Not that it matters, i booted ubtuntu on the board and both NICs worked fine.

 

You could check out which modules are being used while running ubuntu. ssh in and type:

 

lshw -class network

or

lspci -k

This should provide you enough information on the NICs and the modules they are using.

I can try the custom ramdisk. Does that ram disk include Jun's modules/firmware on top of the extra ones?

 

Yes that ramdisk includes the defaults modules plus the new ones compiled by IG-88

Following the tutorial but at step 8 when I direct it to the DSM_DS3615xs_15217.pat file it says the following:

you have to use an installation file of 6.1.7-15284 or later (10)

Any ideas?

 

That is because you are using a DSM version that is inferior to the one you have already installed on your machine. DSM_DS3615xs_15217 is DSM 6.1.4. You need to use what DSM is actually telling you: DSM 6.1.7-15284. Download here: https://archive.synology.com/download/DSM/release/6.1.7/15284/ - DO NOT update to any major DSM version above DSM 6.1.7 with Jun's loader v1.02b. You can update DSM 6.1.7 up to critical update 2.

Thank you. That is strange as I removed all the hard drives from the machine and formated them in windows before reinstalling DSM back on them. I wonder why it reporeted that i already had a version on my machine?

Because of usb key/loader. When you install DSM on your machine the kernel in the usb loader gets updated. If you did not reflash your usb then the loader has remained in the last version of DSM that you installed.

Thanks but I have gone ahead and setup the xpenology with all my data drives etc and cannot boot ubtuntu anymore. 

Anyway of finding the nic info in the current state...

Unless live booting Ubuntu won't mess with the dsm in anyway?

Live booting Ubuntu will not affect your DSM installation.

ok so i checked and below is what i found. Looks like the two modules for the two NICs are "e1000e" and "igb". Both of which i can find in the extra custom ram disk. They are likely in Jun's loader also but i didnt look yet. So the question is why wont my DSM see that other NIC. im alsopasting my grub info below in case there is something wrong in there.

 

"lspci -k" out from ubuntu:

 

00:1f.6 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V (rev 10)
    Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V
    Kernel driver in use: e1000e
    Kernel modules: e1000e
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation I211 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03)
    Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation I211 Gigabit Network Connection
    Kernel driver in use: igb
    Kernel modules: igb
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The relevant extract from grub.cfg:  (i've hidden the last 5 digits of the mac below)

set mac1=7085c28XXXXb
set mac2=7085c28XXXX9
set rootdev=/dev/md0
set netif_num=2
set extra_args_3617=''

set common_args_3617='syno_hdd_powerup_seq=0 HddHotplug=0 syno_hw_version=DS3617xs vender_format_version=2 console=ttyS0,115200n8 withefi elevator=elevator quiet syno_port_thaw=1'

 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The board also has a wifi adapter built in which also doesnt work, info below, Though i dont care about that really. Just providing info as FYI

 

 02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Device 24fb (rev 10)
    Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 2110
    Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
    Kernel modules: iwlwifi

 

 

 

EDIT: i checked jun's loader 1.02b and it does not have the modules for e1000e and igb..

By the to replace the extra.lzma in jun's loader, i had simply mounted the 30MB partition and replaced the lzma file in there. I assume thats all that was needed? i guess if my method was not correct then i would not even have one lan working?

Hi All, I'm running DSM 5.2-5644 Update 5 on a Dell Optiplex 780 with Quad processor, 3 drives and all happy BUT I need to update to DSM 6.x to be able to get Plex updates. I have read/re-read this guide and was going to migrate to DSM6.1 but I now see Jun has worked to get a DSM 6.2 boot loader working. Do you think I can follow these steps to Migrate from 5.2 to 6.2 in one go? (I will build a test with a spare clean drive to check HW first before doing migration)

Try on your hw with fresh hdd/sdd to install ad start dsm 6.1 or 6.2. If it’ll be work you can to migrate your 5.2.
