Has anyone successfully installed Xpenology on one of these?

 

I have tried various loaders but the closets I have been is with 1.02b.

 

I am doing all the usual steps setting a serial, mac address and PID/VID.,

 

DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b - boots and loads the setup but tells me I have no disks installed

Ds3617xs 6.2 1.03b Loader - boots but doesn't show on the network

Ds3615xs 6.2 1.03b Loader - boots but doesn't show on the network

Ds918+ 6.2 1.04 Loader - boots but doesn't show on the network

Ds918+ 6.2 1.02a Loader - boots but doesn't show on the network

 

I am going to go back and try an older version to see if that is any good but if this doesn't work I may just go with FreeNAS. I usually run XPEnology on ESXI but I will only be using this for storage now so wanted to go bare metal.

 

 

DS3615xs 6.0.2 Jun's Mod V1.01 - I will try this next.

I suspect the problem is the software RAID controller (Marvell) is not supported in anything outside of Windows.

 

Windows doesn't even see the drives until you manually load the driver.

 

I don't think it is likely I will manager to get this device working on anything other than Windows.
