Problem

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v.10.10.1 and higher cannot be found in the Package Center for Synology DSM 7.

Background

The option of downloading NAKIVO Backup & Replication 10.10.1 + is unavailable at the Synology Package Center.

Note

Installation of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v.10.9 + on Synology using the 'Manual Install' in the Package Center instead of using SSH is not possible due to Synology's limitations.

  2. Stop NAKIVO services in Package center > Installed by selecting the NAKIVO Backup & Replication block and clicking ActionStop.

  3. Connect to Synology NAS via SSH (you can use the PuTTY ssh client) using an administrator account.
