Synology DiskStation DS411 Review

Software – Installation

After we installed a drive into the DiskStation and connected it to our network the next step is to install the DSM (DiskStation Manager) software. This is achieved by firstly installing Synology Assistant to our PC, which is provided on the installation CD.

After we have the Synology Assistant up and running it should find the DiskStation location on our network. At this point the DiskStation will be showing as not installed, so we need to install the DSM software.

The setup wizard will ask us to locate the DSM software on the installation CD. The version of DSM on the installation CD isn’t up to date though as we would expect. The most recent DSM can be found on the Synology website and so it is best to head there.
