I'm planning on trying this with a Ryzen 5 1600. From what I can tell the latest ESXi update  (6.5 update 1) supports the zen type cpu with all cores and threads working.

 

Update. The 6.1 loader is working on AMD Ryzen (with SMT/all cores & threads enabled) via ESXi 6.5 update 1.

Awesome! Would love to buy one of those Threadripper CPU's :grin:

I'm trying to pass through the raw disk using RDM. It works initially, I can load DSM, but after a reboot the disks are 'not initialized' - it's like they are in non-persistent mode.

 

Using WD Red 4TB + RDM + Physical Mode (It won't let me select virtual mapping) + Independent - Persistent.

 

Anyone know why this would not be working?

Got this to work by using a SATA controller rather than a SCSI controller, I also had to boot xpenology using the default option rather than the vmware/esxi option.

how do i update v1.02b (DS3615xs, DS3617xs and DS916+) is for DSM 6.1

:!: You want to modify the following: :!:

 

Change vid=0x090C to vid=0x[your usb drive vid]

Change pid=0x1000 to pid=0x[your usb drive pid]

Change sn=C7LWN09761 to sn=generate your sn here with DS3615xs model

Change mac1=0011322CA785 to mac1=[your NIC MAC address]. You can also add set mac2=[your NIC MAC address #2] and so on until mac4 if you have multiple NICs. However, this is not necessary.

Optional: Change set timeout='1' to set timeout='4' - This will allow you more time to make a selection in the Grub Boot Menu when it appears.

You would think that ESXi completely virtualizes the CPU and by default it does. However, once you enable passthrough the situation seems to change and the CPU is limited to the instructions it actually supports. It's like enabling passthrough punches a hole in the virtualization layer.... I'll investigate/prove this right or wrong when testing this with other PCI devices in passthrough mode instead of the current LSI SATA controller. So if anyone has tried using AMD on ESXi please let me know. My assumption is that it works well, but breaks horrible once you enable passthrough.

 

I tested enabling passthrough on an AMD with ESXi 6.5 with the latest loader and DSM 6.1.3 and it still seems to work. I don't have a PCI SAS/SATA controller at the moment so passed through a pci video card instead - but I think that should satisfy the passthrough test.

 

Now time to order a SAS/SATA controller; I'm thinking an LSI 9211-8i.

Thanks, but I've figured it out. The problem was that I had to enbale hotplug cpu in esxi. Everything is working great now. I have the 9201-16i myself and it's great once you know about the setting.

I have DSM 6.0.2 running Jun loader on Esxi 6.0 with a smaller 24 mb vmdk that is boot drive (disk 1) and larger vmdk hard drive (disk 2) that contains data and apps. I am trying to upgrade to DSM 6.1 with v1.02b DS3615xs. I can get the virtual machine to boot but I get a message no hard drive installed even though the vmdk hard drive that contains data and apps is connected as disk 2 with v1.02b drive as disk 1. I am not sure what has changed ? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I get an error about insufficient system space (-16) when I try to install pat file when I try to revert back to DSM 6.0.2 with v1.01. I am stuck now. I have data and system partitions on single vmdk. How can either revert back to DSM 6.0.2 or upgrade to DSM 6.1 ?

Unfortunately im still on quicknicks version as al other combinations with Jun's loader versions and different extra.lzma files failed onmy System. Either my adaptec HBA 1000 16i or my onboard NIC Realtek 8111 (on Gigabyte Z170 Board) is not recognized.

 

Can anyone recommend me a NIC Chipset, thats working for sure? Then i will buy a PCIe NIC and use that instead of the onboard for further experiments.

The Intel E1000 series of PCI-E NIC's work perfect with this and its what I use. Usually the quad nic E1000 but the dual nic works fine too. 

 

Basically any NIC with mainline linux support works out of the box.

Any way to get this bootloader to think its for the FS3017? The new flash station...

 

I have some older poweredge servers (r610/710) with dual xeon's that would benefit from this, the current loader works fine but doesn't see all my cores much less the second cpu.

As I played around I found that even the 3615xs offers the new "F1 -Format" if it detects 3 SSDs.

The current loader *does* support the RAID F1 storage for SSD's, but I was looking more to get support for the second cpu and extra cores on my poweredge r610's+

In your case I would try an installation via ESXi and fool the DSM to only have one CPU socket. On every installation I see DSM sees every cpu core from the first CPU socket. Only the information page from DSM shows only 2 cpu cores but I think this is hard coded. A proof with "cat /proc/cpuinfo" and an installation of "htop" via qnapware shows easily that every cpu core will be used.
What do you want to do with such many cpu cores on a NAS?

Hello all.

 

I am using a bare metal version and I have a problem. I have two external usb hard drives always connected to pc, to backup data. Everything works, but if I turn off the pc and turn on after two days, the dsm doesn't boot. I have disconnect the external hard drives and reset the pc. But if I turn off the PC today and after 5 hours turn on again, booting normaly. I already confirmed BIOS settings, and the only option to boot is the pen I'am using to boot DSM.
Some one have ideia what can be?

 

Thanks.

You need to configure your BIOS with the both external usb connected to the pc. In the boot priority of the USB you need to be sure that the USB boot is the first device.

As you describe it seems like some external usb have more priority than your USB boot and that is the possible reason because not boot your NAS.

Hi! Installed DSM 6.1.3 on the Z9PE-D8 configuration with two E5-2670 processors. Used the loader V1.02B from ds3617xs. Using cat /proc/cpuinfo found out that he only sees 8 cores out of 16. Is it possible to train him to see both processors and all threads?
