      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

  1. Can we run QNAP code too?

    Soo I was digging around and found a German post on this board with this link. It was pretty neat and I thought it would be great to get the QNAP OS working. It looks more polished than the synology code and they seem to lay out a bit more information about the hardware that is used which could be useful for our home usage. I'd love to get this working bare metal on my Gen 8 microserver since it would allow for video output. I really want to have a NAS with the option to use it as an HTPC. To some it's asinine but to me it makes sense. I might just go buy a QNAP or Synology but why not play with the OS first? It would be epic to get this type of OS set up in such a way that we could easily add linux drivers for our own consumer grade hardware. http://wiki.qnap.com/w/index.php?title= ... -based_NAS viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3976&p=23691&hilit=QNAP#p23691
  2. XPEnology gnoBoot

    Everything seems to be working like a charm on the gen8 microserver with alpha 10
  3. XPEnology gnoBoot

    Gen8 Microserver on 5.0-4418 - first boot using alpha 10
  4. XPEnology gnoBoot

    The only image I have is alpha5. I still don't know how to update a zimage. If you'd like me to test alpha10 please send me a password. I've happily filled out the form but still haven't really got anywhere using alpha9 due to the zimage. I'm attempting to test baremetal gen8 microserver. I never tested alpha5 since I figured I'd update to the latest first. However, if you insist, I can test alpha5 and report back in order to get the password. While I appreciate your desire for feedback, I think simply requiring the form to be filled out before should suffice. There is no need to force people to work with you, we all support what you are doing and want you to have the greatest success.
  5. XPEnology gnoBoot

    I just submitted the google docs form to get permission to download the alpha7 image. I only have the alpha5 right now as well and ran into the same issue. I realize this is alpha but just supplying regular .img files would make everyone who's trying to test this have a much easier time.
  6. XPEnology gnoBoot

    Please forgive my noobiness but I'm trying to understand this zimage thing and it's not making sense to me. I've installed linux and i'm trying to find out how to update the old boot image with the new zimage but I can't quite figure that out. From what I gather the old boot image is a filesystem not a traditional image like a .iso. I have been trying for hours just to see the contents of the old alpha boot image with no success. On the flip side, I have figured out how vbox guest additions share folders work with a mac.
  7. System is getting ready. Please login later.

    These don't appear to be related to my issue. I'm not running DSM5 yet. Under the login screen it would simply say "System is getting ready. Please login later."
  8. System is getting ready. Please login later.

    You need to SSH into your synology using root and the password is your admin password. Beware, I'm not sure it's a permanent fix. For me, it appears to just get me far enough to login. Not everything is normal. Upon reboot, I have to SSH into it again.
  9. System is getting ready. Please login later.

    Thanks gnoboot! You are the man! I'm logged in now. Patience paid off for me waiting on a reply. I began to get panicky wanting to start from scratch, which would have taken hours to reconfigure.
  10. I was having trouble with sabnzbd and folder permissions so I tried to do a simple reboot. Now I can't login with any usernames through the web UI. The webserver thing from synology works but none of the other services I've installed are working except SSH. No sabnzbd, sickbeard, headphones, etc. If there's any way to fix this without killing my entire installation that'd be great. I have full SSH access although I don't know what I should do to fix it. Any help is appreciated. I'm running baremetal on a gen8 microserver.
  11. There's a new firmware update that brings the fans down to 27%. Still nowhere near the 6% you're likely getting with this method. I flashed it and it works okay. I updated through iLO since I didn't have an OS and it went smoothly. I used the file named CPQJ0612.B69. It was a bit of a pain to extract using my mac but that's all I have handy at the moment so I've uploaded the file to this link if anyone wants it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwdOXjhCCqWcUXhXcDJqRkxsNjQ/edit?usp=sharing Source: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-Netservers/MicroServer-Gen8-is-noisy/td-p/6171563/page/6#.UuaJfWTnZcw For what it's worth, I wasn't able to get past the ram limitation issue with ESXi 5.5 from the HP website. I haven't tried any other configurations.
  12. There's a somewhat half baked fan fix that seems to have helped a little bit. It brings the fans down to 27%. Still not really all that good but better. http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/ProLiant-S ... uaJfWTnZcw
  13. I just snagged one of these. Hopefully we can figure out the spin-down issue.
  14. ITX Hardware Selection - $400ish budget

    Da fuq happened to my original post? I've been peepin' this board i Just discovered today. An older socket but I could snag an i5 cheap on ebay that would fit the job. Also, is ECC memory important for this build? I'm kinda looking at building this with the intention for synology but potential to run FreeNAS or something else should this not pan out. Edit: here are the links I was looking at. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813182261 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-CPU- ... 27d9739d4f
  15. ITX Hardware Selection - $400ish budget

    What an excellent and comprehensive reply. I'll give it a thorough read and see what I come up with. I'll post results. If you say we can get HDD's to spin down, then I'll be in good shape. Getting a GNOME environment running sounds ideal although I have no idea where I'd start with that. Thanks a ton! I'll reply here again once I've figured out what I'll be doing. I've got a laptop that's got a cpu comparable to the G1610 so I'll test it out with plex streams and see how she handles it.
