NSA325 - can't load MetaRepository

Post by stagger321 » Wed Jun 13, 2018 8:23 am

Hi there,

Starting to use my NSA325 again after a period of not using it.
As I have Win10 PC's I need to load SMBv3 on the NSA325 so I can see the NSA shares.

Ideally I'd want to load MetaRepository, then Entware-ng, then SAMBA 3.6.25, but I am having issues.

The instructions for MetaRepository say you have to " Enter the url http://downloads.zyxel.nas-central.org/ ... ypkg-repo/ in web_prefix, or download it here. This file (web_prefix) should be put in \\NAS\admin\zy-pkgs\. "

I have this file in /i-data/md0/admin/zy-pkgs . Is that right, because when I restart the NAS I don't see anything new in the Package list - after I update the list?

Thanks.
Cheers

Just to add, I have tried this both my old FFP pen drive in place, and without.
This makes no difference.

Update:
So it looks like the DNS settings on the NSA325 were causing the issue and I could not ping the download site.
Added the Goodle DNS setting as static and I have MetaReposity installed (after a couple of false starts where it partially installed and I had to remove it via a putty session).
So I now have MetaRepository installed, and again after a false start/failure the Entware-ng apps in the Package list.

SAMBA 3.6.25 was installed via the instructions. So am getting there.
'ps |grep smb' gives me:
4455 root 5228 S /opt/sbin/smbd -D -s /opt/etc/samba/ZyXELSambaReplacement.conf

So am I done? If so I was expecting the NSA325 to appear in my network list on my Win10 PC.
So near - yet so far.
