Synology has released an update to the beta release of version 5.2 of Disk Station Manager. Synology DSM is the management software that runs on several of the company’s NAS products. The Disk, Cube and Rack Stations offer more than just extra storage space. In this way, backups of all clients on the network can also be made and files can be downloaded via http, ftp, bittorrent, usenet and emule, so that, for example, energy-hungry PCs can switch off at night while the download just comes in. Furthermore, audio and video files can be streamed over the network via the built-in iTunes server, a dynamic website can be hosted using PHP and MySQL and the device can act as a print server.
To be able to install version 5.2, at least version 5.0 must be present. Furthermore, it is only suitable for the NAS models whose type number ends with 10 or higher. For the other conditions and the various downloads, see this page† You can play with a live demo here† In version 5.2 we find support for smb3 File Station can now also address various cloud storage services and especially the backup functionality, Cloud Station and Photo Station have been significantly improved. Furthermore, the ‘heavier’ hubs can now use Docker. A handful of issues have been fixed in this update.
- Fixed an issue where it could take a long time for the system to respond when opening files via the SMB protocol.
- Fixed an issue where some services could not function normally when a fixed IP address is assigned to an unused LAN port.
- Fixed an issue where backup tasks would fail when upgrading from DSM 5.0.
- Fixed an issue where the usage of memory could become abnormally high when performing backup tasks.
