You just need java on your PC. It should add java to your path so that typing java works but you may need to logout/reboot/open new shell depending on setup. If you can find where java is you can run ot directly too.

Ok, I ran ACP commander on my windows pc, java is installed on the pc.
then I did your command as
java -jar acp_commander.jar -t 192.168.0.106 -c "echo MAX_DISK_NUM=2 >> /etc/nas_feature"

console is showing
TS-QVHL-EMB80 login: sh: java: command not found

and when i login to console with admin/password and then run it, i get
-sh: java: command not found

does java and/or acp commander need to be installed or copied into this EM session somehow?
If so, I don't know how to do that.

You run it from your pc, it uses the same protocol that the firmware updater does.

In EM mode the username/password is admin/password though you won’t needed it.

That is great news.  Glad it worked! Ok, I'll give it a shot.

But before I do, I'm going to need a login.  When the EM USB ISO finishes booting, it eventually goes to a login prompt.

Also, am I running ACP commander on the EM console?  Or am I running ACP commander from my windows pc?

Thanks.

I was able to install with only two disks by setting the MAX_DISK_NUM to 2. Here is how you can accomplish that:

1. Boot into EM mode again with both drives blank
2. Download ACP Commander from https://github.com/1000001101000/acp-commander
3. install java if you don't already have it installed
4. Run the following command:
Code: [Select]
java -jar acp_commander.jar -t <device ip address> -c "echo MAX_DISK_NUM=2 >> /etc/nas_feature"5. Run the install again with all the debug options set except Update BOOT

Let me know if that helps.

The github page has a wiki with installation instructions etc.
https://github.com/1000001101000/Debian_on_Buffalo/wiki

They are similar in that they are ARMv5 devices which allows them to use the same firmware (just with different kernels). They did the same thing with linkstation firmware for devices of that same time period.

I should probably mention, in the other thread you referred to trying a TS-XEL and this thread referred to a TS-XL. I added support for both at around the same time (though they have pretty different hardware).

I've got more details about the hardware if you're interested:

Thanks, I didn't know.  I'm glad you said that.
Buffalo's firmware is labelled as TS-X series and works for both the TS-X and TS-XE.  So I assumed they had similar hardware.

The ones I have are the TS-XE4.0TL/R5 etc.  The front port slots are covered on these.

I'll read up on the TS-XEL steps, and see if I can get your debian loaded on it.

Edit:
Just wanted to check if these are the right instructions...  it took some searching to get there.  Thanks :)

Storage / Re: LS-WVL gets in a boot loop after every update

The machine is running. I tracked down the old hard drive.  I asked the owner of the disk if he still had the disk. He has. So this evening I drove to his place to fetch the disk. Lucky me he didn't wipe it.

So I booted the machine without any problems from bay two. I installed the WD in bay one. Formatted and let the nas boot alone. I now get messages that disk 2 is missing. But I don't care. The Buffalo will be a backup machine. So if it crashes then that's not a problem. I should make a image of the old bootdisk. So when I have a problem I can just put the image back on the disk.

Shortly after I wrote that I got around to adding support to that device to my Debian installer along with a few of the other older devices.

Installer files and instructions can be found here:

https://buffalonas.miraheze.org/wiki/Installing_Debian_on_MV78100_Devices
https://github.com/1000001101000/Debian_on_Buffalo

I don't believe I've done any benchmarks on this particular for network transfers. On the devices that I have run such tests on it usually seems that I can get more or less the maximum speed from the drive/sata controller/Ethernet controllers when performing raw transfer tests. For end to end tests of random r/w over samba the limiting factor seems to CPU/memory bound.

I've spent a little time looking for guides for faster configurations but never found a definitive guide for maximizing transfer speed for these types of configurations. I'd love it if someone put something like that together.
