  1. Well, Got it working with SATA Controller passthrough on my HP Microserver GEN10PLUS. Now just wondering if I can safely upgrade to the new releases.
  2. Hi Everybody, been playing with this tutorial just to see if ProxMox is a way to go for Xpenology. Already have Xpenology running on Baremetal and ESXI so wanted to try this. Th back-up is brilliant and works really wel! Thank you for that! I am just wondering, what is the best way to attache storage to the VM? I already have a ZFS pool on the PROXMOX host and I could create a virtual disk, but not sure how the performance and reliability is. In ESXI I got some instability when I created a volume based on 4 vmdk. So I opted to just create a small VMDK and just mount
  3. Hi balrog, this is pretty much what I am trying to accomplish with my setup. But I think need the redundancy of RAID10 most dat ais pretty much backed up on other NAS drives (TRUENAS gets synced each sunday and the important files are synced with my one drive business in almost realtime). Thank you for the how to, I am still in the discovery mode and switching back and forth between PROXMOX and ESXI but in the meantime fiddling with Behive on Truenas and KVM on OMV. Probably will endup going back to ESXI, want to run ESXI from a attached SSD on the USB port and t
  4. Hi Balrog, Yep, I am going to install it tomorrow, the 64GB is already in. I will just run it with 4 HD drives a usb stick and a Seagate one touch attached to the USB3 port like they showed on the STH site. Th only expansion I would love is a Nvidia P400 for Transcoding but don't want to stress the PSU and since this server will run 24/7 I don't want it to draw more than 70W when not handling heavy workloads. My Gen8 Now draws 50W with 2 dimms 4 internal drives, internal usb and external USB drive. My ESXI ML310 Gen8 also the same with 32Gb and 4 10Tb drives some 720
  5. Hi UXORA-COM, I am still fiddling and trying things out. Am having some trouble starting the LXC but I probably did something wrong and have to go over it again. There are some parts of the tutorial that I might've interpreted wrongly. One question, does the boot loader have to be loaded from a URL? Also, I have to read-up on the virtio 9P driver etc.
  6. Hi balrog, How did you do this: "I have done a passthrough of the whole onboard SATA ahci-controller to the xpenology-vm." Does ESXI see the SATA controller when in AHCI modus? I thought the only way to pass the hardware on the microservers was by adding a raid card like the P222 ( That is the model that comes to mind but might be a different one) or by doing raw device mappings. Are you satisfied with the E-2236 Xeon, no issues so far?
  7. Hi UXORA-COM, This is exactly what I need! I have a working Xpenology (which I am using for years now) on Baremetal (Gen8 16Gb Xeon e3-1230v2) and several test installs on ESXI as a VM pulling content from NFS shares on the other Xpenology and OMV NAS. In the past I have tried virtualising Xpenology on ESXI with VMDK disks but that was not a succes, after a While disks got state unreadable etc. so I stoped with that approach. Also I the good thing about virtualisation is if you want to do a upgrade you can snapshot etc. But wil a lot of data on the system that is not an optio
  8. Hi Balrog, I just bought the exact same setup to replace my bare metal setup on a HPE Microserver Gen8 with a e3-1230v2 and 16GB ram. For the Gen10+ I have installed 64Gb ECC Micron dimes DDR4-3200 EUDIMM (MTA18asf4g72az-3g2b1). How is your setup handling? I have not installed the new Xeon yet (just got it today) is now running with the new memory and the Pentium G54XX that came with it. So before I install the CPU I would love to hear what your experience is. Also, did you pass the HD's through to the xpenology? In the past I had ran some test with VMDK's but got issues with several set
  9. Great Topic!! Should be pinned and there should be one for 6.X also. I also have updated my 5.X install to the latest update on a HP Gen8 without problems. No reboot yet.
  10. Ok since nobody answered i went ahead and did the upgrade. Works fine!
  11. Hi Everybody, I know for sure this question has been asked before but have been searching through the forum and cant find it so I am just going to ask it again. I have been running DSM 5.2-5967 Update 1 for a while now and am quite content with it, down want to move to DSM 6 just yet especially because there is no working Virtual Box package for DSM 6. So for the 5.2 version I am missing one update the DSM 5.2-5967 Update 2, now I am wondering if I can just safely update to this update though the DSM update feature or if I have to look into a new boot loader en go trough safe PAT down

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    yes and yes. Don't forget the serial, Id and sata thing in the grub.cfg an the ramdisk copy.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Hum, I can't get it installed on my N40L? The loader gets to booting the kernel but the server doesn't show in Synology assistant and no IP address is being assigned by the router. It seems like the nic isn't supported or something? I used the img linked on page 10 and the ramdisk file from page one EFI img (6688 KB), made the grub config changes but no joy. Which model Gen7 did you get it running on? Hi, On the N40L with 8 GB ram. Running fine, even the upgrade to Update 2 worked. Only issue I have eis the shutdown that hangs sometimes and the improper shutdown error in the

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    HI Have it working on a G7. Did not update to update 2 though. Did not do anything special other then using the bare metal mixed boot loader (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20216&start=90#p73344) and copy of the fixed ramdisk. Will try the upgrade to update 2 shortly an report back Ok, Just did the update to update 2, went fine, the only issue I have is the Server not shutting down properly and the error reporting it after the reboot. Anyone found a fix for that yet?
