  1. Hello,


    I am unable to get access to DSM from the network with the following Baremetal config:

    Intel DH77DF motherboard

    Processor intel core i5 2500K

    RAM ddr3 balistix 1600mhz, 2x8G

    with a LSI MegaRaid 9260-8i card.


    The DSM info is:

    • DSM file: DSM_DS3615xs_25426.pat
    • Loader: jun v1.03b ds3615xs


    There is no error displayed in the console (I have the usual text mentioning "Happy hacking"), I am pretty sure I am not facing a cid/vid or mac issue, considering the number of tests and checks done. 

    When booting from Jun's loader, my machine is not accessible, no IP address has been granted by the DHCP, although the network card link light is blinking.

    It is really like the onboard network card is basically not recognized...


    I have tried:

    • Testing access from Synology Assistant or
    • 2 different USB keys on various USB ports
    • Various versions of Jun's loaders available, for different DSM versions
    • Updating the drivers (extra.lzma) with various versions of packages available
    • Playing with BIOS boot options (Legacy, UEFI)


    If I boot Ubuntu or ESXi from an USB on the same machine, the network works fine.


    I need to get logs to better understand what could be wrong.


    In such context, how can I access to the dmesg output?

    Some posts are referring to the serial, but I have no serial port but an usual screen :)

    I have tried to play with the loglevel kernel option in the grub.cfg, without any change.


    FYI: I already used ESXi on that system to run DSM: no network problem.


    Thank you

  2. One question for ESXi experts in the course of this thread: I finally opted to an ESXi DSM installation to workaround XPenology installation problems in Baremetal mode (I have an Intel DH77DF motherboard with a LSI MegaRaid 9260-8i card) but I am facing an issue:

    I have only one VM hosted under ESXi and I can't allocate it the 16 GB of RAM available, I am limited to around 12 GB. Posts on the net didn't help me much, because they were rather dealing with general resource reservation questions and vSphere, not useful for this case.

    Is there any hint or resource to properly grant all hardware resources to the VM running DSM?

  3. Hello,


    Est-ce que quelqu'un sait comment configurer le keyboard layout pour le passer en Francais avec Nanoboot (pour la console)?

    Cela me permettrait d'utiliser la console avec un clavier Azerty.


    En effet, j'ai régulièrement des problèmes de DHCP et pour le moment le seul moyen de rebooter le boitier est de le rallumer violemment.

    Le mode console me donnerai plus de possibilités.


    Ma config:


    DSM 5.0 4493 Update 3

  4. Hello,


    I successfully updated by N54L DSM-5.0 4493 Nanoboot based from Update 3 to Update 4 by:

    • Downloading the update
    • Executing the usual commands
      sed 's/flashupdateDeb/flashupdateDeb1/' / > /autoupd@te.info1
      mv /autoupd@te.info1 /

    • Installing the update


    Although I am able to access to the Synology web interface, the Synology assistant is stating that my NAS is not configured, starting the configuration wizard after each discovery!


    What should I do?

    How can I set it to the regular "configured" state without breaking my working setup?
