Updating Synology DSM

Synology releases DSM 7.2-64570 OS update

Synology has released a new version of its NAS operating system. This latest release is a big one, containing numerous changes and fixes. This guide will showcase what’s new in DSM 7.2-64570 and how to go about installing it on your Synology NAS.

What’s new in DSM 7.2-64570?

We’re going to round up all the changes and fixes published by Synology for this OS update. Something to bear in mind is S.M.A.R.T testing for M.2 NVMe SSDs is no longer supported in this release. Virtual Machine Manager will also no longer support creating clusters with older versions of DSM.

Changes

  • Added support for WriteOnce shared folders. This feature is based on the Write Once, Read Many (WORM) technology and can be enabled to prevent files from being modified, deleted, or renamed for a specified period.
  • Added support for volume encryption. All volume encryption keys are stored in the Encryption Key Vault, which can be set up on a local Synology NAS or via KMIP on a remote Synology NAS.
  • Added more Synology NAS models to support M.2 NVMe SSD storage pools. Learn more
  • Added more Synology NAS models to support the M2D18 adapter card: RS822RP+, RS822+, RS1221RP+, and RS1221+.
  • Added more SSD cache group management options, including changing the RAID type and replacing a drive.
  • Added support for inline zero-block removal to increase the efficiency of data deduplication.
  • Adjusted how drive information is presented in Storage Manager. Users can now quickly check the condition of their drives by looking at the “Drive Status” field.
  • Users can now view the amount of used and free space for each storage pool and volume in Storage Manager.
  • Added a warning notification for when the available shared folder quota is low.
  • Supports deleting individual desktop notifications.
  • Supports sending DSM notifications via additional webhook providers, including LINE and Microsoft Teams.
  • Supports creating custom notification rules for system events, giving users greater control over what notifications to receive.
  • Supports exporting a list of users and of groups.
  • Added support for SAML to integrate DSM with external SSO servers.
  • Added the option to allow non-admin users to safely eject USB devices.
  • Users can now manually input the IP addresses or FQDNs of one or more domain controllers in the trusted domain. This allows Synology NAS to sync domain data directly with the specified domain controllers.
  • Users can now enable Synology’s email server to send DSM notifications directly to their Synology Account.
  • Added support for Auto Block, which restricts SMB login attempts from abnormal IP addresses.
