How to format


To format a hard drive or array, select it from
the Target Disk drop box. Choose the file
system desired from the File System dropbox
(internal drives can only be formatted with XFS).
Note that FAT32 has a 4 gigabyte filesize limit
for individual files. If you choose FAT32 for your
file system, you will not be able to store single
files larger than 4 gigabytes on the drive. Use of
the XFS or EXT3 file systems is recommended.
Press Select Target Disk when done, and then
Start format.
Depending on the size of the target hard disk or
array, a disk format may take several hours to
complete. Shares on the LinkStation will not be
accessible during the disk format.
Note: Reformatting a drive will erase all data
on it! Back up any data on the drive before
reformatting it.

Hey there i bought this SANS DIGITAL IR12TB but it didnt come with the cd how could i install it now??.


It should work just plug and play. If that doesn't work you could download a partition manager program

Here is a free one.

200 GB Seagate External Drive, Drive Not Formatted


I hope that the information below may be of use to you

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Sometimes it is possible to remove the drive from the case and install it direct into a computer to double check that the drive is OK
This depends on the interface eg SATA or IDE

If the drive is clicking / pinging then this is the worst noise you could hear from a hard drive as it is usually the "Click of death"

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...

Hard disk replacement for lacie ethernet disk mini 250 gb


I managed to fix mine with a little bit of work.
This website has a readme file that specifies the partitions. You must be using Linux.

http://gpl.nas-central.org/LACIE/ethernet_disk_mini_v2_-_ethernet_big_disk/EDmini_v2_partition_images/Readme

1. Plug the drive in a Linux computer, or use a Linux Live disk.
2. Create all the partitions according to the readme file. Use extended partition for the first "container". Linux Swap for the second partition. Use Ext3 format for the remaining.
3. Extract all the SDA6-8 files with bzip.
4. Use "dd" command to write those images to partitions sda6 - sda8 which you just created with this command: dd if=/dev/home/ubuntu/sda6 of=/dev/sda6 bs=512
5. Substitude /home/ubuntu above for the location where you placed the image files.
6. Once all 3 images have been written, the drive should be good to go. Put it back in the edmini, start it up and see if the website comes up. You may have the "format" the drive from the admin utility once its up and going.

Hope this helps.

use the "dd" command in

Slow file transfer


What is your connectivity to the SAN? fiber or iSCSI? Have you checked the management tools to see if there are any errors on the data paths? If using iSCSI and the SAN and server are in the same network segment, make sure the default gateway is empty for the iSCSI connection. Look at the routes on the server to make sure the traffic is not leaving the subnet through a router and back to the SAN, and vice versa. If fiber then you'll have to use the tools given to check for errors. Ken

Storage Processor A Problem


I'm not an EMC guy, but that error makes me question the connectivity of SP-A to your Management Server. Check the host port status on both controllers to see if they are active. If this is on a SAN, you might check the switch port status going to SP-A.
