Hi,

 

Is it possible to install XPENology on Synologies Virtual Machine manager?

J.

 

I’ve installed XPE on my ds3617xs.  Synology VMM can only import OVA format. 

 

Process is:

Create a VM using VMware Workstation Pro using Juns 6.2 loader, then export it to OVF. 

Import the VM into VMware Fusion (MAC) and then export VM to OVA format. 

Import the OVA on Syno’s Virtual Machine Manager. 

Power on VM, use Assistant to look for the Syno, then install PAT file.

I know this is an old thread ... but I'll give it a shot anyway. @rgarjr: I followed your simple process to the letter and the import works nicely. But when I try to power it up, it just tells me "Failed to power on the virtual machine". Do I need to map any ISO files after the import? Any other suggestions?

Thank you so much @rgarjr , that was so much more than I could hope for :) Much appreciated ... I'll get working on right away :)

 

Got a bit further already .. now it's complaining about memory (allocated 8GB to host and 4GB to guest); I'll try and increase the availably memory on my Xpenology host.

I am a bit worried though that it might be due to the host running DSM 6.1.6-15266 Update 1. 

I am working on it :)
