    DSM 6.2 Loader

    I don't think 1.04b supports your cpu (must be Haswell or later).
  2. ConnectX2 and 3, Intel 82599es based cards (x520-da1/2) will be fine. HP NC523SFP does not work.
  3. I got it to run on a R510 and with 1.03b loader, 6.2.23739 only (when updating to newer pat it will just not boot).

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Same here. I had been a loyal xpenology user since Jun's contribution on DS3615/17xs' first DSM 6.x loader, and they worked beautifully in many different hardware I've had hands on, J1900, J3455, N3x00/4X00, i5/7 4xxxes, QNAP NAS, ESXi, Nehalem/Haswell servers (PowerEdge Rx10/20s, IBM x3650-M3s), Ryzen 1700x, even on my current 9900k, they all run really well. I am also very grateful for his contributions. Currently I have it running on my R510 with 12x8 TB SATA + 2x1TB Micron SSDs as raid1 cache, an intel x520-DA1 and it performs very well. I would also love to have it running on more than 8 cores as it would be a good kvm/qemu hypervisor as well, but for now, the R510 is running on 8 cores (the L5640 has 6c12t, so 4 vcores are sort of wasted)

    Are the newer 1.03b and 1.04b loaders limited in terms of number of cores? I have different configurations (baremetal/hypervisors) that has >8 Cores but they will still show as 8.

  9. good to know. I have a Connectx-3 or x520-DA1 that i can throw in to make it compatible with 1.03B, but are you running 6.2.1? DS3617xs? or DS3615xs?
  10. Which particualr 1.03b are you using? because as I know the 1.03b loader doesn't work with the broadcom on the r510. Did you throw in an extra NIC for test?
  11. Much appreciated, now I know I can get a 82599 to work on the new whitebox I am buildling! thanks!
  12. Create the USB using rufus and make sure you have Partition Scheme at MBR and Target System is BIOS

    For Support on CPU architecture, here's a link. For natively supported NICs you can check synology website.
  14. Also to report, Mellanox ConnectX-3 MCX311A-XCAT Single Port SFP+ also works OOB for 1.03B DS3615xs (It's not a ConnectX-3 Pro, but the same driver works) To be accurate, there is a compliant list from Synology themselves which works just fine. https://www.synology.com/en-global/compatibility?search_by=category&category=network_interface_cards&p=1 Also, it seems like it's hardcoded to not able to add more than 2 NICs for the device, unless you disable PCIe NIC devices (in a physical baremetal environment), it is impossible (for now) to add a third NIC (i.e. you have two onboard 1Gbe and wishes to add a 10Gbe base T or SFP+)

    1) try non-uefi 2) use the older accepted 1.03b firmware (6.1.x) 3) make a serial output and examine the output text to see if there is anything wrong.
  16. I've tested out that the 1.03b firmware (DS3615xs) works natively with latest DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 4 with a Mellanox ConnectX-3 (single port SFP+) MCX311A-XCAT on a J3455 Intel Celeron. As IG-88 says, doesn't require extra.lzma drivers.
  17. Thanks for the quick response. I am indeed on 6.1.7u4 with 1.02b baremetal. I have a qnap 4bay nas that works fine with esxi on 1.04b with vmxnet3 drivers that works, which would be the current solution at the moment since I've tested connectx2/3 and they won't load up with netif_num and mac modified. I believe the drivers are not presented (have yet to try a x520 based card, since synology uses intel based sfp+ cards i believe)
  18. I'm using the same machine, but i believe it's your raid card acting up. Using H200 here and found no issues having all 14 drives recognized (12 bay model + 2 2.5 bays inside chassis)
  19. Does 1.04b support Mellanox Connectx-2/3/qlogics 10GBE sfp+ cards?

  22. Also note that the internal SATAs do not work if you have the 12-bay model of the r510 with h200/h310 cards.
  23. I got it all working, andy. I also am running a R510 with all 14 bays (12x 3.5s and 2x2.5s internal) working with onboard broadcom nic as well as my connectx-2 10Gbe as well. 1) make sure you are using 1.02b 2) make sure you are going only up to 6.1.7 update 2. Do not go into 6.2 3) download the extra.lzma that IG-88 made in the loader extra section of this forum 4) follow instructions to load the extra.lzma into the 2nd partition (30MB) of the synoboot.img You should be able to boot and install just fine with all that done.

    Works for me. But you need to perform a progressive update. Meaning, 1) You need a synoboot.img that's never been installed over/touched by DSM install (the one you wrote to your USB or the ESXI datastore, after you modified the serial) *****If you had already attempted any types of install or reconfigure on that usb/synoinfo.img, it is already useless, please note***** 2) You need to use the older PAT file, preferrably the one specified in your Synology Assistant indicated version (in this case, 6.2.x if you use 1.03b) 3) after the initial install is completed and initial setup is completed THEN you install 6.2.x. Through this method it always works for me, whether in ESXi or baremetal.
  25. Xeon X5670/L5640 (Nehalem EP) works fine (DSM 6.1.7). Loader: 1.02b Platform: DS3617xs Hardware: Dell PowerEdge R510/610, baremetal Baremetal mode works on 6.1.7u2 pat
