HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 - DSM 6.1 on Baremetal

Recommended Posts

First I have updated to 6.1.1-15101 on Jun's 1.02a (which is working without any problem), but when I installed 6.1.2-15132, the process finished in recovery loop. I had the same result with Jun's  v1.02a2 and v1.02b. 

I suggest using Jun's 1.02a on Gen8 Baremetal, and do not update to the latest version.

it wil be great if someone would make a step by step tutorial for Gen8 DSM 6.1 
 


I used Jun's loader v1.02a and installd DSM 6.1-15101. After a reboot I updated to the 15132. After this stage you have to boot in with a live linux (Ubuntu) and follow polanskis tutorial about "How to access DSM's Data & System partitions" and copy /lib/modules/update to /lib/modules. After a reboot everything will work.

I haven't updated to 15152 yet, so I don't know if it would work with the latest DSM, but 15132 is working without any problems.

Update to 6.1.2-15152 with Jun's 1.02a will not work from the previous version (132).

Hi! I'm a newbie and I'm going to do a clean install on a bare metal HP Gen8. For wich DSM Version should I go (and wich bootloader version) to keep the installation process as simple as possible (step-by-step tutorial?).

Hi!

 

Use Jun's loader v1.02b + the latest DSM
Just look at this video for a tutorial:

I try to install using  Jun's loader v1.02b, but I cannot go further than the first step! Apparently the system doens't recognize the disks! I've already choose the SATA AHCI option on the BIOS! Can you please help?

 

Regards

I haven't made any changing in the BIOS. Check on the HP's website if your disks are supported by the server.

@JohnnyR

have your drives been used to something else before you tried to install DSM?

If so, you might want to delete the existing partition info on them before trying once more.

I have expierenced the following problems (so far) with Update 6:

  • I'm unable to change the DSM interface ports away from 5000 / 5001 - the were different before the update but now I cant change them
  • I can only access the DSM on port 5000 (without https) trying https:// on port 5001 does not work - nothing responds
  • Photo station no longer works, even after uninstall/reinstall I'm unable to access it (it simply opens DSM when clicking the icon)
  • The Synology search tool detects the server but clicking connect inside the tool opens the browser on the ports I used to use (8080) even though the web interface now only responds on port 5000 and I can not change the port.

Anyone else seeing something like this?
