    As long as you have mapped your /config to folder on NAS then you are safe.. You can always back up this folder to yet another location if you are afraid.

    Here is another thread I tried to describe steps for update which also includes compilation of other synology Docker info.

    Does LMS on Docker Run on Synology DSM 7.0?

    Thanks, Jaca, for the tips and, of course, Michael H, for EVERYTHING. I just updated my dockerized LMS from 8.1.2 (?) to 8.2.1 on my Synology 918+ running DSM 6.2. Took me more than 2 minutes, but now it works like a champ under DSM 6.2.

    But is LMS still a no-go with DSM 7.0, even if dockerized?

    I use LMS to serve music around the house and don't ever want to leave it. I use Subsonic to serve the same library to a relative overseas.

    Subsonic will run under Docker on DSM 7.0, but I'm worried but I've read in various threads about LMS incompatibility. Does Docker virtualize around whatever root action was causing DSM 7 heartburn?

    LMS: 8.1.1 to 8.2 with Docker andSynology

    > But is LMS still a no-go with DSM 7.0, even if dockerized?

    Dockerized LMS is fine, no matter what DSM. It's the nature of those
    containers to be as independent of the outside system as possible. What
    broke LMS on Synology in the first place was their updating Perl. That
    new Perl version was no longer compatible with the LMS package, and they
    never bothered to update the LMS package. Now the Docker image comes
    with its own Perl. That Perl version stays the same inside the
    container, no matter what the outside is using.

    LMS run in Docker is no longer aware of the fact that it's run on a NAS.
    But Docker is not available on all Synology devices.

    I think you are right Michael. I also think that Synology developers got angry because Logitech had an erratics policy with the lack of LMS upgrades before it became an open source product. They were for years on version 7.7.x. It is evident that there are many people who have asked Synology to continue supporting the product, but they have not wanted to continue supporting it.

    With your support LMS is on a New Age. For example Spotty is an impressive piece of software.

    Thank you for your support

    Hallelujah! This is great news though I feel the pain of those who have older Synology devices that do not support Docker.

    Whatchtower updater

    The easiest and quickest way to update way seems to be outlined in this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YLZfIr4F5I

    I got it to easily work for my Plex Docker container. (I still have had no luck getting LMS container to work.) Part of following the above video requires SSH into the NAS. A good tutorial for that, using PuTTY, is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCCIMRbAUp8 I have found all of WunderTech tutorials to be very helpful.
