Lights-Out works on the new Mac Silicons! If the x86 emulator Rosetta is already installed, the installation runs as usual. If Rosetta is not yet installed, then the following procedure is recommended:
- Download and install the Lights-Out Client.
- Then manually start the Lights-Out.Client.JoinServer application via Applications, Lights-Out CLient. Now the Mac Silicon should offer to install Rosetta.
- Install Rosetta and then be sure to reboot the Mac Silicon once.
- After the restart, run Lights-Out.Client.JoinServer again and connect to the server, done.
Synology DSM 7.0 Beta
With DSM 7.0 Beta, Synology introduces a change that prohibits root permissions for packages. This currently affects both Mono and Lights-Out itself.
For Mono there will surely be an update from the SynoCommunity. For Lights-Out, on the other hand, it is unclear from today’s perspective whether Synology will allow an exception here.
Therefore, here is a clear warning: If you use your NAS productively with Lights-Out, you should refrain from a quick change to DSM 7.0!
We wish you and your loved ones a wonderful, reflective holiday season and, above all, good health in the New Year!
