    DSM 6.2-23739 Update 2

    - Outcome of the Upgrade: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: 6.1.7 u1 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03b - DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASUS H87-i PLUS with i3 CPU.. Upgrade kept all bonds in place (after 'migrate' install, which was through another temporary DHCP IP until the install completed - then it changed itself back to my static IPs). Internal NIC works fine..

    DSM 6.2.1-23824 - WARNING

    - Outcome of the installation: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: None.. This is a fresh install on 6.2.1 (23824) - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03b - DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASUS H87-i PLUS with i3 CPU.. Test install, on a spare disk, before trying an upgrade.. To my surprise the onboard AND add-in (4 port Intel) cards all work great. Even LACP bonded without an issue. Looking good.. Not sure whether to try an upgrade - from the existing 6.1.7 u1 install on the same hardware, but different set of disks - or wait until it's out of Beta.

    Which hardware to buy for Xpenology?

    The J3455 has a realtek controller too - though it works fine in 6.2 u2.. Currently it has problems with 6.2.1 - but I'm hoping that will be resolved in later versions of the loader.. Check the upgrades reporting forum and see whether anyone has a J5005 box and whether it's installed OK.. I'd stick with 6.2 for now.. Don't bother with 6.2.1 yet..

    Which hardware to buy for Xpenology?

    Asrock j3455 works fine for me and uses DDR3 Sodimm. Not sure how it is for transcoding (I don't do transcoding) but if you want some more power, there's the Asrock j5005 as well (though it's DDR4).. All works on 6.2 U2 (and also works, with exception of the NIC, in 6.2.1). Make sure you get the version with 4 Sata ports.. Because 4 is better than 2.. #H

    DSM 6.2.1-23824 - WARNING

    - Outcome of the installation/update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: None.. This is a fresh install on 6.2.1 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03b - DS3617xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - Asrock J3455 with single SATA drive and PCIe Intel NIC. 12GB RAM. This is the 4x SATA port version of the board. - Additional comments: Very important, as always, to get your VID/PID/serial correct.. After upgrade, my onboard NIC didn't show up - but the PCIe Intel NIC works OK. Read and write speeds are pretty good actually; 110-113MB/s. All over Gbit ethernet & CAT6. Thankfully it was a fresh test install - and not an upgrade (due to the onboard NIC).. More testing required..

  7. FYI. Theres already a tutorial for Workstation in the DSM installation, Virtual environment section..

    Wake On LAN wont work

    Yes.. Needs to be different.. You can find serial/mac generators after a simple Gooooooogle search..

    Slow transfers between DSM VM and Windows VM

    Which raid? 1 or 5? 5 is going to be slow - and your RAID card has no write caching, so it might be the culprit.. https://serverfault.com/questions/371843/why-has-vmware-esxi-5-slow-access-to-ibm-m1015-lsi-9240-8i-raid

  12. No joy for me, unfortunately.. Packages both install (and I set same password) but the virtualbox won't run, when I click 'run'.. It says 'loading' for a second or two, then nothing..

    Slow transfers between DSM VM and Windows VM

    Have you patched ESXi with the latest zip? Might be worthwhile. Might also be worth installing a fresh install of DSM straight into ESXi.. Far too many potential bottlenecks! 😕

    Slow transfers between DSM VM and Windows VM

    When you create a VM, you get the choice if thick or thin provisioning its storage. Thin provisioning means the storage isnt all allocated and grows up to the allocation (with an overhead). Thick means all storage is pre-allocated (better)..

    Slow transfers between DSM VM and Windows VM

    Are the datastores thin provisioned - because that can cause performance issues.. What sort of transfer speeds are you getting? 10MB/s, 100MB/s? Large file or lots of small files?
