unmesh Posted July 11, 2021 Share #1 Posted July 11, 2021 I have a couple of DSM instances running as ESXi VMs with RDMed SATA hard drives and have recently begun thinking about a recovery strategy should I lose my sole ESXi server but not my hard drives. (I do have backups too in the form of baremetal but those are kept offline). Is there a way to create USB drives from the synoboot vmdk files, edit grub.cfg with the new VID:PID and MAC address and boot a new supported system off this USB with the hard drives moved to this new system? Or is it sufficient to create a new USB stick with the same version of bootloader, edit grub.cfg with the new VID:PID and the MAC address from the other system, and "reinstall" the appropriate version of DSM using the old credentials to the hard drives (that already have DSM on them)? Would I have to be concerned about the order of the drives on the new SATA controller? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
