disk back-ups sorted, new scanning computer sorted – happily looking forward

Integrated my “new” Synology NAS into my back-up concept in practice; I can of course back up at home on the LAN, but I can also back up over WAN (which is the more crucial variant) – rsync-wise “of course”, i.e. sort of “differentially”. And for the time being rsync-ing to my NAS seems to… Continue reading disk back-ups sorted, new scanning computer sorted – happily looking forward

my 1st concurrent backups from my Mac and my openSUSE Linux VM to the Synology DS213+

With the “alternative rsync” (see my older article on rsync and Synology!) things started looking a little more successful. Apparently a lot of files by the name “@eaDir” get created “automagically” in various subdirectories. And as I usually start rsync with “–delete-after”, they all get removed in the end. I am not sure, whether the… Continue reading my 1st concurrent backups from my Mac and my openSUSE Linux VM to the Synology DS213+

“rsync over ssh” to a Synology NAS – IPKG, opkg

Nota Bene / before: This is the text, that helps me personally re-installing rsync, whenever it magically disappears, maybe caused by an DSM update. True, I should bring a little structure into this article. I never ever care about rsyncd, as I am doing “rsync over ssh”;  any activity suggested regarding rsyncd does not concern me.… Continue reading “rsync over ssh” to a Synology NAS – IPKG, opkg

my new NAS (and so much more): Synology DS213+

DS213+ Products – Synology Inc. Network Attached Storage The box makes itself known as diskstation.local resp. DiskStation on my LAN. (Reliability …) Of course it deserves a “1 Gbit/s” on my FRITZ!Box.

my new file server

Producers synology.com (preferred) qnap drobo (good, but too expensive) They all offer some kind of flexible disk mirroring with non-identical disks resp. disk sizes. Main criteria: mini tower, not rack … My colleague’s good advice: Use Samsung disks! Apparently “they all” have hardware compatibility lists, i.e. they don’t work with every disk. I think, it… Continue reading my new file server
