  1. Copy the directory /volume1/@appstore to someplace else. Reinstall your apps, but do not start them. Copy back the original @appstore. Start the apps. Everything app-wise should be as it was before the reinstall.
  2. Been on it for a couple of days, all good so far.
  3. Bare metal Microserver Gen8, was on 6.1, thought I'd update to 6.1.1 for laughs. Did not boot afterwards, no matter; I've got recovering my config down to a fine art these days!
  4. You need AMS for ESXi, not XPEnology. If you used the HPE custom ESXi ISO, you should already have it. If not grab the HPE offline bundle and install that.
  5. Works like a charm, and I can see all four drives.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Yes go ahead and update, just did it to mine.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Add the SynoCommunity repo to the package manager.
  8. 6.x is not supported on Hyper-V as yet, so no recommendation to make.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Do you have any info on getting that to work? I tried it the other day and failed, so assumed it wasn't supported by XPE.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Your apps are only not installed, all your data is still there, if you backup the @appstore folder before you reinstall your apps, you can copy back the var folder to retain settings.
  11. Boot into force install and do a non-migration install. You'll lose your settings but your data will be fine.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    "Clean" install went fine. As nothing is deleted you can copy the /volume1/@appstore/*/var directory from your apps somewhere and restore it back. Slower than an upgrade, but not difficult by any stretch.

    No good for me upgrading either. HP Gen8 Microserver... boots up, lots of drive activity, no network though. Guess I'll try the clean install, it doesn't hurt the data anyway.
  14. I've got a broken network config, DSM is completely inaccessible. On older versions this wouldn't be a big deal as you can access the console locally to make repairs. Can't do that on the 6.0 loader. Mounting the drives in Ubuntu only gives access to /volume1 so can't fix it there. Force reinstall keeps the broken settings. On a proper Syno unit you can reset them without losing any data, is there a way to do that on XPE at all?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I have a minor issue, when I reboot XPE a small customisation is lost; a change to /etc/passwd Until I modify it, a few packages wedding launch (as I changed the user they run as). Any idea what's causing it, or is it just a DSM6 thing, as it was fine on previous versions.

    Did you update grub.conf with your USB sticks PID/VID?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Got my Gen8 upgraded. Seems there is now a built in apps group which ruined my custom one so some packages wouldn't run without some changes. It causes a bit of odd behaviour in that after a short period of running iLO will crash and the fans will ramp up. This is only temporary as it recovers after a while.
  18. For PPTP (spit) see if the router has a GRE option.

    Working DSM 6

    SSH in and edit the version in the .vmx file.
  20. Multiple vmdk on top of an existing array is a massive waste of time. Either use one huge vmdk and let the hardware handle the redundancy, or pass the physical disks through and let DSM do it.
  21. Teaming won't give you more speed between two devices. That's not how it works.
  22. Hyper-V will work in the same way too.
