The Platform used with the DS415+ as the time of writing is DSM 5.2 5592 Update 4. It is also worth noting that DSM is one of the most maintained NAS operating systems and as such will surely be on a newer version after this review is published. To get started with setup, depending on how you go about it, you can enter your NAS IP in your web browser which will then download the latest version of DSM.
After the initial download of DSM, you will be able to set the admin password, along with changing the server name if you wish.
After about 10 minutes, the NAS will be ready to use, and as such will allow you to log in.
Here you can see the layout of DSM. As you can see by default, it is a minimalist approach giving you just a few icons to the far left, while everything else is hidden and can be shown by clicking on the four squares at the top left.
Looking at the second menu, you can see we have access to everything from the control panel to the storage manager, along with any apps you have installed. In our case, we have Media Server, Video Station, and Surveillance Station installed.
