Hi!

So far the Site Manger only runs on Windows based OS, like Win 10 or Windows Server.

This means it is necessary that a PC or a server runs 24/7 to get the most out of the manager. I tried to install Win10 for the purpose of running the Site Manager on my Synology NAS using a VM (QEMU as far as I know), however, due to limited ressources on this NAS, this won't run perfectly well. Did not even try Windows Server.

On the same Synology NAS (DS916+, btw.) I've many docker containers running (4 to be precisely) - Would it be possible to get a docker based Site Manger one day?

Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael,

In principle, a docker container running Windows Server Core should be capable of running Site Manager as it's a headless service, however some of the underlying comms technology might have a little trouble - MSMQ seems to be quite sensitive to DNS changes and causes a lot of disk and comms traffic (this is why we're moving away from MSMQ in a major update).
All config files are stored in c:\programdata\macrium\sitemanager, so it should be relatively easy task to containerize, however I'm not a docker expert and we don't currently have plans for an official Site Manager for Docker release at the moment. It's a nice concept for home/small business users though, so I'll pass the suggestion on to our dev team.

Regards,
Alex
