I know this is a thread for the Mirror, but any chance this will run on Gen 1? I ended up installing DSM5 on said device, but DSM6 would be nice. Since you mention LEDs is it a known bug that the LED doesn’t work properly? It just stayes solid white and I just have to keep trying to sign in until it lets me.
I use different method for gen1 device (Minimum from Synology, max from WD), so in DSM5 for “wdmc gen1” Led control not realized.
For WDMC Mirrot i use better way (Maximum from Synology, nothing from WD). Different problems, but easy to porting (~50 lines of code changed in kernel for first success boot).
And bad news: i exchange my wdmc gen1 to gen2 and now i can’t make/test new DSM builds.
Hi, me again. So overnight I plugged my WD Gen 1 running DSM5 directly into my PC for a faster initial sync of my 2TB drive (after it got wiped when I installed DSM5). Today when I set it back up to run normally I got this screen instead of the usual one. I think I forgot to turn autoupdate off and now that DSM6 is available it tried to update but failed. Any idea how to get things back up and running?
I tried the “debian-jessie-firmware-test” from your Gdrive. And the problem in the manual (If you see both red (purple) hdd leds - something went wrong. Connect to WDMC via Telnet and repair (Or prepare disks manually).) happened to me.
How can I repair/prepare disk manually? Do you have some instructions for that?
Recovery package only for Gen1 device. For other WDMC’s need different methods.
About Debian for Mirror - Press and hold reset button while led blinking (release, when stop blinking).
After that - wait ~5-10 min while HDD formats, then try to connect via SSH.
Note: There is no drivers for Fan or Led’s. So, its not controlled (Fan runs at max. speed, possible to control manually - read info in Developing section on my GDrive/site)
I did manage to get it to work, this might help others:
You should wait when booting when the HDD1 led turns from blue to purple, then you should push the reset-button and hold it until the HDD LEDs are blue again. You should reset the device after the process is finished; it will show a blue power LED, purple HDD1 led and red HDD2 LED. After the last reset the device will finish the installation!!
