Using minIO as a S3 Cloud Storage Device on Synology NAS

Level 1

Has anyone had luck installing minIO on a Synology NAS as s3 storage?  I have followed some instructions that I found for another backup product using minIO which has you install Docker on the Synology NAS and then install the minIO Image.

I then installed a new Cloud Instance in the Backup Exec Command Line and set the User to match the assigned Access Key ID and the Password to match the assigned Secret Key.  We are using port 9000 on the minIO server.

When I try to then add Cloud Storage in Backup Exec I get the error:

The server was unable to complete the requested operation.  Unable to connect to the CloudStorage device.  Ensure that the network is properly configured between the device and the Backup Exec server.  BEMSDK Failure Code: E0009B3F.

See the following Wireshark trace sent to and from Backup Exec to the minIO server when the error occurs:

GET / HTTP/1.1


Accept: */*

Authorization: AWS Redacted :/swUqJpyTy9cvIJItoOyDtxNEd0=

user-agent:APN/1.0 Veritas/1.0 BackupExec/21.3

I then see the following reply from the minIO server:

Any ideas?
