virtual machine manager linux kernel panic

Recommended Posts

i'm running 6.2 (baremetal) on the dell T30.

 

i've installed virtual machine manager (vmm) and am able to create the VM.

but whenever i boot up and try in run/install linux, keep getting "kernel panic" and "synching errors".

same errors whether it's ubuntu or debian or mint.

 

i've no issues running windows 10 pro though.

 

any ideas?  much appreciated.

Yeah I'm getting the exact same thing, Windows also gives me a "kmode exception not handled" BSOD. It seems like some sort of Synology kernel incompatibility. Though the odd thing is the beta didn't have this problem when I was first testing it out on my bare-metal NAS.

Update: After enabling Core 2 Duo CPU compatibility for the VM (only available with the pro version of VMM) it works perfectly. Unfortunately this isn't an option for most people (me included) as it requires a valid S/N and MAC combo to obtain a trial and or purchase a VMM pro license for $130.

 

Maybe there's some way to force this instruction set in the hyper-visor without a license?

just an update ...

 

i'd forgotten to mention the above T30 issue was under DS3617sx.

once i'd upgraded (sidegraded?) to DS918+, no issue running linux via VMM.

 

weird?

Does changing model require a re-import of your data? It's possible VMM is fine tuned for the CPUs it's designed for. This is likely why people running as a DS3615xs and DS3617xs have no issues with VMM on enterprise Xeon hardware (as far as I know).

nope ... on the migration/update page to DS918+, i  chose to keep my existing data & configs when asked.

Currently using the DS918+ loader (was previously using the DS3615xs on my i3 baremetal) and so far it's a mixed bag. Windows 10 1809 installs fine, whereas Ubuntu and Xubuntu boot but won't install. I can see and format the disks without a problem, but as soon as I get to the disk selection step of the installer, the setup window goes into an infinite loading screen. It doesn't matter if I switch the disk mode from VirtIO to SATA or IDE the result is the same.

CentOS has it the worst, using the minimal installation ISO I get a kernel panic and there is no way around it that I was able to see.

 

The official compatibility list is quite out of date, I did try a certified build of CentOS but get the same problem. VMM might be putting some incompatible instruction in the Qemu VM config or maybe it's just really broken (which I find hard to believe). I'm lead to believe that this is the case as in my previous post I mentioned that enabling CPU compatibility mode with VMM Pro resolved the issue whilst on my DS3615xs loader (in which VMM was even more broken than it is on the loader I'm currently using ;) )

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but would rather not make a new one for something others are also experiencing

Same story... Can run all sorts of windows VM's but not a single Linux VM under the current load. I get to the disk selection portion then it panics/loops..

VT-D is on/everything turned on in bios that should be on.

i7-4770K. 32gb Ram, 20TB storage Raid 5, 1tb SSD storage, 2x256 SSD Cache drivers, 1.04b loader. Newest DSM as a 918+... Using a Valid MAC and Serial from a damage 918 box.

I don't run Syno VMM anymore but when I was playing around with it, I found that I had to install the exact supported releases and versions to avoid kernel panics.

HI 

 

I have the same problem, kernel panic at boot or I can see and format the disks without a problem, but as soon as I get to the disk selection step of the installer, the setup window goes into an infinite loading screen..

Loader 1.04b and DS918+

 

Have you found the solution ?

 

Thanks !
