In the introduction article of the series, we talked about the new RS2423+ in general. About its specifications, internal setup, as well as how to install it inside a rack, and how to add the drives.
With this article we will be moving a step forward, starting with DSM 7.2 installation and configuration. Further along, we will see how to configure the RAID array using the new HAT3300 Synology NAS drives, install packages, and configure some other services that come with this whole ecosystem.
