  OS Change on W4000
Posted by: bkl63 - 01-24-2018, 01:16 AM - Forum: NAS from 2 to 5 bays - SMB - Replies (1)

I've been toying with the idea of an OS change for a W4000 as the Windows NAS just doesn't like working with Mac's and that happens to be the majority of the Environment the W4000 is in.  Anyone try anything like FreeNAS on one?   Does Thecus' Linux NAS work on one?

  Correct procedure for FIXING and expanding RAID5 set
Posted by: platypus - 01-19-2018, 11:37 PM - Forum: N7510 - Replies (2)

Hi all,

Happy New Year!

I have a N7510:

  • 7 x 8TB HDDs which are on the HCL in a RAID5 configuration
  • One of the HDDs is degraded
  • It is currently switched off
So what I am planning to do is turn on N7510 AND THEN replace the degraded 8TB HDD with a 12TB HDD which is on the HCL (Seagate  ST12000VN0007 12TB IronWolf).

So then I will wait until the RAID is rebuilt.

Then I will replace each of the old 8TB HDDs with the new 12TB HDDs, waiting for the RAID to be rebuilt. (As they are out of warranty, etc.)

  1. Is this the correct procedure?
  2. Should I upgrade firmware after I replace the degraded HDD?
  3. I am assuming after I replace the 7 HDDs the capacity will got from 48TB to 72TB. Is that correct? There is no issue with EXT4 limit being reached?

  [N4560] Upgrade to a new Nas
Posted by: pitipilot - 01-11-2018, 05:33 AM - Forum: N4520/N4560 - Replies (3)

Hello there Smile,

I want to upgrade my Nas system to another Nas.
My System is :
- N4560
- OS6.build_341.2 
- 4x WD 4TB in RAID 5 (12 TB availables, no spare disk)

It seems that my nas will die soon.
I'm afraid to lose all my datas that's why I want to upgrade to another Nas.

My question is :
- What kind of model I should choose if I want to preserve all my datas ?

  BAFFLED!!! N4520 displaying very bizarre behaviour
Posted by: DeNiro - 01-07-2018, 04:05 PM - Forum: Others - Replies (1)

Hi all.

I had the NAS turned off for a while and now when I boot it it'is behaving very strangely. Seems to take forever to boot and when it has, if you press the power button, you only get the option to shut the NAS down or not. Pressing any other buttons does nothing.

When I connect to it via a browser, the backups I had created to backup to another NAS (not Thecus Confused ) no longer work. When I look at the config for each of them, the path for each folder gets preceded by a number. For example, if I had three folders called Tom, Dick and Harry, if I go to either edit those backups or create new ones, the folders now read 1Tom, 1Dick and 1Harry. If I reboot the NAS those folders then change to 2Tom, 2Dick and 2Harry, yet if I browse to the locations through Windows Explorer, all the folder names and Shares are exactly as they should be! Got me completely baffled!!

Anyone experienced this and can shed some light on it for me and how to resolve it?

  Dossier publique en lecture seule
Posted by: mquisuisje1 - 01-05-2018, 10:59 PM - Forum: Général [French Support] - No Replies


Dans mon entreprise nous avons 2 Thecus. le N7700pro (firmware V5.03.02.8) et le N10850 (V2.06.02.10).
Voici ma problématique:
Par défaut un dossier publique est en lecture/écriture pour tout le monde.
Moi J'aimerais créer un dossier publique en lecture seule et pourvoir donner accès à certaines personnes pour l'écriture.
En pratique si je sélectionne ce dossier et dans "configuration samba", je coche lecture seule. J'obtiens bien ce que je veux mais je ne peux pas donner un accès à l'écriture via ACL à une personne car cette option est grisé.
Avez-vous une solution pour résoudre ce problème?
En vous remerciant par avance

Et bonne année à tous

  N4520 takes about 90 min to boot up
Posted by: bluebaer33 - 01-03-2018, 06:18 PM - Forum: N4520/N4560 - Replies (1)

since a week my N4520 ( OS6.build_341.2  with 4 Seagate 3TB NAS harddisks)  does take about 90 min from power on to be available on the Net.  When I tried to access the officialNAS application pane, the system would come back with aq message, that it is in an 'offline mode' and thre is no possibility to add or remove any applications.
Is there a possibiilty to upgrade the system to the OS6. ?  Or are there other possibiilities to get tthe system back to a stable sworking status again? 
due to the significant number of issues, which occures recently with this device, The data is well backed up.  So if I need to swipe off all data would be still OK for me.
But the Box has been too expensive to put it tot he garbage collection already after 4 years.
Please could somone tell me, what options do exist.

Accurate copy of the message:
The offline mode could only update system file or install NAS application. Any other activity such as remove NAS application could operate while Internet access is available.

Thanks alot for your help

  How to manually change module version?
Posted by: kos - 01-02-2018, 08:46 AM - Forum: Third party modules - No Replies

I have some modules that have been updated from within the module itself and therefore the module version shown at the module management page of my NAS (n4200eco) doesn't correspond anymore to the actual module number.
Can I change the module number that is shown on the module management page myself by altering some files?

  N4520 dead??
Posted by: ayubaba - 12-26-2017, 01:34 PM - Forum: N4520/N4560 - Replies (2)

A few days back, i saw NAS stuck at "Booting...." message for hours, thus decided to pull the power and connect again. This method worked previously, but this time, after connecting the power, NAS powered on with  just Power and network light and display's first row lit-up with blocks (no text). The white LED on harddisk lighted up to but no disk activity LED.

The NAS stayed in this stage for hours and was not accessible on network or telnet or SSH. Do you think has the box died? Any no. of power cycle did not fix it.

Assuming that somehow firmware corrupted, I have prepared USB update but NAS did not access the USB. Once NAS started. USB dongle blinks for once and remain off later on. Thus not possible to restore it back.

But, it was start of problem. I assumed that box died and my data is safe. I had 2 raids in the system:

1. Raid 5 - 3 x 3TB
2. JBOD - 1 x 4 TB. (back-up for Raid 5)

First I tried JBOD disk to read outside on laptop using SATA-USB connector and miserably failed. UFS explorer correctly recognize it but does not build raid as it looks for 2 or more disks. The disk partitions are not correctly recognized in Fedora/ubentu. Thus I am left with a useless backup disk that is not readable outside the box. Any suggestions?

Second, I tried 2 RAID disk and found UFS explorer reporting big partition as RAW. It did build the RAID but only RAW, so worthless for me to retrieve data. I have yet to gather courage to connect them on linux.

Please help me to end this misery with your suggestions and I will keep updated on progress.

Ticket logged to Thecus support (LAT-449-45885) and awaiting some conclusive outcome. So far I have received standard replies.
