DSM 6.1.x Loader

Recommended Posts

Okay update on the troubles I'm having. Installed an Intel Dual Port 1G PCIe card into the server boots perfectly and got all configured etc... including SFP+ modules.

ran dmesg found that the Broadcom driver wasn't loading so I downloaded the Broadcom firmware

bnx2/bnx2-mips-09-6.2.1b.fw and copied the file into the /lib/firmware... directory where the other Broadcom drivers are.

Rebooted presto, new NICs show up in my Network Interfaces...

 

New issue when taking out the Intel Dual Port 1G PCIe card the server now doesn't boot and I can't access the DSM via port 5000, I can ping the assigned IP addresses via another machine.

 

I'm open to suggestions, I have 2 servers with these Broadcom NICs and only one Intel Dual Port Card (I don't need 2) I already have enough networking on these boxes each with 2x SFP+ 10G 2x RJ-45 1G, I'm really looking to be able to boot and sustain from only the Broadcom NICs

 

When you booted with the Intel PCIe in it, did the NAS see the Broadcom NICs?

Also, try to SSH in, maybe that'll give some information. A serial console would also help.

 

 

Some good news, my Intel Dual port 10G RJ45 cards came today, added in, took out the 1G addin card, booted first time 0 issues so far.

 

Now time to get a 10G switch...

anyone managed to use STR (suspend to RAM)?

Would be quite usefull for me, nowhere found any info how to get it working...

What is it for?

It is one of the Power saving modes a PC Can enter :

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance ... ce#GSTATES

 

STR would be quite fast to Wake up (2-3 seconds)...

I am sure you know Power saving states from other OS.

 

Does original Synology support STR or Std?

i've installed the DSM 6.0 based on tutorial. I used force instalall. After using Synology assitant installing DSM on my PC, the PC restarted but then when i connected to the PC through its IP, it still asked me to install again. I reinstalled once more time and the situation was the same as before! I don't know how to fix it! Any suggestion? Thanks !

EDIT: i forgot to edit the Mac address. Now it boots ok! Thanks!

sata0 is the HDD, sata1 is the ODD, sata2 and sata3 do not show up and most probably are empty headers as you said. sata4 is the esata port.

Yes I am aware those messages are events and not errors, yet kernel loading seems to stop and no further output is seen on the consol.

My question actually lies on why this is happening.

 

Doesn't the ATA port numbering in software begin at 1, while it begins at 0 on the board? Though it is possible that the controller provides 4 ports, and a separate controller is used for eSATA.

 

I doubt that those messages are related to the reason why it won't boot further. Can you provide full logs from start?

 

The ata denomination is really not the issue here.

 

As I have already said, there is nothing else in the consol output, else I would have provided it. Those are the only two lines that appear once the kernel start decompressing. Nothing else shows. I've left it for 10 min see if anything else would show, but nothing there.

Recalling a bug I encountered a while back with a certain motherboard, try resetting the BIOS to defaults and don't change anything except ensuring ahci is active. If that still doesn't work, remove the cd drive entirely or disable in BIOS if that option is available.

I had a similar bug with my mobo (MSI B250I PRO), but it wasn't about booting. It booted, but network was not accessible.

Hello Everyone,

 

i currently have a xpenology DSM 5.2 setup. I would like to upgrade the motherboard/cpu/ram in the system. Given that all drivers are included in xpenology, could i simply swap out those components in my system and plug the hdds in the same sata port sequence, without the system messing up or anything? By the way for now i would be keeping the same versoin of xpenology/dsm etc... not touching that for the moment. I just want to upgrade the hardware for now.

Hi

DS3615xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02-alpha-TEST has fixed my on board Ethernet issue but the LSI 9207-8i not detected.

Is LSI 9207-8I supported yet?

 

I am using esxi 6 because the 6.5 don't let me put my usb Ethernet as management interface permanently.

Hi, Booted a vm on ESXi 6.0 and updated to the latest (DSM 6.1-15047 Update 2).

Managed to create a disk (Virtual Only).

Was only planning on using it for a downloading client with the SynoCommunity Packages but the packaged arent compiled yet for the new DS3617xs

But looks good other than the packages issue.

Will shut it down for now untill the packages are available. Also ive not put any MAC addresses in the file and still works fine

The SynoCommunity packages do not work on 6.x, it is not an issue with the DS3617xs.

 

What software do you need? Most probably you'll be able to run the same via Docker (which should be the preferred method any way).

Do you have the download link for V1.02-alpha-TEST ?

I had read that the 6.x loader uses synology model that didn't support SHR raid. Is that still true? If I do a new install using xpe 6.0.2 update 7. Would I be able to use SHR .

 

Thanks

Synology is discontinuing SHR in favor of regular RAID arrays. Newer models and pretty much 6.x on Intel-based HW removes the option to create an SHR array, and offers regular RAID instead. However, existing SHR arrays will still work.

Syno Community works fine on dsm 6.x with the DS3615xs.

The packages i use are sabnzbd, couch potato, sonarr and the respected dependencies.

I tried using docker n couldnt get it to work. Also i read somewhere that the docker wont be working for the near future on DX3617xs. But could try it on

A good majority of the SynoCommunity packages won't work unless you install them on 5.2, and upgrade to 6.0. The reason is that SynoCommunity packages create specific users and groups, a feature that was removed in 6.0 - not entirely removed, but modified in a way that these packages need serious retouching to get them to work again. Further info on the issue here

Docker is quite simple to get working. Most of the packages you seem to be using are already available in the LinuxServer.io packages, ready to deploy. Think of each Docker container as an app running in its own chroot. If you need some help, I can give some pointers in private (since this thread is about the loader, not Docker or packages).

 

And the latter part is pure bullshit. Synology implemented Docker for a single reason - it's an industry-leading technology of containerizing stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if they replaced their apps with containers in the future.

look for post early mar.

 

I solved my problem because I didn't plug in the sata cables to the LSI card. lol.

Really? I did not know this. SHR is one of the big selling points imo! Why they getting rid of it?

Recalling a bug I encountered a while back with a certain motherboard, try resetting the BIOS to defaults and don't change anything except ensuring ahci is active. If that still doesn't work, remove the cd drive entirely or disable in BIOS if that option is available.

 

I had a similar bug with my mobo (MSI B250I PRO), but it wasn't about booting. It booted, but network was not accessible.

 

I had already tried a BIOS reset and that didn't change anything. I removed the ODD but still see those two lines and then nothing. I'm guessing the loader is not liking some of the hardware in that machine.

I doubt it's the loader, it sounds more like a kernel panic. There's no ramoops after reboot, right?

Yes by loader I meant the kernel since it hangs while the kernel is loading. No ramoops. Only thing I can see is the usb/serial connector LED that stays on continuously instead of blinking when there is data passing in an out. It definitely hangs there.

That's a though nut to crack, especially without logs, or access to files.

 

Can you boot 5.2 on it, and see if it works?
