Just saw this post rs407, 3.1 fixes the timeout to esx when you reboot the synology. Before you had to re-add the synology every time due to the synology disconnecting.
I had a intrim .sh patch that fixed it before 3.1 came out
I found this after the fix which proabally would have helped. But it is nice that they fixed it.http://miketrellosblog.arcadecab.com/20 ... on-reboot/
Also at some point I noticed that synology now has ext4 for the filesystem. This seems to be a good idea for vmwarehttp://blog.peacon.co.uk/file-system-ch ... fs-servers
I have had some delete or move big vmdks issues before with the synology 810. This may help it now. It wasnt a big issue before but a few timeouts here and there.
Another good article.http://deinoscloud.wordpress.com/2010/1 ... atastores/
However I would trade a little perf loss with ext4 for stability.
Now how do we turn off the OPSlock on the synology to get some more perf?
EDIT *** just found out OPSlock as referred to the deinoscloud article is located in
Admin Menu\Network Services\Win/Mac OS, option labeled "Optimize CIFS database operations" as per this link.viewtopic.php?f=106&t=3485
However not sure if it applies to NFS shares as the wording refers to CIFS.
