System Administration - Continued




If you have a hardware malfunction or security breach you want to know about it as quick as possible. With the SMPT server you can have your NAS email you the moment such an occurrence takes place.




Setting up the service is fast and several options are available.




If email is not fast enough for you, there is even an SMS message option that will send a message to your mobile phone.




The Power Management area is where you can reboot or shut down your NAS in an instant. Wake on LAN, Scheduling and Auto Resume are also configured in this area.




If being used in a multi-user environment, the Network Recycle Bin is a nice feature to enable so nothing gets deleted completely by mistake.




Being able to back up your configuration settings makes updating the firmware on your NAS very easy since you can save all of your settings to a file.




With the System Log recording actions you can see who was really the last one to tinker with the configuration and when. You can even download the system log to a client PC.




When the time comes, a firmware update can add new features or even speed up the performance of a NAS. Here we see how easy it is to point the NAS to the firmware and in just a few clicks update the NAS server's software.




At some point you may need to just start over and in the Factory Default tab you can get a fresh start.
