ReadyNAS setup takes just a few minutes. We start with the wizard seen above.
During setup, you have the chance to setup the admin password along with email recovery should you ever need to use it.
Once setup is complete, you will be let off at the dashboard above. This initial menu gives you a quick overview of the device and any volumes on the NAS.
Moving over to volumes, you see your drives installed listed in the center with capacity and RAID array type listed to the left. To create an array, you will see the menu to the right.
The Performance menu shows you the temperature for each drive along with system and CPU. Towards the bottom, there are graphs for network and volume activity.
Moving over to settings, you can see the services enabled along the top with an update string below. You can save your NAS configuration below that and enable alerts at the very bottom.
The shares tab gives you access to creating and managing DATA shares on the NAS.
Here you see the four ethernet ports built in on this platform. As you can see, we have a 10Gbe link.
