    Please fill in the survey! Thanks!

    Done... Good idea... you can clearly see there's a trend on bare metal DSM 5.x user opened to pay for a reasonable price to be "official" I'm totally agree with the concept of being a sort of "beta tester community" for Synology, this could make the difference facing their competitors! And about an official "paid" distribution of DSM ... why not... why even having 2 different versions: - A DSM Community edition (free of charge, without any direct support apart the community forum) offering only opensource packages and unlicensed pieces of software, just requires a free subscription on their community forum. - A DSM Experience edition (reasonable price, including a year of web support) that includes their many other Synology proprietary packages and the full DSM flavors... This can really make a plus for Synology... we can test new features, updates... propose new functionality ... The "personal" NAS market is growing a lot for the moment, and small businesses one too ... It could be a real strategic advantage for them! Cheers,
  2. Update 6 installed & confirmed working perfectly!!

    File system max size with 6TB WD REDs?

    I'm wondering the same too... would be great if we can!
  4. Can you give us more details? Which DSM version are you running? Which boot (Trantor's, Nanoboot, ...) Take a screenshot maybe?
  5. Fresh news about the issue coming from Synology forums: -------------------- The AnandTech article was updated a bit ago: "Synology has finished analyzing the exploit and confirmed which versions of DSM are vulnerable. The vulnerability in question was patched out of DSM in December of 2013, so only servers running significantly out of date versions of DSM appear to be affected. In summary, DSM 5.0 is not vulnerable. Meanwhile DSM 4.x versions that predate the vulnerability fix – anything prior to 4.3-3827, 4.2.3243, or 4.0-2259 – are vulnerable to SynoLocker. For those systems that are running out of date DSM versions and have not been infected, then updating to the latest DSM version should close the hole. As for systems that have been infected, Synology is still suggesting that owners shut down the device and contact the company for direct support." ------------------- So it seems the issues only affects non "updated" 4.x versions... good news

  7. Hi everyone, It seems there's a workaround for this problem for "legacy" Synology NAS 1. Shut down the NAS 2. Remove all the hard drives from the NAS 3. Find a spare hard drive that you will not mind wiping and insert it into the NAS 4. Use Synology Assistant to find the NAS and install the latest DSM onto this spare hard drive (use the latest DSM_file.pat from Synology) 5. When the DSM is fully running on this spare hard drive, shut down the NAS from the web management console. 6. Remove the spare drive and insert ALL your original drives. 7. Power up the NAS and wait patiently. If all goes well after about a minute you will hear a long beep and the NAS will come online. 8. Use Synology Assistant to find the NAS. It should now be visible with the status "migratable". 9. From Synology Assistant choose to install DSM to the NAS, use the same file you used in step 4 and specify the same name and IP address as it was before the crash. 10. Because the NAS is recognized as "migratable", the DSM installation will NOT wipe out the data on either the system partition nor the data partition. 11. After a few minutes, the installation will finish and you will be able to log in to your NAS with your original credentials. That means, in your case where you're running a non upgraded 4.3 version that you can definitively pass on Trantor's Beta 8 version, and then use local upgrades to go until the latest version (update 5 I think) ... just by flashing your USB startup key with latest you'll obtain the "migratable" state and being able to "reinstall" DSM without loosing data - Link to Trantor's (thanks again Trantor) DSM 4.3 Beta 8: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1361&p=17406#p17406 - Tutorial to use DSM internal update to go to the latest DSM update version (tested myself, it's working great, thanks Stanza): viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2999&hilit=3827 Hope this helps you waspsoton taking the control back on your NAS...
  8. Hi, Just updated successfully to DSM 4.3-3827 Update 4 running on Trantor's BETA 8 using your method! Many thanks for this tutorial! EDIT: Update 5 is working too!!!
