      DSM 6.2-23739   05/23/2018

      This is a MAJOR update of DSM. DO NOT UPDATE TO DSM 6.2 with Jun's loader 1.02b or earlier. Your box will be bricked.  You have been warned.   https://www.synology.com/en-global/releaseNote/DS3615xs Release note: Version: 6.2-23739   (2018-05-23) Important Note The update is expected to be available for all regions within the next few days, although the time of release in each region may vary slightly. Compatibility and Installation DSM 6.2 can only be installed on Synology products running DSM 6.0 and above. Starting from DSM 6.2, the core replication function is centrally managed by a new package, Replication Service. Packages with replication feature, such as Snapshot Replication, must install the Replication Service package. For the following models, DSM 6.2 will be the last upgradable version. DSM 6.2 will continue to receive critical and security updates for a minimum of 2 years after the official release. XS Series : RS3412xs, RS3412RPxs, RS3411xs, RS3411RPxs, DS3612xs, DS3611xs Plus Series : RS2212+, RS2212RP+, RS2211+, RS2211RP+, RS812+, RS812RP+, DS2411+, DS1812+, DS1512+, DS1511+, DS712+, DS412+, DS411+II, DS411+, DS213+, DS212+, DS211+, DS112+ Value Series : RS812, RS212, DS413, DS411, DS213, DS212, DS211, DS112, DS111 J Series : DS413j, DS411j, DS411slim, DS213air, DS212j, DS211j, DS112j Others : DDSM What’s New in DSM 6.2 DSM For easier management, Key Manager can now be stored locally on Synology NAS. Encrypted shared folders can be auto-mounted without the need of a USB drive. (To achieve better data protection, users are suggested to store Key Manager on an external USB drive.) Standard users can now right-click on shared folders in File Station to view Properties. Added support for IBM WebSphere SSO. Enhanced password strength policy for better account security. Added support for a new SMS provider SendinBlue and Clickatell API (RESTful). Added support for Thai language. Updated Privacy Statement and related settings in the installation flow. iSCSI Manager Brand new iSCSI Manager built for IT administrators, providing a new management user interface for an optimized iSCSI management and monitoring experience. Advanced LUN provides lightning-fast LUN snapshot creation and recovery, and LUN cloning within seconds, as well as VAAI/ODX, storage acceleration commands, and support for better VM performance. Since Advanced LUNs can utilize file system cache to provide better efficiency, block-level LUNs will no longer be supported on DSM 6.2 and onward. DSM 6.2 will still be compatible with the block-level LUNs upgraded from DSM 6.1 and prior. Supports cross-volume LUN clones. Added support for network binding settings to allow each iSCSI target to map to a network interface. Users can now disable storage reclamation for thin-provisioned LUNs to enhance I/O performance. Storage Manager The brand new Overview shows the health status of all storage components on your NAS, displaying a clearer and better look on the system overview. Introduced Storage Pool, a new storage component, to replace the original Disk Group and RAID Group, and rearrange storage-related functions to provide users with a more consistent and smoother experience. Smart Data Scrubbing detects the supported file system and RAID type to perform data scrubbing automatically while enhancing data scrubbing usability. A new built-in scheduler allows users to do data scrubbing periodically with just a few clicks, improving data integrity and consistency. RAID resync speed can now be adjusted to accommodate IT management needs. Users can remotely deactivate drives via Storage Manager for better management. Added a default monthly S.M.A.R.T. test on both new and existing drives that were not previously configured. After each DSM upgrade, DSM will remind users if a bad sector or lifespan alert is not set up.  The health status of disks is now uniform with storage pools and volumes. Log Center now includes disk logs. Provided an option to change stripe cache size when the RAID type of Storage pool is RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID F1, or SHR (three disks or above). High Availability Manager 2.0 High Availability Manager has been modularized into a package to ensure better system maintenance and offers greater update  flexibility. New mechanism can now eliminate unnecessary system reboot during major update to keep your cluster secure and maintain high service availability. SHA 2.0 can handle situations more effectively especially when the servers are in a vulnerable state. A simpler yet more intuitive user interface,  offering you a comprehensive cluster overview and management. The new interface design provides more detailed and visual information as well as easy-to-follow solutions. Brand new user interface is introduced to display more details of both active server and passive server, giving you an in-depth system utilization overview.  When first creating SHA cluster, user new to SHA can choose to only replicate system configuration to shorten setup time. Extended Btrfs File System Coverage Btrfs file system is now available on more Synology NAS models utilizing ARM platforms. Enjoy the powerful features of the next-generation file system. Applied Models: 18-series: DS218, DS418 and more x18 series to come.  Azure AD support Added the capability to join existing Azure AD as an SSO client. Utilizing the single sign-on feature, daily productivity is increased by saving time spent on re-authentication. Security Advisor User login details and abnormal geolocation information are dissected using intelligent analysis techniques and reported via DSM notifications.  Daily and monthly reports provide more comprehensive information, allowing IT administrator to review abnormal activity and security scan regularly. TLS/SSL Profile Level An advanced way to configure your security level profile based on different services to meet different security level requirements, providing flexibility to suit your network security requirements. 2-step authentication Synology NAS administrators must set up an email notification when 2-step authentication is enabled. Domain/LDAP management Flexibly assign specified domain groups with admin privileges. FTP Added ECDSA certificate support for FTPS connections. NFS Added NFS v4.1 multipathing for load balancing and network redundancy to fully support VMware vSphere® 6.5.

