Update 2

  • Fixed an issue where deleting snapshots through Snapshot Replication on the destination server might cause unused memory to not be released properly.
  • Fixed an issue where certain models might experience unsuccessful replication with Snapshot Replication after updating to DSM 7.2.
  • Fixed an issue where users signing in to DSM through Synology SSO might be unable to open Synology Office files.
  • Fixed an issue where the system might be unable to send test emails when Synology Account is configured to receive notifications.
  • Adjusted the suggestions generated by Western Digital Device Analytics (WDDA).
  • Fixed an issue where certain models might not display the corresponding storage pool after creating a volume.
  • Fixed an issue where the warning for checksum mismatch did not provide the file path for the files containing the error.
  • Fixed a security vulnerability regarding Ghostscript (CVE-2023-36664).
