Change serial number + MAC address on VirtualBox DSM 5.2

Recommended Posts

Hi !

 

I am creating this topic because I can't get out of my issue. I cannot change the MAC address nor the serial number.

I run Xpenology on VirtualBox

I followed the tutorial to have a valid Serial number an mac address

Once I got those informations, I tried to follow this tutorial http://xpenology.me/how-to-change-and-flash-mac/ but I don't understand. Once I'm on the Ms-DOS I do not know what to do and plus the keyboard is in english when I use an AZERTY keyboard.

 

if possible, could you explain me how to change the serial number + the mac address of the xpenology

 

I am not an expert so if you could detail step by step :wink: Thanks !

* Generate your serial, change MAC address by follow this post viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3059

 

Step by step guidelines: Change serial number for XPEnology 5.0+

You can easy change serial number by edit file *.cfg in your boot disk/file.

 

First step: Use calculator by kmx23: http://1drv.ms/1Fz451J for generate your unique serial.

 

I. For ISO boot file

1. Install WinISO (http://www.winiso.com/products/standard.html).

2. Open XPE ISO boot file (eg. "XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5565.2.iso") with WinISO.

3. Select file "isolinux.cfg" => right click => Extract => Choose your temporary folder (eg. Desktop).

4. Open "isolinux.cfg" with Notepad.

5. Edit serial by replace string after "sn=", all must be same. Save file.

6. Select and drop "isolinux.cfg" file from temporary folder into WinISO windows => Choice Overwrite => Save and quit WinISO.

Save and open the excel file on your pc, select the model # DS3615xs....hit F9 to generate random serial nos..Mac # will be associated with that serial # as well.
