I have had problems with Windows network drives on start-up. The drive is permanent (I set it up through explorer / map network drive), but after a reboot shows its status as disconnected in explorer until it is actually opened. I work round it with a start-up script containing if not exist x:\*.* start /min explorer x:\. Put this command into, for example, ...

Stopping a simple single disk partition resize is definitely not safe, IMHO stopping a RAID expansion could only be worst. So, in my opinion: no, stopping a RAID expansion is not safe! (Unless someone at Synology say otherwise) I don't really know if there is a way to stop it. If you really need to stop the Raid expansion, try to make a full backup on ...

By noticing that the disk space freed up on a 5-minute cycle, we were able to identify the problem. It's a behavior that may be unique to the file system we're using, the XFS file system. XFS allows you to specify a pre-allocated file size. We mounted the file-system with an allocsize=1G, given that this file system was built with large files in mind and ...

Any reason why you have to have a "combined" NAS + router? Just buy a switch and NAS separately and attach all nodes to the switch. What are you trying to accomplish?

The Cheap way is to take any old Tower PC with at least 4 bays and 4 sata ports, put two ethernet ports in it and run (LInux) Samba for your file (NAS) services and iptables for your firewall. You will have full gigabit speeds to the inside interface of the box. You can run raid on your disks. You can even configure openvpn and/or run a webserver on the ...

Ok, based on what you've said here's my guess/suggestions... Assumptions/guesses about configuration: Your "Diskstation" NAS is using DHCP to get it's IP. Your DHCP is being handed out by your router, and in those DHCP settings it's giving out itself as the DNS server for clients to use. Your router is aware of the host names of the devices that requested ...

The common OS in use for web server systems is Linux as part of the Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP (LAMP) stack. Linux comes in many distributions, and the most popular for this application is Ubuntu. If you could get Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) that would be ideal, but I doubt you need that kind of power.

There was a security = share to make the whole share read only or read / write to everyone in older versions of Samba but it doesn't exist anymore. You want to look at guest only and guest user configuration parameters to remap unknown users (no password typed) to a configured guest account. Machines that are in a domain will always pop up the username / ...

For this I am going to assume there are 12 disks in the array, and each are 1TB big. That means there is 10TB of storage. This is for example, provided you are not using more than 6 disks (6TB) worth of storage, then it doesn't matter what size they are. Oblig disclaimer: None of this may be supported by Synology, so I would check with them if this ...
