I have inherited a DS4100 at my place of business.  The people before me didn't document the install.  I am trying to add storage to the DS4100.  However it is asking for a password that I not have.  Is there a default password or how do I reset the password?

Check for the default password in here. You may need to use a utility that will reset the admin password.
