Tyler's Test System Specifications






Windows Storage Server 2016 offers the same controls as 2012, built on the newer Windows 10 Kernel. That said once you launch into the admin account either through remote desktop or natively through VGA you will be greeted by the Server Manager dashboard seen above. From here you can configure services, storage, and functionality.




In a similar fashion to the last Buffalo WSS platform, they offer a dashboard app to aid in setting up and monitoring the appliance. To the left, we have system info including temperatures, fan speed and backup through buffalo replication. To the right, we have Network information and drive status.




The options tab from within buffalo Dashboard offers the ability to setup arrays. These options include the default RAID 1 setup along with Spanned and RAID 0




NAS Navigator 2 can aide in starting setup and checking in on drive status.
