2. November 2016 Kategorie: Backup & Security, Hardware, geschrieben von: caschy

Artikel_SynologyGefühlsmäßig ist DSM 6.0 noch gar nicht so lange final, da steht schon wieder das nächste größere Update DSM 6.1 ins Haus. Wieder einmal können sich die Waghalsigen eine Betaversion des DiskStation Managers installieren, der für verschiedenen NAS-Systeme von Synology zur Verfügung steht. Synology hat eine dedizierte Seite ins Netz gestellt, die nicht nur über die kompatiblen Geräte informiert, sondern auch Informationen zu den Neuerungen und etwaigen Problemen bereithält.

So muss man wahrscheinlich in diesem Blog nicht noch einmal darauf hinweise, dass beim Einsatz einer Betasoftware so einiges schief gehen kann und dass ihr vor einem Test logischerweise irgendwie eure Daten sichert. Synology selber teilt zudem mit, dass man nicht gewährleisten kann, dass Pakete von Dritt-Anbietern einwandfrei funktionieren, auch Pakete wie Time Backup und HiDrive Backup sind nicht funktional. Solltet ihr euch jetzt auf die Socken machen wollen, dann findet ihr alle Informationen und Downloads auf dieser Seite. Eine deutsche Informationsseite zum Thema befindet sich ebenfalls im Netz.

What’s New in DSM 6.1 Beta
  1. File Self-Healing
    • DSM is now capable of detecting and repairing silent data corruption if your Synology NAS meets the following criteria:
      • Running Btrfs file system
      • Built on RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10, or non-1 disk SHR
      • Without any SSD read-write cache mounted (This limitation will be removed in the coming release.)
  2. Shared Folder Encryption
    • In addition to encrypting a shared folder as you create it, you can now encrypt an existing shared folder anytime you want.
    • With Key Manager, you can now use a USB storage device as a physical key to mount encrypted shared folders automatically without having to memorize all the encryption keys.
    • Removed the „Mount automatically on startup“ function from the edit page of shared folders.
  3. Resource Monitor
    • IT administrators will receive notifications regarding performance issues of the CPU, memory, disks, or LUNs (available on XS+ and XS models).
    • I/O throughput of each process can now be monitored in Task Manager (available on models with Intel 64-bit processors).
    • Added the service-based view, allowing you to monitor resource usage of each service and application (available on models with Intel 64-bit processors).
  4. File Services
    • Windows File Services and Mac File Services have been renamed SMB and AFP, respectively.
    • SMB service is now running Samba 4.4.
    • Supports Time Machine via SMB3 in Mac OS 10.12 and above.
    • Supports Bonjour service, allowing you to back up data to multiple shared folders via Time Machine.
    • Supports sparse files over the SMB protocol to enhance usage efficiency of file system space and network bandwidth.
    • You can now restore to a previous version from Windows Explorer when mounting your home folder via the SMB protocol.
    • After enabling Btrfs fast clone in SMB advanced settings, files can be copied at a faster speed when the source and destination are within the same Btrfs volume.
  5. Storage Manager
    • RAID type can now be changed from SHR-1 to SHR-2, providing greater flexibility of storage expansion and better data protection. Note: Depending on your disk configuration, two additional disks may be required when changing your RAID type from SHR-1 to SHR-2. For more information, please refer to DSM Help.
    • Provides more types of disk health status to help you grasp the health info of your disks.
    • You can now migrate a single volume to a disk group and then create multiple volumes while using SHR (more flexiable for models built on the 32-bit architecture with a single volume size limit of 16TB) .
  6. Flexible Update Options
    • You can apply important fixes without unnecessary system reboots.
    • In case a reboot is required to complete an update, the system will notify you via Email and in DSM, allowing you the flexibility to reboot at a time of your choice.
  7. Service Modularization
    • Some of DSM’s built­-in features have been modularized into packages to ensure better system maintenance and update flexibility.
    • Modularization in DSM 6.1 Beta includes USB Copy, File Station, and File indexing.
  8. Package Center
    • Automatically updates incompatible packages after the installation of DSM 6.1 Beta to boost your upgrading experience.

What’s New in Packages

  1. SMI-S Provider
    • Introduces SMI-S Provider, optimized for Microsoft’s System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM)
      • SMI-S allows an IT administrator to manage multiple Synology NAS servers as storage destinations via SCVMM’s centralized user interface.
  2. RADIUS Server
    • The new cache mechanism supports offline authentication when Active Directory is unavailable.
    • In addition to selecting only one authentication source, you can now select local system accounts plus one additional source against which RADIUS Server authenticates users:
      • Local system accounts + AD domain accounts
      • Local system accounts + LDAP service accounts
    • Supports TLS 1.2 protocols to enhance the security on web browsers.
  3. PHP 7.0
    • Introduces PHP 7.0, the latest PHP version, which has a much better performance than previous ones.
  4. Directory Server
    • Supports Nested Group to provide better management methods.
  5. File Station
    • Supports tile view for browsing files.
    • Supports browsing history as a drop-down list at a quick glance.
    • File path is now editable and supports autocomplete to help you locate folders effortlessly. Minor bug fixes.
  6. Apache HTTP Server 2.2
    • Apache server has become an independent package to allow more flexible choices.
