Hi Mentat,

 

You need to reboot and choose the upgrade line in the bootmenu.

Change the version number to 5.0-4528

 

This is no patch, like all 4493-UPDATEX, but an upgrade.

 

So basically:

 

1. Reboot xpenology

2. in menu chose install/upgrade

3. click tab

4. change to upgrade=5.0-4528

 

Or option 2:

 

Flash the USB drive with the boot image from http://www.xpenology.nl/boot-images/. For baremetal: http://www.xpenology.nl/xpenology-downloads/?myvar=1456

 

1. Boot xpenology

2. in menu chose install/upgrade

 

From a laptop start the synology assistant and upgrade to 4528.

 

Be sure to select keep files and settings. :cool:

Only thing that was not working and needed a reinstall was the Open-VM-Tools.

After removing it, reboot, reinstall, reboot everything was fine again!

I've only recently installed ESXi and can still boot my machines into bare-metal DSM.

 

What functionality would I get by installing Open-VM-Tools? Where would I find instructions to install them?

 

Thanks.

You can download Open-Vm-Tools (v5) from: http://www.gnoboot.me/

Install them via Package Manager in DSM.

Once installed you can do a clean shutdown or restart of your XPenology from within ESXI vSphere Client.

do you have the pat file?

 

thanks

____________________________

 

found it from the first few posts of this main thread. so to sum up how to upgrade or to be up to date do the following.

 

download the pat file and head to that xpenology.nl link posted and download img for running hardware.

 

do the usual burn mount deal then pop it into your nas and pray for dear life your data isnt going down the toilet.

 

pray some more and several reboots and praying you should have 4528

Has anyone upgraded with Samsung drives of the model type- HD204UI? If so, what happens?

 

Answering my own question:

 

Installed DSM4-3 3810 on test rig with only 1 HDD Samsung HD204UI.

Installed a couple of packages, Antivirus and Download Station

Added a user

Let install complete.

Insert new USB drive and reboot

Select install/upgrade from menu.

Select PAT file d/loaded previously

Installation completed without issue

Logon to DSM with Admin

attempt to open Storage Manager - get error saying no privilege and kicks me straight out to Logon Screen

Log back in with Admin

select control panel and straight to update to patch 1

install patch and reboot

Logon with Admin

Open Storage Manager - no issue

Check packages

Check userid

All is right with DSM

so this is what happens when you dont edit the files... so very important step you MUST edit the files on the USB KEY prior to inserting to NAS otherwise this is what happens. I have no vga out to see whats going on but I know what the problem is luckily / hopefully. going to edit the lck files and hope this error doesnt come up again.

 

ok im totally lost..

I've managed to upgrade to this version directly from 5.0 4418 and everything seems to be working really well. My built in WiFi adapter now works too which didn't before. The built in bluetooth adapter still doesn't work though.

 

EDIT: This was using the 5.0.3.2 boot image.

Congrats. I don't have such luck tho. The built in Wifi on my GIGABYTE GA-H97N-WIFI Motherboard is still not working. Keep asking me to insert a USB Wi-Fi adapter.
