Then put them in. I have no idea what would happen if you tried
to use no secrets. I don't even know if its detailed in the
RFC how to handle this. You should always have matching secrets
defined for everything.

As a secondary though. SQL Server doesn't support a zero length string,
so the secret is a single space (since I believe it doesn't allow
NULL). On your NAS, a blank secret is most likely truely a zero
length string. Those are NON-MATCHING secrets.
