  • WhatTheHack was mostly wet and I did not do any hacking on the terastation.
  • The system hosting this Wiki is still VERY unstable and keeps on crashing at last daily since 2005-08-07. I will next swap the RAM (again) and hope for my mainboard to be repaired by Tyan but can not prommise anything :-(

  • Sorry for the longer downtime today
  • What ever happened on firday, it struck hard. It killed
    • the mainboard: which will procude ECC errors in the last MB of RAM (0x?ffff000, with ? beeing 1 for 512MB, 3 for 1GB and 7 for 2GB)
    • one Memory module: will now produce an ECC error at 2MB in the already broken mainboard, will freeze the backup mainboard
    • one disk:
      • the 3ware RAID controller rejects it within minutes
      • IBM's drive fitness test will find a fatal error after about 1.5h
      • Seagate's own test (it's a Seagate disk after all) will just core on the test system.
        • BTW: Seagate RMA suxx in Germany/the whole EU (No advance replacement and they'll send me a replacement drive within 30 days of my old drive reaching them, and if they have a drive in stock it'll still be up to 5 business days).
  • System is back, up and running again. But no RAID and only half the memory and more ECC :-(

  • Some small changes.
  • Sorry for the downtime today. Had a kind of fatal server failure. Mainboard and one harddisk broken. Running on replacement mainboard, but only one disk.
  • Expect more downtime soonish.

  • From Buffalo Technical Support, answering the question "Does the TeraStation support NFS?"
  • Thank you for contacting Buffalo Technical Support. The TeraStation does not support NFS and there are no plans to update it to do so.

Regards,

  • I should have made a backup copy. Buffalo has reverted the official TeraStation description. While the UK version is back to windows only, the US version still lists support for Linux/Mac. Better read it twice, the UK version still lists NFS but no client os support other then windows, WTF?
