Yes it is possible to host Docsvault SQL server database on a NAS device using the iSCSI interface (any good NAS will support this). To achieve this, follow the general steps below: 

  1. Configure an iSCSI target on your NAS  device from your NAS's interface
  2. On the machine running the Docsvault/SQL server start up the iSCSI initiator wizard from Windows control panel and fill up the NAS device information
  3. On the Docsvault server machine go to 'Disk Management' in Windows control panel and create a new drive from the free space made available by the iSCSI initiation
Note that an iSCSI interface is not required to take Docsvault backups on a NAS device as backups can be taken on simple shared folders.
