Changing motherboards question

Question

I am upgrading my mother board. My nas has been running emulating DS918. I have tested with the new motherboard and an extra hard drive and it looks like the new board works better emulating a 3617 and will update to most resent version. My question is migrating  to new 3617 os without a total redue. Is that possible.

The DS3617 loader can be painful compared to the 3615. But it should be possible to migrate from the 918+. Try a test install with a blank hdd on the new board (as described earlier). If everything works you can use your hdds from the 918 install and start a migration. A backup comes in handy before migrating 😉

Well I will test the 3615 then as I don’t necessarily need a 3617. Just afraid of losing data and at the moment I don’t have a back up drive large enough. I guess it would be prudent to get a large enough hard drive to back up before I even start but I will test it on a spare hard drive. As always thanks for the help
