DSM 6.x Proxmox Backup Template

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi Everyone!

 

I'm sorry for creating this thread but after reading some topics I've found that somebody has any troubles with installing XPenology on Proxmox.

This also concerns me - I have a trouble with 6.2 on my Microserver Gen 8 with Proxmox on it - no network devices.

 

So, after some attempts I have a success with 6.2 DSM with 3615xs and 3617xs only with 6.2_23739 with manual Installation.

After fresh install I make a full backup, so this can be used as template.

There are 6.1 and 6.2 of DSM version. 

 

So, You just need to copy this backup to Your Backup Directory in Proxmox and Restore it.

3615xs and 3617xs has successfully tested on HP MicroServer Gen 8 / Proxmox 5.3.5 | 5.3.6!

DS918 was successfully installed on SuperMicro SYS-1029P-WT with Intel Xeon Silver 4110. I've decided to publish it to for everybody too.

There are some several important points:

  1. TWO Network Interfaces. First NIC is disabled. It has been done because for DSM first device must be with suitable MAC which is fixed in Grub. If You need multiple instance of DSM (as me) - it's costly to mofidy everytime Grub. So Second NIC uses any MAC address from Proxmox.
  2. TWO Disk Drives. Firsk disk - is bootable disk made by Jun! Don't try to use is as Storage. (maybe it's painfully, I haven't checked). Second Drive - it's a System Drive where was DSM has already installed. 
    1. Second drive capacity - 6 GB! For me it's suitable - I use free capacity 1.3 GB only for Software and another drive for everything. If You need more for System Drive - Just Resize Disk before first start/initialization. I have tested that there is no errors after resizing before first initialization.
  3. Boot Drive - Sata0.

I'm using Web-Gui for managing Proxmox. So storage would be suggested automatic.

There is information in Warning post that upgrading to 23824 with kernels 1.03b or below - no any custom network interfaces would be worked. 

Or just change to e1000e maybe usefull - there are feedbacks in 6.2x kernel thread. I have no success with that because I didn't find how emulate e1000e instead of e1000 in proxmox.

All your backups have 1.03?

For 3615xs 6.2 and 3617xs 6.2 - Yes.

For 6.1 - 1.02b

 

For 918 - 1.04b

Hey, I tried using your ds918 images on my PVE 5.3.5, there's nothing on serial (COM 0) and it doesn't show up on the network, I saw somebody mention that it now requires the E1000e network interface, but that's not yet been emulated under Proxmox.

No, it cannot be upgraded to 23824.

No, e1000e is not necessary. I have a success with ds918 and e1000 on Xeon Silver. 

 

The main requirement is CPU Haswell or newer.
