    Beware: ABB will silently stop working if SSL certificate is changed

    I am positing a warning for others: If the SSL certificate on your NAS is changed, all of your Active Backup for Business tasks will stop working. But it will not show up as a failure! The tasks will still show as "successful", just as of some date in the past! This is a huge issue, as you...
