  1. Thank you for your input. Yes, I know it has 6x onboard SATA ports, however I want to be able to upgrade with more HDD's in the future when needed. Sorry for the confusion. Should have mentioned that.
  2. Hi all, It's been quite a while since I posted something here. Anyways, since my current XPEnology NAS is a bit outdated (and moreover lacking HDD storage space), I decided to do a completely new build. It's mainly used for storage and downloading (unpacking needs to be quick) movies, series, games, etc. I will also store all of our pictures (from phones, laptop, etc.) from now on on the NAS, because I will have more space available then before. Here is what I am planning to build: - Motherboard: ASRock H370M Pro4 - CPU: Intel Pentium G5600 - RAM: G.Skill Aegis F4-2400C15D-16GIS (16GB is probably overkill?) - PSU: Seasonic Focus Gold 550W - Case: Fractal Design Node 804 - CPU cooling: Corsair Hydro H55 - RAID controller (IT-mode): Fujitsu 9211-8i D2607 LSI SAS2008 - Network: onboard or an older Intel 4-port PCIe adapter - Storage: 4x Hitachi HGST Ultrastar He6 6TB in SHR mode My current setup consists out 4x 4TB HDD's in RAID 10. So I will ditch RAID 10 in favour for SHR mode. Way more space and still fast enough for most things, I guess (no experience with SHR though). Will the above work with DSM 6.x without issues? Any other recommendations, ideas, whatsoever? Thank you in advance!
  3. Thank you both chege and IG-88 for explaining... Guess I should have checked the forums a bit better before upgrading. Anyways, will give it a new go tomorrow (after I first disabled bond, lowered MTU and disabled Jumbo Frames). Hopefully it will succeed this time... And if I understood correctly; I can redo the settings to 9000 MTU, Jumbo Frames and bond, after I upgraded to DSM 6.0, right? ...or will it still cause issues? Thanks again!
  4. Okay... Some positive news. Changing the VERSION to an older DSM-version works. I could boot to the installation procedure, selected my old DSM_DS3615xs_5967.pat file. Then it started installing and I crossed my fingers... After a minute or 2 it rebooted. I checked the screen locally and it was updating the files. Now I can enter DSM GUI again and so far everything is still working! I went to network and checked the settings there. And it says: Bond 1 - Connected LAN 1 - 1000 Mbps, Full duplex, MTU 9000 LAN 2 -- (this one is still disconnected) LAN 3 -- (this one is still disconnected) Can it really be the MTU and/or Jumbo Frame setting which caused all the problems with DSM 6.0 GUI? I find that really weird...? It should still connect right (like Sabnzbd, Couchpotato and Sonarr do)? Or am I mistaken here...? Please explain if you can... I would appreciated it. Also if I would disable the BOND, 9000 MTU and Jumbo Frames... Will DSM 6.0 with Jun's loader work? ...or will it still not work? Thanks in advance!
  5. [spoiler=]Well I am now running the Ubuntu Live USB and I followed the commands as described on your other page. - sudo -i - apt-get install mdadm lvm2 I don't want to mount the data partition, so I skipped that step... - mdadm -Ee0.swap /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 - mdadm -AU byteorder /dev/md0 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 But I cannot seem to find my Xpenology system files, for example: /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf And/or: /etc.defaults/VERSION Am I overlooking something here... Where should I look? I am sorry if I am asking stupid questions, but I hardly have any experience with Ubuntu in general. Never mind, I found it... Sorry I am stupid. Update: well I skimmed through the synoinfo.conf file, but there was no bondX in here, only ethX and all of them were at 1500. So that wasn't the problem. Therefor I will try to downgrade now back to 5.2. Hopefully it will work...
