Hi folks,
I've succesfully updated from 2.2.3 to 2.2.6 and finallly 2.2.8!
My fault: I've forgotten to install the Patch-backend.signed first (found here in Download Area) as refered in the PDF "How to update 2big" (same location).
Now it's possible to shutdown the 2big via web-interface (or a python-script on Mac or Linux/it's for a d2, must be modified for use on a 2big)
and to wake it up via WOL (switch-position is auto on the back).

Hello Guys!

After read all pages in this topic i still a little confused about the whole process.

I just bought a cheap Lacie 2big Network (version 1) and i dont have the hard drives yet.
For test purposes when i turn it on without any disks, the front LED blinks red and blue, after 10 seconds, power down but the ethernet lights still on.

With only one hard drive conected to bay 1, same reaction.
After reading a lot and look for Lacie support i find out that i need to "install the os" but everything look so complicated.
I'm a Mac user but not expert in command lines.

Can you guys recommend any tutorial that helps me bring back to life my 2big?
So far i have only one disk, after a sucessful configuration i'll buy another one.

I just want to use the original Lacie stuff to backup my computers safely in Raid 1.

Thank you!!!!!


After search more and more i found one guy that succeeded.
He used this method below...:
http://lacie.nas-central.org/wiki/Insta ... s_(2Big_2)
...with this files:
http://downloads.lacie.nas-central.org/ ... s%202.2.3/

So i started follow step by step the command lines and got stuck in:
"Use fdisk to generate this partition table:.

I have no idea how to use fdisk. Right now my idea is use in Bay 1 a disk 320gb disk and in Bay 2 a 500gb, just for test purposes and get to know better the process to use with my future 2x 1tb disks.

Any thoughts?
After this step, it's ok to keep following the command line line by line exactly as it is in the post?

Thanks again!
