Ethernet Disk (not big disk) setup help

Post by MadScientist » Thu Aug 20, 2009 8:40 pm

I have a Lacie Ethernet disk model 301300 that I received with no hard drives. I added in 2 1TB drives and have been having fits trying to set it up. The restore cd did required substantial manual effort just to install the os (the automatic install would not work because there were no partitions to delete before creating new partitions, etc). I also had to rearrange the locations of the web files to get access to them.

It is now marginally running, but the client software does not recognize any volumes on the device, and much of the administrative software seems to be missing. For instance there is no way to create users so all clients have to log in using .local\admininstrator, and I have no way of changing the account control to local to get rid of the .local for logging in.

Any suggestions (other than C4) would be greatly appreciated.
