Can I restart my Synology NAS remotely?

Restarting a Synology NAS remotely

To remotely restart your Synology NAS, you can follow these steps:

1. Accessing the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM)

To begin, you will need to access the DiskStation Manager (DSM) interface of your Synology NAS. This can be done by typing the IP address or hostname of your NAS into a web browser. For example, if the IP address of your NAS is, you would enter "" in the browser's address bar.

2. Logging in to DSM

Once you have accessed the DSM interface, you will be prompted to enter your username and password. Enter the credentials associated with your Synology NAS and click on the "Log In" button.

3. Navigating to the Control Panel

After logging in, you will be directed to the DSM home screen. Locate and click on the "Control Panel" icon. This will open the Control Panel settings for your NAS.

4. Restarting the NAS

In the Control Panel, navigate to the "System" section and click on "System Information". This will display an overview of your NAS's system status.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Restart" button. A confirmation dialog will appear. Click on "OK" to proceed with the restart.

5. Monitoring the NAS restart progress

Once the restart process is initiated, it may take a few minutes for the NAS to fully stop and restart. To monitor the progress, you can check the status LED lights on the NAS itself. The status LED may blink or change color during the restart process.

After the NAS has successfully restarted, you can try accessing the DSM interface again to ensure it is back online.

Note: The exact steps and options in the DSM interface may vary depending on the model and version of your Synology NAS. It is always recommended to refer to the official Synology documentation or consult the user manual for your specific NAS model for accurate instructions.
