Query re new bare metal X64 instal to N54L using 5.1-5022

Recommended Posts

Newbie Alert! OK, so I have a brand new N54L and two 4TB WD Red NAS drives on way.

 

Looking over posts did not see this query answered. I want to start my NAS build with 5.1-5022. XPEnology.nl site tutorial says to download 5.1-5022 DSM main boot IMG file and then later upgrade to 5022.3. All clear so far.

1/. I note it says DSM file based on Synology XSDS3615xs - a 12 bay Synology model rather than a Synology 4 bay model - is this correct - shouldn't they match bay numbers?

2/. It also states to 'match' DSM file with Synology assistant file but version linked to on NL site is 5.0-4448 - is this still OK to use? When I go to Synology site direct the version of Synology Assistant listed for XSDS3615xs is 5.2-5005. Which should I use?

Get this file instead to create your USB bootloader.https://www.dropbox.com/sh/5xp052gr9o04 ... 3.img?dl=0

2/. It also states to 'match' DSM file with Synology assistant file but version linked to on NL site is 5.0-4448 - is this still OK to use? When I go to Synology site direct the version of Synology Assistant listed for XSDS3615xs is 5.2-5005. Which should I use?Synology Assistant 5.2-5005 is OK. Its the same programm for all the Synology units. Skip the downloading .pat file and via web interface allow to download the latest DSM directly from Synology.
