Question about Iomega StorCenter ix2 1000 GB Network Storage Server
Recently picked up a unit from ebay, looks good all things in place , steady blue light that would indicate drives are all ok, but nothing on the NIC lights all off no one at home. Connected directly to the MAC Book Pro to get going and check things out.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

The IX2 doesn't have white indicator lights. The IX2-200 does which would mean that the device is healthy and ready for use.
Since you are directly connecting it to your imac via ethernet cable which is the only way to connect to the device as the USB's are hubs.
First make sure you computer is getting an APIPA address 169.254.x.x (x represents randomly generated numbers by the computer), do a factory reset (depressing the reset button on the back for 4-5 seconds) which should restart the device, open a Terminal window (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal) and type (without the quote marks) findsmb and hit enter. You should see your device populated on that list and you should also see an IP address associated with the device. Open an internet browser window and type the devices IP address into the address bar without the "http://" in front. You should have access to the device now.
At this point you will want to statically (manually) setup an IP for your device with your networks subnet. Once you statically set the IP. Disconnect it from your computer and put it on the network.
