Migrating from Old NAS

Users can migrate their existing NAS to another NAS model with all the data and configuration retained by simply installing all the hard drives of the original (source) NAS on the new (destination) NAS according to its original hard drive order and restart the NAS.

 

Due to differing hardware designs, the new NAS will automatically check if a firmware update is required before system migration. After the migration has finished, all of the settings and data will be retained and applied to the new NAS. However, system settings of the source NAS cannot be imported to the destination NAS via "System Administration" > "Backup/Restore Settings". Configure the NAS again if the settings were lost.

Note:

The destination NAS should contain enough drive bays to house the hard drives of the source NAS.
Users are encouraged to only use drives that are compatible with the NAS before system migration or the data may be inaccessible. For a compatibility list, go to http://www.qnap.com/compatibility.
SS-x39 and SS-469 Pro series only support 2.5-inch hard disk drives.
Encrypted disk volumes cannot be migrated to a NAS that does not support file system encryption. File system encryption is not supported by the TS-110, TS-119, TS-210, HS-210, TS-219, TS-219P, TS-x20, TS-x21, TS-410, TS-419P, TS-410U, TS-419U, TS-119P+, TS-219P+, TS-419P+, TS-112, TS-212, TS-412, TS-419U+, TS-412U, TS-420U and TS-421U.
Multimedia Station, Download Station, iTunes Server, and DLNA Media Server features will be removed after migrating non-TS-x79 models to TS-x70U/TS-x79 models. The shared folders Multimedia/Qmultimedia, Download/Qdownload and all the downloaded files will be retained.
The registered myQNAPcloud name on the source NAS will not be moved to the destination NAS after system migration. To use the same myQNAPcloud name on the destination NAS, change the myQNAPcloud name on the source NAS before system migration and register the same name on the destination NAS after the process is completed. Contact the QNAP technical support department if you encounter any issues during this process.

Migrating your NAS

 

Follow the steps below to perform system migration:

1.Turn off the source NAS and unplug the hard drives.
2.Remove the hard drives from the old trays and install them to the hard drive trays of the new NAS.
3.Plug the hard drives to the destination NAS (new model). Make sure the hard drives are installed in the original order.
4.Follow the instructions of the Quick Installation Guide (QIG) to connect the power supply and network cable(s) of the new NAS.
5.Turn on the new NAS. Login to the web administration interface as an administrator (the default login ID and password of the NAS are both "admin".)
6.If you are prompted to update the firmware of the new NAS, follow the instructions to download and install the firmware.
7.Click "Start Migrating". The NAS will restart after system migration. All the data and settings will be retained.

 

Caution: To avoid system damage or serious injuries, the system migration procedure should be performed by an authorized server manager or IT administrator.

 

Some system settings will be removed after system migration due to a different system design. Configure the following settings again on the new NAS:

Windows AD
Some Apps will need to be reinstalled.
