Unacceptable startuptime software with databases on SS4000 as shared drive


I bought an SS4000 to prevent that i lose all my databases when the harddrive goes down, so far so good ... BUT
Our software runs on a couple of computers (local) and each makes connection to another computer with a shared drive to get connected to the databases.
If we don't use the SS4000 it takes 10 seconds to start our software
If i put my databases on the SS4000 it takes 4.5 muinutes before my software runs ... unacceptable !!!

The databases we use Paradox 7.0 databases, Win XP SP2, latest firmware on the SS4000

Plse your usefulle advise ...

Loss of system access - no chance to backup data before fw-upgr.

It may be possible to remove the drive(s) and put them in another system and from that system using those drives as data only drives (not boot) to copy any files which are needed to be backed up.

I have done this a number of times (please note that I am talking about single desktop systems here), every time it has work like a charm.
If the drives are IDE, you need to set one drive at a time (if more than one IDE) as the slave drive. Once the drives are correctly set, then proceed to start the system and copy your data to the media you want.
If the drives are scsi, set them accordingly on another system and number them as slaves or non-boot in the scsi controller bios.
Then copy from your slave or non-boot drive(s) to the media you want to put your data.
If you are using a system with some configuration other than single drives...such as some kind of RAID. then you need other help.

Can I add additional drives to Raid 1 in order to expand storage?

I am not familiar with the specific model, but my guess is you can setup another separate logical vlume by using a RAID1 for the new disks. You will not be able to add the disks to the existing volume.

If there is no data, and the array supports it you can delete the existing volume and setup a RAID 5 instead, which will use all 4 disks, as long as they have the same capacity.

CanĀ“t use INTEL SS4000-E to host the files of my database from SQL SERVER 2000

The SS4000-E  is a NAS storage server.  To the best of my knowledge it is not possible to put database files on a NAS.  They need to do on Direct Attached Storage.

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

Can't see the folders after restarting SS400-e

If you check their website, you will find:
Upgrading from a previous version of the firmware (to version 1.4) is a “data destructive” process.
it is strongly recommended that you first backup your existing data to another system in your environment. It is also recommended that you understand your current configuration of users, groups and shares to be able to recreate this under the 1.4 firmware.

Unable to connect

When the LED turns continuous amber colored , it means your RAID is not yet initialized.

- Install the Intel Storage system center console (ISSC) software from the accompagnied cd-rom

- Start the ISSC and have it discovering your storage device (make sure you are in the same subnet as your NAS device)

- Once it discovered the device click "Log on storage console" , it will open up a browser and have you login.

Firefox should work , I however assume you are maybe in a different subnet , and therefore cannot open the page.
If FireFox really doesn"t work , try using IE !

Greetings, I've been using the Intel Entry Storage System SS4000-E as a simple backup network drive for the last few years. It showed up as Drive Z: on all of my Windows machines and I just copied other drives/folders onto it as needed. It's far from the full capability of this device but it's suited my purposes. Recently, I decided to upgrade the drives and increase the total storage space from 2 TB (4 500 GB drives, Raid 0) to 6 TB (4 1.5 TB drives). The software doesn't allow me to make one 6 TB drive, so I made three (X:, Y:, and Z:), with sizes ranging from 1.49 TB to 1.99 TB, accessible as \storage\public3, \storage\public2, and \storage\public1 respectively. I also created the required shared folders using the minimum (200 MB) for both so I could have as much room as possible for large shared partitions. I also took the opportunity to upgrade the firmware to version 1.4, build 709, since I was installing new drives. I backed up some data to the Z: drive (\storage\public1) and filled about 1.5 TB. Then I started copying folders from another system to Y: drive (around 900 GB in all). Everything seemed to be going well until I looked in on the copy after around 800 GB had transferred. Files were being copied *extremely* slowly, like 100 MB in 10 minutes! I aborted the transfer and ran a test to eliminate network issues as the problem. I tried copying a 100 MB file from Y: drive to Y: drive. It took around 10 minutes, as above. I tried the same thing on Z: drive and it was almost instant. Something was somehow causing that part of the network drive to move at a snail's pace. I then accessed the management screen via a browser and got a message saying that one or more drives had either failed or been changed (Disk Change Notification - raid_disks_changedF.cgi). Two tables that show all four disks - serial numbers and capacities - are shown, one table being previous configuration and the second being current configuration. Both tables are completely identical. Clicking on "Scan" or "Continue" resulted in the same message, so I clicked on "shut down" and tried to access the network drive after it rebooted. I had no problem getting into the Z: drive part of it but both X: and Y: weren't being seen at all anymore. I'm aware of the fragility of a Raid 0 and wonder if it could be so easily disrupted during a large transfer such that I face the possibility of initializing all four drives and starting over. I'm at a loss as to what could be going wrong here or how to fix it. I really just want a simple means of copying lots of data over from various networked machines without any additional software. This system worked fine before. What could have happened? Thanks for any help. Bob
