Thank you for the excellent tutorial. For the best part of the year, I've been running VM running DSM 5.2-5967.
I decided to run barebone fresh installation of this (DSM 6.1.4-15217 update 1) on a spare HP N36L Microserver. Everything works fine until the system is given a static IP and the system is restarted. I cant access the system via webgui, ssh or telnet - ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED. Re-installing/migrating the system with DHCP IP (192.168.1.49) works fine even after system restart.
It certainly not the way I'm setting the IP address it's a spare unused IP address. I've compared it to the VM build and its similar except the IP address (192.168.1.6). I suppose I can bind the IP address via the router but really want to fix this issue before moving data. Any ideas...
