Synology DS413j operating system upgrade from 4.3 to 5.x

hello

I have a Synology DS431j device running on DSM 4.3-3810 version. This device is part of an AD and acts primarily as a file server. Beside, it offers FTP and EMAIL services. The DSM 4.3-3810 version is rather old and the device asks for upgrade to the newest 5.0 version. My question is if anyone has performed this upgrade running these services (fileserver, ftp and email) and after upgrade was all ok. I fear that these services might get faulty after the upgrade.
As a remark, I have another DS431j that servers only as backup station, for this device I have made the upgrade and all went ok.

Thank you and regards,
Cosmin

I assume you mean you have a DS413J, not DS431J.  The current operating system is 5.1, not 5.0.  For the vast majority of Synology users, the upgrades go fine.  Of course there are always a few that don't, but that's often because there was disk corruption prior to the update, or settings in the underlying configuration that had been monkeyed with prior to the update.

Before updating, you should of course back up your system's configuration using Control Panel/Update & Restore/Configuration Backup).

After updating the DSM, the system will prompt you to download newer versions of many of your packages, such as the email server, but your settings should survive the updates.

Indeed, nothing went wrong durning the upgrade, and true, a lot of smaller upgrades came afterwards.
