    Installing MailCow on Synology NAS

    In this thread I still find it too expensive to be able to add 5 mailboxes to Synology MailPlus. I've heard MailCow is a good alternative as it provides an entire mailsuite like MailPlus. Prepare your system - mailcow: dockerized documentation Mailcow on Synology So, this can't run in...

    VM performance

    Anyone upgraded from a 916+ to a 920+? I installed Windows 10 into a VM on my 916+ with 8 GB RAM and a SSD and it "works", slow but OK, i do NOT need it for real work. The CPU in the 920+ is 2-3 times faster than then one of the 916+. Do you feel/see the speed difference in the VM?

    VMM Pro & Virtual DSM Virtual Machine Manager Requests to load driver

    I created a new VM with Windows 10 Pro Everytime I launch the installation of Windows 10 Pro using an ISO file the installation prompts me to provide the drivers for the type of hard disk I want to use. I believe that VMM expects me to provide the drivers for Sata, IDE and SCSI to continue...

    Solved VM Guest routing out to www?

    Trying here, before asking the Wordpress community. I have a Wordpress instance set up on a VM on the Synology. (It talks to a db on separate host, but that shouldn't matter.) Internally it works fine. One the internet modem I have forwarded 8080 to 80 on the VM. From an external host I can...

    Solved VMM: Storage Degraded

    VMM is reporting that the storage allocated for it is 'Degraded'. I've searched about this but only been able to find articles about the 'main storage pool', not the one allocated in VMM. I've exported the VMs I want to keep. So should I just delete/remove the storage pool, create a new one...

    VMM on DS920+, anyone?

    Has any lucky owner of the DS920+ been able to try running Windows10 in VMM? It's insanely slow on my DS918+ (the VMM is even running from an SSD), would be interesting to see if it's usable on the new model..

But VDSM can...

    Setup & run a VM on an external SSD?

    I have a spare USB3 external SSD, and wanted to try setting up a VM on it (in the thinking that it might be a little faster than on the Synology's spinning disks). After plugging the SDD into the Synology then creating a new VM it only shows the option to use the storage I created previously...

    I have a DS1817+ running VMM with 3 VMs. I was originally using the VMM beta which enabled HA and snapshot replication to my second DS1817+.
