    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Unsuccessful on Asrock J3455M, the micro-atx version. 6.1 works perfectly on this board. I suspect it's an issue with the onboard NIC. It looks like it boots up but the NIC doesn't initialize (light doesn't turn green). From other's posts, it sounds like the itx version works just fine. I tried using an intel NIC (Intel(R) Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter), that also did not work.
  2. To answer your question, it is possible. However, to go into further details would be a violation of the forum rules.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    I was a little paranoid so I took extra steps after I confirmed 6.2 was working on a spare drive. I actually tried to mimic my current install on the spare drive and did a test migration. That went well so I went ahead with my real disks.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Thanks Jun! Everything looks to be working on my box: Baremetal DS3617, Supermicro X10slm+-f, E3-1220v3, LSI 9211-8i (IT mode) Using both onboard SATA and HBA. Migrated disks with 6.1 to 6.2 with no issues.
  5. I booted up 6.2 again with the custom extra.lzma and got about the same error messages. It's super late when I was doing this and I may have done something wrong, but when trying to install DSM with only a drive connected to the HBA, the installer reported no disks detected. Installed dsm on a disk connected to the onboard sata and once booted, it can detect disks on the hba again.
  6. Thanks for all your work on these! My LSI 9211-8i (IT mode) came in yesterday and I did some testing on my 6.2 box. It's a Supermicro x10slm+-f with E3-1220v3. 6.2 is running well and stable on it with just the onboard SATA ports. Plugged in the LSI and booted with the standard loader. As expected, drives were not detected on the LSI card. Added the modified extra.lzma to the usb and it booted fine and disks were detected on the LSI card but with some issues. 1. Hotswap was broken, it's fine when plugging in but when a disk is taken out, dsm will crash and reboot. 2. S.M.A.R.T. data were missing on the disks plugged into the LSI card. Messed around with BIOS settings for a bit with no luck. To rule out if it's a hardware issue, I booted up 6.1(DS3617) with the 1.02b loader and everything appears to be working. Hotswap doesn't crash and S.M.A.R.T readings were available. I'm in no rush to transfer my "production" disks to this box so I'm open for more testing later. This is somewhat new to me so I don't know what kind of logs to pull and share at this time.

    Not OP but this is what I get with that command: {"success":false,"msg":"SN format is wrong."}

    I also have Plex pass and I did a manual install using a package from their site and now the hardware acceleration option is available. Plex works with it checked and doesn't crash, but since my system doesn't have an iGPU I'm pretty sure it doesn't do anything. As far as updates on stability, I have 6.2 up and running since tuesday(4 days) with no crashes or reboots. The stuff I've done so far are: file transfers, hyperbackup (usb backup and restore), VM manager and just installing random apps. I'll see if I can find some old drives this weekend and try to build an array and see how that goes.
  11. Loader version and type (918+): 1.03a2 DS918+ DSM version in use (including critical update): DSM 6.2-23739 Update 1 Using custom modules/ramdisk? If yes which one?: None Hardware details: MB: Supermicro X10SLM+-F, E3-1220v3, onboard NIC (Intel I210-AT), onboard SATA

    Oh I wasn't saying hardware acceleration was working, just that the check box to turn it on is available. I'm pretty sure checking that box will do nothing for that server. I installed Plex using just what's available in the package center.

    The one I'm testing 1.03a2 on is configured as DS918+. I actually just built this box yesterday and weighing in if I should jump into 6.2 or stay with 6.1 when I migrate my "production" disks.

    Good point, but the one with the hardware acceleration option is on a DL380-G7 (X5660 CPUs) which I don't believe have an iGPU either. I think Plex build for synology machines just don't have this option, which kind of make sense since it probably wouldn't work anyway.

    Plex transcoding is working. I forced playback to transcode and it was doing it. Got up to 3 streams before cpu is pegged at 100%. I'm not sure how accurate the cpu usage meter is, I feel like it shouldn't hit 100% on 3 transcodes. The option for hardware acceleration doesn't seem to be available for the DSM installed plex server.
