    Hi everyone. I am running a ds 918+ which had a virtual machine also running dsm. After swapping around some hard drives the virtual machine seems to have crashed. I can't remember exactly what the error was, but it was something about a cluster crash. It gave me an option to repair the...

    Info VMM cluster merges free Virtual DSM licences

    I'm just playing about with VMM with my two plus series NAS. The aim is to have a vDSM 6 machine for anything I may miss from DSM 7 and also to remind myself of its features, if someone here asks a question. By running VMM on both NAS it is then just a matter of opening it on one of the NAS and...

    keep vm images encrypted

    The share manager allows per-share encryption, but the VM manager installs its images directly to a volume. Is it possible to keep VM images encrypted in storage? Does DSM 7 resolve any earlier limitations relevant to this matter?

    Hello, Is there a way to get sound on a virtual linux machine. No sound directly decode by the VMM because i think it's impossible but can be via a remote connection. I know, for example that on a Windows machine, via RDP the sound can be decoded on the remote station. Thank you

    TL;DR: "How do I mount/open a vdisk for a VM that doesn't boot?" I want to access files directly from inside the vdisk without it running the VM that was on it. I don't care if I have to access it from Synology NAS CLI or if I have to copy the vdisk image to my local machine to do so. More...
