HP ProLiant MicroServer N36L _DS3615xs

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I am currently running on an old  HP ProLiant MicroServer N36L (INTEL Core i3-4130 4GB Ram) as DS3615xs with 

DSM 6.0.2-8451 Xpenology and I am very happy . Thank you all for the support all these years.  I have a few questions thought if you can help me out.


1.  Can I Update through Control  Panel - DSM Update - Download  to "DSM 6.0.3-8754 is available for download" or I will ruin my system and need a custom update to download ?

     Meaning Can I Install updates from Control Panel at any time with no risk or updates has to be custom ?

2. When  I install a custom loader from USB can I download the original PAT File from Synology based on my DS3615xs model? or it has to be a custom PAT as well ?

3.  I found some info non related to my HP Microserver but a newer Gen8 version and I would Like to ask if I can proceed with the following steps and files to upgrade (migrate)  from DSM 6.0.2-8451 to the new DSM 6.2.2 ?

      a.  Download - create a usb with  boot loader v1.03b for DS3615xs (Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3615xs)

      b.  Backup the current configuration (.dss) file  of my server ...  just in case.

      c. Restart server with the new usb with  (Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3615xs)

      d. Search and find My server with Synology Assistant and Migrate to preserve my Files.

      e. Migrate and then click to manually install  the PAT file from https://archive.synology.com/download/DSM/release/6.2/23739/ or I Can download from synolgy 6.2.2 "DSM is the                 operating system of DS3615xs. The update includes the latest features and enhancements." ? PAT File has to be custom or just the custom usb loader ?

     f. Update from control Panel as I ask before? or custom upgrade file from https://archive.synology.com/download/DSM/criticalupdate/update_pack/23739-2/synology_bromolow_3615xs.pat


My main reason to upgrade is moments that provided in DSM 6.2 and above and cloud station.  I want to stop using One drive (one note) and Google drive (photos) as I reached their max and now I have to pay + my privacy. I want to switch to Synology Note station, Synology office and momets.  What do you think? 

Thank you all for the help  in advance.

You need an Intel-NIC such as the HP NC360T to get DSM 6.2 working on your N36L. The internal NIC will not be recognized and has to be disabled in bios.

Thank you I already have an Ethernet Gigabit adapter that works with 6.0 . I will post and if not compatible I will buy one. You think the rest of the steps I posted are correct ?
