Re: New Product Announced - DS1618+

Hi! We bought a DS1618+. We're very disappointed... The vibrations are so extreme that discstation killed five of six HDD...

Re: DSM 6.2-23739 (final) is out

Is there any reason NOT to upgrade to 6.2 now?

Thanks.

Re: NAS for family backup.

Keep in mind that the slim series only hold 2.5" hard drives (normally used in laptops).
VERY limited hard drive capacity !!!

Re: Backup issue using Shared Folder Sync and rsync

I figured out the solution.
There is an additional "Advanced permission" tab (in Control Panel->Shared Folder->nas) that has "Advanced Share Permissions" that must be modified.
They do this to make sure that you cannot corrupt the shared data !!!

Re: Backup issue using Shared Folder Sync and rsync

Yeah, there is a 60 page topic about 1815+ units dying. Unfortunately I also have one. About to replace it soon. I don't think you should really avoid High Availability just because you have a unit that is know to die within a few years. I have no personal experience with the whole HA thing, but fr...

Re: Backup issue using Shared Folder Sync and rsync

I tried SHA with two DS1815+'s about a year ago.
One died within a month !!!
I think it was the processor issue.
They do not seem to be sufficiently robust to support 24/7 operation.
When used individually they sleep most of the time.
In SHA they are continuously up pinging each other.

Backup issue using Shared Folder Sync and rsync

I use Shared Folder Sync on my primary NAS to perform near real time, once a day and manual back up to 3 other NAS drives (the manual backup target being normally turned off). Each of the other NAS drives have rsync enabled. My problem is that the intent is to replace my primary NAS drive with one o...

Re: Intel C2000 Series Failures

Replaced another 1515+ model last night under an preventative RMA. As I said previously I took pictures of the old/new systems. This time I did find that synology did in fact add a transistor to the board. They did not add it to the outside of the motherboard but the inside, which makes it a little...

Re: Intel C2000 Series Failures

The old motherboard has a 12 pin thru hole area at the bottom right that would normally be used for a connector. They used to add the pull up resistor across two of those holes. The new MB picture does not show that area. Have they removed the 12 holes in the MB there in the new MB? Have you verifie...

Re: DS 1517+

I would recommend the upcoming DS1618+ which is supposed to debut in May.
Six bays instead of five.
Upgrading the Atom C2538 used in the current DS1517+ and DS1817+ to the Atom C3538 processor.

Re: Intel C2000 Series Failures

Hey guys, just wanted to confirm that the replacement systems coming from Synology have the same bug, right? The only solution to get rid of a system that may fail you because of the CPU is that I should sell the 415+ I have and get another system without the C2000 CPU, correct? They DO NOT have th...

Re: Diskstation Backup

You can never have too many backups. My primary NAS backs up to a second NAS continuously using rsync. My primary NAS also backs up to a third NAS once a day using rsync. Have two other NAS boxes that I back up to periodically and are left powered off. Alternate between them so one has data from mon...

Re: Issues using a Hot Spare

I wanted to add the knowledge that shutting down the NAS is a matter of choice, but not necessary. Its designed to be on when you remove and add drives. SATA hard drives are 'hot swapabble' and 100% designed for inserting with the NAS-server powered on. True, but by shutting the NAS down before swa...