IHM tool Added Seagate IronWolf Health Management (IHM) support on DS118, DS218play, DS418j and DS418. Known Issues & Limitations DSM 6.2 is the last DSM version supporting IPv6 Tunneling in Network Interface. The Fedora utility will not be supported after DSM 6.2. Starting from DSM 6.2, the USB device drivers, including printers, cloud printers, DAC/speakers, Wi-Fi dongles, DTV dongles, LTE dongles, and Bluetooth dongles will no longer be updated. Wi-Fi dongle does not support Parental Control and Device List if set as Bridge Mode. Starting from DSM 6.2 Beta, Virtual Machine Manager will no longer support creating clusters with older DSM versions. Please update each host in the cluster to the same DSM version or above versions for the Virtual Machine Manager cluster to operate properly. SSH authentication by DSA public key is prohibited for security concerns. When logging in through VPN or Proxy server, some functionalities may have authentication issues. To fix this issue, please go to Control Panel > Security, and click the Trusted Proxies button to add the trusted proxy server to the list. The original RAID scrubbing scheduled tasks will be migrated to Smart Data Scrubbing scheduled tasks. If the upgrade is performed while running scheduled tasks, the Data Scrubbing process will automatically be re-executed shortly after the upgrade is completed.  Office 2.x and below are not compatible with DSM 6.2.  Hide

  1. Good news and bad news, the good news is that the installation was successful. The bad news, I never got the serial to work and the 2nd bad news is that I don't know why the installation worked. I was using the latest Rufus to create the USBs and also tried previous versions of it, it's straightforward and when it worked with the Ver. 5 DSM I didn't give it any further thought. After going through the FAQs again I thought I give Win32DiskImager a go, it worked first time and also with all my USB sticks (4G, 8G & 16G, changed VID/PID for each one). Couldn't see any setups in Rufus that may cause the issue, its a mystery which I hate. The only possible reason I can think of is the first 15MB EFI system partition that once created cannot be erased under windows 10 disk-manager but I had to removed it using other third party software otherwise Win32Diskimager would fail when creating the image. Rufus on the other hand doesn't care which could be the problem.
  2. I was originally using the 1.02b, after it failed with various setups I then tried other loaders and each one failed. I basically sent you the last tried grub.cfg that was on the machine. Also with the mac address I tired two ways, firstly I generated a mac address from a serial number I had and secondly I used the adapters mac address and generated a serial from it, both setups made no difference. I will re-read the FAQs and see if I missed something important. Will come back with a progress report.
  3. I spent a day in trying to get this serial to work. There seems to be absolutely no signal on the serial line during the loader bootup and until the installation fails at 56%. I tested the coms port (set to 3F8 in bios IRQ4) in windows 7 and that works fine with all my serial devices such as programmers I have around. I even probed serial pin-2 & 3 using a scope, no data can be seen on the line. You also asked me to try a new serial number which I did with a new mac address and that came up with the same error (fails at 56%). I've attached the grub.cfg and the only changes you would see is the PID/VID of my USB stick. grub.cfg
  4. Hi, sorry for the delay, was away all week. Firstly, thank you Tanguero, I had removed everything from the PC except the hard disk and the loader flash usb but made no difference. Polanskiman, thank you for the suggestions, I have attached a Serial-USB cable with the following settings ( 9600 baud, 8-data bits, no-parity, 1-stop bit) but cannot communicate using HyperTerminal or TeraTerminal. Are these settings correct or do I need a separate software for communicating via the serial port?
  5. The BIOS settings are somewhat limited, the only related options I could change was to try both "IDE or AHCI" and the boot order to be "USB Hard disk", anything unnecessary has already been disabled. I also tried 6 different USB ports and checked the MD5 checksum using "certutil -hashfile dsm_ds3617xs_15217.pat MD5" which was successful when compared to "87a77046e3928ef350ba6ea19bfc4fdd". Furthermore, I always attempt the manual DSM install option first but I have tried the automatic which fails anyway.
  6. In fact last night I tried 4 other different USB sticks, all USB2 (4Gig, 2 x 8Gig and 16Gig). All had the same issue, and for each one I did update its PID/VID in grub.cfg. Could it be its storage controller? I have attached a JPEG showing the hardware when booted from its original OS. I have 2 x 2TB Seagate barracuda for the DSM but not shown as its disconnected when booting from windows.
  7. I just got back to the issue and checked the PID/VID of my USB stick, these were identical to the default settings in the grub.cfg file. USB details: USB\VID_058F&PID_6387\BTEM1AXA grub.cfg: set vid=0x058f set pid=0x6387
  8. I will go through all the configurations and report back later.
  9. If the VID/PID was incorrect I would imagine the loader would not boot but it seems to boot up correctly and so I'm assuming its correct.
  10. Thank you for your reply. Just tried DS3615xs and I have the exact same error message except it occurs at 44% instead of 56%.
  11. Hi, I'm new to this forum and after successfully installing DSM5 on my HP 6300 Pro (Intel Core-i5) I decided to install a fresh copy of DSM_DS3617xs but I keep getting an error once the installation reaches 56%. Full error is: " ! Failed to install the file. The file is probably corrupt. (13). ". I tried downloading the file a few times but it's the same error each time. I even tried a new hard disk on a different SATA port, no luck. I already searched this forum but the threads are not easy to follow and couldn't really find a solution. Does anyone have an idea of what this could be? Thank you.
