I have an NSA 2401 which seems to be dying. It won't hold on to a RAID array, after a day or two (at most) the red light comes on and it has to start rebuilding the array.

Fortunately I have another identical one, and I've swapped drives between the two, and the error doesn't follow the drives, so I assume it's not the drives.

I'm on the most recent firmware, although I have tried downgrading to an older version - didn't help.

Is it possible to get replacement main boards? Does anyone have a broken 2401 which might provide a spare part?

Or does anyone have any other suggestions on how to get this running again, please?

Many thanks

We have installed several NSA2401a units over the years and have had lots problems when network traffic is high they tend to crash.
We have just had one fail today, a reboot usually brings it back but after 8 reboots it still has a red sys light. I notice that you have swapped the drives to another unit. Does this work by simply swapping or do you need to restore the firmware from the broken unit? Basically I am not sure whether the raid config is stored in the firmware or on the drives. I may have a spare unit if I can successfully swap the drives.
