Local Users

Here you can manage (add, edit or remove) the local users in the system and assign their access rights to shared folders.

Usernames support multibyte character sets (such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Cyrillic) and can contain a maximum of 32 characters. Unsupported characters include: # $ % * + = [ ] | : ; ” ’ < > , ? /. Usernames cannot start with @-。and cannot start or end with a blank space. Usernames cannot contain consecutive blank spaces.

Reminder: If you only have a few users on the system, you can set up the access rights for each of them one by one.
Within ADM, a single user's access rights with regards to shared folders will depend on the user's existing access rights and on the access rights of the group that the user belongs to. Both sets of access rights will be checked against each other in order to determine priority. For convenience, the system provides a preview mode which allows you to first preview any changes that you make to access rights.
  • Import users: You can batch create user accounts by importing a users list file.
    • To edit the users list file:
      Method 1. Use a Text Editor:
      1. Open a new file with a text editor.
      2. Enter a user's information in the following order and separate them by semicolon (;)
        • Username
        • Password
        • Description
        • E-mail
        • Quota (GB) (this setting will be applied to all existing volumes)
        • Group (if you want to add the user to multiple groups, use comma to separate the group names)
      3. Go to the next line and repeat step 2 until you have input all the users. Each line indicates one user's information.
      4. Save the file in UTF-8 encoding.
    • Method 2. Use Microsoft Excel:
      1. Open a new file with Excel.
      2. Enter users' information in the following order and separate them by column in a single row:

About Local Users

After initialization, the system will automatically create user accounts for "admin" and "guest". "admin" is the default administrator account and possesses a majority of the access rights. If you wish, you can change the access rights and password for this account. "guest" is the default guest account which is only suitable for use with CIFS/SAMBA and AFP. This account does not possess login and authentication rights, so you cannot change its password.
