When setting up a shared server, system administrators often have to spend a lot of time creating user accounts. ASUSTOR now provides a more convenient and efficient way to do this. Via ADM’s batch creation function, you can quickly create multiple regular sequential user accounts (e.g., student numbers). With regards to irregular non-sequential account creation, you can enter account data into a text file (*.txt, *.csv) and then import it into ADM to create accounts. During importation, the system will also check for the integrity of account data and indicate any errors making them convenient for system administrators to correct.
When system resource use is maximized, executing system updates may affect system operation efficiency. ASUSTOR provides flexible scheduling that allows administrators to schedule firmware version checks and updates during appropriate times in order to avoid high system loading or busy network traffic. Also, new update settings have also been added to App Central. App Central can now check for ADM and App version compatibility and then proceed to automatically update Apps. Updates can also be scheduled for times when the system resource requirements are low.
ADM 3.0 optimizes the App installation process by adding a usage option during system initialization. Users can now select from between “Home and Personal Use” and “Business Use” when installing ADM and have corresponding Apps installed during the initialization process. After initialization is complete, the Apps will immediately be ready for use. This saves users from having to manually install the Apps.
ADM 3.0 introduces App and ADM system upgrade prompts. If there are items that can be upgraded, App Central and the Settings icon will indicate the number of upgradable Apps via a notification bubble. Upon logging in to ADM users will be able to view the number of updates available. Combined with the scheduled upgrade function, this allows users to easily make sure everything is always up to date.

When it's time to move your storage volumes to a new system, simply take out your existing hard drives and then insert them into the new system. That's it.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) provides a set of standards that allows managers on a single network management system (NMS) to collect information from all network equipment for convenient monitoring and maintenance. ADM 2.4.0 supports SNMP v1, v2c, v3 and also provides a trap setting that can actively notify the NMS of significant events.
