DSM 6.0 Beta out

Recommended Posts

so you mean 6.0 beta works with current xpenology bootloader aside from no mounting volumes? 8)

 

Edit: i am getting up to the point where you create a disk, but it says that "the connection failed, check your network connection" (roughly translated)

ESX 5.5U2

The DSM 6.0 Beta is out!

 

https://www.synology.com/nl-nl/dsm/6.0beta/ReleaseNote

 

Testing it right now on Hyper-V

 

Tried to update from 5.2 with latest XPenoboot, it says update ok but can`t acces the DSM page.

 

Now i tried a Clean install en now it works, but volumes are unmounted.

 

Yes, but only with a clean install! Not with an upgrade, after that the DSM webpage is not reachable!

 

@ error, that`s right, i got the same faultcode.

I wish they would inplment SnapRAID. I like the idea to do RAID5, but it's pointless to keep all the hard drives spinning. SnapRAID is great. each hard drive spin up as needed, and all are spinning during back up.

If you can't create a volume w/o it dismounting, it's not working properly.

 

yes, useless tutorial, disks not working.

 

For me it's working when unmounting disks from CL or after an upgrade from DSM 5.2 where volumes were already created.

Upgrade from 5.2 doesn't seem to work. Tried various upgrade paths. Any chance of info on how you did that? :smile:

my steps:

1. create the vm with the XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5592.2.vmdk and installed dsm 6

2 the vm doesn't reboot just turn it of and copy the original XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5592.2.vmdk into the vm folder

3. the vm already started with dsm 6.

4.volume creation doesn't work at the moment

 

I'll try to install first dsm 5.2, create a volume and upgrade the vm

Any news?

 

How do I set up a volume? Booting works fine, now the rest.

/var/log/messages keeps whining about not seeing SMART values.

don't waste your time. YOU CAN NOT USE IT... unless you just want to play around w/o any volumes. It has been this way for a long time after each new update, dismounted volumes. There most likely won't be any progress, because the team the releases xpenology doesn't release anything for betas... and who knows if they are even together, or will work on any future releases.

Well said Diverge, there really is no rush as DSM 6 will be in Beta for at least 6 months.

Got it's own Virtual Machine thingy in there. Oooo does that mean we can ditch ESXi?

 

It might be super unstable on Xpenology, so I wouldn't trust it to handle my VMs. Also, now everytime you want to reboot xpenology, you will also shutdown your vms; which will happen more often than with ESXI box.

I personally hated ESXi. I don't know if I missed something glaringly obvious but my disk performance was dreadful. I couldn't get it to accept a USB 3 controller or RAID card. Not to mention the loss of SMART reading.

 

Just having the ability to run a win7/8/10 machine for Google Play Music will keep me all kinds of happy. Awesome nuts.
