How I did it

At first you need: 
- a Linux machine (install and use Ubuntu if you are not experienced with Linux)
- DROPBEAR module installed on your Thecus
- ROOTCMD module installed on your Thecus

Second,   create a key on your linux machine
> ssh-keygen

This will create a id_rsa.pub file in the hidden sub directory .ssh of your home dir. After creation open the file in an editor, you need the full content later ...

Third, open the ROOTCMD module and run the following commands in ROOTCMD
mkdir /root/.ssh
echo copy the content in id_rsa.pub here > /root/.ssh/authorized_keys
chmod a+r /root/.ssh/authorized_keys
chmod og-wx /root/.ssh/authorized_keys

Fourth, get into your Thecus as root (without entering a password) by entering the command:
ssh root@[your thecus IP address or hostname]

Fifth and last, change the password of root with the passwd command.

Remember the password!

From now on you can access your Thecus with:
ssh root@[your thecus IP address or hostname]
After a reboot, it will be asking for the root password.
