    Introduce yourself here

    Hello From Platte City, MO! Built my first (and only) server in 2013 using 4.2 Learning a lot from the many post here
  3. I was told that I formed my last post badly. I will attempt to ask the question another way. I have a 4.2 server I am attempting to upgrade to at least v5. I currently keep the Compact Flash drive in the computer because I am thinking it is needed to boot the system. Is this true? Does the OS reside on each of the drives in my array? If I created a new compact flash drive with the new OS, will it see the older volume? The array is managed by the controller not the OS.

  5. Polanskiman, apologies for the hard to read post. Just attempting to put everything in there that I can If it was not clear, I am attempting to get off of 4.2 But keep running into the issues outlined in my post. honestly at this point I would happy just to have an upgrade of any kind just to go thru to completion.
  6. I first want to apologize if this issue has been addressed. I searched this forum but did not find anything on this subject. If there is a thread on this, please kindly post it I will start my research there. I am using a home built unit (custom PC with RAID 5, 4 disk) with the software noted below. It was installed using an USB drive. Does the USB drive need to be installed at all times? Or is it just needed for the install? I have never removed it to test. When attempting to upgrade (even within the same version, like from 4.2-3211 to 4.2-3827) it fails either in error or in not completing process. I have read in some places to disable HTTPS and that has been done. Process 1: Upgrading from within the system by letting it DL the next upgrade, in this case 4.2-3827. Start Download the recommended version Get the DSM DL complete notice Click on Upgrade Now Confirm with Yes on the next screen "Preparing for system update" window pops up Then get the Unknown Error Occurs (Error 21). End Process 2: Upgrading from a manually downloaded 4.2-3827 on external drive Start File downloaded to a folder that is shared with open access to all file read\write for everyone Select 3827 Confirm on the next window Transferring data to the server. Please wait... After 2 mins, "Unknown Error occurs (Error No:21) End Process 3: Upgrading from a manually downloaded 4.2-3827 on a folder from the NAS Start: File downloaded to a folder that is on NAS that has open access to all \\DISKSTATION\music Select 3827 Confirm on the next window Transferring data to the server. Please wait... Clears logs (Notice log window clearing out) Preparing for system update... And we wait...................................................... This is where it will sit for as long as I would let it. Hit back button to end process and restart server. End This time I just notice that the system is asking for JAVA. Not sure if this is going to help or hurt but I installed it successfully. Process 4: Server Restarted and confirmed all services has stopped. Upgrading from within the system by letting it DL the next upgrade, in this case 4.2-3827. Start Download the recommended version (Taking much longer to DL, this is after going thru system and turning down all services. Java v6.37 installed) Get the DSM DL complete notice Click on Upgrade Now Confirm with Yes on the next screen "Preparing for system update" window pops up Update Progress.... YAH!!!!! (Got all the way up to 3%) Short lived... DSM Update: Unknown error occours (Error 21). End Any assistance you can provide would be grateful Model Name: DSM3612xs Current DSM Version: DSM 4.2-3211 DSM date: 2013/04/16

    Teaming Network ports

    Hello all, The good news, I have successfully installed this on an AMD dual core CPU w/ 8gig ram. And its running on a 4 gig Compact Flash. The no really bad but not good news either. While I have been getting things setup properly, I have run into a few issues I would like to get the collective groups idea on: * Is it possible to do teaming on network cards with two ports. I see that they are both active, but how do I determine that they are teaming or not. The card does not present a pre boot option. * I think I understand that I cannot get QuickConnect to work because these are unsanctioned machines that cannot register with Synology. But are there other options to host a Could service on the OS? Otherwise, it seems to be pretty good sofar. I have not had it running that long but so far so good. But would like to get those two items figured out. Thanks in advance for any help.
