Tutorial: Install DSM 6.2 on ESXi 6.7


Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

I have followed the steps and was able to create 2 VM's with DSM on them successfully.

 

now my plan is to create a High Availaibility between these two devices using High Availability Ad-on. so i have installed the high Availability Add-on on both these devices but when trying to create a cluster am getting an error mesg 

 

as per below

 

"Unable to to Establish the cluster connection. This may happen because the cluster connection is not connected via a switch"

 

My Ste up is as follows

 

2 nic's on both vms

assigned static IP's n the same Vlan with the same Subnet mask

 

 

Any idea what could be the issue here?

 

thank you

ok i was able to create the cluster successfully. But after creating the cluster, nic 2  that is used for Heart Beat configuration is completely wiped off  so in HA management windows, it's reporting the device as offline.

 

Any idea what might be causing the issue?

 

Note: Nic 2 (HA heartbeat) is on static IP.

 

Thank you

Hi, long time synology user, first time xpenology user.

I've just bought a gen8 hp microserver to install xpenology with a xeon processor and 16GB ram, an SSD installed in the optical bay, and 4 X 1TB HDD (that I am hoping to upgrade to 4X12 TB). I boot esxi from a USB stick.

 

I initially tried installing the DS3617XSv1 XPenology_v5.ova that I found earlier in this thread, but but I get a message that no Hard disk is found on the DS3617xs

 

I am now followed the instructions at the beginning of the thread and creating one from scratch.

 

1. For the first ready to go image the serial ports give me errors while editing the VM; Do I need those?

2. Any ideas on how to fix?

 

Additional questions:

a. What is the latest DSM version that's supported? 

b. Do I need an intel nic?

c. Any issues with installing 4X12TB drives?

 

Thanks!

Update:

 

So I finished the complete install on esxi 6.7u3 based on this tutorial of DS3617XS  synoboot.img 1.03b and the VMDK 6.0.2 Jun's Mod V1.0 initially with 6.2 then I did a snapshot and upgraded to 6.2.2

 

I have this installed on an HP micro server Gen8 upgraded to a Xeon E3-1265L V2.

 

Even though I don't have intel nics on the HP but via esxi everything seems to working fine.

 

1. Is there anything I should be upgrading to maintain stability? Do we need 1.04? I read somewhere that 3615 is more stable than 3617- is this true? Should I reinstall?

2. Let's say in the future I upgrade to 6.3 and it fails- Do I risk any data loss? i.e. Would performing a rollback on the snapshot be sufficient?

hi, i need some help

 

i have pulled my harddisks from a hardware 2bay synology and set up a ESXI xpenology.

 

followed all instructions and it shows me up "look like you move from a older synology to a ds3615xs" ...

 

so i choose migrate and timer runs.. wait 10 minute....

 

after 10 minutes nothing happens.. with find.synology.com nor the assistant my vm sysnology is found after the migration...

 

so i activated serial and post this now:

Maybe this is some kind out of the topic but I lost some hours trying to make an ESXi 6.7 VM and when it's instaling the DSM is crashing on "Can't Format the Disk (35)" error.

This happens because the XPEnology were booting up via Baremetal options. So if you want a VMWare VM you must comment out the "bare-metal" lines in grug.conf as said on the tutorial here. After that done, you end up with only one boot option and all goes nice. Hope this helps anyone.

Good afternoon. Please tell me why during installation I constantly get an error of 13

Скрытый текст

error13.JPG

? I try to install DSM 6.2.2 (tried with DSM_DS3615xs_23739.pat / DSM_DS3615xs_24922.pat) on ESXI 6.0. I searched in a subject and in the Internet. Everywhere they write that this is due to the incorrectly set VID and PID. But the topic header does not indicate a change in VID and PID, and in theory should they be set in the VMDK file? I upload it to ESXI without changes. But after starting the virtual machine, its contents are constantly changing! Namely, the CID and db.longContentID are changing. What am I doing wrong ?

 

P.S That's what I see in changed vmdk:

@luchuma

Thank's for the answer. 🙂

 

I checked my "pat" file md5. Redownloaded it again from server. As I see, it's md5 are equal.

md5: 57748c2d9bed639403fca13de64eba03 *DSM_DS3615xs_23739.pat

 

And as I see on server there is md5 for this file - https://archive.synology.com/download/DSM/release/6.2/23739/DSM_DS3615xs_23739.pat.md5

So my file "pat" file looks correct.

 

Please, can You inform me what vm config should I show ? I have several files:

I attached XPEnology.vmx. If other files are required, please inform me.

Hi all...I have an old xpenology system running DSM 5.2-5967 on a standalone esxi host.  I've read through this thread and the tutorial on migrating from 5.2 to 6.1, but I'm so very confused on how to actually perform a migration on esxi.  I have data and modules I'd like to preserve if at all possible, so I don't want to make a new VM and start from scratch.

 

Is it possible to migrate?  Sorry for the noob question!

Hi, i used the tutorial and set the virtual machine but i cannot find the virtual machine over network and also in ESX is set the network to E1000e but there is no network information.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thank you

 

Hmm ... My ESXI doesn't show ip either, but the virtual machine is working nonetheless. I found ip by looking into the web interface of the router.
