Lacie Network Space 1 Tb loses smb connection for windows network

My pc's on the network were suddenly not able to see the network disk anymore. The strange thing is that when I reboot the network disk, windows can connect fine with the disk and I have full access to the shared space. The problem starts after about 20 seconds where you can hear the NAS make diskaccess sounds and then the connection with the windows computers are gone. The error message is: The local device name is already in use.
I am still able to connect through the web interface and the FTP service fine. It feels like that when the disk is turned on, it works perfectly, but it suddenly does something on its own that make it unable to recover for windows network.

SOURCE: Can't Access Public Shares via NFS

You can mount the shares something like this:

mount -t cifs -o username=backup,password=YoUrPaSS //192.168.0.145/projects /mnt/nas/projects/

...where 192.168.0.145 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
ashley

  • When you go to the Connect to Server dialog, you may browse the names of computers that are on your local subnet.
  • You can connect to a server via its IP address or DNS name. If it is required or more convenient in your environment, you may also use other valid URL formats, such as:
    smb://ServerName/ShareName smb://DOMAIN;User@ServerName/ShareName
  • The name of the "share" (the shared disk, volume, or directory) must be specified. You will not be prompted for it.
  • You cannot type spaces as part of the share name when connecting. In place of any space in the share name, type: %20 .
  • When troubleshooting a connection issue, you can ping the IP address of the Windows PC using the Mac OS X Network Utility application (in the Utilities folder). A successful ping verifies a TCP/IP connection between the two computers. This is an important first troubleshooting step when there's no response or a timeout for a connection attempt, since SMB connections involving a Mac require TCP/IP. However, a successful ping does not mean the SMB service is also working or available.
  • Check Microsoft support resources for information about setting up file sharing on your Microsoft Windows-based computer. These may include Help files installed on your PC or the Microsoft online Knowledge Base. For example, see this article for Windows XP information: How to use the Simple File Sharing feature to share files in Windows XP.
  • When troubleshooting an SMB connection issue, use Console, which is located in the Utilities folder. These Console logs may help advanced users identify an issue: private/var/log/samba, private/var/log/kernel.log, system.log . Note that some log files only appear when logged into Mac OS X with an administrator acccount.
  • If you are connecting to Windows XP, make sure that the Internet Connection Firewall settings are not interfering with your connection. SMB uses ports 137, 138, 139, and 445. These ports should be open on the Windows XP computer. This may require "Advanced" configuration of the XP firewall.
  • If you are connecting to a Windows SMB resource, check to see if the firewall is blocking TCP ports 137, 138, 139 and 445. After trying the above steps, you may perform advanced troubleshooting by inspecting log entries in the Event Log of the Windows SMB resource (if you have access to it), and/or the Mac OS X computer's relevant logs in the Console application. If those steps do not help identify the issue, or you do not want to perform advanced troubleshooting, than you should contact your network administrator. It may be necessary to contact your network administrator in some situations in order to grant access to your Mac from the SMB resource, or its host network configuration.
  • Mac OS X uses SMB only over the TCP/IP protocol, not the NetBEUI protocol.

> is this a problem with ... my PC?

Try connecting the drive to a different PC.
If you have the same (intermittent?) problem, then it is NOT your PC which is at fault.

I suspect that your unit is about to _permanently_ fail.
Make a backup copy of all your files, before it does.

Then, exercise LaCie's warranty to get it replaced.

Let's not take this as a solution so much as an intuition. I believe you may have run up against a limit of physical disk space that XP can administrate.

DO me a favor and don't give my rating a thrashing if I'm wrong.

I cant see my external lacie hard drive on my mac. Was part of an ethernet network and able to use ok by 2 imacs and p. All of a sudden not visible anymore.


Just contact www.lacie.com great support. their answer for my drive was to upgrade the drive version and to reboot the drive. Maybe the last thing is enough. For me it worked.

If necessary update driver http://www.lacie.com/nl/support/drivers/driver.htm?id=10156

Follow the procedure below to reset the Network Space to factory defaults:
  1. Move the power switch to the OFF position. Wait for the drive to shut down.
  2. Turn ON the drive.
  3. Within about 3 seconds, flip the switch OFF and On several times.
  4. Immediately turn it ON
If the light flashes quickly, the unit is resetting itself. Attempt to connect to the drive again after about 1 minute using the default username and password (by default, they are both admin.)

You didn't run the EXE that comes on the drive.
I made the same mistake, but did a windows format before running it, so I lost the exe.
