Setup – Users, Services & Backup
Users are the foundation to connect to the NAS and you should create at least one user more than the admin. It isn’t recommended to use the admin account all the time.
Adding a user is real easy, just hit the add button and enter a username. Anything else is optional, but I recommend that you also set a password.
You can also add multiple users at once by an automated process. The user names will be generated out of the prefix you provide and incremental numbers starting from where you want it to. You can also assign quotas to all the new users right away.
You can edit all your users at any time, so no worries if you should make an error. Just fix it or add and remove rights at any time.
User groups make it easier to maintain a lot of users at once. Instead of having to set access rights and privileges for all users individually, you just set them to the group. Only one place to edit instead of possible hundreds.
All you need to create a group is a name and some users to put in it, that’s all.
You can also set quotas and edit memberships at any time.
Connecting to the NAS isn’t everything, we also want to add some shares for out files. The is a public folder default and every user will also get their own directory for personal files. Besides that you can create many more to suit just your needs, examples could be Media, TV Shows, Movies, Pictures, and Backup.
Just hit the add button, select a volume and give it a name and optional description and it’s ready.
