A Linux Admins guide to using Synology NAS

Recently I replaced my Synology DS1815+ for a DS1819+. I decided to rebuild from scratch (while migrating my data). I’ve used Synology for about 10 years and I’ve also got a strong background in Linux, so I decided to write a series of articles that describe how I use my Synology NAS with my Linux desktop.

I should make it clear that Fedora & Red Hat are my distro of choice, although most of what I will demonstrate is transferrable to other distributions.

Disclaimer, I work for Red Hat, but this is a personal blog not affiliated with them in any way. My thoughts and blogs are my own.

I encourage, and welcome feedback. If something doesn’t work, doesn’t make sense, then please feel free to reach out to me.
