DSM 6.1.x Loader

Recommended Posts

@jun Since the upgrade in DSM to update 4 will not actually update kernel, then that means some critical security fixes mentioned in update 3/4 will not be applied even after the update, correct?

Can I just extract the zImage from the update 4 pat file, then replace the loader's zImage in synoboot1 partition, if it boots correctly, then I actually updated the kernel too? And the same logic applies to ramdisk, so I have to extract the rd file from pat, and repack it with community compiled kernel modules with driver supports?

 

I was asking myself the same thing and I have done some testing on my gen8 with jun's 1.0.1

I replaced only zImage and gen8 boot succesfully

Before

admin@gen8:/$ uname -a
Linux gen8 3.10.77 #8451 SMP Wed Aug 17 05:12:41 CST 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux synology_bromolow_3615xs

After

admin@gen8:~$ uname -a
Linux gen8 3.10.77 #8451 SMP Wed Nov 9 13:45:32 CST 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux synology_bromolow_3615xs

So I think the kernel has been updated... but no version change!? What does it mean?

After I tried to replace also ramdisk.lzma... the gen8 boot, stay up only few seconds (Synology Assistant show it) and then it shutdown...

 

[edit]

After rebooting the gen8 with correct ramdisk.lzma from jun's I can see this error on system events >> Abnormality detected on gen8. All volumes have been unmounted.

Maybe there is also something to be updated in ramdisk.lzma based on synology's new rd included in update 4 pat file. And we have to wait for jun's analysis and further update...

Refer to my previous question, I was able to install DSM 6 on my SSD drive. But the OVF file had a 50MB virtual Disk default setting (assume thats where the DSM install to) which also recognized by DSM itself as a HDD in Disk Manager (See attached photos). I am wondering if I have done anything step wrong to cause this issue? Don't seem to see other people experience the same. Any thing I can do to disable it from Disk Manager? Thanks.

I refer to my previous question posted here, I tried to diagnosis the cause of additional unwanted HDD in my DSM and realise the DSM is actually not booting from the USB drive I prepared (plugged inside MicroServer Gen8 internal USB port). Instead it boot from the 50MB vmdk file created (and saved on my SSD) when I deploy the OVF file. That also explains why the serial number and MAC number I edited in the grub and burnt to USB drive didn't change and show up when I set up the DSM when connected to find.synology.com. The plugged USB drive simply did nothing.

 

Problem is, I tried to remove the 50MB vmdk from virtual machine settings, added USB controller and USB xHCI controller to virtual machine settings. With the actual USB drive plugged in, I also added such USB drive to the virtual machine settings. However when I power the virtual machine on, I could not select it from the BIOS boot order, nor would it auto boot up.

 

So, sincerely, can someone running xpenology 6.0 under esxi on a HP Microserver Gen8 could share you thoughts and setup to help me out here??

 

Thanks so much

 

Hey people, while I am hoping to hear some experience sharing regarding the problem I faced, I have been researching and came across a statement saying "USB boot is not supported in ESXi". Can someone with related knowledge confirm that??

 

Thanks

ESXi does not support VM booting from USB. You can work around the issue with "plop boot manager". Basically, you use CDROM iso as a boot drive in your VM, which then points to the USB stick.

 

I am not sure it's worth the trouble. If you want to edit the config file on the VM, you can just do that, there's no need to use a USB image as a work around.

Dynax, great to hear your advice again! In fact I came across plop boot manager just now and got it running. Now my DSM is running as I wanted! Superb stuff that is.

 

Main reason to use this method is that without booting from USB, I get the 50MB HDD issue I mentioned previously, and that kind of bugged me not working like a bare bone would. Though not sure if I was the only one who faced that problem with Gen8+esxi as I have not seen anyone talks about it, maybe everyone use a Gen8 with bare bone.

 

The only niggle I still have is that when using plop boot manager I have to manually select "USB" from the menu, as any settings such as auto countdown, floppy disabling, etc would not saved (far as I understand it is due to the nature of "CD/DVDs" could not be edited and saved, hence any altered settings would not save for next boot). Would be great if there is a way to fix this small thing, perhaps edit the iso would do the trick. i will look into that anyway, but if anyone got some previous experience on this, I would greatly appreciate some words too.

 

Cheers

The kernel image and ramdisk form Jun's 1.0 bootloader is identical to original 8451 version of synology_bromolow_3615xs pat file. In one earlier post Jun wrote that Intel image is not modified, only AMD image.

 

In Update 4 they updated kernel but stayed on label 8451. Anyway the kernel image is binary different to the jun's 1.0 kernel image. In ramdisk they updated:

/etc/VERSION  (increased patch version number)
/usr/sbin/raidtool

 

[edit]

After rebooting the gen8 with correct ramdisk.lzma from jun's I can see this error on system events >> Abnormality detected on gen8. All volumes have been unmounted.

 

Hard to say what happened. For better debugging you need serial cable.

Has anybody successfully built a Nas based on new DSM 6.0.2 loader on VMWare Workstation?

Do I need an iso or img file to boot it up?

Thanks a lot.

Yes I did it. Check fiew post, i describes what I did.

 

If you want your vm to autoboot, create a batch file with "vmware - x yourvmfile".

I store 1 VMK / disk. So if one disk fails, i add a new one, and recreate the missing vmk

I read all your other posts but didn't see how you boot it up on VMWare Workstation.

Once again, do I need an iso or just download img file to boot from it?

Thanks.

Thanks to everyone for the new loader.

Everything works (Baremetal Intel® Server Board S1200BTL + Xeon) installed with hybridbiosuefi2. All 3 NICs and running SATA controller.

But my backplane HP Smart Array P410 RAID controller is no longer recognized. Under XPEnoboot 5.2-5967.1 everything went. In the hardware support list of the P410 is indeed drin. Anyone have a tip or best guidance for me?

thanks for your help !!!

 

 

Hi, did you have any success with your p410 card? I am having the same problem.

Just wanted to share some information with the 3 people that will actually bother to search this thread lol.

 

I needed a couple more networking ports for my bare metal install and ordered this dual port card off of Amazon and it was detected right away using 1.01 loader.

 

So if anyone needs a dual port Intel NIC i350, this one works great right out of the box!

Did you do anything else to get it working? I have an I354 motherboard with that doesn't work even though they typically use the same drivers.

Hi Everyone,

 

Thanks for all the help from everyone in this thread. I have the Jun's 1.01 running baremetal on my HP ML10v2 with no issues. The SHR works, the btrfs works, got an SSD in TRIM and working as SSD cache and another 1TB drive only for the moment for data as Volume 1 that was used in DSM 5.2 previously. So all is good, except the fan speed of my ML10v2 is very loud. Its staying at about 35-45% on idle and when I play a movie on PMS, it just goes like a jet plane, cannot even hear the movie playing.

When i was running DSM 5.2 in VmWare ESXi, it was fine, fan speed sitting at 6% idle and when playing Plex movie around 10-18%. But this is too loud. Originally I tried DSM 6 using Jun's image on ESXi and it worked fine with no fan speed issues , so same as DSM 5.2. The only thing is that in VmWare ESXi, the HDDS do not spin down and/or sleep and there is no SMART available. Also in ESXi, PMS struggles to encode H265 and also the DTV using playstation Play TV dual tuner , stutters and choppy video.

So Ideally, I would like keep it running in Baremetal, but the loud fan speed is a deal breaker. So I am thinking going back to DSM 5.2 in ESXi.

Anyone using the same server? How's your fan speeds? Anything else I can do to make it quite like as in ESXi ? Can any of the experts here help with may be if there are drivers needed etc etc ?

By the way, the ESXi Image that i used is the HP build 6.0 U2. Can I copy any drivers etc from there for the fan control?

Any help is really appreciated, Please.

Thanks.

Hi Everyone,

 

 

I have this same server. Over on OCAU it has been discovered that if you disconnect the front temperature sensor, the machine quietens right down. Personally I have not done this to mine as mines running under ESXI (and is therefore silent except when I have iflicks doing work on the mac os VM). Because I upgraded mine to a xeon, I can run more than one OS and pass through a disk controller (Dell H310 flashed in IT mode) to xpenology. So I have xpenology for the nas side of things, and mac os el capitan so I can share video to an apple tv 2 (no plex for this model apple tv which is a shame), and transcode it without having to cook my poor macbooks little i5 cpu.

 

before pulling the temperature sensor I'd be placing a thermocouple/digital thermometer on the heatsink and keeping an eye on how warm the cpu gets with the sensor connected especially during plex transcoding (play something while your not actually watching it, and monitor the thermocouple). you can also monitor this in iLO

 

Then do the same with the sensor pulled. if it gets too hot for your liking just stop the transcode, shut down and plug the sensor back in. These servers seem to have rather agressive fan profiles, and sometimes make a hell of a racket for no reason at all. Yes I agree they do sound like a jet taking off when heavily loaded/starting up.

 

And yes my first post on these forums. So hi everyone :smile:

Just wanted to share some information with the 3 people that will actually bother to search this thread lol.

 

I needed a couple more networking ports for my bare metal install and ordered this dual port card off of Amazon and it was detected right away using 1.01 loader.

 

So if anyone needs a dual port Intel NIC i350, this one works great right out of the box!

Did you do anything else to get it working? I have an I354 motherboard with that doesn't work even though they typically use the same drivers.

 

No sir, it was just plug and play, I did not even have to edit the MAC address in the loader nor make any changes to it at all.

Hi!

 

Thanks for all great work!

 

Just some information for other users with problems in network.

 

I have a HP n54l and tried everything to get this going but after every try to upgrade i lost connection to the network.

I tried different usb, i changed vid/pid sn and mac and so on, nothing worked.

 

Then as a last thing after 2 days of trying i tried a clean install (instead of a migration), wich will NOT delete all the important stuff, just your config and apps.

 

THAT WORKED GREAT!

I've managed to install this on an ASUS VivoMini VC65R with 4 hard drives in RAID 5 and it works really great. :smile:

 

Now I want to reinstall it and this time I want to add a new serialnumber and MAC before the install so I can use my Synology Account.

 

How do I add the new serial and MAC address to the bootloader before I do a fresh install? I would be greatful for a small step-by-step instruction.

 

Or can I change serial and MAC on my current install without any problems?

Woooooohoooo... worked for me on HP Microserver N40L like a charm! THANK YOU!!!

 

Have DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 4 on it! I have a spare 64GB ssd and will give it a try as ssd cache too!

 

Thank you again for the loader!

Should work fine without a reinstall. Edit the grub config file to include the proper boot arguments.

Thanks! One more newbie question: Do I have to actually flash my NIC with the MAC address? :smile:

Yes, sure if you want WOL. Otherwise, forget it.

Hi Everyone,

...So hi everyone :smile:

 

Hi, I also have Dell H310 in IT mode. How did you pass through disk controller to xpenology? And you can see S.M.A.R.T after the "pass through"? Are your HDDs spinning down/ sleeping now in idle time?

Thanks.
