  1. Great thread, I am running (and have been for quite some time) DSM 5.2-5967 Update 6 , and got tripped up by this latest Plex update too. I guess there will now be a whole bunch of us looking to update to DSM 6 ? 😲

    N54L - USB 3.0 Card recommendations?

    "this one" ? Sent from my MotoG3 using Tapatalk
  5. Hi all, I have a USB3.0 PCI E card in my N54L, and I find the performance a bit flakey, (which isn't great as it feeds my external drives used for backups!); also it is no longer available. I am looking to get a card for my parents N54L, and may look to replace mine at the same time, sooo... are there any cards that anyone would recommend (that are currently available), do I need to look for any particular chipset, or should I just be able to pickup any USB 3.0 PCI E (low profile) adaptor card from ebay and it should work? Thanks!

    Eject after backup - How to remount?

    Are you sure that is the case? I thought the whole worry of Synolocker was the fact that it infected and ran on the DSM directly, so would have access to everything that the NAS had access to.

    Eject after backup - How to remount?

    Ok, I already have the usbshares hidden from the network, and permissions removed so that only the XPEnology box itself can write to the drives, but I was concerned that my box could get infected with CryptoLocker-like ransomware, and then it would also corrupt my backups (if they were still mounted), is that not the case? I have tried the "mount" command (although not quite as you typed it) but get an error about the device not being in fstab: mount /volumeUSB1 mount: can't find /volumeUSB1 in /etc/fstab
  8. I have my server setup to perform weekly backups to an external USB drive; this all works fine. With the recent CryptoLocker-like issues I figured it is probably not a great idea to leave my external USB backup mounted all the time, so in the "Backup & Replication" job settings I have set the "Remove destination external device when backup task has successfully finished", and that too works well for me. However, I am then left in the situtation where in order to make the server 'see' the drive again I have to physically disconnect the usb and reconnect it, or (as I am commonly remote from the server) reboot the server so that it finds the usb drive again. What I really want is to be able to do something (either manually or scripted) that will allow me to re-mount the device prior to the backup. Does anyone know how to get Synology to un-eject an external USB device? Thanks!
  9. A VPN is something I have been wanting to setup for a while, but never seem to be able to get it to work. Is there a guide available somewhere? - I've looked through the GUIDES section on here and can't find anything. Did you check synology instructions? https://www.synology.com/en-global/know ... /vpn_setup The one place I didn't look! - Cheers! Sent from my MotoG3 using Tapatalk

    Updating the USB bootdrive in situ

    Cheers Benoire, can I ask did you use the ISO file or the IMG file? Sent from my MotoG3 using Tapatalk
  13. Hi, I realise I could try this, but due to the possibly destructive nature of it I thought I would ask first whether anyone has done it already. What I am looking to do is to be able to update the USB bootdisk whilst keeping it in the server. Some generic instructions I have found for writing images to USb devices via command line seem to imply that all that is involved is along the lines of: sudo umount /dev/sdb sudo dd if=/path/to/imagefile of=/dev/sdb Is that all it will take? If so should I use the XPEnoboot iso file, or the img file as the input to dd ? Many thanks all!

    CPU Throttle Script Tutorial

    5.2 5967 Update 1 here and the CPU throttle script still seems to be working its magic. I have 'upgraded' my way to here though, so perhaps it relied on something that was in earlier versions and now not present?

    Power off from the buttom

    Where does it get stuck? Have you done the checks to see if everything is running properly? I'll add some diagnostics tips here later when I'm on the pc. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk
