  1. Seems like Synology has included a few vfs hooks in their version of Samba. I believe it is one of them that is causing problems: synosmb_vfs_acl_init synosmb_vfs_indexing_init synosmb_vfs_stream_init synosmb_vfs_xattr_init synosmb_vfs_xferlog_init Troubleshooting their samba modules is a little over my head right now. I've compiled smbd from source (without the modules) and it seems to work fine with the zfs mounts that I have. No indication of any problems from the GUI and shares work how I expect. I have never really gotten into Windows ACLs on Synology so I'm not sure if they are behaving properly.
  2. By the way, here is the init script that I use to automatically load the kernel modules. I borrowed it and modified it from somewhere else: I've got ipkg / bootstrap setup so I put the init script in /opt/etc/init.d/S10modules #!/bin/sh # Original script has been written by Davy Leggieri (hey another French guy # Modified by Charles-Henri Hallard on April 2012 to fit with my configuration # # there is start stop var because at stop modules usbserial should be unloaded last MODULES_DIR="/opt/lib/modules/3.2.40" MODULES_START="spl.ko splat.ko zavl.ko znvpair.ko zunicode.ko zcommon.ko zfs.ko zpios.ko" MODULES_STOP="zpios.ko zfs.ko zcommon.ko zunicode.ko znvpair.ko zavl.ko splat.ko spl.ko" start_modules(){ echo "--- Load modules ---" for i in $MODULES_START; do echo "Loading $i" insmod $MODULES_DIR/$i done } stop_modules(){ echo "--- Unload modules ---" for i in $MODULES_STOP; do echo "Unloading $i" rmmod $MODULES_DIR/$i done } case "$1" in start) start_modules ;; stop) stop_modules ;; *) echo "usage: $0 { start | stop }" >&2 exit 1 ;;
  3. Thanks for the mirror. I am still trying to figure out Samba. NFS works fine, but I am still having problems with the Synology compiled Samba. Not sure what is going on. As mentioned before, the Samba package that is available via ipkg is working great.
  4. I currently have it running as an ESXi VM on top of a Gen 8 HP Microserver. The Microserver has been modified to have a Intel Xeon CPU E3-1230 V2 3.30GHz. I've given the VM 4GB of RAM and 4 CPU Cores. I have FreeNAS running alongside this on the same hardware with the same specs (4GB RAM 4 CPU cores) and performance has been really good with it. I'll have to see how the SynologyZFS setup compares. I don't use dedupe in my home lab as it requires more resources, but I do use compression. I've used dedupe out in the workforce but it has been on multi controller SANS with lots of RAM.
  5. Warning: This seems to be working well, but is in it's very early stages. Play with it at your own risk. So I have gotten zfs compiled and working on nanoboot with DSM 5.0-4493. It wasn't pretty getting it going, but it seems like the functionality that I want is there. Compression, snapshots, clones, replication, etc. I haven't had too much time to mess with it but performance seems pretty good. I am a Linux Admin, but I mostly work with Redhat / CentOS and this is actually the first time that I have cross-compiled. In that sense I am a newb so there are probably much better ways to do what I have done. If so, please let me know. I've compiled from source in the past, but this was a little different. I'm so used to YUM or other package managers . . . Anyway, there is one small hurdle that I am trying to overcome. It seems that the Synology implementation of Samba does something a little tricky that the Kernel / ZFS don't like. Perhaps it is related to ACLs. When I initiate a copy from Windows, Windows believes there is no room on the volume and in dmesg I see: [ 1534.802643] write_begin() or write_end() is not implemented When I use the samba2 package from ipkg the Samba shares work just fine. If you want to give it a shot, here are the files and instructions. As I haven't tested much, I don't recommend using in production: Unpack and load the kernel modules (change the commands to where you have unpacked the modules): insmod /opt/lib/modules/3.2.40/spl.ko insmod /opt/lib/modules/3.2.40/splat.ko insmod /opt/lib/modules/3.2.40/zavl.ko insmod /opt/lib/modules/3.2.40/znvpair.ko insmod /opt/lib/modules/3.2.40/zunicode.ko insmod /opt/lib/modules/3.2.40/zcommon.ko insmod /opt/lib/modules/3.2.40/zfs.ko insmod /opt/lib/modules/3.2.40/zpios.ko Library files need to go into /lib64/ DSM5> tar -zxf libuuid.so.1.3.0.tar.gz DSM5> chmod 755 libuuid.so.1.3.0; cp libuuid.so.1.3.0 /lib64/; rm /lib64/libuuid.so; rm /lib64/libuuid.so.1; ln -s /lib64/libuuid.so.1.3.0 /lib64/libuuid. so; ln -s /lib64/libuuid.so.1.3.0 /lib64/libuuid.so.1 DSM5> tar -zxf libz.so.1.2.8-x64.tar.gz DSM5> cp -p libz.so.1.2.8 /lib64/; ln -s /lib64/libz.so.1.2.8 /lib64/libz.so; ln -s /lib64/libz.so.1.2.8 /lib64/libz.so.1 Install the deb packages with dpkg. I was lazy and sick of messing around with things so I just did a: DSM5> dpkg -i --force-all *.deb Since I didn't have udevadm I had to create the zfs device pointer manually: DSM5> cat /sys/class/misc/zfs/dev 10:57 DSM5> mknod /dev/zfs c 10 57 At this point zfs and zpool commands should work. zpool create tank /dev/sdXX <---- change this to the device you want to use. Create dataset zfs create tank/data Turn on compression: zfs set compression=on tank/data These should mount automatically, but you can change the mount type to "legacy" and mount them with fstab or manually. zfs set mountpoint=legacy tank/data mount -t zfs -o usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0,synoacl,defaults,atime,dev,exec,rw,suid,xattr,nomand,zfsutil,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0,synoacl tank/data /volume1/zfs/data Take a snapshot zfs snapshot tank/data@snapshot0821 I'm out of time for now. Will post more later. Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_7bVXd64Md1Q054Qy1FWVd4bEU/edit?usp=sharing
  6. I've been testing gnoBoot for some time now and want to say thanks for all your effort. I've had a lot of success thus far. One thing that I am unsure of is what is the proper way to upgrade to the newest alpha? Do I just copy the latest zImage and overwrite the old one? Is there anything more to it than that? Sorry if this is a "newb" question, but an answer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Quantum, you are my hero man. THANKS!
  8. I am having this same issue. Glad I am not alone, but I wish I had a solution!
  9. Yeah, I can't seem to get ds audio working either. I can use it from the web interface, but when I try to connect my Android device I get "Network is not available now". When I try to connect with my iPad it says something about authentication. Also, I haven't been able to get Plex working yet.
  10. I have three vms (2 x DSM 4.2 & 1 x DSM 4.3). When I use vSphere to shutdown or restart any of them I never get errors when they come back online.
  11. can you tell which logs should contain VMware tools entries and is there any tools specific logging which can be enabled? I don't have the time to research/debug what it is I've done to get my version working (I do remember spending a reasonable amount of time on it though). I've probably forgotten something somewhere. It may be a few days (weekend?) before I can get back to you on this. After following the guide for wmware tools I could not get shutdown and reboot to work from the vSphere client. The problem was that the "shutdown" binary did not function on my Synology install. I decided to just create my own "shutdown" script and replace the binary that was in /sbin/ with it: mv /sbin/shutdown /sbin/shutdown_old vi /sbin/shutdown paste the following code: #!/bin/sh for var in "$@" do if [ "$var" = "-r" ] then reboot exit 0 fi done poweroff Then change the permissions so teh script is executable. chmod 755 /sbin/shutdown This worked for me!
  12. I am wondering if anyone here can help me out. I would like to install vm-ware tools on my Synology, but not sure where to go. I have seen open-vm-tools mentioned, but not sure what to do. I have ipkg up and running and have successfully installed nails. Can some one give me a hand?
  13. I am having a hard time getting NFS working on my ESXi build. When I check to see if NFS is listening on port 2049 I get: DiskStation> netstat -tulpn | grep 2049 DiskStation> I try to start NFS manually: DiskStation> /usr/syno/etc/rc.d/S83nfsd.sh start Starting NFS server... :: Loading module rpcsec_gss_krb5 ... [FAILED] :: Loading module exportfs ... [ OK ] :: Loading module nfsd ... [FAILED] mount: mounting none on /proc/fs/nfsd failed: No such device I try to load the FAILED modules manually: DiskStation> insmod /lib/modules/nfsd.ko insmod: can't insert '/lib/modules/nfsd.ko': unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter DiskStation> insmod /lib/modules/rpcsec_gss_krb5.ko insmod: can't insert '/lib/modules/rpcsec_gss_krb5.ko': unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter Not sure where to go from here . . . Anyone that can help?
  14. Is everyone running this build in ESXi that is having this problem or is it just me? Trying to see if I can tie it down to a problem with my ESXi setup or not.
