Solved Storage Threads / Re: LSQV with 7 red led flashes
« Last post by TimN42 on August 17, 2017, 08:38:41 pm »
Hi Davo,

I have an old back-up, I really need the data on these drives.

I'm running RAID 5, the reason I have the NAS so if I have a HD crash I can rebuild.

What are my options?

Not good, do you have a backup?
Solved Storage Threads / LSQV with 7 red led flashes
« Last post by TimN42 on August 16, 2017, 11:37:04 pm »

I shut down and locked-up my LSQV while on vacation. Now that I'm back, I plugged in pwr and reconnected Ethernet to my gateway to discover it won't connect, giving me (7) quick Red LED flashes. The (4) drive LEDs are Green.

I can't connect via NasNavigator2 nor IP address.

Any suggestion? I have lots of data on this NAS I don't want to lose.

Since the network share is accessed using the SMB protocol it cannot be mapped unless you are on the local network. That is the nature of an SMB share is true for any network file share. You can access the files remotely using the WebAccess feature but that won't function the same as a mapped drive.

Depends on the Terastation.

The 4400 can only back up to another tera/Linkstation, any USB disk or to Dropbox or Amazon s3.

The 5010/3010 series can back up to a different manufacturer's Nas using rsync.
Storage / Mapped drive access from web (LS520D)

I have mapped My LS520D drive to my computer as "Y:" drive.
And of course, via LAN that folder is accessible.

But is there any way to access My new Y: drive from outside of LAN?
It would be wonderful to have feature like mapped Google Drive with this NAS.
Files would be instantly available, without using web interface.

If anyone have any ideas, I'd love to hear them. =)

The manual doesn't mention using any storage drive from elsewhere, just that you can make backups to other tera/linkstations.
Storage / Problem connecting to the server "Music_Backup"
« Last post by pacoinmass on August 15, 2017, 09:40:56 pm »
I noticed today that I'm unable to connect to my LinkStation LS-WTGL509 (LS-WTGL/R1-V3).  When I try to connect using OSX's Finder, I receive the following message:

There was a problem connecting to the server "MUSIC_BACKUP".  The version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported.  Please contact your system administrator to resolve the problem.

I'm able to login to the web interface and Finder does connect me as a guest.  I've reset the password through the webinterface, however I still can't connect through Finder.  And I couldn't find an option to update the firmware through the web interface.

I'm able to connect to 2 other Buffalo NAS drives after their firmware was updated to 1.73.  Both of these are LinkStations:  LS-VL and LS-XHL.

I'm running Sierra 10.12.6 on a recent MacBook Pro.

Has anyone else run into a similar problem (search didn't turn up similar issue)?  Any help to resolve the issue would be appreciated.  Thx.
Storage / Re: array2 degraded on TS4400D

I've managed to get it to say raid2 array failed now but still no luck getting the array rebuilt. I think I'll make a full backup again and wipe the whole thing and start from scratch.

I must say though, the documentation and support for this business oriented product is terrible. If anyone reads this and you have an issue with a Buffalo storage device, good luck!
