  1. If you can't access your Xpenology box but you still wish to try and 'fix' some configuration files or perhaps you wish to finally make that backup that you should have done before fiddling with the root user, then you can access the content of the system partition and data partitions through a Live Ubuntu CD (or whatever unix flavoured OS you so desire). Here is how to: 1 - Make a Live Ubuntu USB drive. Ideally it is more convenient to make a persistent Live Ubuntu USB drive but that's not required for this tutorial and it would just complicate things unnecessarily. 2
  2. This is an updated tutorial version from the one I made last year. It will enable you to migrate from DSM 5.2 to DSM 6.1.7 directly without the need to upgrade to DSM 6.0.2 first. If for some reason you want to upgrade to DSM 6.0.2 first or simply you do not want to upgrade to DSM 6.1.7 but only to DSM 6.0.2 then use the link above. To upgrade from DSM 6.0.2 to DSM 6.1.7 read here. As most of you know by now Jun was able to find a way to install DSM 6 on non Synology boxes. Here is the thread that I recommend reading. At least make an effort and read the OP: https://xpenology.
  3. I created a tutorial for the French section so I thought, what the heck, let's do it for the English one as well. Here it goes. As most of you know by now Jun was able to find a way to install DSM 6 on non Synology boxes. Here is the thread that I recommend reading. At least make an effort and read the OP: https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/6253-dsm-6xx-loader/ Below is what you need for the operation. I will assume you are doing all this under Windows 10, 8, 7 or XP. If you are on a MAC computer have a look at this post I made on how to burn the image to a USB drive and
  4. After fiddling with it for a day, and getting it to work, I thought it would be nice to share the knowledge, especially since "officially" only ESXi is supported, and ESXi is picky about supporting stuff... The main reason for me to move to a hypervisor was because Synology has not yet introduced NVMe support AT ALL. And even with a kernel driver, the Storage Manager will not see it as an SSD, as an HDD, or anything. Synology is silent about this, even though some have requested it on their forums (although they do not have a model with M.2 NVMe connector yet, they have some models
  5. Hello! This is a short guide about how to downgrade from DSM 6.2 to DSM 6.1 after a failed upgrade. I made this mistake myself, so i'm sharing how to fix it! Your going to need a spare HDD or SSD. Make sure there is nothing on it. You've installed DSM before, so you should have your synoboot.img from JunsLoader. Your current bootloader on your USB in now NONFUNCTIONING, you will need to reflash your USB with JunsLoader. Once you have your new, reflashed USB stick, unplug ALL drives from the motherboard. Make sure there are NO SATA interfaces connected.
  6. If you have a dynamic IP, you will need to setup a DDNS to access your NAS from outside your local network. So to start thing off you will need to open an account with a DDNS service provider. There are plenty out there, some paid, some free. The two below are the ones that I use personally. They are free. If you find others then you should also be able to use those. Some of these providers might already be part of the list included by Synology in which case you can skip the 'Customize' button and simply use the 'Add' button and select your service provider from there. The configur
  7. Hi this is how I managed to get DSM 6.2 running on the free VMWare Workstation Player 15. I know there are other tutorials for VMWare Workstation Pro and the procedure is quite similar. Following on of these tutorials (https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/13006-tutorial-vmware-workstation-dsm-62-install-esxi-compatible) brought me very close to my goal but still I had to do some try and error, therefore I am sharing my piece of the cake here. Please note: This is how I made it work, dont blame me if this is not working for you. 1. Loader Downlo
  8. I have a question regarding models. Running baremetal: DS3617XS 1.0.2b and 6.1.3 15152 Update1 Before I had ds3615xs installed. I migrated to ds3617xs becouse of my 2X Xeon prosessors. (2 X 2.16 quad) The thing i found out is that synocomunity and others dont support ds3617xs with their packages. I run Docker for some of these packages, but should I, or not, migrate back to ds3615xs with my prosessors in mind? Another thing that occured is that my 12Gb ram, was reduced to 8Gb ram after migrating to ds3617xs. That might be hardware fault, not sure. Thank you.
  9. Can anyone link me to a PCIe Gigabit NIC that they have confirmed working on Jun's DSM6.1? Ordered an Intel nic on amazon, of course it was too old (used e1000e). Looking to buy one that I know will work. Thanks! Currently using an AR8151 on DSM5.2, but it doesn't seem to be working with Jun's loader.
