N40L ESXI 6.0 U2 - Upgraded to DSM 6 - BROKE VOLUMES

Recommended Posts

I have been holding off upgrading to DSM 6 since seeing the main thread started months ago hoping that eventually there would be an "official" release of XPEnolougy DSM 6 by now.

 

This hasn't happened yet but I can see a lot of people have successfully got it running so since. I had a spare ESXI host I thought I would give it a go. I saw a couple of posts where people claimed just clicking update and going to find.synology.com allowed them to get it working. This actually worked for me as well which I was surprised about but none of my volumes are working, the data isn't important so I have even tried to format them but they still unmount during the reboot.

 

Does anyone know if I can fix this issue?

 

I am happy to reinstall again or delete the disks in esxi to start fresh but not sure what will even work so looking for suggestions :smile:

 

I have read a lot of threads/posts and I think a sticky thread would be nice with the latest install methods and any bugs with fixes/workarounds

When I try creating a group I get "failed to apply settings" and when I boot I get a notification saying "Abnormality detected on NAS2. All volumes have been unmounted."

How are your drives mounted in your server? As in, what kind of backplane? The new loader for 6.0 doesnt have a lot of the kernel drivers or drivers in general. So if you have a RAID card or HBA card you might be SOL.

They are using the onboard raid in the HP N40L.

 

I have now setup a 2nd VM on the same server using a OVF template someone posted, this VM doesn't update to version 845, I get error 21 when it gets to 20%.

 

I was able to create a volume on the 16GB vmdk that it installed which I think was using IDE.

 

I have now formatted a disk and created a new SCSI vmdk but it is now showing up in storage manager so I am a bit further on with disks but not able to update, I might try a new vmdk in workstation instead of vSphere and choose SATA or IDE.
