Storage / Re-using Drives questions
« Last post by mpkadz on January 18, 2021, 08:07:15 am »
I recently took over IT Support at our church.  We have an old TeraStation TS-WVH2.0TL/R1 (s/n 95835211100026) - that I would like to replace, but have basically no budget.  I was given a TS5400D0804 (s/n 99877120700011) with no drives in it.  The TS5400 appears to be a much newer unit, so I removed the two drives from the old unit and put them in the TS5400.  It boots up fine, but still when accessing it, it still thinks it is the TS-WVH, with the old units name, serial number, firmware, etc. and all of my data. Basically it looks looks like I am still on the old unit.  Is there a way to update the drives to be recognized as a newer unit so I can utilize newer firmware, security, etc.?  I have all the data backed up, so I am not worried about losing it.

Also, the old drive had only two drives, and the TS5400 has 4 bays, but I only had 2 drives from the old unit to put in.  The display is red, so is this an issue and is this setup gong to work?

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Guidelines and more / Linkstation (LS-CHL) Media server problems
« Last post by hamoramo on January 18, 2021, 06:43:55 am »

I have been using Linkstation (LS-CHL) with F/W 1.12 along with my other Linkstation DUO's.

All my other Linkstations are quite well operating on Mediaservers as well as Upnp's in my home network while I can not successfully use my Linkstation as Upnp server in my home network.

All other devices are under mediaplayers section in file explorer but this one is never show up there. (as it was there before)

I had resetted several times but could not be able to successful.

I searched internet to find how to access NAS's Pvconnect page. (I assume this mode is using Pvconnect rather than using a twonky server compared to others).

I can access to this nas only smb access through my mediaplayers and/or tv but quite desperate to to activate its upnp feature as well.

Your helps are highly appreciated.

Your best bet is to connect a monitor to the VGA port on the front to see what's going on.

It might be stuck at checkdisk or something.
Storage / Windows Failed Boot
« Last post by tbritt on January 15, 2021, 01:35:23 am »
Hi there, I own a WS5400RN with windows 2012r2 installed on it.  We recently had a power outage and when I try to bring the system back up I get and error code 0xc0000185. Info: A required device isn't connected or cant be accessed.  All drives are green and the status windows says Boot from HDDx. Does anyone know what that could be?
Storage / Web Access - problem
« Last post by hofagido on January 15, 2021, 12:48:08 am »

I have "successfully" managed setup the Buffalo Web Access and it works great via my home network.  But when trying to access my LinkStation outside of my home network it fails to connect.

Any thoughts / assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I'm in the process of writing everything up and making the process as simple and reliable as possible. I setup a GitHub page to house everything, feel free to give it a try:
Thanks for putting this together. I need to rebuild my NAS (LS441D) and was hoping to find something exactly like this. I'll be working on it late next week, after I get my new drives.
