  1. In case y'all did not take notice, this amazing guy from gitgub released an up-to-date open-vm-tools package 11.0.1-1 for Synology DSM. I'm using it on ESXi 7.0 with the latest DSM version 6.2.3 on XPEnology for DS918+ loader and it works perfectly! https://github.com/leonardw/synology-open-vm-tools/releases
  2. The script works like a charm, even with today's update to DSM 6.2.3-25426! Thank you a thousand times, @flyride
  3. Where has the script gone? It's not available for download anymore Edit: Oh f***, I had to login to make it available. Nevermind!
  4. Hi Sancome I tried to compile the latest open-vm-tools 10.3.10 by myself by using the Synology Package Creation Tool with an Ubuntu system for x86 apollolake architecture but I had no success. I was at the point when it successfully created a package after a lot of struggle and I thought that was it but the package itself was empty and I did not found out why. My knowledge is too limited I guess but I am really willing to learn. Any chance you would help me out with this? Maybe you already have a step-by-step instruction what to do? Thanks a lot in advance.
  5. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior to update: DSM 6.2.1-23824U6 - Loader version and model: Jun v1.04b - DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: VM - ESXi 6.7U1 on Supermicro E300-8D Server, including nested vDSM by using VMM - Additional comment: update to DSM 6.2.2 also SUCCESSFUL
  6. As it was driving me nuts not to find anything about how to compile open-vm-tools so that we can always have the latest version for our xpenology systems I decided to give it a shot by myself. Now this is where I am stuck into. It was a pain in the ass and a lot of reading until now but I don't want to give this up as I know many others asked for this too. Once it's done I will create a step-by-step tutorial about that and post it here. So guys...any help is very appreciated!
  7. Does somewhere exist a tutorial of how to compile open-vm-tools? I want to try that on my own so that I can always have the latest version for my xpenology system.
  8. - Outcome of the installation/update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.1-23824 - Update 1 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.04b - DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: VM - ESXi 6.7 Virtual Machine on Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU D-1518 - Additional comments: Works fine with nested vDSM running on it.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    I've just set up a new xpenology-system with loader 1.04b/918+ on vSphere 6.7U1 and wanted to set up a vDSM (virtual DSM) instance in VMM. I can set up everything without problems and the vDSM is starting but unfortunately it will not get an IP address from DHCP Server, instead it gets a default IP address (169.254.x.x). I already tried to disable security settings in port group settings as you can see in the screenshot but that did not change anything. The xpenology-VM itself is getting a DHCP address without problems VLAN Tagging/detagging is done by ESXi vSwitch so thi

    OMG, that really did the trick, dumb me! You are my hero for today. Thank you very much!

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Done. Installed them, did a reboot and still the same issue. I guess 1.04b is still too buggy for VMM. Can someone confirm the same behavior?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    No I haven't. Is this causing the issue?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Just to be sure: Will vDSM work on VirtualBox? I don't think so because I have to give it a valid license, right?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Okay, I will give it a try. Just for information as 1.04b is still beta and there may be some improvements in the future: I mentioned there is a problem with storage too. Everytime I boot up DSM the folowing error message comes up. But when I check the storage inside VMM it says that the storage is healthy.

    Okay, that worked fine, thanks a lot. I now uninstalled and re-instaled VMM but still the same as you can see on the screenshot. Am I the only one wih this issue?
