Mounting Hosts Storage in to DiskStation

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

through some reasons I want virtualize Xpenology DiskStation on my Qnap in the Virtualization Station.

Some features are from the Qnap better other things are better in Synology, like cloudstation and surveillance station.

 

Is there a possibility to have direct access to the host Folders and mount them to the Synology virtual Guest to store the files from cloudstation direct on the Qnap.

Will be great to have a solution.

Thank you Dutchman,

 

can you describe how you would do this?

 

Thank you....

 

Basically you can just use the standard instruction of synology.

 

https://www.synology.com/nl-nl/knowledgebase/DSM/help/DSM/FileBrowser/mountremotevolume

 

Change to en-en for English

 

So

 

1) share folder on the qnap

2) mount to synology

 

Keep in mind:

1) you must have a volume in DSM to mount this folder to

2) you can only mount, not use it as disk

 

If you want to have a disk shared TI dsm isci link could be used but I think that's far away from way you want

Thank you Dutchman,

 

same thought ind the same minute :wink:

I got it and changed something in the question above.

The Question is now, can the cloudstation sinyncronize in this remote folder on the qnap machine and will then all files natively be stored on the qnap.

 

If it works, we have, what we say in switzerland eine "Eierlegende Wollmilchsau" :wink:

Unfortunately it's not possible to Link a CloudStation Folder to a cifs Remote Folder or in to this Folder.

Is there a possibility/work around to solve this?
