I am eager to try this upgrade for my off-site box. Would someone please tell me if I have the upgrade process correct?

 

-Download the latest "NB_x64_5024_DSM_50-4493_Xpenology_nl.iso" and block copy it over to a usb drive.

-Boot up the new drive and choose update option?

-Open web browser (or use Synology Assistant?) and upload the new 4493 firmware?

-Use clean install instead of upgrade

 

Am I close? My Xpenology box is one that went from Trantor's to Gnoboot's and now I'm excited to try Nanoboot.

Any issues with updating with 5.0.2.2 Nanoboot? I believe it is basically the same as 5.0.2.4 other than some drivers

 

Shoudn't be a problem.

 

I am assuming you are referring to leveraging the DSM upgrade function in the gui.

I have a question.

I am running Nanoboot-5.0.2.4 DSM 5.0-4482 X64 on my VM esxi and would like to upgrade to the latest 4493.

I have downloaded the new images Nanoboot 4493.

What are the steps to perform the upgrade without loosing all my config and files?

 

Thanks

One question for the one that have upgraded. I've used your image and could upgrade my N54L to the 4493 version. No data nor configuration lost. But if I open Synology Assistant again, I see my XPenology as "Not configured"! Is that appearing to you too? With older versions I can see my XPenology as "Ready". I can use it normally, access my apps, shares, etc.
