Synology is tightening security. They figured what the generated SNs are and simply made them invalid. This is all thanks to those using QC with generated SNs. This is the price to pay for selfish members who simply couldn't care less for the community. Unfortunately for them they are now also going to be affected by this since SNs are now also being used to validate some functionalities within certain Synology packages, like in your case, DS Photo.

Do you speculate that they'll continue to "root out" past generated S/Ns or would it just be a problem for those generating new S/Ns in the future?

As I knew this would happen and for testing purposes, I did generate a few SNs a few months back and added them in a Synology account and let them sit there idle to see what would happen. They were all reporting valid and showing the proper model name. Looking at the account now and all those serial numbers are still there BUT are no longer showing model names which means Synology has disabled those serial numbers. So, to answer your question, I would say, to all generated Serial Numbers past, present and future.
