Somehow got 6.1.15047 installed on my 5.2.5644 setup

Recommended Posts

Well not somehow... I used the web assistant to connect and just expected it to give me an option to select the pat file to install. Well now my drives think they are 6.1 and refuse to normally install. Synology assistant can't access the system partition to wipe the settings. I can't even mount it.

 

I only have 2 drives so things should be mirrored, and I have a spare disk that I could install 5.5.5644 on. Should I try to copy over my data to that and then see if it is recoverable? I could add my original drives back afterwards.

 

DiskStation> cat /proc/mdstat

Any other suggestions?

So I ended up just deleting the system partitions (sda1 and sdb1) and then reinstalling the pat file. Worked fine and since it was only 2 disks my data was fine and I am rebuilding the array now.
