There are a lot of Synology errors
out there. Way too many, right?
You as a sysadmin know that for sure – drive errors, problems with wireless products, and security issues.
Your Synology setup sometimes drives you crazy.
Here's a list of the most common errors around Synology and the proven solution to them:
- Error code 38: drives cannot be found
- Error code 384: My Cloud, My Cloud Home, or My Passport Wireless products
are not detected under Windows 10 Network
- Synology security issues
- Network error: Please check your network settings
With PRTG you’ll never have to deal with Synology errors again. Forever.
The error can lie in the drive slot on the Synology product or the drive itself.
- First, shut down your Synology product
- In case you dispose of empty drives, place them in your Synology product and try installing DSM again.
- In case of 2 or more bays in your Synology product, switch the order of the drives and try to install DSM again.
- Use a manufacturer's diagnostic tool to run a disc scan in order to find out if the drives are healthy. Format the drives again and insert them again in your Synology product.
Thanks to the SNMP Synology Physical Disk Sensor of PRTG Network Monitor, you can monitor a physical disk in a Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) via SNMP.
It can provide you with the information about the temperature and the disk status.
This problem occurs because the "network browse" has been disabled on Windows 10 v1709 and higher. Another problem can be that SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support has been deactivated on Windows 10, Windows 10 Fall Creators Update version 1709 and higher.
The SMB 1.0 protocol is important for the Computer Browse service to populate the Windows Explorer Network node ("Network Neighborhood"). This legacy protocol does not route, has limited security and is long deprecated. As this service does not work without SMB 1.0, it is removed when SMB 1.0 is disabled.
- Open the search bar on Windows 10, type "Windows features" in the search bar and by double-click turn Windows features off and on
- Look for SMB 1.0/CIFS file sharing support
- Check if the box and all others will auto populate and click OK
- Restart your computer
The SNMP Synology Logical Disk sensor can monitor a logical disk in a Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) thanks to Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
It provides you with information about the up status, the warning status and the down status.
If your Synology NAS is connected to the internet, it is possible that hackers and viruses will attack your Synology NAS. They can try to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data.
In order to avoid security problems, you can use a general sensor from PRTG. The SSL Security Check Sensor is able to monitor the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connectivity to the port of a device.
In case you have trouble accessing your Synology device over the Internet via QuickConnect and the message appears: "Network error occured: Please check your network settings.", it is possible that there is a problem with the connection or configuration.
Check if your Synology device is connected to the Internet. In order to make sure that the internet is not the problem, you can also connect another device to the same network ports and cables.
You can use the HTTP Sensor. It monitors if a website is reachable.
The SNMP Traffic Sensor monitors traffic on a device using SNMP. It is usable on a device that provides traffic data.
