[PSA] ESXi 6.7 with Jun's Loader 1.03b for DSM 6.2-23739 Update 2 (or maybe above)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I was lucky enough to find the package that Pigr in the forum posted actually would work fine out of the box with ESXi 6.7.  

 

I'd write up in more details tonight to give a step by step on the installation method.

1.03b or 1.02b?

Pigr8 are referring to 1.02b in his post, and the file posted, unless there is an update I have missed.

kazuni did say  DSM 6.2-23739, so it would has to be 1.03 loader. But there is a  1.03b? where you get that?

Sorry, I also use Google Translate to view the discussion area. I am worried that the translation is not accurate, so I published this article in Chinese.

just FYI - this guide - the Chinese portion (mostly the .vmdk file ) allowed a perfect migration from 6.1 (1.02b2) to a 6.2 with a LSI passthrough

created the vmdk for the new synoboot.img (renamed synoboot62.img, and synoboot62.vmdk respectivly)
uploaded to datastore
removed old synoboot file HDD from config
switched to bios booting
added new Synboot making sure to use SATA/SATA
Used remote console to boot (VMRC) so I can force into VMWARE/ESXi mode

wizard migrated perfectly

Hi,

 

If you want, you can use my VM template : https://file.niko44.fr/sharing/CAGHguOMW which is referenced in the French Section.

This template offer the capability to use one VM DSM 6.2. All you need to do is to add your vmdk 'data' to the scsi controller.

 

Note that if you want to use more than one VM DSM in the same LAN, you need to change the mac adress in the synobook.vmdk locate in grub.conf.
