As you could have guessed, the Lockerstor uses ACC to set up and initialize the unit.
Moving through setup, we first start by confirming drives are installed and heeding the warning above, letting us know all data on the drive will be wiped.
We then set up the admin account and move to creating our array. For this review, I am using four Seagate 600 Pro SSDs. EXT4 and BTRFS filesystems are available.
The ADM dashboard offers several shortcuts for activity, apps, and managing the NAS.
Access Control includes local users and groups along with domain setup and shared folders.
App Central opens you up to a plethora of options for enhancing the Lockerstor.
Backup and Restore offers options for Remote Sync, FTP, and Internal Backups. You can also schedule External Backups and Cloud platforms.
External devices support includes Hard Drive, Printers, Wi-Fi Dongles, Optical Drives, and Uninterruptible Power Supplies.
Services include SMB for Windows platform, macOS AFP, and NFS for Linux. We also have the standard FTP, Web Server, and Rsync options.
Storage Manager offers an overview of the volumes on the NAS along with capacity and array type to the right. Down below, you can see drives installed.
