  1. 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 ...
  2. 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 ...

  5. 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.

  7. 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 ...

    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 ...

    Enabling SSH kills GUI

    I thought on that as well, but it isn't a baremetall installation, it's an ESXi virtual machine. Maybe I find a way, to open or mount a .vmdk (VMware Disc File) and change the ssh settings. Need to read a bit. Installed a second vm and retried to reproduce ... but on this machine it works. But the reason for enabling SSH was to to backup the /volume1/@appstore/SqueezeCenter/prefs directory of the Logitech Media Server. There all presets are stored ... I hope, I find a way to read that directory, then I could reinstall everything and restore the settings.

    Enabling SSH kills GUI

    Hi IG-88, no, the network is okay and the DS3617 VM is still running. On the 3617xs I have the Logitech Media Server and the SFTP server running. I can still connect to both ... All Logitech players are still working and I can up- and download from the VM. The connection to the GUI does not work and of course, SSH doesn't work as it was not enabled before the GUI froze.

    Forum Poll #1 - Feedback

    that might be correct ... Compared to a lot of other forums, the XPEnology forum runs on a high level ... Thank you for the good work you've done and your effort to keep it running. And not to forget, all your valuable support for people coming here to get help, I'm shure that it is really appreciated, even if it's not that obvious sometimes
