Has anyone seen information about using a DSM 6 NAS as a destination 'Synology' target for a DSM 7 NAS's Hyper Backup?

My DS215j NAS is running DSM 7 beta. It's only real function is as a Mac Time Machine server but I am testing bits and pieces too. I thought I may as well backup it up even though it's a small job to rebuild and I'm ambivalent to Time Machine's usefulness.

My destination is the DS218+ running DSM 6 and wanted to use 'Synology > Remote NAS device' as the destination type. Once selected it needs to be logged in to then select the target Shared Folder. But clicking the Login button doesn't work: the cursor spins but no login prompt. However, this task type works from the DS1520+ (DSM 6) to DS218+ (DSM 6).

Starting again and using 'File Server > rsync' from the DS215j (DSM 7) to DS218+ (DSM 6) now works and the back is now progressing.

The only real issue here is that Hyper Backup Vault on the DS218+ doesn't know about the rsync task. Maybe there is some issue with HBV not recognising DSM 7?

Yes this works. I have tested it when DSM7 got out. So DSM7 via HB to DSM6 as a target. Works confirmed.

Thx. Hmm, wonder why it's not working for me? Well it's not a biggie.

And I'd forgotten that DSM 7 now has DSM config being backed up to Synology C2. That was my main objective. My memory is going :unsure:
