Test System Setup


Tyler's NAS Test System Specifications





The Synology Assistant aides in setting up our appliance. Once installed this application will search your Network for any Synology NAS and start the setup process





DSM setup takes around 5-10 minutes. It will ask a few questions about location and what packages you want to be installed and then commences those changes.




The desktop for DSM6.1 houses a few icons to the left for installing packages and looking over your files in File Station. At the top left, you can click the four-square icon to get further options.




Those options include storage manager, HA manager for NAS failover and support center to name a few.




Control panel includes options for managing users and groups and even shared folders. You get connectivity options with network manager and wireless options if you happen to be using a WLAN adapter. Hardware and power along with indexing and external device manager are available near the bottom, and all NAS updates can be managed via the Update and restore link.




Storage manager gives you volume and disk group access. iSCSI is also made available to this menu as is SSD cache and Hot Spare.




The package center has a solid number of offerings including Synology's own apps seen above to the right.
