Howto upgrade from 6.0.2 to 6.1.1 on bare metal

Recommended Posts

So I wanted to make sure I verified this before doing it.

 

I should be able to upgrade from 6.0.2 to 6.1.1 by creating a new USB drive with Jun's loader 1.02a and then going through migration assistant on find.synology.com . Does anyone know of any issues ? I have tried reading through some of the other threads but they have so many pages and are hard to sort. thanks!

Do 1.02a2 for the 3617. Use the image burner and update the same stuff detailed in the 6.0.2 guide.

 

Use the 3617 serial generator for the serial.

Highlights of the upgrade procedure:

 

- Burn the loader image v1.02a (or v1.02a2 according to your needs) onto a usb key.

- Turn off your NAS and remove the usb key with v1.01 from it.

- Plug in the newly created usb key with v1.02a(2)

- Boot and search your box with Synology Assistant

- Follow the instructions on screen to migrate.

 

That is the general upgrade procedure, nevertheless I don't recommend it just yet specially if you are on a AMD platform. If you want to try it at least make yourself (and the community) a favour do it on a test drive first to make sure it works on your machine.
