[SOLVED] Installing XPEnology in VirtualBox

Recommended Posts

For some reason my XPEnology VM keeps on turning off by itself. It doesn't give the Synology Assistant enough time to find it and install.

 

Does anyone know why this happens?

 

Cheers,

Alex

I can connect via its IP but it does not see it via the assistant.

 

its is possible to set the virtual box's network IP statically without having to bridge?

Managed to get it working , stupid windows firewall lol

 

 

Has anyone got it working using a static IP address for the bridge connection.

IE i need to have my host PC with a static IP but then have the virtual machine static also?

And the synology static aswell.

got past that error now , but cant get the synology assistant to find it.

 

How did you solve it?

 

change your VM type to Debian 64bit. The synology software doesnt support 32bit O/S's.

How exactly does that work ?

Where do you get the packages from?

Is installation done with ipkg ?

I successfully have Synology up and running on my VirtualBox. I've used XPEnology_DS3612xs_2668 for the installation.

Now I am trying to upgrade to DS3612xs_3202-Repack and is not happening.

How do I supposed to do the upgrade?

 

Currently I have the IDE mounted with synoboot.vdi and a SATA Controller with HDD.vdi.

What do I need to change to be able to upgrade to 3202?

 

Any help would be great.

Thanks

 

Zeek

You need a new synoboot.vdi (or .vmdk) with current version to boot. It replaces the one that you use now.

After you boot your virtual machine with it, you can use assistant and update DSM (pat) that matches your synoboot. Your HDD will be updated to new version of DSM.

Well, I've tried the following file DS3612xs_3202-Repack.vdi, I replaced it by removing synoboot.vdi and when I boot I get the following message:

 

GRUB Loading stage1.5.

 

GRUB loading, please wait...

Error 22

 

FYI: I created DS3612xs_3202-Repack.vdi with VirtualBox command line from DS3612xs_3202-Repack.img

VboxManage convertfromraw DS3612xs_3202-Repack.img DS3612xs_3202-Repack.vdi

Shutdown virtual machine and copy .vdi (it actualy DS3612xs_3202-Repack.vmdk) file again. It may got overwritten and corrupt by DSM installation.

Make sure that file is still attached to IDE.
