DS3617xs with SHR + manual update


Posted (edited)


I searched a lot about this topic on the forum but without success.
So I come to ask for help.
I am looking to update my version 6.1 to 6.2.3. However I am using the DS3617xs with SHR on 12 HDs. However to use SHR I had to activate it in the settings.
Can I do the manual update normally to 6.2.3?
Do I need to do any configuration backups before updating?
What exactly is the process to update in this case, if it were RAID it would be fine but SHR how to do?

Thanks in advance.

Even if you lose the SHR setting, that only affects the ability to build and manage the array.  It will still mount and you can go back in and add the setting if necessary. 


You cannot upgrade from the GUI.  You will have to update the loader to 1.03b, change boot mode to BIOS if not already, and then do a migration install.


Have backups.  It does work but there are a lot of ways for it to go wonky.

I was worried about breaking my data with the loss of the SHR configuration.

So flyride Can I update manually without fear.

And change the settings after reboot.


Thanks a lot!
