  1. Been running my HP Gen8 1610T on 6.02 (Jun) for a few years without problems. It serves my CCTV and general device storage/file serving. Several TB's of data on it now. Apple have made some changes in Catalina which are causing me problems with AFP now. It looks like the options I need to resolve this are not available on 6.02. So its probably time to update to 6.2. Been so long since I set this up I'm a little lost now. Has anyone done this same migration and can you point me to a guide that will work. Thanks NB: It's a bare metal install.
  2. Did the onboard NIC not work? I've got one running 5.2 which keeps having issues with the volume, so contemplating updating it to 6.1 at the same time as fixing that issue. EDIT: Being an idiot, its actually an N54l :D. But i'll leave the question up for the benefit of anyone with an N36l
  3. Anyone managed to do this bare metal on an N54L? I've got one which has been running fine on 5.2 (5664 update 5) serving CCTV setup. But noticed openvpn package isn't getting updates any longer, whereas my Gen 8 running 6.02 (8451 update 11) has received a few updates since.

DSM 6.0.2 can be download here: https://usdl.synology.com/download/DSM/ ... s_8451.pat Update 8 can be downloaded here: https://usdl.synology.com/download/DSM/ ... 3615xs.pat This is obviously for DS3615xs. Thanks, the guide worked well fro me on a HP Microserver Gen 8. For anyone else installing on a Gen 8, I didn't mod the SN (don't think its fair to use Synology Connect), but entered the correct VID/PID/MAC's. Had a strange occurrence after posting that message. I'd already applied update 8 and though i'd apply update 11 now. But after applying update 11 the box never cam

  6. Thanks. Fortunately doesnt appear to be anything that would affect my setup.
  7. Unfortunately not. Tried it on its own and the server failed to boot. So pulled it out packaged it for RMA to Amazon. Thanks for confirming 6GB works in yours, I'll just try another DIMM I guess. Or alternatively planning to get a Gen 8 to setup in another location, so perhaps use the 4GB from that and populate 16GB in the Gen8. Its only openvpn thats open to the world. Everything else is only accessible on the local network. Hoping thats ok, but not sure how updates work. i.e. If the openVPN plugin is standalone and I can update it through DSM, then I'm less worried about having port
  8. Couple of further questions. The box is behind a firewall, but I have remote access via the openvpn plugin. Therefore it is exposed on port 1194 and any exploits in open vpn server plugin. 1) Should I also enable DSM firewall? I presumed there was little it could do to prevent an exploit on 1194/openvpn as it would also need to be opened on the DSM firewall as it is on my own firewall. 2) can I install the Synology updates showing up under control panel? Ive read mention of checking they are safe to install, but can't seem to find the relevant threads. As it's open via openvpn, I'd lik
  9. Some further information regarding RAM. Looking at DSM interface it appears to sit at 8%. Given its only detecting 2GB, that suggests its using 163 MB. And that doesn't change even when I VPN in from iPhone and view all four cameras. Does that seem right? The cameras are set to trigger on line crossing/intrusion detection, so not many writes going on. But I would have expected it to use more.
  10. Hi, thank you for the welcome and taking the time to reply Sorry, can't believe I forgot to mention that, here goes: Hardware: HP N54L (1 x 4GB ECC & 1 x 2GB ECC, but only 2GB being detected).

  11. Hi, Thanks for all the guides/threads on how to setup Xpenelogy. Using them I've managed to get my N54L setup and also the OpenVPN plugin. I have a couple of questions issues outstanding, the answers to which I didn't find on the various threads: 1) All the guides say to leave the USB Key unplugged so the drives can go to sleep. Does this still apply if you've changed the VID & PID as per the instructions here: http://xpenology.me/how-to-update-boot-loader/ ? I presume not as DSM can no longer see the USB Key now. 2) The guides say to plug the key into the motherboard USB
