Why can't I perform Network Backup from rsync compatible server to Synology Product?
To perform Network Backup from rsync compatible server, please make sure the following items are set up correctly:
- On the DiskStation, the Network Backup service has been enabled. The option can be found on the "Main Menu > Backup and Restore > Network Backup Service" page.
- When performing backup, you are using "root" or "rsync" for the DiskStation user name and “NetBackup” for the backup module, for example: rsync -a --timeout=600 /volume1/public firstname.lastname@example.org::NetBackup/test/, where 192.168.1.81 stands for the IP address of the DiskStation.
- The version of the installed rsync is version 2.6.6 onward, or rsync protocol version 29 onward. To obtain the correct rsync version, please go to: http://rsync.samba.org/.
