Initialization & Start Up
There are a few ways to access the DS216+. The first would be by the IP address that the NAS gets assigned. If you don’t happen to know the address, simply typing http://find.synology.com which will direct you to the Synology Web Assistant. If the device still cannot be found, you can download and install the Synology Assistant.
After clicking the set up button, you’ll need to install the Synology DiskStation Manager or DSM. You can choose to manually install DSM from a file stored on your local PC or you can choose to use the auto-install feature which downloads the latest DSM for the device directly from Synology.
Before moving forward with the installation, you will be asked to confirm that this process will wipe any data from the disks.
