  1. DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 6

    I updated to DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 6 without any issues so far. I have 2 x VM's, with 2 x arrays. One DSM 5.2 and the other DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 6. DSM 5.2 is my main system, and it does backups to the DSM 6.1 VM.... once all the synocommunity addons I use are compatible with DSM 6.1, I'll likely move to making DSM 6.1 my main VM, with the secondary VM as the backup VM.
  2. NZBGet for DSM 6.1

    Does anyone have a compatible package for DSM 6.1? Synocommunity is ages behind, and it doesn't seem like they'll release anything anytime soon. There was a guy who created packages for 6.1, but he decided he didn't have time to keep everything up to date, so he removed them all... this used to be the path: http://www.jadahl.com/synology6.1/packages/nzbget_bromolow-6.1_19.0-23.spk I haven't been able to find a mirror of it. Does anyone have a copy or something else that works? I'm not interested in using docker
  3. no LVM information - VG lost

    I would try mounting the array with linux first. Sometimes Synonolgy will mark the array as bad, when it's not really bad. How to undo that I'm not sure. But if your array is working (even if synology says it's bad), you should be able to mount it in linux and get to your data to back it up, then start over w/ synology. I went through my own experience years ago, that I documented here: https://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/fou ... t2600.html Good luck!
  4. Why bother VMware ESXi?

    What dutchman said. VM's are awesome I've never had an issue running a DSM VM in ESXI, and have been playing with DSM on 3rd party hardware before this site existed thanks to Vortex
  5. USB HDD as Internal Drive - Xpenology DSM 5.2

    You're right. I read it wrong. Sorry
  6. USB HDD as Internal Drive - Xpenology DSM 5.2

    You should re-read that article, and re-try it. Because I've been doing the same thing for years, and it works fine.
  7. DSM 6.x.x Loader

    You need to add rmmod=ata_piix to the grub/syslinux config on the kernel line. That's why you're seeing the boot loader as a drive in DSM when using ESXI. I'm not sure why the people creating VDMK's aren't doing that step. This will also prevent DSM from writing over your bootloader disk when doing a fresh install, and formatting blank drives on initial installs.
  8. DSM 6.x.x Loader

    Synology has pretty much phased out SHR on most of their high end models: https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledg ... d_RAID_SHR Some models are allowed to use SHR, if it was created in an earlier version of DSM, which is likely how Xpenology uses it w/ DS3615 (it's there, but not enabled in UI - but the xpenology guys enabled it).
  9. DSM 6.x.x Loader

    It never did, it was a feature they removed w/ the 2015 model. The other loader guys re-enabled it. I think it's there, just disabled behind the scenes. They'd have to chime in for more info.
  10. DSM 6.x.x Loader

    SHR was removed from ds3615 officially. It was re-enabled by those that created the loaders. https://www.synology.com/en-us/products/DS3615xs#spec Just an FYI
  11. DSM 6.x.x Loader

    People shouldn't really be trying these hacked loaders with their real data until some time goes by and they are tested more thoroughly... unless you don't mind the possibility of losing your data.
  12. DSM 6.x.x Loader

    When you're passing through the 9265, what mode is it in? Does it have an IT like mode like a 9211?
  13. XPenology DiskStation System Partition

    Only the data volume is an actual array (raid 5), the others are just mirrors of one another. You could just try mounting one of the system partitions by itself to see if you can see any files.
  14. ESXi - datastores vs RDM vs pass through disks

    Well the only way that DSM will have smart data from hardrives, is if you passthrough a controller to your DSM VM (it won't work w/ RDM). If you use virtual drives (on a datastore) for your array, then you won't be able to use your disks with systems outside esxi. Like if you wanted to move the disks to real synology system. Or if wanted to mount your array in Linux (outside of esxi), to recover a broken array, ect. I'm not sure about transfer speed differences.
  15. DSM NAS Build Picture Gallery

    Yeah, the unas case rocks
