      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. LSI Cachecade

    try it and see. I am guessing it should work... Drivers for the Card should be there, xpenology should see one large drive. which you can then setup and a single volume. Only issue I can think of is if the volume is too large eg greter than 16tb problem for ext4.... the fix would be to make multiple less than 16tb volumes. Let me know if you get stuck
  2. Xpenology & Intel Dual Port Server Adapter

    if it's an intel chipset it will just work. if it's a broadcom chipset you will need to add the firmware files (drivers) in the correct places for it to work.
  3. xpenology 5.1 50220.2 Sas Controller

    Gday philsrb. Not looked at 5.1 as yet myself. Have you done a search thru the file system for similar lines? eg are they moved / hiding elsewhere? find /* | grep "internalportcfg" etc?
  4. Brocade 1020 Card 10gigE Support

    Read this thread http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3298 .
  5. 10GbE card and switch recommendation?

    Your lacking some info. Your Games n Stuff PC......what OS is that running? It's easy enough to get decent speeds from Xpenology's networking. If your OS for games n stuff is Linux / BSD / Unix etc then bonding multiple cards can be the cheapest way to go (no switch needed if direct connecting) else cheapest is to grab some old 10Gb Fibre cards, and a length of fibre cable should see you getting an easy 9.90 Gbits/sec Way more than a bunch of HDD's raided together will give you. Emulex 10GbE Virtual Fabric Adapters work perfectly, and can be found cheap on eBay... if your lucky they will come with transceivers. Then all you need is a cheap LC to LC 50/125 cable to connect them together if you need more speed, buy dual port cards and then bond both of those ports together quick guide on how to bond gigabit cards here http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2476 .
  6. Think from memory I gave more than 26 a whirl once. Had to change the maxdisks setting but it seemed fine. MDADM has a limit on the max drives in a mirror set.... so that might be the limitation... eg /dev/md0 and /dev/md1 (OS and swap space) are mirror sets which go across all drives...... .
  7. 1 Volume but /dev/md3 ? Why?

    MD0 = Mirror raid where the OS resides MD1 = Mirror Raid where the swap files lives MD2 = Raid 5 Array where your volume lives No somethings gone amiss there I would guess, and as such the reason you have such slow access times. I would wipe the drives completely and start again..... were these drives previously used in a mdadm array in another OS??
  8. Disk to Slot Mapping

    t's a known problem sadly. Drives jump around all over the place.... but dont actually cause any issues.......as mdadm uses the uuid of the drives to assemle the arrays....but yes makes identifiying drives a little messy .
  9. Use Xpenology as a basic router

    maybe you need better lan cards? ie ones with tcpip offload etc to relieve the cpu load?
  10. Glad it helped. Was a fair while ago I did it myself......so yeah... just have to to find the right files and watch dmesg as to where to place them and it all works. .
  11. Broadcom cards need you to add the firmware into the correct folder. Tho, you might have to temporarily add another lan card into the system to get xpenology installed. EG grab a cheap intel e1000 card etc to get you going.... then you can download and fiddle with the correct firmware file and as to where it need to be placed. dmesg outputs can help you find where the driver is expecting to find the firmware files. For a 10/100 Broadcom card I have my notes ============= Download these files (will put them up somewhere for you) http://stanzabike.net/images/xpenology/versions/Nanoboot/bnx2-mips-09-6.2.1a.fw http://stanzabike.net/images/xpenology/versions/Nanoboot/bnx2-rv2p-09-6.0.17.fw copy them both to /usr/syno/hotplug/firmware /usr/syno/hotplug/firmware/bnx2 reboot should get it working for you......
  12. I would disable as much ports (usb and onboard SATA) as you can. then work from there 1st set the SATA / SAS / msata ports....eg work out how many and convert to hex 2nd then E-SATA if you need it. 3rd then usb ports if there is just one esata port use 0x1xxxxx, that is 1 x esata port and the xxxxx are the hex code you used for the SATA etc. it's confusing and complicated fudge.... but once you get it right will work fine. also I would suggest not hiding the usb stick (eg entering PID and VID in menu_nano.lst file) until you have sorted the above out. as then you can see in storage manager if the usb port is getting detected as a SATA port with you hex codes. once sorted, then go back and hide the usb stick
  13. XPEnology w/ 24 drives and areca card possible?

  14. Poor file copy performance

    yes speed of SMB copy from one Xpenology to another is pretty bad. I work around it by using the backup and replication app backup from one box to another, then just move the folders / files you will get full speed of the network this way. eg SMB copy = approx 50-60mb/s backup (which is really rsync) = 115-120mb/s .
  15. The battle for hdd hibernation

    Unless you have pretty much nothing running or installed on the system HDD spindown is a waste of time trying to chase. There are way way way to many things that wake the drives back up or prevent them from sleeping eg, just enabling SMB sharing, and setting the box to become the master browser..... then enables the guest account..... which in turn either keeps the drives awake, or wakes them backup from sleep every 20mins. .