  6. Well no dice... What I did now: - created a completely fresh USB stick with Jun's loader 6.0.1 - followed all configuration steps to the letter - switched the driver string in grub.cfg - changed VID, PID and MAC - only used one MC - disabled the trunk/bond on switch - disconnected both ports on Intel PCIe card - selected 'Force Install'-option and installed the .PAT-file - auto rebooted normally and selected option 1 from loader Waited for 10 minutes. The only thing accesable are (once again) Sabnzbd, Sonarr and Couchpotato... ...DSM GUI is not reachable at all. So I am back to square one again. Sigh. I am gonna try to downgrade now. I am completely done with DSM 6.0 and wished I never did this update... //edit Before trying to downgrade, I will run the Ubuntu Live USB stick and check the files as well.
  7. Thank you for your answer... ...I might try this, if everything else fails.
  8. Ah thank you for explaining that... But if I can access the system files, I will be able to change /etc.defaults/VERSION to something like: Right? If that's true, I can even try to downgrade if I fail DSM 6 again this evening...
  9. Thank you Polanskiman. I will certainly try several other things, before really wiping it. Hopefully there is some way to make it work. When I get back home, I will: 1. remove the network cables from the Intel PCIe card, so I will only have the onboard Intel one. 2. check the MTU on my switch 3. check the LACP settings on the switch (maybe that's the problem) though it still weird that other applications actually work. I will modify the grub.cfg once again and run "Force Install" again. And select the .pat file once again. Hopefully it will work now... Never had this kind of problem before, but then again, it's a new loader ofcourse. Something I am not experienced with. Thank you for explaining. I will look into it, though it's a final resort ofcourse. Yeah true, but really trying to figure out what's causing the problems... Would have been so much easier if you had a command prompt (locally) upon boot imho. Will report back later.
  10. Because if it's wrong and/or incorrect, I can easily correct it. It doesn't matter if it's commented out or not in this case, as it shouldn't do any harm. It's for me easier to revert back in case it's wrong. Otherwise I have to search the forum again and copy and paste the line once again. Reconfigure everything....! I will lose all my series, movies, download settings for Sabnzbd, Couchpotato and Sonarr. Not to mention that I will get recommended movies with Couchpotato I already have seen... Furthermore I will lose my database which is being used by 2 Kodi/Jarvis machines. So, that's not really a solution imho. I followed the tutorial step by step. After a reboot and waiting 10 minutes, I can connect to Couchpotato, Sonarr and Sabnzbd, but I cannot connect to DSM GUI. So there seems to be a bug in the loader as I did everything exactly correct according to the manual. I waited several months (6+) before doing this update, thought it would be pretty safe to use by now, but apparently not. I really find it weird, that it could be the NIC, as I can connect to C, S and S (as mentioned above and in my other posts), if it was any of the NIC's, these wouldn't be accessable either imho. Anyways, I will try it once again this evening, as you mentioned, maybe it's the NIC (something I doubt), but I rather be wrong on my side. If it would fix things. Ohterwise I will have no other choice than to purchase a real Synology and say goodbye to Xpenology (= win for Synology obviously), because redoing my complete setup of everything (including my applications and such) is not a real option here. Will report back later this evening when I get back home. I will also test the beta loaders from Jun as well. Maybe those will work instead for me... It's sucks that I cannot downgrade back either to 5.2, because when I use my 5.2 USB stick, I am getting a prompt, but none of my useraccounts in combination with my passwords work. //edit #1 You mentioned and I quote "Personally I would wipe the system partition..." how would I do that if I cannot even access the machine by SSH or locally with monitor and keyboard? Or is that what you meant with the "Reinstall"-option from Jun's loader? Anyways, it's something I rather not do.... //edit #2 Probably silly, but DSM 5.2 USB stick was always booting in BIOS Legacy mode, the new 6.0 USB stick is running in UEFI (as it said the tutorial you can select either one). This wouldn't be the issue right? ME = Headache!
