I would like to use a Synology NAS as the hard drive for the 2012 R2 Fileserver so that I would not to have separate hard drives for Hyper-V replication.  I can't figure out a way to do that.  Is it Possible?

What synology NAS are you using? depending on the device you can connect it via eSATA or in most cases iSCSI over TCP/IP

Actually I have an old server that I install the Synology on (Via USB Bootup).  It looks like the exact same software that I have in my DS2316i.  I guess a better question would have been "can I use the Synology software as an external hard drive connected via ethernet"

Sorry for the long delay to your question must have missed the notification.

I am not 100% sure as I don't have any experience with the Software (via USB). but on the normal NAS software you have the capability to connect via network share or iSCSI LUN

If you have the option for iSCSI LUN you can connect it as a drive on your computer.
