Synology DS412+ NFS Share limitations?



  • Anyone know if there are any restrictions on concurrent NFS shares with Synology NAS units? I seem to be having an issue where I can only have one accessible NFS share at a time or the second NFS share is sketchy when it comes to access while the first NFS share works flawlessly.



  • @Bill-Kindle
    That's a good question. None that I'm aware of. However, I typically have a single share with multiple hosts connected to that one share.

    The single share has crossed my mind these past two days that I've been working with this issue and it just seems to be unstable when setting up more than one NFS share. I think I need to apply the kiss principle here and leave just a single NFS share. I can edit the vfstab file and create the mount points to be whatever I want instead of trying to create two NFS shares, just didn't want to do it that way if I didn't have to.



  • That's very odd. I'm surprised to see any concurrency issues with NFS in that way.

    I know and that's what has me puzzled. I'm firing up a Linux system in the morning to eliminate it being a problem with the Unix systems. I only have to hang onto them for about another year and they are done, our software won't be supported on Unix any longer for this particular customer so those boxes are loosing relevance quickly.

    What non-Linux UNIX do you run?

    I have 1 SunOS 5.9 and 1 5.10 system. Just took a even older system offline last week.



  • Well, after more trial and error, I've found that retroactively enabling NFS on a existing share through the GUI does not apply permissions properly, even after a reboot. I had to manually connect to BusyBox, run CHMOD 777 sharename in order to get it to work on existing shares.

    Create a new share and enable NFS from the onset, no problem.

    Wow. On Sparc I hope.

    I believe they are. Whatever Ford required us to have in order to test our software that they use in Production OEM settings. That changes at the end of the month, they are switching to all Windows x64 systems. We have to maintain these two boxes long enough to satisfy legacy support for a few other customers but they've also been put on notice to migrate their Solaris software to Windows, because we've for the most part stopped building new releases for Solaris because all of the major CAD vendors have stopped supporting *nix and are only releasing Windows software.
