The New Active Backup

Recommended Posts

Does anybody manage to run The New Active Backup suite?

 

It requries activation, that fails (error 404) on 6.1.7

The 404 is because the serialnumber is not a valid one. If you set a valid serialnumber in your grub.conf youll get the synology account login screen for activation instead of 404.

Any possibility of generating valid serial number? I'm not sure if using the beta version is the good way to think of backups..

Just block the activation element using your favorite adblocker.

At least that works for me in the G Suite edition of Active Backup.

I confirm it works, you block the activation element with the adblocker and you also block the mask

There is a better way^^ Just activate it:

 

In your browser open the following urls one after another:

 

Replace the following: URL, PORT, USER, PASS, SERIALNUMBER (dont replace any other symbols like : oder ")

  1. https://URL:PORT/webapi/auth.cgi?api=SYNO.API.Auth&method=Login&version=1&account=USER&passwd=PASS
  2. https://URL:PORT/webapi/entry.cgi?api=SYNO.ActiveBackup.Activation&method=set&version=1&activated=true&serial_number="SERIALNUMBER"

To get the current activation status call the 1. query above and then

  • https://URL:PORT/webapi/entry.cgi?api=SYNO.ActiveBackup.Activation&method=get&version=1

------------------------------

Example for

url: server,

port: 5001,

user: admin,

pass: admin,

serialnumber: 123400

  1. https://server:5001/webapi/auth.cgi?api=SYNO.API.Auth&method=Login&version=1&account=admin&passwd=admin
  2. https://server:5001/webapi/entry.cgi?api=SYNO.ActiveBackup.Activation&method=set&version=1&activated=true&serial_number="123400"

The last method dosn't work for me.

 

The first command worked, but I only get the this error after the second command:

 

{"error":{"code":102},"success":false}

code: 102 means the API does not exist. This happens if ActiveBackup is "stopped" or not installed. Make sure you can open ActiveBackup before calling the methods above. Also make sure to use the SerialNumber of youe synology station

it will hold for any upward updates ?

 

Its what the apps do after you logged in successfully. therefore its no "hack" but the official way to activate those programs. as long as synology does not change that way it will uphold

help!  when I tried this line:

 

https://server:5001/webapi/auth.cgi?api=SYNO.API.Auth&method=Login&version=1&account=admin&passwd=admin

 with the correct server name, admin and password

 

My browser always does a search for this item on google or bing instead of returning the response.  

 

I can run the next two lines with the entry.cgi and I get the error back, but I can't get the 1st line with the auth.cgi to run.

 

It got to be something silly I'm missing.

 

Thanks!
