So the GoFlex home UI is pretty crap, it sure as hell doesn’t have a rsync deamon. Until now. This summer…. etc
So I want to send Synology backups to the old GoFlex NAS.
Here’s how I did it:
Take Drive plastic off, replace 2TB drive with 3TB drive.
Reformat. (and gain SSH root).
Install and config rsync .
- Install package manager.
- Add rsync:
sudo ipkg install rsync
- Config rsync daemon. In mine I set the path to a symlink for a users private shared folder, and added settings for that user.
I started the daemon with
sudo /opt/etc/init.d/S57rsyncd start
and played with this until it was reachable from my Synology (some celebrations may have been had)
- I made a symlink for the rsync opt init script in the system init folder:
sudo ln -s /home/opt/etc/init.d/S57rsyncd /etc/rc.d/init.d/rsyncd
- Then symlinked that with a startup link in runlevel 3.
sudo ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/rsyncd /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S57rsyncd
- Holy Macrol, it appears to work!
