    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Sorry missed that part. Nice little box! In addition to what IG-88 suggests, have you tried running ESXI on the machine first and then hosting xpenology as a vm? 1.03b with 3615 is the most stable setup and if it's only for offsite backups you don't need hw transcoding. Good luck!

    Use 1.03b (DS3615xs) with 6.2.2 update 3 BUT add an external Intel based NIC (HP NC360t is a good cheap one). Realtek isn't supported anymore so even though it's updating you won't be able to see it on the network.
  3. Outcome of the installation/update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 2 - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.03b - DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - Chinese x79a1 MB / E5 1620 v2 / 32GB ECC / HP NC360T NIC / LSI 9220-8i / Disks: 8 x [4TB,3TB,2TB] motley mix of HDD, 2 x 256GB SSD - Additional comments: After reboot everything recognised and working
  4. Yeah me too. Seems to work better than 3617 from what I've seen on this site. Hopefully Jun gets DSM 7 working when it comes out.
  5. The Realtek NIC is not supported with 6.2.2. I had the same issue and bought a cheap hp nic that uses the intel chipset. Now everything works great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    6.2.1 u6 on DS3615 works with 1.03b for me. The only issue is that Synology removed the Realtek driver so I had to install an intel NIC to get ethernet working. What issues are you having?

    Chinese x79 mobo from ebay E5 1620 v2 CPU 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 ECC LSI 9220-8i (in IT mode) 8x SATA HDD (3tb and 2tb mix) 2x 850 EVO 256gb (cache) HP nc360t NIC (so that it works with 6.2.1) Define Mini case with 2x5.25->3x3.5" adapter Running Jun's 1.03b w/DS3615xs 6.2.1u4 That should be it. I'm going to add a 10gbe card at some point (why not) but I'm good for now. Hope this helps ... Berardino

    The shared link below is the best list I've found but it's only 6.1.7. Flyride is supposed to create a 6.2.1 version but I haven't seen it. My guess though is that 6.2.1 DS3615 hasn't changed much. The Synology site lists 3rd party HW they support (NICs is the most useful part) but it doesn't cover "built in" hardware. Hope this helps ... Berardino

    According to this 6.1.7 has the driver built in so it should still be included in 6.2.1 and should work. UPDATE: I just lsmod checked and it is still installed in 6.2.1 for DS3615 (what I'm running).

    Yes, I'm using 1.03b, 3615 and 9220-8i and running fine under 6.2.1 update 4. You nee to make sure you have a NIC that is intel e1000 based. I bought a cheap HP NC360T ($14 shipped to my door!) as my onboard NIC was realtek based.

    Thanks, hopefully Jun will figure out a new loader soon so that non-Synology drivers work

    Sure, attached. Just to test my theory, I commented out set sata_args completely and it still works perfectly. See screenshot of Storage Manager: 2x onboard SATA 6G (SSDs), 2x onboard SATA 3G (open), then 8x LSI ports (with raid array). I'm losing 2 onboard SATA 3G ports but that's not a problem right now. Hope this helps ... BTW Are you running 1.04b with 918 image? Does hw transcoding work with your E3-1276 v3 chip? Thanks, Berardino grub.cfg

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Figured it out sata_args is only used for VMWare/ESXI booting. If you look at the loadlinux function in grub.cfg it passes bootdev_args to the kernel. bootdev_args is evaluated using eval "set bootdev_args=\"\$${bootdev}_args\"" bootdev is the 2nd value passed to loadlinux and is "usb" for Baremetal and "sata" for VMWare/ESXI. So sata_args is only used for VMWare/ESXI and will have no impact on Baremetal. If you want to play with SataPortMap (which works perfectly for Baremetal BTW) then add it to "extra_args_3615" (3617, etc.) so that you're not modifying "common_args_3615". Hope this helps ...

    Only one sata in the chipset + LSI card. SataPortMap=48 works perfectly when I add it to "common_args_3615" in the grub config. See attached screenshot. (4 from onboard sata + 8 from LSI). (BTW Ignore the verifying hard disks, I was playing with DiskIdxMap and lost the raid for a moment ) The problem is when adding it to "sata_args", it doesn't work (6 from onboard sata + 8 from LSI) I had originally modified synoinfo.conf but wanted to get to a "stock" install to avoid updates removing the synoinfo.conf changes (happened before). dmesg is attached. Thanks, Berardino dmesg.txt
