  1. All fine.. Transfers to the file shares on the NAS (that VMM sits on) are 110 MB/sec Transfers to the other NAS (where I am copying files to from the VM) are fine if copying from anywhere other than the VM.. Again, about 110MB/sec. It's just when copying from the VM...
  2. Spoke too soon.. Back to around 12MB/sec Will try some other things.
  3. Thanks.. Is your Virtual Machine stored in VMM on the Synology NAS? edit.. Just tried changing the NIC type on the VM from e1000 to Virtio and there was an immediate improvement.. 70-80MB/sec. Still not as good as ithis VM used to be (when on VMWare Workstation) but a lot better than 10MB/sec.. Is Virtio the best NIC type to try?
  4. Anyone else have issues with crazy slow file transfers for VMs in VMM? DS918 j3455-itx w 12GB Ram.. Latest DSM. Single VM on SSD.. Copying files from VM to a remote NAS (that normally saturates a GBit link) gets 4-5MB/sec without Syno VM tools and about 9MB/sec with tools installed.. So slow I'm thinking of forgetting about Virtual Machines on my NAS.. Anyone seen this?
  5. You can add them.. You just need a legit Sn/Mac.. If it dies and you haven't backed up your licenses, you're screwed.. Synology will be VERY arsey about unregistering them (so you can re-add them).. We need a hack to workaround this for legit licenses....
  6. @vlaser How warm is your j3455-itx? Mine is in a case that's got holes like swiss-cheese AND I have a fan that blows onto the CPU heatsink (and hard drives).. I don't do transcoding yet.. Not sure what the point is - I play in whatever resolution the movie is already encoded in.. That might change once I'm forced to buy a 4K TV.. Though I'll see what difference, if any, it makes.. Have you tried different types of files for transcoding etc? Also, how does the CPU/RAM behave when you're doing it? It might also be DSM itself, ya know.. The latest Video Station update has a fix for "video transcoding failures"..
  7. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 3 - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.03b - DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: No - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASUS H87i-PLUS with i3 4th Gen CPU. Additional 2 port Intel NIC. - Additional comments: No issues, quick update and auto rebooted fine.. All NIC ports working - including integrated one.
  8. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 3 - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.04b - DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: Yes (strippped out some drivers) - Installation type: BAREMETAL - Asrock J3455-ITX. - Additional comments: Couple of reboots required - took a while.. Just leave it..
  9. Thanks.. Aye, had a null modem cable a loooooong time ago (no idea where it went) so I bought a little f/f null modem adapter (to convert it to null modem).. Looks like they sent the wrong one - I have a sneaking feeling it's straight through - will see if they can replace it..
  10. Just so I'm not going nuts.. Do desktop PC's console ports output (or can they output) information via the console port - eg, when booting Xpenology? I have a USB to serial cable that I've tested to a cisco router etc - works fine - but not to a Dell Optiplex console port.. Should this only work for Servers or should Desktop PCs output information too??
  11. Tixati... ZERO spyware/adware.. Use a VPN!!
  12. Ok thanks.. Performance for me just wasn't up to scratch - and I didn't like my files being stuck in a VMDK.. I like to be able to see my files if I plug my drive in somewhere else - and Hyperbackup does this for me.. Horses for courses!

    You need a valid Synology serial number to get a quickconnect ID.. Not worth the hassle if you don't have a legit one.. You could just use a VPN app to your router (on your phone) then connect to your Synology (once connected to your VPN).. I use that, rather than permanently opening a port to my Synology. My ISP also only charged a one-off fee (£5) to get a static IP address - which is handier than Dynamic..

    Easy... Buy a Synology box.. As far as getting DS3617 to work on that machine, I'm having the same problems.. No joy (so far) on my Optiplex 9010 with DS3617.. DS3615 works fine. By the way, 1.04b is for DS918+ only, AFAIK..
