Auto On/Off

Post by MrJSaul » Tue May 22, 2018 1:56 am

I want my server to shut off at a specific time at night and come back on at a specific time in the morning. Is there a way to have this setup to occur automatically? Thanks, Josh

not sure what qnap model you're using... :' ... but yes this is possibru 8)

Go to qts

options > power > schedule and set as you see fit.

Eup mode needs to be disabled though, if you want to use power scheduling mode instead.

i suggest tick/enable the postpone shut down/restart if any replication is taking place. It would be a disaster if a backup job got stopped mid way :S

based on your requirements, just having a shutdown and a power on is sufficient. doubt you need restart? :' when i need a ram refresh, i use qboost for that. saves me the time needed to perform a restart.


other things you could do is configure UPS

Example shutdown and startup by the power schedule.

I'm using Acronis to backup my desktop/workstation at certain intervals. (Windows desktop backed up to NAS).

If I tick the "Postpone scheduled restart/shutdown when a replication job is in progress" box, will this also prevent the NAS from shutting down during my Acronis backup (on my desktop)?

Thanks!
