Roger's comment confirms my suspicion of NUT as provided by Synology. They
make a great NAS product, but then they bolt on all manner of other things.
In my opinion, best to leave the NAS as an appliance configured and managed
by their GUI tools, and let it just be a NUT client rather than trying to
configure it to be the NUT server. I use and find the RaspberryPi's to be
very capable NUT servers with the rest of my systems (including my Synology
NAS) as NUT clients. Much simpler to manage that way as you have complete
control over a fairly current NUT as provided by Raspbian (a Debian
derivative). The only kink I've run into is that the Synology NAS as a NUT
client provides no means of changing the NUT credentials, so you have to
use default credentials for NUT (another reason to make sure NUT is on a
protected network).
