TeraStationPro II - a couple of questions
« on: February 03, 2009, 02:09:54 pm »
   

Hi,

I am looking at buying a TeraStation Pro II 1TB model but have a few questions before I do, perhaps somebody can help? 

1.  Can this be upgraded by swapping the 4x250mb drives for say 4x500mb, or 4x1TB or 4x1.5TB drives at a later date (whether or not warranty is voided)?

2.  What is the hdd format type (e.g. ext2, fat32 etc)?

3.  Is console (telnet/ssh) access posssible (manufacturer's or custom firmware)?  If so, can you get root access to install 3rd party software?

thanks,

lu

Hello,

 

1. 3 year Replacement Warranty IS voided; 1.5TB drives have not been tested in any units thus far; It has been done rarely but it is NOT SUPPORTED.

 

2. XFS Filesystem

 

3. It is not possible with Buffalo FW on it. I am uncertain of any 3rd party FW, though it would obviously void warranty on the unit and is not supported.

 

Hope that helps,

K
