The easiest and fastest way to setup the unit is to launch the ASUSTOR control center software, wait until it locates the NAS in your local network and then start the setup procedure.

 

 


You may need to update the firmware of the unit and you can do that either directly from the ASUSTOR server or from a firmware file (if you have it from the official ASUSTOR page).

 

 

The entire initialization process takes but a few minutes to complete.

 

 

After that you can choose between the fast 1-click setup and the custom setup (typically we followed the custom route).

 

 

Via the custom route you will need to set the server name (if you don't like the default one), server password, time zone, language, network options and configure the drives (single/RAID/JBOD) in order to proceed.

 

 

ASUSTOR has inserted a new page in the setup procedure from where you can choose to automatically install apps based on the type of usage you plan for the NAS (Home/Personal or Business).
