  1. Hello Folks, Fast forward from 2017, I have a legit running Thecus N2520 dual bay running Custom DSM 5.1-5022, that I was able to Convert from Thecus OS to Synology DS214Play using Vortex guide. I realize now Thecus forums are kaboom, and because this is not a Jun/ or like Synoboot its a custom something I dont even understand should I even risk upgrading it to DSM 6 or can I even do it? Yeah DSM 5.1 is old but for a backup NAS i dont really care as long as its working and not a dead brick. Vortex I believe customized the firmware for Thecus (mi
  2. Work / personal life got in the way. Was quite active here on in 2015/2017 i think. Here is my list of hardware, still works ! Thecus N2520 (frigging running DSM 5.1!! ooOOoo) - thanks to Vortex. HP N54L x 2 - on DSM 6.1.7-15284 Update 3 with 16GB ram upgraded on both DSM 1813+ DS109 DS213 QNAP TVS 871 Glad to be back, and I am no expert or developer, but love to be part of the Xpeno community.
  3. try to stay away from CXXX cpus that have a time ticker on them, sell of the asus b oard and get a cheaper but reliable one. I personally was planning to that same board i think b ut after reading about the CXXX failures, droppped it and your right it aint cheap either.
  4. wont the driver need be recompiled for 6.1, 6.1, thats what polanskiman told me last. I didnt get a chance yet , but some mellanox drivers I really want to get into DSM 6, 6.1
  5. Been busy, so just wanted to let you guys know I manage to setup a 2 node HA cluster succesfully. letting it do a test run, now
  6. Whatever boot loader it has its changing the MAC each time on boot! i need to find out how / why. Anyone has ANY ideas how to change serial number by logging into SSH? any specific directory to get into? I am familiar with linux. Thanks!
  7. What kind of hardware you have? Remove (take the HDD out) with only the bootloader USB stick inserted. power on, and let it boot to the boot loader. Find it on the synology assistant, and when it opens the web page, it will ask to insert HDD insert and then do a install.This Should NOT delete your data, however this can possibly clear your configurations (some settings in DSM like network , etc etc) no file should be erased.
  8. No I dont think DSM access without hard dirive that would be amazing lol. What I think ( am outside now cant verify), is I can see the Synology Assistant but it wants HDD present to first install the software I believe.Also, it is in fact DSM 5, i will verify later today 5.2 or 5.1 I have yet to test all USB ports, but they seem to working fine i only tested the front one.dang this thing runs blazingly fast, thecus are good at NAS hardware but CRAP OS, thecus OS sucks big time. @sbv3000 the Thecus you talk bout (DOM - Disk on Module), is on those models that
  9. Can i SSH and go to some directory to view / update the Serial or MAC? I alrready enabled SSH,
  10. I don't know what loader it using, how can i check? I can find it on synology assistant even without "any hard disk" yes something is on a CHIP inside i didnt open unit its very pretty white unit..i wish we had something like this for synology and these are from 2013 and guess what has Intel 1 GHZ CPU and 1 GB ram, so fast but am afraid any patching will break whatever is on it.and since its no a small USB i can remove and reflash Im afraid of brick the embedded CHIP. Thanks!
  11. I managed to get a used (awesome!) Thecus NAS N2520 with xpenology!! I did not see any removable USB stick so wonder how it was installed? unfortunately I got it from a place, where i dont know who or how they did this. I want to fix an issue, somehow it has a generic serial / mac and I need to see where this file is, mostly for updating to the correct MAC address.Its causing issue on DHCP, its picking up a random IP each time upon boot. Where is the IMG or Serial / Mac INFO stored for such an embedded system? I assume its DSM is on a embedded Storage like
  12. I do not think we have a current HCL (hardware compatibility list) and would like to take up this project, any help (to build / work on the list) will be appreciated.I will try doing this during my spare time. If you currently have a motherboard / build working / some features not working etc. Please post here, I will work on preparing a Wiki or HCL page (need to figure out where). Just brainstorming , any ideas / input appreciated. In this fashion: Motherboard: RAM(ecc or non ECC): HDD: type / config LAN: BareMetal or Virtual
  13. Have you tried doing the install and it failed? I think I read some threads people got it working using the force install? We only know if people report back, and yes we here I think dont yet have a HCL list (hope Im not wrong). I myself have HP AMD based N54la and it works, fine however can't say for other AMD based systems.
  14. Hiya all, I am not a very experienced developer, more of a sysadmin, linux admin, web site developer.However I am open to learning new things, and like to help the community. I have been using xpenology since DSM 5.2 however only got to use it seriously very recently. I am asking / suggesting an idea to get anyone who has some DEV skilss (linux, esx whatever) to come together and work in our free time, so we can continue the xpenology development, and not let it die.Its not dead, just saying actively contribute (and if we are a hard core team working togethe
  15. yes I also experienced same thing, however even after doing C1E and force install it would not find the DSM on the network for some weird reason.I powered on did force install without the 4 HDD plugged into the bays. Then when it came to the DSM no disk found page, I inserted all 4 one by one, and it worked. I did not do migrate, just did new installation like you. Thanks for posting back.
