Esxi 6.0.0 update from DSM 5.2-5967 to DSM 6.1


Recommended Posts

Hello folks,


I have search on the forum and internet and I can't find an information on how to do it. There is some tutorial to do it without esxi but not with it.

Currently, I don't have enough space on other disk to save everything and make a fresh install. So I would like to update without loosing any data.

Does someone already did it ?


For my understanding, I should select Jun's mod 1.02b vmdk file and start it as a primary drive. But will it update or overwrite the current xpenology?


Thx, David

Done. I install another DSM 5.2 and test the migration (4 times to be sure everything is fine) and it's ok.


For people who would like to do it : 


  • Stop the VM
  • Change my IDE hard drive from 0:0 to 0:1
  • Download and extract synoboot_1.02b_ESXi_only
  • Change in the vmdk ddb.adapterType to "ide"
  • Add in DataStore : synoboot_1.02b_ESXi_only (synoboot.img and synoboot.vmdk)
  • Add a hard drive, select synoboot.vmdk and set it to IDE 0:0
  • Restart the VM and follow the migration stop
