Virtualbox - DSM 6.2 DS3615Xs - config

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Dsm 6.2 (DS3615XS) WORK to Virtualbox.
I managed to run dsm 6.2 (ds3615) on Virtualbox, be careful that version 6.2.1 does not work). It will be necessary to download the good spk on the syno download center.

 

You must first configure grub (the mac address must match the one entered in the vm), then convert the .img file to .vdi (VBoxManage convertfromraw --format VDI "source file path" "target file path" ).

 

In the settings of the VM, you have to use as storage manager: SATA (override all others). In first pausition put the IMG file converted to VDI, then all other virtual disks.

In the system settings of the machine (tab motherboard), choose the number of processor and memory allocated (2 processors for me and 2048MB of RAM) and especially used chipset ICH9 (otherwise does not start correctly).

 

In the network card part, enable card, bridge access, advanced settings, choice of Intel PRO / 1000MT Desktop card.
Be careful to fill in the correct mac (same as grub).

 

Usb: default (use usb 1.1)

 

Serial port: enabled (COM1 - disconnected)

 

When starting the machine, choose baremetal option.

 

Good fun :-)

Hi. Same issue as Olivier. I used to be able to run DSM 6.1. But here, I am stuck on the network configuration. No idea what means "configure grub". If I boot the VM and run the Synology Assistant, this one does not find the VM.

 

NB.: VirtualBox is running on my Windows PC! Isn't grub file only for Linux ?

OK, I got it, reading  this

You MUST edit this IMG file with OSFMount image mounter (Win, free). If you don't have Windows, download and install Windows 10 into VM on ESXI. You can use evaluation version for free.You need to edit IMG file to set the correct Serial Number (SN) and MAC address.

SN gives your a Synology a unique identity, and allows you to create an account with Synology, so that you can access your Synology drive over internet. It seems you are well-versed in porting. You can ignore SN. You are right, you will have better speeds and privacy with your own VPN.

MAC allows you to find synology drive on your own network, when you type http://http://find.synology.com/ in your browser. You can manually set MAC address (any address really), but you must insure you specify the same address in your VM setting under "Network Setting". If your http://http://find.synology.com doesn not find synology, this is number one reason why this happens. 

Don't worry about PID and VID.

After you edit this file save the changes.
