[Solved] migrating disks from old Synology to new Synology
I've been reading a lot about this process. I want to just move the HDs from a 1813+ to a 1819+. I have two volumes, volume 1 is the system and all my data, volume 2 contains a Hyperbackup of what's on Volume 1. Volume 1 is 6X 4TB drives setup in SHR with btrfs, and volume 2 is 2X6TB setup in RAID0 in EXT4. Snapshots are ON on my shared folders.
I also have setup a Shared Folder Sync task to another NAS unit on a different network, and activated Drive Shared team folder on one of the shared folder.
My question is, if I move all my drives to the 1819+, will I lose my Shared folder sync setup? My Synology Drive setup? What about my Volume 2? Will I lose my Snapshots? Will I loose my Hyperbackup tasks?
In the documentation, they talk about the services that will be backed up, but Drive, Hyperbackup and Shared folder sync are not mentioned, so I really don't want to have to redo my hyperbackup backup and resync everything because of a new Shared folder sync setup. Any advice on this?
And, how much time does it take to do the migration, if you shutdown both unit, transfer the drives, restart the DS1819+, run the migration assistant. Does it depend on how much data is on the drive or it's just a simple config import and that's it? I need to know how much down time there will be.
Thanks for this, @jefflambert670 — I hadn’t experienced the Shared Folder Sync issue when doing my migrations... because I didn’t have any of those synced the last time I did one of these. Will bear this in mind for the future. Thanks for summarizing it all!
