Hi,

I have been trying to run Daminion Server under Wine in an Ubuntu VM, but without success. :negative:

I installed
  • the latest Wine (3.0-rc3),
  • mono (.NET framework),
  • winetricks and
  • wsh57 (with winetricks)

but I'm stuck. :help: :dash2:

Daminion Server installation fails in two separate issues:
  • PostgreSQL installation
  • Missing certificates

The PostgreSQL installation fails with message "Unable to write inside TEMP environment variable path". I suspect that Wine fails to run a .vbs script inside the installation. See https://[email protected]

Near the end of the installation the installation complains about missing certificates and asks to manually install Windows Server 2003 Admin Tools. When I downloaded them from Microsoft website, and tried to install them, they wouldn't install on Win7. The installer wanted an XP Pro.

Juha,

I admire your determination but am unable to help.

Stick at it buddy, We're all rooting for you!

So here's the spec of the latest "under powered" NAS from Synology - which I might upgrade to next year

I'm not going to repeat the plea for a Synology Package - that's clearly never going to happen.

No, the point is, this new box is certified to run a Windows 2016 Server VM. With a quad core 2.1GHz processor and up to 32GB RAM it will easily perform that task as well as all the other apps I run, giving me a one-box solution. The downside is I'm going to have to learn another OS

It's not cheap, but then neither is my current DS916+ 8GB / DX513 expansion combo.

What do you think?

I don't know how much you like to tinker around but have you heard of Xpenology? It is an open source version of the Synology DSM software. Basically you install the Synology operating system on your own hardware.

It might be worth taking a look at if you have a computer that could be temporarily repurposed while you try it out.

There are several links online and videos on Youtube.

Here is one to get you started if you have an interest:

Hi Frank

Yes I have heard of Xpenology and I was interested until I found this on a site:

So we decided to directly ask Synology France the question and here are their answers: " You should know that the use of XPEnology is illegal, and violates the intellectual property of Synology while infringing its copyright. And the manufacturer says: " It is not allowed to install DSM on another server and can pose legal problems. DSM consists of two parts: GPL and our proprietary software. Finally, " Synology has not granted third-party rights to install our own software on non-Synology servers. "


Plus, since I rely heavily on Synology packages and their Support I decided to play safe

I saw a couple of videos on Youtube where people had power issues with fairly new Synology devices (home/small business sized).

Because of that and how they seem to be under powered, I thought the Xpenology software might be a way to go. I have not seen anything saying the Xpenology software was illegal so that is new to me.
