Question about Anthology Solutions Yellow Machine P400 (250004001) 250 GB Hard Drive Array
I have had mine running for 3 years without problem. Then about a week ago it was inaccessible. I thought it was my computer. NOT. I access my YM P400T from UNIX and Windows systems. I could not access it with NFS from UNIX either. So I logged into it as root (if you can ping it then you probably can telnet into it)...
telnet <your ym p400t ip address>
pw: sos1234 (this is the factory default)
Anyway, I found that samba was not running (which is the smb and nmb services needed to support windows file sharing). It looked as though the box had crashed and rebooted. It was in run-level 2 and should have been in run-level 3. You can see which runlevel it's in by typing
runlevel <press enter>
It will show you a 2, or 3, or "2 3" if it has come through runlevel 2 and 3.
Here's the steps:

Since this time I have had no errors and have used it extensively. I see the fault light come on once in a while and I log in and check the RAID and it says no erros. The syslog shows nothing. No idea why the fault light is randomly coming on. Anyway, I think I'm going to get a micronet raid and copy all the data over there before this one dies completely.
BTW, AnthologySolutions closed their doors without warning. One day all the employees showed up and the doors were literally chained/padlocked shut. I have obtained a copy of the core software and some other items.
There was a usergroup still active in march of 2007 but they appear to be gone now.

I saw on ebay they had some Brand New Diskless versions and One Used Working one. I know it is not a fix but a lot cheaper than the $1200-$1500 they used to be.
