XPEnology DS3612xs DSM 4.3 build 3827 (ESXi v1.2)

Recommended Posts

Why would I want to change the MAC address and/or the serial?

What's the reason people change it?

If you want to Run two synologies / xpenologies, you need to change one's Mac adress. WOL also requires modification to be aligned with the adress of the (virtual) Adapter.

CIFS mount : I will update modules (compiled with the "esxi" sources) to fix it

 

Thanks Trantor, I'm waiting for this to be fixed together with NFS (which has been fixed already), I know you're doing this on your own free time but you think I should upgrade from the ESXi v1.0 to the v1.1beta to get NFS working or rather wait some weeks for cifs to be fixed?

In your running v1.0 just copy modules provided in v1.1 to /lib/modules/.

Reboot and NFS should work :smile:

@ Trantor: Could not wait till the weekend starts, just tried now...

See here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=558&p=10088#p10088

 

IT WORKS! so we have VMTools up and runnig Doc! :mrgreen:

Looking further for the next complete release. :ugeek:

 

Something like v5 Beta for bare-metal install, would be nice to have: NFS + CIFS + bootstratp + open-vm-tools + Update 4 included into a complete package - ESXi v1.2 maybe ? :mrgreen:

This is not an official synology product

This is only design for testing purpose not for production.

No warranty for any damages, loss of data or anything else.

 

This is based on jukolaut's work.

 

 

Create the virtual machine to esxi and add hardware:

 

- IDE controller with single harddisk (vmdk file in archive). Boot from this.

- PVSCSI controller and raw harddisks or vmdk files for data.

- VMXNET3 / E1000 network.

- Boot, install with pat file from standard build with Synology Assistant, Enjoy :smile:

 

 

Version 1.1 is now available : http://xpenology.trantor.be/esxi/ (please click on ad to help me with this project)

 

 

How to install optware bootstrap and open-vm-tools (thanks to Tuatara)

 

 

I'm not an ESXi expert, if someone can help me improve this version :geek:

 

Changelog:

v1.1 (22/12/2013)

- Fix NFS support (copy modules to /lib/modules)


v1 (15/12/2013)

- Patch kernel source with jukolaut fix to get VMware PVSCSI working
- Patch synobios to prevent SYNOIO messages
- Build special ESXi kernel
- All drivers included in standard version are also present here except SATA ones

 

TODO LIST:

- Make full repack (pat + vmdk)

- Build open-vm-tools

 

Today I connected a Synology Audio port (It's actually a USB sound card with several output methods) which I used to use with my 713+ to my ESXi server. I found that my DSM on ESXi will crash if I play a song through the Audio port. It will not crash immediately, only after the song is finished will the problem show up. After that I cannot connect though both ssh and web interface of DSM, inside the log I can see "Audio interface registered" but nothing else.

The USB Synology Audio port is manually assigned to DSM instead of working under passthrough mode because my CPU doesn't support it.

Inside the Audio port there are one C-Media CM102S+ audio chip and a GL850G USB 2.0 HUB Controller.

Any idea? Even how to debug it?

Thank you all the same.

Hi,

 

I have a problem with this image XPEnology DS3612xs DSM 4.3 build 3810 (ESXi v1.1)...

 

when I boot the VM, I see an error "Error internal NIC devices 1 does not equal to internal NIC number 4".

 

The main problem is, that ESX 5.5 and all other VMs stops responding to the network requests.

 

So I need to shutdown virtual xpenology via ESXi shell.

 

Any Idea??

Tried some more to resolve(adding multiple network adapters)...no success

 

it boots normally only if I add no network adapters. But this is not good as this is NAS and needs network :smile:

Change your grub.conf file

 

Has something like nwinf=4

 

Change the number to 1

 

Reboot

Hi,

 

I have just installed DSM4.3 on my Microserver N40L running ESXi 5.5 . Everything but raw HDD mapping seems to work fine. I followed this guide: http://forza-it.co.uk/esxi-5-1-using-raw-device-mappings-rdm-on-an-hp-microserver/ . Unfortunately the mapped HDD does not appear in Storage Manager, altough I can see it using fdisk -l as /dev/sdq (it's a 2TB Toshiba drive which has data on it / was used before in another XPEnology install). Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Disk /dev/sdq: 2000.3 GB, 2000398934016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243201 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

/dev/sdq1               1         311     2490240  fd Linux raid autodetect

I had a look at dmesg and looked for 'sdq' (the HDD which is detected by fdisk but not by Storage Manager) and 'sda' which is the smallish IDE HDD where DSM is installed. I could not find anything peculiar (most likely due to my noobness) but I in case anyone cares here it is: http://drose1.homelinux.com/dmesg.zip

Hi, I have a problem with LSI SAS 9211-8i.

 

I am using ESXI 5.5 and have enabled Direct passthrough for the LSI SAS and connected 8 Sata 2TB sata drives to the controller. When I start the Virtual machine it finds 8 harddisks but when I try to install the software it all ends up with that the information was lost.

 

According to the first post, LSI SAS 9211-8i was supported.

obermotz,

 

here is mine for 3TB disks, I wonder if your 510 size is an issue here
