To access Management Center, user needs to have system administrator's login and password. Address of the application is the same as QNAP device and it should be added automatically after logging window is opened.
Default adminstrator username and password is admin. They are pasted automatically during first login.
When you are logging into the application, as a user, for the first time, the First Run Wizard will run, which consists of six following steps: Administrator password, Storage, AD Integration, Add User, Download application and Assign host.
First Run Wizard – step 1
At the beginning, for security reasons, it has to change the administrator password, which is necessary to log on to the Management Center application and to the Control Panel.
First Run Wizard – step 2
If the default administrator password on QNAP device has been changed, you should define the storage in which the data will be stored. If the password has not changed, the magazine will be created automatically and thereby defining storage step in the First Run Wizard, will be skipped.
The configuration of the storage are described in the section – Storage space management (storage).
First Run Wizard – step 3
