User Name Format Restrictions

Postby SS at Synology » Wed Mar 28, 2012 2:01 pm

We are going to be setting up a DS212+ for use in a 17 PC environment with 10 users that will have NAS access based on permissions. I would like to use first initial last name all lower case. Does anyone know if there is a character limitation on usernames? Thanks

A simple string of latin characters, all lowercase should be absolutely fine as username.
No longer using Synology NAS, moved to more open source solutions.
DS-106j > DS-210j > DS-411
