At the initial setup of HA, my Synology (DS1515) was recognized. I decided to install other integrations first and get back to it later.
Now that I am trying to install the DSM integration I keep getting the “failed to connect”. DSM version: DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 3
HA and Synology are in the same home network. Tot the outside world, my NAS is available using the Synology DNS service “example.diskstation.me”. All settings like port number are kept default.
Of course it’s also available from within the home network, based on ip and port: 192.168.1.115:5001.
Here’s what I did sofar:
- created a new user on DSM gave it admin rights
- install the integration
- used http and https
- tried with and without port number
- used the external address and internal IP address of the NAS
- tried connection with an existing user
- install the configuration manually (in configuration.yaml)
According to this YT video, the new way of configuring the integration is to remove info from sensors.yaml and add the following lines to configuration.yaml:
# Synology synology_dsm: host: http://[my_ip_address] port: 5001 ssl: false username: [username] password: [password]
What I find strange is that HA sees the NAS, but there’s no way to connect to it.
Also in the Synology logs I see no attempts of a connection.
Is there any way (manually) to get this working?
