Storage / LS421DE Create Share before mapping the drive
« Last post by The_NPP on April 25, 2017, 09:08:47 pm »
Panic mode.  Lost my connection to my NAS disks today.  Cannot figure out a fix.  3 questions answered or any solution needed.
I have a LS421DE with 2x 2TB HDs in it -- No RAID.  Basically I back up to one OFTEN and back up the first disk to the second one monthly AND I have shared files on HD #1 that are accessed from my simple home network:  No server, just shared accesses.
I can ping the system and navigator can see the basic unit.  I can also log into the device via IE.
I ran the direct IE link check disk on both drives.  No extreme notices after the checks.

HOWEVER when using the NAS Navigator2 interface to try to map the drive(s), I get a "Create a folder name Share before mapping drive." error.

I learned after purchase that if you reinsert or insert a drive into the system it erases the drive.  I'd love to avoid erasing the disks if possible.

Q1:  If I Delete and then recreate the Shared folder (via the direct IE interface), do I lose all data on the disk?

Q2:  Any idea how i can re-establish contact to the files without losing them?

Q3:  I believe these are formatted in a Linux format that my Windows system cannot view if hooked up directly.  If i create a Linux O/S system and then physically linked the drives into the LINUX machine, should I have access to the files?

Thanks -- The NPP

All of our routers by necessity conform to the ethernet spec so this should work given a good cable run.

Tried all the things you mention. I ran the cables myself, and tested the connections with an Ethernet tester, all 8 are connected and in the correct sequence. I ran it above ground, and put it inside a pvc conduit from the house to the barn (25 feet). I tested the router on short cables to make sure that all of my router configurations were correct and I have swapped the #2 and #3 routers, but no change. I am now running a new wire for the House to Barn and will put Router #2 at one end of the barn, and then add another cable for Router #3 at the other end of the barn. Hope it works. Using CAT6 cable.

So after doing a bit of research it appears that grounding is likely not the problem. I'll assume the cable is already run? Is the cable exposed, run underground, etc? The routers themselves are easily movable, could you bring the barn router to the house and verify that everything works when in close proximity? My first instinct on most networking issues is a cable problem. I assume this is a cable you terminated yourself and not a factory made cable. I'm kind of thinking aloud here, if the barn and house have different grounds then I assume there is no power run from the house to barn, correct? The reason I ask is to find out whether the ethernet cable is running alongside the power, that could cause interference and in many locales would be a violation of code. If all else fails I'd remove the connectors from the cable and crimp on new ones (assuming that you crimped them on in the first place) just to try and eliminate that as a source of the problem.

That's very odd, does anyone know different?

Thank you all for the replies though.

Those units use Windows software RAID. It can be managed through Windows Disk Management.

It could be, that could cause a floating ground between the units.

This is a simple manage on the hardware, like Dell Open Manage, HP Open View, etc.
I have looked on the website and no found nothing.
There is no way to manage Arrays in this solution?
