QNAP TS-451 Operating System

Initial Setup

qnap1One the QNAP TS-451 has completed the boot process, simply go to http://start.qnap.com and enter the Cloud Key to start the set up process. QNAP also provides another utility called QFinder that will run through a similar set up.


qnap2During the set up process you will need to answer a few questions. Questions such as what you’d like to call the NAS, the type of RAID, the Time Zone need to be answered. If you want to chance your answers from the defaults, just click on the item and fill in what you’d like.


qnap3During the set up, the QNAP TS-451 defaulted to RAID 5. Just by clicking on the item, you can select which RAID configuration you’d like by selecting it from the drop down box.



qnap4After the changes are made a confirmation box will appear verifying these are the settings you’d like.


qnap5After the settings have been selected, click on the Proceed button and the software will begin to configure the NAS. For our RAID 10 set up, this process took around 10 minutes to complete.


qnap6Once everything is complete, a congratulations screen will appear. From here you can dive into the NAS Operating system, called QTS.
