Synology 5.1 to 6.## Anyone with Experience?


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,


I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. I bought my HP Microserver Proliant Gen8 a few years ago and installed a copy of Synology DSM 5.1 using Xpenoboot.


Its been running great for all this time but I can no longer update Plex because my version is so old. I wondered if anyone had experience of going from 5.1 to 6.## and could help me work out how to do it?


I have searched around and the only tutorials I can seem to find involve updating a virtual machine version of it.


I may instead installed an SSD to the ODD Sata port and run Ubuntu Server off of it instead, assuming I can retain my ext4 RAID5 drive configuration untouched. That way I know things will be more up date, I will lose the user friendliness of DSM though.