  11. Thanks for answering, but I already found that "solution" yesterday as well here: https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/7507-tutorial-installmigrate-dsm-52-to-602-juns-loader/?do=findComment&comment=65939 So I changed it to the following: # initrd $img/ramdisk.lzma $img/$extra_initrd initrd $img/$extra_initrd $img/ramdisk.lzma And I reinstalled again (throught Force Install and select the .pat file once again). ...but no luck. But I doubt this is the issue, because (like I have mentioned a few times) after 10 minutes on a normal boot, I can access Sabnzbd, Couchpotato en Sonarr. So I really doubt it's any of the LAN ports in general... Otherwise it wouldn't be able to connect to those applications, let alone download stuff... Right? Anyways, I will retry the above once again this evening when I get back home (for the 3rd time), but I doubt this will solve it. //edit In DSM the 3 LAN ports were bonded (LACP). I don't know if this is important. Anyways, I re-read your post and I will populate only LAN port this evening, as you mentioned and redo everything once again... ...unless you have any other ideas....?
  12. Hi Polanskiman. First thanks for answering, but I replied (since the forum was working again) a minute before your answer. Please check when you have the time. It's not an onboard Realtek NIC...
  13. So the forum is fixed again? Apparently also running on Jun's loader? Well changing "1" to "3" for "set netif_num" didn't work. I also checked the motherboard, which is an AsRock Z87E-ITX. According to the website of AsRock the onboard LAN is an Intel NIC (Giga PHY Intel® I217V). But to be honest; I doubt it's any of the NIC's (correct me when I am wrong though), because after booting up (normally with 1st option in Jun's loader) and wait for about 10 minutes. I can connect to my applications like Sabnzbd, Couchpotato and Sonarr. They also work normally, as they download stuff... ...what I cannot access is my Synology partitions/shares through Windows (or other) and I cannot access the DSM GUI. I also tried downgrading, by using "Force Install" and select a 5.2-pat file. However this obviously doesn't work. Furtermore; I used my original DSM 5.2 USB stick (with XPEnoboot). Though I get a command line on the NAS, it doesn't accept my user/password and I tried everything. I am 100% sure the password is correct, but no luck. So I am running out of idea... I really wished I never did this update. So any other ideas? Also, as mentioned above, I also tried changing the serial, but that didn't help.
  14. Thanks for replying IG-88. I am already using my real MAC addresses for all ports. However the only thing I didn't change, was "netif_num=1", I still had it on "1". This wasn't mentioned in the tutorial though, so dunno if it's important. Will change it now to "3" and retry. Okay so no changes in SSH then whatsoever... Since I cannot enter the DSM GUI. Yeah, tried a few downgrades, didn't work... Sigh. So I am really hoping I can get 6.0 to work instead. The weird thing is, I just did another Force Install and loaded the .pat file. Then on the normal boot (1st option in bootloader). It takes about 8 - 10 minutes and then I can access Sabnzbd, Couchpotato and Sonarr. The only thing I cannot access is DSM GUI itself... Really strange. Also Sabnzbd is downloading. So that also works... I also tried using a different serial (here: https://xpenology.github.io/serial_gene ... r_new.html), but also no luck. I will now edit the "netif_num" to 3. Maybe that will help....
  15. Followed the tutorial perfectly. And both firmware and DSM are both updated to 6.0.2-8451 (I can check this if I reboot in Force Install mode again). The weird thing is, is when I wait long enough 5 - 10 minutes. I can connect suddenly to Sabnzbd, Couchpotato and Sonarr... However I cannot seem to connect to DSM 6 at all! No matter what I try... I have 3 LAN ports, 1 of them is an onboard Realtek port and the other 2 ports are from an Intel PCIe card. ...don't know if this matters. My Xpenology is Intel based btw. Also I can ping my Xpenology, but cannot connect to it through SSH or whatever. The screen only shows "Booting the kernel" but that seems to be normal, as far as I understand. Any idea or solution...? If not, can I revert back to 5.2 with my backup USB stick? TY //edit I also tried find.synology.com and synology assistant, but neither of them can find my NAS. The NAS can be found when it's in Forced Install mode. //edit2 Well I wished I never ever touched this update... I cannot even go back, cannot login through SSH and/or local... Seems I completely screwed. Nice. Hopefully someone has a solution to get DSM working again 6.0 or 5.2.... Thanks in advance.
