    VMM on DSM7.1beta?

    Noticed that VMM has got a few changes for DSM 7.1beta, updated QEMU etc.. Anyone tried it and noticed any differences in performance? Last time I tried it on my DS918+ performance was pretty terrible with Windows 10 (but pretty ok with Windows 7).

    NAT-ed VM subnet

    Pretty new to the Synology VMM so apologies if this sounds trivial... In most VM environments I have worked with there is usually a way to setup a NAT-ed environment where the VM would get a private subnet with a local DHCP server and a router which would bridged with the external IP of the...

    How can I access the files from a crashed virtual machine?

    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...

    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?
