DNS for ReadyNAS 2304 and ReadyNAS 214 under macOS Big Sur

Hello,

I have installed 2 NAS Storage Systems (ReadyNAS 214 & ReadyNAS 2304) on my Network. Both get there reserved IP address from a DHCP Server (my BINTEC Router).

On my Windows Systems I can adress both NAS Systems with their DNS Name, for example NAS-AG20.

On my macOS Big Sur Systems and my iOS Systems the NAS will be registrated at the first time after booting the NAS System with the correct name. But then - I think on every refresching the DHCP Lease - the System will get a new DNS Name  NAS-AG20-1, AG20-NAS-2 ... and so on. After that I can address the System (for example by PING) with this new name.

But this is a problem for any defined and saved network path.

Any idea for solution?

 

Thanks

Stefan

This is a new one for me, although I am not a mac user.

 

Windows isn't appending the -1, -2 stuff - so I am thinking it might be something that Big Sur is doing. 

 

One practical work-around is to use the reserved IP address instead of the host name.  You could also put the proper name in the hosts file on the mac.

Hi StephanB,

It is clear that you can do it this way, but this is only a workaround and not a solution Smiley Wink

So I hope for the soution ...+

Yes, which I said in my reply.

 

Sometimes workarounds are the best you can do.  Hopefully someone who is running Big Sur will chime in with something better.
