not able to change network parameters

Post by kop-95 » Sat Oct 01, 2016 4:29 pm


I need to update my DNS parameters on my TS-451 NAS (QTS 4.2.2 build 20160901), and when trying to do it with the "network and virtual switch" window, I cannot change any parameter (but works on all the other windows...).
Tried with Safari, IE, Chrome with no success...

Is there a way to change the network parameters from another way (command line) ?
Tried to change the resolv.conf file, but it seems to be replaced when rebooting.

Hi kop-95, :)

Not sure where that is. In the QTS control panel, 'System Settings', 'Network', then edit the 'DNS Server' parameters.

If you're willing to risk it and go old-school, you could try editing:

Code: Select all

but I've never edited that file directly, so I don't know effective that will be. But files under '/etc/config' are persistent.

Good luck!

By chance, was the "network and virtual switch" app installed on your NAS? If so, read the following post:
