minimserver stops running

minimserver stops running
Every week or two my music server disappears. I have minimserver 0.8.2 running on a synology NAS. When I log into the NAS and bring up the minimserver page it is shown as "stopped". I am then able to click "run" and minimserver starts up and everything is fine for another week or two.

What might be causing minimserver to stop running?

There have been reports that automatically updating the Synology DSM firmware can cause this to happen. See this thread.

I have the same problem on my QNAP 212p except it is every few days and it needs a full NAS reboot to start it.

RE: minimserver stops running
In my case it seems likely that it is the Synology OS update that is causing the problem. I set the NAS to send me email when it updates so I can confirm this (and know that I need to restart Minimserver).

RE: minimserver stops running
I don't know if this is of any help, but my Synology 214+ kept disappearing until I installed update 57 about 3 days ago. Since then, my Synology has been reassuringly ever-present. I mention this because Simon has said that update 57 should have this benefit and it does seem to have worked for me.

It's good to hear this. Please let me know if the problem happens again.

Hi Simon

It is probably as you would expect, but I felt I should advise you that after installing ADSM update 5.1-5022 update 1 to my Synology DS214+ today, Minimserver stopped and did not restart. I have done a manual restart and all now appears to be fine again. For further information, it did the same to Logitech Media Server, which is also resident on the Synology. After a manual restart, that too now seems fine.

Similar updates today to my Asustor AS-202TE, on which I hold backups of my music and the same media servers, installed without causing any problems with either server. Both NAS boxes have update 57 to Minimserver0.8.3 installed.

Don't know if this is of any use, but I will keep you advised of any other peculiarities.

Thanks for letting me know.

I have reported this issue to Synology but I haven't yet had a response. I think the problem might be caused by MinimServer not being a signed package. I have asked Synology about this but they have not responded.

There is a fix in MinimServer 0.8.3 update 57 for a problem that could cause this. You can install MinimServer 0.8.3 on your QNAP by following the instructions on this page.
