Q: How to configure UPS to avoid data corruption when there is an unexpected power cut?



#UPS # power cut

After NAS is connected to UPS with the USB cable and power cord, you can see the UPS configuration in ADM-External Device-UPS-Preference 

There are two different scenarios you can choose to configure the option:

1. Have the NAS umount the storage and terminate the services. Then power on after the power is restored.

In ADM-External Device-UPS-Preference-Method select Safe Mode.
In ADM-Settings-Hardware-Power, disable the EuP and enable the option "In the event of a power outage, enable the NAS to return to its previous state once power has been restored"

2. NAS is co-working with other devices and needs specific boot sequence, power off the NAS when there is an unexpected power cut, will manually power on NAS when power restored.

In ADM-External Device-UPS-Preference-Method select Shut down.
In ADM-Settings-Hardware-Power, disable the option "In the event of a power outage, enable the NAS to return to its previous state once power has been restored"
