  1. Just a short feedback. After installing loader 1.02b and DSM 6.1.4 as initial installation, all went fine, including updates to 6.1.7 Update 2. Now, the 10GBase-T card is recognised and shown in the virtual DS3615xs. As soon as the second one is up and the network 10G ready, I'm going to do some speed tests from hp Server to hp Server ...
  2. I guess, I'd rather go back to 6.1.7 ... the last release supporting higher Network speeds ... But this seems not to be as simple as thought. Lots of trouble so far ... but I keep trying
  3. As mentioned on several threads, the use of E1000e Adapter is mandatory to run 6.2 on ESXi 6.7. However, this has limitations on the speed. In my Microserver I have a 10GBase-T card, and with a virtual PC I have a 10GB connection (VMXNET3), with the XPE Synology (E1000e) it stays on 1GB. Is there any hope, that this might get changed sometimes with a new loader? I'd really love to backup from server to server over a 10GB link.
  4. Outcome of the installation/update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 1 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03b - DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: VM - ESXi 6.7 on hp ProLiant DL360p Gen8 (Dual Intel Xeon CPU E5-2640 @ 2.50GHz) - Additional comments: None
  5. Technically, the Synology NAS and Routers might not be that far apart. Has anyone looked into the possibility, to virtualize a Synology Router, e.g. the MR2200ac, primarily for the router and firewall functions? Or is this absolutely impossible? Thanks for your thoughts ...
  6. I installed it step by step according to this thread on 3 different ESXi servers without any issues. In the first step I chose synoboot.vmdk out of the zip file, linked under step one, the synoboot.img in step two I took out of the synoboot_3615.zip that can be downloaded via the link in step 2. One exception: Instead of the .pat in step 3 I downloaded the newest version directly from the synology server. No issues with 6.2.1 - Update 1. Then, I first installed it with two discs only, Sata 0.0 for the synoboot.vmdk in step one. As second disc I added a new 8GB disc on Sata 1.0. Additional discs I added after the VM is running as Sata 1.1 and Sata 1.2. If you've not followed the instructions correctly and did not remove the CD player, the system might try to boot from CD and you have two options: Remove the CD Player or adjust the boot order in the BIOS. Hope, this helps you troublesooting ...

  9. Did a fresh install on ESXi 6.7 Update 1 with Jun's Loader 1.03b and 3615xs ... Everything worked fine when following this tutorial except the ethernet setting. I changed the default to E1000e. Then I could install the latest DSM 6.2.1 (23824) without any issues and added a RDM mapped harddisk.

  11. Just a short confirmation, that this tutorial works with ESXI 6.5 as well, incl. a RDM mapped harddisk. However, I had to set the bootorder in BIOS manually as described in this thread. Can't upgrade ESXI to 6.7, DL360p Gen8 supports up to ESXI Release 6.5.0 Update 2 ...
  12. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 5 - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.02b - DS3617xs - Installation type: ESXi 6.5.0 - Additional comments: Requires reboot
  13. yes, works like a charm ...

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Don't think, that many people come to such a weird solution. Just try it out and let us know, how this scenario performs - if you get it running properly

    Enabling SSH kills GUI

    This morning I rebooted the vm (by a shutdown and restart on the ESXi GUI) and it did not come up properly. I could not access it in any way, therefore I needed to set it up again ... This time, I first enabled SSH before any other config, and now, I have the access through SSH. Unfortunately, I need the Logitech Media Server users to setup their clients again, as all settings are lost. But then, I should be able to backup the server.prefs file with all the settings ...
