First of all you need to be privileged.

local> SET PRIV
password: SYSTEM ( SYSTEM is the default password )


Then you look at the internal HELP utility

local> HELP SET SERVER

or

local> HELP SET

One thing......
When you do changes.

SET will update the VOLATILE database
( all settings disappear at next reboot )
DEFINE updates the permanent database
CHANGE updates both

at the local prompt
SET PRIV
then the password - default is SYSTEM

then
HELP SET INTERNET
will show the help

DEFINE INTERNET MASK x.x.x.x
DEFINE INTERNET ADDRESS x.x.x.x

then reboot the server

Don't forget the gateway ...

DEFINE INTERNET GATEWAY xx.xx.xx.xx

and possibly some hardcoded hosts if your not setting it up to use DNS ...

DEFINE INTERNET HOST hostname ADDRESS xx.xx.xx.xx

With some of the later releases of DNAS, there is a wizard to help configure the IP and other parameters. From a priv session, run the "WIZ" and choose "I". Enter the correct values or take the default.

Also, with the V3.6 you can now ave all configured parameters to the flash card as backup. The card can then be moved to a replacement or a new DECserver for quick configuration.
