Question about Western Digital Sharespace 8TB Network Storage System (1072705000)

Open Question

After updating my WD 8TB firmware i no longer have access to it.. it shows up on the network, but using the direct ip and the share name (explorer) method will not allow me in. as if it changed all the security to not allow me in, i have done the reset, even gone as far as pulling the battery and seeing if i could reset it that way. i do not want to lose my data and WD first answer is we will wipe it and fix it under an RMA however i dont want it wiped... so i guess what i am asking is does anyone know a way to back door it, or know of software that essentially sees you as admin to it no matter what (e.g. tier 3 support etc)

SOURCE: Can't access My World Book 1TB through my browser.

Hi Vonnossa

I had exactly the same issue after removing the MioNet software. My device is connected to a router that assigns IP addresses (DHCP) and can easily be accessed using explorer and by mapping the drive so that its available on startup.

The solution I found is as follows.

The unit has a default reset button that will reset the unit User Name to "admin" and the Password to "123456" Without the quotation marks.

The button is recessed in a small hole between the power connector and the network connector on the back of the unit. Its much the same as the small hole on a CD/DVD Drive used to remove discs from a PC that is switched off. You will need a paper clip or similar to reset the device.

Step 1. Switch off the unit and remove all leads.
Step 2. Insert the paper clip into the small hole mentioned above and press (not to hard though)
Step 3. With the clip still in the hole, connect the power lead and switch the unit on.
Step 4. Wait until the circular power button lights up ( this can take anything up to a couple of minutes). Once lit count to 10 and remove the clip.
Step 5. Re-connect the network cable and return to your PC.
Step 6. In your browser type in "wdstorage" No quotation marks.
Step 7. This will open the shared storage manager page. select your option and when it prompts for username enter "admin" and for password enter 123456

Once done you can change usernames and passwords as required.

Good luck
Dave

SOURCE: MioNet does not see my WD MBWE (1T)

I do have a MBWE but have been using the explorer and not Mionet, so just a suggestion:
1. I would uninstall Mionet completely, restart the pc and then reinstall Mionet.
2. I would also try assigning a static IP for the MBWE; this can be set through your router's setup page;

If you're following anyone of these two and want to post response please do so, and good luck !!!

SOURCE: Flashing blue rings

The alternating flashing between the inner and outer blue rings means the drive is currently in Raid Degraded mode per KB article 1480. You will need to have your drive serviced. If you are able to access the device's Shared Storage Manager you should find a Drive Status: Drive (A or B) failed. If you can access it, you might be able to re-create the raid by replacing the bad drive (they're labeled A and B internally with a sticker so you'll know which one to replace) -- it's generally recommended that you first go through the warranty process though:

KB Article 915 and KB Article 8 will start you on the RMA process.

1-800-275-4932 can assist.

SOURCE: mionet application doesn't show files in subfolders of shared folders

I am having the same problem, but I have a solution. I don't know if its a permanent solution though. You have to setset mionet though the drive. Enter your drives ip address into your web browser and go to the mionet section. One option is to reset mionet. That has worked for me so far, but its useless if your not on your home network.

SOURCE: Can't map network drive WD Blue ring edition

The Failed Mount issue is usually caused by Internet Security settings. The most common way to resolve it is to add the following files/ports to the exceptions list of your firewall(s) -- in some cases you will need to add it to the Windows Firewall, even if you have another Firewall installed as well:

MioNet.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\jvm\bin\MioNet.exe)
MioNetManager.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\MioNetManager.exe)
ServiceStatusGui.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\ServiceStatusGui.exe)

These ports are also required for MioNet to create a drive-letter for remote drives:
TCP In/Out 443
TCP In/Out 445

Mapped nas, but there is no open option to access the


If you have mapped it, you should see the public share in my computer.

If you don't see it there, then try remapping it again, by doing the following:

Right click on my computer > select 'map network drive' > In the folder option type: \\**IP address or name of the drive as you see it network**\public > select 'finish'. If this is executed successfullymt he drive will appear in my computer with a drive letter (normally Z: - If you left this option as it was). It would be named either by it's IP address or the name, depending on which one you used to map it with.

Hope this helps!

Tip

Windows File Sharing And The Dangers Of NetBIOS


NetBIOS is a Windows File and Print Sharing protocol, and it uses TCP/UDP ports 135, 137,138, and 139.

* TCP/135 - RPC: This port is potentially quite dangerous. Remote Procedure Calls are requests from one machine to another for service. The RPC service acts as something of a facilitator, or go-between, between the client making the request and the machine being asked for service, i.e. a request is made to this "end-point mapper service" and then a port is allocated dynamically to the service being requested. This is similar to the RPC functionality found in the Unix world, and although it's not technically a "file sharing" port, it ties heavily into Windows networking in general.

