finally got the latest gnoboot working bare hardware with xeon cpu 16gb ram and 8 3tb on a M1015 adapter, the only issue i'm having is nic speed is only around 35mbs which i know i can usually hover around 80, could be because the board has the i210 nic

 

any suggestions thanks

You forgot to include the Ethernet controller, pm me instead. BTW, a few users were able to install gnoboot without any issues on hyper-v @nas1.cn .

 

 

Hello!

 

first let me thank you for your hard work, i just read about gnoboot and its looking really good :smile:

I tried to install it under my hyperv 2012 r2 and got your alpha 10.3 and im having the same issue like offensive1985, there is no network connection when i use the normal network adapter. But when i use the legacy one i can find the diskstation in the dsm assistant.

Your advise was the one in the quote, but i have to admit i dont really understand what you mean by that.

But in the meantime new versions arrived so is it possible now to run the 10.3 under hyperv with normal network or do i have to run the legacy adapter ?

Of course i would also be very happy if somebody else has an advice for me !

 

thank you in advance :smile:

 

greetings

simmboo

I don't use Hyper-V, so it's best you try it first and then share your results.

 

Hello,

is it possible get get VirtualBox or Vmware Workstation working in xpenology DSM5? I think there are only the kernel modules needed and a debian chroot to get VMware Workstation working on xpenology. Do you think it is possible?

 

Regards,

Memo

It should work, though, not the latest VMware drivers.

how to change mac? gnoboot-alpha10.3-vfat

You don't need to, but 10.3 has a broken /etc/rc.network. You have to manually comment out the line that modifies MAC address.

Try blacklisting e1000 using rmmod GRUB option.

Is anyone else having an issue where the resource monitor does not properly display network traffic? My network monitor constantly shows 0 bytes up and 0 bytes down, even when downloading and uploading.

Hello gnoboot ,

I think that your work is the easiest to install and most updated.

 

If I lived in Italy I would offer you a dinner, but they do not live nearby, I would like to make a donation.

How can I do?

Hi gnoboot.

After successful migration from 5.0 beta to gnoboot-alpha-10.3 5.0-4458 i opened SSH and run dmesg. There are some strange things that i can not understand and resolve.

Try re-installing the app related to those daemons.

Simply ignore it if you're not using sound devices.

It's related to DSM that I can't fix:(

Try re-installing the app related to those daemons. - Tried but log is the same (also tried with new DSM installation with same packages on test HDD - same result). Event that it says the service was killed, i can see services running :?:

Simply ignore it if you're not using sound devices. - currently not using

It's related to DSM that I can't fix:(

Did anybody successfully migrated from DSM 4.3-3827 directly to gnoBoot and DSM 5.0-4458? Do one really need to upgrade to trantor`s DSM 5.0 first?

Works on HP N36L very well.

Just make a clean install, dont use the old config.

Use Web Assistent, typ in the browser the ip adress and install the dsm from the browser

Storagedata stays on the disk.

No SMART does not work with Raw Disk Mapping. BUT if you use ESXi pass though with VT-d it does work. Will be doing a video on this as well. Also this might get fixed in a future version of gnoBoot.

Performance is better then you might imagine. Not to give away the spoiler but if configured right it's all most on par with a physical box.

 

Thinks for the heads up on the old Firefox. I will look in to this.

Ok. Thanks for the fast reply. The issue is that I have a HP N54L and it doesn't support VT-d. This is the only thing that prevents me to run DSM in ESXi. When I tested OMW(OpenMediaVault) SMART worked fine with RDM, so hopefully gnoBoot will figure this one out.

N54L. I successfully migrated from trantor`s DSM 4.3-3827 directly to gnoBoot and DSM 5.0-4458.

 

As I have no monitor I used default menu editing trick from viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2152&p=10720&hilit=menu.lst#p10720

Temporary set default 1 and than after migration revert it back.

 

smartmontools (smartctl) works with RDM drives in terminal of DSM, but DSM uses synodisk (synology tool) to read temps, and it returns -1 when I guess it doesn't have access to the controller.

I tried to translate the topics from nas1.cn about hyper-v and getting it to run with the normal ethernet controller but

i didn't really find anything useful.

 

I downloaded it again and tried to install again , but when i use the normal controller the synology assistant can't find the disk station.

On the Drivers list on gnoboot.me is the hyper-v network driver listed as hv_netvsc.

But i have to admit that im not really good with linux and i don't know how to "insmod" the driver.

I booted again and pressed e , made a new line with "o" and then typed insmod="hv_netvsc" but i didn't work.

 

Has anybody a tip for me ?

 

greets

You have it all here sir: :wink:

How to check HDD SMART status:

1. Shut down Synology VM

2. Clear the RDMFilter flag on your ESXi server:

- Configuration - Software - Advanced Settings - RdmFilter.HbaIsShared=OFF - Click OK

3. Start Synology VM

4. SSH login

5. Check the first RDM drive in the array:

- smartctl -a /dev/sda

Update on XenServer Paravirtualization

 

I tried to run gnoboot using XenServer PV (pygrub), however getting error in Xen console when starting VM:

Internal error: xenopsd internal error: XenguestHelper.Xenctrl_dom_linux_build_failure(2, " panic: xc_dom_core.c:616: xc_dom_find_loader: no loader\\\"")

 

Which i found is result of XenServer having pygrub compiled WITHOUT LZMA/XS support for kernel compression (which holds for last XenServer release http://discussions.citrix.com/topic/330 ... z-support/)

 

gnoBoot what compression are you using? (I could not find it using `file zImage`)

 

Anyway in XenServer 6.2.5 (beta) LZMA/XS is supported so if that is reason why it is not working then i would wait for XenServer 6.2.5 stable release (https://xen-orchestra.com/testing-xenserver-6-2-5-beta/).

 

Thanks
