So you’ve got Symform all set up and running on your Synology NAS, and you’ve been contributing space, but now the volume that has your contribution folder is getting full, adn you’d like to move it without disrupting the data that other Symform users like yourself have trusted you with. How to do it? Easily.
In this example, I’ll show you how to move it from volume1 to volume2.
First, stop the Symform service from Package Center.
Next, SSH into your Synology box and move the target directory to it’s new location, in this case, /volume2/SymformContribution
mv /volume1/SymformContribution/ /volume2
Next, edit the /volume1/@symform/lib/node.config file using vi and update the location by finding the line similiar to the following…
<contribution enabled="True" fragmentStorePath="/volume1/SymformContribution" port="53432" />
… and changing
(Note, this is the same file that’s used to update the incoming port, see this post for more information.)
Save the file, and restart the Symform service.
