Question about Computers & Internet
You can reset your ReadyNAS Admin password by accessing http://ip_address_of_readynas/password_recovery . If you have forgotten the password recovery answer, you will need to perform a firmware re-installation to reset the admin password.
How to re-install the firmware?You can force a re-installation of the firmware from flash to the disk. This is helpful if you have lost your admin password and want to set it back to default, if errors in your network settings has made it impossible to connect to the ReadyNAS, or if you suspect that the operating system on your disk may somehow be corrupt. The firmware re-installation process will not touch your data volume.
[Note : If nothing works than try reseting ReadyNAS to factory defaults]
How to reset the ReadyNAS to factory default?
Resetting the ReadyNAS back to factory default will wipe out all configuration and data. Please understand this before continuing. If you choose to continue, here are the steps:Power down the ReadyNAS.Locate the reset pinhole.
ReadyNAS 1000S/1100: the pinhole is in the front.
Get a straightened paper clip and depress the hidden switch in the pinhole while the power is off, and then power on the ReadyNAS, keeping the switch depressed for about 30 secs.You will see the drive LEDs in the front blink once at about 5 secs and again at about 30 secs. Release the switch at the 2nd blink.
There will be a 10-minute window where you can use RAIDar to change the RAID mode and/or select the snapshot reserved space. RAIDar will prompt with "Click Setup". If you do not click Setup, the installation will begin with the default settings. Otherwise, it will begin when you've confirmed your option selection in RAIDar. You can monitor the installation progress with RAIDar.
