STEP 1: Create a root symlink in a USB disk
- From Linux, open a terminal window
- Format an USB drive ext2/3
- Create the following symlink on it: "ln -s / theroot"
- Plug the USB drive to Lacie
STEP 2: Use AjaXplorer to access lacie root filesystem
- Go to Lacie Dashboard and browse your files
- Select the USB drive, and select the symlink folder "theroot"
STEP 3: Hack your Lacie
- Edit "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/unicorn/authentication/local/user.py" and "/etc/shadow"
- Replace the "root" hashed password in the following line "root:$1$$1RDUuTsVHjre9juUvuICX.:12542:0:99999:7:::"
For "admin" hashed password, that you can see in "/etc/shadow" "admin:[YOUR_ADMIN_HASHED_PASSWORD]:12488:0:99999:7:::"
- Download "/etc/initng/runlevel/default.runlevel", edit the file and replace "#sshd" by "sshd"
- If everything went fine, now you can connect from any PC using root username and password. See the rest of the tutorials if you want to enhance your Lacie.
- When editing, you'll have to use Linux/Unix line endings. If you're in Windows use PsPad
- Until firmware version 2.0.4 ssh port is 22, from firmware 2.0.5 is 2222
- If you use Windows, after the configuration, you can use PuTTY to SSH access your Lacie
- You can use WinSCP to SFTP access your Lacie to upload/download files
Tested in 2Big Network 2 version 2.0.5.
I think it doesn't work in version 2.0.6. so don't update to that version. If you are already in version 2.0.6, test it. If it doesn't work do a factory reset (see http://manuals.lacie.com/en/manuals/d2- ... to-factory).
If you are in version prior to 2.0.5, test it or upgrade to version 2.0.5 (http://manuals.lacie.com/en/manuals/d2- ... rk2/update | http://lacie.nas-central.org/wiki/Categ ... nformation | http://lacie.nas-central.org/wiki/Categ ... _2#Updates) and then try it.
UPDATE: Tested. It doesn't work with 2.0.6
