I’ve been monitoring DSM Universal Search for quite a long time now. And what I noticed that it often fails. Therefor, searching CIFS from the macOS Finder often ends not using the preprocessed data ; hear it’s damn slow. So I decided to just turn it off. But when using Drive, it’s not that simple using DSM. You have to use the console.
After migrating my users from local DSM base to Directory Server, I ended with shares full of inconsistent permissions and ownership. Rather than clicking 10 000 times in DSM, I decided to do the stuff via SSH using syno console tools.
I have just discovered some issues with my previous article on OpenLDAP replication between Synology DSM and OpenBSD OpenLDAP.
In the end, it is not possible to log-in on the OpenBSD LDAP instance using the original userPassword. Short story: CRYPT seem to not be various-platform-compatible.
I want my OpenBSD 6.4 services to authenticate users from a remote LDAP server ; namely a Synology Directory Server (DSM 6.2.x). It turns out that this a standard OpenLDAP 2.4.x configured to accept replication refreshAndPersist mode. So let’s configure a Master / Slave Replication system between Synology and OpenBSD.
Synology DSM can be configured to send notifications on various events. It can use Email, SMS and Push Service. I usually use email notifications to check for status. But here’s how I configured SMS notification for critical events using the French mobile operator “Free Mobile”.
