    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    You are using the wrong serial number. Don;t use the HP serialnumber but generate a synology one. I can't find the link but it has been posted many times. You can find it!

    Synology Community Package Sources

    for some lucky reason I just found this site with very nice, well written tutorials! https://drfrankenstein.co.uk/

    Synology Community Package Sources

    I tried using Docker but I just don't understand it. I have SabNZBd running but cannot access the filesystem of the nas. It is all very confusing to me.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    First you need to enable root login. I followed these steps: https://forum.synology.com/enu/viewtopi ... 75#p424956 (Basicly, download Putty, put in the ip of the nas, login with the username and password, follow the commands and you are done.) For the enabling of SHR I used my favorite program WinSCP. I used the root login I made in the previous step and logged in (create a new profile login with the SCP protocol), find the file /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf and edit it. just like the steps here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20216&start=440#p74525 Sorry, I did not use that as my machine is always on.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    FYI: I just finished installing DSM 6.1-15047 Update 2 on my Baremetal Microserver Gen8 with a Xeon E3-1220v2 and 10gb ram (2+8). I used viewtopic.php?p=74492#p74492 However, I did not download a seperate PAT file, I just used the default setup. I made a small edit to enable root login in SSH and made it possible to create SHR diskgroups. Small note on the enable SHR trick. I had to reboot to enable the creation of SHR diskgroups. When I was done, I installed the latest update that was available. Now I just have to see if this keeps running stable in the coming week.
  6. If the installation of linux is to difficult, you can also install Windows Server (2012R2 or 2016) and enable the Hyper-V Role. Install Plex on the windows server. In my expercience the windows desktop clients perform poorly when virtualised. (even with the vmware tools or other integration tools installed) Link the disks you want to store your movies on, to a new VM and install XPEnology in this VM. In XPEnology, create a share and let Plex use these files. This way you have the most performance for plex transcoding and if you want, you can run DSM baremetal if the system doesn't work like you want it to. (note, you cant passthrough usb sticks to a hyper-v vm.)

    DSM 6 Boot Image for Hyper-V

    I want to use Hyper-V server 2016 when it becomes available so I am curious about this as well. However, in the very long 'working dsm6'-post I saw people talking about this working with Hyper-V. So there should be some things available.

    upgrading N54l to Gen 8 question

    I also did this succesfully. And when I was ready I also upgraded the cpu to a Xeon. I don't remember which type. Be carefull to remember the drive numbers and put them back in the same order
  9. What is medium to high traffic? 1000 concurrent sessions may seem medium for some and low for others.

    Antivirus?

    I see your point, an anti-virus is not necessary on a NAS system to protect the NAS itself. However, if you have a functional virusscanner on your nas that is able to catch and dis-infect or delete malware it is a good way to protect your computer because you might connect to your nas before your anti-virus had a chance to update itself and you might still infect yourself. That being said, I only use the free anti virus. And I agree, it's mostly crap and false positives.

    Windows 10 - unable to access shares

    I was having the same problems on my windows 10 pc. I will try this tonight and check back to confirm if this worked for me. I made a workaround by creating a new batchfile which deleted the excisting mapping, creating a new one and starting Explorer.exe with arguments to open the drivemapping. Ok, so it turns out that I had a different problem. But that is solved as well. I needed to put in my username and password everytime I wanted to connect to share after a reboot. Turns out that if i use the hostname as the domain "Servername"\"Username" it works better then just "username". I create a mapping and select that I want to use a different username to connect to the mapping.

    Can't get in my router anymore?!

    I agree with both posts If you cant reach the NAS without the router you could try giving your pc or laptop a static ip in the same range as the nas (different IP, same subnetmask and gateway, leave DNS empty) and connect to the nas using the ip adres (not the name). change the ip settings to DHCP and see if that helps when connecting it back to the network.

    Abnormality detected on nas, after update

    You have to revert back to 5.2 because DSM 6 does not work yet. In case you have not noticed, XPEnology is not opensource but a hacked OS copied from Synology. It is not meant to be used in 'production', meaning that you should not store your important files on XPEnology because it is very experimental and could suddenly stop working. I noticed that this is your first post on the forum, I understand you are scared you are losing all your stuff and post quickly because you need help. But you are not the only one who upgraded to DSM 6. Hopefully you can downgrade. There are guides on the forum. (sorry be an asshole, XPEnology might have become to popular and people expect this stuff to work. It is great software, but dont rely on it.) Edit: Brantje beat me to it
