Ok, I am stuck on this and need some help. I was able to get his to work for active backup for business on my baremetal test bulid. All went well so I finished installing all the hardware and setup for a fresh install. Now no matter what I do I get the {"error":{"code":400},"success":false} on the first step.

 

http://192.168.1.246:5000//webapi/auth.cgi?api=SYNO.API.Auth&method=Login&version=1&account=****&******=PASS                                             *=protected information.

 

What am i doing incorrectly here. cant move on until i figure out why it does not like my user and passwd.  all lower case, no specials letters or numbers or anything. IDK, HELP PLEASE.

If fred is your account, and pw is your password, the string looks like this:

/webapi/auth.cgi?api=SYNO.API.Auth&method=Login&version=1&account=fred&passwd=pw

 

That is not what you put in the post prior.

flyride, Thank you!! In my hours of frustrations I completely overlooked the fact that I am stupid and incorrectly edited the URL's. Followed the mistake you pointed out and BOOM, good to go. Thank you for helping me see my mistake and getting this going. 

 

{"data":{"activated":true,"serial_number":"**********"},"success":true}

Okay, been trying to get this to work for an hour or so.  I can run the first line in a browser to log into the NAS and it completes successfully.  However, when I try to run the activation line, it returns the following:

 

{"error":{"code":1024,"errors":{"params":{}}},"success":false}

 

Any insight on what I may be doing wrong?  I've tried a few different serial numbers with the same results.  Thanks!

Actually, just got it to activate.  Instead of using one of the serial numbers I got from a generator or ebay pics, I tried using the serial listed in the control panel of the DSM.  I thought this was the serial number of the physical box I have (Datto XL1000 4 bay NAS), but I'm guessing it may have been a generic Synology serial number from the loader or something.

Having issues with this, could somebody please shed some light on the issue please?

 

I've installed Active Backup for Business and opened the App on the diskstation and have the activate page open.

 

I've visited a new tab and entered https://diskstation:5001/webapi/auth.cgi?api=SYNO.API.Auth&method=Login&version=1&account=mydiskstationadminuser&passwd=mydiskstationadminuserpassword

 

This responds with 

{"success":true}

This also causes the diskstation tab to refresh and closes Active Backup for Business.

 

I've then visited in the same tab https://diskstation:5001/webapi/auth.cgi?api=SYNO.ActiveBackup.Activation&method=set&version=1&activated=true&serial_number="mydiskstationcontrolpanelserialwhicisthedefaultonefromgrub.cfg"

 

This responds with

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

 

What am i doing wrong please help?
