Re: Correct procedure for moving from 2x2TB RAID1 to 2x4TB??

Morning all Anyone know what daemon logs I should be looking at to debug this share issue. As above, no user shares are working despite them all being set as active. Plus when I create a new enabled share 'test' , and try and create a new subfolder in it via the File Browser GUI it won't - 'Permissi...

Re: Correct procedure for moving from 2x2TB RAID1 to 2x4TB??

Hi Mijzelf, Its not that simple unfortunately. All my User-Created shares are active. As user admin, if I create another 'test' share and try and upload to that active share it won't allow me - permission denied. There is something permission wise that is not enabling the shares properly or scr*wing...

Re: Correct procedure for moving from 2x2TB RAID1 to 2x4TB??

Hi Mijzelf. I had a look at the shares list last night and couldn't see anything obviously wrong with the User shares list, in that they didn't look disabled. I guess I must have missed some subtlety in the GUI to re-enable them. I'll have a look later when I get home. TBH, I am not that confident t...

Re: Correct procedure for moving from 2x2TB RAID1 to 2x4TB??

That's great Mijzelf. I now have an expanded 4TB Volume. :D I'm almost there now. So as per the orig post I only get a short list of mainly empty folders in File Browser, whereas when I check the i-data folder via ssh putty session I see the data is on the drives. I found something on one of your ot...

Correct procedure for moving from 2x2TB RAID1 to 2x4TB??

Hi. Been having a nightmare getting my old NSA325v1 to be viewable by my Win10 PC's and then expanded to 4TB usable RAID1. The Samba side may be resolved (yet to check) thanks to Mijzelf's help, but expanding from 2x2TB to 2x4TB seems to be a real issue. I followed the Disk replacement procedure and...

Thanks Mijzelf. That seems to have allowed me to get a smbd daemon on boot. ~ $ ps|grep smbd 24853 root 5228 S < /opt/sbin/smbd -D -s /opt/etc/samba/ZyXELSambaReplacement.conf I have not really been able to check this with a windows mapped drive, as I have other issues with RAID disk expansion to 4T...

Hi Sorry for updating an old thread, but my smbd daemon is not starting on my NSA325 - and I really need help to access my NSA on my win10 desktop. I have followed the instructions and have loaded MetaRepostory, and the Entware-ng. I have followed the instructions to load 3.6.25, and have rebooted t...

Re: NSA325 - can't load MetaRepository/SMB3

Update: So it looks like the DNS settings on the NSA325 were causing the issue and I could not ping the download site. Added the Goodle DNS setting as static and I have MetaReposity installed (after a couple of false starts where it partially installed and I had to remove it via a putty session). So...

Re: NSA325 - can't load MetaRepository

Just to add, I have tried this both my old FFP pen drive in place, and without.
This makes no difference.

NSA325 - can't load MetaRepository

Hi there, Starting to use my NSA325 again after a period of not using it. As I have Win10 PC's I need to load SMBv3 on the NSA325 so I can see the NSA shares. Ideally I'd want to load MetaRepository, then Entware-ng, then SAMBA 3.6.25, but I am having issues. The instructions for MetaRepository say ...

Splitting my RAID 1 mirror and going to RAID 0 striped

Hi there, I want to change my Zyxel NSA325 v1 with 2x2TB WD drives from a 2TB (use-able) RAID-1/mirrored setup to a 4TB (use-able) RAID-0/striped set-up. I have a second NAS currently backing up all the data from the NSA325. Once this is finished - what is the process? What do I do, remove the secon...
