"Drive not mounted" for backup to USB drive on LS-WX4.0TL
« on: September 29, 2013, 11:28:40 am »
I am trying to backup to an attached USB drive, but I get the following error:

usbdisk1: drive not mounted

I formatted the drive in the ext3 file system on a Linux PC. That PC can successfully mount the drive.

I scheduled a simple Immediate backup job with the LS-WXL250@usbdisk1 at the target. I get the following text in the log file:

-------- BEGIN BACKUP 2013/09/29 10:12:35 array1/company/Corporate -> LS-WXL250@usbdisk1 --------
usbdisk1: drive not mounted.
-------- END BACKUP 2013/09/29 10:12:35 array1/company/Corporate -> LS-WXL250@usbdisk1 --------

Any idea what could be wrong.

I am using firmware version:

1.64 (DTCP-IP:1.64-20121203)

I downloaded firmware version 1.65 from the buffalo support site and try tried to run LSUpdater.exe. The updater program found my LinkStation but it complained that I had the wrong admin password. I used the  admin password that I use to access the LinkStation from the browser. However, it did not accept that password.

Has anyone experienced a similar issue? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
