[SOLVED] How to change MAC DS3612xs - DSM 4.2 build


Recommended Posts

Hi i changed the mac and Serial by editing the file that resides on the USB...

 

File is located under boot\grub\grub.conf

 

this is what mine looks like

 

#serial --unit=0 --speed=115200

#terminal serial

default 1

timeout 4

hiddenmenu

fallback 0

 

title SYNOLOGY_1

root (hd0,0)

hw_model

kernel /zImage root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=5 netif_num=1 syno_hw_version=RS3612xs

initrd /rd.gz

 

title SYNOLOGY_2

root (hd0,1)

# cksum /grub_cksum.syno

# vender /vender

# hw_model

kernel /zImage root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=5 netif_num=1 syno_hw_version=RS3612xs mac1=00113205V7U8 sn=B7J4N00000

initrd /rd.gz

 

 

 

All you need to do is add the MAC and Serial number.. please note the mac address format.. 00-11-32-05-C8-7B will not work.

 

to edit the file on windows i used notepad++ which is free to download.

The easiest way to edit the MAC address & Serial No is to install Ext2Fsd on a Windows PC, then just insert the USB stick that has had the Synology DS3612xs - DSM 4.2 build 3202 img file written to it. It will then appear as just another drive.

This didn't work for me, either changing it in the 'vender' file or changing the menu.lst / grub.conf. My HP N40L ignores whatever I put in for some reason.

Hi,

 

I use one HP N54L and it works! Please, revise that you COMMENT the three lines: chsum, vender and hw_model. And boot using SYNOLOGY_2 config, not fallback (SYNOLOGY_1).

 

FYI, I use the release DSM 4.2 3211 x64

 

:grin:

Hi, boot a Linux LiveCD using some free virtualization hypervisor (VMware Player or VirtualBox) and connect the USB stick to the virtual machine. You can edit the grub.conf file without any problem!
