Synology DiskStation Manager 7 (DSM 7)

Synology DiskStation Manager 7 (DSM 7) was released on 29th June 2021. Right now, the upgrading process is still manual. You have to go to Synology Download Center, input your Synology NAS model, and choose your current DSM version to upgrade from.

I upgraded both my DS920+ and DS1621+, and my current DSM version for both is DSM 6.2.4. After clicking download, it will prompt you to download a .pat file. The file size is about 340MB.

Installing Ubuntu Server On Synology NAS

Before we start the installation of Ubuntu Server to Synology NAS, you will need to download the Ubuntu Server ISO image from Ubuntu.com. As of the time of writing, the version of Ubuntu Server stands at 20.10, and the file size is almost 1GB.

Once the download started, you can log in to your Synology NAS’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) to install the Virtual Machine Manager from Package Center.

Changing Circles.Life Physical SIM to Circles.Life eSIM

Circles.Life launched its eSIM service last week to both new and existing customers. To be precise, new customers can apply for Circles.Life eSIM from 21st July 2020, while existing customers can switch to eSIM from 23rd July 2020.

I have issues finding out how to switch from my Circles.Life Physical SIM to Circles.Life eSIM as the UI was not intuitive on its website and mobile app.
