    DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 3

    Applied it to mine barebones/1.02b build, via the Control Panel, installed, updated, all is far as I can tell. It took about 90secs fo the GUI to be available. 🤠
  6. Upgraded bare metal install, using Jun's 1.02b boot loader, running DSM to via control panel. Seems to have installed somewhat successfully, but it wouldn't come up via the GUI, seems fixed IP changed. Found it on the Synology Assistant, with new IP and showing MIGRATABLE status. Clicked to "MIGRATE" retaining data/settings, took just about 2min and it was backup again, just on the new IP, reset it via the GUI, back to the fixed IP it had originally.

    Drivers requests for DSM 5.2

    Good Day Trantor! I have a bit of an issue, you might be able to help me solve. I am using an Dell OptiPlex 7010 SFF system, which has this build in ethernet: Intel® 82579LM Gigabit1 Ethernet LAN 10/100/1000 (Remote Wake Up, PXE support and Intel Active Management Technol- ogy support) Dell Driver Page: ... egoryId=NI Intel Driver Page: ... hernet-PHY Though I am using the most current XPEboot, and doing a fresh DSM install, it seems that all of that, is only seeing the interface as a 10/100 and not the 1000 speed, which in fact generates a pop-up message on the DSM once it's up and running, that I should upgrade my network card for faster speeds. So as a sanity test, I installed Windows 10, it totally installed the Intel driver and does in fact connect at 1Gb, using the same ethernet cable and connection to my network. The driver obviously works in general, but I not aware of any setting anyway, to enable that gigabit speed....figuring at this point, it's a driver issue. Any thoughts or help you could provide on this? Thank you for all of your spectacular support and work, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!!! Greg

    Drivers requests for DSM 5.2

    Hello Trantor, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK ALL THE TIME, YOU AND THE TEAM HAVE MADE THIS AMAZING!!! I am running DSM 5.2-5644 Update 2, using the built-in NIC currently, Dell Inspiron 620, and it's working fine. Having said that, I am however wanting to add an additional NIC, which is a PCI-E Dual Port Gigabit card. HP PCI-E NC382T Broadcom BCM5709CC0KPB6 is what's printed on the chip. ... id=3794317 It's not currently recognized, in my DSM with the most current XPEnoboot 5.2-5644.1, so assuming not supported...but I could be wrong. Any help or feedback you are able to provide would be most appreciated!
  11. Zorax - Interesting feedback. I too had an SSD Cache Installed. Oddly enough, if I remove that, the system will seemingly start up, not go into the endless booting loop, but in my case, it's still not accessible via the web interface, and interestingly too, when the login prompt comes up, I can type in ROOT, but it seems to hang or something after that, so can't even get logged in at the CLI. Strange....
  12. I know there is a lot of hard working going on, maintaining this code and functionality - so for that I thank you very much, most most appreciative! Just wanted to pass on, what I can to help... I had upgraded my Xpenology setup from 5592 to 5644 via the control panel, and though the update processed through initially, it just goes into a boot loop since. My setup is very generic, no iSCI or ESXI usage at all, just super basic. Just tried this new boot image, and wanted to let you know, it's still doing the same thing, so it seems this isn't resolving whatever is causing the endless re-boot looping. Thank You!

    Jumbo Frame Issues

    Aigor: Unfortunately, what you were talking about, isn't the problem at all. The router/switch is for sure Jumbo Packet ready and functional, as it's been in use for some time, same port, same cable. I guess wasn't conveying my question clearly enough... I have 4 systems, all with Gigabit Ethernet Ports built into the motherboard, they ALL connect and function great at Gigabit speeds, HOWEVER, only ONE can successfully have Jumbo Packets enabled and work perfectly, the other THREE, once enabled and system restarted, seems to no longer function, can not be seen on the network. So I am trying to figure out which adapters actually support/should function with that setting enabled, maybe some basic guidelines of chipsets/versions of network hardware, even if I go buy an add-on card, hopefully not only limited to Intel. The WORKING Dell Desktop has a Realtek RTL81XX PCI-E chip.

    Jumbo Frame Issues

    Hello folks! I really lucked out on my very first install of DSM, 99% of everything worked, including the use of Jumbo Frames 9000. What's been perplexing to me though, I have 3 other systems, all with 10/100/1000 built-in motherboard ethernet interfaces, either Realtek or Broadcomm, and though they are working great at gigabit (1000Mbps), as soon as I enable Jumbo Frames at 9000, the control panel/networking comes back fine, seemingly indicating no issues -- BUT, when you re-start the system, it no longer appears on the network, inaccessible completely. So how can I tell which adapters/interfaces are supported and can handle it, without having to deal with this trial and error, erase & reload type of scenario? Any thoughts or feedback most appreciated! Cheers!
  15. Interesting to be sure! Based on several comments here, or people taking the plunge and it seemingly working fine - I tried it too...but mine however, is not working fine. The system boots, gets right to be point where it would be starting the Synology Trigger and the system would be up, unfortunately it just reboots and loops. I just updated mine through the control panel. Just to be sure, I have forced a reboot several times, still no happiness. Fortunately for me, going on vacation soon, and so I can be patient in waiting for updated XPEonboot. FYI
