RS 812+ with RX 410 expansion unit
Operating system

I have a Synology RS 812+ with expansion unit RX 410 running on DSM 6.2.4. Update 7, and as per Synology support, my NAS is not eligible for DSM 7.

With DSM 6.2.3. already out of support, I want to plan ahead early if this fate should hit DSM 6.2.4. one day.

My questions:
1. Is there a list published by Synology for the end-of-service-life of DSM 6.2.4.?
2. If I start to look for a used Synology system on eBay, do I find a list published by Synology of which NAS is eligible for which DSM release?
3. Would there be any way to tweak the system so DSM 7 would run on the RS 812+ anyway?

Thank you very much for your help!
Kind regards, Stefan
 
Is there a list published by Synology for the end-of-service-life of DSM 6.2.4.?

there are several categories in terms of DSM 7.x support.

x13-x15 Series (supporting only DSM 7.1)

  • XS Series: RS3413xs+, RS10613xs+, RS3614xs+, RS3614xs, RS3614RPxs, RC18015xs+, DS3615xs, DS2015xs
  • Plus Series: DS2413+, DS1813+, DS1513+, DS713+, RS2414RP+, RS2414+, RS814RP+, RS814+, DS214+, RS815RP+, RS815+, DS2415+, DS1815+, DS1515+, DS415+, DS215+
  • Value Series: RS814, RS214, DS414, DS214, DS214play, DS114, RS815, DS1515,DS715, DS415play, DS115
  • J Series: DS213j, DS414slim, DS414j, DS214se, DS215j, DS115j, DS216se
x16-x24 Series (DSM 7.2; with manual upgrades if model is x18 or older)

One thing to keep in mind is that any models from x16-x18 (including 18 series) while they do support 7.2, you will have to update manually, the DSM will not report 7.2 as an automatic update.
 
If I start to look for a used Synology system on eBay, do I find a list published by Synology of which NAS is eligible for which DSM release?
mind the series and you will be fine

Would there be any way to tweak the system so DSM 7 would run on the RS 812+ anyway?
None that I have tried to apply
