  1. Of course, web archive! Didn't think about that... Many thanks mo2mk! Cheers
  2. Thanks NeoID, I know pass-through doesn't work. To be honest I only use VHD's, so for me that is no problem. But many thanks for the heads up!
  3. I'm a long time user of XPEnology. Using it on my ESXi 5.5 box without any problems. In the near future I will have a new server which will use Windows Server 2012r2 with Hyper-V. On that server I want to use XPEnology. Does any one have a (recent) guide on installing XPEnology on Hyper-V? I "found" a guide on ( but the site is down, so no guide... Any help, tips and tricks are welcome.
  4. I have disk attached to my ESXI - XPenology machine. I want to expand that harddisk now because I'm running out of space. I have expanded the harddisk in ESXi without problems. I now see a 260GB harddisk instead of 250GB harddisk in DSM but I cannot expand the volume so it uses the unused space. I now have 10GB of wasted space. The 10GB "upgrade" is just as a test. I want to expand it further but it does not work atm. Anyone know how to fix this?
  5. Same problem as sl0n has, I did not work for me. The steps 2 & 3 are not that hard and do not take a lot of time. But maybe it works for others to just load the ISO. For me it didn't...
  6. I just upgraded from "nanoboot" and the latest DSM 5.0 to Xpenoboot + DSM 5.1-5022 followed by DSM 5.1-5022 Update 2 (from GUI) - no issues whatsoever. I basically replaced "nanoboot" with the latest Xpenoboot (vmdk files) and choose "install / upgrade" option in grub loader. Once booted, If it goes in the right direction, you should see "migrate" button available, just follow the instructions to finish it. Note: I've done it on a "backup" DSM, it is a copy of my "production" data. It's an advantage of running it in virtual environment, you can always try things in a separate VM. C
  7. You're welcome mate! Indeed you can use VMXNET3 instead of E1000. But in my experience the E1000 works a little better. Maybe it has to do with my hardware, I don't know. But that's the reason I choose E1000.
  8. This guide is created by Panja and was made for personal use, for his own ESXi install. But shared with the nice people at so they can benefit from this as well. Inspired by the install guide that was created by LeeBear and the install guides provided on The Open-VM-Tools are provided by gnoBoot. A special thanks to these guys!!! Software used: VMware ESXi 5.5 XPEnoboot StarWind V2V converter WinImage Synology DSM .PAT Open-VM-Tools: link 1 or link 2 1. Create the VM - Use VSphere Client and Create new Custom VM on your ESXi host - Na
  9. You can download Open-Vm-Tools (v5) from: Install them via Package Manager in DSM. Once installed you can do a clean shutdown or restart of your XPenology from within ESXI vSphere Client.
  10. Used the VMDK boot image from Booted up and choose upgrade 4528. Went to the webinterface and choose migrate. Picked the original PAT file and upgraded to 4528. After that I went in to the webinterface again and did an upgrade to 4528 update 1 (without the SED command). All seems to be ok! No disks unmounted etc. Running ESXI 5.5 build 2068190 [EDIT] Only thing that was not working and needed a reinstall was the Open-VM-Tools. After removing it, reboot, reinstall, reboot everything was fine again!
  11. Accidently I have installed the update 7 without logging in to SSH first and do the commands: sed 's/flashupdateDeb/flashupdateDeb1/' / > /autoupd@te.info1 mv /autoupd@te.info1 / But everything seems to be ok... No unmounted volumes, access rights are ok.
  12. I have updated to 4493 update 5. Same problems that I have when I updated to update 4. Install went well. Everything works. But after a reboot my volume is unmounted. Reboot again. Volume is back. But... Web Station is disabled and all of the user accounts in Photo Station are reset e.g. all user accounts do not have permission anymore to view (photo) folders. Also Spotweb needs to be enabled again. (probably because Web Station was disabled at boot). See my post about update 4: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3802&start=10#p22962
