DSM 6.1.x Loader


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to migrate a original DS1815 ( DSM 6.1-15047 Update 2 ) to Xpenology? To make sure I don't lost any data I have a backup. But a restore of 20TB needs a lot of time. So a migration without losing data is a good option. But I don't know the best way.

A little update on my side, updated from 1.0.1jun+6.0.2update9 straight to 1.02b+6.1.2latest - went very smooth.

Updates has been done on a HP Microserver Gen8 (Xeon), the installation is based on Proxmox4.x latest with drives passthrough.

 

Hint:

 - after the first reboot, the VMware/ESXI grub entry is booted, be sure to reboot and select the first one - otherwise your drives wont be detected

 - virtio NIC / virtio drives still do not work

I tried 1.02b with my N36L (HP G7) baremetal but I cannot see it in the Synology Assistance. The only loader which worked for N36L baremetal was the 1.01. Did anybody managed to make the 1.02b working with N36L baremetal?

just wanted to inform everybody that my update to 1.02b + dsm 6.1.2 15132 worked.

I came from version 5.2 5466 xpenoboot.

I had no problems with update file and did not need to have serial access

 

baremetal qnap ts459 - intel atom d510

altough this is my first post here, I am working with xpenology since years.

 

thanks everybody for great work here!

Hi,

just a simple question from my side:

Is is possible to access disks via fibre channel?

Got the Qlogic QLE2462 and a disk shelf, it would be awesome if there is support on the kernel for the same.

If is is not, where can I request the support?

i guess i answered my own question. so 3615xs does not support Disk Group.

 

i tried porting to DS916+ since this is like a new install for me however i cant find my NAS in synology assistant.

 

is it possible my NIC drivers are present in the image for DS3615xs and not in DS916+ ?

Hey guys,

 

After reading all these pages, I'm still a little confused about whether or not I should update.  Configuration- Loader v1.02a, baremetal, Btrfs volume on 6.1-15047 Update 2.  Can I safely update to 6.1.2-15132?

 

Thanks!

Updated over the weekend, worked without any issues!

I'm running DSM 6.1-15047 Update 2 on a ESXi 6.5 install.  Am I able to simply install the new version b loader over my old boot image and then let DSM reboot and then allow it to update to the latest version without a clean install? I've got a large amount of data that I would rather not have to re-download using Hyperbackup...

 

Is someone able to answer this directly?  Can I use the latest loader from Jun, and then simply update to the latest version of DSM or does it require a completely clean install?  If it requires a clean install, can O snapshot the VM, add a new virtual HDD and let the OS be mirrored, and then remove the proper drives, update boot loader and then boot from the virtual drive on the new version and then add the existing drives and repair the DSM partition for it all to work?

Hello All.

I am having trouble ISCSI drives being recognised in ESXi 6.x.

  • I am trying to do RMD mapping for 3 x 2TB Disks that I have as local Disks on an ESXI host . (I don't have a raid card so no pass-through vt-d option)

Creating an RDM Mapping for Local Disk

vmkfstools -r /vmfs/devices/disks/vml.0100000000202020202057442d574d43333030343931373636574443205744 /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/RDMRed3.vmdk

Then to see what the created Vmdk looks like

Nest I just add the VMDk to the esxi VM

power On the Vm , all Good

But disks do not show in DSM.

long story short, I am not sure what else to do , this is a fresh clean install of the latest DMS using the latest loader.

I suspect that SCSI disk are not supported and I must use SATA, can anyone confirm this form me please .

Dear

 

I am using v1.02b 3615xs, in esxi 5.5, I already amend the sn and mac,

Before, it would not show the following error, and all video could view in ds video and ds photo.

"  System failed to convert video [/volume1/photo/.../2016-12-24 chung wedding/20161224 (9).MTS] to mpeg4  "

"  System failed to convert video [/volume1/photo/.../2016-12-24 chung wedding/20161224 (9).MTS] to mpeg4  "

... etc.,

After upgrade to 6.x.x, all video could not be covert, 

Is it due to sn/mac address problem?

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the new 1.02b bootloader.

Now, DS3617xs with DSM 6.1.2-15132 runs well on ESXi 6.0.

Did not have any issues so far. 
However, I use it only as Backup and Streaming Server.

 

Installed and used Packages:
Hyper Backup
Hyper Backup Vault
Cloud Station ShareSync
Logitech Media Server

On the latency of the 5TB Harddisk I have some room of improvement, but I had bad latency with 1.02a and DS3615xs as well ...

As there are several Windows and Unix VMs running on this ESXi, I can't use Pass-Thru mode for the Synology VM

You can flash your USB key to 1.02b the same way you had done with 1.02a ;)

Don't forget to change your serial and mac address in the grub.conf

Do I need to change the Serial number on my fresh install on ESXi ?
