Trantor, I was wondering if you could try to make a test build suited to 32-bit CPUs? Given that the DS214play uses a 32-bit only (not able to process 64-bit) Intel Evansport SoC, the Intel Atom CE5335, it *must* be possible to compile and make a 32-bit version of XPEnology. I believe that a somewhat limited version of 4.2 was hacked, but it didn't work well and installation and setup was, well, cumbersome and limiting (file system usage limited to EXT2). Info from CPU-World: "The platform will support 32-bit Linux..." http://www.cpu-world.com/news_2012/2012 ... vices.html Evansport GPL: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dsgpl/f ... nsport%29/ Offering a 32-bit version opens up XPEnology usage for a whole range of older legacy hardware, such as the Intel 32-bit CPUs: Pentium 4, Core Duo, Pentium M etc. Looking forward to testing the v1.1. Do you have any idea of how many use XPEnology?
  12. Just a note: These might work well with XPEnology - intel NICs - Intel + Marvell SATA http://www.asrock.com/server/overview.a ... 2550R/U3S3 http://www.asrock.com/server/overview.a ... l=C2550D4I http://www.asrock.com/server/overview.a ... l=C2750D4I
  13. Does this release require a 64-bit capable CPU or will a 32-bit work, e.g. 32-bit Intel Pentium M 740 or Intel Core Duo T2500 ? Oh, and thanks for your work; I'll test it when exams are over in January '14.
