HELP - Network Space 2 wont boot but can mount partitions

Post by reformedfan » Thu Jul 28, 2011 7:13 am

My Lacie network space 2 won't boot. Blue light just flashes on and off,1 second cycles of the blue light. I have removed the power and tried again but same issue. logged with lacie and they are no good so opened box and mounted the partitions in linux. I can see all the data.

Can anyone help and get this box working again. The last thing i did was try and get sshd working by creating the html page ( i may have done something wrong here).

Thanks
Matthew

You can delete the contents of the 'snaps' directory on partition 9. This roughly equals a factory reset.

Do not flash it, the flash only contains a bootloader. And yes, it is possible to put 'new' firmware on it: Installing firmware on a new disk.
But did you try a factory reset?

Thanks for you help.
1. i deleted the only folder under /sdb9/snap. it was /sdb9/snap/00
2. i will try the new firmware, will my data be ok?

Shame there is no console connection so you can watch it boot

Cheers for now
Matthew

When you skip the right steps (and don't make mistakes), yes. Don't repartition the disk. Don't format the data partition (sda2).

Actually there is.

I will try the serial cable 1st and see if i can debug it. For those reading this thread I found one on ebay for £3. I will let you know if it works
