6.1.7 to 6.2 migration partially successful


Recommended Posts

I'm running ESXi 6.7 and did a migration from DS3615 6.1.7 and bootloader v1.02 to DS3615 6.2-23739 and bootloader v1.03. The migration seemed to be successful but, when I logged in, the network setting page in the GUI did not have a gateway configured (amongst other problems) and won't let me manually correct it.

 

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a fix other than trying to go back to 6.1.7?

 

I have a backup but it is on a slower server and I'd prefer to get his one fixed!

 

Thanks.

HI @unmesh, do you have a step by step description on what you did?

I also want to update my DS3615 to DSM 62 but i'm still not able to keep all my data

 

Thanks

Be aware that it was not completely successful for me!

 

I downloaded the V1.03 bootloader and edited grub.cfg to put in my serial number and MAC address. I shutdown the DSM 6.1.7 VM and pointed the virtual HD to the new bootloader. I also changed the virtual NIC to e1000e.

 

I then booted the VM and picked the ESXi entry from the bootloader menu. I opened a web browser to the DSM's IP address and did a manual update to the DS3615 6.2-23739 pat file, let it reboot and then logged in to the DSM GUI.

 

That is when I noticed that several of the Control Panel screens were messed up and went back to 6.1.7
