ASUSTOR ADM 4.3.0

ASUSTOR releases ADM 4.3.0 update with support for Surveillance Center 3.0

by

ASUSTOR has released a major new release of ADM, the company’s NAS operating system. ADM 4.3.0 supports the installation of the Surveillance Center 3.0 beta, countless fixes, and security improvements. I’ll run through all the changes and how you can install ADM 4.3.0 on your ASUSTOR NAS.

Which ASUSTOR NAS can receive ADM 4.3.0?

ASUSTOR states AS31, 32, 40, 61, 62, 63, 64, Nimbustor, Nimbustor Gen2, Drivestor, Drivestor Lite, Drivestor Pro, Drivestor Pro Gen2, Lockerstor, Lockerstor Gen2, Lockerstor Pro, Flashstor NAS will be able to receive the ADM 4.3.0 update. I wouldn’t recommend attempting to install the update on any other enclosure.

The Surveillance Center 3.0 beta will also open up to those running ADM 4.3.0, so if you want to test the latest release of ASUSTOR’s security system, you must update your OS.

Support for WORM is a big change for ADM and ASUSTOR enclosures. Standing for Write Once, Read Many, this marks a folder as WORM for data to be written and only read. It’s a handy feature for NAS enclosures where you don’t want data to be modified within specific folders.

Changes

  • ADM 4.3.0 supports installation of the new Surveillance Center 3.0 Beta.
  • Optimized SMB settings UI. Time Machine can now be configured with SMB enabled.
  • Backup tasks in ADM Backup and Restore will no longer back up data in ADM recycle bins.
  • When a RAID Volume is being upgraded or expanded, a reminder will appear to instruct users to avoid restarting or hibernating the NAS. Scheduled tasks that need to upgrade ADM, hibernate, or restart the NAS will be temporarily skipped when synchronizing, rebuilding, or upgrading a volume.
  • Photos can now be uploaded to MyArchive using AiData.

Fixes

  • Fixed Linux kernel potential vulnerabilities: CVE-2024-1086. (AS-2024-003)
  • Certificates using the ECDSA algorithm can now be properly imported into the ADM Certificate Manager.

While ASUSTOR makes updating ADM painless, I always recommend backing up all your data before attempting to do so. When you’re ready, I’ve compiled a short list of steps you can take to update the NAS, as well as set up automated update notifications. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Back up all the data stored on your ASUSTOR NAS.
  2. Go to Settings > ADM Update.
  3. Make sure Enable update notifications is checked if you want to receive notifications when you log onto the NAS.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to start the update process.

You can also click on “Manual Update” to upload an OS update package downloaded from the ASUSTOR website. Note that once you’ve updated to 4.3.0, you won’t be able to downgrade to an earlier version of ADM.
