@Great_Scott, I’m being honest. If someone has a different NAS that’s not a DL4100 then there should be options to create a job to on demand or on schedule, synchronise a network share with another network share or directory within a network share on another server that can be anything else that can be talked to using the SMB protocol.
I want to regularly synchronise several network shares from a DL4100 to a MyBookLive Duo. There is nothing on the DL4100’s UI dashboard that can do this do I have to dive into the DL4100’s operating system, mount a share on the MBLD as a directory on the DL4100 and then using rsync with appropriate parameters so one NAS synchronises with the other directly without involving a computer.
That is a missing killer feature that’s somehow been omitted from Cloud OS3.
If I was to look for features for a NAS for small business use or serious home use, any NAS that could do as I’ve just described would be a prime candidate of purchase.
So, one may have a DL4100 NAS as a primary server, but might wish to set-up a computer with FreeNAS, appropriatly configure it and set-up overnight jobs on the DL4100 to synchronise to the FreeNAS server. If the DL4100 dies for any reason then the FreeNAS server could be used to take the load.
I thought long and hard before I wrote my comment. I believe it to be true.
The DL4100 is a really nice NAS and does it’s job really well. I’m quite impressed . It’s just that someone missed out on implementing a seriously useful feature.
It’s something that could be rectified by a future update? Nudge… Nudge… Wink… Wink…
I think I did open such a thread a while back. Will check.
