Synology DS411+II VGA-Connector ? Flash Image ?


Recommended Posts

Does anybody knows About a VGA-Connector of the DS411+II ?

at the MB there is a connector "J2" which seems to be such one.. 
as it is a DIL - 12 PIN Connector i want to know About the PIN-Layout?

 Has anybody stored oder can create an Image of the intenal Flash Memory (USBStation) ?
or could tell me which files to be there ?

Thank you?

it appears others have also inquired about the VGA port.  Here is a web page with information for another model but I am sure it applies.




The earlier models appear to have had a VGA port on the back of the units.  Synology probably changes it to a port on the board for use during manufacturing and to stop people from connecting to it.

Try this link then (at your own risk).




While it doesn't describe a 12 pin connector it may steer you in the right direction.


It is also possible others will chime in but most people aren't opening up their cases and trying to wire to the board.


What is your goal?  Just curious.

so this run without success…  🤔

But i think this is confirmation of my understanding..

The NAS dosn't find any Bootloader, cause in the BIOS is a  wrong Parameter for Boot-Device..


So i see the only chance is to have the Pinout of the obviously VGA Port
