Re: Toshiba Magnia SG20

Do you have an admin icon on your desktop?
if not type in the ip addx and see if you go to the admin.
on network connections , right click on my network places, click map network drive,
select a drive letter and then browse for the two folders on the "myserver" select one of them and click apply or ok. the drive will show up in mycopmuter do the same for the other folders
as far as the log in is concerned it is best to set a level 3 user name and pw on the server then do the same user name and pw for a new windows login user.

Windows vista is not detecting lacie network space 2 i am trying to install a lacie network space 2 (1T) on a home network. i use windows vista icw avg free virus software. i installed the latest...

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!

I have a FIA POPNETSERVER 4600 with no Software or Docs HELP!!!

The IP-address probably is provided by a DHCP-server on your network. Login to that DHCP-server, and look at the list of "active" clients, i.e., computers that have obtained an IP-address from the DHCP-server. One of the IP-addresses should be allocated to your FIA box.

Rather than "flatten-and-rebuild", you probably should investigate new software and new hardware to replace it, *BEFORE* it "dies", forcing you into a "panic-repair" situation, i.e., you need a "BCP" (Business Continuation Plan) which proactively addresses the non-availability of your "unmanageable" server.

Yellow machine server.

Is it just the fault led, let the machine run for a while and see if it starts rebuilding the drives, if it is NEW and you have just installed the drives and never installed the software then you will get a fault I have the q400t which is the platnum version tho they still call it the p400t if you have just received the server then what u must do is power off the server plug in the netcable into one of the 8 lan ports run the install till it tell's you to turn it on then hit next then follow the instructions to setup the server

Need Infrastructure Hint

If you need to store this data for several years, it's going to be a huge machine.

I solved a similar issue by using a standard PC and fill it with disks, and then run Freenas on it. It's BSD based, gives you NFS, SMB/CIFS, iSCSI, FTP, HTTP/WebDAV, Apple, ... connectivity in an open source package, ready to go, easy to manage. it supports doing software Raid 5 with a bunch of disks, so stable and secure. I even lost a disk last week, and replaced it with another one. After 2h the system was 'OK' again...

If you really need huge storage capacity, go for a 'standard' storage server (supermicro for instance) that can store 24 or more disks... You have them in several brands, and the SuperMicro ones aren't that expensive.

Put in a bunch of inexpensive disks (500GB SATA-II disks are really affordable these days) and create a RAID5 array out of all these...

If you want to be even more secure, go with hardware Raid controllers. We use 3Ware/AMCC controllers all the time.

If you got the money, Sun just released a couple of 'Storage Servers' in their 7000 series... Go check them out...

Just got a Maxtor MaxAttach 4300 used and need to reset to factory...

Since no one has posted on this I?ll give you my best guess. Disclaimer, I don?t have one of these, Maxtor is now owned by Seagate, they have discontinued support and I can?t find a manual. Having said all of that from what I?ve read this runs Windows 2000 server and allows you to physically connect a keyboard, mouse and monitor to it. I would try connecting these external devices to the box, boot up and try logging in. If you literally don?t know ANY of the passwords you can try booting the system with a utility tool that will find and remove the administrator password. There are several of them readily available (usually Linux based) available for free, here is the link for one: That will allow you to log into the operating system and configure it as you wish. Be aware that this is not supported by Microsoft and could wind up corrupting the operating system. At that point the only option would be to rebuild the server software from scratch. Good luck and let us know how it goes or if you have any other questions.
