DSM 6.1 Final release, and now?

Recommended Posts

I think Xpenology 6.0 has already been widely used without too much problem, not so much that I know off anyway. It is not "Offically" released, for whatever reason those developers thinks not suitable, maybe there is in fact some bugs that they still not able to fix to call it final.

 

But I have a feeling that Xpenology has started to fall, from the drop of discussion and relative absent of post from developers. The last progress for Xpenology 6.0 beta was back in November 2016. So far I have been using that bootloader without any issue, sucessed to update DSM 6 to update 9. I hold little hope to further development if I am honest. In the same time I repect all the work developers put into xpenology and there is no reason to force them to work on it if they don't want to.

 

Nonetheless, I would still be glad if the project would progress further, be DSM 6.1 releases a driving motion to ignite the developers eager again. I will come back and forth to check things out from time to time. Cheers.

Source code for 6.1 has not been released yet and I doubt it will be released any time soon. DO NOT UPDATE DSM to 6.1 when you are prompted. DSM 6.0.2 Update 9 is the furthest you can go with Jun's loader v.1.01.

I agree that the development side of XPEnology seems to have dropped off a bit but you can't hold anyone at fault. I'm still on 5.x at the moment and will probably jump to the release of FREENAS 10 when it hits on 03/06/2017.

I updated from 6.0.2 update 9 to 6.1 and the xpenology does not come back. The finder sees it but it can not recover.

The same for me. I just realized how stupid it was. Now I need my data to get back. Could someone suggest how can I downgrade to 6.0?

Does anyone read what I wrote above? READ.

Happens every release :sad:

I did once think of writing a general guide - read the forum; set auto updates off; don't update until you know it works; always have a backup; and above all - read the forum.

But noone would read it :cry:

I'm sure I saw someone mention in the Jun post about Synology promising to release the source code for version 6 when 6.1 comes out.

 

I assume with it, we'll finally get some Hyper-V support on version 6? I'm still using 5.2, it works perfectly fine but always worry about security patches and that. My box isn't internet facing but I'm guessing that wouldn't stop anyone who knows what they're doing to get in via another route.

Hi

For the "noobs" that tried the 6.1 and now the system does not boot, is there a way to get back to 6.0 without loosing data?

Thanks.

You only get the recover option.

I did manage to save my data with a live Fedora USB.

Now i will reinstall the 6.0.

I didn't try with an empty harddrive.

I'm pretty sure that using a blank hdd you could recover from 6.1.

I have 2 4tb purples in my setup, and moved the data from one to another in fedora live, and reinstalled on the empty drive.

Now with all done you get repair partition wich is working.

Also i didn't had any raid mode, only basic disk.

look at Juns latest post Alpha is out for testing

Clean OP, add link to Pokanskiman's tutorial and add download mirror.

 

DMS 6.1 uses updated kernel (3.10.102).

The kernel sources for 6.0.2 (3.10.77) has not been released yet so don't hope anything from Syno before months.

 

Like before no sources = no loader

 

jun's v1.01 loader CAN'T support DSM 6.1 so DO NOT UPGRADE !

 

I've rebased the vendor changes on 3.10.77 to 3.10.102, seems still works.

 

Update for 6.1 loader at https://mega.nz/#F!18kB1BTB!1ft3N5Hnrcn ... A!5kcjyJ7R

 

THANKS Jun!

I do it to recover dsm 6 you have to do migrate with dsm 5 I have managed to save when version low only asks you to migrate and the data is not lost but preferably done on a blank disk

Thank you Polanskiman. I saw post.

I wanted to do it anyway and then try to mess with the boot key by comparing to the boot files on a little dual disk syn box I have :grin:

Boot into force install and do a non-migration install. You'll lose your settings but your data will be fine.

Why not do both, Xpenology with BTRFS+ SHR for the various sizes of odd disks and Freenas for the top security of data via ZFS. That is the benefit of using ESXi and VMs. Run any number of apps well and safely.
