  • Updating Synology DSM

    I have two Synology boxes, an older DS212 and a DS1815+ that I use for my lab and other purposes. They were in need of an update andI thought I would put together a simple post about upgrading Synology to the latest DSM. This process covers updating from Synology DSM 5.2-5592 Update 2 to Synology DSM 6.0-7321 Update 6

    Synology Update 6 release brought a ton of new features and fixes, you can read more about that here.

    Some highlights

    • MailPlus / MailPlus Server – all new private cloud mail server
    • New Collaboration Tools – SpreadSheets and Note station
    • SSD Cache – Greater support for SSD cache
    • Data Protection – snapshot replication
    • Virtual DSM & Docker – Containers (This is probably the feature I am looking forward to the most)
    • Cloud & File Syncing – more
    • 64 Bit Architecture
    • Modularization
    • New Accessibility Features

    Now onto the upgrade process..
