  1. It should take the old vmdk-s with no issues, at most you will get an disk error at first boot, solved by a simple repair from dsm. I recommend adding one vmdk at a time, starting with the least critical one; that way you minimize the risk of a potential problem. I'm still using the same vm that I posted here with no issues, updated to the latest dsm availeble.
  2. Glad you solved the issue; I had the same behavior since 5.5 and a hpvsa downgrade always solved the problem; that's why I insisted (a little) with that solution.
  3. this: up to esxi 6.0 - downgrade hpvsa driver ( use "scsi-hpvsa-5.5.0-88OEM.550.0.0.1331820.x86_64.vib" ) esxi 6.5 - downgrade hpvsa driver (same as above) and disable the esxi ahci module

    Set the boot drive to dependent, start the vm and recover; after that you can get back and set it as independent.
  5. https://mega.nz/#!dxgDjCpD!CNc0upEGoN3VGbZhAdM1MYpgxVq-yv5L8j_MGvyS1JQ ovf with static address 192.168.1.19, same user and pass. Just now when I started the vm to modify the ip settings the syno app and findsynology.com didn't find any address to connect to in my lan (I had 3); i looked in the router status page and all the ip's were listed there.
  6. The mac address in my ovf is the one you posted, Jun's one; stop any other xpeno vm on your lan. Also check your router for assigned ip's, findsynology.com and their app dosen't always work. I could assign an static ip to the vm and export to ovf but not everyone uses the same network values; I mean 192.168.1.101 but others might use 10.10..... or 192.168.0..., or the 101 might be already taken. PS: you have to change the mac and serial with valid ones in the grub.cfg file, changing the mac in vm settings does not help. I don't know how to debug, just that is possible.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    In this topic you wil find how to change mac and sn after installation: Never tried DS916 and DS3617, and I don't have much time to play with them; I can't make any promise, my resources are also limited (4gb free on the only datastore I have ATM) I transferred my data disk to a new created vm with no issues; I'm using RDM (vmdk files pointing to fizical drives). Remove the drives from the old vm, add them to the new one and boot; it will give an error message at start but it will fix it without losing the data. I do this one drive at the time, I think it is safer; try fir

    Might be an esx issue; read about it here, there is also an easy fix; read at least the last 3 pages : https://homeservershow.com/forums/topic/9602-esxi-notes/?page=10 this is the solution, from that topic (working for me with esxi 6.5): " downloaded the hpvsa-5.5.0-88.zip archive (as per HP advisory) and uploaded the vib to the datastore. eg /datastore1/patch/scsi-hpvsa-5.5.0-88OEM.550.0.0.1331820.x86_64.vib via the ESXi web interface http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c05026755 8. remove the exsisting scsi-hpvsa_5.5.0.102-1O driver (vi

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Thanks How did you obtain that vmdk file ? I want to edit the grub.cfg and make a new one. And what linux version I chose for os when creating a new vm ? No usb 3 for "other linux 64"
  12. The last vm I posted is using Jun's alpha loader for 6.1; I'm still using it with no issues, didn't update to 6.1.1. I don't have the time to try and test other loaders
  13. Just create a new vm and add the drives from the old one to it; you will loose your settings and config but not the data. At least that was the case from 6.0 to 6.1, not sure about 6.1 to 6.1.1, no time for tests
  14. I have similar hadware, 6.1 on esxi 6.5 and drives added to dsm using RDM; the thing is mine are not AHCI, I'm using raid (from gen8 bios) and can't use the same testing method (no smart info) I also disabled the vmware driver and downgraded to the old hpvsa driver (.88) for better performance; I can't give you specific numbers to compare performance but if you know other testing methods that will work for both of us we can compare the results.
  15. Thanks, I actually forgot about the vm tools and didn't install on 6.1. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  16. Yes, I updated without issues a few days ago.
  17. I decided to avoid the migrate process and moved all hdd's from the 6.0 vm to the 6.1 vm (using RDM for my data); nothing was lost, all ok, uptime 3 days so far. I had to install the apps again and to configure it from scratch. Before the move I changed the mac and sn in grub.cfg to avoid any conflicts; I'm sure it would have worked without that but I kept the old 6.0 vm for fallback (for eventual problems with 6.1) and it had the same mac.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Sonnyboy, did you migrate yours from DSM 6? What I mean is you replaced loader 1.01 with 1.02, then boot up with old hdd installed, go through the migration process? any error afterwards? I am on Gen8 with esxi, about to migrate as soon as someone succeed without the error. thanks Also on esxi with xpeno 6.0 atm; tried to migrate using a 6.0 test vm, the vm boots after the boot vmdk replacement , I start the install, chose migrate and after that nothing, the vm does not appear on the network anymore, I can't connect to it. I waited about 10 minutes, forced shut down the vm, powered on

    3615 I guess. Even without other vm's in the lan after the migration starts I can't find anything on my network. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  21. If you want to change the Mac you need to edit the cfg file on the boot vmdk. I think you can also press c or e during the boot sequence and issue a command like Mac 00xx00xx0whatever Not sure about the key and the correct syntax for changing the Mac address but I remember reading something about that. Maybe someone can clear this up ? I can confirm that the Mac ending in a785 is the one in the loader, all my test vm's have the same one. Edit Lol, just a few posts above: Hit e during boot Set mac1= Thanks chege
  22. Here you have a video with the vm creation process No time to put it on youtube, and I'm not sure that it won't be taken down for various legal reasons. You will see there that I get an ip, if find.synology.com is not working try using other means to see all the clients in your lan. Edit - video removed, to little info for a 400 mb file maybe i'll make a better one someday.
  23. That is the simplest and easiest way to do it. I made this vm's for the lazy and for those that have issues with jun's images, like I had the first time with the loader for dsm 6.0. Unfortunately some setups are to diferent from mine, hardware or software gremlins can cause problems. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  24. I didn't really helped nothing worked; and the lag from ws12 in teamviewer was legendary I tried to use jun's loader directly, to eliminate all possible issues generated from my created vm, but that also didn't get an ip address. Try and create another xpeno 5.2 for test, see if that works; since you already have one going the new one should also work; if not there is a problem with the current esxi network setup. Not sure if the esxi version is the problem, but I hope you find a solution (and share it with us)
  25. That is the way I got it made. First from jun's to ws12, edited and converted the vm, then exported for the esxi use. The install process was made on a esxi vm. Start a team viewer session, will try to make it work together. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
