DSM 6.2.1 on Unraid VM

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

I finally got the VM working (Unraid forum) my question is to the installation on a virtual VM and the VID & PID

 

Information:

I am using the loader: synoboot-ds918_1.04b

And the DSM: DSM_DS918+_23824_(6.2.1).pat

I have updated the Mac & license generated

 

So after "find.synology.com" and the installation I keep getting the:

Since this is a virtual USB I dont have a VID & PID

Anyone else who have had this problem?

 

To other Unraid users the post for setting this up is located here: https://forums.unraid.net/topic/71316-xpenology-vm-any-one-running-this/

 

Best regards & a happy New year!

@IG-88 Thanks I needed to verify my settings and I can confirm it works with DS3615xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b.img 

I installed the DSM_DS3615xs_15047_6.1_15047 and updated inside DSM to DSM_DS3615xs_15284_6.1.7_15284.pat

 

But any attempt to use the new loader to get to 6.2 give above error every time...

I just tried with 918+ starting with DSM_DS918+_23739_6.2_23739.pat and got the again....

unraid seems to use qemu

if you google for qemu set vid pid you will find things like

https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-discuss/2015-07/msg00072.html

 

so you should be able to set the vid/pid to the values you already have in the grub.cfg or you can set anything you want and then set the same in grub.cfg

That's very interesting would have to read up on that

 

But at least for loaders before 6.2 it doesn't matter what VID and PID are set to, it just works

I don't know how to get the VID PID from a virtual USB in Unraid, in windows it easy.... :-)

 

I think it's something to do with the network "e1000e" or "e1000" tried both same result, also changed controller bus for vdisk and usb no difference

Something has changed in the new loader that require different settings?

Stupid me!

Seems you need to alter the time out to 10s in order to select the VM option in the loader....

I didn't know it just auto selected the first line before I opened the VNC!

 

Step-by-step guide working for me:
Create VM use CENTOS
First scroll down make sure it's set to br0
Either copy MAC and edit synoboot.img , or edit MAC / SN after generation use OSFmount

Quote

set time-out in synoboot.img to 10 secs


Copy edited synoboot.img to wanted location and set permissions to 7777
Host Passtrough (i'm on i3-6100)
Choose initial memory

Quote

Set machine as Q35-3.0


Use SeaBIOS
Primary vDisk Location eg /mnt/cache/xpenology/synoboot.img (use USB, manual)
2nd vDisk location either /dev/sd*** or create Manual eg /mnt/cache/xpenology/vdisk.img (use SATA, enough gb-space, qcow2)

deselect start VM after creation and click apply
edit created VM, right top corner to XML view
change br0 model type from VIRTIO to e1000e
change hdd bus sata controller from 0 to 1
update and back out to main VM page Unraid
start VM, right after start go to VNC remote

Since you changed timeout to 10 you will now be able to select the bottom line of the loader 

from 1st option Baremetal to 3rd option VMware

Hope you can help me... i have two Workstations with UNRAID (both 6.8.3) running.

my first rig loads the xpenology whithout any problems... (changes nic from virtio to e1000, nothing else)

Intel® Core™ i7-7700K, Gigabyte Z270-HD3P-CF

On a second rig, i dont get a network connection, it doesnt get an IP from DHCP and i cant find with SynoAssistant or find.synology.com

Intel® Xeon® CPU E3-1220 V2, D3034-B1

So, with same VM XML, same Loader (for DS918+) - v1.04b, 🤨

 

Even when i try to pass through a pcie nic, it doesnt see my LAN!?

 

Does anyone have a advice?

Also got problems getting recongnized in LAN. After I switched from DS918+ to DS3615 synoboot.img (v1.03b) it worked fine.
