Migrate emby server from Qnap to Synology


Recommended Posts

I would like some directions as if this is possible and what problems could arise.


I am thinking of moving all of my 4k movie collection now residing on a qnap ts-869l (in fact I have started moving them...have a feeling that I shouldn't be doing this before backing up the emby data...I have shutdown the qnap instance of emby already...) to a synology ds1815 mainly because of bigger space...


The qnap runs the latest beta but on synology I am restrained to the latest stable release...will this pose a problem?


What is the best way to transfer the old server configuration to the new one? Automatically via the backup feature (with premiere of course) or manually?

Hi there, yes the backup feature would probably be your best bet. Keep in mind i would limit the restore to users and user data only. If you try to restore other settings that contain paths pointing to QNAP folders, it could be a problem.


Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

ok... I am ready to restore to the new server





which settings should I deselect? I am testing this on an Asustor but I don't think it would matter...would it?
