Sonarr is supported natively on Windows. Sonarr can be installed on Windows as Windows Service or system tray application.
Sonarr can be installed as system tray application or Windows Service. A system tray application is started after the user logs in and is visible as an icon on the taskbar system tray.
A Windows Service runs even when the user is not logged in, but special care must be taken since Windows Services cannot access network drives (servershare or X: mapped drives) without special configuration steps.
Additionally the Windows Service runs under the 'Local Service' account, by default this account does not have permissions to access your user's home directory unless permissions have been assigned manually. This is particularly relevant when using download clients that are configured to download to your home directory.
It's therefore advisable to install Sonarr as a system tray application if the user can remain logged in. The option to do so is provided during the installer.
Updating Sonarr v2 to v3
Download Docker For Synology
Sonarr v3 will automatically convert the existing Sonarr v2 installation. Sonarr v2 stored it's database in
C:ProgramDataNzbDrone, which will be automatically converted to
C:ProgramDataSonarr.It's advisable to make a backup of the v2 data first.
Docker For Synology Download Station
Sonarr v2 ran under the System account, which has far too many privileges. Sonarr v3 runs under the Local Service account, and will not have access to user's home directories. This may lead to unexpected behavior when you're using a download client thats configured to download to your home directory.If this applies to you, please install Sonarr to run as system tray application instead.
Docker Package Synology Download
In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Homebridge on your Synology NAS using Docker. You can also use HOOBS for your smart home devices. Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Homebridge 1.3.2 release. Docker can be an alternative to virtual machines. If you don't have enough memory to run virtual machines on your Synology NAS, you can run Docker containers instead. Docker containers require a very little amount of memory and system resources to run. Running Docker Containers on Synology NAS is explained in this article. Docker exec -it valheim-server supervisorctl signal HUP valheim-backup Sending SIGHUP manually (as graceful as before but more 'manual') docker exec -it valheim-server bash -c 'kill -HUP $(docker exec -it valheim-server supervisorctl restart valheim-backup.
