Tyler's Test System Specifications






ACC has always been the preferred method for setting up your AS6302T. The software will search for your NAS within the network and aide in initializing.




Pushing through initialization, we start by setting up ADM, the underlying OS for Asustor NAS. The 6302T uses ADM 3.1.




It does take a few minutes to get through setup, each step gets a check once complete.




ADM 3.1 offers the same desktop we have seen in the past. Icons separate the OS into categories.




Access Control allows you to setup users, groups along with managing LDAP and shared folders.




Activity Monitor allows you to check in on system usage.




App Central gives access to tons of applications, the most popular being Plex, Web Browser and Download Center.




Backup and Restore houses all your options for replication, external backup, and cloud options.




The external device manager allows you to setup drives, printers, Wi-Fi dongles even optical drives.




Moving to services, we have support for CIFS, AFP, and NFS. Further, we have FTP, WebDAV, and Bonjour support.




Settings goes a bit deeper with everything from network, to hardware and energy options.




Storage manager allows you to check in on your drive health along with capacity. If you use IronWolf drives, you get a higher level of detail on the drive health.




System info gives detail on the components along with Dr Asustor if you have an issue with the NAS.