* UDP/137 - NetBIOS Name Service: This port is used to attain name resolution for NetBIOS. Think of it as NetBIOS's version of DNS or ARP. It's simply a way to use something you have, make a query, and get something you want in return. For NetBIOS it's from a NetBIOS name to an IP, for DNS it's a DNS name to IP, and for ARP it's from IP to hardware address.

* UDP/138 - NetBIOS Datagram Service: This port primarily allows the SMB browser service to populate the browse lists seen when using "Network Neighborhood".

* TCP/139 - NetBIOS Session Service: This is perhaps the most known Windows port of all, as it is used to transfer files over TCP. This is both the port that NULL Sessions are established over and the port that file and printer sharing takes place on. If you are considering restricting access to ports on your Windows machine, this one needs to be on the top of the list.

NOTE: By disabling NetBIOS, all existing file shares must be shared using the IP address, rather than the NetBIOS Name, or else the share won't work.


How to disable NetBIOS in Windows 2000:

  1. open Windows Explorer
  2. Right click on My Network places and select properties
  3. Click Internet protocol TCP/IP and select properties
  4. Click on Advanced and then WINS
  5. Select Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP and click ok
  6. Restart your computer
  7. If Windows displays "This connection has an empty ... " message, ignore it and click ok
How to disable NetBIOS in Windows 95/98/ME
  1. open Windows Explorer
  2. Right click on My Network places and select properties
  3. Select Internet protocol TCP/IP and click Properties
  4. In NetBIOS, clear "NetBIOS over TCP/IP" check box and click OK.
How to disable NetBIOS in Windows Vista/7
  1. Click Start, and then click Network. (Or you can click Start, type ncpa.cpl into the search box, and press ENTER).
  2. Click on the Network and Sharing Center, and then click Manage Network Connections.
  3. Right click on the Local Area Connection or the connection you are using, and then select Properties.
  4. Select the Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
  5. Click the Advanced button under the General tab.
  6. Click the WINS tab.
  7. Click the Disable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP button.
  8. Click Ok.
  9. Restart your computer.

Cannot connect to Dlink DAP-1522 at 192.168.0.50. Unit is plugged into home network router.


Hi. Is this to change its settings?

Plug directly in the DAP-1522.
Set your PCs network settings under TCP/IP, alternate config:
IP Address: 192.168.0.10
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.50

Give it a try.

Mionet application doesn't show files in subfolders of shared folders


I believe you have a choice of using either the web interface or the desktop version of Mionet when you are on the same network (LAN), and as you mentioned both of you have no problem when you are on the same network as the NAS drive (MBWE) is.

When you are out of the local network where your NAS drive is, the only choice you would have is the web interface of Mionet. Eventhough you may have installed the desktop version of Mionet tool on a remote PC, I don't think you can access through that desktop tool. Sorry !!!

Use two computers with one printer


Printer Sharing (This is good for Windows 2000, XP and Vista)
Sharing will be very easy if your network is working.
You need to consider the computer where the printer connected as the "Host" and the other computer that wants to print to that printer as the "Client".
Before you do such sharing, you need to acquire each computer's IP address.
You can do it by accessing MSDOS Prompt and typing in ipconfig/all. Write down your IP addresses and the share name on a paper.
For your Host:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print on direct bi-directional connection (such as USB).
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Sharing >Share this printer >Type in your share name, good example is PRINTER (this is case sensitive).
For your Client:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print, same with the Host.
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Properties >Ports >Add Port >Add local port type in \\ (the IP Addressof the Host) \ (share name), click OK.
ex. \\192.168.1.3\PRINTER (watch your backslash, no spaces)
*Term used is "Printers" for Windows Vista and Windows 2000

Limit or no conectivity problem


I understand that you are using the Windows Internet Connection Sharing to share your internet connection to your other computer.

If you don't have a router to share the connection then you are using Windows ICS connection.

When you enable ICS, the network adapter connected to the local area network is assigned a static IP address of 192.168.0.1.

You can check this site for more information
http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/ics_xp

You can try to connect the two computers first without the internet connection.

Example : PC A 192.168.0.2
You can set the IP addresses manually, just set the tcp/ip properties and from that area you can set the IP address manually.

And for PC B 192.168.0.3
You dont need to set the ip address for the gateway and dns since you are just testing the connection of the two computer.

They should belong to the same workgroup example HOME and set the computer name to PC1 and PC2.

You can right click MY COMPUTER then select PROPERTIES then you will able to see the computer name.

To start the wizard
1.
Choose Control Panel from the Start menu.
2.
Click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Set up or change your home or small office network.
