DSM 6.1.x Loader


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm really grateful for the detailed guides and info on here - THANK YOU.

 

I am building a Xeon-D based NAS so my hardware should be almost identical to the DS3617xs which has just been released.

 

My install will be BARE METAL.

 

What is the benefit or difference in using different DSM packages?

 

Jun advises the DS3615xs.pat with his 1.01 loader. His 1.02a loader has DS3617xs included.

 

I downloaded the DS3617xs.pat for DSM 6.1 (no earlier version) but am uncertain which DSM to install.

 

I have seen steps taken to get the latest DSM 6.1 working and am interested to know if there is a decent reason for me to do so...

 

Use DS3615xs for now, especially if you want DSM6.1. DS3617xs has a time bomb built in which renders your NAS unusable after ~12-24hrs.

 

Second query:

the bootloader sets a MAC address for my NIC's (10GBase-T onboard).

 

How do I wake the NAS using Wake on Lan (WOL)? is the MAC a logical one to fool DSM and do I need to flash over my NIC MAC address or will my PC etc just see the native MAC and I point my magic packet at that?

 

 

Still learning a lot about xpenology and the interactions of the bootloader and the DSM system.

 

Use your own MAC address instead of any generated one, and use that for WOL.

Good Morning,

 

is there a way to get my usb-controller working? This is the only thing I miss in DSM6.

 

I ran DSM in a ESXI VM. The controller is directly passed.

You don't need to passthrough your usb controller to use it. Just go to your vm setting page, add a virtual usb controller to the config, click apply, then plug in your usb device, go back into your vm setting page, add a usb device and select that particular device from the list, click apply and you are done.

Any news on stable 6.1 Jun?

 

Many thanks!

 

You can check my post from March 12th 2017 where I commented during and after my upgrade and I have been having zero issues since. I run Plex, docker containers with several programs, and have 7 x 3TB drives in 1 array and another 3 x drives 2TB drives in a separate array. So I would say Alpha is running just fine.

 

I have not followed up much since I read that the source code was released. If it really was released, then I would imagine there are people working on something shinier as we speak.

Jun actually uploaded an alpha2 yesterday (10/04/2017) with ds3617xs and ds916+ updated image and patch. You can check his mega link. Not sure though what the changes are since he didn't make any comment or post anything here.

I tested both D3617xs and DS916+ with loader v1.02a2. There seems to be an issue with the DS916+. This was done under VirtualBox. Below the logs:

DS916 is added for hardware transcoding support, and its kernel is optimized for intel's braswell family processors. For desktop/mobile processors, 4th Gen Core processor or later is required to provide necessary instruction features.

for example, i7-4700mq works, but e3-1230v2 complains about undefined instructions.

Hello,

 

I've been running xpeno baremetal for a few years now.

 

Yesterday I went to update from the last nanoboot to Jun's loader (Thanks for the work Jun!). I went through the procedure in the tutorial (Thanks Polanskiman!).

 

Boot is fine, but the box does not appear on the net. Mobo is an older Geforce with an onboard Nvidia NIC (forcedeth).

 

Is the nvidia NIC driver included in the drivers with Jun's loader? Is anyone else using Jun's loader and an Nvidia Nic?

 

If you are on v1.01, replace the extra.lzma with this one https://mega.nz/#!KUxmhY7R!FYOSzesxdUjPlynO4YDvSu4LKfFkFk9eBvkUD9AGS04. I included the forcedeth module.

 

Let me know if it works.

 

I repeat. This is only for v1.01 NOT v.1.02a.

 

 

Can you explain how do you make this ?

I would like to add my own driver to have a full compatible loader with Proliant .

DS916 is added for hardware transcoding support, and its kernel is optimized for intel's braswell family processors. For desktop/mobile processors, 4th Gen Core processor or later is required to provide necessary instruction features.

for example, i7-4700mq works, but e3-1230v2 complains about undefined instructions.

 

Ok then I guess someone with the required hardware should test it.

 

By the way, what did you add/fix on v1.02a2?

I had the same problem (I guess) : each time my nas started, there was an error message "System has detected that one of your storage has crashed...". Yet, everything was working perfectly.

 

This message disappeared with update 2 of DSM 6.1.

 

Hope this will help.

 

Here is the message : jtdUCAS.jpg

I tested both D3617xs and DS916+ with loader v1.02a2. There seems to be an issue with the DS916+. This was done under VirtualBox. Below the logs:

 




GNU GRUB  version 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.9

     DS916+ 6.1 Baremetal with Jun's Mod v1.02-alpha                            
     DS916+ 6.1 Baremetal with Jun's Mod v1.02-alpha Reinstall                  
     DS916xs 6.1 VMWare/ESXI with Jun's Mod v1.02-alpha

By the way, what did you add/fix on v1.02a2?

I enabled mcu emulation for ds916p/ds3617 to deal with "time bomb" problem, plus as you notice, standalone patcher is provided for interested guys, though I think peoples want to recompile the loader should be able to extract it from the img.

These models (in fact, I believe all new models) expect some kind of challenge/response through serial port with on board mcu. I solve this by emulate a serial port to response this kind messages in kernel.

Tried to test Latest Alpha(17xs a2) on the Dell R710.( Broadcom NetXtreme® II 5709c )

Are the Braodcom Nics causing and issue?

The dell 790s I noticed that when I used SYBA 2 Port Ethernet PCIe x 1 Card, Realtek RTL8111 chip they did not play well with Network. When I used onboard Intel all seemed fine on install.

But if I tried a vdsm heatbeat between them they did not like it ata all.

Both modules/drivers for Broadcom NetXtreme® II 5709c and Realtek RTL8111 are included in the extra ramdisk of both loaders v1.02a and v1.02a2.

:: Loading module qlcnic ... [  OK  ]
:: Loading module r8169 ... [  OK  ]

Try re-downloading the loader and doing a fresh install. For some reason the first download I did of v1.02a2 seemed to be missing some modules. Not sure if it was me who messed up, the download who got corrupted or that Jun actually updated the loader in the meantime but I re-downloaded and now those 2 among others more are showing.

 

If that's possible and if it still doesn't work try checking the logs through consol and a serial cable.

Nice. Let's see how this one goes.

Thanks for giving your time to the community. I think we all appreciate it here.

Trying to understand the current situation here. Does the undefined instructions complain affect machines running e3-1230 v2 with esxi being the underlay OS?

What problems at you with 3615?

3615 it is built on Bromolow.

RC18015xs + Intel Xeon E3-1230 v2 Bromolow

RS18016xs + Intel Xeon E3-1230 v2 Bromolow

RS3617xs Intel Xeon E3-1230 v2 Bromolow

What can work not so and for what some else instructions from DS916 are necessary?

I it still ask that and most to understand since I don't see a basic difference.

In 3617 can it is urgent only for those who really have these new processors what I strongly doubt that it essentially and such generally is a lot of.

I still believe that most of the people want to use 3617 just because it's the newest and the best without any other reason. :wink:

ds916p is for braswell family processors (j3160 n3710 etc), there seems no much point to run it on e3 except debugging the loader.

Forgive and what, there is a difference in the OS Windows 7 started, let us assume, on i3 or i7?

It seems to me, in this situation DSM - it and in Africa DSM don't?

I know it. I don't understand another why someone tries to start ds916p on E3-1230 v2. Unless only for debugging of the loader, as you write.

Hey Jun,

 

Thanks for the updates. Would the DS916 build work on, say, a G4560 too? Or HW accel requires not just an integrated GPU, but AVX 2.0 too? Also... The DS916+ only has 4 disks. But most of us use 6 or more disks. Will that still work? I see that there's a 5-bay expansion for that model, the DX513. Will the extra disks be detected as an expansion case or something?

 

Also I dropped your an e-mail a while back!

The v1.02a2 Loader still has the same error when a volume with SHR is created. On every boot! :sad:

 

You need to describe your problem a bit better. I do not see any problems with SHR volumes, at least it works for me.

 

Hey!

My Mainboard is an Asrock J3455M (same problem on VMware/Virtualbox) and DSM boots fine. But after i edited the synoinfo.conf file, so i'd be able to create a SHR Volume, DSM always gives me the error on restart that "Dark Zydor" posted. Error shows all drives connected.
