Hello,

 

I updated with my NICs as stated above, and I confirm, that is does not work!

Just to be sure: I disabled the internal NIC and I went to the grub command line adjusting the mac1 to one of my intel MAC addresses. (Not sure it it is the first or the second NIC of the card)

Is there something, I have overseen, but I should have done?

So is it sure now, that my NIC is not compatible?

Nevermind, it is only a backup server, I have time to fix it.

Regards, Tomte

Hello,

 

I inserted now a NC360T NIC and adjusted the MAC1 and MAC2 entries, however, it does still not boot.

Anything else I can do? Or how do I initiate a reinstall without loosing my data? Do I have to regenerate the stick from scratch?

@Tomte Are you saying your NAS is not booting?  How far in the startup/boot sequence do you get before it stops?

You might have done something wrong while editing your USB stick, try to start over again, either with a different stick, or by formating and rewriting your old.

Hello,

now this is very strange:

I got as far as the spash screen "Happy Hacking" ....

Nothing happended.

Now, I generated a new stick, startet again: Now the HP showed up in the Synology Assistant with status "repairabel" (in German).

I chose this, but it did not succeed.

Selecting "Reinstall" in GRUB also did not help.

So I regenerated the USB stick once again and removed all drives and simply chose the upper option.

Waited until it showed up in "find.synology.com", put all drives back in place and reinstalled DSM 6.2.

Fine so far, all worked fine.

Then I activated SSH, checked the driver - e1000e, ok.

Finally, I selcted in the WebGUI to update to 6.2.1 - and it never appeared again.

Booting simply ends with "Happy Hacking" and this is it. No futher HDD activities.

Have I missed something? I adjusted mac1,mac2, pid, vid, serial, ...

Should I have updated to 6.2.1 manually by .pat file?

 

Regards, Tomte

PS: Is there an easy way to capture/read the serial output? Like using an USB serial adapter? Would this work?

Hello,

 

stupid me, I found my problem. I used the DS3617xs image. With this, 6.2.1 is not working.

Now I tried DS3615xs - works like a charm!😁

 

This is the NIC I bought:

(in case somebody is searching for a suitable NIC)

 

Thanks to everybody who tried to help me!

 

Regards, Tomte
