How to install this Synology DSM update

DiskStation Manager 7.1 is the latest major release for the operating system loaded onto Synology NAS enclosures. I’ve already gone over all the NAS that are supported, as well as what was included at launch in a separate article, so be sure to check that out for more details.

  • Back up your NAS!
  • Visit Synology Download Center.
  • Select your NAS model using the drop-down menus.
  • Click on All Downloads under DSM 7.1.
  • Click on 7.1-42661-4.
  • Select the corresponding folder that matches your NAS.
  • Log into your NAS.
  • Go to Control Panel > Update & Restore > Manual DSM Update.
  • Click Browse and select the downloaded DSM 7.1 update file.
  • Click OK to update DSM.
