Can't assign ip configuration to NAS 208

Hi, I've moved the Fastora NAS-208 in order to make room for another server. I cannot access it now after it was unplugged for an hour. I tried to reset it. Usually it finds the DHCP Server and obtains an IP addr automatically. Does anyone know the secret to this? I've tried searching the web.

Any help appreciated,

Run Fastora Assist, it should detect your NAS even if no IP address is assigned to the NIC(s). Make sure to connect all NIC(s).

Probably the NAS got the same IP address of the router/switch. Something like Try changing your router default IP address to Look for the NAS now.

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!

My Black Armor NAS keep changing its IP address and can't be accessed most of the time on the network. Hw can i fix this

Configure your network's DHCP-server to *ALWAYS* give the *SAME* IP-address to the NAS -- use the (unique) MAC-address of the NAS's network-adapter to assign a "static" or "fixed" IP-address to the NAS.

Fastora NAS-104WR

It all depends on how mission critical this NVR is, (and how much money you have to spend)

A good rule of thumb is the more redundancy the better, so in theory, if you have the money, you should buy the second NVR, however if you cant afford an entire second unit, you should look at doing hard drive backups of that unit.

If you have any more question, please let me know!

Internet connection

Have you configured your router so that it points your public domain name ? That is, your public/global IP requests should be redirected to your NAS server on your local network.

Did you try to boot the system without all the harddisks inside (keep at least one).
This helped me to bring up the NAS-T4 up again.

Can´t CONNET to AD

You have to make sure that the clock of your NAS is synchronized with the ActiveDirectory. Configure your NAS to use NTP. This should be under the clock configuration screen. Enter the IP address of your domain controller(s) as the NTP server address.

Also, it would be a good idea to make sure that you domain controllers are synchronized with a root time source (on the Internet). In order to do that, run the following command on all you DCs.

C:\>net time /

Of course, your DCs must be able to access the internet on port UDP 123.

Judging by your email address, you seems to be located in Brasil. If you are not in Brasil, you may look for another NTP server

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:
