Tutorial: Install DSM 6.2 on ESXi 6.7

Recommended Posts

Any news on getting VMXNET3 working on 6.2.2 and above?

 

I want to upgrade, but don't want to lose 10G networking, and my switches don't have enough ports for me to do an additional passthrough card :(

Dp you have any news ? :)

i love your work

Couldn't get 1 to work, the others are certainly doable (can already do a few bits of them from some test scripts). The main problem is time.

Thanks mate, I just tried it, and it starts up just fine!

 

One thing: how to change the mac1? As I already have one DSM running with 011322CA785.

Works Perfectly   

 

I installed DS3617  on VMware ESXi  after instal conform the above guide.  

 

After that I increased CPU to 4   and memory to 16gb  without problems.

 

After that I also tried to upgrade to 6.2.2-24922 Update 2  Also without problems!

 

Just a happy user :)

Hi!

 

For some reason the only file I see under the grub folder is an efi file. Can anyone help me with it?

That's not normal. Do a refresh of the window or try dismounting and mounting again. The difference I see with my OSFMount is that you have an "Emulation" column which I don't have. What version are you using?

Thank you for your reply. I'm using OSFMount V3.0.1004 with latest version of Windows 10 home.

This is already a fresh install of windows so I think another fresh install probably wouldn't help.

Has anyone had issues with creating snapshot of the xpenology VM while it is running?

 

I'm running ESXi 6.5u2 with the ds3615 boot loader.

 

From the hostd.log file:

Thanks.

I don’t think so, but if your struggling you could try this:

This resolved some snapshot issues for me in the past.

Unless you have snapshot-aware storage (i.e. not local disk) you should shut down your VM prior to a snapshot to ensure its integrity.

I didn't asked you to re-install Windows, I asked you to refresh your window (explorer window).

 

Although I don't think the OSFMount version is the issue here, you can try with an earlier version of OSFMount, say, v1.5 or v2.0. I tried with the version your are using (v3.0) and I didn't have any problem. You should re-download the loader for good measures as well.

Just managed to get this working in VMWare Workstation 12 following the first post. I had to change my NIC from e1000 to e1000e, but after that it worked fine. I'm on the latest release now.

 

What's the best way to get my existing 6.1 install on the 6.2.2 version? Can I just use the new loader (1.02b now, and 1.03b in test VM) and change the NIC and then update the DSM version? Or should I migrate to the new VM?
