Storage / USB ports on TS-XEL and TS1400D
« Last post by JMRiggle on December 29, 2017, 02:11:14 pm »
Just curious what can I do with the USB ports on these Terrastations. 

My old TS-XEL looks like I can add two USB drives to it.  Can I create a mirror array with these USB Drives?  Can I use a couple of 8 TB USB drives and create a 8 TB mirror?

What about my new TS1400D.  Can I do the same thing?   Is it possible to hook up a USB 3.0 HUB and add say four 8 TB drives and setup a raid 5 using the USB Drives?  Mirroring?

I just added a TS1400D 16 TB unit to my home network, and I'm moving my files from my old TX-XEL/R5 drive to it.

My old TS-XEL has 4 x 2 TB drives in it now.  The specs from Buffalo say the 2 TB was the largest drive that it can support.

Has anyone replaced these with a larger drives?  I'd like to replace them with 6 TB or even 8 TB or 10 TB drives NAS drives. 

Current firmware is 1.66, but I'm going to upgrade to latest firemware after I move my files over.

Can this old TS-XEL handle it?  Has anyone replaced their drives with larger drives?

Does the VM have an IP address in the same subnet as the NAS? Can you ping the NAS from the VM?

I am trying to use my TeraStation LS 441 from a VM, but the Navigator does not find it. Also accessing the drive using its IP does not seem to work.
Presumable the VM's network-settings need to be adjusted - but I am surprised this should be neccessary, because I can access all other LAN-devices from inside the VM as well as the web.

I have set up two adapers in the VM's config: NAT and a "VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter".

I'm hoping that's all it is.  I've had this thing so long I no longer have any documentation for it and am not finding anything on Buffalo's site.

No, they are the wrong size, what country are you based in?
Storage / LS QL on I17 & I14 Messages
« Last post by louviv on December 27, 2017, 04:32:21 pm »
I have a LinkStation QL/R5 Series NAS.  I have the I17 Re-syncing Raid Array message and also the I14 Checking Raid Array message.  I believe the Re-syncing started first then the Checking Raid array was scheduled and started afterward.  These have been running for a couple days now.  The unit's light is blue flashing amber (1 long, 7 short), which seems to indicate I17 is still in process?  I can access the web interface, it takes a little bit to get there, but it does come up - the main screen says "Currently a Disk Format or Disk Check is Being Carried Out" and I cannot access any of the other menus.  My concern is that in the NAS Navigator window it shows UNFORMATTED.  It also says do not power off.  Do I just let it keep going?  Do I risk losing data by letting it keep going or do I risk powering down and pulling the drives out of the unit to rescue data?  Any insights would be appreciated and Happy Holidays to everyone!

Hi All.

I have seen information that suggests 3 Terabyte and even 4 Terabyte drives can be used. Does anyone have direct experience with this product?

Thanks in advance.
