    DSM 6.1.x iLO

    I know it can be done as Quicknick did it in his loader configuration tool. Maybe he made entry that loads the Linux kernel and run a script by passing init=/path/script or he pass custom argument on the kernel command line. I've never tried so I can't pin down the specific. You may want to contact him to see how he did it. It's best to get a DNS server up and running on your ESXi host. Then you can SSH onto the ESXi host to see the IP address of your xpenology (or any VM for that matter). If you don't have physical access to the hardware then how are you g
  2. I am very sure HD hibernation does not work wit Jun's loaders when the loaders came out. I am not sure if anyone ever work out a patch for it. I was away for months so I am not that up to date on what's going on with xpenolgy.

    You can host another VM (win/linux etc) on the same ESXi host to use find.synology.com from that VM (via remote log in that VM).

    Polanskiman/everyone last time I check, DSM 6.0 won't let the HDD go to sleep mode. Is this fixed in the current version? Does anyone has a ovf for ESXi 5.5 of the newest loader? Thanks
  5. I would tape close the inlet holes right below the hot swap bays. I would also tape close the side panel inlet holes. That way all the air is forced thru the hot swap bays cooling the HDD. As a trade off, your CPU and other components will run hotter. If everything gets too hot then get a spot cooling fan and mount it over the hot components to mix the air up and remove hot stagnant air.

    the update addresses are stored in /etc/synoinfo.conf here are some text from the file # DSM auto update default server rss_server="http://update.synology.com/autoupdate/genRSS.php" package_update_channel="beta" update_server="http://update.synology.com/" small_info_path="http://update.synology.com/smallupdate" enable_pkg_autoupdate_all="no" pushservice_ds_info_updated="yes" rss_server_ssl="https://update.synology.com/autoupdate/genRSS.php" dsm_autoupdate_type="download" Change it to whatever to be on a safe side. dynax
  7. I am not sure exactly what you mean from your post. But if you want Xpenology to see to use your RAID share natively (as volume2 for example), you can do just that. On your Xpenology, create a very small volume2. Then ssh onto your Xpenology box Edit the file /etc/rc search for the line # checking and Mounting filesystem(s) ... /usr/syno/bin/synobootseq --set-check-fs >/dev/null 2>&1 /etc.defaults/rc.volume start /etc.defaults/rc.syn start Add the above line (/etc.defaults/rc.syn start) below the rc.volume start Now you need t
  8. BTFRS vs SHR is the same as Apple vs Orange. One is a file system, the other is a RAID management.

    sorry i'm just guessing, its what i would try so .... looking further into the extra.lzma, there is /etc/rc.modules ... EXTRA_FIRMWARES="bnx2/bnx2-rv2p-09ax-6.0.17.fw bnx2/bnx2-rv2p-09-6.0.17.fw bnx2/bnx2-rv2p-06-6.0.15.fw tigon/tg3_tso5.bin tigon/tg3_tso.bin tigon/tg3.bin" ... so looks like the firmware file has to be mentioned in that file to work? Tossed a kernel ID? Not sure what that is supposed to mean but if modules were not compiled against the proper source code they would simply not work. Do not confuse modules and firmware. All modules within the v1.02a (or v1.02a2)
  10. If you have a real Synology box, take a picture of it with MAC address/serial number then contact them. They'll get you sorted out. Until then, don't use quick connect. It will only be a matter of time before all external-access apps calls home for validation when they got sick of the abuse.

    xpenology 5.2 works well with ASRock q1900-itx board. In BIOS, set the boot csm to legacy.
  12. If you use ESXi 5.5 (or newer) 1) Use this loader (jun's) https://mega.nz/#!5koz0ZjZ!SLWdLCD2db22 ... m-aJQ4w2gI 2) Add a HDD 3) Then download the 6.1 pat file (DSM_DS3615xs_15047.pat) and install that That is a clean install. If you want to upgrade from your previous DSM. then skip step (2). Reboot and you are done.
  13. Try this https://mega.nz/#!Ul5RXKQR!_IiCurbduvbR ... ggqj5vo_Sg I think it would work with LSI-9211. It has been a while and I don't even remember if the driver for your control was included or not.
  14. Is this loader still based on the beta code similar to jun's loader?

    [quote name="cuspess" Hey people' date=' while I am hoping to hear some experience sharing regarding the problem I faced, I have been researching and came across a statement saying "USB boot is not supported in ESXi". Can someone with related knowledge confirm that?? Thanks[/quote] ESXi does not support VM booting from USB. You can work around the issue with "plop boot manager". Basically, you use CDROM iso as a boot drive in your VM, which then points to the USB stick. I am not sure it's worth the trouble. If you want to edit the config file on the VM, you can just do that, ther

    If you are talking about the ESXi 5.5 OVF that I uploaded then it's the same as jun 1.01 OVF. I only made it compatible with ESXi 5.5 and the Classic vSphere Client since I don't like the web client.

    Not sure using a restore from an older version is a good idea. Restore config works great. That's actually a a step to move from ext4 to btrfs
  18. what bglf83 means is this Setup a hypervisor on your hardware (KVM, ESXi etc). Xpenology is a NAS VM, low memory, low CPU. Use Win7 (just an example) as a Flex Server VM. This one can use all the CPU power you have. An alternative is install Ubuntu (or any Linux really) on your hardware. Within Ubuntu, setup a Xpenology VM (via KVM). Flex is installed on the main Ubunto. I would advise against running a heavily utilized app onto the Xpenology DSM. That just makes it hard to figure out where the issue is when something goes wrong.

    For those users who still stay on ESXi 5.5 and dislike the vCenter Web Client, here's ovf file: https://mega.nz/#!Ul5RXKQR!_IiCurbduvbR ... ggqj5vo_Sg Don't forget to add a Harddrive before setup. This is jun's 1.01 converted to HW 8.0

    I am very sure there won't be a fix for this one until the proper source code is released.

    The source code used in this this loader came from DSM6 beta2. I wouldn't trust my "production" data on a beta source code.

    You won't lose your data that way. The sata/ide/scsi data drives doesn't matter. Synology doesn't care. As long as there are drivers for your controller in the new loader (sata/ide/scsi) and there are valid OS (pat file) file installed in the drive, migration will work.

    P.S. If Hyper Backup requires the use of Synology services (does it?) then never mind: like others, I don't mind using Xpenology, but don't feel like defrauding Synology by using fake serials, etc. Otherwise I'd still like to know. Even on the real Synology box, I got the blank page the first time. Close it and try again and everything seems to work. On the Xpenology box, I got the same situation (close the browser and try again and it seems to work). I saw the synoauth.synology.com address also. This is the first time I saw an app bounces traffic around like that.

    Anyone have an answer to this, btw? At which step do you have a blank screen? If I click on Hyper Backup, it launches backup Wizard. I then can select S3 then [Next] and a backup destination settings opened up. I don't have the keys needed to go further. Up until that point, it seems to work fine on my end.

    You can definitely do what you want with DS cloud app on iPhone w/o QC. DS Cloud listens to port 6690. On your router, you need to open this port to your Xpenology IP address. You can then just use many of the free DDNS service to link you DS Cloud App back to Xpenology. On your iPhone DS cloud app, click on the first ICON "Cloud Station". You should see the folder that you picked for "sync". Click on the (!) on the right of that folder name. Under Sync direction, select "Upload only". Now, after upload your photo to your Xpenology, you can delete those on the iPhone and
