Managing Synology Server

You can start managing Synology Server in Web Management UI. Synology Server Web Management UI provides distinctive and straight forward design for easy management. You will find an online Help button on every page of the Web Management UI. Click on the Help button for further information whenever you encounter any problem.

Managing Volume

You can combine hard disks on Synology Server to create different types of volumes, and find the data protection level of your need. The Synology Server provides you various volume types as follows:

Volume Type

Amount of composed hard disk

Functionality

Non-RAID 1 A Non-RAID volume must be created in one hard disk as an independent unit. In creating a Non-RAID volume, you can select only one hard disk at a time.

RAID 0 2~4 Combining multiple disks to build a volume, RAID 0 offers Striping, a process of dividing data into blocks and spreading the data blocks across several hard disks, but without safety measures.

RAID 1 2 One of the composed disks is used for backup purposes; the content of disk A is mirrored to disk B to assure data integrity. Therefore the actual available storage capacity equals to only the capacity of one hard disk.

RAID 5 3~4 This configuration includes a backup option. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of one disk for later data recovery. Therefore the actual available storage capacity equals to the capacity of n-1 hard disks.

Managing Volume You can create, remove, and repair volume. For the detailed description, please refer to Help on System > Volume page.

18

Repairing Volume by Hot Swapping RS-406 provides hot swapping function. When you need to replace crashed disks in RS-406, you dont need to turn off the server. You can refer to the disk status on the management UI, or the front panel LED indicators to identify crashed disks, and directly pull out the hard disk tray to replace the crashed disk with a new one. Then follow the steps on management UI to repair the degraded volume right after replacing the hard disk.

Joining Windows Domain

You can add Synology Server to Windows domain and let the domain users access Synology Server. Synology Server supports both Active Directory Service (ADS) and NT4 domain. After being added to a Windows domain, the domain users only need to enter their domain account and password when trying to access the Synology Server. If the authentication succeeds, access will be granted.

For the detailed description, please refer to Help on Network > Win/Mac OS page.

19

Assigning Access Right for Domain Users After adding Synology Server to a Windows domain, you can grant domain users access rights to the shared folders on Synology server. Please refer to the Accessing Synology Server Data > Setting Access Control section for details.

Resetting Administrator Password

Pressing the RESET button and hold it for about 4 seconds before you heard a beep sound will restore IP, DNS, passwords for the "admin" account to default value, and reset the guest account to the enabled status.

Reinstalling Synology Server

If for any reason you have to reinstall the Synology Server, you can press the RESET button on the back panel twice, and the Synology Server will be reinstalled. The data saved on the Synology Server will not be erased during the reinstallation. However, for securitys reason, we strongly recommend that you back up the data on the server.

To reinstall the server:

1. Press the RESET button and hold it for about 4 seconds. Release the button when the Synology Server emits a beep sound.

2. Within the next 10 seconds, press the RESET button and hold it for about 4 seconds again. Release the button when the Synology Server emits three beep sounds.

3. Run Synology Assistant, and set up the Synology Server again.

20

Accessing Synology Server Data

File sharing service is Synology Server's major function. Administrator can set up access rights for users either with Windows or Mac to access shared folders.

Shared Folders

System Built-in

Name Description

web The shared folder web is for storing web pages. When Web Station is enabled, users can browse the constructed website through browser. For detailed information, please refer to Extra Features > Web Station section.

photo The shared folder photo is for storing image files. Files in photo shared folder can be browsed when Photo Station or Multimedia Service is enabled. For detailed information, please refer to descriptions of Photo Station and Multimedia Service.

music Music files in music shared folder can be browsed through UPnP DMA when Multimedia Service is enabled. For detailed information, please refer to descriptions of Multimedia Service.

video Video files in video shared folder can be browsed through UPnP DMA when Multimedia Service is enabled. For detailed information, please refer to the page Network > Multimedia Service.

NetBackup The shared folder NetBackup is for saving backed up files using Network Backup. Please refer to the page Tools > Network Backup.

usbshare After you connect external USB HDD to Synology Servers USB port, system will automatically create a shared folder with the prefix usbshare. Refer to Expanding HDD Capacity > External USB HDD section for details.

Administrator-Created Apart from the above system built-in shared folders, Administrator can create shared folders on the page System > Shared Folder of the Web Management UI. Shared folders created by Administrator can be deleted or renamed at any time.

21

Setting Access Control

For security reasons, Administrator can go to the page System > Shared Folder of the Web Management UI and set access rights for different users by selecting the shared folder and clicking View/Edit.

If Synology Server has been added to the Windows domain, you will see the domain users listed under the User list. You can also grant access right for the domain users on this page. After finishing the setting, click OK.

22

Setting Encoding

Synology Server uses Unicode to manage files. The benefit of using Unicode is to avoid file inaccessibility between users who use different languages. However, for users without Unicode support on their PC, Administrator can set the encoding method of the files to overcome the problem. Please go to the page Network > Win/Mac OS of the Web Management UI for the setting.

23

Accessing Shared Folders

Windows User Windows users can access Synology Servers shared folders by using Setup Utility to map Network Drive

Synology Assistant, which is included in the Installation CD, not only helps Administrator manage Synology Server, but also provides users with the following steps to map Network Drive:

1. Run Synology Assistant.

2. Choose the server to map network drive.

3. Click on the Map Drive button on the left.

4. Follow the on-screen steps to finish the setup.

24

5. Upon completion, user can access the mapped shared folder in Windows Explorer.

Mac User Mac user can use Go > Connect to Server to choose a Synology Server and access the shared folder on the server.

25

Through FTP Synology server provides FTP service. Administrator can enable FTP service on the Network > FTP Service page of the Web Management UI. Windows users and Mac users can thus access data in Synology Server by FTP Protocol. To prevent data from being access while transferring, users can also use FTP over SSL or FTP over TLS to make the data more secure. For the detailed information of using FTP and its limitation, please refer to Help on Network > FTP Service page.

Please Note:

26

1. Administrator has the option to adjust FTP Bandwidth or enable Anonymous login.

2. FTP Service does not support Unicode. Before enabling FTP Service, please go to Network > Win/Mac OS page and setup codepage according to users client PC.

27
