Synology released DSM 5.1-5021 Update 2. This is a bug and vulnerability fix upgrade, such as upgrading NTP to version 4.2.8 to resolve multiple vulnerabilities. Other enhancements include stability on file-copying to USB drives as well as stability of QuickConnect connection to Surveillance Station.
In case you missed it somehow, VMware released ESXi 5.5 Update 1 this week. In the last update I also used the command line to upgrade my Intel NUC hosts, which worked flawlessly. This time I’ve updated via command line as well and this is how.
ESXi 5.5 was just released general availability (GA) on Sunday (9/22) and I’m itching to upgrade the home lab to run the latest version with all it’s goodies. I wanted to try upgrading my hosts without having to go through the same process that I followed setting up ESXi on the NUC in the first place, injecting custom NIC drivers, etc.
Enter the command line…
Move all VM’s from the host and then put the host into Maintenance Mode.
Go to the Configuration tab > Security Profile and Enable SSH under Services.
Under Firewall, enable httpClient (outbound http).
Open PuTTY (or other SSH client) and SSH into your host.
