Re: Self Testing

Ouch... You didn't say who's NAS device it is? It sounds like you may have a firmware issue on controller. You may need to reset the controller to the factory defaults. I'd suggest that you contact the manufacturer for details on how to do so. They should also have details on how to recover your data. If you can let us know what kind of a NAS device it is, maybe we can find more details on it.

How do I get my files back?

It seems your OS on the NAS has being destroyed some how (maybe a power failure or unattended shutdown...). To recover your files from the broken NAS, I suggest to open your NAS and get the HDD out. Most NAS works with a special embedded Linux system, so it's possible the internal HDD to have ext2, ext3 or ext4 structure wich is completely readable if you connect the extracted NAS's HDD to a desktop of any kind and boot from a Live CD as PartedMagic. Once you boot that LiveCd, you could mount the existent partitions on the extracted NAS HDD (and attached to the system that you've just booted) and recover your files from it. Also you could check the NAS HDD to see what's going wrong with him, also from inside the PartedMagic. For that, you need some Linux skills, but don't be afraid: it's much easy than you figure... And, as final suggestion, mount the NAS's HDD founded partitions as READ-ONLY, to prevent them to be erased/deleted by accident.

In your office network, for sure, you have a DHCP server who gave the IP addresses to all devices for that network and this seems to be the reason for why you could see your NAS. On home, you also need a DHCP server. You don't say anything about you home network. The best idea is to just make a temporary network with 2 devices: your computer and your NAS by connecting the NAS directly to your computer's network adapter, set the IPV4 IP for that adapter to the same class addresses as your NAS was set by default (usually NAS had "192.168.x.y" where "x" could be 0, 1 or 2 "y" could be any value between 1 and 254, but mostly, 1) and try to access it via http to manage him (need a user name and a password). For NAS default address and username and password, consult NAS user manual. Access it with from your preferred browser using: \\192.168.x.y
Once you gain the control, cut off his DHCP service and tell him to accept the IP address from the network defined DHCP. (btw: one normal DHCP server is allowed on one network! Cascaded DHCP also is allowed, but it's a little bit complicated)
Good luck!

Can't Access Public Shares via NFS

You can mount the shares something like this:

mount -t cifs -o username=backup,password=YoUrPaSS // /mnt/nas/projects/

...where is IP of SS4000-E and /projects is the shares folder
and /mnt/nas/projects/ is folder you have created on your Linux box

Hope this helps
Best Regards

There's a 9-pin serial connection on the back, can you use that connection to a terminal to see anything? Also, if you don't have access to the manual, visit this link to download the manuals:
