SRM 1.2.5 is the operating system of the Synology RT2600ac and MR2200ac router. It’s mandatory to upgrade since multiple security vulnerabilities have been fixed: [Synology-SA-22:03] and [Synology-SA-20:26]. The 1.2.5-8227-5 SRM update will be available for selected regions within the following weeks, although the release time in each region may vary slightly.
Log in into your RT2600ac router then go to Control Panel / System / Manual SRM Update. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Select and upload the file you have previously download at the beginning of this article. Follow the instructions in the image below.
After you click OK at STEP 2 a new pop-up warning message will open. The message says the following:
Please note that the update to SRM 1.3 brings the following changes:
1. Some features on SRM 1.2 might be adjusted or removed on SRM 1.3. Please refer to this page for further information.
2. Backup configuration files created by SRM 1.2.5 and below cannot be use to restore the configuration of SRM 1.3.
Note: At present the pop-up warning message has nothing to do with SRM version 1.3 because we are going to install SRM version 1.2.5-8227-5 and not SRM version 1.3 – This message that we’re seeing today is a clear intention of the launch of SRM 1.3 for the RT2600ac in the following months.
After you click Yes at STEP 3 a new pop up window will appear with the following message: The system cannot be shut down during the update. Do you want to continue? Click Yes. Wait approximatively 5-10 minutes for the update to be completed. Follow the instructions in the image below.
If everything went well, you will see the new SRM Version 1.2.5-8227-5 correctly installed.
