      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. Applied models: 18-series : DS3018xs, DS418play, DS918+, DS418j, DS418, DS718+, DS218+ 17-series : FS3017, FS2017, RS4017xs+, RS3617xs, RS3617RPxs, DS3617xs, RS3617xs+, RS18017xs+, DS1817+, DS1817, DS1517+, DS1517, RS217 16-series : RS2416RP+, RS2416+, RS18016xs+, DS416play, RS816, DS916+, DS416slim, DS416j, DS416, DS216play, DS716+II, DS716+, DS216j, DS216+II, DS216+, DS216, DS116 Package Center The brand new user interface design brings a more intuitive experience and allows users to quickly find everything they need. 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. Hi All, I just finshed installing N5200 Pro with 32 bits version of Xpenology. Unfortunately i'm only able to use the DS411 DSM 2.3 on this box, all other 36xx and 34xx version don't work on this box, they hang during the disk init. Does anyone have a later version of DSM working on 5200? Or is it possible to inject drivers on the DS36xx version to get the storage controller working? Any help to get a newer version is most welcome, unfortunately i cannot use X86_x64 versions as the cpu is I686. Cheers, Hemant
  2. Thanks IG-88, For the test I Installed OMV on that box wthout changing anyting, just to check weather i can see all the disks, I can confirm that OMV with the 5805 work without any problem. Unfortunately I don't like the interface so I will stick with 6.1 for now and use the interna AHCI controller, will give it a shot when 6.2 becomes available. Cheers, Hemant
  3. @IG-88 Thanks for your reply, earlier i thought it was a DC7900 specific issue but it was not. I tried 5805 in another system with DMS 6.1 and it worked but not on the DC7900 I Tried 5805 on the DC 7900 with DSM 5.2 which works fine. What I don undertand is that if the driver works with DSM 6.1 not on the DC7900 which again works with DMS 5.2. I noticed this line in the Dmesg: [ 4.955203] scsi6 : aacraid [ 5.260571] BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffff8803126909fc Tried playing with portmap without any luck. Sorry for the earlier double posts. Cheers, Hemant
  4. Hi All, I'm trying to add the extra.lzma file 4MB to the DSM 6.0.2 image (MBR version). Unfortunately there is not enough diskspace to host the file. I tried to expand the image with OSFmount but it fails. How can I add the extra.lzma to this image? I want to test this version. I need the extra drivers as it does not detect my Network card. Cheers, Hemant
  5. DSM 6.1.4 timezone

    Hi Freind sorry for the late reply, I updated tyo version 6.1.5 and the problem dissapeared, so something to do with Synology I guess. I did not change any setting on AD nor on the Bios, guess a bug-fix with 6.1.5. Cheers, Hemant
  6. Hi Guys, Seem to have an odd problem with my system. I Have a Adaptec 5805 which should be included in the drivers for 6.1 when i do the lspci is see the driver is active but it does not see my attached disks. Strange thing is that when I do exactly the same using DMS 5.2 i can install DSM on the same machine by switching between 6.1 and 5.2 USB boot device. There seems to be a problem with the driver in loader 6.1 which does not show my devices attached, while same system withhout changing any settings works perfect with DMS 5.2. Is anyone able to update or change the driver so I can upgrade to 6.5 and use all available disk slots? I'm currently limted to the Board which only has 5 disks. Thanks Hemant
  7. DSM 6.1.4 timezone

    Hi, AD server time is correct, also all clients show correct time, only problem is with DSM server which is 2 hours ahead while timezone is same, it updates correctly with AD but shows wrong time. I noticed that TVheadend has correct time while it is on the DSM server it shows the same time as my AD server. Hemant
  8. DSM 6.1.4 timezone

    Hi Guys, I'm running DSM 6.1.4 on a HP DC7900, today I noticed that my time is not correct in my DSM. I use NTP to sync with my AD server problem is that the DSM quickly sync but then changes back to being 1 hour ahead of my timezone GMT+2. I put Amstersdam GMT+1 as timezone and enabled NTP to my AD. cannot sems to figure out why it changes back every time. Even when doing this manually it changes the time to GMT +2 instead of GMT+1, anyone knows why or has a fix? Cheers, Hemant
  9. @IG-88 Yes other PC is running exact same DSM 6.1 version as the DC7900 so driver should work, only problem is that Jbod works on the other systems while not on the DC7900. Cheers, Hemant
  10. @IG-88 I'm currently running DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 1 on DS3615xs. Will cache still be available if SSD attached to the Adaptec. I can try as there is no data on it. the data sits on the onboard controller which has 5 disks attached and want to expand #disks and add SSD cache by adding an addtional controller i have two lying around the Promise (which does not work for obvious reasons and the Adaptec. Funny thing though, when i put the adaptec on a different PC configured as JBOD, I can see the disks and SSD and configure both, clould it also be due to bios limitations from the DC7900 i'm running compared to the Asus dual Xeon board which works fine? Hemant.
  11. Hi IG-88, Correct i noticed the driver: Kernel driver in use: aacraid I created Jbod but nothing visible, does Jbod not work and should i be creating raid0 for each disk? I have attached SSD on the raid controller and wanted to use it for cache! Cheers, Hemant
  12. thanks IG-88 sorry did not spot it. What about the Adaptec 5805 raid, is it supported as i'm unable to see any devices attached to this controller. Cheers, Hemant
  13. Hi Friends, I have a promise fasttrak TX4310, unformtunately it does not wokr I have created JBOD and raid0 but disks are not visible in the webif. Any indeas if the driver is there? It worked with 5.x release where i used the controller to add 4 disks on top of the 5 connections i have on the mainboard. Cheers, Hemant
  14. Hi Deloza, I had the same issue initially because the nic was not getting an IP, what you can try is directly plugin a laptop to the back of the diskstation and then do the find.mysyno or use the desktop version. Cheers
  15. I managed to get both Sundtek and TVH 4.2.4 working, so i'm good to go now with this new firmware. Cheers, Hemant
